Kyle’s Return (Gloves Off #6)
Genre: M/F, Contemporary Romance
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 fatal fight left him wounded, his UFC career comes to a close. He has nothing, but he’s determined to get it all back.
My name is Megan. I’ve known violence, pain, and what it feels like to be scared to live another day. All of that changed the moment I refused to be a victim. Now that my psychotic ex, Alex, can’t find me, I’ve been given a second chance. I owe my life to my friends. The same goes for Kyle. Without him, I wouldn’t be able to feel.
Everyone hates him. But for the life of me I don’t. There’s something about him I can’t ignore. Being with Kyle makes me want it all. However, in loving a hated man, I didn’t know it’d bring the life I fled from back to haunt me. Everywhere I go danger lurks and bad things happen. Kyle believes it’s because of him, but I’m starting to think otherwise. I think Alex has found me, and if so, this time he’s not going to let me go.
“The only way I’m going to let you come over is if you tell me you missed me this week.”
“Really?” I shrieked.
“Yep, now say the words, love.”
“No. That’s ridiculous. I’m not gonna lie.”
He snorted. “But you just did.”
I opened my mouth to say something and then stopped; he got me with that one. And judging by the satisfied chuckle he tried to contain, he knew it too. “Fine. You want to play games? Then it looks like you won’t be hearing what I have to say. Bye-bye, French fry.”
Taking the upper hand, I hung up the phone. He was going to drive me insane. I had to hand it to him, he could definitely get my blood pumping. I did miss him, but I wasn’t about to give in to his antics. If anyone was going to submit first, I wanted it to be him. I got my wish when my phone started to ring. Deliberately, I refused to answer it, hoping it’d make him feel the restlessness I felt inside.
With a smirk on my face, I pulled into my neighborhood. He was just going to have to sweat a bit longer.
To my surprise, that wasn’t going to be very long. Because in my driveway, there Kyle stood, beside a sleek, black motorcycle. I hit the button to my garage and pulled past him. He walked up to my door and opened it with a smirk on his face. “You are one stubborn woman, you know that?”
My Review: 4/5 Stars
I will be honest and say that Kyle rubbed me the wrong way when he was first introduced into the Gloves Off Series. I mean the things head did, oh my goodness I wanted to take him out myself, but I can honestly say that he redeemed himself in my eyes.
Kyle and Megan I would say is my favorite couple, though it came close with Camden. What can I say I love it when the bad boys are redeemed in the perfect way.
Megan was in a horrible relationship, but when she meet Ryley she learned how to defend herself against her abusive ex. She would have gone as far as taking him out, but was stopped and let the police take him to jail. Little did she know ish was about to get real.
Kyle he was the guy everybody hated and after his accident, he had time to reflect on his past and realized all the things he did wrong and boy was it a lot and they were bad. He decided he was going to change for the better. He wanted the forgiveness of his sister and would do anything to get it. (not in a bad way)
I loved the connection between Kyle and Megan and I loved that she stood by his side no matter what. She was his own personal cheerleader and it was sweet. When the drama started Kyle wanted to nothing but protect Megan and he succeeded. This book was smooth and fast paced. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series.
I have my fingers crossed for Zane and Nicole.
