Fighting Dirty by Lori Foster

Book Description

He's the hottest MMA fighter in the game, but one woman is ready to try out a few steamy moves of her own in an unforgettable new novel from New York Times bestselling author Lori Foster...

With the life he's led and the muscles he's gained, Armie Jacobson isn't afraid of anything. Except maybe Merissa Colter's effect on him. It's not just that she's his best friend's little sister. Fact is, she deserves better. Women pursue him for one night of pleasure, and that's all he wants to offer. Until rescuing Merissa from a robbery leads to the most erotic encounter of his life. 

Good girl meets bad boy. It's a story that rarely ends well. But Merissa is taking matters into her own hands. No matter how he views himself, the Armie she knows is brave, honorable and completely loyal. And as past demons and present-day danger collide, they're both about to learn what's truly worth fighting for…

It's the story we've all be waiting for!!  ARMIE IS HERE!!! Fighting Dirty is the last book in Lori Foster's Ultimate Series.  If you haven't read any of this series, I completely recommend starting from the beginning.  I think you would miss out on the who's and why's behind the characters/relationships/people you skip around.  I am sad to see this tight group of friends move on... Hopefully we will get to revisit them again in future books!!

I have to be honest... I was actually nervous to read Fighting Dirty.  I've been waiting (not-so) patiently for Armie and Merissa's story since reading No Limits.  What if it didn't live up to my expectations in my head?  What if Armie wasn't a good leading man??  My poor brain was coming up with all kinds of questions/scenarios as to what could go wrong with Armie's story.  But my nerves were quickly calmed when I started this book.

From the beginning of this series, you've known there was more to Armie Jacobson than his outlandish man-whoring ways.  You've also known he has wanted Merissa Colter (BAD), but he doesn't feel that he deserves her.  Plus her big brother is Armie's best friend and knows everything about his dark past and probably wouldn't appreciate Armie tainting her with his dirty laundry. Armie couldn't handle if Merissa treated him any different if/when she learned the truth about him.  So he tries to forget his CRAVINGS for Merissa with mind-numbing sex, the kinky-er the better.  But when Merissa is in danger, will Armie be able to deny his feelings for the ONE woman that he always knew was more...      

After being kissed senseless by Armie and pushed away AGAIN, Merissa can take a hint.  Even though she's been in love with him since she was a teenager, Rissy can't take being pushed away anymore and seeing him with other women.  She has been slowly coming to terms that her and Armie will never be together, when suddenly her life takes a major turn.  After being threatened at work, Armie is willing to do anything to protect her.  And all to soon their chemistry is becoming to much to deny for either of them...

But will Armie drop his walls enough to let Rissy in, or will he push her away to protect her... even if that means protecting her from himself.  

The ONLY thing I wish this book had was an epilogue ESPECIALLY since this was the last book in the series.  But again, hopefully we will get to "see" these characters again in Ms. Foster's spin-off series coming soon! =]

Rating: 5 out of 5
