The Boxer by Piper Rayne – Release, Review, & Giveaway

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.

My Review – 4.5 Stars

I loved the second book in the Modern Love series! Piper Rayne is a wonderful pair of writers. I REALLY wish I knew who they were, so I could buy their other books! The Boxer was a fabulous story of redemption for Tahlia after what Chase did to her. (Don’t worry; you don’t need to read book 1 first.) But poor Tahlia! Was it not humiliating enough to have her fiancé cheat on her? Why must you torture this sweet, perfect woman? I was cracking up and mortified for her all at the same time.

I loved her and Lucas together! They were everything I’d hoped they would be. Their attraction was undeniable from the moment they met and then slowly built into a passionate love affair that had me swooning. Lucas was the quintessential “bad boy”. At least that’s what Tahlia thought until she spent some time with him. I enjoyed watching her realize that he was sweet and caring and not just sex on a stick. Though he certain held to that stereotype in the bedroom, or whatever room he happened to be in. The chemistry and sex had my heart pounding and face flushing. Again…swoon!

The reason for the 1/2 star deduction was the drama at the end. While it is completely plausible, I just felt like it was a little contrived. I get the whole hating liars thing. Been there; done that. But I felt like she made way more out of the situation than was warranted. She so needed the good kick in the pants she got from Lennon.

About the Author

Piper Rayne, or Piper and Rayne, whichever you prefer because we’re not one author, we’re two. Yep, you get two established authors for the price of one. You might be wondering if you know us? Maybe you’ll read our books and figure it out. Maybe you won’t. Does it really matter?

We aren’t trying to stamp ourselves with a top-secret label. We wanted to write without apology. We wanted to not be pigeon holed into a specific outline. We wanted to give readers a story without them assuming how the story will flow. Everyone has their favorite authors, right? And when you pick up their books, you expect something from them. Whether it’s an alpha male, heavy angst, a happily ever after, there’s something you are absolutely certain the book will contain. Heck, we’re readers, too, we get it.

What can we tell you about ourselves? We both have kindle’s full of one-clickable books. We’re both married to husbands who drive us to drink. We’re both chauffeurs to our kids. Most of all, we love hot heroes and quirky heroines that make us laugh, and we hope you do, too.
