Overview

Below the Belt by Sarah Mayberry

To outfit his new gym, trainer Cooper Fitzgerald is looking for fresh boxing talent. Male boxing talent, that is. So what on earth is he thinking by taking on Jamie Sawyer? She's stubborn, difficult, aggressive—and far too hot for the kind of close contact training requires. But her skill in the ring is turning his professional head.

Too bad his isn't the only head that's turning. Jamie and her skimpy little shorts have all the guys forgetting the power she packs in a punch. And when Jamie offers Cooper her irresistible body—no strings attached—he's down for the count. But can Cooper keep the line between trainer and sex buddy…or is he setting himself up for another knockout?

About the Author

Sarah Mayberry was born in Melbourne, Australia, and is the middle of three children. From the time that she first "stole" paper from kindergarten and stapled it together to make "books," Sarah has always wanted to be a writer. In line with this ambition, on graduation from high school she completed a bachelor of arts degree majoring in professional writing, then sat down to write a book. When inspiration didn't strike, she began to wonder if, perhaps, she needed to live some life first before writing about it.

This still left the burning question of how to pay the rent. She found her way into trade journalism, working off the principle that it was better to write anything for a living than nothing at all. Her time there lead to the opportunity to launch a new decorator magazine for one of Australia's major retailers, an invaluable and grueling experience that she found very rewarding.

But the opportunity to write fiction for a living soon lured Sarah away. She took up a post as storyliner on Australia's longest running soap, Neighbours. Over two years she helped plot more than 240 hours of television, as well as writing freelance scripts. She remembers her time with the show very fondly — especially the dirty jokes and laughter around the story table — and still writes scripts on a freelance basis.

In 2003 she relocated to New Zealand for her partner's work. There Sarah served as storyliner and story editor on the country's top-rating drama, Shortland Street, before quitting to pursue writing full time.

Sarah picked up a love of romance novels from both her grandmothers, and has submitted manuscripts to Harlequinmanytimes over the years. She credits the invaluable story structuring experience she learned on Neighbours as the key to her eventual success — along with the patience of her fantastic editor, Wanda.

Sarah is revoltingly happy with her partner of twelve years, Chris, who is a talented scriptwriter. Not only does he offer fantastic advice and solutions to writing problems, but he's also handsome, funny and sexy. When she's not gushing over him, she loves to read romance and fantasy novels, go to the movies, sew and cook for her friends. She has also become a recent convert to Pilates, which she knows she should do more often.

Jaime Sawyer wants to reclaim her family's good reputation in the boxing world after her father threw a fight five years before. She's looking for a trainer, and wants former heavyweight champ Cooper Fitzgerald to be the one. Cooper, however, has no interest in taking on a female boxer--he doesn't think women have the drive or stamina to really compete. After he watches Jaime's debut fight, however, he sees in her the potential for an incredible fighter and agrees to take her on. This is a fast-paced, sexy book, and I loved the insider's look at the world of professional boxing. The chemistry between Jaime and Cooper is strong, and the sex scenes are hot. Fans of the movie "Million Dollar Baby" will enjoy this book about a strong woman driven to fulfill her family legacy, and the obstacles she has to overcome.

## I liked the story, but i would've liked a little more romance. I love a strong heroine; there's nothing worse than a needy/clingy heroine, but she went a little overboard in the other direction. I wanted to smack her a few times. But all in all a worthy read.
