In His Corner - Sports Romance by Vina Arno

In His Corner by Vina Arno

ER and romance—they don’t go together. That’s what the beautiful and brainy Dr. Siena Carr thinks, until a gorgeous Olympic gold-medalist boxer walks into her ER with a cut that needs stitching. He’s Tommy Raines, also known as the Juggernaut.

Within the first few minutes inside the ER, he strips naked. His body looks like a sculpture by Michelangelo, a glorious sight that sends her heart racing and her face burning. “What are you doing?” she asks. “Mr. Raines, please put on your clothes.”

“Sorry about that,” he says. “I thought you’re supposed to check me out.”

Did he just say check him out? “Mr. Raines, this is an ER, not a bar. I don’t check out patients. Do you mean to say check up?”

He smiles. “Yeah, check up.”

This unforgettable encounter is the beginning of a hot but tension-filled romance because as it turns out, they are opposites. Siena, who was named by her parents after an Italian city, was born into money, while he comes from a blue-collar background. She’s an Ivy League graduate. He’s a college dropout. She’s older than him at twenty-six; he’s twenty-two.

Most of all, Siena is dedicated to healing patients, while the Juggernaut excels at knocking out his opponents. He’s America’s most promising boxer, the perfect combination of Muhammad Ali’s charm and Mike Tyson’s brutal power. When he falls for Siena, he is weeks away from a million-dollar boxing match, his first as a pro. Will he win the fight? How will their unlikely romance survive their differences?
