About the Book: An up-and-coming MMA fighter wants more than just one night from a woman fleeing her past in New York Times bestselling author Lori Foster's irresistible new novel 

Heavyweight fighter Denver Lewis plays real nice, but he doesn't share. That's why he's been avoiding top-notch flirt Cherry Peyton. But a man can only resist those lush curves for so long. Their encounter surpasses all his fantasies, bringing out protective urges that Cherry's about to need more than she knows… 

Denver's combination of pure muscle and unexpected tenderness has been driving Cherry wild. Yet no sooner does she get what she's been craving than old troubles show up on her doorstep. And this time, Cherry can't hide behind a carefree facade. Because the man by her side is one who'll fight like hell to keep her safe…if only she'll trust him enough to let him… [Description from]

My Review: Lori Foster is one of those authors I closely follow. When she talked about this new series at a conference I attended last year, I was hooked - I even pre-ordered the first book right then and there! And when the chance to review the second book came up, of course I couldn't pass it up.

This book had me addicted from the very beginning. I was toting my iPad everywhere just in case I would get some time, no matter how small, to read a few more pages. Denver and Cherry's story was a roller coaster ride, and I would gladly ride it again and again. Falling in love is hard enough, but Cherry's past is back to haunt her, making everything more difficult for our love birds. This couple had to go through so much, including their own trust issues - not to mention Denver's macho attitude getting in the way more than once, - but you can see how amazing they are together, and how good it will be when they finally work everything out.

I cannot wait to read more of this series. The prequel story is currently free on Amazon, so of course I had to download that and will be reading it ASAP. Don't miss your chance to check out Denver and Cherry's amazing story!

The Series So Far:
Hard Knocks (0.5)
No Limits (1)
Holding Strong (2)

Cover Lovin': Woo, boy. Nice cover. And it definitely fits in with the rest of the series.

Recommendation: For fans of Lori Foster, and for those currently obsessed with MMA/fighter romances (or those that want to be).

Final Rating: FIVE out of FIVE stars (5/5)! Loved it. Couldn't put it down. Need more, right now.

Happy Reading!
