Hard Knocks by Lori Foster

hard knocksTitle: Hard Knocks

Series: Ultimate bk .5 (this is a prequel to kick the series off)

Author: Lori Foster

Genre: Contemporary

Power. Brute strength. Unforgettable moves. It’s no wonder Harper Gates hasn’t been able to get her fling with Gage “Savage” Ringer out of her head. Months have passed since she laid eyes—or any other body parts—on him. Months without a word of contact… until, sidelined by injury, he comes back to town.

Staying focused on his training seemed like a smart move to Gage, even if he thought about Harper every day. Seeing her again only makes it clear how much is at stake. He’s got one night to earn back her trust. One night to show her that behind his breathtaking skill and ripped body is a man who’ll give her everything she needs.

Thoughts: The very first book of Lori’s that I read was an SBC book and I was hooked on her writing. So I was super excited when she announced that she would be coming back to the world of MMA fighting and the SBC.

This is a quick novella to get you back in the action of this world.

I liked how Gage and Harper didn’t immediately fall back into each others arms as there was a huge misunderstanding between them. Once that was resolved they were able to express their feelings, both about what had happened when Gage left and how he left and where they were going now.

Grade B+
