eARC received from the author in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: February 19th 2015

For so long, UFC Middleweight fighter, Camden Jameson lived in his twin brother’s shadow, competing to be the best. When he lost his way, he turned to the Dark Side and did some unforgiveable things. After his betrayal, he tried to earn his redemption, but it wasn’t enough. Now his whole world has fallen apart and he’s on the run from those who want him dead. But he’s not alone. 

Undercover agent, Brooklyn Avery, has been assigned to Camden’s case, to watch and protect him. For months, she’s been in the shadows, keeping her distance. All of that changes when the mission takes a dangerous turn and she needs to get closer to protect him. Their love is forbidden, but once they see past each other’s scars, they realize they have what it takes to heal the other. Unfortunately, Camden still has a price to pay for his sins.

Lives will be lost, some will be damaged, and a dark, hidden secret will be revealed. In the end, Camden finally learns what it means to put everything on the line for love, even if it costs him.

My Opinion

I'm kind of rendered speechless right now. The only word that comes to mind is wow.

In Camden's Redemption, L. P. Dover has done it again. I have been excited to read Camden's story for a while because he's been such a complex character throughout the series, and his book definitely didn't disappoint.

From start to finish this book had me hooked. It takes you on Camden's journey as he grows and develops into a character worthy of redemption. I will admit that I've kind of always had a soft spot for him. He put up a tough front but this book shows his softer side as he comes to terms with the consequences of his actions. He's a tortured and troubled hero you can really vouch for.

Similarly, Brooklyn was brilliant for him. She was strong, feisty, and kick-ass. It was exactly what Camden needed and I liked her unwavering faith in his change. They were perfect for one another.

As well as this just like with all of L.P's books, the story is just as action-packed, and full of steamy romance. Neither of the aspects disappointed and I was kept turning the pages even when I really should have been doing other things.

If there was one thing I'd say, it's things did seem a little quick with certain things between Cam and B (a few reveals come to mind). I also did figure out who was behind things but it didn't detract from the story in anyway because the characters are so great.

Overall I loved this and I'm so sad there's only going to be one more book in this series. I know I say it every time, but L.P's Gloves Off series is my all-time favourite MMA series. Her characters are second to none and I would highly recommend them.




“One of these days you’re going to realize what you have.”

“How can you say that? You don’t even know me or what I’ve done.”

“Then show me,” I shouted. “Stop pushing everyone away when they only want to help you.”

“Fine.” He ripped off his shirts, baring his scarred and tattooed skin. They were on his arms, across his chest, and all over his back. He must have done some heavy fighting in the Dark Side. “Do you see all of this?” he asked angrily. “I got them all from fighting, from hurting people. It’s what I do. It’s who I am. I’m a monster, Brooklyn. People are scared of me. And for the life of me, I don’t know why you aren’t.”
