Book Review: Outmatched


What happens when a boxer finds chemistry with a geek?

Parker Brown can’t believe she needs to hire a fake boyfriend. When she landed her dream job in renewable energy, she thought she’d be entering a world at the forefront of progressive thinking. But the head boss prefers to promote employees who are “settled.” Thankfully, she’s found the perfect candidate, a fellow intellectual looking for some quick cash. What Parker gets is his protective big brother—Rhys Morgan. The tall, muscled ex-boxer with a foul mouth shows up just as her boss does, and now she’s stuck with the manipulative jerk.

Responsibility weighs heavily on Rhys. Now permanently out of the ring, he’s trying to hold together his late father’s gym and keep his younger brother, Dean, on the straight and narrow. To save Dean from himself, Rhys takes his place, ready to give this society girl a piece of his mind. Instead, he finds an opportunity. Even though they can hardly stand each other, posing as Parker’s boyfriend is a win-win deal. She gets to keep her job, and he’ll charm her star-struck boss into sponsoring his gym.

Problem is, they can barely keep their hands off each other. And what started as an easy deal isn’t so easy anymore. Because what future can a rough ex-boxer, afraid to open his heart, and a polished society geek, who has sworn off real relationships, possibly have?

They say opposites attract. These opposites are about to combust on impact.


This was a good novel. I was really excited about it, I thought I was gonna love it because this a ‘Fake Dating’ romance book and I’m a sucker for it but in the end I didn’t love it as much I thought I would.

I liked the novel, I liked the characters but there was something about the novel that didn’t make me connect too much with it.

Parker was really adorable, I liked her so much. There were times were she made me laugh and that was one of the reasons why I liked her. The connection between Rhys and Parker was great and you could see from the first time they met that there was attraction between them.

I don’t know what I was expecting from this book but I expected something more, and even though it wasn’t what I expected, I still enjoyed it and I would still recommend it. 

3/5 Stars
