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, its over. Then Kaylie Raine appears, offering him a second chance at becoming whole. Even though Mallet thinks its the pain medication talking, he accepts her challenge. And on an extraordinary journey with Kaylie, hell get a chance to fight againto 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?
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). :)
