**A STEAMY, ROMANTIC SUSPENSE (STANDALONE) NOVEL BY USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR, L.P. DOVER. If you like sexy MMA fighters then this is the book for you.**

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.

Bawaka's Book Fair - Kim Walker
"The gloves certainly come off in Meant For Me! L.P. Dover has delivered a knockout book that has romance and a hot MMA fighter, Mason! Readers will love Mason not only for his sexiness, but his ability inside and out of the ring." ~Bawaka’s Book Fair
Two Sassy Chicks - Jennifer Mitchell
"Mason Bradley is the best of both worlds - passionate lover to Claire, the one woman he can't get enough of, and fierce protector, going back to his past as a fighter to uncover and stop a deadly trend. Mason's past and present collide in this fast-paced story. It will leave you on the edge and breathless. By far my favorite book of L.P.'s to date!" ~Two Sassy Chicks

    I always look forward to reading any book by L. P. Dover, becaus

    I always look forward to reading any book by L. P. Dover, because I haven't read a book from her that I haven't loved. I was very excited to get my hands on Meant for Me.  I have loved Mason in the other books so I was very, very happy that he got his own story.  Meant for Me is a fantastic book that had me hooked after the very first page.  I had to know what happened next.  I loved how the story swapped POVs between Mason and Claire.  The plot kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time.  Even though it was a little predictable on who the bad guys were, I still kept turning page after page wondering what was going to happen next. The characters in this story were well developed.  I love seeing them grow into who they are suppose to be.  




    Meant for me follows Mason and Claire on an undercover case to find out who is killing the MMA fighters.  Mason went from the good guy cop to the bad boy fighter. This story is also about love and what one would do for love.  




    Mason was completely drool worthy.  I loved him as a cop, but when I got to see him as a MMA fighter, he became even sexier.  Mason is a very loyal person and that is what I loved about him.  He always put others before himself.  I also loved how protective he was over Claire, and how I got to see a different side of him when he was around her. He wasn't the type to share his feelings so when he did with Claire, she knew how monumental that was.  Seeing Mason's softer side made me love him even more.  Claire was a very sincere person.  Even though her family had money, she didn't think she was above everyone else.  She was a character that I could relate to easily in this book.  Claire was always there for Mason.  She would even put herself in danger to protect him.  They were two peas in a pod.  Always trying to protect the other.  Tyler was a new character that I also really liked.  He is one of those down to earth, flirtatious type guys. I am hoping to get to see more of him!!!  I also loved the fact that I got to see Melissa and Brett again, because I loved them in the previous book.  It was nice to see what has become of them.




    Meant for Me was a great book that I will read over and over again. I enjoyed everything about this book so I highly recommend it. Mason is a character that I hope to see more of.  Especially with what happened in the end!!!  I want more!!!  Great job L.P!!!!

     Meant For Me is one sexy, steamy, thriller suspense ride you won't soon forget! SEXY is not even enough of a description for me to use to describe what I read. I need a a cold shower and the a/c and it's -14 where I live. I was so enthralled with this story that I couldn't nor did I want to put it down. Every fiber of my being was vested in Meant For Me. I read scene after scene wondering if the story could get any better and boy did it ever! The characters were realistic not just like in some stories to good to be true. I loved Claire's fire and passion for things and how once she set her sights on something she didn't let can't stop her it only made her fight harder. Mason now let's see he had to figure out how to pull his head from his
    bum or he was never going to get what he wanted no that's not saying that the package was not complete he was smart and sexy he just didn't know how to listen to his heart and trust what he felt. When Claire and Mason came together it was like magic and the whole world stopped in that moment and nothing else mattered or could compare. So when Mason takes up in an undercover mission Fighting in the MMA fighting circle he and Claire are faced with some hard and irreversible consequences that could change their lives forever. Would they be able to face these challenges or would it take away everything they fought so hard for. Those questions my dear friends are for you to discover the answers to. Go grab a copy of Meant for Me as L.P. Dover will not disappoint you with her writing skills.

    Mason Bradley is an undercover cop who takes on a mission that is sure to be deadly: to go back into the MMA ring and try to solve a string of murders in the fighting world. What’s even more deadly?  The fact that Claire O’Briene was left with a broken heart by Mason! Their paths manage to collide again when Claire is able to give him a push into the fighting world and the romance picks up where it left off. 
    This book had me run through a gambit of emotions, all of which were great, and even had me laughing! The sex scenes were amazing and certainly will please readers who love steamy moments!  As someone who has recently begun reading books that focus on MMA characters, this certainly was a knock out! If you are looking for a new read, don’t hesitate to grab this book TODAY!!!

    4.5 Fighting Stars This was my first book for me but the third

    4.5 Fighting Stars

    This was my first book for me but the third book in the Second Chances series by Dover. The prologue immediately hooks you and the book goes from there. It is told in alternating POV, sometimes Claire's and the other times Mason's.

    Even without reading the previous books, it is obvious that Mason and Claire have a history and unfortunately, it did not end well. The interesting thing is that Claire and Mason's cousin are still close so in turn, Mason still has interaction with Claire.

    Now I enjoyed Claire as a heroine but I found myself wondering how great is she?? A pro football player and an even hotter ex-MMA fighter both want her, not to mention that her old buddy Wade is willing to bet all to have her. I'm assuming she was really beautiful, but I digress.

    Those who have read the last book in this series know that Mason is a detective and he is going undercover as an MMA fighter to solve a crime. It works because Mason was an MMA fighter before. Due to the danger of the assignment Mason wants to see his cousin before and more importantly, he needs to clear the air with Claire.

    Claire has been trying hard to get over Mason and she has spent the last four months getting cozy with her friend Cooper, an NFL player. Needless to say, once Mason has made it clear how he feels for Claire, she can no longer deny her feelings for him and heads off to Vegas to let him know. While there Claire gets caught up in the danger as she helps Mason with the case and it is a fight to see if they get their HEA.

    I really enjoyed this story. The character development was good and I am a fan of all tatted up fighter stories. Claire and Mason's chemistry was great, but I feel bad because I thought she had pretty good chemistry with Cooper too. The mystery intertwined in this love story only added to the reading enjoyment. Mason made for an amazing hero in my book and I am thinking I will need to go back and read Melissa's story, to get some more Mason. The next book in the series will be Matt's, another MMA fighter we met in this story...kinda bummed, hoped Cooper would get his chance.

    Thanks to NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    Mason and Claire's story continues this series along and takes place after the wedding of family and friends.  Mason makes a mistake after the wedding and it winds up costing his a chance to be with Claire right then and there.  Months go by and then Mason finds out some news and decides to come clean with Claire to make things right.  Even though there was supposed to be some begging by Mason, there wasn't, Claire folded like a house of cards.  There were plot twists and turns that kept me interested.  An overall good read.

    I was given this book as an ARC for an honest review.
    I gave this book 5 stars. 
    This is book #3 in the Second Chances Series, but can be read as a standalone. 




    This is Mason and Claire's book. 








    We meet Mason in book two, but this book you actually get to dig deeper into his past, and find out what he truly thinks about Claire. After a "night of passion" he leaves her, regretting every second of it, and six months later, he gets a call after a heart wrenching event. You think he would have forgotten about his one night of love with Claire, but it's still on his heart everyday it seems. 




    While everything is happening to Mason over in North Carolina, you get a perspective from Claire over in California. After everything that happened with Claire's brother, she and Melissa are as close as ever. Although Claire is now in a relationship with the big football star Cooper, she still thinks about how much Mason hurt her six months ago. She wants to fall in love with Cooper, and we want her to fall in love with Cooper, but there's unforgiveness there holding her back. 




    When Mason comes to California to say goodbye to Melissa, and also to finally patch things up with Claire before his big "mission," Claire finally has to let fate take its course. Who will she choose? Her best friend who's always been there for her and picked her up when she fell down? Or her past lover who she's been burned by before? In this twisting novel of suspense and love, it's hard not to get lost in the story of two people coming together to not only solve one, but multiple problems as a whole. 




    With a surprise ending that I never saw coming, i fell in love with Claire and Mason simultaneously. This book had me on the edge of my seat at parts, but at others had me laughing until i was crying. Thank you for honestly, a wonderful read.

    4.5 Stars It started with Mason breaking Claire¿s heart by leav

    4.5 Stars

    It started with Mason breaking Claire’s heart by leaving. She thought they were in the same page after what happened. It was a great night of pleasure and she was sure they shared that connection. But she was wrong.




    Six months later, Mason was back. He got assigned to go undercover that is pretty much dangerous and speaks a lot about his past – fighting, women, drugs. Some fighters are turning up dead, and it is Mason’s job to solve the mystery. Before he goes into the pit hole, he made a stop. He went to California to Claire. He might not come out of the mission alive, and before (or IF) he dies, he wanted her to know about his feelings.




    AND HE WAS IN FOR THE FIGHT OF HIS LIFE.




    Claire moved on with a great guy, Cooper. Although he was near perfect, and even the sex was pretty much amazing, there was still something lacking. He could never spark that intense passion Mason can easily do even with him across the room.




    NOW THEY ARE GETTING THEIR SECOND CHANCE.




    But before they get into their happily-ever-after, they must first get out of the mission unscathed and fight their way inside the octagon ring.




    Here is a girl who really doesn’t have a lot of drama in her body. She’s strong, forgiving, and she does what exactly her heart dictates her to do (most of the times). She’s tough, and stood by her man all throughout the ordeal. She didn’t even waver when the danger came to her side. All she wanted was for Mason to be alive and safe.




    I loved her when she gave that second chance to him. She knew what she wanted – and she grabbed it wholeheartedly. Of course, she needed Mason to crawl a little. Nevertheless, I loved her character.




    And there’s Cooper – he was perfect, but her heart wasn’t just cut out for him. She had already given it years ago to Mason. I wish he’d have his own HEA in the near future too!




    Mason – he’s a god! He might have experienced  the bad side of being rich and famous back in his fighting days but he did a 180 after finding out someone close to him is about to die. He cleaned up his ways and joined the police force. Now, he was given a second chance to once again feel that adrenaline-pumping moment inside the ring.




    I have always loved books about second chances – and Meant for Me is one great book about it. It’s not just about having the opportunity about having that second chance in love, but in your dreams as well. This book has taught us to NEVER PASS that opportunity when you are offered that chance at whatever circumstances – you have already allowed it to pass once, and it has once again being offered to you – you’d be a fool to turn it down.








    The thrill of the chase and the unknown had made this book a page turner for me. Set in dual POV, I fell in love with the plot, the character and the suspense, swoon at Mason and the rest of the fighters, and sigh with envy at Claire to have this great, alpha lover in her bed.

    Claire thought that after years of wanting Mason after the spent

    Claire thought that after years of wanting Mason after the spent a night together finally that they would be together for now on. However Mason has never been one for settling down and has to tell Claire one night is all they can have. He broke her heart and now six months later he finally sees she is the one woman he loves and will do anything to keep her. However he will have to fight for her as someone else loves her and wants her as well. Mason has to go undercover and to find out who is killing fighters. Claire won't let him go alone once he tells her how he feels and now they may be fighting for more than their love. 




    This book is one I couldn't put down. I love Claire and Mason and had to keep reading to see what would happen next. Claire knows she stands the chance to get her heart broke again by Mason but she has to see what will happen with him. She is a strong woman with a past she hasn't let everyone know about. That past helps Mason on his case and she is right there for him cheering him on. At first I wondered how she could give him another chance but after I got to reading more about him I don't blame her one bit. He is a sexy, tough man who has never gave his heart to anyone but when he does it he gives it all. They have so much sexual heat between them I worried my kindle would start smoking. Besides the hottness there is so much amazing stuff that goes on in this book. There is a killer on the loose and Mason has to find and stop them. To do that he has to put his self in danger and Claire is right there with him. I loved all the action and while it's I knew who it was all the characters that are involved shocked me. If you love an action packed book that if full of yummy goodness you must try this one. I loved every bit of it.
