Blog Tour for The Gloves Off Series by L.P Dover

Title: The Gloves Off Series
Author: L.P. Dover
Genre: Adult, Contemporary Sports Romance

A Fighter's Desire is an introductory prequel novella to the Gloves Off series. If you love sexy, MMA fighters you don't want to miss out on the hardcore, tap out action with my twins, Ryley and Camden. They're ready to get down and dirty on the mat.** The conclusion to their stories will be coming soon in their full length novels.

Two is always better than one.

What would you do if you were given the chance to spend the night with not one, but two fighters? Would you do it? Could you open yourself up to the pleasures they offered and do exactly what they said in order to pass on to the next round?
It was common knowledge that 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. The only problem was that if you didn’t pass their test on the first night, then you didn’t proceed to the next round. They loved a good fight, and that's what they got when they met Ashleigh Warren.

Ashleigh knew what was going to happen when the twins approached her with a proposition, and needless to say, she knew exactly how to handle them … or so she thought. The rules had changed, and in order to get them both she had to first spend one night with each and last until they were done with her. It was a proposition she couldn’t refuse, but she knew it wouldn’t be easy to win. However, it was one that she was going to enjoy.

Well I'm a sucker for books about Alpha male fighters. In this novella you not only get one but two hotties. Camden and Ryley are MMA fighters who happen to be twin brothers.These brothers are known to share everything and that includes their women.  Camden and Ryley set their sites on Ashleigh. The brother's approach Ashleigh with a proposition she cant refuse. I really think Ryley will be my favorite in this fighters series . I love him and Ashleigh together I think they have great chemistry, their a perfect match. This is my first book from this author and I'm really digging it. The story right away had my attention, its and addictive read. I think the author did an amazing job, it was not so predicable. I like a book that throws me off. I cant wait to see where this story goes and what happens because honestly I'm sitting here like "what just happened" . L.P. Dover ends the novella keeping you wanting more. This is an easy 4 stars.


Second installment - prequel novella to the Gloves Off series. This story follows several of my fighters but focuses on one, Tyler Rushing, who not only fights in the ring, but fights against his desire for the one girl he can't have. Check out the conclusion to his story in Tyler's Undoing.

When you’re told to stay away from someone or something it only drives the urge to go after it more. In this case, that was exactly what happened. For years, Gabriella Reynolds—younger sister of MMA’s Heavyweight Champion, Matt Reynolds—was warned by him to stay away from his fighter friends; she deserved better and they would only break her heart.

Did she listen? Yes, for a while, but temptation can only consume you so much until you fall into its trap. There’s a certain fighter she’s interested in, and it just so happens that he’s her brother’s best friend, the only one that is completely off limits to her. However, she’s not the only one fighting temptation. Tyler Rushing can’t deny his attraction to her, but he’s afraid she’ll want more and he can’t give that to her. When he finds out that’s not the case … everything changes.

Secrets can be dangerous, but they can also be thrilling and intense. Gabriella and Tyler have no choice but to keep their time together a secret … and it’s a secret that’ll stay with them forever.

She was what he wanted … but she was also his undoing.

Through mutual understanding, Tyler’s secret affair with Gabriella Reynolds has come to an end. It was a decision that not only saved their friendship, but it was one that would change Tyler Rushing’s life forever.

For the past couple of years, Tyler was known as being one of the UFC’s most memorable and sexy heavyweight fighters. Now he has the chance to win the title and claim the fame he so deserves. Having all the women he wanted was the highlight of his days; at least until Kacey Andrews walked through the door of his gym. He couldn’t keep his eyes off of her; there was an innocence about her that sparked his interest and he wasn’t going to give up until he had her. Little did he know that Kacey Andrews wasn’t a stranger … she was part of his world; he just didn’t know it. It was a secret she’d worked hard to keep hidden.

Kacey spent years trying to get away from the fighting world, away from the man who was hated among the MMA elite … her brother, Kyle Andrews. Unfortunately, she was brought back into it when Tyler’s relentless battle for her heart won her over, drawing her in. The only problem is that secrets never stay buried forever. In the end, Tyler will have a decision to make, and it’s one that could possibly destroy his and Kacey’s life … forever.

Tyler being a well known fighter in the UFC world, he has everything going for him. In the story Tyler is a bit of a ladies man, he has women throwing themselves at him all the time. I mean what women doesn't throw themselves at a hot sexy fighter. One day while at his gym walks in Kacey and Tyler was instantly pulled in by her beauty and innocence. Tyler is determined to do what it takes to own Kasey. Little did Tyler know that Kasey wanted nothing to do with his world. She spent a long time trying to avoid the fighting life . See Kasey's brother was also a fighter. Kasey's brother gave the book the perfect amount of drama and intensity. I loved how his character loved to stir things up. Even though Kasey refused to get caught up in that life,like I said who can resist a hot sexy fighter, no one and Kasey is no exception.

I really enjoyed this book. Stories with male fighters are on my top 5 favorite books to read.
I think this author gives you enough drama and romance to keep you wanting more. This is my first book by L.P. Dover and it wont be my last, I actually can not wait to get into the other books to this series. I give this Tyler's Undoing 4 star's.


UFC Middleweight fighter, Ryley Jameson, swore it would never happen again. He was done with his ex, and over the pain she’d inflicted when she left him. At least, that’s what he tells people. Maybe if he says it enough, he’ll begin to believe it himself.

Regretting her decision to let Ryley go, Ashleigh Warren comes back into town and confronts him. Holding only one secret back, she puts the rest on the line and asks for a second chance. Too bad he’s not going to let her off easy.

Camden Jameson loves his twin brother, but his jealousy runs deep. They may be identical in looks, but that’s where the similarities end. When Ashleigh comes back into Ryley’s life, Camden has the perfect opportunity for revenge. Two birds, one stone. A journey to the Dark Side affects them all, but only one will truly get their revenge. Only one will come out on top.

5 Stars
This is such a good book. Its about second chances, jealousy and hearts being broken.

Ryley's heart was ripped out when his ex Ashleigh ends their relationship. He tries to convince himself he's over her and all the pain she inflicted on him but his heart his broken.
Ashleigh tells herself she has done the right thing by breaking it off but soon realizes she has made a big mistake. Ashleigh will try everything to win back Ryley's heart. Ryley of course does not make it easy for her. She broke his heart and he was going to make her feel every bit of hurt he felt.
So you think this is all about love, well yes and no. Like I said there is jealousy and that is where Ryley's brother comes in Camden.

Take a chance on this book I promise you will not be disappointed. The author did a fantastic job writing this story I honestly felt like I connected with the characters. I felt the pain Ryley was experiencing and how hurt he was. I wanted Ashleigh to hurt just like he did but then I felt bad for her. I'll say it again this is a great book. I rate this book 5 stars.


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?

5 stars
Another job well done.

It seems I may have read out of order with this series a bit but its okay. I absolutely  loved Paxton's Promise.

Talk about romance and hot passion. The author writes her stories as if you were right in the room with the characters. Honestly I didn't think I would love a character more then Ryley but Paxton is hot. He is now my favorite alpha fighter in this series.
Like with all of the books from this series you get suspense, revenge, drama and hot romance . This book was definitely a page tuner. I loved Paxton's and Gaby's chemistry together. So yes READ THIS BOOK! It's so good .
I will rate this book 5 stars, well deserved.

4 stars

This story was a bit different from the other books in this series but in a good way.

Camden James saw his life as second best to his brother. He never felt as good has his twin. As a results he grew jealous and did things that were unforgivable . Camden lived on the Dark side Side, but like some he had a change of heart and wanted to redeem himself but it was harder then he thought . Not only had Camden's life come crashing down he was now on the run.

Brookelyn was an undercover agent who was assigned to protect Camden. Brookelyn had always kept her distance but one turn of events caused her to get closer. Just like every typical love story once the male and female character sets eyes on each other there are instant sparks. The thing with Brookelyn she also has a past.

Will Camden and Brookelyn be what each other needs to wash away their past?

This story explained Camden so well. I didn't get his jealously in Ryley's book but now I do. I did enjoy this book but it was not one of my favorites. I'm not sure if it is because I still have a book hangover from Ryley's story, but I would recommend this book. It is suspenseful, the right amount of humor and lets not forget romance. The author has done a fantastic job with telling each characters story and she gives you insight to both POV's. Just because Camden's Redemption was not a favorite I am still rating this book 4 stars because the story still held my attention a was well written.
