From New York Times bestseller L.P. Dover comes a story of passion, revenge, and twisted manipulation.


Ethan Jameson has it all. He’s one of the hottest fighters in the middleweight circuit and is loved by women everywhere. It seems nothing can stand in his way… except for the dragon tattoo that marks him as a target. He knew the day would come when Nikolai Michelson would seek out his vengeance. He even fooled himself into believing he was ready to fight back… until a one-night stand changes everything.
Peyton Emerson; Hollywood starlet and America’s sweetheart. She’s always wondered what it would be like to have Ethan to herself. After a drunken weekend in Vegas, she got the pleasure of finding out firsthand. But being with her comes at a cost. Peyton knows all too well how the paparazzi tear couples apart with their lies.
Still, there’s no denying that their one-night stand sparked something inside of them—a need for one another they can’t quell. Unable to fight their attraction, they work to keep their relationship a secret. Unfortunately, their efforts aren’t enough to keep an enemy from finding out and using that information to manipulate them both. When Peyton and Ethan are approached with a grisly demand, they have no choice but to accept. Those they love will pay the horrific price if they try to refuse…






5 out of 5 stars
Wanting the Fight is the third book in the Gloves Off: The Next Generation series by L.P. Dover. You can read series without reading the Gloves Off series but you totally will want to after reading this series, if you haven’t yet. I do recommend reading this series in order though since there is a subplot that follows the series. 
It all started with a one-night stand that changes everything…
Peyton and Ethan woke up in Vegas in bed together and agreed that it could only be a one-night stand between friends who were parting ways. Ethan was staying in Vegas for his fights and Peyton was going back to LA for some R & R before her next movie shoot. That was the plan anyway. Now, Ethan was going to LA and the sexual tension was thick all the way home. They fought their attraction while they were apart but when they are together…the attraction is just too much. Not only did they need each other in all the best ways but they also needed each other because they were in danger. They can try to hide from it but each of their generation was going to have their turn… 
I am loving this series. I read the original series so it’s awesome to catch up with them and now to read their children’s stories. The love. The suspense. The heat. It’s all there and then some. I can’t wait to see who is up next!
