They will kiss and Merissa will become aware that Armie wants her, but he is still distant. Merissa will not let Armie go which means she has to pursue. Though Merissa will have a problem when accidents are happening around her and Armie’s past comes back.
Fighting Dirty is the fourth book to the series Ultimate by Lori Foster. I loved this book. So far, I’ve loved this series. Though as always I am a Lori Foster fan and I really loved that she went back to the stories with fighters, like the ones in SBC Fighters series. In this one she even brings back several of the main characters from the SBC Fighters series and Jude from the book Jude’s Law.
Alright, so Armie’s character is fantastic. He was not your typical hero. He was loud and known for his sexual exploits. But then he worked for kids and was sympathetic towards them. He was someone you could count on. Merissa was a woman who did the right thing and was just living her life. I liked Merissa but I wanted her to either take the chance and get closer to Armie or step away. Well she does take that step with Armie which I loved. Together they were perfect for each other because they completed each other. Armie was not that outrageous and Merissa was not that shy.
The problems that occurred were due to Armie’s past and Merissa’s. Armie’s past I had wondered about since the beginning of the series. I had a couple guesses and one of them turned out right. I liked that Foster will resolve the issue which helps Armie move on. Merissa’s problems weren’t from that long ago in the past, more towards the present. I thought that the problems they faced were well developed and it made me want to know more.
Lori Foster is continuing with the series but the next book comes out in January of 2017. So I have a bit of a wait but I have no doubt I will enjoy it.
