About the book:

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…

My Review:

Finally got Armie’s story!!! I’ve been a huge fan of Armie’s in every other book in this series so I’ve been eagerly awaiting his story. And I have to say I loved it. The chemistry between Armie and Rissy is sizzling and if you’re not in love with them already, you will be by the end of this story. Both characters are superbly fleshed out and there was very little that I disliked about either. Rissy is almost the perfect heroine. She’s smart, strong, independent but she doesn’t over do it in anyway. She’s smart about trusting her instincts and reacting in a smart manner to the threats she faces without feeling the need to be overly independent or overly dependent on someone to protect her. She also had that perfect blend of trust and vulnerability over Armie’s reputation with the ladies so that she was so relatable. Armie of course is amazing. I love that he’s protective but not in a domineering manner. He’s also a sweetheart to everyone and I love the way he looks after everyone. What kept him from being too perfect and like a relatable guy is that he has his bad days. He gets moody but he realizes it, accepts it and then makes up for it.

The storyline itself was engaging. You know who all the bad guys are but there are just enough surprises that keep it interesting. There’s also the humor I’ve come to expect from Lori Foster and of course the rest of the MMA fighters play their own supporting roles. I love seeing them and can’t wait to read everyone else’s stories.
