I always enjoy reading Lori Foster! There’s something so very charming and captivating about her heroes and heroines, interesting plots and the crossover/spin off series are always my favorite.

UnderPressure-BodyArmor#1-LoriFoster

Her latest series, “Body Armor” and I’m late getting to this series, is just as absorbing and delightful as her other stories. First in the series, “Under Pressure” has ex-MMA fighter Leese Phelps fighting to save his heart. After a rough past, he has managed to get to a point of respectability and make a good life as a bodyguard with Body Armor. And it looks like nothing can protect him from the sassy and on the run Catalina Nicholson.

With secrets that threaten to kill her, Catalina runs right into Leese as he saves her from being kidnapped. Never mind that Body Armor was hired to keep her safe, but as the truth comes out, it looks like Leese is going to keep Cat under lock and key literally and with proximity those sparks of attraction seem to ignite Leese and Cat.

I’ve always loved the way Lori Foster makes sure all bases are covered in her romances, be it supporting characters, closing loops and paying attention to details. I loved how she brings in the characters from her previous series and I thoroughly enjoy reading about them. A definite good read for me.

“Don’t Tempt Me” by Lori Foster is a welcome diversion from her MMA series making the book charming and running a parallel love story is just too much of a temptation to ignore. And I have to say that the story was more than what I had expected and more. Two friends different as night day, yet soul sisters since their childhood, find family, support and love in the most unexpected of circumstances.

Honor Brown and Lexie Perkins have been the best friends since forever and when Honor moves into her new house, Lexie is right beside her supporting Honor as she deals with pain and a bunch of spiteful relatives. The unexpected appearance of her neighbors and especially Jason Guthrie takes Honor’s life into a spin. Jason is one of the most patient, helpful and kind man that she comes across and for Honor whose life’s been a struggle of abandonment and nastiness, believing in Jason is a huge step towards her fight for a normal life.

Don'tTemptMe-GuthrieBrothers#1-LoriFoster-July2017

As Lexie stands next to Honor, having Sullivan Dean on her side is a bonus and the attraction that flares between them is reason enough for these two to explore for a future of togetherness. As a martial teacher, Sullivan has seen a lot of bullying, pain and betrayal and teaching and guiding the teens to a better life is his goal. Spunky Lexie is definitely not on his agenda.

And when danger seems to threaten their women, no one can stand in their way to protect the women they love. Two couples we’ll fall in love for their amazing chemistry and charisma. Two couples that Lori Foster made sure to characterize with their own individuality and not impose over each other, and two couples with patience, strength, care and understanding bring out the best in each other to give us a romantic read that warms the heart.

Lori Foster did a terrific job of keeping these two stories connected and intertwined as needed, and is double the pleasure. I’ve always loved the way Lori Foster makes sure all bases are covered in her romances, be it supporting characters, closing loops and paying attention to details. And “Don’t Tempt Me” book one in new series “Guthrie Brother” is a definite five start read for me.

The Ultimate Series by Lori Foster is a brilliant compilation of a group of friends, protecting their neighborhood, engaging young kids to keep them out of trouble, creating a haven for troubled teenagers, and throwing muscle in the ring when called upon. And in between all this, they have their own personal demons to face and fight for the love of their lives.

FightingDirty-UltimateSeries4-LoriFoster

Book four in the series, “Fighting Dirty”, finally gives Armie Jacobson his story of pain, redemption and love. As a badass MMA fighter and being the best, he’s got girls falling for him, but his heart beats only for his Rissy aka Merissa Colter. And of course she’s got be his best friend’s sister.

Merissa Colter is classy, independent, tough and a nurturer by nature. She loves her group of friends and she loves Armie to death. Of course convincing Armie of that fact is altogether another fight that she needs to muscle through. Armie and Rissy make an engaging couple what with their witty banter and chemistry flaming the sheets.

I’ve always loved the way Lori Foster makes sure all bases are covered in her romances, be it supporting characters, closing loops and paying attention to details. The whole concept of young MMA fighters taking care of their community is rich in education as well as giving the readers a captivating romance to warm the heart.

As a recap, The Ultimate Series by Lori Foster is a brilliant compilation of a group of friends, protecting their neighborhood, engaging young kids to keep them out of trouble, creating a haven for troubled teenagers, and throwing muscle in the ring when called upon…and their stories, tryst with destiny continues as Stack Hannigan finds himself surrendering to the love of his life Vanity Baker.

Vanity has made a deal with “The Wolf” to a one night of passion between the sheets, a casual no strings friends with benefits fling, even as she knows for a fact that one night with Stack is just not enough for her. Stack has been tip toeing around Vanity since times long and he knows for a fact that sex with her would be out of this world, but little does he realize that he has now world without her.

ToughLove-MMAUltimateLove3-LoriFoster-Aug2015

A young woman having lost all in her life, trying to make a new life with a group of overprotective friends, facing loneliness with a zeal for life and yet grabbing the grateful moments with all positivity, Vanity Baker is just one of the most lovable people you would encounter. She makes tough love fun, attainable and utterly delicious and she just gives that much and more back to Stack. And Stack with his tainted past, yet honorable upbringing, protective and humble, is just the perfect match for Vanity, despite his temporary bullheadedness!

Since the time I’ve been reading Lori Foster, her innumerable and memorable books, I truly believe that Stack and Vanity are her best of the lot, at least in my humble readings! The teasing banter, the ease Vanity has with making friends, smart and loyal to the bone, kind and generous, Lori took time creating Vanity with care and depth. She made a great impression with giving writing space for Stack’s family and the building of the relationship between them and Vanity. I was so partial to Cannon’s story, but Stack comes a very close second.

Witty dialogues and teasing banter, trust and friendship on the line, romance and lust burning hearts, “Tough Love” sure tests the emotions and power of love…. and gives the readers an unforgettable love story.

The Ultimate Series by Lori Foster is a brilliant compilation of a group of friends, protecting their neighborhood, engaging young kids to keep them out of trouble, creating a haven for troubled teenagers, and throwing muscle in the ring when called upon.

No matter how strong he holds on to his heart, MMA fighter Denver Lewis is waging a losing battle with Cherry Peyton as she claims him as his own and had been holding a torch for him for the longest time. As Denver and Cherry finally give into their desires, circumstances put Cherry under Denver’s roof and protection. But a traumatic past has Cherry on the edge and having fought her own battles for a long time, accepting the help of her friends or Denver does not come easy to her.

HoldingStrong-Ultimate2-Mar 2015

When her past comes searching for her, literally stalking and terrorizing her, Cherry has to trust Denver to protect her and muscle his way into gaining her trust. As an independent, charming, and a loyal friend to all, Lori Foster does a fine job of building a character with depth, courage and a big heart of love in Cherry. And Denver with his ultra smooth moves, strength and a heart of gold, he would do anything to protect the love of his life.

The Ultimate Series is a testament to unconditional love and support that exists among this group of young adults, always ready with a helping hand, and fiercely protective of their own. “Holding Strong” is another captivating story with passion and love, wit and sassiness and a league of unconditional friendship and support. Lori Foster continues the Ultimate Series with her usual flair of thrill, charisma and enticement.
