Review! Close Contact (Body Armor #3) by Lori Foster

Close Contact by Lori Foster


There’s no resisting a desire like this…

MMA fighter Miles Dartman’s casual arrangement with personal shopper Maxi Nevar would be many men’s fantasy. She seeks him out, they have mindblowing sex, she leaves. Rinse, repeat. Yet lately, Miles wants more. And when Maxi requests his services via the Body Armor security agency, he’s ready to finally break through her defenses—and protect her day and night.

Receiving a large inheritance has brought chaos and uncertainty into Maxi’s life. Her ex has resurfaced, along with lots of former “friends,” and someone is making mysterious threats. Then there’s Miles, who doesn’t ask for anything…except her trust. Pleasure is easy. Now Maxi has to give her heart as well as her body…or risk losing a man who could be everything she needs.



I received a copy via Net Galley and voluntarily left a review where all opinions are my own.

I have been a fan of Lori Foster’s since meeting her SBC fighters in the Ultimate series and have continued my love affair with them into the Body Armor series. I can definitely say that I am close to swooning when all these gorgeous fighters are in the same room together and Lori fulfills my wishes many times over with this sexy suspense that let’s us get a more intimate view of the former SBC fighter turned bodyguard Miles and his lady love Maxi. While it took me awhile to settle in to the story in Close Contact once I immersed myself with the mystery and intrigue surrounding this sexy couple, I couldn’t get enough!

Miles Dartman aka “The Legend” is a big man with an even bigger heart. He has had his sights set on Maxi for quite sometime, knows her body intimately, and has now given up that there will ever be anything more than chemistry between them. While he still carries a torch for her, he is not about to get close and get burned again. To bad she happens to be his newest client who he will be protecting in close quarters which leads to lots and lots of heat! I adored getting to know this former fighter better and see him finally get the woman he has been pining for.

When I briefly met Maxi Nevar in previous books, I took her for being a woman of wealth, no substance, and could never have a hair out of place. It wasn’t long into her story when I realized how wrong I was! I should have known that Miles wouldn’t be interested in a shallow woman, even if they are scorching together. I got to meet a completely different, more laid back, nature loving Maxi that is most definitely the perfect match for Miles. I began to admire and respect this cat loving, tenacious, independent woman more with each page.

Lori Foster delivers a romance full of suspense where we get to see the story through not only the hero and heroine’s point of view, but also the culprit’s! Lori had me turning the pages faster and faster trying to figure out who was reeking havoc in Maxi’s life and trying to stop her pursuit of happiness in the country while simultaneously bringing her and Miles together to fulfill their sexy destiny together. I cannot wait to step back into this fictional world and experience more steam, heart, and intrigue through the eyes of Brand and Sahara in their story Fast Burn…bring it on Lori, I am more than ready for more of these delicious fighters turned bodyguards!
