Dr. Siena Carr grew up privileged and continues to live her life that way. She’s used to the finer things in life, has traveled the world, fancy clothes and the perfect boyfriends with perfect jobs. She’s a snob; even her friends call her out on her behavior and unrealistic opinions. All her beliefs are questioned when boxer Tommy Raines, aka the Juggernaut, walks into the ER where Siena is on call.
Tommy is an Olympic medalist in boxing. He’s training for his first professional fight when he receives a cut that needs sutures. Little did he know his life would change forever when Dr. Siena Carr walked into the room. He was immediately taken with her and could not get thoughts of her out of his mind. He doesn’t mind the slight age difference (she’s older) and the fact that their lifestyles are so opposite.
From the very beginning, Tommy seems mature and level headed. He was devoted to his goals and to doing whatever it took to make Siena happy; even if that meant changing some of his, according to her, more ‘immature’ ways. When he finally told her she was superficial and snobbish, she took offense. She always seemed in a constant struggle with their relationship; always too worried about appearances and how others perceived them.
Siena was constantly trying to change Tommy, his clothes, his way of eating, she never seemed happy with him. However, even though Tommy told her what he didn’t like about her but never tried to change her. In fact, he told her that her quirks and differences from him is what makes him love her. Siena’s refusal to come watch him fight, because as a doctor she couldn’t condone the violence, was the final straw. He told her that she couldn’t love him and not support what he did and asked her to leave.
Will she finally be able to accept him as he is and stop attempting to change everything she dislikes? Will she learn to appreciate him for the loving man he is or will her vainness be the end to the best relationship she’s ever had?
In His Corner is a great story with a good message hidden throughout. A definite must read.
While Tommy is the obvious fighter, Sienna is an intelligent young woman who competed--fought--to get into and through medical school, which is still a male-dominated culture. In her position at a top San Francisco hospital, Sienna competes mentally each time a new patient is brought into the ER: she has to make the diagnosis and decide the treatment as quickly and efficiently as she can. That's her "knock out," so to speak.
Tommy is not college educated, but he is ambitious and intelligent. He gauges his own energy as he appraises his opponent in the ring. But Tommy is equally adept outside the ring. At the hospital fundraiser, he sizes up Sienna's former lover and bests him socially and psychologically.
Yes, this book is a romance about class differences, but it's also a dramatic story about two characters who value each others drive and ambition, which makes the sexual tension all the more exciting to read!
Tommy had all the qualities that one would want in a man despite his young age! He had to give up college to care for his mom and he was kind, sensitive and sexy! I admired the fact that he was not willing to give up his identity for Sienna even though he cared very deeply for her. Don't want to give much away but ,sometimes,opposites really do attract !
Would like to see a continuation of their story!
Anyone who enjoys romance literature has a winner here.
I chose this rating because the story certainly merits it and I so enjoyed reading it.
