BookWhisperer Rating:

three books

Jasmine Thomas may not be completely normal, but she’s a pretty typical seventeen-year-old girl. She hates the rich mean kids, loves her best friends, and can’t wait to get out of school each day. Her spare time is spent at The Ring — a boxing gym where she practically grew up — learning karate, boxing and street fighting. So, yeah, Jaz can kick some major butt.
Life seems pretty normal until the day Ryan Fletcher enters her gym…mysterious and hot with heaps of bad boy charm. Sure, she checks him out. Who wouldn’t? But what doesn’t show on his gorgeous abs are secrets and lies that dominate his very grown-up world. Now Jaz has to figure out just how far she is willing to go to know more. Could Ryan really be offering the life-fulfilling life path she’s always dreamed of?

our thoughts Prepare yourself for this is by far the most Aussie book I have ever read. There were many moments that I had to stop and regroup to fully understand the meaning. Otherwise, the story actually being told was a very creative and enjoyable adventure. Jasmine Thomas is not your average seventeen year old. Having been a regular member of the gym and talented in all things fighting; she can take down grown men almost effortlessly. Unlike the plethora of books about damaged and scorned characters; this was a real breath of fresh air. With the help of her Mother Jazz has been slowly uncovering her personality, and it seems to be thriving in this world of martial arts and boxing. This is not your lonely girl, but rather a strong and powerful characters. Jasmine has planned a future, but it never involved and dark and mysterious man or the world of secrecy that he would bring with him. This story was very unlike anything that I have read, but it has such an abundance of potential. It is one that really enjoyed the concept and creativity. The possibility of something spectacular was just below the surface.
