First we meet the hero and heroine. Kristen works at the gym Sean will be training at for the next few months. Kristen is instantly struck dumb by lust, and Sean is just as taken with her. Sean tried not to give into the insatiable hunger that grips him whenever Kristen is near. He believes he is not good enough for her, and she is too sweet and innocent for him. He does not want to destroy her. He is still troubled by his past and cannot really see a way that Kristen will fit into his not so glamorous life.
Kristen doesn’t believe that Sean is trouble, only seeing the the man in front of her and the way he brings out all these unknown emotions in her. She wants to explore this intense and all consuming passion they feel for each other. They can only deny those feelings for so long before they succumb to the irresistible pull that their attraction creates. Never has anyone made Kristen feel the way Sean makes her feel, and Sean has these same feelings for Kristen. They share a connection that is more than sexual. They can talk and really enjoy each other’s company. This is all so new to both of them. Sean is not used to seeing one woman, preferring to casually hook up as his fighting and training takes up so much time. Add to that, the fact that he never was interested in having a relationship with anyone, until Kristen, that is.
The short time they have been together, they learn a lot about each other. Kristen was not prepared for all that she learnt about Sean’s younger years. She wants to run away and never look back. But she just cannot give up when she has only began her journey with Sean. She has never felt more passion, more hunger, more contentment, than when she is with Sean. He makes her feel every emotion. He is infuriating and alpha, but impossible to deny. When they are apart, they yearn for the times they are together. Sean is as addicted to Kristen as she is to him. He is still unsure if she can handle all that he is and all that has happened in his life. She does not fit in his world, and he carries a tonne of baggage, the weight of it almost crushing him. He decides to fight for their love, because he just cannot imagine a life without her in it.
As there love grows, so does the drama. With a fight looming, tensions are at an all time high. Sean is ready to ditch the fight, quite happy to make Kristen his priority. This book has such a good storyline. I could not get enough. The words flowed, the author captured all that made up each character, making them so real and lifelike. The story just effortlessly carried you to a different world. One where you get lost and could quite happily stay lost. It takes particular talent for an author to deliver such a riveting story. CJ Martin did that for me.
Knockout really was a knockout for me. From beginning to end, I lived, felt and breathed Sean and Kristen. CJ Martin just got another avid fan to add to the collection. I cannot wait to read more of this author’s work. A fabulous read for lovers of a gutsy, dirty and delicious fighter romance. A 5 Star read that will leave a beautiful, lasting memory.
When Sean first saw her at the gym where he trained her knew he was a goner. She was everywhere. She made her way into his dreams, into his thoughts, she was everywhere and was proving to be a distraction. But despite his past, knowing that he wasn’t good for her he couldn’t or wouldn’t let her go, she was beautiful, sexy and a complicated distraction but she was going to be his Kristen, but would she still want him once she learns the truth about who he really is? Will he be able to ever move on from his past?
This is the first book I have read by C.J Martin and OMG I’m so glad I got to read this book. It’s such a beautifully written epic story of love and enough drama to keep it suspenseful, and keep you turning page after page. This book contains two of the best characters I have read this year with their undeniable chemistry, hot scenes and an attraction that burns through the page.
The book had a strong prologue that completely sets the story with being intriguing and mysterious and left you wanting more.
This book pulls at all your emotions from anger, to heartache, to happiness and luckily this book has a HEA. The characters are genuine and you related to them in some way and when any of the characters went through something you could feel what they felt by how well this author wrote the book by connecting the reader to the characters.
These characters are so completely different but that’s what makes them click.
Kristen lives a normal basic life, living by the same routine day after day. But all it took was one day to change it all for Kristen. She wanted a man to challenge her, a man to make her beg and that’s exactly what she got from Sean. Her normal reserved self is pushed to limit, when she experiences things she never thought possible. Her personality starts to shine through, and her connection to Sean develops further and deeper. On some issues I think she was a bit stubborn in a case of not hearing Sean out on some occasions and just jumping straight to the wrong conclusion before even hearing him out. But being with Sean brought out the best in her, he helps her explore things she never thought possible.
Sean was an incredible character throughout this book. Starting with his dark past he is purely focused on his career in boxing. You wouldn’t have taken him as the type of guy who falls quickly and easily, but I loved the way Kristen was able to break down the walls and steal his heart. He most defiantly stole my heart! Being an Alpha male Sean is fiercely protective anyway but even more so because of his past. Also his personality changes slightly through this book as he become slightly vulnerable due to his love for Kristen but it never makes him weak in fact it makes his fire grow stronger as he becomes to accept that he can trust her enough to share his past with her, something that he has never told anyone before and to see his defences down in that scene really brought home how much his past still effects his everyday life.
These characters’ journey was raw, emotional, intense, passionate, and won't be forgotten.
Overall this book was steamy, passionate, intense, had secrets and a HEA and has left me completely with a book hangover. This book is defiantly one of the best I have read this year and I highly recommend this book for everyone to read!
