Book Series Sunday...

The SBC Fighters Series by Lori Foster

Book #1 : Causing Havoc
Sexy, sculpted extreme fighter Dean "Havoc" Connor has knee-melting good looks-and thick skin. But not from his brutal sport's enclosed rings. Orphaned and torn from his sisters as a boy, he has no family. That is, until he gets a letter revealing how much the once-little girls want him back in Harmony, Kentucky.
To stop his sister from marrying a man as sleazy as he is wealthy, Dean finds himself teaming up with her pretty-but-smart-mouthed friend Eve — who's heard of "Havoc's" reputation and doesn't need some hunk trampling on her heart. Now all Dean has to do is protect his sisters, win Eve over, and expose a devious criminal.  And he thought winning the heavyweight cage fighting belt was hard.

Book #2: Simon Says
Sexy ex-fighter Simon Evans has the perfect life-until he catches his girlfriend cheating. To work off his rage, he goes back into the ring full-force. But a gutsy and gorgeous P.I. is about to send him reeling with a secret about his family and one about her heart.

Book #3: Hard To Handle
After Fate deals Supreme Battle Challenge (SBC) fighter Harley Handleman a sucker punch, his uncle secretly hires a pretty lifecoach to get Harley back in the ring of life. Anastasia Kelley has actually known Harley for years, but never as well as she's going to now. Hot for his fighter's form, she has trouble keeping it professional, especially since Harley doesn't know she was hired. And when Anastasia turns the tables on him, it's as if he's been hit below the belt. But that's also where is uncontrollable lust for her burns.

Book #4: My Man Michael
On the verge of a title shot match, fighter Michael "“Mallet"” Manchester is injured in a car accident. And just as quickly as his career was taking off, it’s over. Then Kaylie Raine appears, offering him a second chance at becoming whole. Even though Mallet thinks it’s the pain medication talking, he accepts her challenge. And on an extraordinary journey with Kaylie, he’ll get a chance to fight again—to save the woman who has saved him.

Book #5: Back In Black
Gillian is a PR expert hired to smooth out the rough edges on hotheaded sports club president Drew Black. He's rough, raw, and ready for any challenge Gillian throws his way. But which one's going to end up on top?

I LOVE this series by Lori Foster.  It has everything that I look for in a book...Sexy Alpha Heroes, Feisty-Smart-Funny Heroines, Lovable Cast of Secondary Characters, and HOT Sex Scenes!! ;)  I love the friendship and joking between the characters. The stories pull you in from the start and keep you entertained and involved until the end.   
The only negative that I have is about My Man Michael. The book is good but it's more paranormal.  I had waited for this book and was disappointed that she had taken that direction since the other stories were not like that at all.  Although I did like the story after reading it, I still wish she would have written it without the paranormal aspects and kept it like the other books in the series. 
SBC Fighter Series is one that I continue to reach for again and again (even My Man Michael). :)


  1. Happy Sunday Mariann,
    Love Lori Foster! Well said about this series. My thoughts exactly. My Man Michael was my first read by Lori Foster. Fell in love with it and her. But My fave is Simon Says.

    1. LOL... I knew I liked you for a reason!! I LOVE all those books but my favorite is Simon and Dakota, LOVE them!! Have you ever read her series about the brothers?? Sawyer, Morgan, Gabe, Jordan, and Casey?? That is another of my favorites from her.
      Nice to talk with you again!!

    2. Love, Love Love the Buckhorn Brothers. Gabe is my Fav. I also love the Winston Brothers. Have you read them yet?

    3. No, I haven't read the Winston brothers. I will have to put them in my TBR pile!! I love Gabe especially in Casey's book when he has his little girls!! But I have to say that Morgan is my favorite!! Have you read any of these: Pamela Clare's I-team series, Nora Robert's Chesapeake Bay series, Robyn Carr's Virgin River series, Lauren Dane's Chase Brothers series and her Browns Siblings series???

  2. I have read Pamela's Unlawful act a while back, liked it. Going to re-read as I want to start from the beginning of the series. Have Extreme Exposure and Hard Evidence on my TBR list. I have not read Nora Robert's Chesapeake Bay series or Robyn Carr's Virgin River series. I was not sure if they were steamy enough for me. I like my brotherhood books to be steamy to erotic and have them Alpha Male. I am reading now Lauren Dane's Coming Undone and loving it so far. Have you read R.L. Mathewson A Neighbor From Hell Series? Love this series. The first one is Playing For Keeps and the Second is Perfection. It is about a whole family even with cousins. They are pricey in paperback but cheap in e-reader.

    1. I love Pamela's I-Team series!!! Nora Roberts Chesapeake Bay series is like Lori Foster's Buckhorn Brothers series-sooo good(and I don't usually like Nora's books-but that is a favorite of mine!!) Virgin River series has some steamy aspects to it and they are just really great stories-you should put them in your TBR pile for later-I don't think you would be disappointed. I have mad LOVE for Lauren Dane -- the Brown siblings and Chase Brothers are such great books!! LOVE LOVE Brody!! Oh, another author your should check out is Sophie Oak - Sexy Hot Alphas!! I had never heard of R L Mathewson -- I am going to check it out!! Thanks.

  3. Thank you. I have added to my TBR list. We have same taste so I will give them a try.

    1. Hey, How r u ?? Is your blog still working ok??
