Feb 23, Susan rated it it was amazing Shelves: Fireman Ethan Winters ran headlong into a burning building to find Rosie Carrington.
For Rosie, the heat in Ethan’s eyes was enough to start a three-alarm blaze! Good story, novella length, only pages, but there was a lot packed into those pages. I loved both Rosie and Ethan. Ethan and Rosie had known each other for a long time and had been friends forever. They had stayed friends even when her brother ran off with Ethan’s fiancee. Rosie was tired of watching Ethan waste his time with Trapped! Rosie was tired of watching Ethan waste his time with one night stands since then.
She had been in love with him for years and finally decided to do something about it. Meanwhile, Ethan suddenly started noticing her as something more than a friend but didn’t want to risk their friendship by making advances to her.
I loved her interactions with the guys. She was honest and uncomplicated and had no trouble lighting into them. I loved the way she kept Ethan off balance with her comments and actions. When Ethan finally realized that he wanted Rosie he didn’t waste any time going after her. He had some issues to deal with from his jilting but Rosie did a great job of helping him with those.
I really enjoyed the way that he was so modest about his hero status, but it was so obvious that he was exactly that. The ending of the story was great with the way he surprised Rosie. This story was also an introduction to Regina and Riley and the background of their story. So Regina gets a guard dog — make that a four-pound “guard” Chihuahua!
All Riled Up by Lori Foster
But defending herself is not on her mind when sexy instructor Riley Moore has her pinned to the mat. He wants her, but first he has to protect her. She needs more than her “don’t-muss-my-hair” style fostdr defense and that ridiculous so-called dog. Riley is ex-SWAT — and his new life as an evidence tech hasn’t softened his lethal training one bit. But Regina isn’t quite the princess eiled seems, and she’s about to catch him off guard!
Regina doesn’t know why she is being attacked. She has tried the police but they don’t take her seriously so she goes to Riley at his gym for lessons in self defense. He also wants to get a lot closer to her. I loved Regina and Riley. Because of a chaotic childhood she is now very precise and proper. Being around Riley seriously messes with her calm but she knows she needs him. In spite of her fears I really liked her strength of will. She wasn’t going to let anything stop her from doing her job.
I also loved the way that she seemed to really understand Riley. She also had some confidence issues from having a crappy ex-fiance. It didn’t take too long to overcome those when Loi really turned his charm on her. I loved her little “guard” dog and the way she picked him out at the shelter. The dog played several key roles in the story.
He was definitely a big, tough macho kind of guy with some really awesome skills. I really liked the way that he actually listened to Regina’s concerns and took them seriously. I loved watching him struggle with his attraction for Regina as he tried to fodter the right thing first before he gave in.
All Riled Up (Men of Courage, #) by Lori Foster
He had some issues in his past that he was really struggling with and I really liked seeing the way he was able to open p with Regina about them. His protectiveness towards her was sweet and I loved his confrontation with her ex. I really liked the way he was so good with the dog once he stopped laughing at it.
He had some great scenes with it. He had great interactions with his friends and his dealing with their teasing about Regina was wonderful. Loved the final confrontation scene and the slight twist it had. I definitely want to read about the other two guys.
I’m a bit new to Lori Foster, so I’m glad that her back list is slowly being re-published. I loved the first story more than the second, but that’s because it involved a firefighter. And well, we all know I’m a sucker for a good HEA story with a firefighter.
Awesome friends to lover story in the first novella with some suspense and action that lead seamlessly into the second story of two people who fall in love while trying to move on from their pasts and figure out a mystery in the present toge I’m a bit new to Lori Foster, so I’m glad that her back list is slowly being re-published.
Awesome friends to lover story in the first novella with some suspense and action that lead seamlessly into the second story of two people who fall in love while trying to move on from their pasts and figure out a mystery in the present together. Even though these were novellas in a previously released anthology, I like that you felt you were reading a whole book.
Everything was tied up neatly at the end. Feb 28, starsaga rated it really liked it Shelves: The first story about Rosie and Ethan was short and sweet, I had questions about this book being part of a series, because the beginning seemed like I should already know more about these characters than I did.
The second story was adorable, with Butch the guard Chihuahua, he made the story sweet and the humans more interesting. I liked that Riley was super-possessive and although the story was not long, I believe they will be happy.
With the dog of course. So with a gentle sense of humour a Cute. So with a gentle sense of humour and some decent smexing, this second story diled a good read. View all 4 comments. Jan 07, Cherie rated it did not like it Shelves: I usually like Lori Foster a lot.
I haven’t read one of her books in a while, so I thought I would pick this up as a quick read This story is probably the first by Lori Foster that I didn’t like. In fact, I disliked it so much that I didn’t finish the first story and didn’t even start the second story.
The story felt slapped together, as though minimal effort was made to weave it together in to a smooth, seamless telling.
All Riled Up: Trapped!\Riley
I didn’t get the sense of any connection between Ethan and Rosie. I get I usually like Lori Foster a lot.
I get that they have a past, but they didn’t have chemistry. Then there’s how Ethan is fighting his feelings for Rosie, until suddenly and inexplicably he’s not. One page he’s telling his friends and himself that she is only a friend, the next page he’s telling her he wants her.
From there things move at warp speed, and not just because I was flipping pages, skipping the love scene and trite dialogue.
Overall the story lacked finesse, so the characters came of as clumsy relationship wise. I didn’t read Riley and Regina’s story I couldn’t bring myself to turn another page in this book.
I will say that though I did not like this story, Ms.
