Punched by Jacob Chance

Reagan is the one who got away - or should I say the one I drove away? Now, four years later, she’s back to manage the gym where I train. Seeing her everyday is a distraction I can’t afford. I’m so close to achieving the big payoff I’ve been working for. Nothing’s going to keep me from winning this belt - not even her.

Punched by Jacob Chance is a sexy Contemporary Sports Romance takes you on a journey of up & coming MMA fighter Noah Nolan, a tried & true Southie living, working & fighting in Boston.  Reagan, a recent college grad & back in Boston to stay.  She might be his kryptonite, but it's Noah who broke Reagans heart.  Will their history be enough to bring them together, or will the opportunities the big fight could hold tear them apart?

"Anything worth having comes with hard work - or maybe it's anything worth having is worth waiting for."  

Written in first person, from dual perspectives, including some flash-backs, this is a fast read for fans of romantic second-chances.  A definite page turner, this story has a little bit of everything, having to grow up fast, young love, manipulation, heartbreak, will they-won't they, all in the world of MMA fighting.  

I felt like the MMA fighting piece of the story was well written, very detailed in the technical aspects of the sport, where the love story was a little over the top at times, felt rushed & with less focus.  I would have loved for the relationship part of the story to have been told in greater depth, but this is a definite MMA fighting crowd pleaser. 

ARC received in exchange for an honest review.
