I voluntarily reviewed an advanced readers copy of this book.
Meet Keegan Ranger, aka The Punisher, a boxer and Collins Sutton, police office, are an unlikely couple. Each one has a reason why they should not get involved in a relationship. Navigating through the pages and learning about the characters was very interesting. How do a boxer and a police officer get into the same space and feel they don’t need or want each other?
Keegan has been focused on boxing, training and living his life the best that he can. When the book starts Keegan walks into his friend, trainer and father figure house to find he had passed away in his sleep. Lou took Keegan in when he was young and taught him to box and give him a life on the straight and narrow. His passing was a shock to Keegan causing him to take some time away from boxing to mend his broken heart and see if he can continue to box without Lou in his corner. In his will Lou’s final words says, “Don’t go spending this money on crap. You were born the kind of man to change things, figure out a way to make a difference for someone else.”
Meet Collins Sutton, police officer. She moved back home after her mother died to take care of her brother and father. Now that doesn’t sound to bad but her brother has some developmental issues and she feels the need to look out for him and to protect him from the world. Everyone in town knows how he is and has made him a part of their lives. Then a stranger moves into town and turns everything on its ear.
How do two people on different paths in life find what they both need? This book is complex in the story but also how each of the character get to where they are. Does Keegan make a difference in someone’s life? To get the answers to those questions I highly suggest reading this book. It was great reading during a snowstorm and wrapped in a blanket.
NICUnurse’s Rating: First of all, it’s not easy to jump into another writer’s world and build your own within it. I thought this author did a great job framing her story within the parameters set by K. Bromberg’s original series. The characters from that series seemed to stay true to who they were, and Tiffani Lynn’s characters served to enhance this world.
And since we’re talking characters, it was a real breath of fresh air that Keegan, the fighter, was the more level-headed character rather than the typical hothead. And that Collins, the seasoned cop, turned out to be the hothead. I liked that switch very much. Honestly, I just really, really liked Keegan. He’s a good guy who is committed to building a legacy his mentor would be proud of instead of using his fame and fortune to please himself and be a manwhore. All too often in contemporary romance, the fighter isn’t nearly as likable as Keegan. But I did like that Collins challenged him and that he complimented her personality well. There’s usually one main character in each book I read that I tend to connect with more than the other. Typically it’s the heroine, but in this book, it was our hero. (Keegan=major swoon!)
Contender kept me entertained from page one to the end with a character I could really connect with on an emotional level. I found myself mentally cheering for Keegan at every turn. For fans of the Everyday Heroes world, this is a gem of a story that you won’t want to miss. And if you’ve never read one of the EHW books, this is a great introduction to that world.
I give Contender by Tiffani Lynn 4 out of 5 stars!
