In her novel, Fighting For It, Jennifer Fusco puts a new slant on the traditional romance with a one-two punch. In it, down-trodden prize fighter Jim Brady is called back to the mat by new owner and former girlfriend Daniella Chambers to win the bout that will make Jim champion and keep the failing gym as the home its always been for its regulars. Fusco portrays the boxing industry in all its grit and glory while teasing the reader with cat and mouse bouts between Jim and Daniella as they fall in love all over again while working toward a common goal. At first, I didn’t like Jim, but as the story moves forward uncovering what really happened when he lost and displaying his determination to make things right, he redeemed himself in my eyes and became a true hero. Often, I grow bored reading romances, but Fighting For It kept my interest. The characters are well developed and the plot is plausible. What I found most interesting was learning about the boxing industry.
