Fighting Dirty by Lori Foster

Author: Lori Foster
Publisher: Harlequin Mira
Date of publication: February 23, 2016

He's the hottest MMA fighter in the game, but one woman is ready to try out a few steamy moves of her own in an unforgettable new novel from New York Times bestselling author Lori Foster...

With the life he's led and the muscles he's gained, Armie Jacobson isn't afraid of anything. Except maybe Merissa Colter's effect on him. It's not just that she's his best friend's little sister. Fact is, she deserves better. Women pursue him for one night of pleasure, and that's all he wants to offer. Until rescuing Merissa from a robbery leads to the most erotic encounter of his life. 

Good girl meets bad boy. It's a story that rarely ends well. But Merissa is taking matters into her own hands. No matter how he views himself, the Armie she knows is brave, honorable and completely loyal. And as past demons and present-day danger collide, they're both about to learn what's truly worth fighting for…

Two words are all I really need to tell you how I felt about Fighting Dirty. LOVED IT!  I have been waiting for Armie's story since the beginning of the "Ultimate" series.  Armie and Merissa, "Rissy", have danced around each other for years.  After a kiss months before, Armie has done everything he can to avoid Rissy.  She is his best friend's sister and therefore off limits...or is she?

It's hard not to share any spoilers because I just want to tell you everything about the book.  What I love about these two is their easy banter.  They have known each other for a long time and that made their relationship that much sweeter.  I often wanted to smack Armie in the back of the head to get him to wake up and figure out that he was so worthy of Rissy. He had a lot to work out, but I was really rooting for them the whole book.  To keep things interesting, there is a mystery to be solved as well as their road to a HEA.  I will share one thing...if you readers thought their kiss at the end of Tough Love was hot, you haven't seen anything yet!  

Lori Foster has, and I think always will be, a "go to" author for me.  Her series just keep getting better and better.  I can't wait to see what she has waiting in the wings next!
