Can one woman handle two dominant men intent on staking their claim?
An Invitation to Eden Release for May! Welcome to Eden, a series from 27 of the biggest names in romance. Fight for Me is a sizzling story from New York Times Bestselling author Sharon Page…

I had to drop out of college to raise my son after his dad, bad boy MMA fighter Ryder King, and I broke up. Ryder is so haunted by demons he won’t let me into his heart. Fame, fortune, and fighting didn’t bring him any peace, and I knew, for the sake of our child, I had to leave him.

That’s when I started seeing Ryder’s best friend, Xavier Malone, a former fighter who built a billion dollar empire. Xavier is powerful and handsome, but also caring and wonderful with my son. We were friends at first and now I’m falling for him—but I’m scared to commit.

Then I receive an invitation to the island of Eden, a luxurious resort where I can live my every sensual fantasy. I’m certain Xavier sent it. But after I leave my son with my mom and fly to Eden, I discover I’m in the middle of a grudge match between Xavier and Ryder. They are going to fight for me: inside the ring in a charity match, and outside it—where they both plan to seduce the pants off me. But I have a surprise for them too.

Fight for Me is also a Yardley College Alumni story. For readers 18 years of age +
Unfortunately, this one got off to a rocky start for me.  The first chapter is titled Xavier - so I assumed it was from his point of view.  It's not.  It's just where we meet him for the first time.  Those of you who are not a fan of love triangles - this is one you should steer clear of as well.  She does pick just one in the end, so the whole book revolves around this love triangle.  Now, the triangles don't bother me all the time and this one was handled much better than most.  Everyone was very in the know about the circumstances, and she didn't try to play one against the other - they did that to themselves.

The storyline of the book was very exciting.  I love the concept of a fantasy island hidden away in the Bermuda Triangle.  I may have to try more from the Invitation to Eden series.  The island offers any type of fantasy you could want - they even have a dungeon.  About half way through we are introduced to the suspense element of the story and I absolutely loved the way it was written.  Drawn out just enough to make keep me reading and never really slowing down or dragging.  The wrap up for everything at the end was just about perfect.

There is some light BDSM play, but nothing very hard core.  It was more about exploring sensations than anything else.  But this is also where the book lost me a little bit again.  Most of the sexual encounters seemed very rushed and didn't always flow well.  The scenes were often set up nicely, but I just didn't pull a lot of passion out of them.
