She's playing hard to get… to win the MMA fighter of her ultimate fantasies in a sultry new novel from New York Times bestselling author Lori Foster…

Vanity Baker loves a good, clean match, but she's not above playing a little dirty. She's wanted Stack "The Wolf" Hannigan from day one. Seems as though the best way to corral the famously commitment-phobic fighter is to insist on keeping it casual. And her plan works—deliciously well—until Stack's past steps out of the shadows.

Stack learned early to stay free of attachments. But with sexy, forthright Vanity, he's the one always left wanting more. Then his troublemaking family comes back into the picture, threatening everything Stack cares about—Vanity included. Suddenly he realizes they're much more than friends with benefits. He's ready to go to the mat for her…but will it be in time to protect the woman who's tamed him for good?

The Ultimate series of Lori Foster’s is one of my favourites! I’ve read each book from this series so far and have loved every one. Big macho, alpha-male fighters, falling in love with strong, independent girls! Throw in a little suspense and a few sizzling scenes, what more could I ask for?

Stack and Vanity have had an attraction for some time, so Vanity decided to convince Stack to go with her to Cannon and Yvette’s wedding in exchange for a night of passion. I could see that they both had deeper feelings for one another, and the more time they spent together, the harder it was for them to be apart. Stack introduced Vanity to his Mother and sister Tabby, and he could see how much his family liked her.

There were a few hiccups and threats along the way, and I liked how independent Vanity was, she didn’t expect Stack to save her at every turn, instead she accomplished things for herself. Stack was the typical possessive male, trying to run off his friends if they looked at Vanity, but he was glad that they had his back.

Tough Love was another great read in the series, and despite a bit of miscommunication, it was good to see their relationship grow. I enjoyed the alternating perspectives between Stack and Vanity, as well as a few other characters that will get their own books soon. I like the way that Lori creates her worlds; Vanity and Stack are both good people and are willing to stand up for themselves if they feel threatened. They both have a great group of friends that will drop anything to be at their sides when needed. The suspense in this book wasn’t as dramatic as previous books, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. I am eager to get my hands on Armie and Merissa’s book… I can see some interesting pasts being revealed there!

“Let’s talk about something that isn’t provoking.” “Like what? Because honest to God, darlin’, after weeks of your verbal foreplay, I’m feeling pretty damned provoked.”

“Wow,” she said, eyeing each of them in turn. “Was there a casting call for certified studs that I somehow missed?”
