Cain by LB Dunbar
Series: Paradise #2
Genres: Sports Romance
“I hate that I love you,” she said. “You left me.”
“I lost you, there’s a difference. Now that I found you, I intend to keep you.”
I’d tasted the sweetest fruit of temptation, and I wanted another bite. I had promised myself before, but once wasn’t enough. The savory flavor of her lingered long after I’d lost her. Contending with the pressure to return to the fight, in order to prove myself to my father and the world, I had to let her go.
It has been a year. Sofie Vincentia and I had played a dangerous game. For one night, we pretended, only to discover our farce was real. I’d lost her, but I hadn’t stopped searching, hoping for her return. I was used to getting what I wanted, so when she didn’t come to me, I had to go after her. This would be the greatest fight of my life.
I haven’t read the first book in this series but let me tell you that I will be reading it soon! This one was deliciously good! Cain and Sofie have a history with one another. The meet again after a year apart and the chemistry oozed off the pages between these two. Cain is an MMA fighter which means he is tough and determined but there is a soft center that is so sweet and endearing. Cain’s father leaves a lot to be desired in my opinion and I hated him from the get go. While his brother, Abel was just as endearing as Cain himself. Sofie was a fighter in her own rite. Her story is just as heartbreaking as Cain’s and she didn’t trust him easily because of their past. She has been hurt and it is understandable she is the way she is. However Cain is determined to win her over and conquer his demons. As I said this story was wonderful and one that I am thrilled I got the chance to read. The characters are all well written and leave you breathless at times. I’m not a huge sports romance fan but this one simply works for me.
Start the series now! Abel is now available!
