Punching and Kissing by Helena Newbury (Audio Edition)

Narrated by Christian Fox and Lucy Rivers

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ½   I listened to this book all in one go! I saw it advertised on Facebook in one of those suggested posts and thought it sounded interesting. I hadn't heard of this author before but, wow, am I glad I picked it up!!!  Aedan is such a nice guy and I instantly loved him. I Loved how he wanted to do sweet things for Sylvie. How he just fell harder and harder for her and ok yeah.. the narrator's Irish accent helped too!  Sylvie was a good match for Aedan. I liked how she tried to make him smile. She was caring and I truly felt her struggle with having to hurt another person. The only part that was a negative for me (if you can even call it that) was that the final scene before the epilogue, seemed to end a bit too abruptly. I would have liked it to read more about it, and as I don't want to give away any spoilers, I will just leave it at that.

Both Narrators did a wonderful job! As I said, Christian Fox’s voice hooked me in with the short audible sample I listened to, and Lucy Rivers did an equally good job. I would listen to both these narrators again!  I am now off to check out the other books by this author!

The Blurb:

When an illegal underground fight leaves my brother in the hospital, I make a desperate deal to save his life: I volunteer to fight in his place. In thirty days, I've got to walk into the ring, a woman in a man's world-and I've never even thrown a punch. I have one chance to survive. I need a badass who can teach me to be as tough as him. I need Aedan O'Harra, the blue-eyed, Irish beast of a man who everyone fears. But training together means getting close. Every touch of his hands makes it harder to control my feelings. I begin to see the man inside him, the one no one else can. Can I help him break free of the dark secrets that haunt him and can we save each other, or will we both be defeated?Contains mature themes.
