He's the hottest MMA fighter in the game, but one woman is ready to try out a few steamy moves of her own in an unforgettable new novel from New York Times bestselling author Lori Foster
With the life he's led and the muscles he's gained, Armie Jacobson isn't afraid of anything. Except maybe Merissa Colter's effect on him. It's not just that she's his best friend's little sister. Fact is, she deserves better. Women pursue him for one night of pleasure, and that's all he wants to offer. Until rescuing Merissa from a robbery leads to the most erotic encounter of his life.
Good girl meets bad boy. It's a story that rarely ends well. But Merissa is taking matters into her own hands. No matter how he views himself, the Armie she knows is brave, honorable and completely loyal. And as past demons and present-day danger collide, they're both about to learn what's truly worth fighting for…
Fighting Dirty is your typical bad boy/good girl trope. Armie thinks he isn’t good enough for Merissa and pushes her away. Merissa finds herself in danger and Armie steps up to help save her. Its not very original but Lori Foster is a great writer. Even when I thought to myself “I have read this before” I kept turning the page because Lori’s writing was great! And Armie was a major man whore. Thats another trope I am kind of over. I mean, he wasn’t just sleeping with different girls every night, he was having group sex with girls every night. Its like being a man whore isn’t enough any more, authors try to make them a disgusting man whore. Its really becoming so annoying! However, if you like Lori’s writing and don’t mind these tropes, this is a solid book!

Merissa loved her brother. She’d always seen him as Superman, larger than life, a rock whenever she’d needed one. He was only a couple of years older than her, but for as long as she could remember he’d seemed grown-up.Right now, Superman was in her kitchen, insisting on getting her a drink when all she really wanted was the time alone to let go. She knew if she fell apart in front of him, Cannon would never leave her.He didn’t need to be a savior, not right now.
