* REVIEW * - Meant for Me (Second Chances #3) by L.P. Dover

Reviewer : Kaylene
Rating : 5 Stars

Note :  this book is a stand alone novel but can be read as the third in the Second Chances series of books by L.P. Dover

Meant for Me is for those who love a good MMA fighter romance.  This was something new for me and it certainly changed my mind about fight books which I have always steered clear of.  This book has it all, hot sexy man, strong lead woman, and a seriously good storyline.  There are two books before this one and, as this was a review read for me I did not read the other two, however I would recommend you read the first two as well as there were some parts of the story where the background would have been good on some of the characters.

The book starts out and I was hooked straight away.  We meet Mason a cop who was a MMA fighter and gave it all up.  We also meet Claire who has a boyfriend and seems quite happy.   In walks Mason and he turns her world upside down all over again.   They previously hooked up for a one night stand and then he leaves and it crushes Claire.   The story progresses and you are left asking if Claire will actually take Mason back and if she will let him back into her heart. 

What I liked - a HEA, a fantastic storyline, a strong female lead, a sexy hot male lead, some great support characters, and a standalone book.  This book is definitely worth 5 stars and it was a page turner for me, so I thoroughly recommend it to those who like a good fight book with an awesome storyline.

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. 

Six 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.
