She hates him, yet she can’t get him out of her mind.
Female Bantamweight fighter, Gabriella Reynolds, has a bad habit of falling for forbidden fighters. Enter Paxton Emerson. He’s tall, tattooed, and the current UFC Light Heavyweight Champion. Everyone wants a piece of him, and he only has eyes for her. Through no choice of her own, she’s fallen in his debt and he’s now demanding payment. Too bad it doesn’t involve currency. Gabby’s decision to fulfill her promise to him ultimately brings out her true feelings, but also spurs the unwanted attention of another.
Rage’s fixation on his newest obsession reaches dangerous levels. Unfortunately, Paxton Emerson has become a roadblock to his end goal and needs to be removed from the equation—by any means necessary.
Gabby will do anything to save Pax, but what happens when she’s the one who needs saving?
Paxton's Promise was flat out fan-freaking-tastic!!!! LP doesn't know how to disappoint. This has to be one of my all time favorite series. Each book, I get to see characters in LP's previous books from this series that. I love being able to see characters again that I loved. Got some Mason time in this one!!! Here I go gushing!!!! Can't help it when I love a book!!! Anyway, Paxton's Promise was another knockout by the wonderful L.P. Dover. The way she weaves a story together and sets up each detail to unfold is absolutely fantastic. I think we all have been waiting on Paxton's and Gabriella's story!!! I definitely have been!!! This story was told through both of their POVs. I love being in my fighters heads!!! All of them!!!
Gabriella was the main female character. As I said earlier, I was very happy to finally get her story!!! Gabriella is one of those female characters that we all love and connect with. She will do anything, and I mean anything, to protect the ones she loves. She has done that several times, but what she did to protect Paxton, showed how much she truly loved him. She is very fierce and stubborn, but loyal. Paxton was the main male lead. In previous books, I could tell he had a thing for Gabby. In this book, he did what he had to do to get her. He also did the unbelievable to protect her. Paxton was always a nice guy, but started hanging with the wrong group. He got out when it got bad, but that reputation stuck with him. They don't call him the Reaper for nothing. Camden made an appearance in this book. Camden still is going down the wrong path, but I seriously think he wants out. He just doesn't know how to get out. I can't wait for Camden to get his own story!!! He is one character that I have been wanting to learn and read about.
Paxton's Promise was an enthralling read from start to finish. I could not put this book down once I started. I absolutely have grown to love these characters. I have been reading about them for so long it feels like, that they have become my book family. I never want to say goodbye to them. I can't wait for LP's next book in The Gloves Off series which will be about Camden!!! Paxton's Promise is a MUST read!!!! I highly recommend this book to everyone!!!! Grab it now!!!!
