“We don’t get to see heroines this competent and up-front in romance novels so I really appreciate the author for creating someone who is so strong and independent. ”
~ Under the Covers

I was really thrilled for this to be Sahara’s book. She has an interesting situation as the boss of Body Armor, an elite bodyguard agency. But she wasn’t the original owner. Her brother was. Now that he has gone missing, Sahara is the one running things. She is looking to add another member to her team when Brand Berry, but he isn’t as accommodating as she wishes him to be.

It’s generally a hit or miss for me when it comes to Lori Foster books. However, I found that this book kind of landed in the middle for me. While I liked a lot of aspects, including the hero and heroine, some other areas were a little flat. I mainly think the pacing was a little slow, especially at the beginning. This is concerning for me since this is meant to be a Romantic Suspense novel, so pacing is always key.

But the romance between Brand and Sahara does kind of make up for it. I enjoyed their banter and I especially love Sahara’s strong personality. We don’t get to see heroines this competent and up-front in romance novels so I really appreciate the author for creating someone who is so strong and independent. Sahara is definitely a heroine I would love to be friends with.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!

It’s been awhile since I’ve picked up a Lori Foster. I really need to, I enjoyed the books I did read. I do need there to be a good balance between the romance and the action. If they are off, I can enjoy it, but it won’t blow my socks off either.
