He’ll teach her the art of seduction…for a price.
Only months before reclaiming his championship title, mixed martial artist Reid Andrews suffers a serious injury. Fortunately, his trainer knows the perfect physical therapist to get Reid healed and back into fighting shape—the little sister of Reid’s best friend. But Lucie is no longer a scrawny little girl, and she’s more than capable of handling a bad boy with a bad attitude.
Lucie Miller needs some professional help of her own. Bookish girls don’t usually land the hot guys, and she’s gone unnoticed by a certain doctor for way too long. So when her childhood crush offers her lessons in seduction in exchange for getting him ready for the biggest night of his career, Lucie jumps at the chance.
But when his feelings begin to change, Reid finds himself in the fight of his life, and it’s not even in the octagon. Now he needs to switch up his game plan if he wants to win Lucie’s heart…before she gives it to somebody else.
I could not warm up to the characters in this book. I found Lucie particularly naive and annoying. There is nothing special that made it stand out from the crowd. The connection between Lucie and Reid felt forced and unbelievable.
This book was a miss for me. I didn’t hate it but it wasn’t great either.
I received an arc of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
