Series: Ultimate Series Book #1
Author: Lori Foster
Blurb: Cannon Colter is quintessential hero material: chiseled jawline, shredded body—the works. He’s also the guy who rescued Yvette Sweeny from kidnappers, only to put an end to her romantic dreams. These days, she’s older, smarter, determined to face whatever life throws her way. Even the prospect of sharing a house and business with Cannon.
Cannon knew Yvette wanted him three years ago. But she was young—and some things are worth waiting for. Thrown together by her grandfather’s legacy, he realizes how deep Yvette’s scars really go, and how much danger lurks in their quiet town. As pent-up desire explodes between them, protecting her becomes the only fight that matters. And he’ll break all the rules to do it….
Thoughts: “I want to give you everything you’re supposed to have.”
His gaze dropped to her mouth. “What if I’m supposed to have you?”
I love MMA themed books, and this is one of the best out there. There was so much sexual tension between these characters that you could just feel their intense need and desire for each other. Foster does an amazing job of fanning those flames of desire – the story just keeps building up to the climax, but without any dull lulls in the story. Not only did I fall in love with the characters of both Cannon and Yvette, but Foster has managed to throw in a whole cast of characters that I can’t wait to see more of in future books. The characters were fun, entertaining, witty, and supportive of each other – just like a family should be.
Such an excellent and well-written book – I cannot wait to read the next in this series!! Loved it! Definitely one of my favorite reads this year!
**As a side note, there is a short prequel to this series, Hard Knocks that is out currently**
