Review Tour - Fast Burn

   

From New York Times bestselling author Lori Foster, comes FAST BURN —the fourth standalone novel in her Body Armor Series!

 

 

 For the men of the Body Armor agency, the only thing more dangerous than the job they do is the risk of losing their hearts. Don’t miss Brand and Sahara’s epic story. Grab your copy today!

 

   

 

FAST BURN Synopsis:

 

For the woman who’s his perfect match, he’s willing to break the rules…

 

The moment Brand Berry meets beautiful, driven Sahara Silver, the connection between them is electric. It’s also something he can’t pursue. Sahara wants him, sure—to join Body Armor, where his MMA skills, size, and cocky attitude make him perfect for her elite crew of bodyguards. For Sahara, the agency always comes first, and Brand needs more. Yet when she’s kidnapped by men searching for her missing brother, he doesn’t hesitate.

 

Somewhere along the way, flirting with Brand for the sake of business turned very personal. Despite his refusal to join Body Armor, it’s Brand who steps up when she needs him most. Now there’s no more time for games, and no point denying the hunger they both feel. They’ll escape together or not at all. But if they survive, can Sahara finally surrender control to claim this blazing passion?

Brand smoothed a tendril of thick, light brown hair that had escaped her pins. “You okay?”


That got her stepping quickly away. “Yes, of course.”

 

She brushed her palms against the tight material of her skirt over her thighs. “It was only a kiss.”

 

For some reason, it annoyed him that she downplayed the impact. “A kiss that had you crawling all over me, and you damn near yanked out my hair.”

 

Her eyes widened even more…and then she laughed. “We did get a little carried away.”

 

“A little,” he agreed, still nettled. Could she really be less affected than he was? Or was she hiding behind her usual cool persona?

 

“I’m fine.” She reached up to remove his sunglasses, then stroked her fingers through his hair. “But did I hurt you?"

 

Her touch ignited him all over again. Dangerous. He’d known that about her within minutes of their first introduction. Catching her wrists, he lowered her hands—but then couldn’t let go.

 

And she didn’t pull away. After a long look, she said, “We could…discuss this more tonight.”

 

Hell of a suggestion, but he’d damn near lost it in her office with Enoch just outside the door. If he had her alone, no way in hell would he be able to keep his hands off her. So he shook his head and explained, “I’m meeting the guys at a bar tonight.”

 

One slender brow arched up. “My guys?”

 

Did she think she owned them? “If you mean Leese, Justice and Miles, yeah, they’ll be there, but arriving at different times. I think Leese is between assignments, right? And both Miles and Justice should finish up for the day in time to join us.”

 

“Us?”

 

“A halfdozen other fighters, some of their wives. You’ve met most of them.”

 

She nodded. “Will you be going to that quaint little hometown place, Rowdy’s?”

 

Damn it, did she plan to crash the party? Actually, how the hell did she know about Rowdy’s? He thought about asking her, but decided he’d be better off getting out of there. “That’s the plan, yeah.”

 

She waited, but when he said nothing more, she briefly looked wounded before giving him a cool smile. “Have fun then.” She went back behind her desk and turned on the monitor to her PC in clear dismissal. “Do let me know if you change your mind.”

 

“I won’t.” But he didn’t like being dismissed. “My sunglasses?”

 

As if she forgot she held them, she looked at her hand in surprise. “Oh sorry.”

 

Nonchalant, she leaned forward, offering them to him without getting up, her attention still on the monitor.

 

Proving he had a perverse streak a mile wide, Brand let his fingers slowly graze hers as he took the glasses.

 

Her startled gaze flew to his face, but she only grinned, once again in full control.

 

“Wicked, that’s what you are.” She fluttered her fingers at him. “Thanks for stopping by.”

 

And she went back to staring at the screen.

 

Left with nothing else to do, Brand walked out. That meeting hadn’t gone as planned, but then nothing with Sahara ever did.

 

He knew he’d done the right thing.


So then why did it feel like he’d been kicked in the chest?

 

 

 

  

 

Fast Burn (Body Armor, #4)Fast Burn by Lori Foster
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book #4, in the Body Armor series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader understanding, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this series in order.

Sahara wants to hire Brand. She has made no secret in her pursuit. What she may have forgotten to tell herself, however, was how attracted to him she was. She never actually gets involved with those she works with. So how to work this out?

Brand has turned Sahara down repeatedly. Now, he has a plan that he thinks will work to get them together. Only he forgot to factor in the Sahara brand of bossy. She is a take charge woman - even when you do not work for her.

This book was such a joy to read. You feel the heat rising right off the bat in the very first chapter. This book truly lives up to its name as the story - and the romance - heats up at a quickening pace. True to the series, there is a story that will keep your heart pounding, (mine did) and take you to the very end with every spark.

Keep me
Close Contact (Body Armor) - Lori Foster

This is book #3 in the Body Armor series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader understanding of the series, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading these in order.

 

Miles and Maxi have a hot and heavy history.  There is even a bit of anger and disappointment weaved in.  When she needs him most, he answers the call to help protect her.  He wants to spend more time getting to know her, anyway.

 

Maxi had thought Miles would just be a one night stand.  Then she could not help herself.  Now, with all the problems she is having, he may actually be her knight in shining armor.

 

Such a great addition to the series.  These two characters were so hot the sparks felt like they might leap off the page.  I enjoyed reading this story.  I like the alpha hot men, and the strong yet accepting women.  I cannot wait to read the next installment.  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Release Day ARC Review: Cowboy In The Crosshairs by B.A. Tortuga
Cowboy in the Crosshairs - B.A. Tortuga

Once upon a time, i.e. 10 years or so prior, Wacey, oldest son of the local rodeo company owners, and TJ were a couple in secret. TJ wasn't ready to come out as gay in their small town and also wanted what everyone else had - a wife and a couple of kids. They broke up and Wacey left town right after, hurt and angry, and they haven't spoken since. TJ married, had two kids, and then came clean to his now ex-wife about how he likes men more so than women.

That's the backstory of their relationship. I just love the second chance at love stories, so this one was right up my alley. I also love when the romance isn't all dramatic and full of angst, and I got that here too.

The story begins with TJ, sitting in the diner, doing his Chief of Police thing with the locals, including calming down some old biddie complaining about some art work on the side of house, when he's told that Wacey got hurt real bad and is coming home to the ranch to recuperate. TJ is still mad at Wacey for not coming home for so long, and Wacey wants nothing to do with his old boyfriend.

Obviously that doesn't last for long, as weird things happening at the Bene ranch keep throwing them into each other's path.

Someone apparently has it out for Wacey.

I just love me some good cowboy loving, and this author always delivers the goods. This was such a charming romance, and I adored both MCs. Their relationship was easy-peasy, and once TJ made up his mind to woo Wacey into his bed again, he was relentless in his pursuit.

The mystery/suspense was also really well done, with the incidents getting worse and worse and the suspense building, and nobody having any idea who might be behind it all. I had an inkling about halfway through about the villain, and though I thought that the reason for the villainy might have been a wee bit far-fetched, it's hard to say what might go on in such a mind.

The author's writing style also really worked for this story, and the dialogue felt organic for the setting and the characters.

This is a feel-good second-chance-at-love story with two likable main characters and a great supporting cast. Though, naming your kids Wacey, Lacey, Macey, and Kacey - I feel I must either question your sanity or applaud your sick sense of humor.

Give this a try, y'all. Definitely worth your time.
