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

Favorite Quotes:

Howler’s good with other animals. Basically, he’s an affectionate grandma in a loose suit of fur. If he could bake biscuits, he would.

Good times or bad, family hangs on like a too-tight shirt. You don’t get to outgrow it, you can’t wash it when it’s dirty and it clings even worse when you sweat.

My Review:

This was only my second experience reading the prolific Lori Foster, but I plan to make perusing her engaging stories a frequent habit. I enjoyed her curiously
ARC received for review

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 (Road to Love #3) by Lori Foster is a new contemporary romance with a suspense element in the Road to Love series. Even though this is the third book in the series, it is easily read as a standalone.

Charlotte Parrish was taken in and unofficially adopted by the Crews family when her mother passed away. The brothers have always treated her like their little sister. She gives as good as she gets while managing their

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
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

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
This was such a sweet, steamy, and suspenseful story. This is the third book in the series and works well as a standalone, however I wish I had read the previous books prior. Family plays such an important part in this book and I would have really appreciated really understanding and knowing the brothers in this book a little better. The book kicks off with Charlotte having car trouble and Mitch helping a girl out. There is a connection between the two when they meet, but it is complicated. ...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

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
Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews
Lori Foster brings all of her best writing traits to the table in All Fired Up; a bad boy hero who is really a great man, a feisty heroine who proves she is so much stronger than most give her credit for, a tantalizing plot filled with family secrets, love, and a bit of suspense to keep everyone on their toes.

Charlotte Parrish wants nothing more than to find a man who will treat her right and be by her side through good times and bad someone like her pseudo brothers who she works for in the

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..

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

All Fired Up by Lori Foster is the third book in the Road to Love series. I never read the previous books in the series; however, I had no difficulty following the story. It can be read as a stand-alone.

The hero of this story, Mitch Crews, had a hard life. Recently released from prison, he was determined to turn his life around, and in the process locate his half-brothers, Brodie and Jack. He had no idea what to expect when he found them, however their reaction to his revelation was more than he

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

such a great series. Loving these characters and meeting new ones. Such fierce loyalty and I live how everything comes back to family.
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

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.

I enjoyed Mitch and Charlotte’s

*I received a free copy of All Fired Up. This has in no way influenced my voluntary review which is honest and unbiased.*

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
Amy ~ Love At 1st Read
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

Satisfying romance…

I know when I read anything by this author, the story will be well written with all the elements of a classic romance. If that sounds negative at all then I’m saying it wrong because what that means is well-developed characters, intriguing circumstances and heat and drama to spare…

Charlotte and Mitch’s story had all those things as they met by accident but soon found themselves falling in love while family drama raged around them. They were easy to like as they

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'm really enjoying this Road to Love Series, and this book has to be my favorite installment so far. The characters from all of the books have been great, but there was just something so lovable about both main characters, Charlotte and Mitch, in this one!

Watching Charlotte and Mitch get to know one another was wonderful, but my favorite part of this book is the way the Crews family so readily accepted Mitch into their fold. He was so prepared for them to reject him, and it was heartwarming to

Oh this is one awesome story as are all of Lori’s books! I have not read any of her books that I have read that I couldn’t put down and this one is no exception! Thank you for writing such great books Lori!

All Fired Up is the third book in the Road to Love series by Lori Foster and I believe it's the last one, at least it wrapped up nicely to be the last book in the series about the Crews family.

Our heroine, Charlotte has been around since book 1, Driven to Distraction.She is like a little sister to Brodie and Jack, the Crews brothers featured in previous books. She works with them as their spunky office manager.

Charlotte is all business when she is at work and she believes she can apply a

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
