About the Book: With the life he's lead and the muscles he's gained, Armie Jacobsen 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 brace, 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. [Synopsis from back cover.]
My Review: Lori Foster is definitely a go-to author for me if I want a tough guy. She knows how to write her men strong, and just bull-headed enough to make it so much fun when they fall in love. And Armie is no different. All throughout the series, I've been desperate to find out what Armie's big secret is, why he wants to hide away from the world - and I won't spoil it for you, but my goodness - it certainly brings the drama! I expected there to be some violence in the past, but trust me, you would have never seen this coming..
At first I wasn't sure what I liked more - the drama surrounding Armie, Rissy's issues, or how the two of them work, and don't work, as a couple. But in the end, I decided it's all of that working together that makes this such a great book. There's a lot going on, but it never feels overwhelming. If anything, it's just the right amount of crazy and worry to keep you on the edge of your seat while you're reading. Honestly, I could not put this down.
I'm also super glad to see that Leese will be getting a chance to star in his own book in the future. I can't wait!
Cover Lovin': Whew. *Fans self* Armie's cover does not disappoint!
Recommendation: While Fighting Dirty can work as a stand-alone, I'd recommend reading the rest of the series first because the other characters feature heavily in this story. Also, you get more of Armie and Rissy's backstory!
Final Rating: FOUR out of FIVE stars (4/5)! Great read, I couldn't put it down! I can't wait to see what Lori Foster does next!
