Punch-Drunk Love
Punch-Drunk Love - Nico Jaye

Dear Author,
Umm, our entire kickboxing team just walked in on us. I think we’re OUT now.

 

This one surprised me a little bit. I mostly read it for my Around-the-country-challenge, but the blurb wasn't bad. After finishing it I can truly say - this wasn't what I expected. In a very good way. It was funny, sweet and actually pretty wholesome for such a short story. And hot. Really hot. I enjoyed the hell out of this one!

Punch-Drunk Love - Nico Jaye

From the prompt, I was expecting this to be an established couple from the get go, but in fact, they actually don't get together until the end, when the scene from the prompt happens. Until then, it's a nice enough story about a guy going on his first competitive kickboxing tournament and letting loose in Las Vegas. I couldn't really get a handle on Derek. Why was he learning Spanish? I kept waiting for that come back up but it didn't.

It also felt a little creepy to me that Derek knew who Oliver was in the club, but Oliver didn't recognize Derek. Was Derek taking Oliver for a test drive or something? And then because it was good, he decided to pursue Oliver more openly? Just what was going on there? It made me not like Derek very much.

(spoiler show)

I also thought there were just too many side characters to keep track of, since you had Oliver's group of college friends and then the SFE teammates, and you don't really get to know any of them very well.

Punch-Drunk Love - Nico Jaye Happy sigh... A new adult story that didn't give headachy angst. Fact, this was really fun and entertaining. I loved it!! From start to finish. The plot, the characters, the writing style: it's an OMG cute! :D Not only this catered the prompt and picture well, it gave a whole interesting story. I can't believe I've never read any Nico Jaye's story before; I definitely would look for her other titles!
