Holding Strong will have you holding your breath while burning fingers quickly turn the pages.”

Fresh Fiction

“…a fun and sexy read. It has a touch of suspense to it as well to keep the pace of the story going along.”

It’s a Reading Thing

“The men of Foster’s Ultimate series may be powerful fighters, but they are all heart, and none more so than the hero of this installment. His unwavering support for his feisty, frightened heroine redeems them both in time, but it is their searing chemistry that will hold readers’ attention.”

RT Book Reviews

“Foster…manages to keep characters evolving throughout the course of a novel, becoming true ‘heroes’ by the time ‘The End’ rolls around.”

 I’m a huge fan of Lori Foster’s MMA books.  I was thrilled to read the second in her Ultimate series.  Holding Strong is Denver and Cherry’s story and is one steamy, sexy read.  It was a fun read that pairs up a bit of a player with a flirt.  The sparks are not to be missed.
With any Lori Foster novel, the secondary characters will grab a hold and have you wondering who will have the next story in the series.  Can’t wait for Tough Love!

excerpt
I limp toward Dawg. “Here.” I hand him the phone. “Next time you tattle on me, I’d appreciate it if you didn’t share every little detail.”

“He asked, miss.” Dawg doesn’t appear at all contrite.

“A distracted marine is a dead marine.” I quote Mack, one of Hawke’s men. “Whether Hawke asks or not, you’re not to call him with trivial concerns while he’s on an assignment. Got it?”

The older man maintains my gaze. “Got it.” He doesn’t look away, his lips silently moving as though he’s debating with himself.

I raise an eyebrow.

“He wants you to talk to Hawke, to tell him I’m ready to lead the high-profile assignments.” Ellen’s eyes glitter with excitement.

“That is Organization business,” Dawg barks. “He wouldn’t appreciate us discussing it.”

She shrugs.

Hawke knows she can lead the high-profile assignments, but I don’t relay this because Dawg’s right. My military man won’t appreciate them discussing Organization business, not with me, an outsider.

Plus I’m not certain he will ever delegate this responsibility. I won’t raise my new friend’s hopes.

“Do you really want to lead those assignments?” I gaze at her. How crazy is she? “They’re extremely dangerous.”

“They’re challenging, not extremely dangerous.” Ellen rolls her eyes. “The team is thorough. We reduce the risk of assignments to almost nothing.”

They reduce the risk of assignments to almost nothing. My lips flatten. There’s still a chance that Hawke could die, could leave me forever.

If Ellen was his girl, our relationship would end, but he might live.

Sinful Rewards 9 was a great catch up with  Bee and Hawke.  I love that we see that next step for them.   Bee has some fears and insecurities that she’s able to work through and get over.  Bee is Hawke’s girl and we believe that she truly feels that.  And who can resist Hawke…not me.  The character development gives readers characters with depth and a relationship that has become stronger.
I’m really enjoying this serial and am looking forward to the next installment.
