Playing it safe has never felt so dangerous…
Justice Wallington knows how to harness his strength and intimidating size—skills he put to good use first in the MMA cage, and now as a bodyguard at the Body Armor agency. But no opponent has ever left him feeling as off balance as his new client, heiress Fallon Wade. Far from a spoiled princess, she’s sweet and intriguingly innocent. It’s a risk-free assignment, until he’s required to fake a relationship with her in order to blend in.
Sheltered from the world after a family tragedy, Fallon longs to experience life—going to bars, dancing, talking to strangers. Not easy with a huge, lethal-looking bodyguard shadowing her every move. Justice seems like her polar opposite, but pretending to be a couple stirs undeniable heat. And when danger strikes again, it’s not just her safety in jeopardy, but a passion that’s real, raw and absolutely against the rules…

It was a passing glance at first, as if he’d felt her scru­tiny and was only mildly curious. But then those dark sinner’s eyes shot back and locked onto her.

Fallon couldn’t have been more flustered if he’d reached out and touched her.

Her father, realizing he’d lost his audience, jerked around to see her, too, and then her mother, as well.


With all eyes on her, Fallon cleared her very dry throat and squeaked, “I’ll be down in a minute.” Es­caping back into her room with alacrity, she closed the door and collapsed against it.

Hand to her thundering heart, she thought, potent.

Definitely macho.

And big. Oh, so big.

Not at all what she’d been expecting.

Okay, maybe having a protection detail wouldn’t be so bad after all. She had prepared to meet the usual Men in Black clone with the requisite suit, dark glasses and grim expression.

Instead, he wore sneakers, faded jeans and a graphic T-shirt with an open flannel for added warmth. If she hadn’t heard her father lecturing, she would have as­sumed him to be someone else.

Maybe a landscaper.

Or, given his cross demeanor, something more nefarious—like a burglar.

And don’t miss the first book in the Body Armor Series!

HARD JUSTICE - Now Available 1

 My Review:  Hard Justice is the second book in Lori Foster's Body Armor Series, which is a spinoff from her Ultimate Series, which, by the way, was awesome.  If you read that series, you will be familiar with some of the characters in this series, though this is absolutely a standalone and does not require you to read prior installments in order to thoroughly enjoy this book.  Former MMA fighter Justice Wallington has joined the Body Armor Agency as a bodyguard.  He's tall, built, and totally hot, as you can imagine a former heavyweight MMA fighter would be.  His assignment is to be bodyguard to one Fallon Wade.  Fallon has very overprotective and very wealthy parents, even though she is 22 years old, and due to circumstances from her past, they insist she has a bodyguard.  She is ready to finally spread her wings and experience life to the fullest, something she has not yet had the opportunity to do.  Even though Fallon's family is rich, she is down to earth, insists on paying her own way and works, and doesn't judge anyone based on their socioeconomic status.  Fallon is also very beautiful, though totally unaware of this, and the the way she dresses and acts let you know that she is totally oblivous to her beauty.

Fallon's beauty is somethingn that Justice doesn't miss, however, and neither do the other men that are around Fallon.  He soon finds himself unable to keep from crossing that professional line from bodyguard to boyfriend.  When the threat of danger becomes real, however, Justice is willing and does do anything and everything he can to protect Fallon, and he has his colleagues and friends at his back with he and Fallon during the process.

Hard Justice is something fans of Lori Foster will most definitely enjoy, as well as fans of contemporary romance in general.   The romance was hot, the story itself is one that you will delve right into and stay into from beginning to end, and there is the added element of suspense and danger that makes Hard Justice a very entertaining and intersting read.  Definitely grab this one.

  1. If I was being chased by bad guys , I would go hide at the police station !

  2. I would go hide somewhere where there are a lot of people, like a concert venue or sports arena.

  3. If I were being chased, I would hope to fit in at a downtown crowd.
