    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...
  • 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...

    Received an ARC for an honest review. Another awesome book in the Body Armor series by Lori Foster. Loved reading about Miles and Maxi.
  • Lexxie (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.
  • Heather andrews
    Miles does not like other men sticking their noses in places or being around his woman, “I’d like coffee,” he interrupted. “And since it looks like we’ll need to head into town for it, we’ll let you get on your way.” There are times Miles has to keep his woman grounded, "Miles planted an arm around her to keep her from running off in a panic. “So we’ll order a pizza or something. Don’t sweat it.” I really liked this book, Mi...

    Get ready to be caught up in a messy, dangerous romance. Reversing the roles, the mess/danger are Maxi’s life. While Miles, being her bodyguard (former MMA) is set to protect her from danger. He brings not only order to her messy life but romance. Big, hunky, drop-dead gorgeous romance. Be prepared to stay up late not wanting to miss the other shoe (or other article of clothing) to drop.I was thoroughly engrossed and entertained. As always, I w...

    Miles Dartman was known as The Legend when he was in the MMA day, both for his skill fighting and for his skill in the bedroom. Although he was close to winning a championship, he had recently left fighting (reasons unknown) to become a bodyguard for the Body Armor agency; so far he has had two assignments.After Maxi’s grandmother and mother died within weeks of each other, she inherited her grandmother’s farm (with 30 cats) and a piece of pr...

    Close Contact by Lori Foster is the third book in the Body Armor series. If you have not read a book by Lori Foster than you are truly missing out. I haven't found one of her books that I can't finish in one setting! This series is based on former MMA fighters turning into bodyguards, whom work for the Body Armor agency. This is an intense romance in need of a second chance. Miles was left without so much as a word by Maxi and all of sudden she w...
  • Brandy Thornton
    I'm loving this series hard. This is the third book in the series and it could be read as a standalone but I recommend starting from the beginning to get the full effect. This book is a second chance romance. But that second chance pretty much only happens because Maxi is having problems that puts her safety at risk. And she is familiar and trusts Miles. Maxi has inherited her grandmothers farm which her siblings and a few others feel she should ...

    I was given an ARC (advanced reader's copy) of Close Contact for my honest opinion & that's what you're going to get! 😉I'm not going to lie: it's not hard to love a Lori Foster book. She's in my top three; and, this book didn't let me down either. Miles is both mad and hurt. The first woman he meets that he is genuinely interested in and she uses him like a tissue and tosses him aside. Butt-hurt? No. Surprisingly angry that she got away and hu...
  • Carma
    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...
  • Marybeth
    I received an ARC of this book from Netgalley in August in exchange for my honest review.I really like this super hot series! Miles is a super sexy former MMA fighter working for Body Armor and is assigned to protect Maxi when she comes to them looking for help. They are not strangers, no, in fact they had a fling and she disappeared without a word. Now Miles looks at this as a chance to find out why. The story line is just awesome, as Ms. Foster...

    Lori Foster continues her series about MMA fighters-turned-bodyguards. This book involves Miles Dartman, AKA Legend, who has had to retire from fighting. He’s told to protect Maxi Nevar, who turns out to be the one woman he can’t forget. They had three nights of memorable sex and then she just walked out without a word.Now she’s back and she needs a bodyguard to protect her from the weird sort of stalking threats she’s been experiencing a...
  • Book Addict
    This is a great book and a must read. It was also nice to see some of the characters from previous books and series. I love all the alpha males that Lori Foster writes about in her books. This book is about Miles and Maxi. Miles and Maxi have had a previous steamy, sexy encounter. The chemistry between these two is off the charts and now she is in danger and needs his protection. The mystery is who is causing all the trouble for Maxi. This story ...

  • Jennifer Patil
    What can I say, I am a sucker for absolutely every single one of Lori's MMA fighters and detectives. I love the way the stories weave and connect to each other so that we really get an idea of who these characters are, we sympathize with their struggles, and celebrate their love and friendship. My favorite love story so far has been Armie and Rissy, but I believe my second has to be Miles and Maxi. The mystery and suspense of Close Contact had me...
  • Princess Thuy
    Lori Foster sure knows how to hook you in right from the beginning and not let go until the very end. What a great suspenseful romance. Not too scary suspenseful but still got a good mystery going on to see who the villain was. I had a hunch but I was kept being thrown off. So many possible suspects and it was great trying to guess "who dunnit." Now on to the romance part. *Great big sigh* Miles and Maxi were HOT! Their chemistry was off the char...
  • Christiana Lawson-Bloom
    I received a ARC copy in exchange for an honest review. Lori Foster just keeps getting better and better! i received this book yesterday, i couldn't put it down. Miles Dartman, OOoooo Weeee. i think i'm in love :) Maxi was a good strong female character, with Miles and her Cats she's pretty awesome. I never like to leave spoilers, so ill keep it short and sweet. If you want a book that makes your heart sing (and maybe something else too) this is ...
  • Terri
    I think this is my favorite of The Body Armor series, so far. That is until the next one, lol. The chemistry between Miles and Maxi was hot. But, I, also enjoyed their connection in other aspects of their relationship. Miles was understandably upset when Maxi left with no explanation, even though he was used to having no commitment hook ups. Maxi felt that she had her reasons for having a no commitment hook up with Miles that couldn’t go any fu...

    Headline: I have voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC version of Close Contact by Lori Foster.*squeal!!!!!!Lori Foster never fails to write an amazing book that can pull me out of a funk and make me smile. I absolutely loved this book, though I expected nothing less. I liked Miles in the Ultimate series but he was so damn easy to fall in love with here. Maxi and her cats were next in line. Pretty sure I squealed my head off when the guys from the...
  • Jennifer Muraski
    I received an ARC for an honest review. I love that Lori Foster has given us the Body Armor series because I love seeing my favorite MMA fighters who are single get their HEA. I loved Maxie because she was so independent but also sweet. Then there is sexy, strong, sweet Miles. Maxie and Miles were a great pairing. The dialogue was so good. I loved the humor and found myself laughing quite a lot. I loved the suspense element because it wasn't over...
  • Diane Dudzik
    Once again, Lori Foster has a knockout! Book #3 of The Body Armor series has us learning about the newest addition from the MMA world, Miles. Miles "The Legend" Dartman was a successful MMA fighter who is friends with the heroes of the Ultimate Series as well as Books #1 and #2 of the Body Armor series. Unfortunately, he had to give up his dream of a championship and followed Leese (#1) and Justice (#2) footsteps. He is enjoying his new career as...
  • Shelly
    Miles and Maxi had a sexy, no-strings attached affair and each had been happy with that, although Miles wanted more he didn't push Maxi. Miles is done fighting, not by choice but due to circumstance and now he has is a bodyguard and can't believe Maxi is looking for someone to help her and ends up at the agency he works at.Another hit, this is book 3 in a series, although this is the first book in this series I have read, I will definately be goi...
