I received this book in exchange for my honest review. I am nothing but honest with my reviews so I am really glad that I enjoyed ‘In His Corner’!
Most romantic books I have read involve the female protagonist being very emotional and feel as though they aren’t good enough. Here it is the other way round which is refreshing.
This was a quick but steady paced booked with two POV’s of the male and female protagonists.
Here we have Tommy, a rough and ready fighter, from the other side of the tracks, he lives a basic life, but appreciates what he has. Siena is a rich, focussed doctor and it is in her nature to make people better. She is a snob that has the best intentions but sees things through rose tinted glasses.
Tommy admits that she has flaws, but has no intention on changing them, because thats what makes her, well her. Siena though tries to ‘educate’ Tommy to be more like her, dress better, act better, listen to her music and eat her types of food. Tommy goes along with it to make her happy, but when he needs her and wants her to be there to watch him fight, she can’t do it which disappoints him.
Siena learns many lessons, however she is quite stubborn so these lessons are hard for her. She becomes a better person because of Tommy. She has had a privileged life growing up, which means that she hasn’t really wanted for anything as it was always given to her. This isn’t her fault entirely, it was the hand she was given, and Tommy knows this. It was hard to like Siena at first but she pulls it back-just takes her a bit of time.
What I enjoyed most of all was the unpredictable but steady pace. I am usually quite good at guessing the direction of storylines, but these two gave me a run of my money. There was an instant attraction but things had to happen the hard way before it could work for good, and they needed each other to do that. I won’t tell you how they got there, or if they even did? You will have to read it yourself to find out!
Thank you again Cindy for the chance to review this! Looking forward to reading your future work!
