My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Knockout by Cari Quinn
Part of the Hunks, Hammers & Happily Ever Afters anthology.
This review is only for Knockout by Cari Quinn and while it is part of her Tapped-Out series, this can be read as a standalone.
This is a hot and sexy ménage story about MMA fighter, Emerson, construction worker, JC, and a gym receptionist, Lily. Both boys are best friends with Lily and Emerson is in denial about his feelings about JC. JC himself is fully aware of and embracing his feelings for both and go so far as to set up a housewarming party and the only guests are Lily and Emerson.
I liked this story. The writing is, as always, spot-on. While I understand that this is a novella, I didn't feel like there was enough of a story there. I like steamy sex scenes as much as the next person, but I felt like there could have been more to the story than just that.
The Tapped-Out series is one of my favorites of Quinn's and I'm looking forward to the next one, however, Knockout did fall a little short for me.
*arc received in exchange for honest review.
