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.
The boy next door, inspiring career… until I didn’t.
He hates me. I deserve that.
They say you have to fight for what you want… What they don’t tell you… is it’ll cost you more than you're willing to give to reach the top.
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 conform. When a new neighbor arrives next door, this little fighter has met her match. He’s just as competitive as her and claims to be a better fighter then she is.
Camden Steel has always felt pulled towards Tate since they first met. She’s not like the other girls and that drawls him to her. Over time, they share their love of fighting and eventually involve into the love of each other’s lives. Or so he thought until the day she left him and never looked back. Then four years later, she shows up back in his life and at his gym. Are there still unresolved feelings between the two or have they finally moved on from each other?
First of all, Tate is one strong female. When life threw her a different path than she always dreamed, she finally said enough is enough and sought after what it is she needs. To be a fighter. She’s determined, strong, fierce, loyal and tenacious. She knows she wants to become one of the top female fighters and she knows she wants Camden back in her life and she goes at them full force.
What I really enjoyed the most out of this story was the emotions that caused a very thin line between love and hate. Camden harbors very strong feelings over her leaving him and he’s full of resentment yet he knows that she’s always been the one for him. I could feel the passion between the two. That love/hate line that just confuses the hell out of you.
“Hate and sexual tension race through my veins, as my heart longs for her. I both hate and love her.”
I also really liked the secondary characters. Each and every one of them played an important role in both Tate and Camden’s life and although there are times where they might be struggling emotionally, at the end they are all very loyal to each other and unite.
Overall, I enjoyed this book. If you are looking for a strong female lead who just happens to be a fighter and goes after what she knows she needs in her life, then this is for you!
Climbing off the bed I grab her by the ankle, jerking her to the edge of the bed roughly.
She jumps awake panicked. Her wild, frantic eyes finding mine.
“Camden, what the fuck?”
“I thought I made it clear I didn’t want you to move, I wanted you to sleep on me.” My voice hard and accusing, all the feelings I felt that morning after she left when I was eighteen surfacing. She jerks her foot, but I tighten my hold. “I wasn’t joking.”
Bending down I grab her by the hips and throw her naked body over my shoulder.
“What are you doing? Have you lost your mind?”
“I have, and it’s because I fell for the little girl next door when I was a fucking kid,” I bark.
Yanking the curtains to the floor to ceiling window open I set her down, her back facing me.
“Put your hands on the window,” I instruct harshly.
She obeys surprisingly, and looks over her shoulder. “What are you doing?”
Spreading her ass cheeks I push the head of my dick into her quickly, needing to feel her now. She takes in a sharp breath, her fingers tensing against the glass as I shove into her with so much force her head bangs against the window.
My chest rising and falling rapidly, I caress the shell of her ear with my lips.
“I know what you’re thinking.”
Her forehead pressed against the window she turns it, looking me in the eye.
“That I’m possessive, controlling, crazy.” I thrust into her hard and her mouth parts with pleasure. “You made me this way, you made me the crazy man that wants to love you.”
Pressing my back onto hers, I interlock our fingers on the window, my face in the crook of her neck.
“Let me love you, let me be the crazy motherfucker that loves you.”
She nods, her breath fogging the glass as I continue to thrust into her.
