Synopsis (Goodreads):
Power. Brute strength. Unforgettable moves. It’s no wonder Harper Gates hasn’t been able to get her fling with Gage “Savage” Ringer out of her head. Months have passed since she laid eyes—or any other body parts—on him. Months without a word of contact… until, sidelined by injury, he comes back to town.

Staying focused on his training seemed like a smart move to Gage, even if he thought about Harper every day. Seeing her again only makes it clear how much is at stake. He’s got one night to earn back her trust. One night to show her that behind his breathtaking skill and ripped body is a man who’ll give her everything she needs.
Thoughts on Hard Knocks: I've been on a fighter kick lately. Not going to lie, the covers might have something to do with that kick. Because, whoa. Thank you, cover gods, for being generous with the muscles and man-flesh.

But enough about sexy covers. This book features a smokin' hot fighter and the lady trying to give him his space. Except, space isn't what he needs from her. Yeah, you know what I mean. Gage wants sexy times. But just any old sexy times with any old person won't cut it. No, sirree. He wants Harper, Harper, and only Harper.

Which works nicely because she wants him just as strongly. Maybe more so because she hasn't been fooling herself about what she feels about him.

I do enjoy the friends to lovers trope and Gage and Harper play that angle well. I also enjoyed Gage's buddies at the rec center. I see so much potential for those men to fall and fall hard when their special someone falls into their path. *slow thumbs up*
