Power. Brute strength. Unforgettable moves. It’s no wonder Harper Gates hasn’t been able to get her fling with Gage “Savage” Ringer out of her head. Months have passed since she laid eyes—or any other body parts—on him. Months without a word of contact… until, sidelined by injury, he comes back to town.
Staying focused on his training seemed like a smart move to Gage, even if he thought about Harper every day. Seeing her again only makes it clear how much is at stake. He’s got one night to earn back her trust. One night to show her that behind his breathtaking skill and ripped body is a man who’ll give her everything she needs.
Have you ever picked up a book just because of the author? I know, that’s a really silly question, of course you have. That’s one of the main reasons why I picked up Hard Knocks. Imagine my surprise when I realized that this little novella was the beginning of a series that I’ve been looking forward to. I knew it was coming, I just wasn’t paying attention when I picked it up.
Hard Knocks is the prequel novella to Lori Foster’s Ultimate series. It’s an excellent opening even though it only mentions the characters that I’m most looking forward to seeing more of…namely Cannon. That’s okay though because Hard Knocks gave readers a lot to look forward to in the series. New characters as well as the promise of cameos from Foster’s Love Undercover series, which is where Cannon was first introduced. Gage and Harper give you just a taste of this world, but it wasn’t lacking. There was plenty of heat between these two. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for not only the characters that readers already know, but the new ones that we’re sure to become just as inevitably attached.
Cannon’s book, the first official book in the series, No Limits, is due to be released near the end of August. You can get a feel for the series a little bit sooner when Hard Knocks is released on August 4.
