Release Blitz:The Boxer by Piper Rayne

March 1, 2017

Cover Design: Djordje Grbic
Release Date: March 1, 2017
“Who knew a bad boy could mend a broken heart?" What does a girl do after she discovers her fiancé is a cheating bastard? In my case, I performed the ritual implosion of all scorned women. I drowned my sorrows in cases of white wine, wallowed in gallons of ice cream, and ignited a bonfire to burn away every damn remnant of his existence. Six months later, the only result was a permanent impression of my ass on the couch.

Adventure Dating my friends dared. A new and exciting opportunity they said. I thought they were crazy, but I’m not one to back down from a challenge, so I signed up for the entire four-week deal. That’s where I saw HIM. Lucas Cummings. He isn’t the classic rich boy I usually end up with. The one whose idea of working up a sweat is waiting for his margarita to be served beachside. Nope. He’s a rough and tough bad boy that all fathers warn their daughters about. You know the type. Cocky swagger, chiseled jaw—the ‘V’. SOLD, I said to myself, until I discovered he was so much more than just a BOXER. Left Hook. Right to the heart. This is a standalone book in The Modern Love World. You do not need to read book one, The Bartender, in order to read The Boxer.  

Six months ago Talia’s whole world was turned upside down when she found out her fiancé was a lying, cheating piece of fecal matter. She has spent most of her time since drowning in Ben and Jerry’s and dvds. Her bffs, Whitney and Lennon, decide that enough is enough, and force her get off the couch and go out with them. Unfortunately for Talia, the night doesn’t end well, and she winds up embarrassing herself in front of a gorgeous boxer named Lucas. She was hoping for a hot one night stand, but instead winds up barely walking away with her dignity.

Giving her one more push to get back out into the dating world, Whit and Lennon sign Talia up for adventure dating and practically dare her to go. Not one to back down from a challenge, she decides to follow through with it. That turns out to be a great idea, because Lucas just so happens to be there. Regardless of how bad things went last time she saw him, he is still very interested in Talia. Will the boxer be just what she needs to knock her out of her downward spiral of grief?

The Boxer is a great addition to the Modern Love series by Piper Rayne. At this point, I am pretty much one-clicking everything they write in the future. This is supposed to be a standalone, but if you want my opinion, I think you should read the previous book in the series first. You will get more of Talia’s back story, Whitney’s story, and more of the friendship between the three girls.

My favorite things about this story both begin with the letter L. The first is obviously Lucas. He is a boxer, for God’s sake, with a unicorn cock, a dirty mouth, and a soft heart. I adored him from the moment Talia met him, and I can’t see him ever giving me a reason for that to change. I may even love him more than Cole. Cole is Whitney’s boyfriend for those of you that haven’t read the awesomeness that is The Bachelor. The jury is still out, but he is definitely book boyfriend material. The second is Lennon. Yes, this is Talia’s book, but if you ask me, she was upstaged by my favorite member of the trio. Lennon is an AMAZING friend that never judges, amuses the hell out of me, and is always there for her friends whenever they need her. Between that, her unicorn van, outgoing personality, and sex toy empire aspirations, how can you not love her?? Being herself and not giving a single fuck what anyone else thinks also earns her major points from me.

Now, go read this book! Read The Bartender, too, if you haven’t! Then, pre-order The Banker, because I know by now that these ladies know what they are doing and you won’t be disappointed! Did I mention The Banker is Lennon’s book? I need it in my hands like yesterday! 

Overall, The Boxer is light, fluffy, steamy, and sweet. The story is entertaining with a twist at the end that I can’t believe I didn’t see coming, the writing is fantastic, the characters are three dimensional, and the romance is hot and heartwarming. Romance fans, this one's for you!!

*Something I didn't like about this book was the cover. Look at his arms! Does he look like a boxer to you??!!*
