Publisher's Summary

An up-and-coming MMA fighter wants more than just one night from a woman fleeing her past in New York Times best-selling author Lori Foster's irresistible new novel.

Heavyweight fighter Denver Lewis plays real nice, but he doesn't share. That's why he's been avoiding top-notch flirt Cherry Peyton. But a man can resist those lush curves for only so long. Their encounter surpasses all his fantasies, bringing out protective urges that Cherry's about to need more than she knows....

Denver's combination of pure muscle and unexpected tenderness has been driving Cherry wild. Yet no sooner does she get what she's been craving than old troubles show up on her doorstep. And this time Cherry can't hide behind a carefree facade. Because the man by her side is one who'll fight like hell to keep her safe...if only she'll trust him enough to let him....

Big disappointment

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Corupt cops, foster care, low income, doingwhats rights, good concquering bad, hard work and effort paying off. Past books have been excellent at spinning the tales. This ones a DUD. It drags and drags, plot is slow to resolve. Agonizingly slow. Repetative, very much a rehash of previous work. Not worth your time or money. Run the Risk and Getting Rowdy tell the same story but so much better.

I love Lori Foster's men

I wasn't too sure about this series because of the MMA fighters. I am not a fan of the sport at all, but the books are still great. If you like Foster's other books you will like these too.

If you like Lori Foster's books then you won't be let down by this one....It is the same basic plotline as the others, but I like them so it is worth it to me.

Yes, always!

Good but not great because...

Any additional comments?

She has a good character build up and story line going on.

The problem I have, is that I do not like a heroine or hero hooking up with anyone else after meeting each other. Lori Foster does not have any cheating going on in her series. I just have a hard time feeling the love between the 2 if I know they just hooked up with someone days, weeks, or hours before. That being said, it seems she is hinting that Armie, one of the characters coming up soon isn't as much of a manwhore as we think. I sure hope not. If Lori would back off on the slutty side of all these fighters and focus more on the story line I would have given it a 5 star. The first 3 hours of the book I got so annoyed and disappointed I almost didn't finish it. I am glad I did though. I see that other readers have the same thoughts as me. I am hoping she reads these reviews and maybe adjust a little on those topics. As far as Denver and Cherry they are a good couple and Denvar is a loving hero.
