Tag Archive: The Ultimate Series


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.

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.

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.
