The Perfect Match, by award-winning author Pat White, is a light-hearted novella that kicks off the Ringside Romance series.

A ballerina in a wrestling ring?

After an injury ruins her ballet career, financially desperate Julianna Wright takes a job in a pro-wrestling show as the Dynamic Dancing Delila, aka Triple D. She’s been managed for years, and will do anything to find her independence and support herself, darn it, even if it means dancing for rabid wrestling fans and being named after a bra size.

Hunky pro-wrestler Marco the Magnificent is stunned when he sees his childhood crush performing center ring. It’s no place for a lady, well, not a fragile and lovely lady like Julianna at any rate. Marco wants nothing more than to protect her from the brutalities of the business, but, as they say, the road to hell is paved with good intentions, and his attempts to talk her out of her career choice simply fuel her fire to succeed.

Julianna’s need for a job, and Marco’s desire to protect her, force them into a partnership both inside and outside of the ring, a partnership that sparks feelings neither of them expects. Pinned under the weight of their explosive chemistry, they’re forced to realize that they truly are… The Perfect Match.

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Chelle:
*Copy gifted in exchange for an honest review

The Perfect Match was a super fun romantic comedy novella with a beautifully engaging voice and quick pace.

Julianna dreamt of nothing more than being a prima ballerina. Unfortunately, a hip injury squashed her plans for the future. Once a dancer, however, you never really get it out of your soul, and working odd jobs to try and pay the bills just wasn't doing it for her. As odd as it seemed getting a job dancing in the pro-wrestling circuit, she was willing to do just about anything to make it on her own.

Marco the Magnificent was known by pro-wrestling fans far and wide as a playboy. It was kind of his schtick. He was one of the 2 top wrestlers for WHAK, but despite his professional identity, he was still a nice guy. When he heard that his high school crush was in need of a job, he used his connections - both familial and professional - to help Julianna out. Little did he know she'd actually end up IN the ring or that he'd be utterly and completely smitten.

When the two are teamed up in the ring they both need to learn to trust and accept, compromise and adapt. It's a fun journey to see them grow together.

Even if you're not a pro-wresting fan I think you'll enjoy this fun read and I highly recommend it for contemporary romance and light-hearted romance fans!
