Vanity Baker loves a good, clean match, but she's not above playing a little dirty. She's wanted Stack "The Wolf" Hannigan from day one. Seems as though the best way to corral the famously commitment-phobic fighter is to insist on keeping it casual. And her plan works—deliciously well—until Stack's past steps out of the shadows.
Stack learned early to stay free of attachments. But with sexy, forthright Vanity, he's the one always left wanting more. Then his troublemaking family comes back into the picture, threatening everything Stack cares about—Vanity included. Suddenly he realizes they're much more than friends with benefits. He's ready to go to the mat for her…but will it be in time to protect the woman who's tamed him for good?
ReviewThe story of Stack and Vanity was set up perfectly at the end of Holding Strong, Ultimate Fighter Book #2. You can read my review for book two here.
Fighter, Stack is known as a ladies man and Vanity is gorgeous, rich and humble. She thinks she's found the perfect way into the fighter's bed but she may also have found a way into his heart without even trying.
I absolutely loved the lead up and the easy transition this couple experienced. This is one of the first times we get to see a lot of outside family involved and they fell together perfectly with the storyline.
I wish I could share my favorite part, but I can't because it's a little spoilery. Let's just say the climax of the story didn't piss me off like some misunderstandings and "if they would just talk to each other" tend to.
These books just keep getting better and better. I can't believe we have to wait until February 2016 to read the next book!
