Love T.K.O. (Kimani Romance Series #116) by Pamela Yaye

Stunning Yasmin Ohaji is every man's fantasy, but the popular marriage counselor is too busy to bother with romance. Still, Rashawn Bishop isn't giving up. The pro boxer is wooing her with finesse and fancy footwork, and his powerful build makes her weak in all the right places. He's definitely not her type, but she's deliciously tempted.…

Rashawn can't sleep, can't train and can't concentrate—all because of Yasmin. When he's not coming up with ways to show her they're not so different, he's dreaming of possessing every inch of her luscious curves. And when Yasmin finally surrenders, she becomes his everything. But love means making choices. Now, with his career on the line, will he follow the lure of boxing…or the woman he can't live without?

In the beginning of ¿Love T.K.O.¿ in her letter to the readers, Pamela Yaye asked whether you believe there is such a thing call soul mates or something to that nature. Personally, I do believe in soul mates. Maybe I am a romantic. I do believe that God (if you believe in him) can send someone in your life just for you and it is up to us to sustain and make that relationship grow into something special. Also, I believe you are only made wholeheartedly to be with one person. I do believe you can be blessed with someone else, but not as strong as a soul mate was in your life. I am so enthused that I have gotten the opportunity to read this book. This was an amazing and charming story. It had so much character and thoughtfulness to it that I didn¿t want it to end. The two main characters Rashawn and Yasmin were so good together that you didn¿t pick-up or they didn¿t let show that they were totaled opposites. I felt their love and passion for one another and the sparks was definitely in the pages.

I also enjoyed the secondary characters such as Yasmin¿s sister Imani. She was such a trip. She added a flavor to the story and I liked how she was not only Yasmin¿s sister, but also a great best friend that let Yasmin see another momentary look in the different situations that arose for her. Furthermore, I loved the manly presence Rashawn had in the story. I appreciated how he treated Yasmin as a queen and how he never gave his dream up of becoming a world renowned boxer. In my opinion, the fact that Rashawn had a condition really didn¿t bring anything to the story and I wish it could have been emphasized more. I can understand and accept that he wanted a career and he will do what is necessary to succeed. I also agreed with Yasmin to some extent, but not to the point where she will want to break-up with Rashawn for it.

In addition, Rashawn is a man I would want to have. He was not the typical male character that I have read in a story. He brought substance in the story because Yasmin was so surprised that she would fall for a guy like him. Some reviewers may think she was a snob, but I think she was a delightful character with a giving heart. Out of the three other books that Pamela Yaye has written, Yasmin was the best. I really thought she was going to get on my nerves and make me want to skip pages because I thought she was going to just make Rashawn wait and wait for him to give up the chase. It really felt incredible when she finally let Rashawn in her life. She let someone else in after Eric¿s death in which I thought Eric wasn¿t right for her anyway. I thank Pamela Yaye for not dragging Eric in this book because that would make five stars turn into two star rating. I really hope that I can read a story on Imani or Katherine that would be interesting to see what Pamela Yaye would do with these two characters. Pamela Yaye, keep up the good work!

LOVE T.K.O is a refreshing novel that reminds us of what love is really about. Pamela Yaye does it again bringing two individuals from different world into a blissful relationship.

Dr Yasmin Ohaji is a South African beauty who is a popular marriage therapist who has worked her self into a place that romance does not fit into her life but when she meets Rashawn Bishop after he came to her rescue she finds herself fighting the temptations that he presents. Rashawn Bishop is an up and coming boxer in Miami when he comes across Yasmin he sense that she is a woman that he wants in his life. When a group of young men steps to her improperly, he steps in and saves her from having to become unruly. After taking time to really get to know her he finds himself unable to focus because he wants her.

The couple run into some bumps in the road when assumptions are made instead of talked about but when Yasmin relives a part of her past she begins to react in a manner that sends Rashawn into his corner and he does what any man would do he comes out fighting. The relationship takes a rocky turn but as always Pamela finds a way to conclude the relationship with happiness.

Pamela Yaye had me rooting for Rashawn from the beginning of the book as well as wanting to see Yasmin happy. She brings back the idea of what a relationship should really be about and how a man should treat a woman. LOVE T.K.O is defiantly one of my top reads this year.

Marriage counselor Yasmin Ohaji is so busy counseling others on their love lives that she's neglected her own. Enter Rashawn Bishop, a sexy boxer, with eyes for Yasmin. Despite his efforts, Yamsin just isn't trying to go back down lovers' lane. Will Rashawn be able to chip away at the wall that Yasmin has around her heart? "Love TKO" started slow. It wasn't until around the middle of the book that it got really interesting with the circumstances and obstacles faced. Because of that, it seemed almost as if the story was stretched unnecessarily. Once the story picked up, however, it was good. I really like reading about an independent woman. If you like love stories and don't mind the length, "Love TKO" is a good read. Reviewed by: Marcella

This book is the first that I have read from this author. It was an easy read, although some parts of the book seemed rushed. I loved Rashawn and Yasmin characters.

This book was one of the better romance books I have ever read. Anyone can jump in the sack but to know how you got there is key and Pamela Yaye does it with this one. I almost would let me older teen 17+ read this book because it explains love with out nastiness, although kinky has its place this book is just smooth and all around read that wouldnt offend a nun.
