Hot, Sizzling and emotional ride!!
Like everyone else who has read this series, I was anxiously awaiting this book dedicated to the story of Armie and Merissa. As we have read the series we have gotten to know both Armie and Merissa. Armie is the bad boy that you can't help but love, while Merissa is the good girl that he believes deserves better than him, besides the fact that she is his best friends little sister. Armie is a complex character. He is the bad boy, is brutally honest, but also has a soft, giving heart and would do anything to protect those in his life. We learn the background of why he is acts the way he does and why he believes he is not worthy of Merissa. Merissa is a strong, independent and sensible woman. I enjoyed getting to know her better and how she handles situations. And I loved that she finally took the initiative where Armie was concerned.
We have gotten brief glimpses of the chemistry between Merissa and Armie through out the series, but once they actually get together the chemistry is hot, sizzling and steamy. Lori does a fantastic job developing the characters and their relationship. It felt natural and real. The story moves along at a good pace and keeps you interested. And as always there are some scenes that will make you laugh out loud. While you know who is behind the mystery of the story, there are some things you don't see coming.
All the characters are present in the book and I enjoyed catching up with them. Cannon has more of a role in this book and is great as the big bother and the best friend. He wants what is best for both Armie and Merissa, and he believes that is each other.
Lori does not fail to deliver with this highly anticipated book. If you've read the Ultimate Series, this is a MUST read. If you haven't then what are you waiting for?? Start reading now.
One of my favorites
Loved it!!!!! Sex, studdly fighters, bad guys, and crazy ex's.
Merissa is a bank manager, sister to Cannon, and been in love with Armie for years. She has just been waiting for him to wise up and admit he loves her.
Armie is a MMA fighter now headed for the big times, a manwhore, and doesn't want to get involved with Rissy because of his past. But she has had enough and goes after what she wants. When her bank is robbed and Armie happens to be there to save the day. Now he'll do anything to keep her safe even giving her up.
Have been waiting forever for Armie and Merissa's story. Was not disappointed!

Fighting Dirty by Lori Foster
Another fantastic read by Lori Foster!! Armie Jacobson is a lean, mean, tattooed, sexy fighting machine but has been weirdly reluctant to sign on to become an SBC professional fighter. Armie has always been attracted to Rissy but can never allow himself to have her, he thinks she deserves someone so much better then him, someone without the crappy upbringing that he had or the dark secret he's been keeping. Merissa Colter, Cannon's younger sister, has been in love with Armie since she was a teenager. She wants nothing more then to be with him but every time she enters the room, he finds a reason to leave the room, she's tried to move on and see other people but nothing ever works out. When the bank Merissa works at gets robbed and Armie happens to be there to shield her after being held at gunpoint, Armie gets a wake up call that he could have lost her without ever having her. The threats to Rissy continue to escalate and past secrets are revealed, Armie will do whatever necessary to keep Rissy safe. This was a long awaited story! Armie was a huge ladies man and I'm glad that he's now a one lady's man, his shirts are hilarious and I definitely loved the discovery of the "Rissy was here" message at the rec center (inside joke, have to read the story to see why it's so funny). I'm super happy to see that there will be a spin off series with the rest of the guys from the Ultimate series, Leese definitely needs his own story!
