Review ~ A Fighter's Desire by L.P. Dover

A Fighter's Desire (Gloves Off, #1)Paperback purchased by myself

Release Date: July 28th 2014

Two is always better than one.

Knowing a fighter’s desires and needs are one thing, but actually experiencing them is another. A Fighter’s Desire gives you not one, but two stories full of hardcore passion, angst, and action that’ll leave you breathless and aching for more.

Part One: Ryley and Camden Jameson, well-known MMA fighters and identical twins, were just as aggressive and passionate in the bed as they were in the ring. They loved a good fight, and that’s exactly what they got when they met Ashleigh Warren. The brothers had a habit of sharing things—including women—and she happened to be the only one they truly craved. However, the problem was getting her to agree to their proposition. It was one she couldn’t refuse, but she knew it wouldn’t be easy to win. Nonetheless, she sure as hell was going to enjoy it.

Part Two: Fighting temptation isn’t easy when you’re constantly around the one person you’ve desired more than any other. Gabriella Reynolds was warned by her brother, MMA Heavyweight Champion Matt Reynolds, to stay away from his friends; they only wanted one thing, and in the end they’d break her heart. She heard it, but the desire to have the one man she couldn’t led her down the forbidden path to pursue him; he also happens to be one of her brother’s best friends. Tyler Rushing can’t deny his attraction to her, and he’s afraid she’ll want more than what he can give her. When he finds out that’s not the case … everything changes. They have no choice but to keep their time a secret, and it’s a secret that’ll stay with them forever.

My Opinion

I've have been waiting for this book since I saw the author announce it's release so when I saw it up on Amazon, I had to buy it instantly. I will also say that it messed up my plans by arriving early and forcing me to start it before getting any work done--not that I'm complaining.

L.P. Dover's Meant for Me was what introduced me to the world of MMA romances and she still remains my favourite author in the genre. I love her fighters and I can't wait to see where she takes this series. It had everything I've come to expect plus one more aspect.

One of the things I liked about this book was that they were a grittier version of the fighters' lifestyles. It was a realistic portrayal of their lives and gave an all access view of their true characters without the true love aspect. I will admit because this book is split into two parts, with two stories, the sections were shorter so I felt I was left hanging with each ending. However, I liked that the girls were continued throughout both books. Their relationship was believable and I liked their strong personalities. The endings also have me intrigued as to what is install for the guys next.

Overall, this is a hot book that shows the gritty, edgier side to the fighters'lifestyles. It was a gripping, page-turning read and it has just made me want the next book straight away!
