Fighting Dirty
Fighting Dirty (An Ultimate Novel) - Lori Foster

I'll admit, I'm addicted to Lori Foster books right now. I didn't think I'd enjoy romance novels, but here we are! 

 

After reading Hard Justice with A Monster Called Me, I'm hooked to the fighting world that Lori Foster has made for all of her characters. After reading Hard Justice, I automatically wanted to read into Armie Jacobson's tale. And Foster did not disappoint. 

 

Armie's bad boy persona wasn't the first thing I was expecting, seeing that when we meet him in Hard Justice, he already has a daughter. But it was a luring detail to him. It had me wondering right off the bat, what made Armie become such a player?

 

Rissy, in the description, was supposed to come off as a sweet little goody two shoes gal. However, that wasn't the case with her. Sure she was a good girl, but the girl had bite to her when pushed in the right direction. I admired that Foster didn't completely make her a helpless damsel (even though that does happen a lot.) I at least admire Rissy's courage to say no and to fight back as best as she can.

 

The build up to Armie and Rissy's night together is drool worthy. Foster did a great job at teasing the reader that they were finally going to get together. By the time they do, you're almost as happy as the two are.

 

Steve, Rissy's ex is a little over dramatic in the book. I loved his part in it. But he's pretty psychotic for a typical ex. I enjoyed his antagonistic ways but hiring hit man to rough up your ex so you can get her back? It's a bit of a stretch for me.

 

Armie's secret and his dysfunctional family paint a deeper image of who he is, and what he's become. The addition of his father really developed him as a dimensional character. I think that compared to Justice in Hard Justice, he has a much more intense and well crafted back story. A Monster Called Me called Foster's choice for Armie's secret ballsy, and I agree! This book came out in 2016 and it was and still is a gutsy time to add that characteristic to your main guy.

 

The ending of this book was awesome. I love how it all wrapped up and Rissy's final realization. It left me so happy for the two. I almost felt like the ending was a little rushed. After all, we spend the ENTIRE book building up to Armie's fight. And it was barely a portion of this book. I would have loved a little more with that part, but overall, I loved this book and I'm ready to read her next!

Fighting Dirty (An Ultimate Novel) - Lori Foster

Took me the whole month, but I finally finished my buddy read for March. Southern Fried Reads chose this one and I'm glad she did. It was fabulous and it had a solid story. A ridiculous story but honestly a solid one. The mystery of how the bank robbery connects to Armie's past which connects to a near hit and miss for Rissy all built up well upon itself and led to a fabulous conclusion.

 

I have to say, Foster had some balls in this one regarding Armie's secret. When I got to it I was shocked she went with that angle, given it seems risky especially in this day and age, but she executed it well and it fit into Armie's character. Like, it actually connected to his behavior rather than being tossed in for shock value. So kudos to Foster for going as far as she did. It was a risk but it paid off. 

 

Final rating: 5 out of 5. Ridiculous but I love it, which is all I expect from a book. Also, the adult store scene was priceless.

Fighting Dirty (An Ultimate Novel) - Lori Foster

This is the March buddy read with Southern Fried Reads. So far, I'm enjoying it. It's delightfully ridiculous and Merissa is a fun character. Armie was one of my favorite side characters from Hard Justice so it's fun to get to see more of him as well.

Fighting Dirty (Blind Jacks MC) - J.C. V... Fighting Dirty (Blind Jacks MC) - J.C. Valentine,M. Carroll

The story of Ryder and Tiffany continues in this second book.  You should read Marked For Death before you read this one.

As Ryder and Tiffany are getting settled in a life together, she can't help wondering if she is really cut out for the biker lifestyle.  Tiff loves Ryder like no other man before, but certain things that she sees in the biker's way of living she is not too keen on...danger....violence....whores....etc.

When something happens to Darkness, president of the Blind Jacks, all hell breaks loose.  While trying to contain that situation, it becomes apparent that Tiffany's ex has found her again.  Not wanting to bring more problems to the bikers, Tiff makes a rash decision that almost pushes Ryder over the edge.  Tiffany finally realizes that her and Ryder really do belong together and together is how they confront her crazy ex-husband.

All the suspense leading up to the confrontation was really enjoyable and made me want to keep reading.  I really enjoyed the characters of Ryder and Tiffany.  They were both fun and believable.  I also loved the situation between Darkness, Sammy and Rose.  They added some extra fun into the intense drama with Ryder and Tiffany.

Fighting Dirty › Sidney Halston 99 cents
Fighting Dirty - Sidney Halston

With his preppy clothes and horn-rimmed glasses, Enzo Silva is the last dude anyone expects to find in a mixed martial arts gym. A wealthy Brazilian banker who never had to fight for anything, Enzo’s stuck in the amateur circuit—but he burns to make the pros. Maybe that explains the heat he feels whenever he’s around Jamie Lynn Calhoun. The pint-size, magenta-haired bartender with the Texas drawl is everything he’s not . . . and everything he craves.
 
Tough as nails and independent to a fault, Jamie Lynn—JL to her friends—works hard to pay her bills and keep life simple. Enzo is doing his best to complicate that. Even though she likes to bust his balls, he’s got some kind of a nerdy-hot vibe that makes JL wonder if she might finally be able to let her guard down. It might do the boy some good to spend some time in her world, where blood, sweat, and victory are as sweet as the first taste of real love.
