Reviewed: Making Him Sweat by Meg Maguire...5 out of 5 rating...

Making Him Sweat (Harlequin Blaze #740)
She's hitting below the belt…

Round 1
In this corner is admittedly romantic Jenna Wilinski, who’s inherited a rather seedy boxing gym from her estranged father. With it, she can realize her dream of launching an upscale matchmaking business…provided she can take on the very intimidating—and wickedly hot—boxer who stands in her way!

Round 2
In the far corner is former pro boxer Mercer Rowley. He’s the only one who can protect his “home”—even if it is a little run-down— from his determined and feisty little opponent. But man, once the gloves come off, his hands just want to touch her everywhere…

Round 3
This matchup is too close to call. But no matter which contender comes out on top, the other is sure to enjoy every minute of it....
"You're the Mr. Right that I've been picturing all wrong my whole life." *sigh*

This is another cover that I just love and makes me want to sigh!! lol ;)  Meg Maguire is another new-to-me author that I will definitely be looking for more from. She won me over with Making Him Sweat and I am a BIG fan now.  I'm not so patiently waiting for the next book in this series!!  Rick *sigh* His book is going to be so good and I am hoping to read more about Mercer and Jenna!! Can't wait!! 

Mercer Rowley...what a great name!! He is definitely sigh worthy!! I just loved him. His personality won me over from the start~he was so calm and reassuring. Such a soothing male hero that was perfect for Jenna. He was exactly what she needed and I loved the affect he had on her. He protected and supported her so much through out the story and was willing to sacrifice so much for her without even thinking twice about it or how much his life would have to change. He was a great character. I just couldn't help but fall in love with him. He definitely made my heart ache with how much he was willing to sacrifice what he wanted~especially how much he wanted Jenna~to make her happy. He was so sweet without being a pushover or weenie of a hero!! lol  I also really liked Jenna. I loved how she eventually came to love the gym and fought for what she wanted. I especially loved that she fought for Mercer and the gym to stay open as she knew how important it was to him. I also loved that she was opening a dating service. Rick wanting to be her client cracked me up. Rick was such a lovable funny character. Jenna's relationship or non~relationship with her father was sad~especially when she found the letters. But I loved how reading those letters better helped her to change her mind and priorities. And of course, I was so rooting for HEA for Mercer and Jenna.

I loved the ending and I'm hoping to read more about Jenna and Mercer through out the  continuing series. Mercer was so cute in how he showed Jenna the pamphlet and told her what his plans were for them in the future. They were so much fun to read. They were both such a cute, sweet, funny couple who also had some SPICY HOT sex!! One of my favorite parts is when he drives back in the middle of the night to comfort her because she was upset about the letters!! 

A short, sweet, fun read that left me smiling at the end and definitely wanting more. Great way to spend a few hours reading.        5 out of 5 rating.
