  • Natalie The Biblioholic
    After finishing this book, I wish I had read the two that preceded it. I really enjoyed the premise of former MMA fighters turning into high-end security. I couldn’t get the description of Miles’ build out of my mind. I had a lot of imaginary perv action going on ;) Miles and Maxi shared insane chemistry. After doing the deed three times, however, Maxi up and disappeared. This had the potential to wreck Miles as he was already let down by the...

    While I loved this book, I didn't love it quite as much as books 1 & 2 in the series. It's still 4.5 stars for me. I love the idea of former MMA fighters turned bodyguards, and this series is so sexy and fun. Miles Dartman, The Legend as he was known in his MMA days, is a former fighter, who had to give up his championship hopes, for reasons he's not willing to discuss with most people. 2 of his best friends, also former fighters, have become bod...

    I love all the Body Armor serie books but this one is my favorite. Maxi and Miles had chemistry that was off the charts also, there banter between each other was great. Can't wait for the next book in the series.ARC provided by Netgalley for an honest review.

    Advanced Reader Copy (ARC) provided by the Author and Publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an fair and honest review.Great sexy romance, wonderful mystery plot and a touch of humor make this a good book. I really like the hot romance and mystery, but the angst and martyr and repetitiousness just kinda killed the buzz of a great romantic-suspense lite plot. Miles and Maxi have had a steamy, sexy, no-strings attached affair and each has been hap...
  • Lexxie (un)Conventional Bookviews
    This review was originally posted on (un)Conventional Bookviews Close contact was a romance with a lot of danger, but there was humor and friendship as well. The hotness between Maxi and Miles was off the charts. Story: Maxi thought she was done with Miles, especially when she moved to her late grandmother's house in the countryside. Close Contact soon showed me that Maxi needed more than just physical backup, though. When she woke up outside in ...

    We all remember Miles! He's one of the fighters from the last series. And now he's new to Sahara's bodyguard agency. (Sahara will get her own book next!!!)Two months ago Miles had three amazing nights with bar hook-up Maxi. He wanted more - he was completely infatuated. But she never called again. She just vanished. He might be a bit mad at her now.That's why he's a bit confused to find her sitting in his boss's office - about to hire him for his...
  • Amy ~ Love At 1st Read
    Lori Foster serves up the ultimate mix of passion and danger in her newest addition to her Body Armor series. A real nail biter that kept me guessing until the end. Miles and Maxi had me riveted. Not to mention I got to meet up with a few of my faves from Foster's Ultimate Series. And she gave me just enough of a tease into Sahara's story that I'm already anxious for the next book in this series. If you're a fan of steaming romance and engrossing...

    I don’t know about you but my brain hates when I read books, I know are in a series, out of order. The great thing about Lori Foster books is you can do that with most of the connected books, and not be totally lost in the process. Now my brain still hates it thoroughly but it isn’t as bad. Close Contact is the 3rd book in the Body Armor series. I have both Under Pressure (Leese’s story) and Hard Justice (Justice’s story) on my waiting to...
  • Catherine (The Sassy Bookster)
    Maxi Nevar's life got complicated and chaotic real fast with the loss of her mother and grandmother close together, the discovery that her fiance was cheating and the pressure from her siblings. The quickest way to relive the  stress for her was to get laid, but the planned one-night stand became more than that as she found herself blown away by what she shared with Miles Dartman. But she did not stick around to find out what could come out of ...

OK, if you insist!I have enjoyed the first 2 books in this series, and now we have Miles - and humina humina, me likey!From the minute Miles and his former fling Maxi reconnect, sparks fly.

  • Shannon
    4.5*I really enjoyed the first 2 books in the Body Armor series- they're exciting, suspenseful, full of twists and turns, not to mention downright sexy. And Close Contact, the third book, is all that and more. Reminiscent of the books in the Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor series, Close Contact might just be my favorite of the three so far. I love the mystery of this one, and that it's a bit of a second-chance romance. The little history Miles and...
  • Cheri
    Lo ved this one! Can't wait to read the next with Sahara..
  • Suzi (Obsessive Reading Disorder)
    4.5 starsLOVE this series! This one is about Miles. Sahara just keeps racking up those former MMA guys on her security team and it makes for some very hawt interactions. Miles has retired from fighting due to multiple injuries. Miles and Maxi have a history. I appreciated that he quickly got over the hurt of her not returning his calls and switched to trying to protect her. Life is too short after all. Great mystery--I had my guesses but interest...
  • Belinda
    I wish you could give this book more than 5 stars..LOVE Lori Foster's books and this was no exception..the heat and passion between Maxi and Miles is undeniable. They are hot for each other..But Maxi had run from Miles and he was hurt but when she comes to Body Armor to hire him to help her find out he drugged her and is doing things are her place they are in close contact all the time. He does his best to watch over and to make it so no one can ...
  • Shari G
    Miles, like the other MMA turned Body Armor bodyguard, is a panty-melting, sinfully sexy, true alpha hero. (LOVING this series if you can’t tell lol.) He’s enjoying his new, somewhat mundane job even though he misses the MMA he left behind for reasons he hasn’t shared with anyone. That’s when Maxi walks in and mundane walks out. Maxi recently inherited a farm from her grandmother. As outdated as it is, she loves it. And the multitude of s...
  • bjneary
    I love Lori Foster books and Close Contact was super enjoyable! Miles and Maxi were strong characters, sincere, and totally into each other but only the reader is aware how much they really care about each other because they certainly aren't speaking freely to each 0ther. I loved the pace, could not stop reading this book as the heat rose, the danger increased, and the Body Armor family takes Maxi under their wing. I think that is what I like mos...
  • Michele
    Actual Rating: 4.5 StarsSee the full review at HarlequinJunkie.comCarefully crafted to leave readers guessing who was out to get our brave heroine Maxi, Close Contact was a suspenseful romance that had me absolutely captivated. And what made it even better was the super steamy partnership between Maxi and her bodyguard, former MMA fighter Miles. Hot. Stuff. *fans face*As a fan of Lori Foster’s work, I already knew I’d enjoy this book when I s...

    The third book in the Body Armor series centers around Miles Dartman the “Legend,” former MMA fighter now new operator for Sahara Silver and her elite group. Maxi Nevar was a one night stand, that actually turned into three and then was gone. Miles thought they had something more, but obviously not. Suddenly Maxi appears at the Body Armor office, shaken, terrified and desperate for help. As much as Miles wants to turn his back on her, his con...
  • Laura
    ***ARC Provided by the Author via NetGalley***3.5 Stars Miles and Maxi were interesting. I liked the idea that they were a previous "series of one night stands" and that there was an attraction and a reluctant trust (at least reluctant on her part) between them.I thought this was an interesting place to start a story, with a potential stalker and a need of a bodyguard, and already knowing and trusting the person you are hiring.There was a bit of ...
  • Julie
    Foster delivers another great contemporary with her sexy MMA fighter series! Miles and Maxi’s story was a scrumptious delight of sexy attraction and second chances! I loved Miles’s thoughtful nature and got a kick out of Maxi’s stubbornness. I also loved the mystery twist! It provided a a nice thread of suspense that had me trying to guess who the bad guy was until the end! I am also highly anticipating Sahara and Brand’s story next! Talk...

    This is the 3rd book in Lori Foster's Body Armor series. This book focuses on Miles Dartman and his lady friend Maxi Nevar, though they had been more of acquaintances than friends. Miles left the MMA fighting circle & has joined Leese Phelps & Justice Wallington at Sahara Silver's Body Armor Agency.Maxi works as a personal shopper & has had family difficulties. She is also dealing with the aftermath of a break up due to cheating. She is dealing w...

    After being in a rut with a heavy disappointing read I knew this book would pull me out of a slump. This author never fails to entertain me.Former MMA fighters are recruited to a bodyguard company. Miles has an intimate past with his client so will he get a second chance?There's a lot going on at her ranch, is it in her head or is she in danger? I thought I had it worked out then the author threw in a bunch of red herrings to keep me guessing.The...
  • Sharon
    This book was amazing! Lori Foster wrote a great story that kept you guessing who was causing all the chaos for Maxi, and she has to resort to hiring a body guard, none other than the guy she fell for but ran.Miles can't believe Maxi is here in front of him, she left him after 3 dates and disappeared, and now here she is in need of his help. Follow their story, be prepared to sit on the edge of your seat and also swoon and fall in love! 5 stars f...

    Received an ARC for an honest review. Another awesome book in the Body Armor series by Lori Foster. Loved reading about Miles and Maxi.
  • Shanna
    Lori Foster has done it again! This is such a great series (ok I know I say that about all her series) but there is just something about the way Lori Foster writes a character and all their stories. I have to say that I knew the least about Miles and Brand from the Ultimate series, so I really wasn't sure what to expect. But I knew that I was in for a serious ride and one that would be unforgettable. I think more than anything else I enjoyed how ...
  • Cheryl
    I have not read the first two books in this series. Yet, this book can be read as a stand alone novel. I like the idea of the Body Armor agency employing "sexy" men as bodyguards. As owner, Sahara says "Body Armor is the place to go for sexier protection". Maxi is my type of woman...strong. I love a good, strong, female lead. There can never be enough in my opinion. It was especially welcome in this male driven story. Although, I am not complaini...

When he arrives in her office he is shocked and dismayed to see Maxi Nevar, a woman he had a connection with, but who dumped him with nary a word.
