With Foster you are always going to get steamy no matter what it appears and that is fine with me as she gives her characters to be intriguing and well detailed. You want more out of her characters but always happy to get what you are given. Hard To Handle is just the book that will make you squirm with wanting more for both characters but you will be satisfed at the end of the book.
Harley Handleman is known as a fighter, an up and coming fighter who will be going all the way. Harley likes what he hears and will stop at nothing to get it. But Harley is never sure how things will turn out as he has had those chances but those cirumstances were out of his control. And contol is something Harley tries to maintain especially in the bedroom but that control will slip with Stasia.
Anastasia Bradley will always have her heart start beating at the sight of Harley but she knew better to try and mix herself with him. But that will not stop feelings to get into the mix. Stasia finds herself getting wrapped up into Harley’s world and his body as she is trying stay clear of an unknown enemy.
With re-reading Hard To Handle I knew the outcome and all the details but I still love to read it. Out of the books for the SBC Fighter series this once is a favorite and I tried to prolong the ending of this book.
I think what it is you get wrapped up into that fantasy of the very strong, protective man who wants nothing more than to protect you and help you in anyway. Which is how Foster created Harley exactly to be with the added bonus of his sexual desire in the bedroom. I liked how she also gave him a past which made him the hero even though he didn’t want to be labeled as such. Foster also created Stasia right as she was independent and wanted more. Her character was true throughout the book which made it all the more interesting to read.
I also liked how Foster created the side story of Barber, the musician, and Jasmine. They weren’t really side characters as half the book was probably about them as well. I loved the sexual tension and the fierceness of Jasmine. They were fun to read about.
Hard To Handle is definitely a book you will want to check out and is the third book to the series SBC Fighters.
