And her plan works—deliciously well—until Stack's past steps out of the shadows.Stack learned early to stay free of attachments. But with sexy, forthright Vanity, he's the one always left wanting more. Then his troublemaking family comes back into the picture, threatening everything Stack cares about—Vanity included. Suddenly he realizes they're much more than friends with benefits. He's ready to go to the mat for her…but will it be in time to protect the woman who's tamed him for good?PURCHASE HERE:
Is it difficult to make this hard fighter sweet and swoony and then back to brutal and hard?
I see the fighters as athletes, being very dedicated to their sport in preparation and competition. But outside of the sport, they’re the same as any other men who are loving and honorable and dedicated to their families. The big difference is that professional MMA competitors have lethal skills and a more finely honed ability to defend. Given that a man would likely be very Alpha in order to put himself in a cage to fight, to me, they make perfect heroes for a romance.
“Foster brings her signature blend of heat and sweet to her addictive third Ultimate martial arts contemporary. Foster ably tosses out red herrings and also seamlessly lays the foundation for the next book in this series. This luscious tale will appeal to Foster’s legion of fans and attract new ones—even those who aren’t fans of professional fighting.” - Publishers Weekly
