Review of 'Meant for Me' by L.P. Dover

Book Tour

After a night of raw passion with the man Claire O’Briene had been secretly admiring for years, she thought their time together had come once and for all. Fate had finally brought them back to each other, but unfortunately nothing had changed. He was still the same man who ran away from relationships. Against his better judgment, Mason Bradley gave in to the temptation and allowed himself one night with the one woman he’d been too afraid to want … too afraid to need.

Four months after leaving Claire and regretting every minute of it, Mason gets called in for an undercover mission that’s not only dangerous, but brings back a past he spent years trying to forget. A past of fighting … of getting in the ring and using his fists to get what he wanted: money, women, and drugs. Now there are fighters turning up dead, and it’s Mason’s job to find out the truth.Knowing he might not come out of the mission alive, Mason seeks out Claire to tell her how he truly feels, only to find another man competing for her love as well. Fighting is what he’s good at, and for once he will be fighting not only for justice … but for love.

**My thoughts**

MMA is definitely not my thing, but I have repeatedly seen L.P. Dover's name riding around the indie circuit. I decided to give this story a shot. Even though it is not my sport of choice, I found this romance to be lots of fun to read. Ironically, a friend of mine had just been telling me all about MMA about a week before I picked up this book. That actually helped me to better picture what was going on during all of those intense fight scenes.

The relationship between Claire and Mason is intense enough, without the added dynamic of the killer. That part of the story just added another fun layer to the story. While it was definitely a big part of the story, it didn't overshadow the romance that was the main focus of the story. For thos who are into steamy sex scenes, they exist in abundance!

This is a series about second chances, and that is precisely what Claire and Mason are seeking. I had a hard time believing her other relationship attempt had gotten as far as it did, in such a short time. She is better off with her other half, who is Mason. 

It is a long book, but actually passes quite quickly. This book is also supposed to be a standalone, but there are plenty of references to other stories in the series to help you understand what is going on. It also entices you to want to perhaps check out those other titles.
