I'm not one to read biracial romance novels, mainly because they tend to focus too much on race issues that I cannot relate to. But this one was just the opposite. The author says it best himself within the book, ". . . they're different. So what? All people are different. All relationships are different. Tell me a good story about these two. Entertain and delight me" (252). This book did just that. It is a story of a magazine journalist that uncovers the location of a ex-world champion boxer hidden away in Canada while training for his comeback fight. While trying to get the scoop on this sexy boxer, a battle of wills ensues. In order to get the interview with hims she must complete 5 tasks, including doing his workout with him. Throughout the book each character must figure out what is worth fighting for. A good read. Definitely for more mature audiences as there are some steamy scenes.

Meredith I love that Murray just lets two people of different backgrounds be together without making it political.
