Working It (Ringside Romance #1) by Christine d’Abo #mm #review @Christine_dAbo @RiptideBooks


Nolan Carmichael is getting a fresh start—new career, new company, new life. The only problem is, he liked his old life just fine . . . until an accident robbed him of his health, his job, his self-confidence, and his ability to go out in public without having anxiety attacks.

Zack Anderson has scared away his last four administrative assistants. So when he hires Nolan on a whim, he’s not too worried, since Nolan will be gone within the week anyway. Two weeks later, Nolan has made himself indispensable, completely reforming Zack’s schedule, life . . . and libido.

But in a company already torn by internal politics, one wrong step could ruin both their careers. And not only are they working to reopen Ringside Gym, Zack’s retreat when he was a troubled teen, but they also can’t help themselves falling for each other. If only the rest of their lives could go as smoothly as things do when they’re alone together.

This was an enjoyable read for me.  It wasn’t something that I was expecting when I started reading this book, but I did end up enjoying it.

While the story line is one that I have read before, multiple times, I still liked the way this book worked out.  Nolan was a really good character that I was able to connect with.  And on the other hand, Zack was one that I wasn’t really able to connect with right away, but as the story progressed I was able to connect with him.

I do have to admit though, the drama that was going on in this book was predictable for me personally.  It was still a good read, but I was hoping for a bit more excitement and suspense.

This book was also a good start for a series, and I will be sure to continue reading into the series in the future.
