Review: Under Pressure by Lori Foster

UNDER PRESSURE - banner

3.5 Stars. I’ve been a Lori Foster fans for a long time. She has a unique way of putting together a story that infuses all of the elements of a romance, with action and suspense and the result is very interesting. Her characters are flawed but their hearts are always so big. They stand up for what’s right even when the path is treacherous. Leese and Catalina are no exception to the winning formula.

Catalina is in trouble and Leese is sent to protect her. He takes his role seriously and, at first, fights their attraction. I want to say that I felt the chemistry but to be frank, I didn’t feel it as much as I have with other characters of Ms. Foster. Their intimacy was still hot, don’t get me wrong, but I just wasn’t feeling the connection to the characters on the level that I’ve found myself engaged in the past. The action was conveyed in a manner that allowed me to form my own imagery of the scenes. The writing was superb, as always. The plot progressed well with perfect timing and transitions. I loved the setup for additional stories/couples and will definitely continue the series. Safety: No others for either, though Catalina flirts with a guy to get some essentials while she’s on the run. No rape or abuse.

ARC received in exchange for an honest review.

UNDER PRESSURE Synopsis:

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…
