    If you are regular followers of the website, you might have caught on the fact that I read about 90% of my books 'blind', not knowing how the cover looks like and who wrote the book, just open the file with the book's name and get going. This said to explain that I had no idea this was Lori Foster's work at the beginning, but soon recognized the characters from the MMA series, that this is a spin-off, and silently cheered with high expectations of the coming events. I loved the characters, they had a rare originality to them, distinct qualities, that were easy to recognize and relate to. Leese Phelps, who's story started in the previous series, is tough, protective, capable, and intimidating as a bodyguard, yet caring, loving, and so tender when it came to Catalina Nicholson. Cat was a bit more complex character to know. She is in a tough spot, her life is in danger, the culprits after her are merciless and brutal. She managed to hide for six weeks on her own, and now, just in time, Body Armor security agency steps in to help. Yet she is aware of the fact that one wrong move and her loved ones are in danger for their lives, as well. Trust is hard to come by in that situation, it is a tightrope she has to balance on, she is exhausted after her run and hiding on her own, yet to let lose and give up all the information she has could put everyone around her in danger. In this situation, in my mind, she had a lot of room to be difficult, whiny, or clingy, yet she shows a backbone and desire to stand for herself, and fight for the justice to be done. All her life she has been told she is different and doesn't fit in, and finally, she finds people who accept her, embrace her, and care for her just as she is. Cat's attraction to Leese is immediate, she is burning for him and not about to hide it. The temptation is great to Leese since his adoration toward Cat has been just growing inside of him the more he gets to know her. The connection, understanding, the awe between them is palpable and glowing with heat, the love scenes between them are scorching hot yet filled with tender, loving warmth. The secondary characters were drawn with distinct lines, especially Justice. There were intrigue and humor to them in just the right doses to wake the interest and have me craving to find out about their destinies. The suspense builds up through the tale, with surprising twists taking the plot into new directions. The crescendo at the end is filled with fierce, cruel, and ruthless, on the edge action that comes to a heroic, sudden ending. This story is a delightful mix of intense suspense, deadly action, and cherished romance with a compelling plot with curious twists, and fascinating characters that allured my mind, promising an energized and exciting series to come! ~ Four Spoons with a teaspoon on the side

  • Fantastic

    Leese didn't start out as the good guy in the beginning but he turned himself around. He proved to the the other MMA men and woman that he can be trusted and counted on. I'm glad he got his own story in this new bodyguard series. He was given the task of guarding Catalina. Leese doesn't believe in mixing his job with pleasure but there is a chemistry between them that is proving to be harder to ignore.. Cat doesn't want to trust Leese because her life is on the line. Everyone who was supposed to be on her side betrayed her. She doesn't know if he sincere or not. Leese needs to prove to her that he isn't going to leave and he and the company will unravel the tangled web she is woven in. The book has suspense, sex, love, and some the old crew to show their loyalty. This book wants for nothing. I'm exited to read the next book in the series. "I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book."

  • Read this book now!

    I was so excited to read the first book of the newest series by Lori Foster! I'm happy to say that I loved it as much as I'd hoped. Lori's stories always have great characters that pull you in and this one was no different. I really enjoyed the journey as Leese and Cat try to protect each other while they grew closer. They have fantastic chemistry! The bonus part, for me, was that the other characters in the book were familiar because I've read the Ultimate Series. While it's not necessary to read any other books before this one, I like visiting old friends. I was lucky enough to win an ARC of Under Pressure just by following Lori's Facebook page. I'm SO glad I did! Great read!

  • Hard to let go in the end.

    Under Pressure can embed itself so deeply under the skin, that the reader becomes a part of the action. There were moments where Catalina and Leese stole my breath. The maze of twists and turns were endless but beyond all the adrenaline was an intriguing story worth sinking my teeth into. Hard to let go in the end.

  • Take care

    Leese meets his new charge under less than perfect circumstances. He can see why she needs protection. He just wants her to trust he will keep her safe. Even when it gets ugly. Catalina has been surviving on her own, and does not feel she needs help. Those that are after her are beyond reach, so what is the point. Now, some hot time, that she could use. There is more to this than just security. This book was an excellent start to a new series! I loved the characters. How strong the female lead is, how sassy. She knows what she wants. I am surprised the pages did not melt. The book is HOT! This author always gives us her best. I cannot wait to read the next book in the Body Armor series.

    Thanks for your feedback!
