Two months ago, everything changed. The enemy no longer feels the need to sulk in the shadows. Instead, he hides in plain sight and prepares his attack… against Reagan Jameson.
Reagan knew this day would come. She proudly holds the featherweight title and is known as one of the sexiest female fighters in MMA history. She can handle her own, and that’s exactly what she plans to do with Nikolai. Unfortunately, things aren’t as they were before. When given an offer she can’t refuse, Reagan is well aware nothing good will come of it.
They promised her power, prestige, and money… a world full of intrigue and dangerous desires. Not being able to resist the allure, she gives in and becomes a pawn in their game. She’s able to fool those closest to her into believing everything is okay… except for Braden Emerson.
Braden’s reputation as one of the toughest fighters in the circuit hasn’t gone unnoticed. In fact, it’s his skills that get him lured into the pit of danger. While he vows to keep Reagan safe no matter the cost, his desire for her is used against him. As passion ignites between the pair, they must work together if they hope to survive.
Fighting for a title is one thing, but nothing beats the stakes of fighting for love. This is one TKO that could cost them everything.
Another hit in my book!
LP Dover is one of my favorite authors. She never disappoints with her writing. Keep up the great work and I can’t wait to see how this whole story with the douche bags play out. I love seeing this family revisited.
Wonderful story filled with the unexpected
I am so happy after reading Taking the Fight. It checked off so many of my favorite genres including MMA, Mafia, friend to lovers and workplace romance. It didn't hurt that there were a lot of hotties decorating the pages either. The ending had me bubbling over with happiness making it the best escape from reality.
Carter and Emma from book one are leading their best life, planning a wedding with Braden as best man and Reagan as maid of honor. Braden and Reagan are going to have to be together a lot. With all the tension between them I had to wonder who would explode first. Or even better, who would admit that they had feelings for the other. They definitely steamed up the pages. Now, if only they could stay out of trouble.
Reagan is on hiatus while her parents are away. When Annika asks her to train her she saw no harm even though she was first approached by Nikolai about training her. It doesn't take long for Reagan to be way over her head in the mafia. They are the masters at twists, shocks and traps. How deep with Reagan get or will it be too late.
Annika's brother, Finn, wants Reagan for his own. Her feelings are of no consequence. When Braden steps in to protect her the gloves come off. Honor no longer matters. Determination is the only power. The question is, at the end of the day, who will tap out and who will walk away a winner.
4.5 Stars! I really enjoyed this book! This is the second book in the ‘Gloves Off: Next Generation’ series and can be read as a standalone. The book is told in a duel point of view between the two main characters, Braden and Reagan. They did seem to fall in love pretty fast but I’m sure it was drawn out in book one of the series. The author kept me guessing the whole time about who the bad guys were. This book has plenty of mystery, suspense, brutal fight scenes, hot ‘sexy times’, intrigue, action, dark sexy mafia men and it’s all wrapped up with a HEA ending. Definitely recommend this book.
