BOOK REVIEW...Fighting Love (Love to the Extreme #2) by Abby Niles

Title:  Fighting Love (Love to the Extreme #2)  
Author:  Abby Niles
Publication Date: December 31st 2013 by Entangled: Select
Goodreads URL: HERE
Plot:   Talk about kicking a fighter while he’s down.

Former Middleweight champion and confirmed bachelor Tommy "Lightning" Sparks has lost it all: his belt, his career, and now his home. After the devastating fire, he moves in with his drama-free best friend, Julie. One encounter changes everything and Julie is no longer the girl he’s spent his life protecting but a desirable woman he wants to take to his bed. Knowing his reputation, he’s determined to protect Julie more than ever—from himself.

Veterinarian Julie Rogers has been in love with Tommy since she was ten, but would love to get over the man. She’s quiet nights at home and a glass of wine. He’s clubbing all night and shots of tequila. As friends they work great. As a couple? No way in hell. She just can’t get her heart to agree. When she starts spending time with another fighter, the man who’s always treated her like a sister is suddenly not being very brotherly and enflames her body like never before.

Can two childhood friends make a relationship work, or will they lose everything because they stopped FIGHTING LOVE



I enjoyed this story, I truly did. I've always enjoyed the premises with a hot MMA fighter and the prognosis of best friends becoming more. It not only allows me to salivate over this sexy piece of man meat but it also gives me reason to dream that even the unexpected can become reality.


For Julie Rogers, life has always settled on two things: work and Tommy Sparks.

For Tommy Sparks, it had all been about his sport, the fame, and the women. And well, his best friend or "sister" Julie.

When Tommy loses his title, gets banned from the cage, and subsequently loses his house in a house fire he then turns to Julie for help. The two become house buddies and as we all can predict, sparks ignite and Tommy now starts seeing Julie in another light.

Only, when another fighter notices Julie romantically as well, how will it all turn out? Will Tommy ever be able to get his head stuck out of his ass to see Julie as a woman and pursue her before it's too late? And will he ever get another shot at the cage to reclaim his title?

A good, decent read but a little draggy at times and a little frustrating with Tommy's constant hot and cold inner turmoil about Julie. It kind of drove me nuts after a while! lol. He's as finicky and contemplative as a girl! ;)

My Rating:

-Overall : 8.59
-Plot : 8.5-9
-Writing : 8.5
-Characters : 8.5
-Cover : 8.5
