Review of Punching & Kissing by Helena Newbury
I received this book as an ARC for an honest review.
Let me start this out by saying wow this book is amazing it will grab hold of you and not let go. In this book we meet Sylvie and Aedan. When the book starts out Slyvie is at a place called the pit where underground fighters fight practically to the death or someone can't fight anymore, whichever comes first. Slyvie is only there to watch her brother fight because with their situation she knows they need him to win. While at this fight she sees a mysterious man who later helps her out. Who is it none other than Aedan.
When Aedan first sees Slyvie he thinks she is an angel, but then he thinks no angel would be caught dead in this place. When Aedan spots trouble for Slyvie he knows he should just leave but there is just something about her that keeps drawing him back. Even after the looks he receives from her after saving her he can't believe he is good enough for her and believes he should just leave her alone.
There are many twist and turns to this story that make you wonder can two broken people find a happy ending? You will have to read the book to find out what happens not only to Aedan and Slyvie but to Alec (Slyvie's brother) as well. This book will have you hooked from the moment you start this book to the very end. It will draw you in to so many emotions. I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone.
