Love On The Ropes (Love In Action Book 1) by Aviva Vaughn – Review by Samantha Jayne Grubey

So I have not read the Beckoned series before this and just like it says it is a standalone you don’t feel like you miss anything from not reading the original series which I love because there’s a few times where I’ve read standalone and been completely clueless because of what happened in the previous book/serious.

I love the frenemies to lovers trope it is one of my favourites mainly because I always love the banter between the two characters, Erin and Clint did not disappoint they gave me some banter worthy scenes and I loved it!

I really like Clint he is hilarious especially with his internal monologue for himself, the fact he knows he teases and annoys Erin and recognises that he still wants her, like the kind of get in that bedroom wanting you and I like that he doesn’t hide it all that way. He’s very charming and charismatic, although not all that great about expressing those feelings he has.

Erin I’m on the fence of how I feel about her, I like her character but she’s also kind of annoying at the same time, strangely. Although once Clint starts opening up to her I like her a little bit more she doesn’t seem so judgy. So other than the judgyness of her I really like her character.

Although we stan Fern! I love him! He’s super supportive!

I like how much we go into the climbing scene this book teaching me things I didn’t even know, although that scene kind of gave me chills between CLint and Erin. The sexual tension between these characters, honestly the tension comes pouring off the page. The fact they both want each other but really don’t say it at the beginning makes me really frustrated I just want them to talk to each other and be honest how they feel. Damn the drama that happened in this book the cabin and the woods (I have to admit reminds me of a certain horror movie that did the cabin in the woods, not the actual thing that happened but the name).

I really enjoyed this story and the plot of the story, I will definitely be interested in reading some more of this author’s work, it was a really cute enjoyable read! I liked the characters and the story kept me reading!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Love on the Ropes is a super cute slow burn co-worker frenemy rom-com. This was as enjoyable as Aviva Vaughn’s last series. Clint Davenport and Erin Hung work for the same morning drive-time radio show Wake Up America “Woo-Ah”. Clint and Erin’s relationship was a little rocky in the beginning with her friendship with Fern and Clint with his awkward nervous talk.

But the laughs are what made their story lovable from the bantering to the random names instead of curse words. But it Avia’s attention to details that makes me feel like I’m right there in the book with her characters. I can’t wait for more of Clint and Erin and to see other co-workers (Fern Haddad)from this series find their HEA.

Love on the Ropes : diverse, slow burn, frenemies to lovers, office rom com (Love in Action #1) by Aviva Vaughn

This is the first read by Vaughn and I’ve got to say wowzers. This was a fantastic read and I really can’t wait for more. Vaughn has a certain way of transporting you into the book.

Erin, originally from Hawaii, is now living in Cali. Working at a radio station is the best she has had. She loves her job and she’s also crushing on her boss. The quote I chose for Erin is: “Thank you for the dance.”

Clint, a former TopGun fighter, is now the host for a radio show. He loves what he does and loves the fact that Erin works there as well. He finds himself falling and isn’t sure what to do. The quote I chose for Clint is: “Do I get to keep my arm around you if we try that?”

Highly recommended for romance lovers. Especially ones where frenemies turn lovers.

Love in the Ropes by Aviva Vaughn is the first book in the Love in Action series. This is a fun and lighthearted book that is entertaining and from start to finish.
Having only read the Beckoned series by this author it was great to read something that had an entirely different feel to it and showcased this authors talent in a new way. I thought the book was a great story with some highly entertaining characters. They had such a great chemistry between them even if they didn’t like each other to start off with.
The whole book is well written and I found it really easy to get into. This is another great book by this author and I am looking forward to what comes next.

It’s always fun to try out new authors. To stumble onto gems that make reading enjoyable. Love On The Ropes was definitely one of those. The first book in her Love In Action series, this book starts the series off right. So sit back, strap in, and hang on for a great ride.

Both Clint Davenport and Erin Hung are living their dream jobs. But with success comes sacrifice. And for these two career-driven individuals, this means no distractions. So when at a company retreat, Erin saves Clint from a messy situation they both realize that distractions aren’t avoidable. Combining angst, humor, and great chemistry between the two lead characters, the story hits a believable note that leaves you thoroughly entertained. This book isn’t instantaneous love. It’s a slow build that allows the reader to get to know and fall in love with the characters. If you’re looking for a fun, easy read, Ms. Vaughn provides that and more.

Love on the Ropes by Aviva Vaughn is book 1 in the Love in Action Series. I found it to be a very easy fast paced read. Emily is a knowledgeable and sexy marketing manager for a top of the charts radio station. New-ish to Pasadena, after leaving the security of her parents’ home at a later age than usual; in her twenties, Emily isn’t looking for love. She’s too busy working towards a promotion. Clint Davenport is one of the radio stations jockeys who is happy in his life, with a past full of his own demons. When Clint and Emily are forced to work closer together, they learn things about each other and themselves they didn’t already know and find themselves having to battle an attraction neither of them wants to feel. This was a fun romantic read I give 4 stars and highly recommend! This story has very minimal offensive language and steamy scenes, however there is a bit!

Love On The Ropes is the first book in the Love In Action series by Aviva Vaughn. I’ve read a few books by this author before and have thoroughly enjoyed them so I had high hopes for this one. Thankfully, this is a great book and I thoroughly enjoyed this one too.
28 year old Erin Hung moved to LA from Hawaii 4 years previously and is loving her job doing marketing for a major radio station’s breakfast show. Her life changes when the show gets a new host. Clint Davenport is a former Topgun pilot and is now the host of the show. On an activity week organised by the radio station the two are pushed close together and both realise that there could be something between them.
I totally loved both of these characters. Erin has no fears when it comes to the activities but has many when it comes to her heart and her personal life. Clint comes across as the perfect man with no fears but actually has a lot going on that he keeps to himself.
The story is very easy to read and flows well, it has great characters and the plot is good which keeps the reader engaged and want to keep reading to see what that author has planned for Clint and Erin.
Definitely recommend.

Love on the Ropes: diverse, slow burn, frenemies to lovers, office rom com (Love in Action Book 1) by Aviva Vaughn is a delightful story. Aviva has done a great job with the characters. They will keep you entertained with their shenanigans and frenemies attitude towards one another. The characters feel real and blemished and Aviva could not have done a better job at bringing them to life. Watching them fight every step of the way is fun and enjoyable. Love on the Ropes is a wonderful start to the series, and I can’t wait to see what Aviva gives us next.

4 out of 5 stars
Love on the Ropes is the first book I have read by this author and I was not left disappointed.
I loved how Erin and Clint had sexual tension straight away and with their banter and frenemie style loathing for each other it made it a very humerous and addictive read, I could not put it down I read it in one night.
Clint thinks his life could not get anymore perfect until Erin, (who is still trying to discover who she is as a women) walks into the office and changes everything and all that they thought they knew and wanted comes to a hault. With some serious sexual chemistry and witty banter between the two you will be left wanting more and more.

The started out slow and we are introduced to many characters. I loved the action at the camp between these two. It showed how sexy they could be together if they went that way. Clint seems VERY into her. I liked that. Once the story gets back to civilization it seemed to focus a lot on the jobs they both have and the romance seems to take a back seat.

Overall I enjoyed the story and read it fairly quickly. I really didn’t see any of the frenemies action or the cockiness from Clint that I was expecting. Clint seems very down to earth and kind. No showboating from him at all. I see the next in the series is about Patrick(who we haven’t met…only heard about). We will see where that takes us.
