[Kame's Review]: "Hard Knocks"

Hard Knocks by Lori Foster
Publisher: Harlequin HQN (August 4, 2014)
Series: Ultimate, 0.5
Genre: Contemporary Romance

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.

Kame's Review:

This is the prequel novella to a new series. A great way to get introduced. We learn about the type of gym these people train, how they train, what it is like to train and meet lots of the characters, all while watching a hero and heroine who definitely are attracted to each other discover they share the same feelings.

If this novella has any indication of the witty banter, action and sexy times of the heroes and heroines Lori Foster has in store for us - this will be one HOT series!

One I am looking forward to reading!

Like Iza, I've never read her stuff either. I do love boxing and MMA romance stories since I tried my first one last year. Sounds good, Kame!
