Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance

Release Date: February 2016

Goodreads Synopsis:

He's the hottest MMA fighter in the game, but one woman is ready to try out a few steamy moves of her own in an unforgettable new novel from New York Times bestselling author Lori Foster...

With the life he's led and the muscles he's gained, Armie Jacobson isn't afraid of anything. Except maybe Merissa Colter's effect on him. It's not just that she's his best friend's little sister. Fact is, she deserves better. Women pursue him for one night of pleasure, and that's all he wants to offer. Until rescuing Merissa from a robbery leads to the most erotic encounter of his life.

Good girl meets bad boy. It's a story that rarely ends well. But Merissa is taking matters into her own hands. No matter how he views himself, the Armie she knows is brave, honorable and completely loyal. And as past demons and present-day danger collide, they're both about to learn what's truly worth fighting for…

The Cover:

Hot. That's what this cover is. And it's very well done. The dark intensity, and the bright green in contrast. I'm a fan.


It’s been a while since I’ve read any of Foster, since the last couple weren’t very good. I needed a break. But now it seems that she’s gotten back to her high point, and I really enjoyed this one. I missed these books.
I didn’t expect this to be so connected to her earlier SBC series, but I loved getting to see those characters again. That was fun.
Armie has always been best friends with Merissa’s older brother, and she’s had a crush on him for years now. But he’s always thought of her as off limits, and he’s never thought of himself as good enough. Merissa decides that she’s going to go for it, and she doesn’t let him back out easily.
I enjoyed their chemistry, and it was fun seeing them forming a solid relationship. She is relentless, and he wants her, and it’s obvious. She doesn’t let him back off, because she wants him and she knows he’s just denying it to protect her. I liked how understanding but strong she stayed about the whole subject, accepting him and pushing only when it was needed. The smut was good, too. And it was fun seeing that even her brother was happy about it, and how their friends were ready to protect if needed.
The serious plot point was actually quite interesting, and I liked how it turned out and was revealed.
I’m looking forward to reading both Denver’s story and Leese’s story next. I’m excited for more.
