Book Review | Punching and Kissing by Helena Newbury


Unless he can teach me how to fight, I’m dead. But our feelings for each other could destroy us both. When an illegal underground fight leaves my brother in the hospital, I make a desperate deal to save his life: I volunteer to fight in his place. In thirty days, I’ve got to walk into the ring, a woman in a man’s world...and I’ve never even thrown a punch. I have one chance to survive. I need a badass who can teach me to be as tough as him. I need Aedan O’Harra, the blue-eyed, Irish beast of a man who everyone fears.

As we spar and wrestle, I begin to see the man inside him, the one no one else can. It gets harder and harder for us to control our feelings. Can I help him break free of the dark secrets that haunt him and can we save each other, or will we both be defeated? Because neither of us is ready for how dark and desperate this fight will become.

It’s morbid, it’s bloody, it’s awesome. Punching and Kissing lived up to its name, and I can’t help but to love and savor every single page.

Because this girl? Ahh, she’s a brave girl. That or she’s pretty much crazy to get herself in that kind of situation. She may or may not have a choice, but one thing is for sure – she has to go through with it because she couldn’t bear the consequences. There is only one man who can help her…

Aeden – he was danger personified. He was done with his past, and he told himself he wasn’t coming back into it. Until she came into his life and begged for his help. He was the only one who can help her. There was no way she’d survive the situation and get out alive. He wasn’t sure at first, but how can he possibly resist this girl who had caught his attention the first time he ever laid his eyes on her? It took some time, but he agreed to helping her.

His control was tested whenever they’re together. He was trying his best to stop the attraction and the urge to be with her. But every time they’re together, she consumes him. His past always gets in the way, it was the only thing that was stopping him from wanting her.

And it didn’t take that long before they finally gave in. It was a total explosion – the feelings and attraction that they are trying to caged in is finally out, and there was no way of stopping it. Definitely sexy, steamy and can set your readers on fire!

Nevertheless, there is still that pressing situation that needs to be addressed; Aedan’s past and Sylvie’s present. Can they survive? Will their love be truly enough?

There were so many heart-stopping moments in the book, interesting and jaw-dropping twist. You can’t help but want to know how is everything is going to play out, and if this two would have their happy ending. The powerful story line Helena Newbury had with Punching and Kissing is enough to get you hooked.
