Wow! I've read Lori Foster before, but not one of her Body Armor Novels. Why, I asked myself. I have been missing a whole lot!
Suspenseful intrigue kept me on my toes. I was trying to guess the villain from the very beginning and by the end it proved, yet again, why I am not a detective. Foster's twists and turns kept me on the edge of my seat. I'm sure it had nothing to do with the sexy as sin former MMA fighters, now bodyguards, who make up the Body Armor Agency.
I love the fact the Agency is run by a strong, independent woman and that our heroine, Maxi is a strong woman. It was refreshing to see that when faced with her family, Maxi falls back into the familial role she has always played. Foster takes snippets from life and interjects them into her novel to make them believable. What can I say about "The Legend?" Other than I want to have one of my own. Can he be cloned?
A whole cast of characters, both introduced in previous books and for only this book give an exciting page turning read to the reader. Without giving away who the bad guy is, I was somewhat shocked. He had been on my list and then I dismissed him for another candidate. Yeah, some detective I'd be. Just give me a few cats and I'll be happy. Great read. Can't wait for the next one!
MMA fighter Miles Dartman’s casual arrangement with personal shopper Maxi Nevar would be many men’s fantasy. She seeks him out, they have mindblowing sex, she leaves. Rinse, repeat. Yet lately, Miles wants more. And when Maxi requests his services via the Body Armor security agency, he’s ready to finally break through her defenses—and protect her day and night.
Receiving a large inheritance has brought chaos and uncertainty into Maxi’s life. Her ex has resurfaced, along with lots of former “friends,” and someone is making mysterious threats. Then there’s Miles, who doesn’t ask for anything…except her trust. Pleasure is easy. Now Maxi has to give her heart as well as her body…or risk losing a man who could be everything she needs.
