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.

REVIEW:

I was coming off my high from reading another book about a fighter and when I read the blurb for Extreme Love I though that it couldn’t get any better. Plus that cover, yum. But that is kind of where my love ended.

Cait has struggled with weight her whole life but she took control and lost 80 pounds. But she still has self esteem issues, which is understandable. Then sexy cage fighter Dante ‘Inferno’ Jones comes into her life and he can’t help but want her.

Dante takes one look at Cait and he can’t help but be drawn to her. He wants her but unlike every other woman he’s met she pushes him away. Dante is persistent. When he wants something, or someone, he doesn’t stop until he gets it. He tries to push away Cait’s insecurities but she continues to block him. This is where I started to really dislike Cait.

I really, really wanted to like her. When I started reading I thought she was going to be someone readers could connect with but she just kept complaining. I can understand her initial hang-ups but as the story continued they never went away it was a bit annoying after awhile. I wanted her to be a strong, confident woman and she wasn’t.

As for the story, I was really loving it but then it didn’t go anywhere. Plus, there was Dante’s rival who came to stir up trouble and was just a little too much. In the end it was an ok read. I absolutely loved Dante. He was all alpha and sexy but with sweet side to him.
