A Delicious Romance
Hard Justice (Body Armor) - Lori Foster

I've officially finished my buddy read with A Monster Called Me and we wanted to read something romantic for the month of February. So a Lori Foster book fit the bill!

 

I'll be honest, I was skeptical of this book in the very beginning. I listen to all of my books through Audible because it allows me to multitask. The narrator for Hard Justice does a phenomenal job of providing a voice for Justice. It's a masculine laid back New Yorker drawl. But good lord, the voice he provided for Fallon and the other women in the book was awful. It was an overly lispy high pitched voice that sounded terrible. It came off as a bad memory of drunk gals in the club whining, "I just wanna dance!" after their fifth vodka cranberry. I wish the narrator would have just kept his voice normal for the female parts of this book. It would have been way better.

 

Beside the audio aspect, the book started off rough for me. I had to take a step back and remind myself I was reading a sappy romantic novel that isn't exactly supposed to be held to high class literary works (Not like that's my cup of tea either, but you get the point). Fallon's mega naive ways come off as a little over the top in the beginning. But once the first few chapters were out of the way, I started to adore this book.

 

Foster paints each detail so perfectly that it does become very immersive. She doesn't sacrifice any of her characters to just being stand ins. They all have their own side stories (which I later found out there are books for!). I'm the kind of person who LOVES the side stories of books. I find myself enjoying side characters more than the main characters sometimes. So you can bet I'm going to be reading the rest of the characters books. 

 

By the time the book ended, I was left wanting more. I wanted to see Justice and Fallon get married, have kids, take vacations, grow old. This book was a deliciously cheesy and savory book to read for fun. If you don't take it seriously, you'll love it.

Buddy Read Complete!
Hard Justice (Body Armor) - Lori Foster

As mentioned, Southern Fried Reads and I chose this one for a buddy read. As if by design, we both finished tonight. 

 

Hard Justice is a reread for me and honestly, I'm really glad we chose it. I appreciate it even more than I did the first time I read it. Is it campy and cheesy and over the top? Of course. But that's kind of the appeal of romance novels, isn't it? Indulging in some fantasy? Plus, I really think Foster is a solid writer. The story follows a good progression, has its tense moments, and a satisfying ending. I'm not expert of the genre, but I find Foster's books some of the better romance novels I've read. 

 

Final rating: 5 out of 5 this time. It's delectably indulgent and I will not apologize.

His Name Is Justice
Hard Justice (Body Armor) - Lori Foster

Not gonna do one of my long, in depth reviews for this one 'cause really, I just read it for the giggles. 

 

I really enjoyed this one. Like I said, not normally into romance but when I do read them I prefer them overdramatic and silly. This one fit both the bills. So many points where I laughed and just HAD to text a line to my friends 'cause it was just so ridiculous. It's a decent plot, a cute story and a quick read. And, as a romance novel, it was delightfully steamy and romantic. 

 

That said, Lori Foster is not allowed to use the word "hard" every again. You could turn it into a drinking game how many times the word was said. 

 

This was such a fun read. A nice break from the more serious novels I've been reading. 4 out of 5 Stars.

Reading progress update: I've read 88 out of 384 pages.
Hard Justice (Body Armor) - Lori Foster

I don't normally read romances but this one came through at work and I found it so delightfully funny that I had to read it. So far it's not disappointing.
