{Review} Tough Love by Lori Foster

Tough Love - Lori Foster

Vanity wants Stack, but she knows better than to go about getting him in the conventional way. Dating and relationships aren’t really his thing, and the last thing she wants is to become another notch in his bedpost — or scare him off for good. So rather than simply make herself available to him, she plays unavailable, letting him think that a romp in the sheets is all she’s after. And if she plays her cards right, he’ll keep coming back for more.

 

The Verdict: At this point, all it takes to make me pick up a book is Lori Foster’s name on the cover, but if you follow my reviews, you probably already know that. The guys in the Ultimate series are all kinds of hot, and Stack’s been a fun one to follow in the previous books.

 

Vanity has her sights set on Stack, but the tough fighter tends to turn tail and run at the first sign that a woman wants more than a one-night stand with him. But if she doesn’t do something, he’ll never consider anything more than flirty friendship with her, so she offers him exactly what he thinks he wants — sex. And nothing more. At the end of the last book, she put her plan into play, getting Stack to agree to be her date to the wedding, with a guarantee that they can turn up the heat afterward. And thinking Vanity’s not after more than one night of naked fun, Stack falls right into her trap.

 

The chemistry between Stack and Vanity burns up the pages, so the story gets off to a fast but awesome start. As they get to know each other better, Vanity’s feelings simply grow deeper, and Stack starts feeling emotions he never expected. But it also comes to light just how much Stack values honesty in people, and Vanity hasn’t exactly been honest about her intentions. I won’t give it away, but it doesn’t take a genius to figure out what their conflict becomes.

 

Lori Foster has done it again, creating strong, likable women and the irresistible men they fall in love with. Every single page has substance, too, bringing Stack and Vanity closer together rather than relying on contrived drama to speed things up. If you haven’t checked out this series yet, do it NOW. The Ultimate series is the ultimate romance readers’ story, and the hot, strong men are the icing on the cake.
