Fighting Dirty (Ultimate #4), by Lori Foster

5 Armie is swoon worthy stars!!!


I cherished reading every moment in this book the good and the bad.  I wanted to read it in one evening and I also wanted to savor every page.  If you started with the beginning of the Ultimate series with Cannon’s book (No Limits) then you have definitely been waiting for the final book with Armie.  We have watched Armie fight his attraction for Merissa for far to long!!

Keep calm

Oh Armie where do I begin…. *sigh*. Armie is moving up in MMA he has just been courted by the SBC.  If you have read any of Lori Foster’s previous books you would know it is another fabulous fighter series. I love how the SBC characters are back in play in this book!!  I love hearing whatever crazy shirt or underwear Armie is wearing that day.  Some of the sayings on the shirts were hilarious!  Enough about Armie in his undies… *sigh again*He starts off still avoiding Merissa because of something that happened in the previous book (no spoilers read the book!!) Then Armie happens to be there when Merissa is in trouble after that he can’t even think about not being with her.  Armie’s past is riddled with women some good some bad. He’s managed to build up quite a rapport with the ladies. One previous lady has left him with a scarred past that he doesn’t want Merissa to be linked to because she is so sweet and nice.  Armie looks at her like a china doll (actually all of the ultimate guys look at their wives like that).  When bad things start happening to Merissa he automatically thinks it’s his fault.  Should he push her away and protect her or pull her close to protect her???

Merissa I didn’t know you had it in you girl!! I love how through most of the book even though Armie is the fighter Merissa is the one fighting dirty.  Matter of fact when the phrase is first mentioned it’s for Merissa saying she’s fighting dirty.  There are so many good parts with Merissa I didn’t know where to start.  The fact that she has always and will always love Armie is amazing.  I don’t think I could handle watching him walk away with woman after woman and still stand.  She is made of tough stuff!!  Cannon her brother has always been there to protect her but honestly any of the guys at the rec center would protect her because she is sweet, honest, and bakes for them all the time.  All of the craziness that happens in this book to her and she holds up so unbelievably well!! I love how when Lori Foster writes women characters she writes strong independent women.  I must say without going into to much spoiler detail that in the one scene where Armie is mad but Rissy doesn’t want him to kick her out she runs to the bedroom and starts to get naked! Genius!! No man can argue with a naked women haha!! Will Rissy be able to crack Armie’s heart open? Or has it been open to her this whole time??

extra thoughts…

Ok so the family dynamic in Lori Foster’s series are fantastic!! They may not all be blood relatives but you couldn’t imagine not having them there.  I love how she shows that while they do get on each other’s nerves sometimes they are always there to back each other up!  Her characters are amazing so strong but not to strong that they don’t break every once in a while.  I know while reading her books that I will always be on an emotional roller coaster ride.

Leese really redeemed himself in this book for me I honestly can’t wait to read more about him.  Will we also be seeing more of Bray??  My heart hurt for that kid…

I received an ARC of this book from Lori Foster and HQN books for my honest opinion. Honestly I loved this book it was a fantastic way to end a series.
