Review: Slow Ride – Lori Foster

Review: Slow Ride – Lori Foster

Slow Ride was a very nice slow romance, and I really appreciated that. Both because Ronnie had been through so much she didn’t believe in love anymore, and because Jack was so patient. He just knew waiting was going to be worth it! Story: Ronnie was the kind of heroine that knows what she wants, and she usually goes after it with no qualms. She also knows well what she doesn’t want – and she was sure she didn’t want Jack once she realized she’d see him more than just for one night. Slow Ride started with a chance meeting, then went on to have Ronnie and Jack working together. There was danger in Slow Ride, a mysterious man following […]

Review: Cooper’s Charm – Lori Foster

Review: Cooper’s Charm – Lori Foster

Cooper’s Charm was a sweet, hot romance, in which two sisters needed some lovin’ even if they were doing alright on their own. Story: I really enjoyed Phoenix and what Cooper’s Charm managed to help her do to get her life back on track. However, the fact that Ridley, Phoenix’s sister also got her story in the same book made me a little bit sad. I would have enjoyed for each sister to have her full story – not a two-for-one at the beginning of a series. That being said, Cooper’s Charm is a solid beginning, and I loved the setting, the lake, the RV park, the fact that Cooper did all his best to make sure his guests were […]

Review: Fast Burn – Lori Foster

Review: Fast Burn – Lori Foster

Fast Burn was an utterly satisfying end to the Body Armor series, and I absolutely loved Brand and Sahara. Story: Fast Burn had everything I love in a romantic suspense story! There was heat, of course. But there was also a lot of chemistry. And quite a bit of reluctance. Brand didn’t want to work for Sahara, he wanted to date her. And Sahara wanted Brand any way she could get him – and she really wanted him for Body Armor. As they are both very strong characters, that made for some great dialogues with a repartee that made me both laugh and smile at times. The suspense was palpable, especially because Sahara was kidnapped at the very beginning of […]

Review: Close Contact – Lori Foster

Review: Close Contact – Lori Foster

Close contact was a romance with a lot of danger, but there was humor and friendship as well. The hotness between Maxi and Miles was off the charts. Story: Maxi thought she was done with Miles, especially when she moved to her late grandmother’s house in the countryside. Close Contact soon showed me that Maxi needed more than just physical backup, though. When she woke up outside in the middle of the night, with no memory of how she got there, she went to the only place she knew she would find someone to help her keep safe. Miles wasn’t sure what to think when Maxi was sitting in his boss’ office one morning. She was all disheveled and looked […]

Review: Worth the Wait – Lori Foster

Review: Worth the Wait – Lori Foster

Worth the Wait bears its title very well! I loved this story, even though it followed one main couple, plus another couple who got less time allotted to them. The writing is so good, and there’s some well-timed suspense as well as the romance. Hogan had been through the wringer more than once, and Worth the Wait was really about how he was worth waiting for. Violet was attracted to Hogan, but she didn’t want to be just another notch on his bedpost. I was intrigued by Hogan when I first met him in Don’t Tempt Me, and his story was really good. He had quite a bit of thinking through his past to do, before he could completely open […]

Review: Murphy’s Law – Lori Foster

Review: Murphy’s Law – Lori Foster

Murphy’s Law was fun! And sweet. And romantic. And filled with suspense and danger, too. Foster never fails to delight me, and I have to say that Murphy’s Law hit the right spot. Ashley and Quinton were both characters I could relate to, even if they are very different from me. Ashley really touched me, because she was such an independent woman, but still managed to ask for help when she needed it. And she definitely knew when she should stop being stubborn, and make sure she and the people she cared about would stay safe… at least as safe as possible. The friendships in Murphy’s Law spoke to me as well, and I enjoyed wedding planning, hanging out, being […]

Review: Hard Justice – Lori Foster

Review: Hard Justice – Lori Foster

Hard Justice had all the romance, suspense, friendship, hotness and action I have come to love in Foster’s novels! Both Justice and Fallon were characters I enjoyed from when I first met them in Hard Justice. Fallon was a heroine who could have been impossible to enjoy or relate to, but even with her sheltered life and the tragedy in her past, she was a positive, strong character I loved more with each page. Justice wasn’t an unknown to me, as he first showed up in the Ultimate series, and I have to say that he really shone in his role as both bodyguard and romantic lead. The suspense in Hard Justice kept me guessing, and I really enjoyed that […]

Review: Under Pressure – Lori Foster

Review: Under Pressure – Lori Foster

Under Pressure was very slow-paced, and for quite a bit of it, the only characters present were Leese and Cat. The mystery and the suspense was well done, though, and, of course, Foster’s writing impeccable. While I found the suspense and the mystery part of Under Pressure to be well executed, I also found it to be a very slow read. It picked up a bit in the middle, then slowed back down until near the end. Cat was a bit too naïve for my taste in the beginning, but as she shared a bit more of herself with Leese, I got her reasoning. She was trusting in some ways, and extremely wary in others. And she really needed to […]

Review: Don’t Tempt Me – Lori Foster

Review: Don’t Tempt Me – Lori Foster

Don’t Tempt Me is all about new beginnings, courage, friendship and family. Sometimes, you grow up with a great family surrounding you, other times, you just have to make your own family – surround yourself by people you love and who love you back. The latter was the case for Honor in Don’t Tempt Me. Because she moved to stay closer to her dying grand-dad, Honor really didn’t have much tame for herself. Between her job, going to the nursery home in the middle of the night and trying to do some work on her house, she was a very busy lady. She still managed to get closer to her neighbors little by little, though, in big part thanks to […]

Review: Fighting Dirty – Lori Foster

Review: Fighting Dirty – Lori Foster

Fighting Dirty is as close to perfection as a story can be! Armie and Rissy *sighs* Fighting Dirty is among my most anticipated books for 2016, and Lori Foster outdid herself! I have been longing for Armie and Merissa’s story ever since I met them in the first Ultimate book. The tension between the two of them kept increasing and in their own book, it was palpable. I loved getting to now both of them better, especially how they reacted when they were under pressure. Merissa is a very strong heroine, she was truly put through a lot in Fighting Dirty, but she took most of it in stride, and that made her very dear to me. There is even […]
