Under Pressure by Lori Foster
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Danger and heat in balanced perfection….
I’m a huge fan of this author and her MMA fighters have been some of my most favourite reads. Relatable characters, great storytelling, humour and heat come together once again in the start of a new series that I’m hooked on already!
Right now, who can she trust is the most important question in Catalina Nicholson’s life. Cat is a jumbled mix of independence, vulnerability and, above all, honesty and responsibility. She is looking for truth and, despite being afraid of the answers she might find, she is determined to see things through. She was straight forward to a fault and seeing her bring more than one strong man to a halt through humour and honesty was refreshing.
Leese Phelps seems too good to be true and Cat is going to reserve judgement until she knows, until she feels, he is in her corner. Their meeting and the quest for answers is full of opportunities for Leese to prove himself either way. And does he ever!
“Catalina Nicholson affected him in too many ways. He wanted her. She made him laugh. She wrenched his heart.”
Leese was the perfect match for the pint-sized dynamo. He was equally interested in the truth and was going to make sure Cat was going to survive the danger she found herself in. And Leese was not alone as the entire Body Armor security agency, as well as his fellow fighters, supported him and Cat in their complicated quest. Their journey felt like a quest as they worked on gathering all the puzzle pieces together while dodging enemies at every turn.
A great start to the series!
