Outmatched by Kristen Callihan and Samantha Young
„Falling for someone isn’t about logic. It’s chemistry.”
As soon as I saw which authors collaborated, I knew that the effect would be epic. I love the books of both Kristen Callihan and Samantha Young, so the level of my excitement was very high and the authors met all of my expectations. Outmatched is a wonderful story, full of smile, cuteness and delight, but also a little bit emotional. I swooned so hard over Parker and Rhys. This book is a beautiful enemies to lovers/fake relantionship story and the proof that opposites attract.
I assure you, you’ll fall in love with Rhys and Parker. These two met in quite unexpected circumstances and this meeting resulted in an arrangement where they formed a fake relationship that was supposed to help them both. And what started out as a simple deal and endless banter, quickly evolved into the most beautiful and heart-warming romance ever. Even though the characters couldn’t be more different, they gave each other exactly what they needed and that’s what made them so special and wonderful. She calmed him and he helped her gain confidence and made her become more open.
Rhys *insert heart-eyes* This dirty-talking ex- boxer is so sexy, caring and loyal. His protectiveness has no limits, he’s supportive and understanding and if there was a perfect book-boyfriend contest, Rhys Morgan would get first place.
Parker is a nerd. She’s very intelligent, quirky and sweet, but also feisty and adorable. Some would say that she’s a little bit uptight and insecure, but Rhys challenged her and brought out the best in her.
I loved their interactions, their protectiveness and support toward each other, their banter and their sizzling chemistry. Watching their relationship unfold was so wonderful that I felt my stomach flutter.
Outmatched is funny, adorable and steamy read. It also has an emotional depth, that shows how important is to let go of the past and fight for your dreams. Callihan/Young created a charming and captivating story that will made you smile and believe in happily ever after. I very much hope that the authors will resume their collaboration and they’ll give us more of their beautiful words!
Outmatched, an all-new standalone contemporary romance by New York Times bestselling authors Kristen Callihan and Samantha Young.
What happens when a boxer finds chemistry with a geek?
Parker Brown can’t believe she needs to hire a fake boyfriend. When she landed her dream job in renewable energy, she thought she’d be entering a world at the forefront of progressive thinking. But the head boss prefers to promote employees who are “settled.” Thankfully, she’s found the perfect candidate, a fellow intellectual looking for some quick cash. What Parker gets is his protective big brother—Rhys Morgan. The tall, muscled ex-boxer with a foul mouth shows up just as her boss does, and now she’s stuck with the manipulative jerk.
Responsibility weighs heavily on Rhys. Now permanently out of the ring, he’s trying to hold together his late father’s gym and keep his younger brother, Dean, on the straight and narrow. To save Dean from himself, Rhys takes his place, ready to give this society girl a piece of his mind. Instead, he finds an opportunity. Even though they can hardly stand each other, posing as Parker’s boyfriend is a win-win deal. She gets to keep her job, and he’ll charm her star-struck boss into sponsoring his gym.
Problem is, they can barely keep their hands off each other. And what started as an easy deal isn’t so easy anymore. Because what future can a rough ex-boxer, afraid to open his heart, and a polished society geek, who has sworn off real relationships, possibly have?
They say opposites attract. These opposites are about to combust on impact.

AngryTink: Hey. This is Parker. Parker Brown.
My phone dinged loudly. I fumbled around my bed, finally finding the damn thing under a pillow. Wiping the sleep off my face, I rolled onto my back and read the text that had pulled me out of a pleasant sleep. I smiled. It was just so … Parker. Settling in, I answered her.
RhysThis: Don’t have to tell me who you are. Your number is programmed on my phone. What do you want?
AngryTink: Well, good morning to you too, Happy Pants.
My smile turned into an evil grin. The girl was always going to punch back and make it count.
RhysThis: That’s Mr. Happy Pants. Though, TBH, my pants aren’t too happy at the moment. Want to help me out with that?
AngryTink: Tempting. Truly. But, no.
RhysThis: RU sure? ‘Cuz Happy Pants Rhys is much more agreeable than Sad That He Had to Self-Satisfy Rhys.
AngryTink: Would you please behave?
RhysThis: I’m not the one who mentioned the emotional state of my pants.
A chuckle rumbled in my chest as my thumbs tapped out a response I knew would piss her off more.
RhysThis: Was that even English? Honestly, Ms. Brown, I thought you were educated.
She took a moment to answer. I could picture her, phone in hand, grinding her teeth.
AngryTink: You’re deliberately trying to annoy me, aren’t you?
RhysThis: You’re quick. I’ll give you that.
AngryTink: Mr. Morgan, I’m about ten seconds away from finding an alternate fake boyfriend. A goat on a rope would be a better candidate at this point.
It was cute she thought that was threatening.
RhysThis: Yeah, probably. But the goat doesn’t have a signed contract. I do, Tinker Bell.
RhysThis: You’re kind of cute when you talk pirate.
