TUSSLE is a wonderful story filled with heart, humor, sexual tension and “Oh my gosh, I want Jesse Gunn” moments. From the get go, I found myself captivated. Tussle introduced me to a world I was completely unfamiliar with. It’s evident that either Mr. Chance works in the wrestling world or he took the time to do his research. The details in this book are some of the best I’ve read in years.
I was pleasantly surprised that it took awhile for Jesse and Lilah’s romance to develop. This is a delicious slow burn that had me dying for Jesse and Lilah to finally do the nasty. Jesse Gunn has the body of a sinner but the patience of a saint. Swoon. Personally, I would have jumped on Mr. Gunn’s ‘gun’ the second time he asked, “Why haven’t we had sex?” Yes, Jesse was HAF. Another swoon.
There are so many things I love about TUSSLE. The storyline. The main and secondary characters. The banter. The sexual tension. The details. Jesse Gunn.
The only thing that prevented me from finishing TUSSLE in one sitting was work. As soon as I closed my kindle, I found myself itching to watch a wrestling match, hoping to find someone similar to Jesse Gunn.
I want to be one of #JessesGirlz! This book was fun, flirty and absolutely a joy to read. I was engaged and entertained throughout. Did not want it to end.
So here is where I admit I am not a wrestling fan. I don't hate this sport, I just don't get it. That said, Tussle was not only a great read, it was a learning experience for me. Makes me curious about wrestling. I'm not saying I'm going to watch it but I do have a better understanding of what it's all about. Even a novice like me can easily see that Jacob Chance knows wrestling and how to articulate this sport to people like me who are ignorant to what wrestling is about.
That said, Jesse is a professional wrestler. He is sexy, witty and doesn't give up on what he wants. And he wants Lilah. I loved the chemistry and banter between them. Lilah likes Jesse, however since he works for her family's company, she considers him off limits. She persistently fights her attraction for three years until Jesse finally breaks her determination to keep away. Their relationship was relatable and believable. Any interactions they had were enjoyable to experience. Yes, their chemistry was scorching. However, they also had respect for each other. While Jesse was determined to get his girl, his persistence was not over the top. He was a gentlemen. My latest book boyfriend!
I did not find this book angsty nor was I ever frustrated with any aspect. Tussle is well written and told in both H/h perspectives. The intimacy between Jesse and Lilah was hot, the humor between them was even more endearing. I truly loved this book. I can't wait to see who of the secondary characters will have their own book next.
I loved every bit of Tussle, Jacob left no detail unturned in this one. The storyline, the leads and sub characters where all on point and relatable. You cannot help but fall in love with Wrestling Star “Jesse Gunn” he’s Hot AF, Persistent, Talented and Hilarious. Underneath his wrestling persona is a gorgeous guy with a heart of gold and he’s not afraid to say what he wants. What he wants is a gorgeous blonde named Lilah who just started working at WCW (World Class Wrestling) and just happens to be the daughter of the CEO. As Jess finds out she’s a stickler for rules and who is definitely not falling for his persistent charm? Or does she?
You better believe Jesse is a game player and he plays to win.
Tussle will give you a new Book Boyfriend who melts your heart and give you some laugh out loud moments. His witty smart mouth and his sexy charm will have you salivating on every page. It was a riveting read from the Prologue, but that epilogue is where you elevated this book to brilliant status for me.
As a fan of Jacobs from his very first book I can say this is his best work yet. The research, the character detail, the storyline make this a book I cannot recommend enough.
It’s Bright, Witty and Sexy AF

'Jesse Gunn is a thorn in my side,or should I say a thorn in my heart?'~(Lilah)
This is another well written sport's themed story, (which I think are my favorite's from Jacob) that grabs your attention from Prologue to End,and again it was a privilege to read it (a couple of times actually)... I LOVED IT!
We begin with Lilah,(22) who is about to start working for her Family's business (World Class Wrestling) and on her first day,meets Jesse (27) on her way in,with no idea of who he is,agrees to meet after work....heads in to meet with her dad-to get the rules/expectations of her job...and one of those important rules is a no dating co-worker's policy...and of course,when she runs into Jesse later..discovers he's an upcoming wrestler...and therefore off limits!!
Three years down the line,Jesse's been relentless in his quest to have something more with Lilah, each time she refuses,he keeps on trying,she's determined to keep things professional yet there is a mutual attraction,that slowly builds along with a fair amount of humor,before the inevitable hotness happens.I really enjoyed the back and forth between them both, that Jesse's not just 'Jesse Gunn'~the persona he gives his fans,he shows Lilah he's more than that,which surprises her,and makes her face the fact she wants more. The side character's that are introduced along the way~Jesse's sister Ronnie,and his best friend Wyatt(possible future book for them??) also provide some humor to the story.
The attention to detail,especially with the action of the wrestling side,is enough to make you feel as though you are actually there,giving you an insight into what goes on behind the scenes, adding some slight drama/angst moments towards the end,will Jesse and Lilah be able to be together? You'll have to read for yourself to find out!!
This story just made me melt right into reading it and Jesse made my heart go crazy from the start!!!
So we have Jesse who is a professional wrestler and Lilah who works for the company Jesse works for... not only that but she's the bosses daughter meaning shes out of bounds.
These pair happen to meet on Lilahs first day on the job and the sparks immediately start to fly... cue 3 years down the lie..3 years where Jesse has been a great friend.. fab chats... visits at work... small gifts all to see Lilahs smile and she slowly starts to let her defences down when it comes to him.
And then their journey really starts to begin.
Such a well written book that just makes you want everything to work out for these characters so much.
Emotions.. fun... hashtags..and hotness what else could you want?? I want to be #JessesGirl
From he very first page to the end this book had me laughing and routing for Jesse, when he wants something he gets it and that’s the case with him wanting Lila.
I’m a big fan of WWE so this book was absolutely brilliant I love sports romance and this one was extremely well written the characters the chemistry all flowed beautifully together. If you love romantic alpha men who won’t take no for an answer then this is the book you need to read. I can guarantee you will fall in live with Jesse.
On her first day working at World Class Wrestling (WCW), Lilah Turner is charmed by Jesse Gunn, an upcoming professional wrestler. Unfortunately for them both, Lilah is Russ Turner’s daughter and Russ is the CEO of WCW with a low tolerance for workplace fraternisations. So for three years and almost 300 attempts at a date, Lilah manages to ward off Jesse’s determined, cheesy and adorable propositions to date him. But when a wrestling matter requires Jesse and Lila to work in close quarters, sparks begin to fly, the sexual tension is palpable and Lilah’s carefully constructed reasons for not dating Jesse start to erode.
What follows is a hilarious romantic comedy that will have you swooning over Jesse - yes you’ll want to be one of #JessesGirlz too, laughing out loud at the antics of wrestlers in pursuit of their sport and our entertainment, and hoping that Lilah can find a balance between her career aspirations and love (because if she can’t, I’m sure there’s a line of women happy to make Jesse theirs). And be prepared for a sweet, lovely, hilarious romance that will make you smile, laugh and wish for a super-sweet, alpha-male wrestler named Jesse Gunn to take an interest in you 😉❤️
Jacob Chance writes fantastic romantic suspense (see the Quake duet!) bit his forays into sports, rom-com with Drive and Tussle have cemented him as a one-click, must-read author for me.

Lilah is joining the family business of World Class Wrestling. She was given 3 rules, one which is mentioned twice of mixing business with pleasure. So, what happens when one of the biggest stars Jesse Gunn takes an intrest in her? Well, you'll just have to read to find out.
Jesse has definitely stolen a place in the book boyfriend category, I'm officially one of #JessesGirlz and wouldn't have it any other way.
Overall Thoughts: From the first page to the last page I've either been giggling or smirking. I'm usually disappointed with RomComs because I don't find them to be as humorous as they can be, however this one delivered on the humor.The way that Mr Chance writes has always captivated me. Tussle is no different. The attention to details for the wrestling events made me feel like I was sitting ring side, and I've only ever been to one WWE event as a child and it brought that memory back. The humor he uses is fitting to the story, it isn't just random funny things but geared to fitting with the scenes. And the chemistry between Jesse and Lilah are just like I expected, Jacob Chance is amazing at writing sexual tension between characters which is a reason I love his work. Ok, so I may love everything this man writes but he proves with each book why I am a loyal fan.
