Worth the Wait

According to a recent Facebook post by author Lori Foster, Worth the Wait is her 100th unique story, which is an amazing accomplishment! Writing for just over twenty years in the romance genre, her books obviously resonate with readers who keep coming back for more. The first novels of hers I read w ...

Hard Justice

When I think of Lori Foster, I think of MMA fighters and bodyguards; therefore, I was not surprised to learn that the hero in Hard Justice is a former MMA fighter, who is now a bodyguard. Ms. Foster definitely has a knack for writing these protective, tough alpha-males, and she’s written a lot of ...

Don't Tempt Me

Don’t Tempt Me is in many ways a typical Lori Foster book.  Chronicling salacious going-ons in a small-town setting among working-class people, she's been writing about a world where everyone’s horny and the male lead is irritatingly controlling since the 1980s.  Only this one features the h ...

Bare It All

Bare It All was a difficult book to grade because despite its many flaws, I also had a hard time putting it down. In the end, though, when I look back at the reading experience, I remember more of the book's problems and less of why I turned the pages so quickly. The book picks up ...

When You Dare

As a fan of Lori Foster’s writing, I used to think that she could write anything at all and I’d be happy to read it. Now I’m not quite so sure. Foster is a master at giving uber-alpha males personalities and translating their tight-lipped intensity into understandable guy behavior. This boo ...

Trace of Fever

Trace of Fever is the second in the Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor series by prolific author Lori Foster. In the preface, Ms. Foster writes the series is of “uber-alpha hunks featuring private mercenaries who are big, capable, a little dangerous and [she hopes] oh-so-sexy.” I didn’t read the f ...

My Man Michael

I decided to read My Man Michael because the recent controversy made me curious. The idea of mixed martial arts fighters as heroes still strikes me as a cool idea. However, while I like futuristics, in this case, the futuristic element didn't work for me. I'm also annoyed to find yet another futuris ...

Simon Says

Lori Foster's latest, Simon Says was a pretty ho-hum read which would have been soon forgotten if not for the hero. What made me ultimately decide to it give a better grade than I normally would is all due to the character of Simon Evans. It's been a long time since I read such a wonderfully written ...

B
Impetuous

The blurb on the back cover of Lori Foster's Impetuous did not do it justice. Advertised as the story of a shy woman with an inner femme fatale who has lady-killer Tyler Ramsay breaking a sweat, it reflects none of the complexity of this compact yet well-fleshed story. Carlie McDaniels, a shy but s ...

Too Much Temptation

Lori Foster is capable of writing good romance - The Winston Brothers was a solid B read for me (we didn't post a review for this book since we'd reviewed each of the three short stories when they were published in earlier anthologies). She also writes great love scenes. At times, though, she affi ...
