In His Corner by Vina Arno
Publication date: April 14th 2015
Genres: Adult, Romance, Contemporary
No sex for almost a year could kill a guy, but when you’re the boxer known as the Juggernaut, it’s the price you pay for turning pro. Tommy’s fully dedicated to his craft, until he meets the incredibly gorgeous Dr. Siena Carr. Now he’s looking forward to taking on this prim and proper lady in a wet and wild work-out…
Siena has seen many patients come through the ER, but none as sexy as Tommy Raines. With a nasty cut over his eye, she knows he needs stiches, but after he takes off his shirt, she needs some air. With rock-hard abs and taut biceps, it’s clear this man takes care of his body. And all Siena can think about is letting him take care of hers…
I really don’t get this relationship at all. Siena blows hot and cold. Despite her protestations that she is the mature one in the relationship, she doesnt seem to know her own mind. All it appears that she is certain on, is that Tommy needs to be changed. He doesn’t hang out with the right people, he doesn’t wear the right clothes, he doesn’t drink the right drinks. You get the picture.
And Tommy? He is written with such a very young outlook and approach. I can understand the initial spark of attraction, but getting beyond that is a stretch.
The story highlights their differences. Their depth of connection just wasn’t there for me I’m afraid.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
