This book is really fun, You know its got two interesting characters who challenge each other and you also meet some of the other characters from the first two books of the series which pulls them together nicely. Its funny, romantic, and interesting. Guaranteed a good read to those who like this type of book.

Another book in Foster's "SBC" Extreme Fighters series. This is Harley Handleman's story. He is determined to win the title after having had to back down three previous times. When he rents a cabin from Anastasia Bradley things get complicated. He becomes attracted to her, attempts are made on her life and as a life coach, she wants to help him. Typical Foster storyline with some familiar characters from "Simon Says" and "Causing Havoc." Quick read.

I love this series. Harley and Anastasia are a great couple and you get to read about the others from the previous books too. The byplay between these 2 characters is great. I hope this isn't the end.

Third in Foster's SBC Fighters series. First two are "Causing Havoc" and "Simon Says". Good reads.

Love this series. I do like MMA but even if I didn't these would rock. If you love Lori Foster, these are a must!

After reading "Say No to Joe?" an some of Lori Foster's other work, the characters in this book were terrible. I could not stand Harley! Lori Foster's work is not consistent, in my opinion. The book is either really good, or really not. It may be just a clash in preference... 1 star.

I have to give this book an okay rating. Not nearly as good as Simon Says. The book sets Anastasia up so well, but she peters out as the book progresses. The big issue about her coaching and Harvey's control issues never goes anywhere and I never really get why they are interested in each other. Plus the story line with Barber and Jasmine was just dumb and pat and shouldn't have been there. Not a bad book, but not something I would choose to read again.

I enjoyed this story very much; it was a very fast read. Good characters and good character development - I really liked Harley and Stacia but I also like Barber too. I enjoy this SBC series and will continue to pursue it...

Great story, can be read as part of the series or as a stand alone. In depth characters and plot. A pretty explicit sexually, definitely wouldn't let my teen daughter read this but lots of fun for us older women.

Love Lori Foster and the SBC Fighters Series. This one is no different the first two in that there is a main woman and man with a side love story. I can not wait to read the next book regardless of its reviews.

If you haven't read this author, be warned that she's pretty graphic when it comes to the bedroom scenes. If I were rating a movie, I would rate this book PG-13 or maybe R as far as romance novels go. If you blush easily, this book isn't for you. If you like a good story and can handle pretty descriptive sensual language, you'll enjoy this book.

Good, short, steamy read. It has a different cover than the picture, but it's still same book.

Once again another enjoyable read from Foster. While not the depth of storyline some romance novels now embrace, still a very cozy and sensual series.

I really loved this book. It was a sequel to her previous books about extreme fighters. Can't wait to read the next.

'Hard to Handle' is not really any better or any worse than the others in the SBC Fighters series, just not really riveting. The main plot revolves around Harley Handleman and Stasia, his "life coach" and his issues and various attempts on her life. There's also a secondary romantic plot for Barber, Dakota's musician friend from the previous book, and his new lead singer. All of them end up in Harmony, and there's plenty of interaction with characters from the other titles in the series.

I don't want to say that Lori Foster's most recent books are getting worse and worse, but they're definitely not keeping my interest. She used to have really fun and distinctive characters/plots, but lately all the heroes and heroines are running together (partly because they all keep showing up in books together) and the writing style and dialogue seems almost amateurish. I've been skimming more than really reading them.
