Overview

Paxton's Promise by L. P. Dover, Mae I Design

**Danger lurks behind every corner in this STEAMY, romantic suspense novel by New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author, L.P. DOVER. Find out what happens in the highly anticipated conclusion to Paxton's story.**

She hates him, yet she can't get him out of her mind.

Female Bantamweight fighter, Gabriella Reynolds, has a bad habit of falling for forbidden fighters. Enter Paxton Emerson. He's tall, tattooed, and the current UFC Light Heavyweight Champion. Everyone wants a piece of him, and he only has eyes for her. Through no choice of her own, she's fallen in his debt and he's now demanding payment. Too bad it doesn't involve currency. Gabby's decision to fulfill her promise to him ultimately brings out her true feelings, but also spurs the unwanted attention of another.

Rage's fixation on his newest obsession reaches dangerous levels. Unfortunately, Paxton Emerson has become a roadblock to his end goal and needs to be removed from the equation-by any means necessary.

Gabby will do anything to save Pax, but what happens when she's the one who needs saving?

Paxton's Promise, Gloves Off #3 by L.P. Dover 5 stars I am so in love with this series! Gabriella and Paxton's story is funny, sweet, tender, smoking HOT! Add in all the stubbornness of Gabby, and determination of Pax to fight for what he wants and it had me laughing, sitting with my mouth wide open, fanning myself a little, and wanting to cry. All the creepy characters from the underground world just make your skin crawl, Camden at least shows some hope of being redeemable. I was glad at the end for how everything with Rage worked out, and can't say I feel back about it either. WOW L.P., better and better with every book! I can't wait to read Camden's Redemption!

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) This is Gabriella and Paxton’s story. Gabriella has a debt to pay and Paxton is ready to collect. She has to pay up. The more she hangs out with Paxton the more she likes him but can she trust him? After all he used to be friends with Kyle. Gabriella has to sneak around and also pay another debt to the dark side in order to keep Paxton safe. There is danger at every corner and it’s coming for the both of them. Can they work together and defeat the danger? Or is the danger closer then they think and about to take them both down? Will they submit to the dark side or will they come out the victors? 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 highly recommend this book and can’t wait for the next story in this series.

After reading Ryley's Revenge, I was super eager to get my hands on Paxton's book! Paxton has been on my radar since Tyler's Undoing. He used to run with Kyle's cronies (Boo! Hiss!) so he had been automatically classified as a bad guy. Ohhhh how I love a good "misunderstood bad boy" story! At the end of Ryley's Revenge Gabriella agreed to an undetermined IOU to Paxton in exchange for a huge favor that he did for Gabby and Ashleigh. I won't go into details because technically all of the Gloves Off novels can be read as standalones. The chemistry between Gabriella and Paxton was insane. She wants him bad, but can't get past his involvement with Kyle, who has horrible history with her brother, Matt. Gabby is fiercely loyal and tried so hard to fight her feelings for Paxton, but her expertise is fighting in the ring, not fighting matters of the heart. That's right. Gabriella is also an MMA fighter and is a badass in her own right. The chemistry between Paxton and Gabriella isn't the only plot going on in this book. Someone has their eye on Gabby and will stop at nothing to have her. This book definitely kept me up way past my bedtime to finish it. I couldn't put it down! Not only are there plenty of steamy scenes (omg the pool scene *fans self*) but towards the end I was so wound up and nervous for Paxton and Gabby! j This book definitely is worth 5 stars. LP Dover is officially on my Automatic One-click List!! Paxton....*swoon*

LP Dover has yet to disappoint me with any book that she has written. This new book is no different. Pax is introduced to us in past books but this book is all about him and Gabriella. They have a love hate relationship. Pax loves Gabby, but she hates him, or tries to, because of what and who he had been involved in in the past. In Gabbys mind if you are friends with Kyle then you ate bad news. Gabby owes Paxton a favor for risking his neck for her in the previous book. .. its time to pay up. This might kill her; she has no idea what he has in mind for her when he tells her that the payment for the favor will last a month (longer if she wants it too). Along the way Gabby greys into more trouble trying to protect Paxton. But will it be enough it save him and herself? LP Dover has poured her heart and soul into this latest book and it shows. This book is fantastically written with great words, depth, and detail. This is an amazing story that will have you jumping for joy, crying, and talking to the characters. Of all the stories that i have read i would love to be able to meet the people in this book the most!

Pardon the pun, but MMA stories are a hit or miss for me and this was one was almost a miss because it took awhile to really build up to anything. But even when it did, it wasn't as exciting and attention-catching as some others in the genre are (think Katy Evans' Real, for example). Still, I gave it a chance and despite the slow beginning, it had some good moments. Some of the interactions between Pax and Gabby were fun, but she was a hard one to like. I don't know what it was about her, but I never fully engaged with her. Pax, on the other hand, I wanted to engage with a lot. He was everything I could want in a hero - a sexy, tatted fighter who'd do anything for the woman he loved. I just never really felt the connection between him and Gabby - there wasn't a lot of spark there, and I felt he deserved someone better. That aside, I really loved how he fought for Gabby and was always there when she needed him. These shortcomings aside, it was still a pretty enjoyable book and I'm glad I read it.

I've always had a little bit of a soft spot for Paxton ever since he first appeared in the previous books. So needless to say I was happy LP Dover decided to write his story next! He's always seemed like a pretty loyal guy behind his bad rep. This book show's he's got it all. We even learn he's got an amazing hobby outside of fighting! He's not all gloves and boxers (even though that's a great mental picture). This man fights hard for what and whom he wants and is willing to do whatever it takes to protect what's his! Good thing too, because Gabby has a psycho after her. One whom is a huge part of the Dark Side and is willing to stop at nothing to make her his and he's not happy about Paxton being in the way. Trust NO ONE unless it's your only option. You have everything in this book! Sexy fighters, steamy romance, mystery and suspense! How can you go wrong there?!?!?! Even better? Camden shows a little bit of a redeming side to him in this installment of Gloves off! Maybe there's hope for him yet! There was just enough of him in this book to make me really curious on what woman out there could possibly tame this beast. If any...... Side note... I love how the author always brings in the previous characters just enough to let us know how they are doing and remind us of the friendships they all have! Which reminds me! Gabby's brother! I have a feeling we will be seeing him more, too! WOO HOO!!! Keep those gloves coming off, LP! I'll be here to catch them!

Five stars for L. P. Dover for the second time this month. Paxton's Promise is by far the best in the Gloves Off series yet and leaves you with only two words: female hero. Gabriella Reynolds is the hero of her whole story and is willing to risk her life for the man she loves. Plus she's not afraid to kick some serious butt along the way. This book has everything you could ask for in a novel. A strong minded woman, a man who won't stop until he gets his girl while also doing whatever it takes to keep her safe, and such as even level of strength, will, and passion between both Paxton and Gabriella that ultimately makes them dynamic couple which is the cherry on top of a fantastic read. I can’t wait for more!

L. P. Dover has done it again. After reading the Second chance series I couldn't wait for the Gloves off series and she hasn't disappointed. Paxton's Promise can be read as a stand alone but I would recommend it to be read in order to grow with the characters. I love how she incorporates danger with romance its a nice blend for any reader. Gabby has to stay with Paxton for one month to repay a debt she made without falling for him. Easy Right? Gabby thinks so. As their relationship develops so does the attention of someone very dangerous. Can Gabby handle it herself or will she turn to Paxton for help? Also Camden starts to redeem himself in their story. Can wait for his story to come out. Pick up Paxton's promise today to read another great book.

LP's Gloves Off Series just keeps getting better and better. All the books in the series are stand alones but they do follow a timeline. Which basically means they go in chronological order time wise. You meet up with characters from the previous books and it allows you to know more about them. I do highly recommend reading Ryley's Revenge before reading this book because some of the events that happened in that book result in some of the events that unfold in this story. Paxton Emerson intrigued me from the beginning and this is what I know about him. He's friends with some really nasty and shady people. These are people I would turn around and walk the other way just to avoid. Parts of his past are a real mystery to me and because of who he's friends with I was a bit worried about what I would find. For awhile now he has had a thing for Gabriella Reynolds. After helping Gabriella and her friends out Paxton sees a way to get what he wants. In exchange for helping them out and quite literally putting his life on the line he gets one month alone with Gabriella. She'll move into his house with him and there will be no one else. This is what I know about Gabriella Reynolds. Like Paxton and her brother, she's a MMA fighter. Even though she's tough as nails she proves in this book that she's also very intelligent. She knows when to do the smart thing and not fight. She's attracted to Paxton. He makes her feel things she's never felt before and it won't take nothing for her to hand him her heart. Paxton made a promise to keep Gabriella safe always. Most people would wonder what a female MMA fighter would need protecting from and the answer to that question is a psychotic stalker who just happens to appear out of the woodwork. He's fascinated with Gabriella and wants her all to himself. He will go to drastic measures to make that happen and these measures are not only drastic but sick. He's one twisted individual. If you are a fan of roller coaster rides that are full of romance, suspense, and action then I truly recommend going out and one clicking this book today. It's a phenomenal read that I was unable to put down once I started it. I loved every minute of it and I can't wait for Camden's Redemption to be released so that I can return to LP"s MMA world. LP you did an amazeballs job as always. I definite must read for all book enthusiasts out there.

I'm going to start out by saying I absolutely loved this book. L.P. Dover has done it again! Paxton is one sexy as hell fighter...covered in tattoos, sweat, and grease...he can rev my engine. L.P. Dover again combines her signature style writing with her standalone series that connects all her characters you've grown to love! Paxton's Promise is no different. Throwing in kick ass fight scenes-that give new meaning to bad ass chick..to scorching sex scenes...hot hot hot characters and plot twists that will have you on the edge of your seat around every bend. Bringing together Pax and Gabby who have enough Chemistry to melt the paint off a hot rod. This story shares their journey in finding love while doing what makes them happy. All while trying not to disappoint their loved ones...defeating crazed stalkers...and road blocking the underground....there is nothing these two can't do with their friends-old and new, family and love. This is a must read this winter...that will keep you warm until spring!

What can I say, another great read! I couldn't put this down. I loved reading about Paxton and Gabby- and also enjoyed the little peek into the other fighters worlds as well. It's like the gang was all there :)

I received a copy to read and review for Wicked Reads, so here it is. This one picks up from Ryley's Revenge with Gabby having to pay up to Paxton for his helping Ryley and Ashleigh. She is not wanting to spend any time with him. She knows he wants her and her body wants him but her mind is fighting it. Some how Paxton lets her get away with the time they spend together be two weeks instead of four. Is that a good thing? She will not give in to him, he will have to make the first move. But Paxton is tired of chasing her, so he will let her make the first move. Both are stubborn as the day is long. She follows Paxton one night and sees a blonde hug him and she gets mad. And then Paxton sees her with another guy and he goes all caveman. Can you say jealousy is evil and will make you do things that could be good or bad. For both Gabby and Paxton it brings them together. When someone starts leaving black roses and notes for Gabby, she will do whatever she has to keep those she loves safe. But when that one person she has come to love, Paxton is threatened, she will do what it takes. There is MMA fights, more underground fights, strange neighbors and Camden being him usual self. Will Camden help Gabby or will he turn his back on her? Will she be able to protect Paxton? Can Paxton keep him promises of keeping her safe? This series just gets better and better with each story. I loved this one and can't wait for Camden's Redemption coming early 2015.  **Wicked Reads Review Team**

Paxton's Promise was flat out fan-freaking-tastic!!!!  LP doesn't know how to disappoint.  This has to be one of my all time favorite series.  Each book, I get to see characters in LP's previous books from this series that.  I love being able to see characters again that I loved.  Got some Mason time in this one!!!  Here I go gushing!!!!  Can't help it when I love a book!!!  Anyway, Paxton's Promise was another knockout by the wonderful L.P. Dover.  The way she weaves a story together and sets up each detail to unfold is absolutely fantastic.  I think we all have been waiting on Paxton's and Gabriella's story!!!  I definitely have been!!!  This story was told through both of their POVs.  I love being in my fighters heads!!! All of them!!!   Gabriella was the main female character.  As I said earlier, I was very happy to finally get her story!!!  Gabriella is one of those female characters that we all love and connect with.  She will do anything, and I mean anything, to protect the ones she loves. She has done that several times, but what she did to protect Paxton, showed how much she truly loved him.  She is very fierce and stubborn, but loyal.  Paxton was the main male lead.  In previous books, I could tell he had a thing for Gabby.  In this book, he did what he had to do to get her.  He also did the unbelievable to protect her. Paxton was always a nice guy, but started hanging with the wrong group.  He got out when it got bad, but that reputation stuck with him.  They don't call him the Reaper for nothing.  Camden made an appearance in this book.  Camden still is going down the wrong path, but I seriously think he wants out.  He just doesn't know how to get out.  I can't wait for Camden to get his own story!!!  He is one character that I have been wanting to learn and read about. Paxton's Promise was an enthralling read from start to finish. I could not put this book down once I started.  I absolutely have grown to love these characters.  I have been reading about them for so long it feels like, that they have become my book family.  I never want to say goodbye to them.  I can't wait for LP's next book in The Gloves Off series which will be about Camden!!! Paxton's Promise is a MUST read!!!!  I highly recommend this book to everyone!!!!  Grab it now!!!!

Paxton’s Promise is another hot, steamy read that was well done! This book is about the promise that Gabby made to Paxton because he helped her friends Riley and Ashleigh. I love the interaction between Gabby and Paxton. Paxton is a lovable character who is funny, kind, and very strong. I enjoy that Gabby can hold her own and but she’s willing to let Paxton into her heart. I’ve enjoyed every book from the Gloves Off series. Once you read one in the series, you’ll be hooked!

An ARC was provided for an honest review…. L.P. Dover has done in again……Just when you thought her MMA fighters couldn’t get any better she knocks your socks off with this one. “Paxton’s Promise” is Gabby and Paxton’s story and it picks up where “Ryley’s Revenge” left off….. Gabby has a debt to pay for Pax’s help in getting to Ryley (who in the previous book) was in the world of the “Dark Side”. Gabby agrees to spend 1 month with Paxton, and even though she tries to get out of it, she really doesn’t want to. Paxton is hoping that being with Gabby for a month will change how she feels about him and stop fighting the chemistry they have. Dover does an exceptional job in creating their story as if you are a part of it. We are brought back to the Dark Side, but this time it’s to save Paxton’s life….Yep….that is about all of the spoilers you will get from me. We meet new characters, see some old ones who you just want to hug and go on a rollercoaster ride trying to figure out who is your enemy and who is in your corner. This book will keep you glued until the very end….Heart racing intensity, HOT scenes that will melt your ereader and a couple you will fall in love with. The suspense was literally making my heart pound….. If you haven’t read the previous books I suggest you do so you have the back story of all the secondary characters. I cannot wait for the next book of Camden’s story…..His is going to be the toughest to read. Well Done LP Dover…..You are a ROCKSTAR.

I received this as an ARC reader. Ohhh Paxton. You are a dream. Kind, caring, sexy, family oriented. Gabby didn't want to give in to your charms but when she did she wouldn't regret it. I love how Pax isn't a show off like Ryley. I would have loved to know a bit more about his past and think that was missed. Gabby is always a firecracker like in the others. In this story we got to know her more which I enjoyed. I liked how LP threw Camden in as a good guy this time. Can't wait for his book! Great read. Be sure to read the whole series before reading this one.

L.P. does it again. Great book! Hot MMA fighter, strong leading lady, suspense, twist and turns and HEA. It has it all. Must read. I highly recommend. She even made me soften toward Camden a little. He still has a ways to go. LOVE Paxton and Gabby!
