Agony/Ecstasy Anthology: Overtaken by Sara Thorn


Can we agree that there are not enough boxing stories in romance? Yes, then you’ll love the short by Sara Thorn.  Hot boxer breaks it off with his girlfriend because she’s too good for him. Maybe she is, but she’s happy to engage in the activities he thinks are too dark and she’s going to make sure he knows it.  Oh, Sara Thorn, write a full length about these two!

There were a lot of things she’d never seen of John Watts.

It was dark back here, the only light coming from the low windows at ground level, but glaring spotlights lit the ring where John fought, his bare chest gleaming with sweat, his gloved hands raised to protect his face. When he scored a hit, the sound could be heard even above the crowd.


It had been three months since last they met, three months since she’d last touched the muscled back sweating up there under the light.

He had ended it, but she didn’t truly know why.

Tonight, she was going to find out.

Next up is Into the Red by Cameron Belle
