Start your review of All Fired Up
All Fired Up by Lori Foster is the third contemporary romance book in the Road to Love series. It worked well as a standalone novel. The novel also has an extra layer of suspense in it so, to me, it falls into a version of a romantic suspense novel.

When Charlotte Parrish has car trouble, she is accosted by a drunk leaving a nearby bar. A stranger, Mitch Crew, comes to her rescue. He has come to town looking for his half-brothers who he has never met. When his past catches up with him and

Read the first one and missed the second one. This was just ok. Charlotte and Mitch had some fireworks, but the bad guy stuff was just too drawn out. Plus I didn't like the on-again, off-again stuff with Ros and the boy's dad.

All Fired Up by Lori Foster is the third book in the Road To Love series- and the first book by Lori Foster that I've personally read! I know- shame on me for not reading books 1 and 2 first, but it isn't necessary! (Though- I am looking forward to going back and discovering how Brodie and Jack met their current partners).

This novel follows Mitch Crews; an ex-con who is looking for a place to settle after

Great characters although the family line was a bit intense. Needs more heat.
I had a few complex feelings about the story. It wasn’t like a love-hate scenario. I actually did enjoy the story.

After all who wouldn’t love showing up as a stranger and being excepted into a family immediately, no questions asked. Well, hardly any questions.

I love how calm and mellow Mitch is. But I felt his apprehension about being pushed so hard to accept and embrace the new family. Acceptance may

Hands down my favorite of the series, not just because I wanted Charlotte Parrish to get her story, but because Mitch Crews deserved a happily ever-after. I am a sucker for a hero who doesn’t know he’s worthy.

Mitch is a Crew and looks just like his Dad. He is also an ex-con, but he wants to meet his half-brothers and more than anything desires family. What he didn’t count on was Charlotte.

I loved this story from the way it unfolded to the way the Crews reacted to Mitch, especially Ros, their

The ending has me so happy that I'm smiling so hard and some tears squeezed out.
Im not sure what to say without spoiling it, but I will do my best. Lori Foster has never and will never dissapoint me. I am always ready for more. I am always on the edge of my seat. I am always looking for a fan to cool me down. And my cheeks always hurt from smiling and laughing so much.
Mitch was the perfect addition to the Crews family. Now I need to know if there will be another book or if I get to meet a new

This is the third book in the series. I think it is my favorite so far. This is Mitch and Charlotte's story. Charlotte was raised as one of the family but is not. Mitch was raised away from the rest of the Crews family but he most definitely is one of the family. Together, they are willing to tread so new waters.

This book all comes back to what makes us family. Mitch's half brothers welcome him like he was never out of their lives. They all protect Charlotte and their mom like they are

I loved Mitch and Charlotte’s story! It’s my favorite in the Road to Love series. There wasn’t anything that I didn’t like about this book. I loved Charlotte’s innocence and her love of family. I loved the way the rest of the family rallied around Mitch, especially since his expectations were so much different. I loved that even though Mitch had a very rough start in life, he was a very honorable and stand up guy. As with the previous books, animals, especially dogs, play an important part in ...more
In All Fired Up, Mitch Crews had recently come into town to learn more about the family he had grown up hearing about but never been a part of – his family. Mitch’s dad had been in and out of his life during his childhood and worse was that Mitch’s very existence had been kept a secret from everyone in the Crews family. Mitch knew that revealing to his half-brothers that – surprise – they have a brother they never knew about was risky but he had nothing left to lose. He was an ex-con from the ...more

Okay, so here’s the thing, I don’t know if it’s me or what but every time I pick up a Lori Foster book lately I feel like it’s soooooooooo long and with no reason to be. If you’re going to drag a romance story, it should probably drag in the romance department *shrug* This one did not. So again I find myself not exactly dissatisfied with the story, but certainly not excited either. Maybe I’m changing, I don’t know, but facts:

The suspense portion of this book was eye-rolling at best..

All Fired Up just might be my favorite of the Road to Love series! I loved Mitch so much. And Charlotte finally got to show everyone how amazing she was. (I'm pretty sure the other characters already knew, but I didn't know!)
There was a lot of strong family ties in this one, but there was also love and romance, and some acute danger to make things more real. And the danger

What a fantastic, emotional book this is. I absolutely loved it and was really absorbed from page one until the end. I really felt for Mitch, he had such a horrible childhood. Love how honest he is, and how much he really wants Charlotte. Can he really open up to his half brothers, when will he realize he’s no longer alone? Can he keep everyone safe from Newman? The book did keep me on edge. I especially love the sense of family and how much Mitch needed it. I loved each book in this series and ...more

Wow!!! Very well written, romantic suspense. Love Mitch & Charlotte, this just flows so well that it kept me glued to the pages and just seems real. The characters have depth and the plot is not rushed. They are totally opposite yet still have some similarities, Mitch is a loner by choice, Charlotte is a loner by lack of chance. He is all alpha yet she is feisty and bold enough to stand up to him. I haven't read any of the others in this series yet but LOVE this loving, compassionate, ...more

Do we always get our dream man? In Charlotte Parrish's case, she was sure she would. She had her mind set on someone settled and responsible and she was absolutely certain she could be happy. Meeting and falling for bad boy Mitch Crews was certainly not something she was prepared for.

Mitch has been looking for his half brothers and he has finally found them. Having finally found them, he then approaches them. Mitch hasn't been able to picture the reaction they will have when they discover that

After a messed up childhood and a stint in prison, Mitch has been busy establishing his new business and moving into new house, all with the end goal of introducing himself to his half siblings. Mitch’s plans derail after he finds his attention snagged by Charlotte as he comes to her unneeded rescue outside the local bar. He inadvertently meets his brothers, Brodie and Jack, and their mom, Rosalyn, sooner then planned when they also show up to help Charlotte out.

This book was absolutely, positively, amazing! I couldn’t wait to find out what happened, but when I was finished, I was so sad! I will definitely go back and read this one over again! Probably more than once! Lori Foster never disappoints but this one was something special! I received an ARC in return for an honest review.

I love Lori Foster but somehow fell behind on reading this series from her. I am so glad I picked this one up and loved it! I definitely need to go back and read the first two books because I loved both Brodie and Jack in this one. Honestly, I have to say I loved all the characters in this book. Mitch stole my heart, Charlotte was charming and you just have to love Jack and Brodie's mom.

It was a pleasure watching Charlotte's and Mitch's relationship develop as he learns to adjust to having a

I don't know why a romance needs almost 400 pages. A great epic romance, maybe, but this isn't a great epic romance. Maybe the justification is that there is a mystery/suspense element. Not much there either. I have loved Lori Foster's Buckhorn Brothers Series, Body Armor Series and others. So much so that she is an auto read for me. This series is making me rethink that. When

Many times heroes of romance are larger than life characters. Nothing wrong with that. We all need those characters to fuel our fantasies sometimes. But it takes real talent to make the lives of ordinary people not only interesting but extraordinary. That’s what Lori Foster achieves with her Road to Love series. Especially in her newest, All Fired Up. This series is filled with vivid characters and honest, believable relationships. Men who are good men. Rock solid, honest, down to earth, and ...more

Now, I don't know how it happened, but I have somehow missed the first 2 book in the Road To Love series, however this did not affect my enjoyment of All Fired Up.

I adored and felt so much for Mitch as he starts to overcome the horrible childhood he had, finds family and love where he least expects it.

His story is very emotional, and had me hooked from the first page to the last. I adored the way Charlotte and the others welcomed him

This is the third book in the Road to Love series by Lori Foster.

This really made me fall in love with Lori Foster all over again. As of this review, the second book in the series is on sale for $1.99. What a deal for such a great book. Pick it up if you love the idea of this book.

This has to be my favorite of all the Road to Love books. It's the third in the series, but you can easily read it as a standalone. I've been eager for Charlotte's story, and Lori Foster did not disappoint. Charlotte and Mitch were the perfect couple together and had that instantaneous connection that we all long for, but the slow-burn was definitely the way to go with this couple. I love it when I have to wait a while for a characters story and then we get it and it's so worth it.

Thank god I feel like I got something that I enjoyed after my last two books. This was a brother that no one knew about Mitch. Mitch story pretty much breaks your heart he did not have it easy, but even though he had a hard life he did not turn out as a jerk, lesson for all and he finally get a chance to have the family that he never had and the acceptance that he deserves and a chance at happiness and love with Charlotte.

"All Fired Up" (Road to Love Book 3) by Lori Foster is a fantastic read. I loved Mitch and Charlotte's story. This is a terrific addition to this series, packed with romance, passion, twists, humor, family, entertaining characters, rescue animals, and more. I loved catching up with the Crews family. I seriously hope we get more from this entertaining cast of characters in the future. Highly recommend to all fans of romance, family, and series.

The final book in the Road to Love series is a winner. A lot of action and plenty of romance. Mitch is the half brother that Brodie and Jack didn't realize they had. He's come to town to meet them and maybe connect with family. Charlotte is the office manager/surrogate sister to Jack and Brodie. They meet when her car gets a flat at the town watering hole and he rescues her from the local idiot bothering her. The attraction is instant but will his past get in the way? A fun, engaging book.

In “All Fired Up” (Road to Love #3) by Lori Foster we are brought back into the lives of the Crews family. This time Brodie and Jack get a surprise visit from a family member that they did not know existed. Mitch has had a hard life and is now looking to find a place to call home and some stability. He is not prepared for the reception he receives nor his attraction to Charlotte. But being an ex-con, he does come with some baggage that not only threatens his new found family but his resolve to ...more

Sometimes you anticipate an event so much that when it finally occurs, the reality is somewhat disappointing. Not so with this book, it delivered in a big way.....5 stars big! Lori is one of my go-to authors and this book does not disappoint. She tells a story of an emotionally wounded man and his search for a family and for love and acceptance. It is also about a wonderful woman who stands with him as he learns to accept that he is worthy. This story made me feel warm inside and left me with a ...more
