A Fighter’s Desire: Part 1 (Gloves Off # 0.5)

By L.P. Dover

BR A Fighter's Desire 1


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.


A FIGHTER’S DESIRE: PART 1 is a prequel novella to book 2 in the Gloves Off series, RYLEY’S REVENGE.

I’m just going to jump right in and say that I found it very hard trying to like Ryley and Camden given that they’re both egotistical manwhores.  And what kind of a woman do they want sandwiched between them?  They want a woman who has sex like a whore but hasn’t slept with a lot of men.  Can you say double standards?  Then they meet Ashleigh and they’re suddenly desperate to have her, all because she rejects them and tells them that they would never be able to handle her.  Apparently her words are enough to convince the twins that this is the girl they’ve been looking for.

Ashleigh was ok, but she also had an ego and I don’t get where it came from.  Bragging to two manwhores that they couldn’t possibly handle her was a little farfetched, and considering that she didn’t do anything spectacular, again, I don’t get where her comments came from.  I felt she was all talk and no action.  She starts a sexual relationship with Ryley and very quickly feelings develop on both sides.  But she’s in love with her good friend, Colin, and has been for years, so when Colin sees that he might lose her to Ryley, he decides to tell her how he feels.  Ashleigh makes her choice and this is where I assume RYLEY’S REVENGE comes in.

I have mixed feelings about this novella.  I read it a few days ago and I still can’t figure out how I feel about it.  I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t love it either.  I’ll admit, I was rooting for Ashleigh and Ryley, and they do get their own book in the series, so I’m assuming they will get their HEA at some point.
