I am a total fan of MMA and the UFC so I was very happy for the opportunity to read this book. Throw in an alpha-male and add that to the fact that I love a good romance and I figured that the chances of this book being a success were pretty solid. I'm very pleased to have been correct in that assumption. This book was very sweet, a little spicy, and a lot of fun.




I adore that our leading lady isn't part of "the norm" that we come across so frequently in books these days. I detest spoilers in reviews so I will just say that she isn't in college, isn't petite and isn't a damsel in distress. She's someone that I would probably get along with exceedingly well in real life. Honestly, all of the characters in this book are well written with great personality. I could imagine some of them as being inspired by people I actually have known.




While I have no idea if this is to be a stand alone book or part of a series, I did see potential for there to be additional books moving some of Extreme Love's supporting characters into main character roles. If that turns out to be the case I would certainly consider reading them.




I have only one complaint about the story, and without give anything away I'll just say that ONE of the scenes of conflict left me feeling a bit let down. There was ample opportunity to make this scene more gritty, perhaps even frightening. That said, this one little flaw did not take anything away from my enjoyment of the book over all. I am more than happy to have read it and already have a few friends in mind to recommend it to.

This book didn’t work for me. Apart from Dante, who really is a decent character, the book felt flat. Therefore, I can’t recommend and would pass this up. ~ Under the Covers

There were two reasons why I picked up this book:
1.The cover – Look at those abs!
2.I read the blurb and when I saw that the hero, Dante was a MMA fighter, I knew I had to have it!

Unfortunately for me, that’s where my love for the book started and ended.

Caitlyn Moore believes herself to be fat. She doesn’t have a healthy self image and it is very, very prominent in this book. She is so insecure about herself that it’s a downer and instead of making me connect with her, it only infuriated me. All she thinks about is her weight, weight, weight, which in turn causes her to worry, worry, worry.

When Dante Jones, a hot MMA fighter expresses some interests in her, she completely shuts him down. And when he persists, she does it again and again. All her moaning about being not good enough for Dante because of her distorted body image was so persistent that I ended up believing that about Cait. She doesn’t deserve Dante. Dante is a really nice guy and he genuinely wanted to be with her but because of her attitude and her hang ups, Cait doesn’t see that.

As a result, I thought that there was zero chemistry between the hero and heroine. As much as Dante tries – and Lord knows the boy does try very hard – in the end, I felt nothing for the couple. Niles kept saying how there was such great chemistry between them, that one sizzling hot look said it all – but the author never showed it. It’s not enough for me to tell readers that there is chemistry between characters. You have to show it. Make me believe in the couple and then the chemistry comes on its own. I felt nothing.

Another thing that bothered me were the side characters. I found them to be annoying and quite frankly, they were all jerks. As the story went on, I felt less and less inclined to read.

This book didn’t work for me. Apart from Dante, who really is a decent character, the book felt flat. Therefore, I can’t recommend and would pass this up.

    Don't bother

    ## Way too much emphasis on the heroine's weight. I wanted to throw my nook against the wall it was so frustrating. Skip this one.
