Knocked Out by Love by Abby Niles
•Friends to Lovers?
After finding out her husband had not only been cheating on her, but got the other woman pregnant, Scarlett took a trip to the Bahamas with her best friend Delaney. While flirting with a guy at the bar, who is she confronted by? None other than her husbands best friend Brody, who probably knew and covered for him; “bros before hoes”. After laying into him and telling him to leave her alone, she and Delaney go to more bars.
Brody “The Iron” Minton a heavyweight MMA fighter is in the Bahamas for his little sister’s wedding. When he sees Scarlett flirting with a guy at the bar without her wedding ring on, he steps in and makes the guy leave. Which gets him on the hot end of Scarlett, but he doesn’t care, she’s married to his best friend. Brody has loved but had to fight his feelings for Scarlett because she’s been married to his best friend. Later that night, she’s clearly drunk at another bar with her best friend who tries to stop her from leaving with some random guy. Brody steps in to stop her from doing something she’ll regret later. He ends up carrying her to his room and dumps her into a cold shower. After he gets her settled on the couch Brody calls her husband Ryan to tell him something is off with his wife, only he’s totally shocked when he hears another woman in the background and hangs up. He’s figured out what Scarlett’s issue is, her husband has been cheating on her; what a stupid man!
Scarlett only wants to feel desired again and asks Brody if he’ll help her learn to flirt again. How can he have the woman he’s wanted for so long within his grasp and not succumb? But if he doesn’t help her, she’ll go it alone and he can’t have her doing that either. Is he strong enough to help her and still honor ‘bro code’~ not getting together with his best friends ex? You’ll have to read KNOCKED OUT BY LOVE to find out.
Although this is the 5th book of the Love to the Extremes series, it’s the first one I’ve read and I totally fell in love with it! (How could you not love Brody?) I will be going back to read the others to see what I’ve missed, however this is also a standalone HEA, but be ready for an emotional roller coaster ride you’ll take while reading; it’s definitely worth it!

Brody Minton has loved Scarlett Harris for years. But she’s his best friend’s wife, so he’s worked hard to keep his distance. Hearing the marriage is over shouldn’t change anything. Only an ass would make a move on a friend’s ex… Except Scarlett wants help getting back in the dating game, and Brody’s torn. If he helps her out, he can keep an eye on her and guard her vulnerable heart. But having the woman he’s longed for for years in arms’ reach is hell on a man’s restraint, no matter how iron strong his will.
But loving Scarlett is only half the fight.
All Scarlett Harris wants is to get away for a while and rethink her life after filing for divorce from her lying, cheating bastard of a husband. The gorgeous Bahamas sounds like the perfect escape, except she’s booked in the very resort Brody “The Iron” Minton is staying at for his sister’s wedding. Now her ex’s best friend is dogging her every move, and is a witness to her first pathetic attempts at flirting in years. If Brody isn’t going to leave her alone, then she’ll just recruit him to help get her reacquainted with her single self.
NOTE: Although a part of a series, Knocked Out By Love can be read as a standalone novel. Each novel features a new hero and heroine!
