He’s tantalizing trouble she can’t resist…

Charlotte Parrish has always wanted a certain kind of man: someone responsible, settled, boring. Bad boys need not apply. But when her car leaves her stranded and a mysterious stranger with brooding eyes and a protective streak comes to her rescue, she can’t deny how drawn she is to him. In town searching for family he’s never met, Mitch is everything she never thought she wanted—and suddenly everything she craves.

Finding his half brothers after all these years is more than Mitch Crews has allowed himself to wish for. Finding love never even crossed his mind…until he meets Charlotte. She’s sweet, warmhearted, sexier than she knows—and too damn good for an ex-con like him. But when his past comes back to haunt him, putting Charlotte—and the family he’s come to care for—in danger, Mitch isn’t playing by the rules. He’s already surrendered his heart, but now he’ll risk his life.

review

[I received a copy for an honest review]

All Fired Up by Lori Foster is the third book in her Road to Love series. If you haven’t read the previous two, no worries, this one holds up well as a stand alone. Yet, I guarantee after you read it you will want to go read the other two brothers’ books.

Mitch has had a rough life growing up and recently out of prison and trying to put the past behind him. Part of moving on is introducing himself to his half brothers who don’t know he exists. When he finds them he also finds the woman they consider a sister, Charlotte Parish. She is beautiful, feisty and inexperienced when it comes to men, but she holds her own alongside the brothers. Mitch and his faithful dog Brute go from being alone in the world to surrounded by more family and support than he knows what to do with. Now he just has to make sure the ugly from his past doesn’t hurt his new family and his future with Charlotte.

You and me… we’re ment to happen.

Lori Foster knows how to create great characters. All the different personalities’ mange to work well and I never once found myself bored. Mitch is stand-offish and has his guard up but his new family chips away at his armor. Especially Charlotte who he has an instant connection with, she makes him feel peace. Their relationship is fast paced on even though they spend the first half of the book avoiding the sexual tension. When they come together it’s not just a physical connection but an emotional experience as well.

She was everything he’d craved and everything he hadn’t even known to want.

All Fired Up an enjoyable read and Mitch and Brute are probably my favorite man/dog pair up of the three brothers. I highly recommend this series for romance readers who like their stories with a side of lovable animals and a bit of suspense.
