Returning to Kansas, Mac is only there temporarily. Mac has his baggage. Gayle doesn't make attachments. Are they willing to risk it all?

The start was shaky because I didn't like the way Mac (an MMA fighter) was intimidated by Gayle. When he came out his shell, it was much better. Gayle w ...more

Winning Love by Abby Niles is the third book in her Love to the Extreme series but it can easily be read as a stand-alone novel.

In Winning Love, Mac travels back to his home state of Kansas, to help his friend Lance train. Enter Gayle. We know right away that Mac has some issues going on from the way he acts.

Pretty good. Characters were truly likeable and their hang ups were realistic. Their responses to anything that challenged their 'walls' was really interesting and almost polar opposites. What I liked is that neither tried to delude themselves of their feelings or turn to a-hole behaviour just to pr ...more

I absolutely loved every moment of this book. I think the biggest reason why I fell so much in love with it is because of how real it felt.

About the author

Abby Niles

Ever since Abby Niles picked up her first Sweet Valley High book in sixth grade and fell in love with Elizabeth and Todd, sheÂ’s been hooked on romance. By the time she reached high school, she was devouring meatier romances with pirates, cowboys and knights. She never imagined that those years of reading would one day lead to her becoming a published author. In her late twenties, after having twins and becoming a stay-at-home mom, she started doodling stories to keep her sanity. Next thing she knew, she was actually submitting to publishing houses. And was immediately rejected. That didnÂ’t stop her though. She found some kickass critique partners, honed her craft, and continued submitting. And eventually sold. Today, she juggles work, being a single mom, and writing. ItÂ’s not always easy, but hey, who said life was easy? Abby is the author of the contemporary MMA Love to the Extreme series. Extreme Love and Fighting Love are available in both digital and print. Winning Love is scheduled for August 2014. She is also the author of the dark paranormal romance series The Awakening: Aidan, The Awakening: Liam,and The Awakening: Britton. Both series are with Entangled Publishing. She also has a geeky romantic comedy, Defying Convention, with Carina Press. She is represented by Maureen Walters at Curtis Brown, LTD
