    I liked the cast of characters that were set up in this book that will be revisited throughout this new series. This was my first book by this author but I really enjoyed it. 4 stars instead of 5 because the were a few editing and grammar errors that took me out of the story when I c...

    Loving this author Have greatly enjoyed every book I?ve read by this author and Below the Belt is no exception. Excellent cast of characters and I found the insta-connection to be completely believable, which is rare, in part because of how Noah and Adrian communicated with each ...

    I liked this. Good plot, strong characters, apparent chemistry, good dialogue. What I didn?t like was the out of nowhere poly relationship with the secondary characters. When Anna (Adrian?s twin sister) met Noah and had that conversation about her knowing not to judge a person?...

    I was so not expecting this to be so fucking sweet and romantic, especially given the initial setting. But it was really fantastic, a perfect read-in-a-day book. The build was believable, (hi, my now wife moved in two weeks into our relationship so that insta love thing is for real), t...

    Here in Naples there is a said : non pu essere pi nero della mezzanotte. Can't be more dark than the midnight, in fact reading the plot I have think, wow what can ever happen again to poor Noah and Adrian? The life is been pretty hard to them, evidently not enough because evil Char...

    This is the third book I?ve read by E.M. Lindsey and I like their style. The characters are dealing with disabilities and have to overcome prejudice in their work life. Even with this challenge they are willing to take on a relationship. When Noah and Adrian meet there is an inst...

    I really liked this story. I love wounded characters and in this case they literally were wounded. I love drama and evil bad guys. I only had a minor issue with how the problems were resolved. I would have loved another confrontation. It was too quickly and mostly off page. I?m ve...

    Looks are deceiving This was a great story. Main characters were both nicely developed they both had depth. Two people appeared broken based on society's definition of normal. But they were in fact extremely strong, determined, resilient and passionate. There is a scene where Noah i...

    Love The Idea of This Series I absolutely love this book. The characters are sweet and easily likeable. Adrian and Noah are both disabled but they don't let it limit them. They acknowledge where their limitations are and take steps to address it. They are positive about their circum...

    Well, well, well - I rather enjoyed that, insta love(ish) and all. I'm not overly fussed on insta but this one totally worked, I think because there was other stuff going on the kept my interest - both of them had disabilities they had to deal with, there was a canny suspense plot runn...

    It was okay. The timelines were a bit tricky. It seem this whole romance spans a few weeks then they were ready to get hitched by the end of the book. I'm not a fan of insta love when the circumstances are just plain. What I did like were the multicultural aspects of the two MCs. Not y...

    3.5 to 4 stars. This wasn't a bad book. I did like the romance and the boxing connection, and writing style was good minus the need for further editing. The storyline had some minor issues, and a tendency for background characters to drop off the page never to be heard from again. One ...

    4.5 stars I kinda knew what to expect from the book especially from the blurb. But wow! Goes to show how good the writing is when even though you know it?s coming, it still shocks you. I?m not shocked per se, nothing bad. But wow...execution was flawless! I like my heroes fla...

    I like it. The premise is great, the guys are interesting. The story is nice, if a bit dramatic. I skimmed some of it, I was a tinny bit bored. But the author write about disabled people, all different handicap, without being shy about it. Love that. ...

    Below the Belt (Baum's Boxing Book 1) This worked for me. Liked everything that went on here and both MC were great, honorable ppl (hot AF too) who were given a bad hand in life but came from it better than most would've. Sweet, adorably dorky at times, hot AF other times. Perfe...

    I liked this quite a lot and was impressed with depictions of characters with various disabilities and the presentation of capabilities. I?m not sure if this is an #ownvoices offering but everything read as authentic. Noah and Adrian weren?t exactly slow burn but I enjoyed the init...

    This was just a middle of the road read for me. I liked the first half much better than the last half. The characters were interesting and I liked Adrien and Noah together. But then the ?drama? came along. And the ?villain? and his ?plan? felt a bit ridiculous. A little OTT...

    2.5 stars This was disappointing. I gave it 2.5 stars instead of 2 stars for the first half, which was mostly enjoyable. I didn't think Noah and Adrian had the most amazing chemistry, but they were nice together and cute. Also it's funny that the title of this about boxing when ...

    Below the Belt was surprisingly really good! Lately I've been trying to explore more into genre's that I don't read a lot of - like m/m. So when I saw this, I was like heck yeah! Plus it's on KU. In it, you will meet Noah and Adrian. They were both hurt in the past and they are both...

    Interesting This is a new author to me, and I am glad I took the chance. This book reveals the struggles of living with disabilities in a way that pity is not involved--only compassion and understanding. I enjoyed the characters and their journey even though I felt like the connecti...

    Amazing Very few authors have ever managed to write characters as complicated as this. I know of no other authors who can write characters who have physical limitations as well as this author can. Every word, every character, every book... they kind of break my heart while making me...

    Wow, this book was amazing. It ticked all my boxes. There was suspense, a little more steam than I expected which was cool, two MCs physically scarred but still able to build a life beyond their injuries and limitations. I liked both Adrian and Noah. The way they were together at the b...

    Not rating, DNF at 38%.....at this point they still haven?t figured out that Noah is a professor and Adrian a student - they still believe they have equal status at campus, all the while 3 professors are getting sacked for dating students????and we as readers just know wh...

    It was almost too much. This is the 2nd book I have read by this author and I since a pattern. Her stories are a bit drawn out without a resolution in sight. I am not saying I need short stories, I just need them to keep me engage. I do ennjoy all her characters. Also, I hate when ...

    I just absolutely adored Noah, and Adrian, and their whole Story. I felt so sorry for him for this whole Stalker mess, but I really really enjoyed their Story. It is Kind of slow burn, but I personally prefer those romances where things take their time. Am currently reading the third b...

    This book was a stumbled on surprise. And I?m so glad I stumbled. Yes it was kinda insta lovish but it truly worked for this book. I love how both men were very protective of each other. How they understood each other?s disabilities and loved each other because of them. How they kn...
