The Next Ultimate Guy in Line: Lori Foster on Tough Love

by Lori Foster, author of Tough Love

Oh, the peril of being the Ultimate guy in line right before Armie.

Every series has a fan-favorite secondary character—you know, the guy readers just latch on to in book one and keep falling for more in every subsequent release until finally, after much anticipation, he stars in a book of his own. In my Ultimate series, about a group of Mixed Martial Arts fighters and the women they unexpectedly fall for, the fan-favorite from day one has been bad boy Armie “Quick” Jacobson.

Ever since Hard Knocks, my Ultimate e-prequel novella about up-and-coming fighter Gage “Savage” Ringer, was released, I’ve had so many readers demanding Armie’s book. But it was Cannon “The Saint” Colter’s story, No Limits, that was the first full-length book in the series, and fortunately the reception was terrific. (Thank you for that, readers!)

Then I wrote Holding Strong, starring Denver “Predator” Lewis, and many of you proclaimed him a favorite—while still insisting Armie should be next to get a book of his own. (Y’all are persistent and I love it!)

I guess since Stack “The Wolf” Hannigan is the laid-back, relaxed, ultra-focused guy in the group, it was easy to look past him. Yet I’m hopeful that once you read Tough Love, you’ll love his story as much as I do.

Stack is once-burned when it comes to romantic entanglements, but Vanity Baker is a temptation he can’t ignore. Vanity fell hard the moment she met Stack, so she’s relentless when it comes to winning him over. Put them together, and the sexual tension is an unstoppable force that neither of them can resist.

In case you’re wondering, yes, Armie is in the book, teasing, supporting, and being all-around awesome, and good thing since trouble threatens not only Stack, but Vanity too. It takes the whole gang to help keep everyone safe, especially with Stack’s loony family also causing problems.

Do let me know if you enjoy Tough Love. I always love hearing from readers—whether the note is about Stack…or Armie. 😉

P.S. Just so you know, Armie’s book, Fighting Dirty, is scheduled to be released February 23rd, 2016.

About Tough Love:

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?

    I enjoyed Stack’s story, but I am really looking forward to reading Armie’s story. With Armie’s reputation, it had better be scorching hot! Otherwise, I’d be very disappointed.
