My mom always said it was just something about the way he moved.
The same swagger Archie Valentine wore in the ring when he took his opponents down followed him like a halo everywhere he went. But make no mistake about it—he was no angel. He was like a drug. My mother was his addict.
I never understood it…how love could make you blind and convince you to drink the poison. Not until I met Memphis Delaney.
At first, it was the familiar form. He’s a fighter, built like a god from the past, the kind of man the universe doesn’t make anymore. His eyes hide a story, and every time I’m in his presence I want to keep reading him until I get to the end. And then…there’s the way he moves. His boxing is violent but beautiful, and his body is a seductive weapon. When he’s in the ring, he wears the stare of a man committed to the battle until his very last breath.
He could end me; turn me into her. Too much of him will leave me as a shadow, and I’ve lost so much of myself already.
But I have discipline. It came the hard way. Lessons learned, scars left behind, and trust stripped away from life.
I will breathe his air, but I won’t fall for a man like him. The only boxer who’s ever going to break my heart is the one who gave me my name.
I have been in love with Ginger Scott’s books since I read her first first back in the year 2015. Ever since then, I have read all her books and have read them again and again and again. I love a good sports romance so it isn’t a surprise that I love the fact her books. There is always have an element of sports blended into her stories.
Memphis was quintessential Ginger Scott. Perfect blend of sports and romance.
Even so, Memphis was a surprise, I’ll be honest here and say that when I think Ginger Scott books, I think “baseball, basketball, football romance” NOT boxing…But she did it! Memphis is unmistakably palpable!
The characters in this book are written so well… You either love ’em or hate ’em.
Olivia is brilliant, resilient and strong.
Memphis is hardworking, diligent and loyal.
Their chemistry is insanely angsty…almost a slow burn kind of romance but when they do finally get together.. geez!!! HOT!!! I mean we are talking about a boxer here, Ladies hahahaha
Memphis is a beautiful love story about love, family drama, tragedy and dreams.
