BOOK REVIEW...[ARC] Extreme Love by Abby Niles

New body. New clothes. New men.

Used to the average Joe, Caitlyn Moore is overwhelmed when the supremely masculine Dante Jones walks into her life and expresses an interest in her. At first she pushes him away, refusing to encourage the attention of a cage fighter. Then she learns Dante has a love ‘em and leave ‘em reputation. What better way to fine-tune her non-existent flirting skills than with a male who won’t stick around? But Dante has no intention of being a practice dummy; he’s out for all or nothing. Now Caitlyn must accept Dante—violent career and all—or let him go.

Dante “Inferno” Jones has one goal: win the Welterweight Championship. At a time when focus is crucial, the last thing he needs is a distraction. Yet Caitlyn Moore becomes a challenge he can’t resist. When the light-hearted pursuit shifts to a battle to win her heart, his focus is shot. Faced with losing the biggest match of his career, Dante must decide if his extreme life also has room for Extreme Love.

"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder"...

Caitlyn Moore battles insecurities like all of us girls: self-image and confidence issues.  When she meets alpha male hottie Dante, she can't believe her luck that a guy as good looking and desired as Dante would be genuinely interested in pursuing her.

Caitlyn was a very likable character who I gravitated towards and could relate to.  Dante, on the other hand, was mighty swoon-worthy and although having some jealousy and possessive issues at times, I loved his stubbornness and determination to win over the fair Caitlyn.

So here's the break down for me:

-The moral of this story is good: to accept and be happy with yourself.
I thought this book was cute and identifiable  for many women. Especially, when it comes to weight issues if you're one of those girls.

-The plot was a bit slow and there's no big obstacles or game changers throughout the story other than Caitlyn's self issues and Dante's career/ bi*&hy groupies.

My Rating:

-Overall : 8.5
-Plot : 8
-Writing : 8 
-Characters : 8
-Cover : 8
