Overview

He can protect anything except his heart

Leese Phelps's road hasn't been an easy one, but it's brought him to the perfect job—working for the elite Body Armor security agency. And what his newest assignment lacks in size, she makes up for in fire and backbone. But being drawn to Catalina Nicholson is a dangerous complication, especially since it could be the very man who hired Leese who's threatening her.

What Catalina knows could get her killed. But who'd believe the sordid truth about her powerful stepfather? Beyond Leese's ripped body and brooding gaze is a man of impeccable honor. He's the last person she expects to trust—and the first who's ever made her feel safe. And he's the only one who can help her expose a deadly secret, if they can just stay alive long enough…

Leese meets his new charge under less than perfect circumstances. He can see why she needs protection. He just wants her to trust he will keep her safe. Even when it gets ugly. Catalina has been surviving on her own, and does not feel she needs help. Those that are after her are beyond reach, so what is the point. Now, some hot time, that she could use. There is more to this than just security. This book was an excellent start to a new series! I loved the characters. How strong the female lead is, how sassy. She knows what she wants. I am surprised the pages did not melt. The book is HOT! This author always gives us her best. I cannot wait to read the next book in the Body Armor series.

4.5 stars I have been waiting forever for Leese's story and I am so glad I finally got to read it! Lori Foster is right at the top of my favorite author list. She knows how to write characters that are real enough they seem to leap off the pages. Leese started out in another of Lori's series and at first it seemed like he wasn't going to be a very nice guy. But being the master that she is, Lori made Leese the best of men. Finding that MMA didn't quite suit him, Leese moved onto personal security. I would have liked a little more information about just how he ended up at the Body Armore Agency. Under Pressure is full of twists and turns and there's loads of information that keeps the reader completely engaged. I love Cat and her outspoken ways. She kept Leese on his toes and kept me highly entertained. I also enjoyed Leese's sense of humor and his easy, gentle way with Catalina. We also get a small visit with the guys from the Ultimate series, Cannon, Armie, and Stack along with a couple more. Justice made me giggle more than once. I also love that Lori rarely kills off anyone. And if a character does die, he or she always deserves it. Under Pressure is a great beginning to a series that's sure to be Amazing. I received a copy of this book in exchange for a review.

Wowzer!! What a fantastic start to this series. This book captured my interest from the very beginning. It is intriguing and kept me wondering what was going to happen. I couldn't put it down. The plot is unique and only something Lori could come up with. I love that about her books, they aren't the typical romance stories. I've liked Leese since he was introduced in the Ultimate Series and have loved watching his transformation. I loved Cat's strength and independence, even in the face of danger. When these two meet, you feel the instant attraction, but more so the connection. The chemistry is off the charts between Leese and Cat, you can feel the sparks flying. This book is hot, sexy, witty and action packed. And I absolutely loved having the characters from the Ultimate Series make appearances. I'm excited for this series!! I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

*Big huge happy sigh* What a great beginning to a new spin off series from the Ultimate Series. I have been dying for Leese's story since he first appeared in Holding Strong as a cocky and not so nice guy who learned from his mistakes and tried to be a better man. I've watched him grow in Tough Love and Fighting Dirty and now he's turned into a wonderful hero with his own love story. (Note that you don't need to read the other books before you read Under Pressure because this is a stand alone and you won't really miss anything about Leese from his appearance in the other series, but if you're obsessed like me and would like to see how he was in the past, totally go back and read the other series later.) Now back to Leese and Catalina. I absolutely loved them both. She was so adorable and funny. She was strong and always spoke her mind. She found herself in a very scary situation but she didn't allow it to change who she was. Loved that. Leese was hot, sexy and determined to keep her safe no matter what and the chemistry between the two of them was off the charts. This story was action packed, filled with despicable villains, and wonderful secondary characters I'd love to see more of in the future. It was just so amazing that I finished it the first time around so quickly that I had to go back and reread it slower because I didn't want to leave their world so soon. Now I must wait impatiently for book 2 but I guess I'm one of the lucky ones able to read this book before it was released so I shouldn't complain too much about the wait. * I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader copy of this book *
