This was an amazing second chance romance by Willow James. Katie is determined to get out of her small town as soon as she can but thankfully she runs into Mike before she leaves. Mike is one of the main reasons she is so eager to leave. Years ago she was humiliated at the prom and she blames Mike. Seeing Katie again, he is determined to prove to her he is not the same guy he used to be. When the time comes, will Katie still leave town or will she stay and give them a chance?

Lately, it’s been sort of a hit or miss with the books I read. This one was definitely a hit! I loved both Katie and Brodie, how their story developed, and how their love for each other grew. It may feel to some like everything happened too fast. But you have to remember that this is a novella, so you’re going to get the gist of everything at a higher speed than the norm. This is a very good author, I love her writing style, and I wish she’d bite the bullet and move away from short stories and j ...more

I wrote this review once and something happened to my computer anyways let me begin again. This is the story of these two young people from Walton, somewhere in New England because they really don't say where but it doesn't matter. It is a small town. Mike Russo was a gorgeous young man who was in training to win the title of New England Golden Gloves, he had about 11 months. His best friend Brodie was who he trained with in Carlson's Boxing Gym. In fact Brodie was his boxing buddy and one of hi ...more

Mike’s friend was introduced to readers in the first book of the series. If you haven’t had a chance to read Knock Out yet than you may want to do that first. The author has picked up some momentum since Brodie’s story. It’s sweet with heat – emphasis on the heat.

Mike is a good example of how people can change their high school behavior. Katie is a good example of someone who has been affected by that bad behavior. She’s let it direct how she’s going to live her life. If you w

In Her Corner - Review

Overall - ⭐⭐⭐1/2
Heat - 🔥🔥🔥

In Her Corner is a sweet and steamy second chance romance novella. The story is about Katie, a young woman just trying to make her way out of her small New England town. She’s not interested in anything that will keep her in Walton, but her old crush keeps showing up and acting interested. Mike was the architect of one of her lowest points in school. Can she forgive him? Should she?

This was a fun little read that went by in a quick bite. I liked

Willow James is a new to me author, and frankly, In Her Corner was a short story that packed a sweet with heat punch that I couldn't get enough of. Poor Katie, what those mean kids in high school were doing to her led to what happened on prom night, which Mike was involved in, making her senior year all but impossible to deal with. It's some years later when they come face to face, and he didn't even recognize her which was salt in a wound that hasn't healed yet. Dudes are so clueless at times. ...more

Mike and Kate have a sweet story thanks to being able to spot a good thing when you see it. They knew each other as kids but traveled in different circles, now thanks to a flat tire Mike is intrigued by Kate and makes the effort to get to know her. Persistence pays off and a romance is the result. I wish it wasn't a novella as there were parts of the story that just never really developed or were told in particular with Mike. It was nice though to read a story that wasn't insta-love and insta-se ...more

In Her Corner is the 2nd book of the Beautiful Boxers Series and I thoroughly enjoyed it! It’s a sweet story about Katie, a hopeful aspiring vet who’s trying to high-tail it out of the town that made her miserable. The MMC is Mike, a boxing former playboy who falls in love with Katie’s sweet disposition and fiery drive. I love that Katie fought for her dream and that Mike fought for her! The steamy moments were 🔥 and we even get a little look at the characters from the first book, Knock Out! I d ...more

Definitely a quick and sweet read. I enjoyed Katie and Mike's story.

Katie, a girl who wants to leave town as fast as she can after what she experienced in high school. Then, there's Mike who is oblivious to what he had done that had affected Katie. Before he never look at her way, but now he just wants to see her to make it up to her.

I loved that Mike's trying to woo her subtlely. And Katie doesn't really passive aggresively reject him which I love. Overall, this is a sweet read.
