Wanting more from Foster

The moment has finally come when I was able to pick up the copy of Lori Foster’s latest book in the series of SBC Fighters, Back in Black.

“Drew Black, a president of the SBC fighting organization, is a controversial as they come.  But this hotheaded entrepreneur is a perfect match for his popular sports club venture: uncompromising and extreme.  Maybe too extreme.  With a reputation for saying what he thinks, Drew’s been causing a lot of friction.  That’s why someone’s been called in to clean up his image, before he does any permanent damage.

The lucky lady is Gillian Noode, a PR expert who has smoothed out the rough edges on many a man.  But Drew is rougher than anyone she’s ever met, and he refuses to change for any woman, for any reason.  To make matters more complicated, Gillian’s starting to like him raw.  Now opposites aren’t simply attracting, they’re igniting. But in the rising heat, who will end up on top?”

This book, Back in Black, along with all other Lori Foster’s books are amazing to read.  They are exciting, sexy and fun to read.  This book was no exception, it was fantastic.  I didn’t have to read the plot because I knew I would like it, but I read it anyways.

In this most recent story the two characters are Drew Black and Gillian Noode.  They are steamy and complete opposites.  It is exciting when they finally get together but they are not the only characters.  On the side is Brett and Audrey another complete opposites.  Brett is the fighter and Audrey is the woman against the fighting but the two can’t stay away from each other.  I loved the villain in this story, a little crazy but you didn’t know exactly at the beginning.

The writing is fantastic with the enticing plot which is very funny and strikingly fast to read.  I couldn’t put down the book with the witty dialogue, steamy scenes with delicious characters.  There is some about fighters that gets your blood boiling.

Now the question, is there another book to the SBC Fighters series and is it coming out soon?!

Practice Makes Perfect by Julie James

Julie James is definitely an author to look out for.  Her plot and characters are witty, determined, funny, and believe in sabotage and deceiving but with the best attentions.

“Payton Kendall and J.D. Jameson are lawyers who know the meaning of objection.  A feminist to the bone, Payton has fought hard to succeed in a profession dominated by men.  Born wealthy, privileged, and cocky, J.D. has fought hard to ignore her.  Face-to-face, they’re perfectly civil.  They have to be.  For eight years they have kept a safe distance and tolerated each other as coworkers for one reason only: to make partner at the firm.

But all bets are off when they’re asked to join forces on a major case.  Though apprehensive at first, they begin to appreciate each other’s dedication to the law-and the sparks between them quickly turn into attraction.  But the increasingly hot connection does not last them will be named partner.  Now it’s an all-out war.  And the battle between the sexes is bound to make these lawyers hot under the collar…”

I loved the sexual tension that Payton and J.D. had between the two.  Both of them had it from the very beginning but wouldn’t acknowledge it.  So now as the tension of the partnership rises the tension is even worse and finally the two start working towards a similar goal.  But their sexual tension is not the only thing that is there.  Each of them have their own prejudices against each other with how they grew up but are they really so different?  The two will find they will be able to relate to each other as they grow closer through the case.

I loved this book.  It was a fast pace modern romance which kept you turning the pages.  The book has its up and downs, and some surprising results as the end of the book concludes.  “Practice Makes Perfect” gives an ending you are happy for.
