    Hmmm I'm torn with my rating on this one. See, whilst I loved both Trevor and Rhys this book was just so. damn. slow and it really needn't have been. The author surprised me with Trevor's secret, I didn't see that one coming and I was all in! But somewhere in the slow meandering the story lost its impact and I was bored. What I did love was, as already said, Trevor's secret. I loved patience that Rhys had with Trevor, what a hero - swoon! I love that characters from the first two books played a Hmmm I'm torn with my rating on this one.

I love that characters from the first two books played a fairly large part in this one. What I didn't like was that the whole suspense bit took up the entire book to the detriment of Rhys and Trevor's budding relationship. And when all was revealed it was rather meh and had me eye rolling ...... and don't even get me started on how rushed it all was. As much as I thought I would 5 star the shit out of this book early on, it just didn't wow me like I'd hoped. 3.5 stars

    4 stars! Ok, this was good but the ultimate villain was...a little weak in my opinion. Also, while it’s a standalone, the timeline actually runs concurrently with the previous books in the series so it makes more sense if you read the books in sequence. I loved how Trevor and Rhys got thrown together and met and stuff. And I like how the Baum gym family accepted Trevor with open arms. I just...felt something missing in this book. I don’t know if it’s all the building of suspense only to finally la 4 stars! Ok, this was good but the ultimate villain was...a little weak in my opinion.

    Great story. Less action than the first 2 books, I was a bit bored reading it. There is back and forth between the MC, but luckily it's not drown out.

    3.5 First, I have to give praise for the sheer amount of representation E.M Lindsey includes in her books; it's wonderfully refreshing to read romance novels where one or both of the love interests isn't a person with a privileged position in society. Now, onto the review. Trevor's secret caught me by surprise, I was not expecting it whatsoever but with the information given about him previously in the series, it made some things finally make sense.

Trevor's secret caught me by surprise, I was not expecting it whatsoever but with the information given about him previously in the series, it made some things finally make sense. I liked seeing his relationship with Rhys develop, it was slower paced than the other two books in the series, but given subject matter, I can understand why things happened the way that they did. I have to say though, it did get a little convoluted plot-wise and the timeline got a little murky in this one. It overlaps a bit with the rest of the series and whereas that wasn't a problem for me in the first two books, it made this one confusing. Ryan mentions in the second book that a month has passed between certain events and this book makes it seem as though it's only been a day or two and it had me scratching my head a bit but maybe I just missed something indicating the little time jump.

    So good E.M. Lindsey's series 'Baum's Boxing' is a series of mm romantic suspense with main characters who have physical differences that make their lives more difficult, and all the stories show not just their strengths but the complexities of the human condition. Trevor is a trans man and I definitely learnt a lot that I didn't know about how it is to live in the world as a trans person. The authors forward was also lovely as she pointed out a few important details: foremost, that Trevor is not So good E.M.

The authors forward was also lovely as she pointed out a few important details: foremost, that Trevor is not meant to be a character representative of all trans men, just an individual human with individual preferences for how they want to be treated. As a straight cis woman I'm sure there are lots of things I miss through the lens of my particular privilege but reading a series like this hopefully helps me keep my heart and mind open and learning. Lindsey is also an accomplished author, so that makes the series a great read. Can't wait for Ivan to get his HEA.

    #SpoilerWarrior I liked this story. It made me sit and think about my life and what I snap think about other people. I feel like I learned something while reading it and that’s one of my favorite feelings. The book wasn’t well edited though, and the amount of spelling errors became distracting. I also feel like the “villain” ended up being kind of...lame? The story of blackmail definitely took a backseat to the story of Trevor and Rhys and Trevor’s struggle to accept a relationship.

There were really long periods of time where absolutely nothing happened in the way or blackmail. It doesn’t say it here, but in the last book it made it seem like Cole was gone for a w h i l e. All of that time with no development. I’ve definitely loved the Baum’s world and if another book came out, is definitely still read it.

    Fringe Contender (Baum's Boxing Book 3) OK, this was some convoluted story right here. Too complex to follow easily at times. But like the rest of the series, this book is, more than anything else, about people. And they are all amazing, very interesting ppl who I'd love to know and have in my RL, that's for sure. Bring the next one on! I'll keep reading 📖

    Sweet story Incredibly sweet and lovely story. A slower burn than the others in the series, but the suspense part is less violent, so it was a nice contrast. I enjoyed reading everything about Trevor and Rhys’ romance.
