Loved it! He's an extreme fighter turned Hollywood movie star who is now living in Ohio after being exonerated for a crime he didn't commit. She's an art gallery owner, pleasantly plump and beautiful to boot, but she doesn't think he'd have any interest in her because of her size. He finds her wildly attractive, unlike the size zero starving models in Hollywood and pursues her relentlessly. She keeps turning him down until one day her no good brother's gambling debts threaten not only his life but hers, and she turns to Jude for help. Jude's more than willing to protect her - for a price. But Jude soon learns that he never wants to let her go.

Sexy bad boy Jude Jamison, a former prize-fighter and wealthy actor who has given up Hollywood for sleepy Stillbrook, Ohio, develops a mad crush on curvy, conservative gallery owner May Price in this appealing contemporary romance from bestseller Foster (Wild). Though May does her best to thwart Jude's bold advances, she winds up pleading for his help after her ne'er-do-well brother, $50,000 in debt, is beaten by loan shark goons. May and her brother have no choice but to borrow the money from Jude and hide out at his palatial Stillbrook estate. When Jude discovers that the terms of the debt involve a personal threat, he steps in to protect both May and himself. Jude and May are so graphically portrayed that it's impossible not to feel heat radiating off the pages, especially during their hard-earned love scenes, but their hostile back-and-forth makes their relationship, at times, forced and uncomfortable. However, neatly dovetailing plotlines and plenty of family drama more than compensate.

Another fun romance in the style of Janet Evanovich and Jennifer Crusie.

There's only so much frustration a guy can take before he gets a little nutty. For Jude Jamison, his frustration has a name - May Price. She's everything the former Hollywood bad boy actor came to Stillbrook, Ohio, hoping to find: open, honest, loveable, and full of those luscious curves you don't find on stick-figure starlets - curves May doesn't seem to appreciate in herself. Every time Jude tries to get closer to the skittish business woman, to take her in her arms, she thinks he's joking. Joking? Joking does not involve a lot of cold-shower therapy. Time for new tactics. If May can't respond to his sly compliments and sexy innuendos, he'll just have to spell it out for her. Jude Jamison is going to lay down the law for May Price. And after that she'll have no delusions about how much he wants her...

Can Jude win over May? You'll just have to read to find out...

May was a voluptious woman. She always thought she was too fat. Jude always thought she was perfect. He was a star in several movies. When he came home and saw her, he couldn't believe his luck.
He had to find a way to get her in his clutches. Her brother was an alcoholic. He is the one that helped him do just that.

Great follow up story to her SBC Fight Series. Jude is
every bit as bad & sexy as "sublime" or "havoc" are.
Good chemistry between Jude & May. Love how the heroine (May) is not prototypical beauty, but hero (Jude) loves
her for it. Lots of suspense that ends in happy-ever-after.

Frustrated with trying to get the girl he wants, retired actor and extreme fighter Jude Jamison tries being more direct. Once again, May laughs him off, but when her brother shows up on her doorstep beaten, it's Jude's safety she fears for and his house she runs to. As the situation becomes more convoluted and dangerous, both May and Jude fight to live and decide which direction their relationship should go. A very fun suspenseful romance

After a horrible car accident which caused movie star Jude Jamison to be tried for murder, Jude moved to a small town in Ohio where he met May Price and got roped into her brothers money troubles. The loan shark beat the hell out of Tim and threatened both May and Jude. Jude, already half in love with May, offers his house and body as protection for May and her brother. The mystery concerning who the loan shark is and what connection he has to Jude is intense and fraught with danger.

This is the first book I've read by Lori Foster though I own quite a few. It was terrific. The mystery was suspenseful, the hero was spectacular and the heroine was a plus size with body image issues. It was wonderfully realistic and endearing.

I absolutely enjoy this author! I have been reading everything that she has written, and so far have not been disappointed. This one is one of my favorites. I love that May is not your typical femme fatal; She is buxom, curvy, and desirable. Jude is a hot SCB ex fighter and very determined to get May into bed. There is a second book after this one and is just as good (Murphy's Law). You are introduced to these two characters in this book. A great read!

It was an ok story that would have been better if the main characters didn't have to have sex every other page. I understand that sex in a love story is needed, but I could have watched a porn movie if I wanted this much! It was like Lori Foster had this idea for a story and instead of compounding it into a novel, she took a novella and added enough sex scenes to make a novel. Lame in my opinion.

Enjoyable read. Loved the perspective of the main character as a male; could've used a bit more fleshing out of the female lead. The ending seemed abrupt, but overall, a good read.

Lori Foster's books are always so much fun and irresistible. Jude Durant is a gorgeous movie star who moves to the Midwest, a small town and falls for an art gallery owner who is not beautiful or skinny. She does not understand what he sees in her, although she is a wonderful person. Lots of suspense and plot twists make this a good read.

As usual, a great Foster (erotic) romance. Didn't care for the ending as it left you hanging; a must buy the sequal coming in September.

Former wrestling champ turned movie star Jude Jamison has moved to Stillbrook, Ohio, to escape the pressure of fame and a scandal that haunts him. Tired of the artifice and cookie--cutter looks of Hollywood women, Jude finds Stillbrook's pleasingly plump art dealer, May Price, much to his liking. May finds it hard to believe that a handsome celebrity would be interested in her. But when her gambling, alcoholic brother, Tim, shows up beaten half to death with orders to kill Jude or die, May breeches the fragile wall between her and Jude to protect both him and her brother. The spunky heroine and honorable hero are only two of the characters that make Foster's latest so good. Delightful secondary characters, such as Denny, the wrestling trainer and Jude's right-hand man, and Ashley, the sassy but loyal best friend, enhance the story and add many humorous moments. Even the psycho killer is three-dimensional. With her trademark blend of danger, humor, and passion, Foster has written another entertaining romance.

This was a good book. Not as great as the Winston Brothers and the books that stemmed from it. But pretty fast paced, and an easy read. Not much character depth. I really enjoy Lori Foster and there were several characters in this book that I hope she continues with in later books. I found myself somewhat more interested in those characters than the main ones of this story.

Lori Foster once again gives readers a delicious hero with an unusual profession. The insight into the sport of extreme fighting is intriguing and Jude is wonderfully written as a champion of the sport. May is self-assured and strong, a refreshing heroine who is unashamedly voluptuous. Jude is audacious in his relentless pursuit of May, who in turn is absolutely adorable as she struggles with her own emotions in response to his gentle, tender attentions. This is an excellently written book and I can easily give it a hearty recommendation. - Laurie Damron

I loved this book so much that after reading this book I went and searched for the second book in this series. I could not find it at my library so I ordered it. I can't wait to read the second novel in this short series.

This book is about Jude Jamison, a retired boxer whose now a Hollywood actor. He falls for a woman, May. She's not the kind of woman she would envision Jude ever wanting. She's voluptuous and she's not about to change it. She rebuffs his per-suite every chance she get's because she believes their's no way that a rich actor like Jude would want to date her. He on the other hand loves her curves and can't understand why she keeps on shutting him down. She doesn't seem to appreciate the woman she is. Every time he get's too close she becomes skittish like a wild animal about to flee.

After month's of going back and fourth he's about had it with all the cold showers, lack of sleep and exercise he's been doing to keep his mind off her. It takes her brother's gambling and alcohol problems to bring them together. After his brother is threatens with being killed if he doesn't pay back his debt by killing Jude, May has no other choice but to go to Jude. Now it's time for new tactics. He'll help her brother out in exchange for some time with her. Maybe with her close he can convince her that he's just the man for her......
