#22: Hard Knocks - Lori Foster

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.

REVIEW:
HOT!
I saw the cover, and what was a girl to do?! I had to know who the hot guy was on the front. He is hot, lemme tell ya.
The chick he admires is pretty hot too.
The relationship between them, or lack thereof, is so steamy hot.
What do you get?
Hot, hot, hot!!!
Then you get the grit from the fighting scenes that adds an extra smash of 'bad-boy' or 'tough-guy' to the mix and how can a reader resist? You can't. I loved that element!
The sex scenes were pretty intense. This being such a small read and all, I wasn't expecting it, I guess. Kudos to the author for creating such an erotic story, but not over-the-top.
Sweet and spicy, short read. I can't wait to read No Limits now.

4.5/5

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.

I'm also posting early for two reasons, 1; work, and 2; a review posting tomorrow. Watch for that!
