Hard Knocks

Hard Knocks (Ultimate #0.5) by Lori Foster

 

synopsis_thumb2

In the stunning prequel novella to her new mixed martial arts series, New York Times bestselling author Lori Foster brings together an elite fighter and the woman he’s determined to win.

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.

Don’t miss No Limits, the first novel in Lori Foster’s Ultimate series

5 out of 5 stars

I loved this story! Sexy and highly entertaining from the start. Gage and Harper are great characters, I got a real sense of who they were.

Everything moved along at a nice pace. There was lots of longing, a bit of tension and an excellent amount of heat. I like how everything developed and the outcome. I was grinning like a fool by the end. 

I loved meeting all the other MMA fighters. They had great comradery with one another as well as with Harper. I could see snippets of their individual personalities which made me want to know more about them (bring on the series!). Armie was my favorite, he stole the show! I was laughing and smiling because of him, he was great. There was a nice intro for Cannon too so I am very much looking forward to his story in No Limits

Really nice build to the sexy times - it was super hot! There were some sweet awwww moments too. Loved it all. Solid beginning, middle, and end. Great introduction to the series. Loved it! 5 stars!!!!!

Complimentary copy received for honest review.

A surprise inheritance reunites a mixed martial arts fighter with the woman he's never forgotten in the first in a smoldering new series from New York Times bestselling author Lori Foster…

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…
