He's the hottest MMA fighter in the game, but one woman is ready to try out a few steamy moves of her own in an unforgettable new novel from New York Times bestselling author Lori Foster...

With the life he's led and the muscles he's gained, Armie Jacobson isn't afraid of anything. Except maybe Merissa Colter's effect on him. It's not just that she's his best friend's little sister. Fact is, she deserves better. Women pursue him for one night of pleasure, and that's all he wants to offer. Until rescuing Merissa from a robbery leads to the most erotic encounter of his life.

Good girl meets bad boy. It's a story that rarely ends well. But Merissa is taking matters into her own hands. No matter how he views himself, the Armie she knows is brave, honorable and completely loyal. And as past demons and present-day danger collide, they're both about to learn what's truly worth fighting for

We of course all remember Armie! ☺
He's just been signed with the SBC - the biggest Mixed Martial Arts company!
But he's not really happy. He doesn't like to be in the spotlight and doing stupid promo and interviews.... and being a great fighter for a huge company...that's what he has to do.
Also part of his unhappiness is Merissa. The sister of his best buddy Cannon.
He's in love with her, but he thinks he's not good enough. With his past and his job and his parental examples...
But Merissa doesn't care about his stupid ideas. She's loved him ever since she was a teenager.
And even her brother doesn't have anything against them as a couple...
Time to convince that idiot Armie that they belong together!

But of course Armie's past doesn't stay in the past....
And Merissa's ex doesn't want to stay ex anymore....

What will happen to Armie & Merissa???
Will there be a Happy Ever After for them???
Or will there be a horrible Cliffhanger???

I'm not telling you that of course ☺


Finally the next book in Lori's fighter series ☺

ARMIE!!! ☺☺☺☺☺
UGH - it feels like we had to wait decades to finally get Armie & Merissa's story!!!
We always saw them in the other books and wanted them to get their HEA and now here's their chance!

This was such a perfect romance!!!
I loved every moment! It was full of everything a good romance needs:

It was very sexy!!!!

And so funny!!!! Two words: shower scene!!! ☺☺☺

But it was also very suspensy and moving and cute and adorable!

I just love this series!
It's sooo adorable to see all those big bad fighters falling for their girls one after the other ☺
And I loved how we see them all again in this book!!

FIGHTING DIRTY was such an adorable, exciting, sexy and moving fighter romance! READ IT - you don't want to miss seeing how Armie finally gets over his stupidity and makes an honest woman out of Merissa ☺    

I WOULD SOOO LOVE IT if someone would make a movie/tv-series out of this book - just so we could stare and fangirl at Armie and Cannon etc. all day long!!!!

Who's next??? Or is the series over already??? Whatever Lori comes up with next...GIMMEEE!!!
PS - here's what Lori has to say about that:
Leese will be the first book in a new series that branches off the Ultimate series, with a tentative release date of Dec 2016. In fact, the new series should have Leese, Justice, Brand and Miles as heroes.

 ARC received for an honest review

Armie Jacobsen's story - woo-fricking-hoo!

The wait for Armie's story has been interminable. Every book I though "Please let Armie's book be next!" only for another of the Ultimate boys to get a book.

But the wait was definitely worth it.  Armie and Merissa (Rissy) have been circling each other for years so it was fantastic to see them finally take that next step.  And what a sexy, sexy step that turned out to be!

But it was never going to be an easy road for them, but what Ms Foster gave us was so much more than I expected.

Armie is so much more than he thinks he is.  But Rissy sees it all, and pushes Armie to see it too.

I love love love Rissy.  I want to be her when I grow up.  Not only is she surrounded by hotties, she is a badass, strong as anything woman.

I loved the interaction between all the boys.  They give each other so much shit, but hell do they have each other's backs.

We also got to learn more about Justice and Leese in this book, giving us a great set up for their stories.

The Ultimate series has been sweet, sexy and fun to read, and I am sorry to see it coming to an end, but I am looking forward to Leese, Miles, Justice and Brand's stories in the future.

Along with anything else Ms Foster brings us.

Please don't make us wait too long.
