He can protect anything except his heart

Leese Phelps's road hasn't been an easy one, but it's brought him to the perfect job — working for the elite Body Armor security agency. And what his newest assignment lacks in size, she makes up for in fire and backbone. But being drawn to Catalina Nicholson is a dangerous complication, especially since it could be the very man who hired Leese who's threatening her.

What Catalina knows could get her killed. But who'd believe the sordid truth about her powerful stepfather? Beyond Leese's ripped body and brooding gaze is a man of impeccable honour. He's the last person she expects to trust — and the first who's ever made her feel safe. And he's the only one who can help her expose a deadly secret, if they can just stay alive long enough...

I'm thinking MMA fighters are the new military special ops men of the romance world. I approve wholeheartedly!

Leese Phelps doesn't understand how Catalina Nicholson's mind works. It seems the woman has no sense of self-preservation, but thankfully Body Armor security agency tasked him with protecting her. Hiding out from the bad guys was never so sexy, especially since Cat has made it abundantly clear she wants him guarding her body in every way possible. Leese tries keeping his head on straight and his hands to himself, but Cat makes a compelling roommate, and soon the two can't resist. Cat knows what's coming for her, but she's terrified to tell Leese and the Body Armor crew the depth of the trouble she's in. Can she be protected without sharing everything with them?

Ms. Foster is one of the best in the business for a reason…every book delivers the perfect mix of suspense, story and sex for fans of just about any genre. UNDER PRESSURE, the first in the Body Armor series (a spinoff of the Ultimate series) is just as great as everything she does. Leese and Cat had fabulous chemistry, and I loved how Cat pursued the hell out of Leese until he caved – it was a nice change from the dude always chasing the chick! But once they finally hooked up, the sex scenes were yummy and well done! This was a couple I really rooted for, and I am absolutely salivating over the fact that Justice's story is next! I can't wait!!

Bottom Line: No OM/OW or sharing; condom use; no BDSM/kink; no sexual assault; violence/murder.
