    1. 4 Hiding from your Past Stars Spoilers“So help me, Denver, if you walk away now, I’ll” “What?” Tipping his head, he looked her over. “What would you do?” Lifting her chin, Cherry said, “I’ll spread a rumor that you’re a lousy lay.”-Cherry and DenverHolding Strong the 2nd book in the Ultimate book was better for me then the first one. This book had a steadier pace and more action in it then the first book. I also liked this couple a whole lot more then the last book. Somethi [...]

    2. DNF @ 45%I will be the minority in this, and that is perfectly fine with me. But for personal reasons this book and I didn't get a long very well. It was my own reaction to the characters that didn't sit well with me, but I kept at it thinking, something will change. I chose to DNF because it couldn't keep my overactive brain to settle and concentrate on the story. Having judged the Denver from the very few pages, it was kind of a losing battle. I know it isn't fair, but the first impression is [...]

    3. This is book two in the "Ultimate" series by Lori Foster. This installment I enjoyed even more than the first. I loved being back in the MMA fighters world, and I especially loved fighter; Denver Lewis! He is one over the top possessive alphabut not in a jerk kind of way!!! He has an aggressive side yes; but he has a tender side too when it comes to the woman he loves. My only complaint with Denver, is his calling his woman"Girl" That drove me bonkers!! For whatever reason, I don't like it when [...]

    5. 3 Holding Strong Stars*ARC provided per publisher via NetGalley*I am long time Lori Foster Fan! She always writes her alphas big and strong, uber protective, and yet sweet at the same time. Denver Lewis is no different!Set in the world of MMA fighting, this is the romantic tale of Denver Lewis and his struggle to come to grips with his want and need for a young, vivacious Cherry Peyton. This story has a tight knit group of alpha men, all friends in and out of the ring and the gal pals/love inter [...]

    6. 3.5 He Sees, He Wants and Luckily She Does Too! Stars * * * 1/2There are times when certain authors bring a tale to you It can either work for the reader or not. It will depend on what the reader wants at any given time and if they are willing to go with the flow. Lori Foster has always worked for me in the past so I was pleased to be able to read this.Lori Foster creates hunks, all kinds and in this series, they just happen to be MMA fighters. They are a close knit group and past main character [...]

    7. *** 3 Lackluster Stars! ***Review Posted to: SweptAwayByRomanceLet me start by saying I've been a HUGE Lori Foster fan for a very long time, I love her books and re-read my favorites frequently, but there is no denying that this new MMA series is not living up to what I’ve come to expect from her. I absolutely loved her SBC Fighter Series, so maybe it’s me comparing the two which admittedly, is unfair, but impossible not to when there are cameos from the main characters from the SBC series.D [...]

    8. 3.5 stars****Full Review****I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Denver has had his eye on Cherry for awhile but since it seems like Cherry has her eye on everyone he has held himself back. When it becomes clear that they only want each other, it's on. With family drama and trust issues plaguing our couple, they both must fight for what they truly want. The hot sexy times come up a lot faster in th [...]

    9. We all remember Denver & Cherry from the first books in the series.Denver is one of the fighters in Cannon Colter's gym in Warfield, Ohio. Denver recently signed with SBC, the big fighting association, but is still living and training in Warfield. Cherry is the roommate of Colton's sister Merissa.Both Denver & Cherry have been totally attracted to each other ever since they first met.but Denver never tried anything because he thought Cherry was too much of a partygirl and a flirt she tal [...]

    10. Received an ARC for reviewIs it bad that I picked an ARC from one of my favorite authors and a series I love to start the year with? NAH! I didn't think so either. I absolutely LOVE this series and these MMA fighters. Denver and Cherry are amazing not only together but fighting the bad guys too. Oh boy, now I can't wait for Stack and Armie's HEA. Man did Armie grow some in this book and the scenes between Stack and herlet's just say their book will be HOT! Bonuswe got to see Rowdy again, he's st [...]

    11. FOR MORE REVIEWS AND GIVEAWAYS, DO CHECK OUT MY BLOG: PLOT: 4CHARACTERS: 4COVER: 5OVERALL RATING: 4I have never read any book by Lori Foster before so this was a great introduction to her although this was the second book to the series it was a standalone so it wasn't hard for me to understand the plot. Although there were references about previous characters throughout the book, it was mentioned in a way that you would still get a grasp of what happened. So if you feel that you liked this book [...]

    12. Lori Foster is one of the first adult romance authors whose writing I fell in love with way back in middle school when I was still having to sneakily check them from the library and read under the covers after my folks had gone to bed. Almost ten years later, I still devour her books every chance I can get. I love that no matter which new series Foster creates, she can still find a new way to introduce old characters. She’s probably the only romance author that I know of that does this so ofte [...]

    13. An uber alpha male, with a tender side, finds the woman of his dream in Holding Strong.Denver Lewis has been avoiding Cherry Peyton since they met. He sees her as a man eater and he’s a one woman type guy that doesn’t share, when it comes to Cherry. Cherry Peyton has been pining away for Denver but he always seems to be avoiding her.

    14. *I received a free ARC of Holding Strong from the author in exchange of an honest and unbiased review*Lori Foster has done it again! Holding Strong is a beautiful contemporary romance with tough fighters, women who can hold their own, friendship, loyalty, smexiness and lots of suspense!This and all my other reviews are originally posted on my blog(un)Conventional Bookviews

    15. GENRE: ContemporaryTHEME: Romance, SportsRECEIVED: NetgalleyBLOG: seeingnight/3.5 starsREVIEW: I was super excited to continue Lori Fosters Ultimate series, I adored Cannon and Yvette story so I knew Cherry and Denver were going to have big shoes to fill for me. What I love most about this series is how Foster connects her leads, there is tension, suspense smoking hot romance, and two people who are just “real”. Holding Strong follows Heavyweight MMA fighter Denver Lewis who has had his eye [...]

    16. This review was originally posted at The Book Nympho Denver and Cherry have been dancing around each other for the last few months. There was an instant attraction when they met. Cherry has tried to get Denver's attention and since he avoided her she thinks he had no interest in her. But one night they finally gave in to each other. Denver and Cherry have hot times between the sheets while trying to get closer to each other and figure out how to battle issues and people from their passes. While [...]

    17. Far and away one of Lori's best!!!An excerpt from my review to be posted on Talkbookstome blog:I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this book. It was far and away one of her best books in the past several years. The characters practically jumped off the pages and I cannot express how much I loved Denver. He was such a surprise to me, since I had been looking forward to Cannon and Armie for so long, I do believe that I overlooked Denver! Cherry is fun and flirty and she reminded me of well…me when I was young [...]

    18. What can I say about this one? I loved it a such as th last one in the series. Cherry and Denver were great together. Both had some trouble in their past(her more than him), and Cherry' s trouble was the problem in the book since it came looking for her. Denver was a typical alpha male being all bossy and protective. He did get on my nerves a bit calling Cherry "girl", but the bonus scene from Cannon's point of view made up for it. I love love love the interaction between the guys! I could read [...]

    19. Holding Strong by Lori Foster is a 2015 HQN Publication. I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Sports heroes are really hot right now and although I have never actually watched these types of fighting matches, I liked the idea of the MMA as the backdrop instead of the usual baseball or football trope. I've read a introduction novella for this series and was intrigued enough by it to check out one of the full length stories. Denver and [...]

    20. I feel like Lori Foster is usually walking this knife's edge of romance novels. Her heroes are very commanding and alpha, and it takes very little for them to tumble over the side into becoming, as the ladies at Smart Bitches have coined it, the Alph-hole. Unfortunately, in this installation, we seem to have an Alph-hole.This seems like a picky distinction, I know. But believe me when I say that there is a difference. There's a big difference between a man who's take-charge and a man who's contr [...]

    21. Holding Strong is a great addition to Foster's Ultimate Series. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it, I loved the main characters of Denver and Cherry, and it was fun to read about their developing relationship. The returning secondary characters made the book even better! I thought the plot line of Cherry's former foster brothers coming after her was a good one, and I enjoyed the way it all played out. This series has such wonderful characters, and I enjoy seeing the ones who turn up from the other [...]

    22. Just when I thought Cannon would be my forever book boyfriend, Lori gives me a sexy as heck intro to Dirty Denver and let me tell you that as sad as it makes me, Cannon is number two in my life now. OMG this book is hot. I couldn't put it down. After reading 300 books since January first of this year, I have finally found "my dude". I welcome other authors to try, but I think it's going to be very very hard to depose Denver from his throne as king of my heart. <3

    23. Denver Liked this one. loved Denver, still undecided about Cherry. I wanted to LOVE this one, but it was just missing something and I can't put my finger on it. I did love seeing all the secondary characters and can't wait for the next installments!

    24. Reviewed for herding cats & burning soup. (live on the blog 1/3/18): amzn/2z0RWoYFoster has been one of my favorites for years but I've gotten a bit behind on her books. *flails* But! I'm working on catching up and that included Holding Strong. Totally on my BloggerShame pile. Again, *flails* I had a fab time with it, though.The Gist: Cherry has been wanting Denver for long as she can remember but the man is damn stubborn and resists all her ample charms. Until she flirts with another man on [...]

    25. Very good book. Cherry is a sweet girl with a difficult past. She makes friends easily, and through her roommate has become a regular at the fights and club that includes Denver. She comes across as a bit of a flirt, thanks to her close friendships with a lot of the fighters. But Denver is the one she is really interested in, and he pretty much ignores her. So she gets a little flirtier with the others in an attempt to convince herself that it doesn't matter.Denver has definitely noticed Cherry, [...]

    26. I received an advance copy of this novel from NetGalley in exchange for a review. So, listen. First things first, if you like books about big meaty MMA fighter dudes who are tied to their communities and fiercely guard the people they love-- you want to dig into Lori Foster, specifically the Ultimate Series. Because that is exactly what you'll get. This is book # 2 in the series featuring long haired, bulky Denver Lewis who has a problem. Well, a couple of problems. Specifically, a girl problem. [...]

    27. First off, I CANNOT wait for Armie's book. If it turns out he's not into spanking, I'm going to be devastated. I seriously want some sexy, ripped Armie spankings. Anyhow, I'm a huge Lori Foster fan, so I'm always over-the-moon when Harelquin allows me to get my hands on one of her books early. Thanks for that. It made me doubly happy when Denver and Cherry hit the sheets within the first few pages. I realize some people don't care for that, but I'd read the sexual tension between the two in the [...]

    28. Either 4.5 stars or a straight up 5!!! I loved Denver and Cherry's story to pieces!! I personally think it blew the novella and first book out of the water ;) Full review:Lori Foster has started each one of the Ultimate books with a little blurb about MMA fighting and specifics about the characters and story she’s sharing. In Holding Strong, she mentions that this is one of her sexiest books ever (paraphrased). I wholeheartedly agree, Ms. Foster! Very hot, very romantic, very, very…. oh, hel [...]
