Lori Foster’s new series, Body Armor is a good intro to her new world. It’s an MMA series, and while not the best I’ve read, was full of suspense and hotness that is typical of Lori Foster. Foster is an A-List romance author and her suspense is a must read.
Under Pressure is a spin-off from the Ultimate series. Leese, introduced in that series leaves MMA to become a bodyguard. Not original, I’ve read a few of these types of romances, so while the writing is top notch, I wish it had a little bit more to it. The book is full of phenomenally original characters, though, and it’s wild ride from the beginning to the end. I liked the interplay between the couple, and while the romance happened quickly, it was romantic. It’s definitely a series you’ll want to check out if you like the MMA romances or bodyguard romances.

He can protect anything except his heart
Leese Phelps’s road hasn’t been an easy one, but it’s brought him to the perfect job — working for the elite Body Armor security agency. And what his newest assignment lacks in size, she makes up for in fire and backbone. But being drawn to Catalina Nicholson is a dangerous complication, especially since it could be the very man who hired Leese who’s threatening her.
What Catalina knows could get her killed. But who’d believe the sordid truth about her powerful stepfather? Beyond Leese’s ripped body and brooding gaze is a man of impeccable honour. He’s the last person she expects to trust — and the first who’s ever made her feel safe. And he’s the only one who can help her expose a deadly secret, if they can just stay alive long enough...

The third book in the Mischief Bay series is basically a stand-alone. You don’t have to read the fist two books to enjoy A Million Little Things. Each book in the series is about a group of women that all have different problems, come together in different ways, and work their way through their issues with friendship and understanding. I would put this firmly in women’s fiction category, and if you like real-world issue based novels this is the one for you. Mallery is an excellent writer and portrays contemporary problems with finesse. While my tastes lend more to fantastical fiction, I did enjoy the story of the three women in A Million Little Things, but I don’t know if I’ll read more in the series. Again, personal taste, not because the story isn’t well done.read more
The Gardiner and Renner series starts off with a bang in Lisa Black’s second book. The series can be read as a stand-alone but I would recommend reading the first book, That Darkness, first. I have a thing for vigilantes, and Lisa Black’s series is just my thing…read more
The “Hot Billionaire” trend is not fading, and I do have to admit that I like them, but when they get formulaic they do tend to chafe and get repetitive. The Rule Maker was as formulaic as they get. Insert romantic part here, insert quirky scene here. I did find some of the interactions quite entertaining but the overall feel of a cookie-cutter billionaire romance had me losing interest once they hooked up.read more
