***A STEAMY, ROMANTIC SUSPENSE (STANDALONE) NOVEL BY THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR, L.P. DOVER. If you love sexy MMA fighters then this book is definitely for you. Let the fight begin …***

After a night of raw passion with the man Claire O’Briene had been secretly admiring for years, she thought their time together had come once and for all. Fate had finally brought them back to each other, but unfortunately nothing had changed. He was still the same man who ran away from relationships. Against his better judgment, Mason Bradley gave in to the temptation and allowed himself one night with the one woman he’d been too afraid to want … too afraid to need.

Four months after leaving Claire and regretting every minute of it, Mason gets called in for an undercover mission that’s not only dangerous, but brings back a past he spent years trying to forget. A past of fighting … of getting in the ring and using his fists to get what he wanted: money, women, and drugs. Now there are fighters turning up dead, and it’s Mason’s job to find out the truth.

Knowing he might not come out of the mission alive, Mason seeks out Claire to tell her how he truly feels, only to find another man competing for her love as well. Fighting is what he’s good at, and for once he will be fighting not only for justice … but for love.


***Contains Graphic Sex, Strong Language and Adult Situations. Not for young readers***

***Lauren – #NerdGirlSphinx’s  Review***
I really enjoyed this book.  If I were good about updating my Goodreads account, I would throw this on a beach read shelf.  It is an easy, quick read.  It was predictable, but not in the boring sense.  More in the sense that it is just that type of story.  Undercover cop and an MMA fighter, all rolled up into one nice little nugget of sexy.

I liked the main characters, but was a little irritated with the love triangle.  Thankfully it did not last too long to be distasteful or distract me from the actual story.  The only reason I am giving this a 3-star rating instead of a 4-star rating is because I have read another series by Miss Dover, and she really set that bar high for herself with those books!  I would also like to point out that I would read other books in this series (and I have read one other for review in the past and enjoyed it as well).

I would recommend this book to anyone that has a few free hours to sit and read… maybe a brunch read with a mimosa… or 2.  Or 4. ;)
