In the stunning prequel novella to her mixed martial art 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-- and 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.
Great start to the Ultimate fighter series. THIS IS A SHORT STORY!! A little teaser into the Ultimate fighter's world and the new characters that you haven't met in her previous series.
This novella starts with an upset Gage, who was medically sidelined from his next fighting match, back stateside at Cannon's rec center watching Cannon's "breakout" fight. He's been watching Harper all night, while she has been giving him since he left months prior without a word.
How will Gage win back his girl?! You have to read to find out!
I just want to say that I loved our female lead. Harper Gates is a favorite heroine for me. She knew how important Gage's career as a fighter was to him and didn't pull the "if you love me, you would pay attention to me" card. Harper gave him plenty of space when she thought he needed it, but Gage let her know right quick that she wasn't a nuisance and how she could never be in his way.
As for Gage, I loved and I mean loved, how Gage realizes he's in love with Harper without even having sex with her. He doesn't even glance at other women, while he was in Japan he was celibate because all he could think about was Harper. Gage is my type of hero, a man who knows who he wants but doesn't give in and have sex with other women just because they are available. All hero's should be like him. When him and Harper finally get together intimately, it's a total knock out. "Mmm," she murmured. "I lost my bones somewhere." "I have one you can borrow." Loved it, totally classic.
While this novella is a quick read, it will satisfy you and leave you aching for more. At the moment, I am continuously looking at my calender waiting for Cannon's story to hit the shelves.
Love, love, love this novella!!
I am a huge Lori Foster fan, and this story didn't disappoint at all! I'm so glad she started a new MMA series!
Gage and Harper are such a hot couple even when they don't realize it. I love how even though they had been split apart for a little while, they still had the attraction. That attraction could be felt through the pages.
"Losing my head over you? No...I lost it a long time ago. I just forgot to tell you."
I really like the banter, not only between Harper and Gage, but the other characters as well. Armie...enough said! I really hope each of these guys are getting their own story, because it would awesome:) I also liked the glimpse into Cannon's story. Lori has an amazing way of tying series and books into each other!
Such a great novella! Can't wait to read No Limits to continue this storyline!
I do love this"gym" that they've established for getting neighborhood kids a place to go. Wish real communities had more of these. it give teens something good to do.
Lori never disappoints. She is always a"books I buy" one click heaven!
