Vanity Baker loves a good, clean match, but she's not above playing a little dirty. She's wanted Stack "The Wolf" Hannigan from day one. Seems as though the best way to corral the famously commitment-phobic fighter is to insist on keeping it casual. And her plan works—deliciously well—until Stack's past steps out of the shadows.
Stack learned early to stay free of attachments. But with sexy, forthright Vanity, he's the one always left wanting more. Then his troublemaking family comes back into the picture, threatening everything Stack cares about—Vanity included. Suddenly he realizes they're much more than friends with benefits. He's ready to go to the mat for her…but will it be in time to protect the woman who's tamed him for good?
read it, track it is a way for me to track books for my reading challenges and they will be super short.
Tough Love is my favorite book in Lori Foster’s Ultimate series. (My least fave book cover though. LOL)
Stack and Vanity is a great couple. It was fun to watch them get their HEA, their story is sexy, sweet and fun and like previous stories in the series has a bit of suspense to keep you on your toes.
I think I enjoyed Tough Love more than the previous book, Holding Strong because Stack wasn’t over the top alpha like Denver was. And I like Vanity more than Cherry. So over all the couples were different and I connected with this pair more and felt like their romance wasn’t just about the heat between them.
After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.
While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).
