Cannon Colter and Yvette Sweeney are back from the Love Undercover series to kick off Lori Foster’s Ultimate series about a group of MMA fighters who run a community rec center. Cannon is the lovable bad boy who walks the line to keep his community safe. We met him when he was younger as he patrolled the neighborhood with is friends. But he had a bigger role in the last book when he helped save Yvette. Yvette at the same time was young and deeply scarred by the events that take place in the story Dash of Peril. While you don’t need to have read Dash of Peril, it does help in understanding past events.

Flash forward. Yvette’s living in California trying to forget what happened in her home town when her grandpa passes away. Back home Yvette learns her grandfather has split the inheritance between Yvette and the man dreams are made of, Cannon. Determined to avoid conflict she tries to assure Cannon she will sell things and split the money, leaving this a very friendly, but non-attraction relationship.

Successful on the MMA circuit, Cannon is home from Japan between fights. He hasn’t forgotten Yvette, but she was too young to pursue once upon a time. Now sharing an inheritance, Cannon wants to explore the feelings he has for her. Thus he moves into the house they share and starts his courting plan.

Yvette avoids Cannon, Cannon pursues. Yvette thinks she is cold and unfeeling, Cannon sets out to prove otherwise. Throw in an crazy ex-boyfriend and some weird coincidences, you have a romantic suspense you don’t want to put down. Yvette moves her eBay shop from California to the old pawn store her grandfather owned while the MMA boys chip in to help. We meet Armie, Cannon’s best friend, who is a really bad boy not afraid of his sexuality. Throw in his crush on Cannon’s younger sister. We even get to see characters from Lori’s other series.

I loved watching a man fall for the woman he was attracted to but not willing to rush growing up. Someone confident in who they are, but also able to put aside their own desires to help out someone they care about achieve what will bring them both pleasure. These two worked so great together! I loved how Yvette fangirled over the fighters, able to give stats if needed. It was just too cute.

This is one series I intend to keep coming back for more on!

Shari is the Delighted Reader. Married to her Prince Charming and mother to two Princesses and one Prince. When she is not slaving away as Cinderella she loves to get lost in the pages of a good book. Never without a reading device and a few good paperback books, because she never knows when she might get 5 minutes to read!
  • I love the idea that he waited for her. It does sound good, but I’m going to take your advice and read the past stuff first.

  • I really liked he waited too! I wasn’t sure in the previous serious how that would all work out but the time jump and everything was nicely done.

  • AWW!! Loved your review!! I just read two of Foster’s novella’s and loved them, so different than what I expected, and I have been looking to add more of her books in my reading pile, and i think you won me over on this one.
