Note: I received an electronic copy of this novel from the author in exchange for an honest review.
As the owner of the world’s largest professional wrestling establishment, Lucille Boots doesn’t have time for dating. She’s too busy keeping her wrestlers happy, getting choke-slammed on national television, and spending time with her college-aged daughter to worry about something as tedious as romance.
When her ex-husband sets out to recapture the empire he helped build, Lucille’s life goes from hectic to haywire. The only bright spot she can see is with the ultimate off-limits option: a professional wrestler. Will she break her own rules for love, or will it be business as usual?

Boots on the Ground is a sassy contemporary romance about a divorced woman who is on top of the T.V. wrestling empire.
Lucille runs the most successful (and only) professional wresting T.V. show. When her ex-husband starts another wrestling show and steals Lucille’s new star, she’s angry. She’s scared she’s going to lose her empire with the competition he’s bringing. To make matter worse, Lucille’s attracted to the star that got away. Dimitri is way too young for her, but she can’t seem to fight off his advances.
With her most loyal employees, Lucille sets out to save her company from impending doom and finds the man of her dreams while doing it.
Boots on the Ground is filled with witty dialog and a very funny male lead. I enjoyed the irritation Lucille felt at first toward Dimitri. Watching her fall for him was a lot of fun. I also really liked watching her get the best of her ex-husband. With it’s over the top sass, Boots on the Ground makes for a quick, fun read about an older woman falling in love again.
