Happy Reader Question Day!!! I KNOW this one… but for some reason, I can’t quite put my finger on exactly *which* one it is…

First when I read… that she went to a fight with a friend? YAY! Beautiful Disaster! But nope… ’cause then she went on to mention the medical related “job offer”, so of course the first one that came to mind was “Real”. But nope! And I KNOW I’ve read this one, too, because I remember this story, apart from “Real” and so now I gotta know, too.

Let’s help Stephany (and me!) LOL!

Stephany: I wanted to ask and see if you can tell me what book this is. I can’t seem to remember the title.
It’s about this girl who goes to this boxing match with a friend while she is there she meets the owner who finds out she is going to school to be a nurse or a paramedic and offers her a job as first aid there. Not a lot to go on just wondered if you knew what book it was.

Maryse: I believe it is “Real” by Katy Evans. Here is my review – take a look and let me know (I loved it). If it’s not it, we’ll post this question. :)

Stephany: No it’s not that book. I thought It was Real but I reread it and it’s not the book I’m looking for.

Anyone? Let’s start listing ‘em and see if we come up with some good contenders. LOL! See what I did there? “Contenders”. ‘Cause we’re talking about fighters… Tee hee!! :P Yes I’m corny, I know.

Okay most of the crew (or all of them!) are guessing this one —> Against the Ropes (Redemption Book 1) by Sarah Castille (and I think that’s it! I read it too, and LOVED it, so no wonder this question was so familiar to me – my review).

and Beth says: “It sounds like Phenomenal X (Hard Knocks Book One) by Michelle Valentine. I’ve been waiting on Xavier Cold to come out.”

The Hurricane by R.J. Prescott <— Jan guesses this one! (here’s my review)

Stephany? Is this the one?

YEP!! Stephany just messaged me and said:

“Thank you so much!! It’s Against the Ropes! Your awesome!”

:D YAY!!!

could it be “Against the Ropes” by Sarah Chastille ?

From a Review : The book focuses on Makayla Delaney who is trying to discover her career path while fighting off debt collectors trying to collect on her student loan. She takes a few odd jobs and ends up helping out her best friend, Amanda at a local fight club called Redemption. She ends up in a tight encounter with the club’s owner, Max “Torrent” Huntington and the story spins from there.

It sounds like Phenonenal X by Michelle Valentine. I’ve been waiting on Xavier Cold to come out.
