Á Showing Him the Ropes ↠´ Download by Á Christa Tomlinson 3.
5 stars It s obvious from the start of Showing Him the Ropes that its author, Christa Tomlinson, must be a big fan of professional wrestling and that she s not one of those deluded people who believe it s real grin For a subject that is often heavy with on screen dramatics, I was interested to get a peek behind the curtain, perhaps read things that fit a fantasy or two along the way, and get a story that translated some of the dramatics into the romance too The first two happened, and though the romance was worth the read, it was largely easy on the drama.

Then the two of them come together and the chemistry is great, the slow burn Wow I loved it A beautiful love story As I think it is fair to say that professional wrestling romance is not going to be my new genre I m never big on sports romance, possibly because I just don t like the whole idea of these in groups with special social rules to which everyone must conform, particularly if they re full of hazing and Men doing Masculine Man Things This may be why I m not a fan of army romance either From a total know nothing perspective it seemed to me the book treated wrestling with a very good balance between love of and enjoyment of the sport, appreciation for the skills, and awareness of the potential for a toxic or abusive atmosphere to arise I am still entirely resistant to the appeal of this sport performance, but I think I understand slightly why other people like it, and the detail certainly came across as convincing and naturally worked in Romance wise, it was very sex heavy Showing Him the Ropes was sexy, sweaty, and freaking hilarious Initially, this book was on my maybe list, but oh am I so happy I decided to read it Chance The Chancellor Gerhardt has been in the pro wrestling game a long time His veteran status has earned him a lot of respect both in and out of the ring, but his tenure with Frontier Pro Wrestling certainly doesn t help him pull any strings when his boss attempts to use his knowledge of the field to his benefit Devin Jacobs is young talent in the wrestling world, and while he may not exactly be new to the game, he s new to FPW and pro wrestling Against his better interests, Chance gets roped into babysitting the undeniably attractive rookie and Showing Him the Ropes so to speak, until he s ready for his television debut I know I can trust you to keep him straight Chapter one and Christa s already throwing down
Free copy of book provided by author for honest review through MMRG s Don t Buy Me Love programThis turned out to be a really good love story The MCs, Chance and Devin, have great chemistry and the author does a fantastic job of drawing out their attraction no insta love here Obviously they re going to get together, but Devin s persistence gradually ropes Chance in and when they get together, yeah it s perfect.
There was way info on professional wrestling than I needed personally, but I certainly learned a whole lot about it from this book The author is very knowledgeable about this sport and weaves it into the story line in a very clever way.
There were a few twists and turns I didn t expect which made it fun, and I really enjoyed the author s writing style It was a pretty fast paced book and a good read.
5 slow down starsThis is quite a refreshing read because it centered on professional wrestling Put two males wrestler together and is going to be some really hot grappling Chance aka Chancellor, 38, had been in the industry for than a decade He was burnt out and feeling rather lonely, due to his unsupportive parent and lack of social life He had a serious and stoic no nonsense persona and was respected by his peers When he was task to look after a rookie, he was feeling less than welcoming because he rather be alone than have a travel buddy.
Devin, 26, is the rookie for the company who was excited for being in the big league He is ambitious and motivated to work hard for his family While Chance is all hard edges, Devin is sunshine and smiley faces Sometimes he is even a little bratty just to annoy Chance Devin is a big fan of Chan
Things I liked The wrestling I had no idea how it all works and I was quite interested to learn about the shows, the fact that there were storylines between wrestlers, and all that goes into it Like I said, I am a newbie to this so I appreciated getting to know without suffering from info dump The author managed to introduce the world of professional wrestling without preaching about it The slow burn Devin and Chance take
