About HARD JUSTICE:

Playing it safe has never felt so dangerous…

Justice Wallington knows how to harness his strength and intimidating size—skills he put to good use first in the MMA cage, and now as a bodyguard at the Body Armor agency. But no opponent has ever left him feeling as off balance as his new client, heiress Fallon Wade. Far from a spoiled princess, she’s sweet and intriguingly innocent. It’s a risk-free assignment, until he’s required to fake a relationship with her in order to blend in.

Sheltered from the world after a family tragedy, Fallon longs to experience life—going to bars, dancing, talking to strangers. Not easy with a huge, lethal-looking bodyguard shadowing her every move. Justice seems like her polar opposite, but pretending to be a couple stirs undeniable heat. And when danger strikes again, it’s not just her safety in jeopardy, but a passion that’s real, raw and absolutely against the rules…

Reese's Review:
Holy hot pants Batman Hard Justice was a-freaking-mazing! If this book could have even possibly been better I would have never gotten out of a book hangover. Seriously amazing. 

Fallon Wade has been through a lot, but at the same time she hasn’t. She’s never had a beer or been dancing. Her whole life she’s been sheltered and protected by her family. Now that her family is firing a personal bodyguard for her, everything is about to change. She’ll be safe to explore the world the way she was never able to do. Then she meets Justice Wallington and she knows her world is about to change in more ways than one. Now she gets to explore more than just the world but Justice too.

Justice Wallington is an ex-fighter turned bodyguard. When he gets to new assignment to be a babysitter to an heiress he thinks this case is pretty straightforward. Except things are becoming super complicated for him now that he’s met Fallon. She’s not spoiled or snotty and she understands him. When Fallon’s life gets threatened Justice will do any and everything to keep her safe.

Okay first off this story was amazing. I seriously am hitting myself over the head for not reading Lori Foster’s books earlier. I like them a lot. 

Justice and Fallon start off as bodyguard and client. Very quickly they become friends, and then more than that. I like that the two of them actually date and it’s not just about sex. In the previous book(s) I’ve read by Lori Foster, she did an excellent job of making sure the characters had relationships that were realistic and not too quick. Now that’s not to say there were some very sexy hot scenes in here, because seriously, there were, but that wasn’t the entire focus of the book. That being said bring a fan with you when you’re reading. 

Justice is a super great character. I liked that he grew throughout the story to find what he loved about not being a fighter anymore. He had depth beyond fighting and being a sexy hero. He loves his family and that plays out in the book. He’s super protective, and strong, but also smart. I like that his friends were in this story and weren’t just some play boys while Justice was the first to settle down. His story felt real and had multiple layers like a real person would.

Fallon’s story was a little more of a mystery. I think Lori Foster did a great job of laying down clues as to what was going on with her, but she let me think on it for a little bit instead of giving it away immediately. I really enjoyed Fallon’s character. She was sweet and naive without being dumb or completely out of touch with how the world truly is. I loved how she grew throughout the story and that she had a strong will to do anything she set her mind to.

Seriously loved this book. Multiple POV switching mostly between Justice and Fallon and sometimes you get two other characters, but it’s supposed to add to the story so it’s not distracting. The characters were amazing and had depth. The sexy scenes were steamy, and the romance was adorable. Lori Foster’s writing is beyond amazing and I am seriously adding all of her books to my MUST-READ list ASAP.


EXCERPT:
It took Fallon a few seconds more to get her feet moving, then she darted to the closet with new excitement. Shoot, even having a bodyguard would be an adventure when the bodyguard looked like him.
She stepped into her flat-heeled shoes, found a cardigan to pull on over her top and chose a scarf to drape around her neck. She didn’t particularly like the outfit, but no way would she make him wait while she went through her wardrobe.
After one last fluff of her brown hair and a quick swipe of gloss over her lips, Fallon squared her shoulders, filled her lungs with a fortifying breath for courage and ventured forth.
The second she stepped out, she heard his deep voice and paused to listen.
“No need to worry. I’ll cover her.”
Her father choked, turned it into a cough, and said with authority, “She is not to be alone. Not for a single second.”
“Promise I’ll stick real close.”
Alarmed, her father corrected, “But not too close.”
“Just close enough, then.”
“No one is to get too cozy with her either.”
“No cozy shenanigans,” he said. “Got it.”
“She’s naive and doesn’t understand that thugs—” here her father paused for effect, his narrowed gaze on the man “—might try to use her to get to her wealth.”
“Yeah? That’s happened before?”

“Well…no.” Her father harrumphed in that familiar way that showed his annoyance. “But it’s a very real concern.”
