The Knockout Punch is a slow burn, feel good sports romance that brightened my day. The characters are easy to relate to and the story is smoothly written. Although the story is emotional and there are serious issues, there is also a mixture of lightheartedness and fun. I also enjoyed the secondary characters, they bring entertainment and add to the story.

Isla has spent all her time and money opening her own business as a physiotherapist. Her father is an ex boxer and she is still dealing with issues from watching his fights and worrying about him. Isla loves working on athletics but refuses to work on any boxers and she certainly will never date one. She just can’t handle watching them abuse their bodies. Unfortunately, when Isla meets Eric, he is the type of guy she could fall for, but he is a boxer. Eric is totally unexpected and Isla isn’t sure she can resist him. He is the perfect guy, except for being a boxer. He is cerebral and happiest when he is reading books and studying.

Eric and Isla both have strong family values. They care so much about their families and will do anything for them. They also have some personal issues they are dealing with. Eric and Isla have to make some difficult decisions about what is Important to them and reevaluate their lives and thinking. I enjoyed this fun and lighthearted story.
