Fighting Love

Abby Niles


Talk about kicking a fighter while he’s down. 

Former Middleweight champion and confirmed bachelor Tommy “Lightning” Sparks has lost it all: his belt, his career, and now his home. After the devastating fire, he moves in with his drama-free best friend, Julie. One encounter changes everything and Julie is no longer the girl he’s spent his life protecting but a desirable woman he wants to take to his bed. Knowing his reputation, he’s determined to protect Julie more than ever—from himself.

Veterinarian Julie Rogers has been in love with Tommy since she was ten, but would love to get over the man. She’s quiet nights at home and a glass of wine. He’s clubbing all night and shots of tequila. As friends they work great. As a couple? No way in hell. She just can’t get her heart to agree. When she starts spending time with another fighter, the man who’s always treated her like a sister is suddenly not being very brotherly and enflames her body like never before.

Can two childhood friends make a relationship work, or will they lose everything because they stopped FIGHTING LOVE.

Abby Niles: What Makes MMA so Hot?

 Yeah, I’m not going to sit here and list all the reasons I find the MMA/UFC the hottest sport out there. I’m going to SHOW you.



What girl doesn’t like some seriously awesome ink? This girl loves it!!!




I’m dead serious. Pull up some videos. (I’ve attached two up above) Watch. Enjoy. You’ll understand. Theirs is just something especially hot about the speed of their punches, kicks…their movements. The strength. I could sit and watch these men train all day.

I think the pictures say enough, but I’ll elaborate. Two strong men who are about to enter the cage together, facing off before their fight. The intimidation. The refusal to back down. The you’re-going-down-stare. The you’ve-done-way-too-much-bitch-talk-and-pissed-me-off-and-I-don’t-want-to-wait-for-the-cage-to-kick-your-ass shove. Dana White having to step in between the two fighters because it’s not time to brawl yet. Freaking grr, baby.

About the author:


Abby Niles has always loved to read. After having twins and becoming a stay-at-home mom, she started doodling stories to keep her sanity. She didn’t plan for writing to become an obsession, but it did. Today, she juggles work, home life, and writing. It’s not always easy, but hey, who said life was easy? When Abby’s not writing, you can find her playing ‘Just Dance’ with her kids or trying to catch up on her never-ending to-be-read list.
