Sheri's Review of Cain by L.B. Dunbar ~ BLOG TOUR ~


Grab this hot MMA fighter today!



“I hate that I love you,” she said. “You left me.” “I lost you, there’s a difference. Now that I found you, I intend to keep you.” Lost. I’d tasted the sweetest fruit of temptation, and I wanted another bite. I had promised myself before, but once wasn’t enough. The savory flavor of her lingered long after I’d lost her. Contending with the pressure to return to the fight, in order to prove myself to my father and the world, I had to let her go. Found. It has been a year. Sofie Vincentia and I had played a dangerous game. For one night, we pretended, only to discover our farce was real. I’d lost her, but I hadn’t stopped searching, hoping for her return. I was used to getting what I wanted, so when she didn’t come to me, I had to go after her. This would be the greatest fight of my life.

"I am my brother's keeper".
This motto has been embedded in Cain's head since he was a small child. He even has it tattooed on his arm, but sometimes that protective motto goes out the window.

Paradise Found: Cain is the second book in L.B. Dunbar's Paradise Found series and tackles Cain (Abel's brother -see book one) trials and tribulations. It continues where book one left off, where both brothers  are left fighting each other in the fight of all fights. Brother vs Brother, Alpha vs Beta, Favorite  vs Second Best. But what happens when one brother has given up the fight? When there seems to be more to life than making his heartless father proud? Cain is ready for a different kind of fight and it's not in the ring.

Sophie knew coming to the fight was a mistake but something about Cain draws her in like a month to a flame. But when a chance encounter with the delicious fighter seems to break her strong will, can Sophie survive his advances? Can she get over what he did to her in the past and look towards the future with Cain? Or will life's circumstances get in her way?

Both Cain and Sophie soon start this game of cat and mouse, with the cat prevailing more times than the mouse. But when paradise seems to perfect, trouble rears it's ugly head and leading both down a all to familiar path of lies, heartbreak and let downs.

 Can Cain break away from his father and win back the one person he let slip away?  Will Sophie let Cain be the man of her dreams and be the person she always knew he could be? Or will a certain set of divorce papers be the end for both?

Please know that I received this ARC in return for my honest review. With that being said, I much rather Cain's story over Able's. Something about a damaged Alpha just breaks my heart and makes you want to root for him. I especially loved how Cain was gentle and loving with Sophie but a total tool and tough guy with everyone else.  There was a short novella that proceeded Able's book that gave the reader the beginning of Cain and Sophie's story. I did not read it but there is enough backstory in this book that the reader can get away not reading it.  You can even read this book as a stand alone if you really want to.

All previous characters make appearances in this book and believe me when I say that although this book has a HEA, there are a few twists that totally didn't see coming.

Total 5 star read.


Start the series now! Abel is now available!

About the Author:


I'd love to say I've written for 10,000 hours, and that makes me a pro. But I can't say that. What I can say is I had a story in my head that wouldn't go away. I thought typing it in my computer would be the end of things, but it only led to another story and another. I love reading, so characters in my head isn't something new. What is new is my creation of them. Hope you enjoy my favorites as much as I do. Happy reading!
