ARC Review: Craving The Fight by LP Dover

Fame. Money. Status. An infinite number of women standing ringside in hopes of one night with him. These are all the things Carter Reynolds loves about being MMA royalty. As a UFC Heavyweight champion, and the son of the illustrious Matt Reynolds, Carter thinks he has everything he could ever want.

Until he comes face to face with Emma Jameson—the one who got away. The pair are bonded by a secret from their past, one that none in their inner circle can ever know about…

Thanks to her father, Emma is no stranger to the MMA world. UFC Middleweight champion, Ryley Jameson, is known far and wide for his scandalous antics in and out of the ring. His fame put her in the spotlight at a very early age. It even led to her lucrative modeling career and the opportunity for her to travel the world. Now Emma is back with the family of fighters she left behind and quickly discovers a darkness that has wriggled its way into the MMA fold.

Someone demands retribution for the sins of the past, and they’ve chosen to make Emma their first target. Determined to keep her safe, Carter will do whatever it takes to protect her, even if that means putting his life on the line.

As hidden truths are revealed, Carter and Emma find that no one in their circle is safe… and this is only the beginning.


Carter and Emma were first loves who couldn’t make it work but when she goes home to avoid a creepy stalker in New York, they rekindle. He’s determined to protect her at any cost and proves it. There’s a lot of suspense, high steam and an intriguing villain, as well as an unlikely ally so all in all, a great read.

There’s a lot of background information about the previous series but it’s scattered throughout the book in bits & pieces, which was tedious and not really useful. The backstory was never entirely clear but the constant references to it distracted from Emma and Carter’s story. I would have liked more interaction with just the two of them instead so that cost this book a star. I did love the characters and the way things played out. There’s a big supporting cast with some interesting characters so I look forward to more from this world.
