Overview

Two is always better than one.

Knowing a fighter's desires and needs are one thing, but actually experiencing them is another. A Fighter's Desire gives you not one, but two stories full of hardcore passion, angst, and action that'll leave you breathless and aching for more.

Part One: Ryley and Camden Jameson, well-known MMA fighters and identical twins, were just as aggressive and passionate in the bed as they were in the ring. They loved a good fight, and that's exactly what they got when they met Ashleigh Warren. The brothers had a habit of sharing things-including women-and she happened to be the only one they truly craved. However, the problem was getting her to agree to their proposition. It was one she couldn't refuse, but she knew it wouldn't be easy to win. Nonetheless, she sure as hell was going to enjoy it.

Part Two: Fighting temptation isn't easy when you're constantly around the one person you've desired more than any other. Gabriella Reynolds was warned by her brother, MMA Heavyweight Champion Matt Reynolds, to stay away from his friends; they only wanted one thing, and in the end they'd break her heart. She heard it, but the desire to have the one man she couldn't led her down the forbidden path to pursue him; he also happens to be one of her brother's best friends. Tyler Rushing can't deny his attraction to her, and he's afraid she'll want more than what he can give her. When he finds out that's not the case ... everything changes. They have no choice but to keep their time a secret, and it's a secret that'll stay with them forever.

    Must Read! Once you start, you won't be able to stop!

    There is no way I couldn't give this book 5 stars! Sexy MMA fighters, what more could a girl ask for!? Ryley and Camden were my favorite story, and I wish there was more of them in this book, but Tyler definitely does not disappoint. There were a few minor grammatical details that I noticed but they didn't detract from the overall product. And such an amazing book this was. I highly recommended it and promise you will fall in love! Once you start reading, you won't be able to put it down! L.P Dover has done it yet again!

     L.P. Dover has once again delivered a knock out of a book! She certainly understands what her fighter's want and how they are going to get it.  A Fighter's Desire is two (TWO!!!) stories that are steamy, appealing, and will have you looking for a fighter of your own.  Ms. Dover certainly knew her way around the ring when writing this awesome book.  She gives you characters that you will fall in love with and will leave you wanting more!  Get wrapped up with the twins, Ryley and Camden in Part One and then Tyler brings you even more hot action in Part Two.  
     If you are looking for a hot new read, this is definitely  the book for you!  Grab a copy today!

    In all fairness, I disliked Part I so much that I refused to was

    In all fairness, I disliked Part I so much that I refused to waste more of my Saturday by reading Part II; therefore this review only covers the portion of the book dedicated to the story about Ryley, Camden and Ashleigh. Not sure how this book garnered so many 5* reviews; it's nothing like the blurb implies. I genuinely expected a sizzling read about a threesome that included twin brothers and the chick who tamed them. Instead I got a lukewarm story about twin manwhores and a girl who thought she could beat them at their own game. I can only guess Ashleigh (stupid spelling) gained her sexual prowess from her porn industry ex since it was made clear that she wasn't the type to sleep around or engage in one night stands. Ashleigh first refuses the brothers' offer of a menage but because they're so hot she succumbs to their revised plan of her spending a night with each brother separately. I about died laughing at their ham-handed proposal and the subsequent bloody fight to see who would get her first. Cue Camden, winner of first night rights, and his startling personality disorder. He morphs from the sexy, attentive gentleman who holds Ashleigh's car door and gives her multiple screaming Os to the douche who treats her like a convenient hole to plug when she dares to initiate dinner conversation. Her date with Ryley is the opposite; his first interactions with Ashleigh are crude and rude but come date day he's all down to earth and boy next door. Of course, (and against all odds), they begin to have feelings for each
    other and agree to take their relationship to the next step. Oh, but wait! Ashleigh's male BFF just broke up with his girlfriend and since she has low key been hot for him all along and BFF decides to reciprocate, Ashleigh tells Ryley "I'm sorry... I love him. I've always loved him." This after a night of hot marathon sex, soul searching and bonding with Ryley. So to cover his hurt Ryley pretends he's not affected and goes back to being a manwhore with brother Cam and I assume Ashleigh lives HEA with her BFF.
    Since these events took place and wrapped up in a whopping 1913/4061 locations I know I'm not being harsh when I say there was NO real personality development nor any backstory for any of our characters, primary or secondary. I was left with a feeling of blah due to the fact there was zero connection or chemistry bt *any* of the characters in this book. And this included the twins! LOL I can't even form an opinion as to whether this segment of the story had a happy ending for the characters. I know it didn't for me.

    This is the first book that I've read by this author and I have to say that I was thoroughly impressed with this novel. First, we get two hot-as-hell twins - which is important!! And second, the story itself is well written. I was hoping this book would be as awesome as the reviews I read and I am glad to say that this book lived up to my expectations. I can't wait to read the next book in the series :)

    Another KO by LP Dover. This two part book introduces a bunch of new characters while still linking together the ones you fell in love with I her other books. The book introduces us to two strong leading ladies, who's lives are shown in each part of this book seperately but intertwined as well, as they journey through life finding true love. And the men they leave in their path to find what their hearts desire. In the first part we get to feast our fantasies on the notorious bad boys of MMA...the Jameson twins. And you can't help but fall in love with them despite their whorish ways. This part of the book is devious, sexy, and full of hot sweaty men. And the games they play....but boy have they met their match in Ashleigh, who plays their game as good if not better than the twins. Who doesn't love that! The second part introduces us to Tyler. A stong alpha male with sexy tatted arms. Also shows off the hidden fight skills of one of the leading ladies Gabriella, who turns heads in and out of the ring...and is non other than sister to MMA Heavyweight champion Matt 'The Destroyer' Reynolds. From a kick ass chick fight...to a birthday party all men dream of
    .to hot shower sex....this part will leave you hot and steamy and praying for your own personal MMA fighter. Looking foward to more from LP Dover. She never disappoints.

    LP Dover has done it again! I have read almost all of LP's books, and this is by far one of the best ones. Once I got into it, I couldn't put it down. I can't wait for more wonderful books by LP. If you haven't read any of her books, start now. Read this one and it will pull you in with the sexy MMA fighters.

     I am in MMA/UFC fever! I can't believe that I would love to wat

     I am in MMA/UFC fever! I can't believe that I would love to watch this but after reading A Fighter's Desire it's all I can think about. Getting to know the characters in this story has my head spinning wanting to know more about all of them! I absolutely fell in love with Ryley he melted my heart! This big legend of a man that deep inside was a heart of a teddy bear for the right woman! Camden was the guy I wanted to hate at first but quickly changed my mind as soon as I knew his story. Gabriella and her best friend Ashleigh have some pretty fantastic times of their own that will leave your head swimming in desires unknown. As this book goes along the story line broken hearts and realized dreams are met and entered. No one character in A Fighter's Desire will leave you bored each one will take you down a road of wild rides and hidden pleasures unlike anything I have read before! I for one am in a need of the next book with more of this story to be told! I can't wait!

    I received a copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Rea

    I received a copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads, so here it is. I am a sucker for MMA fighters and wanted to read this on after reading the synopsis. Part One: Ryley and Camden Jameson are known in and out of the ring as aggressive and passionate. They have even shared the same woman, just because the could. When they see Ashleigh Warren they both want her first. So they come up with a plan that she can't refuse. But what they don't know is that Ashleigh is not a push over. She is attracted to them both but can she spent the night with both fighters? So how will their time together end up? 
    Part Two: Gabriella Reynolds was raised in the fighter world, her brother is the Heavyweight Champion Matt Reynolds. He is overprotective and has warned his fighter buddies to stay away from Gabby. Gabby has her eye on Tyler Rushing, Matt's best friends. But Matt doesn't do relationships. He fights, wins and has women falling all over him. He loves his life as it is. He is attracted to Gabby but can he spend time with her without real feelings coming out? Can Gabby have her one time with Matt without loosing her heart? 
    I hope there will be more of the Twins of Terror & Ashleigh, Gabby & Tyler and the other fighters. This is a first for me from L.P. Dover and I loved it. Can't wait for Tyler's Undoing (book 2) due out August 2014.

    This is the first book in L.P.'s new MMA fighter series Gloves O

    This is the first book in L.P.'s new MMA fighter series Gloves Off and I must say that it's the perfect start to an awesome new series.

    This book has two parts to it which means we get two stories...yeah!!! The first part centers around the Jameson twins Ryley and Camden. These two boys have quite the reputation and are known for their abilities both in and out of the ring. Ryley and Camden have been known to share everything and that includes the women they sleep with. In enters Ashleigh Warren, the best friend of their friend Gabriella, and a woman unlike any they have met before. When they proposition her she says no and walks away from them even though she's very tempted by their offer. Ashleigh wants them to work for it. She manages to turn both of these fighters lives upside down and inside out.

    The second part of this book is about Gabriella Reynolds and Tyler Rushing. If these two names sound familiar to you that's because we met them in Fighting For Love. Gabriella is the little sister of Matt "The Destroyer" Reynolds the current MMA Heavyweight Champion. Matt has always looked out for his sister and has made sure that all of his fighter buddies know that she's off limits. They aren't even to think about touching her or he will give them a beat down like they've never had before. Tyler Rushing is Matt's best friend and an up and coming Champion in the MMA world. Gabriella and Tyler are both attracted to one another but won't act upon it because of Matt. That's all about to change though because Gabriella has come up with a plan with help from her friend Ryley Jameson that will hopefully allow her to spend one night with Tyler, but can she go through with it?

    This book was absolute amazeballs and kept me on the edge of my seat wondering what was gonna happen next. A non-stop thrill ride from cover to cover that left me wanting more of these sexy fighters. I can't wait until October when I get to return to the MMA world for the next book in the Gloves Off Series. This book is a definite must read!!!!

    Whenever I see a new book by L.P. Dover I get excited because I know I am going to be spending some quality time with an awesome new set of characters. She did not disappoint with the release of A Fighter’s Desire. Without giving away any spoilers, I will say the book is riveting, full of emotional rollercoasters, and a cast of characters that will grab your heart from the beginning. I felt a myriad of emotions while I read this book, frustration being one of them! Frustration in this sense, though, was a good frustration. It left me wanting more and I wanted to immediately talk to her and demand to know when the next installment comes out! The characters will grab you and force you to walk in their life for a few hours and by the end of it, you will be enthralled. L.P. Dover has done it again and I would highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good romance.

    Okay, so here's the deal, this book is frackin HOT!! The way I thought it was going with Ryley, totally didn't happen. I was silently rooting for him though. Such a shame! However, I do understand where Ashleigh is coming from. Hey, she got to have her fun too!!




    Mrs Dover gets I swear, better and better with each book that comes out!
    I'm not usually into the fighter scene because of the whole cauliflower ear thing, but my goodness does she make them sound soooo sexy!!!
    Who wouldn't mind to have a piece of that hardness? YUM!!
    I meant the body ladies!! geez, perverts!




    Ashleigh is wanted by both Ryley and Camden. Twins at that.
    Can we say double trouble?
    Did anyone hear the Doublemint jingle? Double your pleasure, double your fun?




    Okay back to the review:
    UGH wait!! I can't really give one without giving the story away!! However I will tell you this:
    Part One is funny well what happens to Camden is funny to me because he deserved it.
    I was rooting for Ashleigh and Ryley and a part of me wishes for it to be true. Reign that bad boy in! I am hoping to read more about the characters in Part One because they were fun as hell!! I loved them!




    Part Two:
    Is more centered around Gabrielle who you may remember is Matt's little sister.
    Little she is no more! She has grown up to be quite a beautiful rocking lady.
    She's been warned to stay away from those MMA fighters. Why? Well you know why. They are men! Men are pigs. Matt being who is, or was, understands this and firmly tells her to stay away.




    Now if only she didn't already have the hots for one, Tyler Rushing.
    She is going to get what she wants.
    She has some pretty good ideas for doing that, with the help of Ryley.




    Oh she gets into a couple of binds, but nothing she can't take care of herself. She's a strong woman that's for sure! I can't wait to read her next adventure either. Especially her nemesis.




    Definitely recommend this story if you like a little sex, fighting, laughter, and an all around good time.
    If this was a web series.
    I wish because that would be epic!

    Ding...Ding...Ding!!!!! Knock out!!!!! That's what L.P. Dover this with story. It was fan-freaking-tastic!!!! Her books get better and better. I am always very excited to get my hands on one of her books. The story was written beautifully and well thought out. I felt as if I was a part of the story. I would trade places with these females in a heartbeat just to have these MMA fighters as friends. I have met them in other books, but when they get a book of their own, I really feel for them. I have come to care about these characters and what happens to them. I loved how the story switched POVs. It was nice to get inside each of their heads and see what they were thinking, especially the MMA fighters.




    Part One




    Double Trouble and oh boy that is a fact. But who couldn't love the twins. Ryley and Camden share everything, including women. When Ashleigh stepped into the picture, they both wanted her. She tried to fight past her desires, but being with the twins at the same time, was a moment no one could pass up, not even her. Camden turned out to be a real piece of work though. I felt sorry for him, because he keeps everything hidden and has so many regrets. He has so much anger in him because of that. Ryley is a sweet guy. He tried to show Ashleigh that she was more than just a one night stand. Deep down, I think he really started to care for her. I love both Ryley and Camden. I hope they both get their acts together and find the one woman that will tame them both.




    Part Two




    This story focuses on Gabriella and Tyler. Gabriella is Matt's brother, and he warned all the MMA fighters to stay away from her. They are all afraid of him so of course they do. Matt is very protective of his sister and I love that about him. Tyler has changed in this story. We all knew him as a real nice guy, but all that fame got to his head, and now he is like Ryley and Camden. Not into commitments. They want to keep having their fun. I am really hoping Tyler goes back to his old self, because these two really seem to care about each other. I also want to point out how I love that we finally get to see Gabriella fighting!!!! Finally, a woman that kicks some butt in the ring!!!!! There was a scare between Ashleigh, Ryley and Colin in this book. Everything supposedly turned out fine with it, but to me something still seems off. I kinda hope that the scare comes true!!!




    A Fighter's Desire was a fantastic book that had me hooked from beginning to end. Each part left off with a cliffhanger that definitely left me wanting more. My only complaint, if you want to call it a complaint, is that I wish it wasn't in two parts. I love how L.P. gave each main character their own book. I wanted more of Ashleigh and the twins, and Gabriella and Tyler. I know I'll get more in the next book, but I wanted more now!!!! So that is a compliment as well!!!! This is a book that I highly recommend!!!! Everyone should read it!!! I know I will reread it in the near future!!!
