HE'S BACK! And this time he's not letting anything get in his way. KYLE'S RETURN IS THE LAST BOOK IN THE GLOVES OFF SERIES. *~*

I promised myself I’d stay away from dangerous men, but I couldn’t live up to that when Kyle Andrews came back to town. He’s a manipulator, a guy who’ll do whatever it takes to get what he wants, sabotaging anyone who gets in the way. After a fat

I wanted more from this...but I got a soapy love and redemption story...there's nothing wrong with that but this was like a fairytale and mushy with a little bit suspence and drama in it and I just couldn't get into ultimate evil turned good didn't twist or curl my toes, but it was fun seeing all those fighters again and say goodbye to them all...

but my statement still stands that Camden's story was the best in these series...

The last book in the series.... boooooooo I want more!!!!

Absolutly gutted that this series is done but it was really nice how everyone got their HEA!!

This was probably my least favourite of them all but that because I am such a Twins of Terror fan nothing could come close.

I loved how Megan got stronger and faced her fears and I think she was perfect for Kyle on his road to redemption, you gotta love a reformed bad boy! All the girls from this series are kick ass and Megan was no different, I

Amazing Series

I wasn't quite sure how L.P was going to redeem Kyle, but this was a perfect ending to this amazing series. I loved every single book in this series and the characters I won't forget. With Kyle wanting to start over and get his sister to forgive him and Megan wanting to get away from her ex for good, they never thought that want they need might be each other. I couldn't put my kindle down, I loved this book from start to finish. Amazing series from an amazing author. I can say I a

My Rating: 4/5 stars!!

Yay! This series has gotten a reprieve! After a so and so start to this series, Camden's Redemption finally held my interest and with Kyle's Return following after, and being the final book my expectations were raised (just a smidge).

Annnnnd... it did not disappoint! Another book that had me reading til the wee hours! I couldn't put it down.

Kyle was first introduced in this series as the jerkface, villainous fighter who everyone hated because he was just bad news. But aft

I do love bad boys who are good and Kyle is one of them. Yes, he was bad in the past but his love for his sister turn him to the good side :)

The last book of the series Gloves Off.😢. I’m going to miss this gang of fighters.
In this book the protagonists are Megan and Kyle, both characters appear in the first and third book , and both have come a long way.
Megan appears briefly in the first book when she hooked up with Riley in a bar, and just when they are going to have sex in the bar, Megan’s boyfriend appears and hits them both, but Riley immediately beats him up. Riley offers Megan to teach her self defense so she can defend herself

4 ½ out of 5 stars

Wow, I can’t believe this series is coming to an end. I LOVED all the books!!

Kyle Andrews is the guy everyone hates. He is ruthless, a cheater, and put his sister’s life in danger. At least he used to be those things.

Kyle has done a lot of awful things, but being in a wheelchair gave him time to reflect on his life. He wants to change and make everything right.

Kyle ends up back in Las Vegas at his soon to be brother in law’s gym. There he meets th

Kyle, Kyle, Kyle.

The bad-boy everyone hated. And with very good reason.
I've always said from book 1 of this series how much I love it. How each book got better and better. You know the saying "save the best for last"? That applies here.

How L.P. took a character so low, so vile and self-centered and completely turned him into someone you wanted to see succeed takes some serious talent. And she has it!

All through this series, I was always on edge, wondering when Kyle was going to pop up and w

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads, so here is my review. Kyle's Return is the fifth book in the Gloves Off series by L.P. Dover and I am gonna miss these MMA fighters. Kyle has returned to try and salvage his relationship with his sister but everyone is wondering what he is really up too. He was the main fighter on the Dark Side and he hurt a lot of people, not just in the ring but outside of it too. So when he lost the feeling in his legs, he vowed to make ...more

I was so excited when I saw that Kyle was getting his own story and I couldn't wait to read it! It did not disappoint at all!! Kyle completely redeemed himself and I have no doubts that he will steal your heart like he did mine. Kyle's Return was wonderful and I positively loved it!

There's no question that Kyle has changed and become a better person. He got the wake-up call he needed, he got his second chance, and he took it. Kyle really turns out to be a great guy: he's strong, protective, and

I wanted to hate Kyle. Everything he had put this group through, but I couldn't. This was the perfect ending to this series. Yes, Camden and Pax were also disliked at one time and I grew to love them. Kyle was just so much worse then both of them. I grew to love him.

Megan West was a bad ass chick. She had no problems taking down her nasty ex and putting Kyle in his place when he needed it. I love that the girls in this

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

This is the last (sobsob) in the series and I have enjoyed every single one. I plan on doing a Gloves Off marathon when I next take a beach holiday as I am sure that my memory didn’t fill in all the pieces as I read them over their release dates. And that is especially relevant for this finale. Kyle, the seemingly irredeemable, decides to take a chance and reconcile with his past. He also hopes to make a better future. I love
4.5* Another great read, not as enjoyable as I had hoped. After reading Camden's story I was expecting this to be as good but maybe because I had not read all previous books relating to Kyle and is asshole ways. I didn't hate him as much, don't get me wrong after the way he treated Tyler and his sister Kacey I thought he was a dickhead but he did seem genuinely sorry after everything that happened to Kacey.

I did really enjoy this story though and it was gripping especially towards the end. I lov

WOW.  Where can I start with this book?  It is the fifth book in the Gloves Off series.  The series can be read as stand alone books or as a series but to get the most out of the story I suggest that you read them in order.

In Kyle's story we follow Kyle as he tries to prove to his former enemies that he has changed and that he is not the man that he used to be.  The story is told from Kyles and Megan's point of view.  This really let's you understand

I enjoyed this book but the author needs to draw out the drama just a tad more. When Kyle stepped foot in Tyler's gym Megan was mean and hateful to him. He had done so many of her friends wrong and no one was ready for forgiveness. What irritates me is that it wasn't long and she is all nice and loving all over him. There was no time line and it seemed instantly. As much as he was hated they wouldn't have forgiven him that quickly.
That being said it was still a good book. It draws you in from th

Ohhhh No this is the last book in this series. I loved this series and all the MMA fighers along with their women. Since all the books had a fighter fighting for his redemption, this book about Kyle fighting for his redemption was the most difficut to read because he did such awful things. Nontheless it was good anyway. I guess everyone who wants forgiveness should be forgiven. In the end I did like Kyle and the way he learned to love and protect.

Wow I loved this book. I loved how Kyle's story was told and how Megan was willing to believe in him. But would Megan's friends try to keep her away from Kyle because of his past bad deeds? This story was a great follow-up to the 4 previous stories but you could have read it without reading the others. However, reading the previous 4 stories gives you a great background for this one. ...more

Kyle's Return is the 5th and final installment to L.P. Dover's Gloves Off series. You will need to read the books prior to Kyle's before starting his story. At the end of my review, I'll have a list of books which I think would help you understand this story.

Kyle Andrews had it all as an UFC fighter then lost it all during his last fight in the ring. He was a good fighter with the worst, deceitful reputation, and everyone knew it. He didn't care who he hurt as long as he c

Review originally posted at Ramblings From This Chick

Kyle's Return is the fifth book in the Gloves Off series by L.P. Dover, but this book can be read as a standalone. I would recommend reading this series in order though to get the full experience. Kyle has come so far since the beginning of the series, and I really think that it adds a lot to this book if you are able to see just how much he had to come back from. This book was great, and am so glad that I got to see a different side to Kyle.

I have read the whole Gloves Off Series and have loved all of them. This is the fifth one in the series, each one is about a different couple so could be read as stand alone but with this one I would read the others so you have the full background of Kyle's asshole ways. He was not the only bad guy in the group but he was #1 in my book. And you would also meet Megan and get a bit more of her story.

Megan moved to Las Vegas after getting away from her crazy and abusive ex-boyfriend and has been t
