Favorite Character Friday: A Different Kind of MMA Fighter.

Favorite Character Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Adria's Musings & Reviews that gives readers a chance to celebrate their favorite characters, because with millions of books out there and more coming out every week, characters are like potato chips, you can't have just one.

How it works: Every week you pick one of your favorite characters and tell everyone WHY they're one of your favorite characters. Be sure to include the blurb and book cover as well! Share the love and maybe someone will read that same book and see why that character is one of your favorites! Unlike the Book Boyfriend meme (which was a great meme), your Favorite Character Fridays choice can be male or female!

Favorite Character: Nick Giannakis

Book Title & Author: Dirty Boxing by Harper St. George and Tara Wyatt

Why is this character your favorite (Feel free to include a favorite quote or scene)? So you know how MMA fighters have that stereotype of being brooding, dangerous, and damaged? Well Nick isn’t anything like that. He doesn’t come from a broken family that made him wary of love, and he doesn’t hate his sibling. He’s just this seriously normal guy who happens to make his living fighting. He’s got a lot of love to give and an addictive sense of humor that makes him the total package. As “hunky” as he is, he doesn’t take himself seriously and he’ll get a little goofy just to make a friend smile:

     Gabe returned Nick’s nod, looking awfully grim for a man who’d just won a championship belt.
     Nick had hoped that moving to Vegas and starting fresh would’ve helped Gabe cope with some of the pain he carried around, but it looked as though his friend was still dealing with the same demons that had been haunting him for years now.
     The music changed, the hip-hop song fading out and giving way to Snap!’s “The Power.” As soon as Gabe looked at Nick again, Nick tossed the jump rope aside, breaking into a flawless running man. The side of Gabe’s mouth twitched, and he nodded. Nick kept dancing, and Gabe chuckled as he stepped onto a treadmill.
     A half smile and a chuckle. Not bad.

Did I mention he isn’t afraid of being head over heels in love? Cautious yes, especially since Jules all but smashed his heart to pieces but man when he’s all in, he’s all in. What more can you ask for in a guy???

Book Cover/Blurb:
After an unstable childhood, Jules Darcy is very familiar with the risks of falling in love. And as an adult, she’s never let herself forget just how high those stakes can be. That’s why she ran away a year ago after her fling with MMA fighter Nick Giannakis quickly got serious. But when she jumps at the opportunity to reconnect with her dad by accepting a job with his growing fight league, she’s stunned to learn the abs, the chiseled arms, and the rock-solid punches she has to market belong to none other than her former fling. Unable to run away from the sexy middleweight this time, Jules vows to keep things strictly professional. But one look at Nick, and her resolve starts to crumble….

The last thing Nick expects when he signs with the prestigious World Fighting Championship is that he’ll have to work with the only woman who ever broke his heart. Desperate to hide the pain she caused him, Nick vows to keep his distance from his gorgeous ex. But when he realizes their intense chemistry hasn’t faded after a year apart, he wonders if they could have a future together, even if dating the boss’s daughter could complicate his bid for the championship belt.

Under the bright lights of Las Vegas, in the world of high-stakes prize fighting, they’ll have to take a risk and decide if their love is worth fighting for.
