The sweet romance between Memphis and Liv is this beautiful budding thing growing in the middle of a whole lot of ugliness. Liv's family, their secrets and their slimy ways... it all just felt so icky, such a sharp contrast to the adorably heartwarming dynamic growing between these characters. It felt like snakes were closing in though, like something was going to come out or something would inevitably pull the rug out from under Liv and Memphis, characters who so clearly deserved happiness after all they'd been through in their lives. I both longed to see what would happen next and dreaded what was to come. I was gripped. I was anxious. I read with warmth in my heart and knots in my stomach the whole way through.
I love a good sports romance but I've found that too often an author will call her character an athlete but you never actually see him in his element. You're just meant to believe he's a baseball player or a fighter or a quarterback because the author says so. That's not Ginger Scott though. She's written several books surrounding athletes and she nails is every time. Watching Memphis Delaney in his element is an integral part of getting to know him, understanding him, falling for his character. Every punch, every black eye, every piece of tape on his hands drew me in to his story, ensuring I was wholly connected to his journey as a boxer. And standing outside the ring watching him spar, as we do with Liv, is a pivotal part of connecting with her as well, coming to understand how the sport has made her who she is and why she's so reluctant to repeat the toxic dynamic of her parents. You can't help but fall in love with Memphis in this book because Ginger Scott gives you so much of him, you'll fall without thinking about it. But you'll fall just as hard for Liv because her struggle with becoming a fighter's girl, being his distraction, his hurdle, his inspiration, is as complicated as it is understandable. I felt all of it. I felt everything. And I absolutely loved it.
I loved this book SO MUCH. It's far more than a great fighter romance. This story is ugly at times, layered with twists and turns, with colorful characters I both loved and loathed. It's exciting the way a superb sports romance should be, it's surprisingly sexy and deliciously romantic and I was completely enthralled. Memphis warmed my heart, had me on the edge of my seat and kept my emotions on edge the entire way through. This book is a TKO, a triumphant love story and a new Ginger Scott favorite.
Olivia Valentine never wanted a boxer. Growing up the way she had Olivia wanted something more than what was provided for her. She discovers the hard way the grass isn't always greener on other sides. She's troubled, guarded, and has a bitter edge to her. Throughout the course of the story as she begins to thaw and make realizations about herself and the kind of happiness she wants readers get to see this deep, multi dimensional character for whom we can really relate to as a person. Her kindness and her ethos keep her strong and whole as she navigates a life she never wanted to come.
Memphis Delaney has one goal. As a broken man from nowhere who never belonged to anyone Memphis sets out to do what his birth father couldn't as a way of giving meaning to his life. He finds himself in the clutches of people who help achieve his goals ... or so he thinks. What he doesn't expect is the upset of the delicate balance on which he so precariously teeters in his quest to become a champion boxer. He's a profound character who knows what he wants. His raw honestly makes him one of the most vulnerable alpha males I've read and that was so refreshing.
The secondary characters in this story allow for great plot thickening as Ginger Scott moves the story between Liv and Memphis forward. Friend and foe alike lend interesting twists and turns to this story that were unexpected yet perfectly woven into the fabric of their lives. But what really makes it stand out is the connection between Liv and Memphis and the how each of them need something so badly just never knew what it was until they recognized it in each other.
With colorful and precisely detailed prose Ginger Scott takes us on a journey of making two lost souls whole again. Her writing affords readers the opportunity to crawl inside her pages and become a part of this world wrought with betrayal, hope, and love. Memphis is a bit edgier than some of Scott's other works, a little more mature but no less compelling in nature. She opens her characters up in a way that makes us feel their emotions while taking them and us through the steps to heal. I'm grateful for the time I spent with Memphis and Liv and think sports romance readers will fall in love with their story.
