Summary

"Hang on for this completely unexpected hard-hitting ride!" (Fresh Fiction)

Not needing him won’t stop her from wanting him....

Trucker Sterling (Star) Parson is no stranger to the challenges a woman faces, both in her industry and in life. But she can take care of herself. She’s never needed - or wanted - a man around...until she meets Cade McKenzie. The take-charge bar owner sets off all kinds of alarm bells for Sterling, but he also sets her heart racing.

Cade’s lived in Ridge Trail long enough to know trouble when he sees it, and the moment Sterling - Star - walks into his bar, he knows trouble’s come to call. Secrets run deep in the small town, and Cade can tell Star’s got as many as he does, leaving him itching to uncover every last one. But finding common ground will mean trusting one another, further feeding an intense attraction that’s growing impossible to resist.

Don't miss The Honeymoon Cottage, an all-new romantic family saga by Lori Foster where locals of a quirky small town help an on-the-shelf wedding planner find her own happily-ever-after.

this is the Lori Foster I love

Yes. This is what I've been missing from LF. I loved her "Men Who Walk On The Edge of Honor", "Love Undercover" ,"SBC FIGHTERS" and "Ultimate" series. I love the men in these series who are tough alpha males that toe the line between good and bad, but for a good cause. This book falls right in with those and I'm here for it. I loved that for once the heroine in her book wasn't a damsel in distress, she actually knew a little about protecting herself and was doing what needed to be done to help others. The hero is an alpha male, former military and extremely observant. He notices the heroine coming in his bar and is protective from a distance. The book starts off mysterious and LF continues with the suspense of the secondary plot throughout the book. I loved that the backstories of both characters are almost similar in nature which makes for a bond. The chemistry is magnetic between the two and LF is never shy when it comes to the romance part of the story.  Sex was fire. I really enjoyed the relationship that the Mackenzie family had with each other and how the heroine fit right in almost immediately. I really enjoyed this book. Can't wait to read the next one.

Best book I listened to in a long time.

Interesting storyline. Well done Lori. Great narration. Suspenseful but not overly violent. I can’t wait for the next one.

I loved it!

Lori Foster does it again. The story is action packed. The strong Hero and even stronger Heroine is a nice change. She can handle herself but likes it that the hero wants to protect her. Bravo I loved it

Very enjoyable

Went into this blind and didn't know what to expect and definitely wouldn't expect a romance between vigilantes? Mercenaries? Well, it's high on the steam meter, that's for sure. Enjoyed this quite a bit and love a good savior story. Must get the second because kitties! ❤️

Just No!

I have 4 hours left to listen and honestly, I'm using it as background noise. Just not my cup of tea.

Good story but wrong narrator

The narrator is not the best for a romance story. His deep voice makes it hard to do the female voices well and the male voices sound the same.

Falls flat.

Struggled to finish. Too unbelievable. Sex was lame. might as well been closed door.
