Close Contact, by Lori Foster

A Body Armor Novel

Since Maxi Never inherited her grandmother’s farmhouse–as well as her numerous cats–unusual things have been happening there. At first, strange sounds and items moved. The last straw was waking up outside, a distance away from her house.

The mystery of that is why she hires Body Armor Security, namely Miles Dartman. The two had met before, briefly, but she left the encounter without giving Miles even her last name. So it is no wonder it’s a shock to find her in his office needing his help. On edge, uncomfortable being alone, the former MMA fighter moves into her home to provide 24/7 protection.

The first part of the book has the two dancing around each other, unsure if they trust enough to open up. Both still drawn to the other, the sexual tension builds at the same time the danger increases. Someone wishes Maxi harm, but how far will they go? As the tricks become attacks, Miles finds this assignment far more than a job. Suspects are plentiful, including her angry family.

The novel is well written and very entertaining. Likable characters, including other members of the Body Armor Security team make appearances as well. If you follow the series, you’ll learn still more about them. It does contain explicit sex as you find in many contemporary romance novels today.

Close Contact is part of the Body Armor series featuring strong alpha males who have left MMA to join the security company of the same name.

Lori Foster is the author of more than eighty novels. While her novels may lean toward romance, many of her stories are romantic suspense like this one. I hope to see her continue to include even more intrigue in coming novels. As with this one, it adds another level to the romance.

If you enjoy romantic suspense, give this one a try. The bestselling author doesn’t disappoint.
