Neckbone feels the need to protect Henry from some of the guys that fix the fights. He takes him under his wing and teaches him the correct way to fight and protect himself. He, even, finds a way to get Henry a job playing the piano at a local joint. There are a lot of one on one scenes with Neckbone and Henry. You, also, find a little romance thrown into the mix with Neckbone helping Allison with her theater career. The true test is the finale when Neckbone is thrown into the ring with his best friend, Rollo. Will he make the right decision and end up winning everyone's heart?
The writer of Punching Paradise has become one of my favorite writers. Nik Korpon writes with style and heart. You can feel the character's emotions embrace you and pull you into their story. Their struggles are real. I highly recommend this series and you cannot go wrong with starting out with Punching Paradise.
This story about a down on his luck boxer, going the extra mile to protect a talented young boy, and help his girlfriend hold onto her dream has all the elements of a typical Fight Card novel, but like a cake that does not bake correctly, the ingredients just do not come together in this entry. The plot plodded dully, I never cared for the characters, though I was supposed to, and I did not find the fights that exciting.
This is all my opinion, of course, but I would respectfully suggest you try another title in this series as your first, lest this one be your last.
