    One thought on “Knockout!”

    1. A friend recommended this book to me, knowing I like both mysteries and romances, and I am so glad she did. Anna Leyton is a Metropolitan Police Detective in London on assignment to Interpol. In the tradition of romances, she meets her man by pure chance (well, almost), competing for a London cab on one of those rainy evenings when cabs are scarce. When she shares a cab with Freddie La Salle and breathing in his male fragrance and his aura of something her life has already undergone the change [...]

    2. Calin delivers a knockout punch!I doubted that I’d enjoy a mystery novel about boxing but this one surprised me. Anna Leyton, the daughter of a rich boat builder, diverges from the family business and becomes a police officer liaison with Interpol. It’s a dangerous job dealing with the seedy underbelly of London, and she’s just recovering from a disastrous car chase that almost ended her career. No wonder Anna concealed her profession when she shared a taxi ride with a sexy Frenchman. Fred [...]

    3. I started this novel with high hopes, some of which were engendered by the delectable torso on the front cover! However, I found it pretty unbelievable.The dialogue was stilted and the heroine who is supposed to be English uses words such as "gonna" and "wanna" which are distinctly Americanisms. I had the impression that English is not the writer's first language.There was no real sense of time or space around the characters with scant imagery to set scenes and I think the investigation becomes [...]

    4. Ana is so likeable as a woman and as a cop. The conflict in her mind between woman and cop draws you into the story, which gets infused with a healthy dose of male spice in Freddie La Salle. The chemistry is palpable, and the story flows on a level surface before plunging into the rapids leading to the climax. Ana defies every imposed expectation of her and ultimately must choose to follow her heart wherever it leads, even if that means letting go of the love of her life. Although I expected muc [...]

    5. Wonderful romantic suspense,loved the book,started reading at night which was a mistake cause i was so glued to the book just could'nt sleep wanted to know what happens next,as soon as finished work in morning picked it up and completed the book,what a page turner the plot was held perfectly with shocking twist n turns ,loved Freddie-Anna,the epilogue was cuteOverall enjoyed the book,it kept me interested from start till endLooking forward to read more books by Emma Calin

    6. Great storyline, a bit different from what I'm used to. You could definitely tell the author isn't American. The language was a bit different, and it was a little hard to understand some of the subtleties. It also seemed more of a sophisticated read than most romantic suspense that I normally come across. I'd definitely recommend this to both contemporary and romantic suspense fans.

    7. I enjoy a good mystery with romance. This has it but it didn't really deliver a believable plot. The ending was very abrupt and left me unsatisfied. This copy given in exchange for an honest review.

    8. Just won this on First Reads!

    9. This book is really good fun. I could not tell if Freddie was a good guy or not. He has something hidden in his past that makes our Anna doubt him. Not a good feeling for an honest cop in love. Working undercover Anna is used to thinking on the fly . She certainly has to do that here. A old relationship threatens her career and her life. She should have known not to sleep with someone in the police. But good friends in the right places can help a lot. Freddie is charming, funny and seriously HOT [...]

    10. This is a well written romance set in the midst of a police investigation into international fraud in sport and gambling. The heroine is a modern career woman working for Interpol trying to crack illegal match fixing and money laundering. Her life is turned upside down when a chance encounter in her private life becomes the key to her success in her current assignment as a detective and she has to make choices about her own personal satisfaction against her duty to her job. Its a fast paced book [...]

    11. Wow. This book kept me reading into the wee hours of the night. Not only is it a compelling mystery, it's also a sexy love story. The passion between Anna and Freddie is worth reading just for itself, but the Interpol/police story line was extremely interesting. Great book; just the thing for a summer read. It's well written and I was totally swept up in the world of the book. That's what reading a good book is all about, isn't it? You get to leave your life for a while and be entertained by som [...]

    12. A steamy romance with a well thought out plot and totally likeable characters. Anna falls for Freddie La Salle. When she met him, she had no idea he was a famous boxer, but soon finds out when her department launches an investigation into illegal betting. The prime suspect? Freddie! All bets on! Or is it cuff and protect?! Anna has one heck of a dilemma, plenty of conflict, but will love cloud her judgment or will she stay on task and hold true to her obligations as a cop?

    14. Great Read! Ever believe in love at first sight? Ever meet someone that makes your heart stop and toes tingle before you even know their name? Ever wonder if love can last when based on deceit? Anna and La Salle were destined to meet, but Anna is a cop and cop instincts come first. La Salle is a world champion boxer hiding something that leaves Anna asking more questions than getting answers. Take a wild ride with Anna and La Salle. Highly Recommended.

    15. Is It Love Or NotThis is an entertaining read about duplicitous actions from both of these main characters. But they end up falling in love and finally finding out the truth about each other. It was a little slow in the begInning but it got exciting about two thirds through. Enjoy I did.

    16. I got this in exchange of an honest review and I must say it was a nice book to read had a lot of nice things and the characters were charming and lots of action that keeps you into it a lot but was surprised by the end

    17. Knockout! was a pretty good book. It had some slow parts, but overall I enjoyed it. I like the fact that the book was not predictable, keeping you on the edge of your seat.

    18. Very good story! There's romance, intrigue, sports, passion and deceit. Female cop gets involved with pro boxer and the heat is on! Not my usual cup of tea but I enjoyed this.

    20. When fate brings two people together, no one knows what will happen. That's exactly what happens, when two people want the same taxi on a street in London. She looked at the good looking stranger and only wanted to be known as a woman, not as a Detective Inspector for Interrpol. She didn't recognize him, the world heavyweight champion for boxing. He had taken one look and he was smitten.No matter what their personal feelings were, the cold hard reality of the world was never far away. Can she tr [...]

    21. A romance layered with passion, love and suspense, “Passion Patrol – Knockout” had good characters and detailed policing expertise. Its thirty-seven chapters presented the complications of opposite attraction and the darker side of boxing. The need for a comforting safety in an unruly world was felt.A free kindle edition was the foundation for my review.

    22. Anna goes undercover to investigate the illegal betting and money laundering connected to boxing. When Anna falls in love with a sexy Frenchman Freddie LaSalle, she is unaware that he is a boxing champion as well as a suspect in her investigation. This book will keep you on the edge of your seat with mystery, murder, lies and deceit period I would recommend this book.

    23. This is a smart, sexy and sassy read!! This kept me glued to my kindle it is so good!! I was gifted a copy of this story and Passion Patrol 2 as an ARC from Emma Calin and immediately read the second book and so cannot wait for book 3!!!

    24. This is a great storyline well written. I enjoyed reading every page. This is a book that has drama, intrigue, and romance. The suspense is interesting and kept me reading. I can't wait to read the next book by this author. I recommend this book.

    25. YEAH!!! I didn't use to be a boxing fan - that is until I got married and my husband brought me to the UFC - now I'm hooked - boxing, wrestling, fights are fights, and the bloodier the better :) LOVED this book! Mostly because it was all about the fight that was coming upWe start the book off with Anna - it's raining, and although she's not too excited about going home to her lonely flat, she hails a cab, which isn't easy, since the strike, but by luck, she sees one. And it pulls over. She looks [...]

    26. This was my May read for Love a Happy Ending Magazine and as I’ve previously read Emma’s new novel ‘Shannon’s Law’ and loved the crap out of it, I was eager to start Knockout! When Anna Leyton, Interpol cop meets Freddie La Salle, world champion boxer, it’s love at first sight but they are both hiding huge secrets from one another. With the fight of his life coming up, Freddie is the suspect in a case that Anna is investigating but the problem is, he doesn’t know she’s a police o [...]

    27. Taken on a rollercoaster of a ride this exciting, intensely passionate romance will take your breath away! An acutely electrifying tale that had me sat on the edge of my seat throughout, which totally overwhelmed and shocked me as to how thoroughly exciting and entertaining this story was. With a cast of colorful characters one is swept away into an action-packed adventure, where danger and adrenaline combine in an intoxicating fusion. Highly readable and completely addictive, this fast and furi [...]
