ARC Book review: Holding Strong (Ultimate #2) by Lori Foster

Available March 31st
eARC provided by publisher through Netgalley for review

An up-and-coming MMA fighter wants more than just one night from a woman fleeing her past in New York Times bestselling author Lori Foster's irresistible new novel 
Heavyweight fighter Denver Lewis plays real nice, but he doesn't share. That's why he's been avoiding top-notch flirt Cherry Peyton. But a man can only resist those lush curves for so long. Their encounter surpasses all his fantasies, bringing out protective urges that Cherry's about to need more than she knows… 
Denver's combination of pure muscle and unexpected tenderness has been driving Cherry wild. Yet no sooner does she get what she's been craving than old troubles show up on her doorstep. And this time, Cherry can't hide behind a carefree facade. Because the man by her side is one who'll fight like hell to keep her safe…if only she'll trust him enough to let him…

This is the second book in Lori Foster's new MMA fighter series. Denver Lewis has had a thing for Cherry Peyton for a while but he doesn't like games and Cherry seems to like to flirt with everyone. Once he finally gives in though he is all in. Cherry has been interested in Denver for a long time but something in her past comes back to haunt her and she has to try to put away her hard fought independence to let Denver and his friends help her. There is the romance between Denver and Cherry going on as well as the threat to Cherry by her former foster brothers.  Finding out what they are after and keeping Cherry safe becomes a big part of Denver's life along with training for a big fight he has coming up and helping out at the rec center. While i enjoyed the book the secondary characters were more entertaining to me that the main characters. For some reason i just could not click with Denver and Cherry.  It seemed to drag here and there for me too. Enjoying the series but this one is not my favorite.
