Close Contact by Lori Foster

MMA fighter Miles Dartman’s casual arrangement with personal shopper Maxi Nevar would be many men’s fantasy. She seeks him out, they have mindblowing sex, she leaves. Rinse, repeat. Yet lately, Miles wants more. And when Maxi requests his services via the Body Armor security agency, he’s ready to finally break through her defenses—and protect her day and night.

Receiving a large inheritance has brought chaos and uncertainty into Maxi’s life. Her ex has resurfaced, along with lots of former “friends,” and someone is making mysterious threats. Then there’s Miles, who doesn’t ask for anything…except her trust. Pleasure is easy. Now Maxi has to give her heart as well as her body…or risk losing a man who could be everything she needs.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

After finishing this book, I wish I had read the two that preceded it. I really enjoyed the premise of former MMA fighters turning into high-end security. I couldn’t get the description of Miles’ build out of my mind. I had a lot of imaginary perv action going on ;)

Miles and Maxi shared insane chemistry. After doing the deed three times, however, Maxi up and disappeared. This had the potential to wreck Miles as he was already let down by the end of his MMA career and he was looking for something deeper with her. Luckily he had found a new career to love in security with his fellow fighters. Fast forward two months and Maxi is back. Now she needs more from Miles. Not just company in bed. Weird things are happening on the property she’s inherited and she needs his bodyguard services.

I liked the dynamic between Miles and Maxi. Once they got past the reasons for her disappearance, things were pretty smooth sailing. Well, as smooth as could be considering there was a huge mystery to solve. I had a couple of suspects in mind and I appreciated that the author didn’t make it too obvious who the culprit was. I was indeed a bit surprised in the end. Close Contact was a steamy romantic suspense, a mystery, and a bit of a second chance romance all rolled up into one.
