“Why haven’t we had sex?”

When Jesse Gunn, one of the biggest stars of World Class Wrestling, voiced that million dollar question, yet again, I was stunned. After turning him down countless times, I thought eventually he’d give up.

Unexpectedly thrown together for a work project, my mind went to places I’d never allowed. Dirty places where sweaty, naked bodies take center ring and names are rasped out in the heat of the moment.

Now, my time is spent wondering if a certain part of him could possibly live up to his last name, distracting me from my full time job – as his boss.

Can I continue to keep things professional or will I give in and tussle?

Tussle is a romcom sports romance. It tells the story of Lilah Turner who begins working at World Class Wrestling for her dad Russ. On her first day, she meets a guy called Jesse Gunn. Jesse takes an instant liking to Lilah and asks her on a date. Lilah agrees until her dad slaps on a no fraternisation policy and later discovers Jesse is a wrestler, so she turns him down.

Jump three years later and Jesse still tries his hardest to get Lilah to date him. She spurns him every turn but he’s pretty persistent. There is a definite attraction between the two and plenty of banter to boot. Lilah finds it increasingly difficult around Jesse as she secretly is attracted to him but she doesn’t want to destroy all that she’s worked for in her career. Then her dad instructs her to go on a road trip with Jesse to raise his profile. Lilah somewhat dreads having to be near Jesse and he is quite cheeky when he lets it known he is looking forward to spending more time with her. What follows is hilarity, sexual tension and possibly Jesse chipping away to melt Lilah’s heart. 

The side characters are a bonus. Ronnie who’s Jesse’s sister and a successful female wrestler, and Wyatt is Jesse’s best friend also a fellow wrestler. They play a significant role and I would like to think we may get a further story on those characters. The banter between all the characters had me laughing and I was intrigued by the connection with them all. Flawless writing by the author and great attention to detail. It’s been many years since I’ve watched wrestling, but it was written in a way that transported you right in the room, watching the show. Tussle is told in dual points of view and that’s a bonus to know what both are thinking. It was colourful being in Jesse Gunn’s mind and equally in Lilah’s as she battled with her feelings, and what she was under instruction to do.

I awarded five stars because I could not get the book out of my head and it was such an enjoyable offering. This is not your average sports romance/erotic story. The author tells this tale with building anticipation and growing chemistry. Knowledge is power, but the writing talent shows the author has a way with words. When it does eventually get to the steamy parts, well all I can say is two words, “storeroom cupboard” and leave it at that. You will have to read it to find out. Chance’s repertoire of works range from suspense to sports and I’ve read them all and he gets better and better each time. He has a talent for creating protagonists and side characters that you could read repeatedly in various stories which just goes to show that he has a talent of entertaining and enchanting you through his written word. Kudos for not just another sports book, but giving a sport that not many write about a welcome change. Sports genre in general is quite saturated; however, Mr Chance’s take on it is always refreshing and edge of seat stuff.
