Holding Strong

Ultimate Novels, #2

An up-and-coming MMA fighter and a woman fleeing her past spend an amazing night together in the latest installment of Lori Foster’s Ultimate series.

Heavyweight fighter Denver Lewis and Cherry Peyton have been dancing around their mutual attraction for a while. Denver’s a really nice guy but perceives Cherry as a flirty party girl, which is usually OK but he wants more from her than a good time. After traveling out of town to watch Armie (sigh) fight, their attraction finally reaches a boiling point and they share a scorching encounter.

The next morning, Cherry is sick from a bug going around and her “family” has finally tracked her down in the form of three dangerous looking brothers. Cherry’s backstory is gradually revealed, explaining why she is determined to keep her carefree façade and the man she loves at arm’s length. You can’t help but admire her determination to overcome her past.

Cherry’s not the only person with her family drama, Denver has his fair share of issues too…wow!

Let me just start by saying that I could go complete fan girl at Colter’s Warfield, Ohio gym. All those smexy guys and their potential HEAs makes me a happy reader. I thought the teaser scenes between Armie and Rissy and Stack and Vanity (such a mysterious girl!) gave momentum to the continuation of the series – which I am thoroughly looking forward to reading. I really loved Denver and Cherry’s story! Lori Foster has mastered the art of “this is moving just fast enough” to keep the reader engrossed in the story. I also like that this is a book where the main characters almost get together in the first chapters instead of keeping you guessing until the very last chapter and then rushing the conclusion.
