UFC Middleweight fighter, Ryley Jameson, swore it would never happen again. He was done with his ex, and over the pain she’d inflicted when she left him. At least, that’s what he tells people. Maybe if he says it enough, he’ll begin to believe it himself.

Regretting her decision to let Ryley go, Ashleigh Warren comes back into town and confronts him. Holding only one secret

I was really excited about reading this book! Both the main characters in this book had their own novella, which started off their story and set up the events of this book! This book obviously takes place after that novella and continues the characters story! I would also recommend that you read the novella before this book to give you a better idea of how the characters story started! I loved this book! It continued on the characters story perfectly, and I had a hard time putting it down once I ...more

3 Ryley Stars

Ryley & Ashleigh

I liked book 1 well enough. And book 2 has some of the same characters. You have the ones your rooting for and some you want to strangle haha.

In the beginning I didn’t like Ryley, I think because he acted more like a teenage then whatever age he is. But when he finally let Ashleigh speak, he redeemed himself.
Also not taking his brothers side made me like him more.

3.5 Stars

I don't have a lot to say about this book; it was pretty good, but didn't blow me out of the water. I was tempted to give it 3 stars, but I loved Ryley, and Ashleigh redeemed herself relatively quickly so I was able to enjoy her character for most of the book. The tension was great, and had me finishing the book in one day. I thought a lot of it was pretty cliche, especially the whole (view spoiler).

I received a copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads, so here is my review. Ryley wants revenge. He wants Ashleigh to suffer just as he suffered when she left him for Colin. Now that she realizes what a mistake she made, she wants him back. Will she convince him that she was scared and she has always loved him? Can he let her back in without getting hurt again? And what the hell is Camden's problem? There is a lot of jealousy, pain, hurt and a perfect opportunity of revenge or so C ...more

Lovin Ryley

I love this series. There is something about Ryley that I can't stop thinking about. I was crushed when Ash left him and now coming to her sense Ash wants to get back with him. But if Colin and Camden has a say in it, they won't let her near Ryley. With Ash keeping a secret from Ryley it is only a matter of time before the secret will be out. How much can Ryley push Ash away before she gives up? Must read and see what happens in Ryley's revenge and you won't miss the battle between Ca
Great short read, looking forward to the next book in the series.

This is the 2nd in the series and I highly recommend you read A Fighter’s Desire: Part One before reading this book so you will understand what is going on.

When Ryley saw Ashleigh at the after party he knew she was it for him but when she chose another man over him he swore it would never happen again. He never told anyone how devastated he was by this. Ashleigh knew she was scared but when the reality of how she truly felt came out she realized that she made the wrong choice. She loved Colin bu

A Dark Side Of Revenge

While Ryley's Revenge could be read as a stand a lone, it would be best if you read at least, A Fighter's Desire Part 1, as that is the prequel to this story. If you can, I do suggest to read some of L.P's Second Chance series books, as most of the characters are introduced in those. I'll post what books I think lead to Ryley's Revenge at the end of my two cents.

Even after falling for bad boy Ryley Jameson, Ashleigh Warren left him for a safe relationship the guy she loved

Ryley and Camden both get what they deserve in book four of L.P. Dover’s Gloves Off series, and since witnessing Camden’s deplorable attitude and antics in A Fighter’s Desire, I couldn’t be happier with how it all plays out. The Jameson brothers may be identical twins, but they definitely don’t hold all of the same attributes. Sure, they’ve had their fun together and have gotten a bit out of control and partied it up with women and booze, but Ryley is a light weight compared to Camden, and both ...more

WOW. That was definitely a page turner. I simply have no words. I loved every single page of this book and couldn't put it down.

Ryley and Ashleigh are definitely two of my favorite characters in this series and I was so anxious to read their story after reading the prequel. I have to confess that I was a little bit p*ssed with Ashleigh when she broke up with Ryley and went back to Collin but d*mn, she definitely knows how to correct her mistakes. It was definitely interesting to see the dynamics
Sandra Shipman ~ Two Book Pushers
I have read all the previous books in the series and I love all the couples by Ryley and Ashleigh's story is my favorite. Something about Ryley just gets to me. This one picks up about a month after their break-up.

Ashleigh is in Aspen with her family but her mind and heart is in California. She needs to get back to reality and in the arms of the man she loves, Ryley. She doesn't know if he will take her back after what she has done but she will fight for what she wants and believes in.

Ryley’s Revenge is the continuation of Ryley and Ashleigh’s story. We first meet Ryley and Ashleigh in “ A Fighter Desire – part 1” which ended with the Ashleigh leaving Ryley for Colin (her college sweetheart). Ryley’s Revenge picks up after Ashleigh and Colin’s trip to Vegas where she thinks she is pregnant with Ryley’s baby, but the pregnancy test is negative. She realizes that she is still in love with Ryley and the book follows her while she tries to wi

L.P Dover has done it again! I have been highly anticipating Ryley's Revenge since I finished Tyler's book and it didn't disappoint. I loved Ryley in Gloves Off 1, even if I hated the ending for making me wait. However it was totally worth it and I'm glad I trusted the author to complete the story satisfyingly.

Once more, this books is filled with plenty of drama, MMA-ness (probably not a word), and hot romance with brilliant characters who make you you love them. It moves at a fast pace and just

Ryley's Revenge, is a continuation of Ryley and Ashleigh's story which started in A Fighter's Desire <- a must read!!

Ryley fell in love and Ashliegh chose the other guy in her life, Colin. She moves to Aspen, back to her family, to clear her head. Leaving Vegas and Ryley behind she tries to be happy but Ryley is a constant on her mind.

Ryley goes back to his womanizing ways when Ashleigh chooses Colin over him. He fe

"I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads."

This is the third in the series (one being a novel in two parts) and although could be read as a stand alone, a lot of the nuance and back-story would be lost, so I don't recommend it.

In the last couple of books we have come to know the characters quite well, and it was inevitable that Ryley would clash with his twin sometime soon. That it would be over Ashley Warren makes this a very interesting read. I was frustrated wi
Rebecca from Cover to Cover Book Blog
Oh my goodness this is an amazing book!!! There are so many emotions in this book. Ryley and Ashleigh are beautiful together. They compliment each other so well that I wish I have that one day. At the beginning Ashleigh ran from the truth. She didn't want to believe her love for Ryley was true. Her mother talked to her and told her a simple statement. She realized she was going to fight for what she wanted, and she wanted Ryley. Ryley on the other hand was a jerk at first. He didn't want to give ...more

Omg this book is amazing. It will leave you speechless. I need to know more about Gabby, Pax and Camden. I felt so many emotions reading this book.

Ashleigh knows she made the worst decision of her life leaving Ryley. She doesn't know how to get him back. But she knows she has to try. She needs to fight for what she wants. But can she handle Ryley and his hate? Can she get over how he instantly went back to his manwhore ways?

Ryley is miserable and doesn't know how to get over Ashleigh. She brok

Intense love affair!

Like woah! I have been rooting for Ashleigh and Ryley ever since L.P. Dover has started the Gloves Off series. We all knew how that went and I was very heart broken. Anyhow, I am now happy that I've get to read more about them and my favorite characters gets to have a happy ending!

I love MMA/fighting guy characters and Ryley, he is just so intense and hot! I liked his strong personality inside and out plus his undying love for Ashleigh.

I recommend reading the prequel to this book, A Fighter's Desire Part 1, before reading Ryley's Revenge.

I fell in love with Ryley and Ashleigh's story in A Fighters Desire Part 1 and could not wait for their story.

This book was worth the wait!! I love, love, loved this book! What a page turner! I could not put it down once I started to read.

Ryley, I loved everything about him. Ashleigh, she redeemed herself to me after her actions in the prequel. Cam, I ca

With the possibility that she could be pregnant with Ryleys child and the fact that she knows she made a mistake when she left, Ashleigh has to figure out how to tell him and how to get him back.

I loved Ryley and Ashleigh's story. I can't wait to read Gabriella's story.

Ryley and Ashleigh were in a relationship when she left him without a goodbye. Since then, he has thrown himself into training for his next fight, against his own twin brother Camden. Ashleigh was scared and ran but now that she's back will she make it work with Ryley or will she get back with Colin.

This is definitely my favorite series by L. P. Dover. I enjoy the Storylines, characters and all of the drama involved.

Love, love, love this book. Get this book. It's my favorite LP Dover book. I fell in love with Ryley in the novella Gloves Off but loved him more in this book. I wasn't sure about Ashleigh but Mrs. Dover changed my mind. Ryley and Ashleigh go thru so much but you can feel the love they have for each other. I can't believe Camden I hated him he did awful stuff. Can't wait to read Gabby story.

Holy cow! Another knockout by LP Dover! I swear, she gets better with each character, if that's even possible.....

I have been waiting for this book for what seemed like forever. I love Ryley's whole persona. Cam? Not so much. I absolutely adore the way Dover incorporates old and new characters in her books.

Always leaves me wanting more! December 29th can't get here soon enough....Paxton may just be my second favorite right now :)

This is such an amazing, well written and exciting read! Ryley is one amazing, strong, sexy fighter. Ashleigh is sexy, smart, outgoing strong and determined! When life pulls these two apart Ashleigh makes the decision to try to mend them back together! But there are a few people that work against them! One who is in love and the other who is jealous or whacked. Either way this is one of those books you just can't get enough of! I can't wait for the next read!
