Novel Review: Back in Black (SBC Fighters, #5) by Lori Foster

Rating (Out of 5): ~3.5
Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance, Sport
Publisher: Berkley (Penguin)
Release Date: 2009
Spoilers?: No.

Goodreads Synopsis:

Never before published from the New York Times bestselling author

Gillian is a PR expert hired to smooth out the rough edges on hot- headed sports club president Drew Black. He's rough, raw and ready for any challenge Gillian throws his way. But which one's going to end up on top?

The Cover:

I actually rather like this cover. It's embarrassing, sure, but I also don't like it cause of whether it's hot or not. I just think that the colors and the body work for the title and represent the book and the character (Drew) well. I think it works for this book.


Drew Black is a crude man, and he’s in charge of the SBC, which is why the higher ups have sent a PR person, Gillian, to work with him and his image.
I liked their relationship, and how they didn’t fight it forever but still tried to deal with his image and how their relationship affected things.
There was also a second couple in this book, who got almost the same amount of focus as the first. Brett is a new and coming fighter, and Audrey is protesting the sport. I liked that Audrey had a past, and how Brett tried to help with it. I also just found them really sweet together. I honestly enjoyed their storyline more than Drew and Gillian’s.
This was the last book in the series, and it ended like it. We got to see a lot of the couples from the other books, and that was nice. It was a very good, very satisfying conclusion. I enjoyed the stories; the characterization and writing were good, and the steamy scenes were very nice. I look forward to starting one of Foster’s later series.
