Congratulations to Lori Foster on her new release: TOUGH LOVE.
TOUGH LOVE is a Contemporary Romance, and a part of Lori Foster’s Ultimate Series, published by Harlequin HQN.What it's about : She's playing hard to get…to win the MMA fighter of her ultimate fantasies in a sultry new novel from New York Times bestselling author Lori Foster
Vanity Baker loves a good, clean match, but she's not above playing a little dirty. She's wanted Stack "The Wolf" Hannigan from day one. Seems as though the best way to corral the famously commitment-phobic fighter is to insist on keeping it casual. 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?

This is the third book in Lori Foster’s Ultimate Fighter series. No need to worry you can’t follow, if you missed the other books. It works as a stand alone.
In this novel we get the story of Vanity who makes MMA fighter, Stack, an offer he couldn't refuse in order to get him to be her wedding date. Of course, the offer is guaranteed bedroom activity. But much gets in the way of these two making good on Vanity’s offer. There are moments of heartbreak, betrayal, highs and lows. This author is such a master at characters. The two are certainly a hot couple. Whew.
However, there are so many external threats all over the place in this novel that the book sometimes lost a bit of direction while I was reading. It moves quickly to the end, but there didn’t feel like complete resolution of the issues, making me wonder if I must wait for the next book.
Overall, a good read. If you love this author’s work, grab it now.
