Paxton’s Promise by L.P. Dover Blog Tour

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?

“So we meet again,” he said simply. For a moment, his sea green eyes flustered me like they did every time I saw him. This time, I couldn’t let that happen.

Throwing open the door, I rolled my eyes and ventured back into the living room. He was going to come in anyway, there was no reason to stop him. “It appears so,” I grumbled. “I was wishing you’d forget about me. I guess the hundred pennies I threw in that well didn’t work.”

The door shut and I could hear him chuckle. “Sorry, love. No wish is going to get you out of our agreement. I gave you a week of freedom, but now your time’s up. You’re not thinking of backing out are you?” Instead of sitting beside me on the couch, he sat in the chair across from me, his gaze boring straight into mine.

“No. I made a promise and I’m going to keep it. I always keep my promises.”

“And the same goes for me,” he murmured, voice smooth and deep. “Now, how ‘bout we get down to business?” My heart sped up at the thought and a small smirk splayed across his lips.

“Fine,” I answered, clearing my throat. “I’m sure it’s nothing I can’t handle.”

The deep chuckle in his chest rumbled all the way down to my clit. “Oh, we’ll see about that, sunshine. First, I need to know. What’s the status with you and the douchebag baseball player?”

I crossed my arms over my chest. “I don’t think that’s any of your business.”

“It is now, considering for the next month you’re going to be with me and me only. You’re going to have to get rid of him.”

My eyes went wide. “Are you serious? What am I supposed to tell him?”

Nonchalantly, he shrugged. “I don’t give a shit what you tell him, as long as he knows to stay away from you. If he so much as causes a problem, I’m going to extend the month.”

“Don’t you think this is a bit extreme? Wouldn’t a week suffice?”

His expression grew serious. “You obviously have no idea how far out I put my neck on the line for you. I think a month is being very generous.”

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. Somehow Paxton lets her get away with the time they spend together being 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 are MMA fights, more underground fights, strange neighbors and Camden being his usual self. Will Camden help Gabby or will he turn his back on her? Will she be able to protect Paxton? Can Paxton keep his 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.

This is part of a series of MMA stories, which all interlink, so although it is an excellent story in its own right, I would recommend that you read the series in order.

In the last book we discovered more about Paxton, but definitely not enough. His interest in Gabby was as disturbing as it was exciting. Now pretty much everything is laid bare – the bad, the good, and the utterly delicious. The plot is clever, and the twist was well executed, and suspenseful. The hotness quotient is as high as with all the others, as is the dedication to MMA, and its lifestyle. Great stuff, and very happy to know that Camden is the next character to get his story told.

I couldn't wait to get my hands on Paxton's book. We've seen glimpses of him throughout the series, him being part of Kyle's crew, him taunting Gabby, but never what was his true self. Paxton has a past, a past that involves the Dark Side. He's done things he's not proud of but he did them with good intentions. He was never the guy everyone thought he was. He knows what he wants and he will do whatever he needs to get it. He wants Gabby.

After Pax makes his terms clear, she stays with him for a month. Being that close can she fight the feelings she has for him? When she finds out she is the obsession of Rage she has to do something she never thought she would. Finding an unlikely ally, can she destroy Rage?

I love this series. I can't wait for Camden's story, there is so much to him I can't wait to find out who he really is!
