** A STEAMY, romantic suspense (STANDALONE) novel by NEW YORK TIMES and USA TODAY Bestselling author, L.P. Dover. If you love strong and sexy MMA fighters then this book is definitely for you.**

Fighting for someone's heart is more challenging than fighting for a title.

For a time, many years ago, love had grown, love was made, and in the end ... love was lost. The decision to leave had been the worst mistake Shelby Dawson could have ever made. However, at the time--ten years ago--she felt her secret needed to stay hidden, even if it broke her heart and the heart of the man she loved. Back then, he was all hers and she was all his, but now things have changed and he isn't the same guy she knew.

He happens to be the well-known MMA Heavyweight champion and famous bad boy, Matt 'The Destroyer' Reynolds, who once before struggled to help his family pay the bills. Now, he has money flowing with each undefeated win and an insurmountable number of women filling his bed. Everything is perfect for the illustrious fighter, until one day it all changes. In walks the girl from his past, the same girl who promised to stick by him but left and never looked back.

Their second chance to make things right will not come easy, for when one mistake is made an unwelcome consequence soon follows. Someone out there wants to rip them apart and they won't stop until Matt and Shelby pay the ultimate price ... their love.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Loved it!! 13. April 2014
Von Nina
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I loved this story!! It is so captivating and beautifully written that I found myself slowing down my reading pace because I just did not want this story to end – that is something that rarely happened to me before! So yes, I fell in love with Matt and Shelby just as much as I did with Mason and Claire.

We first met Matt Reynolds in MEANT FOR ME, which is Mason’s and Claire’s story. He is a cocky successful MMA fighter with bad boy and man-whore tendencies back then, still I was hoping that L.P. would write his story next. No surprise I freaked a bit after finding out that Fighting for Love would be all about him!!

Being the MMA champion Matt has it all: Fame, money and more women than he can possibly want. But it wasn’t always that way: He did not come from money and worked hard for a living, taking care of his mother and sister as well. His bright spot was Shelby Dawson, the only woman he ever gave his heart to – until she broke it by walking away.

That was 10 years ago. Now he has made a name for himself and tried to move on, but still he could not overcome his feelings for her.

Shelby left Matt for a reason, thinking she was doing what was best for him, but just like Matt, she could not let go of him and still watched him and his career, which made her suffer even more, putting her decision into question.

When fate throws them back together as Shelby – who is a writer for a famous sports magazine now – has to write an article on MMA champion Matt “The Destroyer” Reynolds, they get a second chance. Their feelings for each other grow stronger again the longer they are working with each other, but a jealous MMA rival who stops at nothing does not make their reunion that easy.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Überzogen, unrealistisch und sehr flach 8. April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Ich hab ja einen Faible für Bücher mit MMA Fightern.
Die Bewertung war vorab auch nicht so schlecht, schwupp habe ich zugeschlagen.
Leider, leider.. das Buch erfüllt keinerlei Erwartung.

Spoiler !

Shelby ist Reporterin/Journalistin für ein Sportsmagazin und berichtet hier jeden Monat exklusiv in einem prominentem, mehrseitigem Feature über einen Sportler. Wie es der Zufall will, ist diesmal der MMA Kämpfer Matt an der Reihe. Jener Matt, den sie vor einigen Jahren verlassen hat. Ihre erste und einzige grosse Liebe.

Verlassen hat sie ihn, weil sie der Meinung war, er wäre ohne sie besser dran, da sie ungewollt schwanger wurde, was sie ihm nie sagte. Das Kind hat nicht überlebt, sie psychisch total am Ende erleidet seinerzeit einen Zusammenbruch und wird anschliessend von ihren zwei besten Freunden wieder aufgepäppelt. Ihr schwuler Freund Jace wohnt sogar immer noch bei ihr.

Nun also treffen Shelby und Matt wieder aufeinander - und was soll ich sagen: alles gleich wieder wunderbar, da gibt's keine Vorwürfe, dass sie ihn verlassen hat, kein Gezicke, die Jahre der Trennung vergessen, alles gleich wieder wonderful. Und da fängt das Buch an, zu nerven. Allein diese Tatsache ist schon unglaubwürdig.

Aber, es kommt noch besser: Shelby hatte kurz vor dem Wiedersehen mit Matt einen anderen Mann kennengelernt und sich ihm angenähert - nun stellt sich raus, dass das ein Konkurrent von Matt ist, der "perfide" geplant hatte, sich an Shelby ranzumachen, um mit kompromittierenden Fotos Matt psychisch zu verletzen und ihn somit zu schwächen. Unfassbar an den Haaren herbeigezogen.

5.0 von 5 Sternen L.P. Shines in this book! 11. März 2014
Von Jenjen0130 - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
Just when I thought L.P. couldn't get any better, she does. We first meet Matt in her last book Meant For Me, and I was drawn to him back then. I was so excited to learn more about this hot-shot bad boy. I was not disappointed. Matt comes off as the playboy of the MMA. He has a different woman in his dressing room before AND after the fight. He's tough and closed off to anyone who doesn't know him. Those that do, know the truth.
Shelby is a successful writer for one of the most premier sports magazines. She loves her job, but is still struggling with the aftermath of a decision and a tragedy from 10 years ago. A decision that cost her the love of her life. Matt.
When Shelby is assigned to do a feature on Matt, she doesn't think she can face him, knowing she broke his heart and has a secret he will never forgive her for.
As the two of them begin to work together, they are determined to try to put their past behind them, and just move forward. But someone else wants to keep them apart.
This book is full of love. You know as soon as Matt and Shelby see each other for the first time again that feelings remain. The chemistry is still just as strong. While they work to move forward, together they vow not to let whatever, whoever is trying to come between them do that. There's suspense, a couple of "oh crap I didn't see that coming" moments, and of course a lot of steamy sex. Above all, Matt and Shelby prove that if you're willing to fight for what you want, you'll win.

Romantic Suspense lovers need to add this to your TBR. I'm anxious for her next book! I can't wait to see who we get to know next!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Boxing and Love, an awesome sexy match 11. März 2014
Von Lulu Vega - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This story is amazing, I love Matt and Shelby. He's this bad boy, sexy boxer and she's a beautiful writer and when she finds out who her next story assignment is, it's very hard to believe, cause after all this time, she's still in love. I think it's sweet how they both find each other again after so many years and they find themselves falling back in love. Well, more like they never stopped loving each other and now they are willing to fight against everything to be together. They both have a past that hunts them, but they have each other to go through it all. A hot, sexy and beautifully written story that is a must read..... ;)

5.0 von 5 Sternen This book had me laughing, crying, smiling, mad-as-heck and fanning my face! 15. März 2014
Von Katrina - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
As you can guess, all of these books are about second chances, so the prologue starts off ten-years prior to give the reader a little snippet of the past. Shelby is a teenager getting ready to go to Berkley and makes a decision to end things with her boyfriend, Matt, of five years. She has her reasons, and in the prologue, it gives the reader a strong hint as to why that happened. The break-up and other events after are hard on her and, luckily, she has two best friends, Jace and Lexi, to get her through these hard times.

Fast forward to the present, Shelby is now working for a nationally popular sports magazine penning articles under another name. Life is good, except, she hasn't moved on, she is still in love with Matt, but she knows she must, so she will make an effort. Then she gets word she is going to be writing an article on none other than the hometown-boy-turned-MMA-fighter she never thought she would see again, Matt.
Matt is all alpha you-don't-touch-my-woman male, but he can reign that in when he has to, for the most part, and of course, hot-as-h*ll, right? Of course he is. He was heartbroken when Shelby broke up with him ten-years ago after being together for five years and so many "firsts." Back then, he had to be the man in the family after his dad said "see ya" to his family and that left Matt helping support a mom and sister his last few years of high school. Now, he is a successful MMA fighter, with money and, except for the past six months, all the women his bed could handle, just not his heart, because, you guessed it: he's still in love with Shel's.

Ms. Dover pulled my heartstrings on this one. It kept my interest, it had funny moments, light suspense and I even wanted to pull a few MMA moves on a few obnoxious characters. This book also had some heat! Matt has a hot, naughty mouth! He knows what he wants, how to tell his girl and then carry it out! This book had me laughing, crying, smiling, mad-as-h*ll and fanning my face. Ms. Dover is very good with her depiction in her scenes. You can "see" what is going on and feel the emotions in each scene. In one part of the book, we get to read a character's journals and I cried and didn't even realize it for a while. I know part of it was because I had lived part of what was going on, so what was in those journals was the exact feelings I had felt. Ms. Dover got those feelings down well.

One thing that stood out to me that bothered me just a little was when she used the term "fifty shades of f*©ked-up." Yeah, that should have been left with the original books and author and not borrowed for this book. Be original, I say. I was glad to see she didn't go with the cliché "I needed" which is so overused in novels. I would say 99% of adult novels have that in there, but I digress, so kudos to her for not using that one. The only other thing that came to mind when I first started reading this book was that it sounded real similar to the primes of another book about a writer and a rockstar that I read several months ago. Originality comes to mind again. However, the storyline was different enough that it was nothing like the writer/rockstar book I read, so even though they both met again and the writers had to write articles about childhood boyfriends, everything else was VERY different.

In this book, we get to know Lexi and Jace very well. While Lexi is engaged, Jace isn't. We NEED more of Jace's story! I don't know if it would fit into this series, but, Ms. Dover, you have my interest piqued...just sayin'. *wink wink* I know there is a story there! Have Mercy! Now that was original!

This is the second book of the Second Chances series that I have read. These are all standalone novels, so I had no problems in reading book 1 and then skipping to book 4. I liked both books very much. If you like boxer/fighter books with lots of love, you will like this. Intercepting Love, Book 5 of Second Chances series is due May 2014 and is Cooper's story, so I know that isn't Jace's. Oh well, I still have hope.

Rating: 4.5 Stars (Only because of some originality issues but the book is worth reading!)

Von Lindsay Lou - Veröffentlicht auf

I enjoyed reading this book! My only hesitation is when they see each other again, they didn't talk about the past but moved right into a serious relationship! In a way I can see why but it would have been nice to see them re-establish their connection!! Overall though, I really loved this book! found it difficult to put it down!

3.0 von 5 Sternen ✨A charged and steamy fight for a seductive second chance!✨ 14. März 2014
Von Ripe for Reader - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
My rating: 3 of 5 ⭐️

Ten years ago Shelby though she was making the right decision in setting free the man she loved so he could pursue his dreams. Slight miscalculation on her part was that she never bothered asking him what he wanted. Over the years she had much cause to regret that decision, and even after all this time had not been able to completely let go. Of course, just as Shelby is getting ready to take that first step, who else but the source of her years of pining would make a sudden appearance in her life. But now in the form of subject matter for an article she has just been assigned to write on the MMA Heavyweight Champion, "The Destroyer".

Years of hard work and dedicated training have paid of for Matt Reynolds, and now that he has reigned in his 'wilder' side, he hopes he can settle into a steadier groove after winning the championship. He had come from very little, but had managed to make something of himself, it was time to treasure that. When his manager suggested an article for a renowned fitness publication would help boost his image, Matt didn't hesitate a moment. That is, until he was introduced to the writer of said article..... a woman he had tried hard to forget for years, the same woman who he had never been able to completely remove from his heart.

To say their unexpected reunion was a surprise is an understatement. Both Matt and Shelby are shaken by the encounter, and although Shelby runs, this time Matt is not going to let her get away easily. Even though it's been years, he still wants some answers and if possible a look to see if there is anything left between them. When cornered, Shelby tries to explain her reasons for leaving back then, although she still doesn't share everything with him. A decision she may come to regret.

When a long-time nemesis gets a lead on some damaging information, he does not hesitate to try and use it to drive a wedge between Matt and Shelby and threatens to break apart what has only just been rediscovered....


The story is not unfamiliar...... rejected years ago only to find each other again with an opportunity to clear up any remaining misunderstandings, leaving out one crucial detail that threatens to end the blissful reunion yet a second time around!
This particular version made a bit more interesting with the addition of a competitive nemesis of our hero, who is known to stoop low to shake up his opponents. Low enough to dig up dirt as old as ten years down memory lane....

Shelby thought she did good by letting Matt go to pursue his dream, and for the life of me, I have never met an 18-year old who has not thought of herself long enough to come to that conclusion...... Call me a cynic.... OR..... call me a mother of four (now adult) children, feet solidly planted on terra firma, knowing that unless the girl is a veritable saint, there isn't an 18-year old female in love, in her particular situation, who could bring herself to be that self-sacrificing. If she had had any hardships in her life before that....... any hard knocks to overcome....any indication at all that she had needed to grow up at a young age due to trauma of some sort, I might have bought into the extreme maturity at a naturally selfish age. As it is......nah.

Matt's reaction back then is far more character and age appropriate: Pissed off, heated, proud, all of those things and more. Flipping the bird at her and the rest of the world, by working his ass off to get to where he wanted to go and living it up as if he isn't hurting every step of the way. Now that makes much more sense to me. But then, Matt baffles me as well! He takes one look at her after ten years and basically decides that whatever it was is forgiven, and hey.....let's try this again. For a guy who says 'he has though about her at times over the years', he sure says "I never stopped loving you" awful quick!!

Needless to say, I have a bit of an issue with the credibility of the crux of the story, BUT that is not to say I don't like it..... because I do. I actually enjoyed reading this book. In part it was the MMA scene, which is always interesting, and also the interaction between Shelby and Matt. Despite the way they came together, their effect on each other is very tangible. And I don't just mean the scalding chemistry. They have an actual connection that can be sensed in the way Shelby can hold back the instinctive violence in Matt that wants to come out, and Matt is able to ground Shelby with a simple touch or word.

That right there, is the result of a piece of fine intuitive writing on the part of L.P. Dover. She must have had a strong sense of who she needed her characters to be, to be able to tie them together so well. Not only that, but she was able to translate that into words and onto the reader. Well done!

✨A charged and steamy fight for a seductive second chance!✨
