Sometimes Fate delivers a left hook.
After Fate deals Supreme Battle Challenge (SBC) fighter Harley Handleman a sucker punch, his uncle secretly hires a pretty lifecoach to get Harley back in the ring of life. Anastasia Kelley has actually known Harley for years, but never as well as she's going to now.
Hot for his fighter's form, she has trouble keeping it professional, especially since Harley doesn't know she was hired. And when Anastasia turns the tables on him, it's as if he's been hit below the belt. But that's also where is uncontrollable lust for her burns.
Well what can I say.... I can say this, hard to handle is one hot, sexy and thrilling read. I love that Harley is a little kinky and is upfront about it. I liked that Stasia is not fawning all over him and has him worked out. Watching the sexual tension was fantastic, the honesty between them made it all the more interesting as the games where all out in the open.
I was a little worried this series would run out of steam but Lori Foster is such a magnificent story teller that I want to know more and I will be reading the next book just because I want to know about Drew who is in the firth book. So book 4 here I come.
