Love to the Extreme #4
Abby Niles
Releasing February 15th, 2016

Doctor Ella Watts wants her old life back. Desperately. But the past has returned for its rematch, and going back home—even telling anyone her real name—isn’t an option until she’s confident in her MMA abilities. Personal trainer Lance Black is the man to help her reach her goals. Not only is he toned, muscular, and gorgeous, he’s patient, a great teacher, and willing to treat her like a worthy opponent. Except his size makes her freeze whenever he gets too close. If Ella can’t learn how to overcome her fear of being attacked, she’ll never be able to move on with her life.

Underground fighter Lance Black knows there’s more to the mysterious blonde ninja than a beautiful woman determined to improve her fighting skills. She can best anyone close to her size – man or woman – but insists on working out with him, even though he’s got a good 70 pounds and several inches on her. Despite her reticence, he’s determined to get her to open up so he can help her get over her mental block. And if that means he can get to know her outside the gym, all the better.

As long as she never learns his secrets.

Ella aka Kelsey ran away from her past when it got to be too scary. Before she will allow herself to go back home she wants to train with a light-heavyweight MMA fighter, and get over her fear of bigger men. The plan was never to get mixed up with her trainer, and it certainly wasn't to fall for him. 

Lance has enough to deal with in his own life so he doesn't need to get involved in someone else's life. But when he meets the woman he's supposed to be training, he knows she has secrets, and he want's to help her let go of what she holds so deep. Soon, though, it's not just her past that he needs to worry about, and his is starting to haunt him too.Question is, can he safe them both? 

I started this series when it the first book was released, and I was instantly a fan. I love these stories and how there's always MMA in them, but how that part of the story doesn't take over the book. Healing Love reminded me how much I love the characters that Abby Niles creates.

I loved how strong Ella was, she didn't just run from her past, she left so that she could get the courage to live at home. I liked that she wasn't just some tough girl that didn't show her fear, she took her fear and did something with it. Honestly she was the character I liked the most from this book because of how courageous she was, and how we got to see the path she took to become that strong. 

Usually it's the heroine that I only sort of like, and the Hero that I fall madly in love with, but this time it was different. Lance was only okay for me. I liked his character but I wanted more from him, there just seemed to be a few things missing from his life that I wanted to know, and some of the things we were told didn't seem like they were focused on enough. 

Overall, this book was just as good as the rest of the series and if you haven't read this author, I strongly recommend her books. The story was amazing, and the characters captured my attention from the first chapter. Even though I felt like I was missing some things about Lance, I definitely recommend this one.
