Winning Love by Abby Niles
Mac "The Snake" Hannon has spent years throwing himself into cage fighting as a way to lash back at the natural disaster that destroyed his future. A call for help has Mac returning to the one place he swore never to return: Kansas—in the height of tornado season.
There he meets free-spirited Gayle Matthews. At first he wants nothing to do with the infuriatingly persistent woman, but the crazy challenges she tosses his way are impossible to resist. As she thaws years of bitterness, bringing back the Mac he believed long gone, he starts to make peace with the past and see the future again. Until he learns she chases his worst nightmare—then he can't get away fast enough.
Meteorologist and storm chaser, Gayle Matthews is no stranger to being left behind and now believes in living in the moment. She wants to do just that with the handsome extreme fighter with the achingly sad eyes. As she works to replace the sorrow with desire, she finds herself breaking her one rule: have fun but don't fall in love. When he suddenly pushes her away and she discovers the horrifying reason why, she issues one more challenge: face his fear and come on a chase with her.
Will squaring off with the past lead to a victory for heartache or love?
Fantastic emotional romance with a sexy MMA fighter!
Mac "The Snake" Hannon, MMA fighter, was still fighting demons from a tragedy in Kansas that destroyed his life four years ago. Lance, a childhood friend, needs Mac to help him train for a fight. Because Lance once saved Mac's life, he agrees, reluctantly. He wasn't expecting sassy, no-filtered, smart mouthed, flirtatious, and sexy as hell Gayle Matthews. She's Lance's neighbor and just what Mac needs. No one knows that Gayle's fighting her own demons. Will Gayle help Mac heal from the loss of his family by a tornado four years ago or will she push him further away when he finds out exactly what the sexy meteorologist does for a living?
Fabulous story! There were so many "LOL" moments. I loved it! The squirt gun incident at the beginning was my favorite. This book contained so many emotions. There were many laughs, some tears, strong emotions, and forgiveness. There were some pretty scary moments as well. This is the third book in the Love to the Extreme Series and in can absolutely be read as a stand alone. I completely enjoyed the wide array of emotions this book put me through. I can't wait to read whatever's next for this very talented author. (hopefully it will be Lance's story)
Received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
This was Good
Mac was surprisingly interesting. He made me fall in love with him. I loved Gayle's attitude through the whole story and I loved the build up between the two of them. It was slow and steady and funny.
