Ryley’s Revenge by L.P. Dover Blog Tour

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 feels the true sting of revenge.

Smile fading, Camden whipped off his sunglasses and stood, glaring straight at me. For years, it was like looking at a mirror when my brother was around. Now, I could barely tell who he was.

“You want to talk about heading down the wrong path? Okay, let’s do this. What about you? The last thing you need to do is get caught up with that bitch again. Did you forget that she left you for someone else? I’m trying to help you, brother.” His arms flew out to the sides. “You fucked her, she fucked you over . . . now move on.”

“Where’s my phone?” I asked, stressing each word.

Camden huffed and pointed toward the house. “It’s in your room. I’m warning you, don’t get involved with her.”

At first, I thought maybe he was trying to protect me, but looking into his calculating blue eyes, that wasn’t it at all. He had seriously turned into someone else. “And I’m warning you,” I snarled, standing nose to nose with him. He didn’t back down and I sure as hell wasn’t going to either. “Stay out of my life and leave Ashleigh alone. I don’t want to see or hear about you being anywhere near her. You got that?”

“So that’s it. You’re taking her back?” he asked, sounding disgusted.

“That’s none of your business.” Turning around, I stormed toward the house and yelled over my shoulder. “Just stay away from her!”

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

Ryley wants revenge. He wants Ashleigh to suffer just as he suffered when she left him for Colin. Now that she realizes what a mistake she made, she wants him back. Will she convince him that she was scared and she has always loved him? Can he let her back in without getting hurt again? And what the h*ll is Camden's problem? There is a lot of jealousy, pain, hurt and a perfect opportunity of revenge or so Camden thinks. Camden wants Ryley and Ashleigh to be over for good and he wants to knock Ryley down a few notches. When Camden challenges Ryley to a fight, it will take a trip to the dark side, but which one will come out on top? I fell in love with Ryley in the very first book and he is still my favorite. Can't wait for Paxton's Promise due out the end of December. If you love MMA and a great story or series, then this one is for you.

This is the third in the series (one being a novel in two parts) and although could be read as a standalone, a lot of the nuance and back-story would be lost, so I don't recommend it.

In the last couple of books we have come to know the characters quite well, and it was inevitable that Ryley would clash with his twin sometime soon. That it would be over Ashley Warren makes this a very interesting read. I was frustrated with her behaviour at times, but it was necessary for the plot to unfold. That we get to see more of the Dark Side is a stark reminder of the seedier side of fighting that has been referred to in the past. Some of the fights had me cringing, and some of the passionate moments had me reaching for a fan! Overall I found it to be an entertaining story with a good mix of drama and passion.

I'm very much looking forward to Paxton's story, which is released at the end of Dec '14.

Ryley's Revenge, is a continuation of Ryley and Ashleigh's story which started in A Fighter's Desire <- a must read!!

Ryley fell in love and Ashleigh chose the other guy in her life, Colin. She moves to Aspen, back to her family, to clear her head. Leaving Vegas and Ryley behind she tries to be happy but Ryley is a constant on her mind.

Ryley goes back to his womanizing ways when Ashleigh chooses Colin over him. He fell hard for Ashleigh and for her to walk away hurt Ryley deep. Can he ever move on?

Things change when she moves back to Vegas. Ryley's twin brother, Camden still isn't over the humiliation he suffered at Ashleigh's hands. He wants her to pay for what she did. Will Ryley let Camden's hatred of Ashleigh stop his true feelings for her?

Ms. Dover does it again with this one! She has created such a great world to fall into, the fighters, the suspense, and the angst are all so emotional. I love the journey she takes me on. At this point I don't think I could pick a favorite character, I am so invested in them all. I can't wait to see what lies ahead for Pax and Gabriella!
