As team captain and enforcer, Patrick O’Doul puts the bruise in the Brooklyn Bruisers. But after years of hard hits, O’Doul is feeling the burn, both physically and mentally.
He conceals his pain from his coach and trainers, but when his chronic hip injury becomes too obvious to ignore, they send him for sessions with the team’s massage therapist.
After breaking up with her long-term boyfriend, Ari Bettini is in need of peace of mind. For now, she’s decided to focus on her work: rehabilitating the Bruisers’ MVP. O’Doul is easy on the eyes, but his reaction to her touch is ice cold.
Ari is determined to help O’Doul heal, but as the tension between them turns red hot, they both learn that a little TLC does the body good.
I would have rated this book possibly with five stars if I hadn’t already felt like I’ve read this book before by another author recently.
While minor details are different from what I read before it just felt too similar to me to focus on what made this book and its characters different from the other book I read.
I still loved the friendships and the interactions and Hard Hitter was a great read that I’d recommend to anyone it was just too much like another one I’ve read for me to really enjoy it as much as it deserved.
This title will be available January 3rd 2016!
