All I ever wanted was to be a female fighter.
It was in my blood to smack people around.
Some girls wore pink dresses and makeup, I wore sneakers and bruises.
I was a loner, stuck to myself because I was different, until Camden Steel moved next door.
I punched him in the mouth, and he saw me through rose colored glasses from that day on.
I had everything I ever wanted.

Tate and Camden have quite the history together. Tate has never been like other girls growing up. She loves to fight and is not about pretty frilly things. It's those differences that made Camden fall for her as a kid and what made it hurt so bad when she was forced to go to college in another state and to sever ties with him. When the college thing doesn't pan out she returns with a determination not to compromise on what she wants. That is to fight. Her dad, a former fighter, is dead set again ...more

LOVE TAP: Told in 'dual perspectives' (Tatum aka Tate & Camden) - A second chance romance.

We're first introduced to twenty one year old Tatum whose attending College at UCLA as a journalism major which is by no means doing what she loves but writing about it is close enough.

This book ticked so many boxes for me, hot muscled fighter with a heart, humor, romance, female badass who is tough and kicks butt! It was so much better than I could have even hoped for.

Tate is a tough chick who’s never liked playing with dolls and tea sets. She’s never had much interest in stereotypical girl things like dolls and dresses, and she’s hated princesses. Instead, she’s always loved to fight! Camden was her childhood best friend, her first love, her first boyfriend, her first for ev

Overall Opinion: This was an ok second chance romance. I didn't end up mad because of the reason behind their separation-- so there is that ;). I think I just wanted more. I felt like we didn't get all that in depth into their characterizations or their story. I don't really have strong feelings about it one way or the other, as I didn't become all that invested in the story. It won't go down on my favorites shelf, and I really don't think it'll be all that memorable in the long run -- j

first of all, imagine a mash up between these two movies: Never back down and A Million Dollar baby but with a happy ending, and characters being NA - a badass, sassy, snappy and bold heroine and a true demanding but devoted and loyal alpha, both of them being fighters with a second chance at love opportunity, with a little hate/love/lust interference in between the takes (hawt damn, hawt sex, i even overlooked the fact that they went bareback after the 4 years they'v

Can I just say WOW! I freaking love Tate. She is a bad ass bitch who don't take shit from anyone. I love her attitude, her sass and the fact that she can kick some serious ass. Tatum "Hellcat" Davis is my kinda girl. I feel a kinship with her because she was never into wearing makeup and dresses and playing with dolls. Instead she wore t-shirts, jeans and sneakers while covered in scrapes and bruises and she loved to fight and I love me a fighting bitch because that was me.

I've this authors MC books and loved them. And when I saw she was releasing Love Tap, I knew I had to read it, glad I did! I love M.N.Forgy's writing and I enjoyed Camden and Tate's second chance love story. Childhood sweethearts. Until Tatum was faced with a tough decision. Stay and feel like she could possibly hold Camden back from his dream of being a fighter. Or leave. Go away to college, abandon her own dreams of being a fighter.

Update: Audiobook Review 5 Stars

What did you love best about Love Tap?

Everything. I loved it the first time I read it, and I loved it more now with the audiobook. I loved the unique plot, the strength of the characters, the development of the story and most of all, the HEA.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Candem and Tate. Both main characters were amazing. Like I said before, what I loved the most about them was their strength. They weren’t only strong fighters, but also strong people.

A female fighter?! Yessah!! I'm in!!

Tatum Davis was by far different from many female leads I've come across in reads. She was strong, refreshing, self-less, and tenacious. Not to mention, she was mighty bad ass in the ring. Watch out!!

Tatum has had her hand in getting lost in expectations of others, doubting herself and her wants and needs in life, and even experiencing the pangs of utter heartbreak. She has lived tr

I had high hopes for LOVE TAP. I'm not a huge fan of fighting (MMA or boxing), but for some reason that element works for me in books. So I was happy to see one of my favorite authors jump into this arena.

LOVE TAP revolves around the story of Tate and Camden. They grew up together, were high school sweethearts but then their relationship fell apart as Tate tried to live up to her father's expectations while at the same time hoping Camden c

I've only read M.N. Forgy's MC books so when I saw the blurb for Love Tap, I got super excited. Not only is it about a fighter but it's about a female fighter and I love strong female leads. Add that on top of being a second chance story and I was sold.

Tate Davis has only ever wanted to be a fighter since she was a little girl. It's in her blood and she lives and breathes it. No matter how much her mother wanted her to wear dresses and look the part of the pretty little girl, Tate just wouldn't

I never actually read sports books. But this book was so different for me cause the female's dream was to be an MMA fighter.
Tate and Camden grew up together. Tate was not like other little girls. She was not into barbies but she wanted to be a fighter, like her father. Camden and Tate Experienced everything together. Camden was there for her when her mother passed away. He was there for her when her father forbid her from doing any fighting, so when h

I really enjoyed this. Tate is a strong female lead. She had been living her life trying to please others and it just wasn't working for her any more. Tate's dream is to fight, it's in her blood and she's going to do what ever it takes to make her dreams come true.

Camden - Tate was his soulmate, but she walked away four years ago, leaving him without looking back. Since then his life has spiral out of control, but he can't talk about what started his spiral.

Brutal yet brilliant

Love Tap is a sports romance that focuses on the sport as much as the romance and being based on MMA fighters it's not for the faint hearted but it will definitely get your pulse racing. These two live hard, fight hard and love hard because 'fighters never do anything soft!'
One doing everything she can to get in the cage...the other fighting his way out of it. A scorching hot, emotional, MMA romance that sucked me in from the very beginning! This was something different from Forgy, but no less visceral, that's for sure. This is one fighter romance that is a definite must read!

"You want to know why you couldn't move on and be with anyone else? Because nobody can fill your dark desires like I can."

For the last four years, Tatum Davis has lived the life that her mother and her father wanted her to live, but in doing so, she lost herself by pretending to be someone that she wasn’t, giving up the one boy who owned her heart from their first encounter. But one act of violence proves to Tate that she was born to be different, and she refuses to keep living half a life; it’s time for her to live the life of a fighter because that’s what defines her…that’s what makes her feel alive…that’s what s ...more

***4 stars***

What do you get with a book about a female and male fighter who have a I-hate-you-but-really-love-you kind of relationship?

A hot, sexy one with two characters fighting their demons the only way they know how, with their fists.

“I don’t want to report about the best fighters in the world. I want to be one”

Tate has always been different from other girls and has never wanted to be anything but a fighter, following in her dad’s footsteps.

This is not my type of book, so I am not sure how to review it. I believe most people will enjoy it. It is relatively well written and the story line is interesting. It's just not for me.

I grew up with a lot of arguing and I don't enjoy reading about more of it. I get the enemy to lover premise, I just realize it's not a sub genera that I enjoy reading.

"You want to know why you couldn't move on and be with anyone else? Because nobody can fill your dark desires like I can."

Tate has been going through life like a robot. Doing things that are expected of her. She was forced to give up her passion for fighting when she lost her mother to a silent killer as a teenager. She moved to collage because it's what her father wanted her to do. She gave up the only man that she ever loved so that he could have the career that he always dreamed of.

This story begins with Tatum aka "Tate" Davis living in California while attending UCLA. She is far from her home in Chicago, and she is miserable. She only went to college because it is what her parents wanted. All it takes is one fight to finally give her the courage to do what she was born to do..fight. She returns to Chicago to pursue her dream of becoming a professional figh

Tate was a scrappy tomboy, and the daughter of a boxer, who always wanted to be an MMA fighter. But her mother died of cancer and her father convinced her to go to college after high school instead of pursue her dreams. Now she is back in town after 4 years to try to make her career in fighting happen, landing in the same gym as Camden. Camden i ...more
