Under Pressure

Body Armor Series - Book 1

By Lori Foster

HQN - January 2017

Contemporary Romance

Under Pressure is the first story in Lori Foster's Body Armor series. This new series follows Ms Foster's Ultimate series and is tied to additional ones. If you want to read everything in order, start with SBC, then read Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor series, which ties into Love Undercover. Then there is Hard Knocks, and the Ultimate series. Then comes the new Body Armor series.

Leese Phelps had left professional fighting. He knew he would never be at the top, and chose instead to be at the top in a different aspect. He had hired on at Body Armor, a security agency. His newest assignment was one Catalina Nicholson. He was to be her personal bodyguard, and her safety was his primary goal. And her need for help was evident from the first moment he saw her.

Cat had been in danger from the moment she learned just how depraved certain men she knew were. She had escaped from their clutches once, but she'd learned that her new haven was anything but safe. Luckily, Leese had shown up, saved the day, and had become her hunky hero. For Cat had no doubt Leese was a hunk, and he was a hero. Anyone with eyes could see how well built he was. And he was a hero for always trying to do the right thing - even if it was something she didn't want him to do because it put him at risk. He may not see himself as a hero, but she knew better.

And with dangerous men after her, Cat would do whatever she could to protect him too.

Under Pressure finally gives Leese his story. He had made some bad choices in the past, but had quickly tried to rectify them. He'd been the best friend, and the confidant. Now, he was a hero saving his own heroine, and I adored watching as he found his own match. I had difficulties with Cat as a heroine. I sometimes could not understand her thought process. However, there was no question she was a fighter, honest, loyal, and determined to do the right thing. I look forward to additional stories in the Body Armor series.
