    6. CJ Martin is a new-to-me author but the blurb for Knockout had me sold. There are a ton of fighter tales out there, and much like the popular MC titles, it's how the author crafts the characters, not the sub-genre settings that makes it work or not. Right away I liked Sean and Kristen and the chemistry between them was like a live wire. They were both frustrating at times, with their back and forth, but it just made them all the more real. Flawed and imperfect. The heat level was scorching but b [...]

    7. I liked the plot of C. J. Martin's book, Knockout. For my personal taste, however, there were too many "bedroom scenes".

    8. From the moment Kristen laid eyes on professional boxer Sean, she knew nothing would be the same again.

But Sean had secrets. Secrets that could shatter her world and break her heart, but is it possible to forgive the past?When Sean first saw her at the gym where he trained her knew he was a goner. She was everywhe [...]

    9. Shanyn's ReviewI’ve been in a bit of a book funk lately. Nothing really capturing my attention, and then “Knockout” showed up on my kindle. Just like a attention seeking, panty melting, book angel! This book solved my book funk issue! I love a good fighter book, and this one did not disappoint. Sean is a hot alpha male boxer, and I couldn’t get enough of him. “Men like him- men too good looking for their own good- are dangerous and to be avoided at all costs. Yes, I think, as I fan my [...]

    13. 4 Star ReviewKnockout by CJ Martin is funny, emotional, and dramatic all rolled into one standalone novel.

    24. This is a one two punch to the heart, if you can forgive the pun, you will understand as soon as you finish this wonderful story.
