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.
Holly’s 3.5 Star Review
After reading books such as Beautiful Disaster and Real, iv developed a bit of a thing for fighters, so when I saw this book it was a no-brainer. (Plus, super sexy cover)
So after I finally dragged myself away from the cover (which I’m not gonna lie, was quite some time) I started the book. It’s about Caitlyn, a girl who still struggles with her self esteem and appearance after losing 80lbs. She gets dragged into the world of MMA by her friend, which is where she meets the sexy, fighter Dante ‘inferno’ Jones.
Cait is a breath of fresh air for Dante when she doesn’t fall all over him, and when she quickly makes an exit, he’s intrigued. Dante isn’t one to beat around the Bush and although he tries to take things slow for Fair’s sake, he makes sure she knows without a doubt that she wants him.
Throw in a catty ex-girlfriend and Dante’s scheming, championship opponent hell bent on ruining him, and you’ve got the recipe for a relationship disaster. But after sharing some seriously dreamy scenes together and overcoming lots of obstacles, in the end Dante finally gets the girl.
The second half of the book had me pulled in a lot more than the first half and I loved the ending (the Epilogue had me wiping away a tear). Dante was just perfection! Muscles, tattoos, head-strong, hot-headed, sweet, caring and just down right sexy! Cait was likeable, shy, self-conscience but also had a feisty side and I loved how Dante made her confidence grow as the book went on. Cait’s friends Amy and Paul were great secondary characters and I’d love to hear more from them in any future books.
I can’t fault the book other than to say iv read similar books that just had more of an edge and had me more invested. All in all, Extreme Love was a great book and if you love reading about sexy fighters or just wanna stare at the amazing cover then you should definitely give this a go.
