The gang is all here in this series finale. I was happy to read how Kyle's story ended- and also liked having a small glimpse into what the other charaters in the series have been up to.

This is the latest book in the Gloves Off Series. I would highly suggest reading the books that come before this in the series before reading this one; they are all extraordinary so you will not be disappointed. In this series you come to know Kyle “The Demon Slayer” Andrews as the fighter that everyone has for one reason or another. Even his own sister isn’t showing any love to him after what he did to her. There was an epic fight that took Kyle down from big-time fighter to paralyzed man that might never walk (let alone fight) again. But everyone deserves another chance, right? Kyle is trying to be a better person. He goes on a mission to get the love of his sister back and not to have everyone hate him still. This mission gives the books amazing ups and downs that will leave you feeling like you have just ridden an emotional rollercoaster complete with loops, twists and turns, and stomach-losing drops.  L.P. Dover has written another book that is perfectly put together, with an amazing plot, well-developed characters, and emotions that pull you into the story so you can’t stop until you are finished. I was able to read this book with minimal breaks (food and bathroom) and didn’t want to put it down for even those. I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone. L.P. Dover has made the impossible happen. I have fallen for Kyle.

Absolutely loved Kyle's return by L.P. Dover.  This is a cross between one of her fighting books and her second chance books all wrapped into one.   Kyle is a fighter that ends up getting the biggest second chance of all.  After a life of deceit and hate he turns over a new leaf and meets Megan. Megan decides to give him a chance and the sparks fly. I am so sad to see this series come to an end but Kyle will definitely win your heart. I can't wait to see what L.P. Dover has in store for us next.

I was so ecstatic to receive an ARC by the amazing LP Dover! I have been in love with this entire Gloves Off series and love me some hot fighters! I was curious to see how Kyle was going to redeem himself after all the crap he had drug others through. It felt a little hard to believe he would just make a complete 180 like he did. I wish we had seen more of his struggle from when he was paralyzed to give more of a background into his mindset. I was never a huge fan of Megan before in the other books but getting more of her background made me like her more. She is a fierce and tough heroin which is exactly the kind of girl Kyle needs. I would have liked a little more drama in their relationship. I felt like Megan trusted him too easily and I think Kyle needed to work harder than he did for everyone's forgiveness. I think it had to have been a tough job to get everything wrapped up in one book. I almost felt like digging deeper for these 2 would have been better but I know that likely would have resulted in a 2nd book. And as much as I love these sexy fighters I'm ready for LP to move onto something new. I need a fresh set of book boyfriends to fall for and I'm certain LP can deliver. Anxiously awaiting what comes next for LP and so honored to have gotten this ARC and chance to review.

WOW. I did not like Kyle in the other books in the series. He was a douchbag. Was not sure if he could redeem himself. Was I wrong. Absolutely love Kyle. So glad him and Megan got together and everything worked out like it should. An amazing ending to an exceptional series. A must read.

I love the entire series but I believe Kyle is my favorite! The fact that he can be so bad and have one thing change his whole perspective on life. Just because you make wrong decisions doesn't mean you can't change. Kyle proves that. L.P. Dover is a great writer that gets the details nailed to a tee!

Kyle's Return (Gloves Off #5) by L.P. Dover 5 stars Kyle and Megan's story is filled with danger, desire, intensity, blossoming love, serious sexual chemistry, hope, redemption, fear and healing. I absolutely loved the evolution of this story. The path for Kyle wasn't easy, but I loved every part of it. For Megan, each challenge that was thrown in her way only made her stronger and her compassion was evident throughout. There were parts that made me want to scream "NO" as they were happening. Other parts were seriously steamy. I loved this installment in the series!

This book changed my entire opinion about second chances. If everyone can prove that you can chance Kyle proved it. I wondered how Megan's story would go. She learned to defend herself from an abusive boyfriend and it saved her life. I loved this series and hate to see it finished, yet, at the same time I loved to see how it ended. Thank you Mrs. Dover for yet another Wonderful book.

5 star I was pulled right into this story. The story has laughs, pain, jealousy, secrets, betrayal, and heartbreak.  If you have not read the below I would recommend reading those books(s) first A Fighter's Desire: Part One (Gloves Off, #0.5) A Fighter's Desire: Part Two (Gloves Off, #0.6) Tyler's Undoing (Gloves Off, #1) Ryley's Revenge (Gloves Off, #2) Paxton's Promise (Gloves Off, #3) Camden's Redemption (Gloves Off, #4) Winter Kiss (Gloves Off, #4.5) This is Megan and Kyle’s story. After all the bad things Kyle did he should be used to the weird looks and mistrust from everyone.  Megan knows all the bad things that happened but she thinks he should get a chance to prove himself. They decide on a friendship that turns into something more.  Kyle’s things start getting destroyed and he wonders if someone is after him.  But could it be Megan’s crazy ex that caused her so much pain in the past?  Can they work together to figure out who the issue is or will Kyle push her away so try and protect her?  What happens when you past comes for you?  Who will make it out alive and who will suffer the most pain?  Can a person really change from a monster to a really great guy? I loved these characters and also the side characters. I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a great read.  I have to admit from the beginning of this series I didn’t like Kyle.  But he really grew on me in this book and I found myself falling for him.  I highly recommend this book and this series.

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads, so here is my review. Kyle's Return is the fifth book in the Gloves Off series by L.P. Dover and I am gonna miss these MMA fighters. Kyle has returned to try and salvage his relationship with his sister but everyone is wondering what he is really up too. He was the main fighter on the Dark Side and he hurt a lot of people, not just in the ring but outside of it too. So when he lost the feeling in his legs, he vowed to make things right to those he had wronged and worked for two years to walk again. When he shows up at Tyler's gym looking to see his sister, Tyler doesn't like the idea. He meets Megan, a woman who has see the bad side of a man and she will not let any man hurt her again. While Megan fights for Kyle, they both began to have feelings for each other. Can the good girl tame the bad boy? Will Tyler be able to protect her when her ex-boyfriend shows up after getting out of prison? Can Tyler show everyone that he has changed and for the better? I think this story was harder to read because of the pain that both Megan and Kyle has gone through. I loved every minute of it and wish there were more on the way. Yeah L.P. could write about other fighters from Tyler's gym. Yes I love this series and will miss the MMA fighters and there ladies. If you like a great story that has MMA fighters that are all alpha males, strong female leads and loads of best friends that are there for the good and the bad, then you should enjoy this series. **Wicked Reads Review Team**

ARC given for honest review. I loved the story!!!! I am a firm believer in second chances for those that deserve them!!  Kyle made a mess of his life early on costing nearly everything. Fortunately he saw the light and with a strong will changed his life for the better. Megan was also in need of a second chance and together with Kyle they both got one and found each other and true love at the same time. This was a very fitting ending to the series...well done!!!

If you have been keeping up with these books, you know that Kyle was anything but nice. The things he did the the people around him were twisted, sick, and deplorable, but he's now a changed man. Get ready to meet the new Kyle! I was very interested to see how L.P. Dover was going to change this character around. The acts that have been committed by him were nothing short of depraved. True to this author's form she has managed to bring new life to a tainted man. Kyle is trying to be a better person. He has learned from his past mistakes and now has the task of showing everyone, especially his sister, that he's changed. People are not quick to believe that this bad boy is reformed though. The last place anyone would have thought to find him was Tyler's gym. Megan has finally found some piece in life. Having finally put the person terrorizing her away fro awhile, she is slowly learning to breathe with the help of her new friends. One of those friends was not supposed to include the famed bad boy Kyle. If anything he was the person that she should stay away from the most. Little do either of them know that having each other will be a fortunate thing in the future. When the past comes back to haunt one of them, its a race to find out how close to home the past has come. Even with all of the training between the two, a ghost is very hard to nail down. A story that will have you cheering, yelling, and swooning throughout. Kyle's Return was a perfect end to the series that I have come to absolutely love.

The Gloves Off Series by L.P. Dover These books made me want to learn to be a UFC MMA fighter. I think I could lick Gabby in a fair fight. (The is no such thing as a Fair fight) I love L.P. her romance is just mushy enough and her sex is off the charts hot. All her characters are so real I want to run out to the gym to workout with them. So far I count 4 books and 2 novella;s in this series that I have read.  I read them back to back…it was like watching a movie, I didn’t want to miss a thing.  Kyle’s Return: Kyle is back in town and he is looking to make amends. He wants to get back to his roots, fighting.  Megan, is a sweet girl who works at the gym. She believes in him so maybe he really can come home.  I think this is the perfect way to wrap up this series. I still want to beat someone up over the sh*t that happens in this book.

What a great ending to a wonderful series!  I knew Kyle would have to make major changes in order to win a place in my heart, but I wasn't expecting for him to seriously steal a piece of it!  We met Kyle in earlier books in the series and knew he wasn't a nice person.  He was awful and would do anything to win a fight.  When he ends up hurt and loses the use of his legs, he is more determined than ever to right the wrongs he has done.  He realizes that he was wrong in so many ways and wants nothing more than to be a better person.   We also met Megan in the other books and she is the last person I thought of as a  match for Kyle.  However, I can honestly say that they are perfect for each other.  She stand by him and stands up for him when no one else will.  She shows him how to love with all your heart and to let go of the past.  She helps him come to terms with his past and make the hard steps towards redemption.   Just when you thought they would have their HEA, Megan's ex comes back into her life.  He is determined that Megan is his and only his and he will stop at nothing to have her.  However, he doesn't realize that Megan is much stronger than she used to be and will not live in fear of him. When the police hatch a plan to lure her ex out of hiding, will it work?  Will Kyle step back and let the events unfold?  Will Kyle be able to reign in his anger and place the needs of Megan above his own?  In order to find out you will need to read this one, you will not be disappointed. I loved this book from the beginning to the end and I am so happy with the way it ended.  I absolutely love this series and I hate that it has come to an end.  I loved each of the characters and the books and I am sad to see them go.  This book truly capped off everything and left the series in a wonderful place.  Well done, L.P.!  I can't wait to see what you in store for us next!

This is the 5th and final book in L.P. Dover's Gloves Off Series. This series features sexy alpha MMA fighters and is by far one of the best series I've ever had the pleasure of reading. Even though these books could be read as stand alones it is highly recommended that you read them in order. This way you get a better understanding of the characters and what has been going on since the beginning. I will post the reading order at the end of my review to help you know the order. What can I say about this book but wow you amazed me with this book. I wasn't sure if you would ever be able to get me to like Kyle after everything he has done to hurt and manipulate the people around him. It's been two years since his last match that ended with him confined to a wheelchair. Things have changed and so has Kyle. He's gotten the use of his legs back and now he wants to show his sister that he isn't the same person that he use to be. To gain her forgiveness he has to first apologize and try and make amends with her friends. Who just so happen to be some of the people he hurt the most. Megan didn't know Kyle before his accident and his decision to change. The only thing she knew about him are the stories she heard and none of them painted him in a good light. In the past Megan was violently abused by her boyfriend and survived it due to help from her friends. Megan vowed to stay away from dangerous guys but Kyle draws her in and she can see the change in him. Things won't be easy between these two. Her friends aren't gonna understand and won't like that she's dating him. Especially due to what has happened in the past to her. Her friends aren't going to be the only problem though. Will Megan and Kyle's relationship be able to survive her friends? Can Kyle earn his sisters forgiveness? What about the other people he's hurt...will they be able to forgive him or is it to late and to much damage? The other problem will test their relationship in many ways. To see exactly what this is gonna do to them and how it will affect them then you have no choice but to pick up this book and read it to find out. I promise you won't be disappointed in the trip it takes you on. L.P. I'm sad to see these guys go and will miss them. I take comfort in knowing that I can revisit them anytime I want by picking up my kindle and selecting the book to reread. I look forward to seeing what you have for us next. Congrats on another great series and I'm glad that you ended it with Kyle. Correct Reading Order For Books To Get The Full Story: **Second Chance series** Meant for Me (Second Chance series 3) Fighting for Love (Second Chance series 4) **Gloves Off series** A Fighter's Desire Part 1 (Prequel to Ryley's Revenge novella) A Fighter's Desire Part 2 (Prequel to Tyler's Undoing novella) Tyler's Undoing (Gloves Off series) Ryley's Revenge (Gloves Off series) Paxton's Promise (Gloves Off series) Winter's Kiss (novella) Camden's Redemption (Gloves Off series)

Kyle's Return was a fabulous, wonderful and exciting conclusion to the Gloves Off series.  I think we all pretty much were waiting on Kyle's book.  I know I was was.  Kyle has been such a villain so it was nice to see him slowly change and realize all the things he lost.  So in this book, Kyle seeks forgiveness from everyone he has hurt especially his own sister.  But also he protects and falls in love with the one person who gives him a chance and sees past everything he has done. Megan has had a rough time with her ex.  She has done everything in her power to get away from him.  But if he can't have her, no one can.  I love what a kick butt character Megan is.  She has changed so much.  Megan went from letting her ex beat on her to finally kicking his butt and sticking up for herself.  She is no longer a weak person.  I hated Kyle through the whole series, but then fell in love with him in this book.  He really has changed after realizing how much he lost.  He struggled to find his way, but with Megan believing in him, he found it.  He never gave up. Kyle's Return was completely epic!!!!  I loved this book so much but I am so sad to see this series end.  I feel like I have been reading about these fighters for a long time and I don't want to let them go.  LP did a fantastic job on creating and developing characters that everyone can't help but fall in love with including Kyle.  I can't wait to see what LP has in store for us next!!!

I’m sad that this is the last book of the Gloves Off series, first of all. I have grown very fond of all the characters in these stories, especially my fighters! I won’t have anyone’s stories to look forward to anymore. Everyone is done! As always, L.P. Dover did a great job giving Kyle a redemption story after all the evil things he did when he was evil, same as Camden, but worse than Camden, well maybe equally as bad. The last time we heard anything of Kyle he was confined to a wheelchair, the results of his last fight with Tyler Rushing! Word was he was never going to be able to walk again. When we come around back to Kyle this time, he beat those odds and has full use of his legs again. He’s head back to the people that he was once close to in order to apologize for all the wrong he did and ask for their forgiveness. The first place he goes to is to find his sister Kacey at Tyler’s gym, when he meets Megan. Megan is the woman that Tyler helped out against her ex when he tried to harm her outside of an establishment. Since their encounter, Tyler began teaching her how to defend herself in order to protect herself from her ex or any other person could harm her again without a fight. This lead to Tyler hiring her to work in the gym and teach other women self defense. Megan the place she called home with her ex in order to get away from him, so that when he was released from jail he wouldn’t be able to find her and she could have a second chance at life and start fresh. So far everything has been working out for her and she isn’t the same frail person she once was during that terrible time in her life. In walks Kyle Andrews. She knows all about him and from the very beginning she gives him a hard time, but at the same time she is the ONLY person to talk to Kyle and treat him as a person. Kyle is intrigued with Megan immediately because of the way she treats him and actually speaks to him unlike everyone else. Megan, at first doesn’t really want anything to do with Kyle Andrews, but at the same time she wasn’t around to know the person he was when he hurt so many people, but she can still tell that he isn’t that same person anymore either and gives him the benefit of the doubt. Slowly the two of them get to know more about each other and the more they hang out at the gym the closer they become. Megan begins to help Kyle on his journey of forgiveness. All seems to be going well until one night someone tries to run them off the road. Things become tense and test the strength of their bond in more ways than one. Some parts of the story and mystery where predictable, but still consisted of twists that you would not see coming. What I love about the story is that Kacey is a strong independent woman that has changed from the person she was in the past to a new butterfly for her future. Instead of letting her past hunt her and bring her down, she’s embracing the new stronger and hopes to help other woman survive such possessive men. Kyle isn’t 100% positive he will be able receive forgiveness from everyone, but his main focus is his sister Kacey the only family he as left. L.P. Dover always seems to make her heroine’s very strong and independent women and I admire that because not all women are damsels in distress, plus you need those type characters that can stand up against the MMA fighters in the series. I’m sad to see the series end, but I had a fun ride along the way from beginning to end!

LP Dover you are a ROCKSTAR! You have once again made your MMA boys on the top of my BBF list. “Kyle’s Return” is the final installment of the Glove’s Off Series and Dover ended it perfectly. I realllllllly did not like Kyle from the previous books. He was arrogant and down right nasty. I am extremely happy that he did get his own book to redeem himself and show us what an remarkable guy he can be. Megan is such a spit fire and I absolutely adored her. She has been dealt a crappy hand by her abusive ex, but she turned that around and learned how to defend herself. She is sarcastic, witty and fun. I loved how she took no BS from Kyle, but she did manage to see for herself how he has changed for the better. Their sexy scenes were HOT…HOT…HOT…..and the fact that Kyle wants nothing more than to protect her when her ex comes back in the picture is pure pantie melting HOT! But what happens when Kyle’s family and friends are not so quick to forgive and forget? Will he be able to prove to everyone, he once thought of as family, that he is a changed man? Will Kyle be able to protect Megan from the one thing she fears, her ex? Dover does an excellent job in making sure that we, the readers, forgive Kyle for the man he was in prior books. I loved seeing all the other characters together one final time and I adore each and everyone of them. Well done Ms. Dover….I found you through your MMA boys and have been your #1 FANGIRL since.

Megan has known violence and has survived it with the help of her friends. But it is Kyle Andrews that brings her back to life. Megan doesn't know why he makes her feel things that she hasn't felt since before Alex, her psychotic ex entered her life. She promised to steer clear of dangerous men, but she gives into Kyle Andrews pull on her.  Kyle Andrews has a bad rep, why? Because he is known for being the biggest manipulator, a guy who’ll do anything to get what he wants. He has sabotaged his competitors to get the win. His last fight left him wounded, and his UFC career came to a close. He lost everything that meant anything to him, but now he’s determined to earn his way back into the fold.       Megan knows that all her friends hates Kyle. But she can't hate him, he is different now and she's living in the now. Its a lot harder than she thought to love a hated man. Everywhere they go danger lurks. Kyle thinks it  from people who want revenge for his past acts. But Megan is starting to think otherwise.  Could it be that her psychotic ex, Alex found her?  Will Kyle get the forgiveness he seeks? Who is behind the attacks against Megan and Kyle?  I have read all the books in this series and they are all amazing! I loved them. This one took a little to get  into because I remember all the havoc  Kyle Andrews caused and I am just like all Megan's friends.  I am not ready to forgiven and forget. But Megan I love her from the very beginning and I hope Kyle has changed for her sake. I do love how Kyle is with Megan. I like seeing his softer side. He shows us he is sweet and kind to her. Megan's love changes Kyle's black heart to red. There is amazing transformation with Kyle, he is a changed man. I love that the writer can turn an hated character to someone who reader end up  liking. I really like Kyle now and I hope you'll see the transformation and learn to love him.       There are also a number of our favorite characters in this book that we get a brief update on them within this story. I love that all the books are connected and that each one is a little later in the timeline.   L.P. Dover is amazing that connecting each book and making it all fit and make sense.  I also love how each character elvoves within the books.
