The Clinch
Publication Date: January 12, 2021
Genre: LGTBQ+ Romance/ Women


Eden Bauer grew up in a rough part of New York with an unsafe home life and took refuge in the neighborhood Taekwondo dojang. When the master of the dojang offered to train Eden as a live-in student, he started her on a journey that would eventually lead her to become the UFC featherweight champion of the world.

Eden loves competing and coaching the underprivileged kids of her community, but just as she’s getting comfortable with her champion title, a new martial artist from a legendary family comes roaring onto the scene with a dynasty on her shoulders. Brooklyn Shaw is a loud, cocky, aggressive Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu genius who’s also unfortunately pretty dreamy.

Brooklyn and Eden’s rivalry attracts worldwide attention, but as they spend time together, Eden sees past Brooklyn’s showmanship to who she really is. They ought to be perfect for one another, but can either really fall in love with the person standing in the way of her dreams?

The Clinch is my first read by Nicole Disney and it certainly won’t be the last. If I could give this more than five stars, I absolutely would. This book is everything I wanted, and more.

I’m not usually someone who reads sports-related books, but I do try to read LGBTQ+ representation as often as possible, and their plot line of this sounded absolutely intriguing.

The Clinch deserves the hype I saw on goodreads. It was gripping and had me on the edge of my seat. As someone who isn’t well-versed in MMA, I thought this was so well written. I could visualize the fights; from the punches to the crowds. It was really exciting to read.

The characters are fantastically developed and I was in love the the chemistry between the main characters. A bit steamy, and a progressive relationship that didn’t feel forced or rushed.

I could keep rambling, but I’m going to end this review with: The Clinch may be my favorite read of the year, so far. I highly recommend giving it a shot.

Thank you to R&R Book Tours for the free review copy so that I can honestly review this book on the blog tour. All opinions are my own and unbiased.*
