Craving the Fight by L.P. Dover Blog Tour

Craving the Fight. He craves the fight… but he craves her more. L.P. Dover.

L.P. Dover, the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author who brought you the tantalizing Gloves Off series, presents Gloves Off – Next Generation. This brand-new saga of interconnected standalones unites new characters with beloved originals in dark and sexy stories laced with suspense!

Fame. Money. Status. An infinite number of women standing ringside in hopes of one night with him. These are all the things Carter Reynolds loves about being MMA royalty. As a UFC Heavyweight champion, and the son of the illustrious Matt Reynolds, Carter thinks he has everything he could ever want.

Until he comes face to face with Emma Jameson—the one who got away. The pair are bonded by a secret from their past, one that none in their inner circle can ever know about…

Thanks to her father, Emma is no stranger to the MMA world. UFC Middleweight champion, Ryley Jameson, is known far and wide for his scandalous antics in and out of the ring. His fame put her in the spotlight at a very early age. It even led to her lucrative modeling career and the opportunity for her to travel the world. Now Emma is back with the family of fighters she left behind and quickly discovers a darkness that has wriggled its way into the MMA fold.

Someone demands retribution for the sins of the past, and they’ve chosen to make Emma their first target. Determined to keep her safe, Carter will do whatever it takes to protect her, even if that means putting his life on the line.

As hidden truths are revealed, Carter and Emma find that no one in their circle is safe… and this is only the beginning.

No cheating. No cliffhangers. Just hot, dirty-talking fighters who want to take you down to the mat.

“Now that I’m here I’m not leaving you alone for something to happen to you.”     His protectiveness was what made me fall for him in the first place. “Why do you care?” I breathed.     Carter brushed a thumb over my cheek. “Because I do.”

This one started out with a bang – or a win – and didn't stop there. Carter is the MMA champion again and loving life, the only thing missing is the one that got away. Now he is back home and so is she.

While Emma has a career of her own as a model, the world of MMA is familiar to her and she knows how to fight.

When Emma gets a note in her mailbox, it scares her back home. Back to the circle of family, cousins, friends, and lost love. She doesn't want her parents or uncle to know what is going on and thinks they can handle whatever and whoever sent the note.

This story is filled with suspense, drama, family, love, pain, and a feeling that family is there when you need them. This one starts out with a bang and doesn't let go until the end. I can't wait for the next one.

Craving the Fight is the first book in the Gloves Off – Next Generation series. It is a spin-off from the author's Gloves Off series. It can be read as a standalone without reading the prior series, but it does make more sense if you have read the Gloves Off series first.

When Emma gets a threatening letter in the mail referencing her parents’ past, she knows she needs to go home and let her brothers know. It seems as if that past is coming for revenge. Emma wants to keep the letter from her parents and figure it out on her own. She tries to avoid Carter, her ex, at all costs. They were torn apart by fame but never lost the feelings they had for one another. When Carter finds out about the letter, he will do whatever he needs to to protect Emma. Carter Reynolds was born to be a fighter. It's in his blood, his dad was a famous MMA fighter. It's all he knows how to do and if that means fighting in the underground to protect Emma, that's what he does.

Carter and Emma's chemistry is explosive and undeniable. Craving the Fight is full of suspense. I loved getting to see past characters and learning who their children are. The friendship and protective nature of the group is unmatched.

I'm excited and can't wait to see where this series goes considering Gloves Off was one of my favorite MMA series!

Mary Jo☆☆☆☆
It was a good book full of non-stop action and a second-chance romance.

Emma moved to New York City to model and to get away from Carter Reynolds. She knew that if she stayed in California, she would have given in and done anything to be with Carter. Carter knew that Emma was the girl for him from the time he was in his teens but knew that he had to let her go, to fly, and one day, hopefully, they would reconnect.

What he didn't expect was a nightmare from the past would haunt them both and take them down a terrible path.

The only thing that they have going for them is the fact that they love each other and they can only hope that it's enough to save their souls.



As hidden truths are revealed, Carter and Emma find that no one in their circle is safe… and this is only the beginning.
