He can protect anything except his heart 

Leese Phelps's road hasn't been an easy one, but it's brought him to the perfect job—working for the elite Body Armor security agency. And what his newest assignment lacks in size, she makes up for in fire and backbone. But being drawn to Catalina Nicholson is a dangerous complication, especially since it could be the very man who hired Leese who's threatening her. 

What Catalina knows could get her killed. But who'd believe the sordid truth about her powerful stepfather? Beyond Leese's ripped body and brooding gaze is a man of impeccable honor. He's the last person she expects to trust—and the first who's ever made her feel safe. And he's the only one who can help her expose a deadly secret, if they can just stay alive long enough…

From Publishers Weekly

Nov 28, 2016 – Launching the Body Armor contemporary romantic suspense series, bestseller Foster (Don't Tempt Me) pulls out all the stops with precise plotting and deep characters. Leese Phelps, a former mixed martial arts fighter turned bodyguard for the Body Armor agency, rescues headstrong art teacher Catalina Nicholson from attackers, who know she's in possession of a dangerous secret and are trying to silence her. She fears that her stepfather, a wealthy and politically connected CEO, hired Leese to kidnap her, but he soon puts her at ease. Leese takes Cat to Body Armor's headquarters in Cincinnati, where the firm's new owner, Sahara Silver, stashes the two in the firm's luxurious penthouse for safekeeping. As danger grows, so do the passion and affection between Cat and Leese. Teasing and humorous dialogue, sizzling sex scenes, tender moments, and overriding tension show Foster's skill as a balanced storyteller. She sets up a continuing story line for the series with the mystery of who murdered the firm's founder, Sahara's brother, but this thread never overwhelms the gripping main story, which will leave readers breathless.

Customer Reviews

Action, heat and romance all in one!

Wowzer!! What a fantastic start to this series. This book captured my interest from the very beginning. It is intriguing and kept me wondering what was going to happen. I couldn't put it down. The plot is unique and only something Lori could come up with. I love that about her books, they aren't the typical romance stories.

I've liked Leese since he was introduced in the Ultimate Series and have loved watching his transformation. I loved Cat's strength and independence, even in the face of danger. When these two meet, you feel the instant attraction, but more so the connection. The chemistry is off the charts between Leese and Cat, you can feel the sparks flying. This book is hot, sexy, witty and action packed.

And I absolutely loved having the characters from the Ultimate Series make appearances. I'm excited for this series!!

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Loved it!

With the kick-off of a brand new series, Lori Foster brings us some familiar faces! Instant attraction melded with heightened awareness to keep her safe has this Body Armor bodyguard feeling more than he ever thought possible for his newest client! Great chemistry between the entire cast of characters keeps us highly entertained as we go along for the ride of solving the mystery of who the bad guys really are and how they can stop them.

When Leese Phelps gave up fighting to settle into being a body guard, he wasn’t sure he was going to like it, but he has to admit, it’s a satisfying job! His boss Sahara takes good care of her guys and doesn’t take any gruff off of anybody, so they can always count on her to have their back.

From the moment he meets Cataline Nicholson, he’s drawn to her. She’s done a great job of keeping herself hidden, and now that they have found her and realize what’s really going on, they realize they have led danger right to her door again! She knows some very dangerous information, but knows no one would believe her against the wealthy men that it would bring down. Now that Leese and his agency are on her side, will they be able to get all of the info they need to bring justice for those wronged and keep Cat safe before the bad men catch up to them?


Catalina is on the run from her step father and some very crazy, influential people. She overheard them talking about a murder and an island where anything goes.

Leese is a former fighter turned bodyguard. He is hired to protect Cat. But she is keeping major secrets. He'll have to get her to trust him to give up the information she has. Cat has not made it a secret about how much she wants him. So he has to keep her safe and fight off her seductions.
Awesome start to a new series. Some old faces. A strong, woman who's not afraid to go after the man she wants. Leese is hot, sexy and good guy. This story will keep you guessing to the very end. A little humor and some steamy scenes.
