Contemporary Romance, Erotic Romance
Used to the average Joe, Caitlyn Moore is overwhelmed when the supremely masculine Dante Jones walks into her life and expresses an interest in her. At first she pushes him away, refusing to encourage the attention of a cage fighter. Then she learns Dante has a love ‘em and leave ‘em reputation. What better way to fine-tune her non-existent flirting skills than with a male who won't stick around? But Dante has no intention of being a practice dummy; he's out for all or nothing. Now Caitlyn must accept Dante—violent career and all—or let him go.
Dante "Inferno" Jones has one goal: win the Welterweight Championship. At a time when focus is crucial, the last thing he needs is a distraction. Yet Caitlyn Moore becomes a challenge he can't resist. When the light-hearted pursuit shifts to a battle to win her heart, his focus is shot. Faced with losing the biggest match of his career, Dante must decide if his extreme life also has room for Extreme Love.

An alpha male that is an MMA fighter who has a heart of gold. Who wouldn't want to have him at your side protecting you, defending you, loving you?
Caitlyn "Cait" Moore is a beautiful woman with so many insecurities because of her past weight problem. Being teased in the school is hard as some kids can be really cruel but what about as an adult? Could actions that adults do also affect how a person feels? This is something that Cait has been suffering for awhile but now she is ready to make a difference for other people. She has created a weight loss program to help other young adults and adults on the importance of exercising but also help them choose the right diet plan to help them. So when this muscle man MMA fighter seems interested in her, she retreats. How could an extremely good looking guy be interested in her? He should be interested in a gorgeous model, not one like her who still has some weight to lose.
Dante "Inferno" Jones needs to get ready for a match that will get him to win the Welterweight Championship belt that he has been after for a very long time. But when he sees Cait for the first time at an after-game party, he has no words. She is a beautiful woman with curves in the right places. The only problem is, she is not falling all over him like other women. The first woman that intrigues him and she actually denies him and runs away from him. Well, he is taking that as a challenge. However, Cait's best friend Amy warns him that he needs to go slow with her if he truly wants a relationship with her. Dante sees the passion in Cait, but she has it buried deeply. He can't wait to unwrap it and it will happen, especially after their first kiss.
I am truly amazed with Cait and her determination to help other people. She knows what it is like when there are mean boys telling nasty things to a young girl about her weight. However, I'm also frustrated with her as she seems to go from hot to cold in a matter of seconds. I sometimes wanted to strangle her because she had this hot amazing guy that was practically falling at her feet, but she keeps pushing him away.
As for Dante, he's a fine specimen that had me drooling with his sexiness. I love it when the male character is not only a badass fighter but is also inked up. Dante is someone that doesn't do slow in order to get a girl, but for Cait, he is willing to try. I was happy that he was able to open up to Cait about his childhood and his second father. I loved how protective he was of Cait and defended her, something that no other man before him had done.
EXTREME LOVE was an amazing read that I would not mind rereading it in the near future; this will definitely be staying in my library. I have to say that Ms. Niles definitely did not disappoint. The development of the relationship between Cait and Dante was perfect. The writing style is passionate, artistic and smooth. The plot was filled with enough testosterone, excitement, passion and insecurities between both Cait and Dante. The sexual chemistry between them is sizzling hot from the moment that they touch each you know the sheets will be burning.
EXTREME LOVE kept me immersed and I actually couldn't put it down. The passion these two characters bring forth is unbelievable and, believe me, you will not want to miss reading this story. I will be patiently waiting for the next book to come out later this year.
