Hard Knocks: An Ultimate Novella

Book 0.5, Ultimate Series

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


In the stunning prequel novella to her new mixed martial arts series, New York Times bestselling author Lori Foster brings together an elite fighter and the woman he's determined to win.

Power. Brute strength. Unforgettable moves. It's no wonder Harper Gates hasn't been able to get her fling with Gage "Savage" Ringer out of her head. Months have passed since she laid eyes—or any other body parts—on him. Months without a word of contact…until, sidelined by injury, he comes back to town.

Staying focused on his training seemed like a smart move to Gage, even if he thought about Harper every day. Seeing her again only makes it clear how much is at stake. He's got one night to earn back her trust. One night to show her that behind his breathtaking skill and ripped body is a man who'll give her everything she needs.

Don't miss No Limits, the first novel in Lori Foster's Ultimate series.

Customer Reviews

A short read but good.

This was a short read but good. I hope there is another book about G&H. It was short and I would love to hear more about them. Can't wait to read the next one.

Great start!!

This is a really good start to the Ultimate series by Lori Foster. I've been waiting for this series since Rowdy and Dash's books where we got to know Cannon and Yvette.This book is about Gage "Savage" Ringer is very hot and Harper Gates is very sweet, and it sets up the series well and introduces use to the main characters of the series. It's a fast paced short story about miscommunication and misunderstandings. I can't wait for "No Limits" cannon and Yvette's book.


I love Lori Foster. Her stories and characters are always memorable. I will continue to buy everything she writes!
