Book Tour ~ ARC Review: Tyler's Undoing (Gloves Off #2) by L.P. Dover

Tyler's Undoing (Gloves Off, #2)eARC received for the tour in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: October 6th 2014

She was what he wanted … but she was also his undoing.

Through mutual understanding, Tyler’s secret affair with Gabriella Reynolds has come to an end. It was a decision that not only saved their friendship, but it was one that would change Tyler Rushing’s life forever. 

For the past couple of years, Tyler was known as being one of the UFC’s most memorable and sexy heavyweight fighters. Now he has the chance to win the title and claim the fame he so deserves. Having all the women he wanted was the highlight of his days; at least until Kacey Andrews walked through the door of his gym. He couldn’t keep his eyes off of her; there was an innocence about her that sparked his interest and he wasn’t going to give up until he had her. Little did he know that Kacey Andrews wasn’t a stranger … she was part of his world; he just didn’t know it. It was a secret she’d worked hard to keep hidden.

Kacey spent years trying to get away from the fighting world, away from the man who was hated among the MMA elite … her brother, Kyle Andrews. Unfortunately, she was brought back into it when Tyler’s relentless battle for her heart won her over, drawing her in. The only problem is that secrets never stay buried forever. In the end, Tyler will have a decision to make, and it’s one that could possibly destroy his and Kacey’s life … forever.


Bringing her hand up to my lips, I kissed it gently and locked my gaze onto hers, hoping to erase the doubt on her face. “I don’t want to get hurt either, but it’s a risk you take when you let people in. I can’t promise I’m not going to do stupid shit and piss you off, but I can promise I will always be honest and straightforward. If there’s something you want to know, I’ll tell you the truth.”

Her face instantly lit up, a mischievous smirk splaying across her lips. “So if I ask you anything, you’ll tell me the truth?” she inquired curiously.

“Yes, but I’m warning you. Be mindful of the questions, because you might not want to hear the answers.”

My Opinion

I've been waiting for this since I finished reading A Fighter's Desire on it's release day, so I was ecstatic I received an ARC. I will admit that I have slightly overdosed on MMA romances and gone off them, however L.P was the first author I read in this genre with Meant for Me so her books always excite me. Personally, no other author's characters have lived up to L.P's and I just love this series.

Tyler's undoing was no exception. It has everything I love from this author: hot romance, intensity, and suspense. I liked how L.P moved away from Gabriella's relationship with Tyler and gave us a new character to fall in love with. Kacey was great. You love her instantly from how she treats Tyler and it was great to see him work for her. Of course the reader knows her secrets so you're waiting for it all to kick off, but I found the emotions to be very believable and all the characters were easy to connect with. L.P has created a brilliant cast in her MMA books, and I'm glad they all get a look in throughout the series. It's clear they're a close community and more like a family.

Similarly, there are also clear 'villains' aka Kyle. He's a great antagonist and someone you love to hate. He creates a good amount of angst, drama, and tension in Tyler's Undoing and he actually shocked me with the lengths he went to, to bring Tyler down. His ending was satisfying though.

Likewise, I really liked Tyler's intensity that was balanced well by his humour and flirting. The emotions in Tyler and Kacey's relationship draws you in and I couldn't stop reading.

Overall, this book was brilliant, just like all the other. I love this author's work--whether it's Second Chance or Gloves Off--and would highly recommend any of her books. They're great reads, with great characters and I guarantee you won't be able to put them down! Now to wait for the next book.
