A surprise inheritance reunites a mixed martial arts fighter with the woman he's never forgotten in the first in a smoldering new series from New York Times bestselling author Lori Foster
Cannon Colter is quintessential hero material: chiseled jawline, shredded bodythe works. He's also the guy who rescued Yvette Sweeny from kidnappers, only to put an end to her romantic dreams. These days, she's older, smarter, determined to face whatever life throws her way. Even the prospect of sharing a house and business with Cannon.
Cannon knew Yvette wanted him three years ago. But she was youngand some things are worth waiting for. Thrown together by her grandfather's legacy, he realizes how deep Yvette's scars really go, and how much danger lurks in their quiet town. As pent-up desire explodes between them, protecting her becomes the only fight that matters. And he'll break all the rules to do it .
Muscles, mystery, and emotions dominate Foster's Ultimate series launch. Cannon Colter helped save flirty Yvette Sweeny's life. As much as he wanted to make her his, she was too young and the time wasn't right, so he spent the next three years building a career as a mixed martial arts fighter and putting Yvette out of his mind. Then the death of Yvette's grandfather reunites Cannon and Yvette in a small Ohio town. Yvette is finally able to confront her past, her feelings for Cannon, and her struggle to trust him, but can the sweetly burgeoning romance survive the machinations of those work against it? The romance simmers slowly and mystery is woven into the plot. Foster (Dash of Peril) cleverly builds three-dimensional characters to populate the predictable but well told and satisfying story.

Cannon is one sexy fighter!!!
Cannon Colter, SBC fighter, rescued Yvette Sweeny from kidnappers 3-1/2 years ago. They had an undeniable connection but at 18, she was too young for him. Now she's back in town and more beautiful than ever. She still has issues from the kidnapping and Cannon vows to help her get over them. After that, he means to claim her for his own. Will a psycho ex-boyfriend keep them apart?
Fantastic story! Lori Foster NEVER disappoints. She's a master at writing MMA fighters and the women who love them. Cannon is a good guy. Everything he does is for the good of his neighborhood and for the good of the woman he loves. He's a sexy, tough alpha man and I love to see him take charge. Yvette is a lucky woman to have Cannon on her side. I love the fact that if you love one fighter, all the fighters stand by your side. The sense of family amongst them all is heartwarming. I can't wait until Armie gets his own story.
When is Armie's story coming out??
I loved this story, it was good. Had me interested the whole entire way. But Armie drew me in an held me. Cannon I loved him, he was so sweet and dedicated and protective.. He was hot. But Armie has to have a story. He is not done here. And I am completely smitten with him and his reasons for pushing Marissa away so far. And he does it on purpose something happened between them and I am dying to know what it is. But about Cannon and Yvette, they fit good; even though they had some set backs on both sides they fit and it went the way I thought it would, with both of them realizing the past is just that and that they both grew up now they have a good finish. But is Armie getting a story? I hope he is.
I have loved all of Lori Foster's book and this one did not disappoint. I'm not a fight fan and I don't read a lot of MMA romance books but I've been waiting for this series since "Getting Rowdy" when we first met Cannon. I read all of Ms. Foster's Fight series and loved it. "Causing Havoc was my favorite book, love Dean "Havoc" Connor! When he was mentioned in "Dash of Peril" I might of squealed...I was alone so no one will tell on me.
Cannon Colter is such a hot alpha male and I loved everything about him. Yvette Sweeny suffered a lot of tragedy and grief in her life. She has loved Cannon since she was 16 years old and she did everything to get his attention. What she didn't know is that she had it. Cannon knew he couldn't act on his feelings for she was to young. Yvette left Ohio three years ago. Since her grandfathers death she back and determined to show Cannon that she a different and stronger person then years ago. Cannon can now act on his feelings, but he's in for the fight of his life. To make Yvette see she needs him just as much as he needs her.
We are introduced to all the key players in the series and I can't wait for the next books.
