Product Description

About the Author

L.B. Dunbar loves the original legend of King Arthur. Inspired by this classic tale, she pulled over to the side of the road to take notes when it hit her that if King Arthur lived today, he'd be a rock star. A lover of fairy tales, myths, legends, and anything with happily ever after, she loves to read and write contemporary romance. Her Legendary Rock Stars series is complete with the final tale: The Trials of Guinevere DeGrance, but the story begins with The Legend of Arturo King. She also wrote The Sensations Collection, which includes five stand alones based on the five senses in a small town setting near Lake Michigan. Raised on one side of that lake, she grew up in Michigan, but now lives on the other side, in Chicago. Mother to four, wife to the one and only, and teacher to hundreds of former students, she looks forward to sharing more stories in the future.

I've loved everything LB Dunbar has written so far, and this is good too! Its a little more NA/YA than previous books, but still has LB Dunbar's wonderful writing style and great story - drawing on the biblical Cain and Abel.
Abel is the younger brother of Cain. He's been overlooked, discarded as the lesser son by his father, and lacking confidence with girls. Abel sees his chance to get to know Elma, and and seizes it - though she is reluctant. Both characters were developed over the course if the story, along with likable side characters. Although Abel and his brother are fighters, for me the story was more about the fight outside the ring, for love, confidence in ability, and change.
I'm looking forward to Cains book.

Abel has always been second best in everything; his family, against his fighter brother, the girls, the fights, but now Abel wants to be seen. He wants to make a name for himself. He wants to finally get the girl he has been crazy about, Elma. But Elma has one thing on her mind, to find out what happened when her brother was killed. But will she open her eyes and see Abel the way he sees her? And even if she can, will outside forces, lies and betrayal, mean that this is this one fight that will destroy both of them?

"I’d been fighting the wrong fight. Without realizing it, the thing I needed to fight for wasn’t in the ring. It was in my heart. It was Abel."

Wow!! What an intense, unique, thrilling and emotional story. So unlike any other fighter story you have ever read, this story will grip you from the beginning until the very end.

"There was a girl I wanted, but she didn’t want me. I took that lack of reciprocated desire and used it to fuel me. I was tired of going unnoticed. I was tired of being put down. It was my turn to fight back. The ring was my answer."

Both Abel and Elma were such complex characters. Each with their own demons, insecurities and dramas but also each with their own strengths. Elma was destroyed by the death of her brother but after the grief has passed she uses her anger and determination to find out what has happened. She had courage, determination, strength but also had passion and love that she desperately wanted to give to someone. Abel, in my eyes, was always the alpha; his personality shone through. He was brave and strong but he was also so considerate and caring and didn't care if that made him weak in other people's eyes.

It’s known that I’m not a huge fan of the “fighter” books and I seriously thought twice about requesting this one. The author swayed me; I have always enjoyed LB Dunbar’s books so I thought why not? I’m glad I did. This feels different from her usual style and not in a bad way at all. Initially I enjoyed the book, perhaps the first half I found less enticing than the second half. More so for that reason of it being a book about a fighter than anything else. I got myself over that little hump though and by the time I was getting to about 50ish% I was utterly dragged into the storyline and really enjoyed it to the very end.
I found Beta/Abel a character that I didn’t immediately jump on board with; rather I had a slow appreciation for his character that ultimately ended with me really liking him. He had some flaws of course; I mean what main character doesn’t? But they are easy to get over. He has this kind of slow reveal I think and it’s endearing to watch it unravel. The reasoning behind it is all too familiar and the fighter name he has definitely suited his character. Now I found our other main character, Elma, a little harder to warm too. Whilst I understood her reasoning behind many of her actions it didn’t mean that I liked them.
I absolutely loved the underlying story of the Cane and Abel persuasion. Honestly I think this is why I fall for LB Dunbar’s work. There is so much more going on than the surface story. She can take something historic and turn it into something that is extremely current and relevant in this day and age. Oh how she does it so very well. Subject matter is quite heavy and there could be a trigger or two in here but LB offset all that drama with some delicious little bits of intimacy.

Paradise Fought: Abel by L.B. Dunbar ticked all of my boxes and that was before I had opened the front cover and I must admit that actually dragging my eyes away from the cover was verging on a hardship, really I could have looked at that cover model a lot long that my husband would have considered appropriate!!!
But once I delved into the story I was blown away by the most beautiful story and the most fantastic man…Abel was so much more that I had anticipated and I love a good fighter but what I got was a fighter that had spent most of his life fighting life itself, fighting to just be who he is.
Abel was used to being on the back foot, used to being the kid that was disregarded and in some cases that might not be a bad thing but when his father dished out not just praise and attention but his vitriol it was Cain, his older brother that got it all.
The lack of care, for want of a better word leaves its mark on Abel and he struggles with not just self-esteem but the social interactions that a guy his age would normally take for granted.
So this bashful man is happy in the wings so to speak, sheltering in the periphery, secretly training to be MMA fighter just like he older brother. But when he meets Elma, there is more than meets the eye between the two of them.
Abel is certainly drawn towards her and he seems to have the knack of being in the right place at the right time when it comes to helping her out of tricky situations but can she help him too?
Elma has secrets, she also has a reputation, warranted or not she uses it to get exactly what she wants.
