About UNDER PRESSURE:
He can protect anything except his heart
Leese Phelps's road hasn't been an easy one, but it's brought him to the perfect job—working for the elite Body Armor security agency. And what his newest assignment lacks in size, she makes up for in fire and backbone. But being drawn to Catalina Nicholson is a dangerous complication, especially since it could be the very man who hired Leese who's threatening her.
What Catalina knows could get her killed. But who'd believe the sordid truth about her powerful stepfather? Beyond Leese's ripped body and brooding gaze is a man of impeccable honor. He's the last person she expects to trust—and the first who's ever made her feel safe. And he's the only one who can help her expose a deadly secret, if they can just stay alive long enough…

"Under Pressure was a good start to a new series by author Lori Foster. It is my first book by this author and it won't be the last."
Under Pressure is the first book in the Body Armor series by Lori Foster. This story is all about Cat who has a deadly secret that could get her killed, in walks Leese her assigned bodyguard who is sent to protect her. From there the story unravels.
The plot of Under Pressure was my favorite part of the book. On the first page the story kicks of and the suspense and intrigue continues thought out the book. You don't really know who is the bad guy is it this person or that person. The "topic" of the secret isn't something flimsy it's a real serious crime and I loved that it wasn't down played to just focus on the romance. There is of course a romance and one I did struggle with at first, I think this is due to my struggle with Cat. Me and Cat had a tug of war relationship. Straight of she wants Leese (and of course he's hot you can't not want him) but I thought it was a bit much and throughout the book she does do some things to annoy me. However she definitely redeems her self by the end of the book. And I have to say in retrospect I get her attraction and thoughts at the beginning now I have read the book.
Under Pressure also has some great side characters. Justice who I adore is another bodyguard and I can't wait to read his story in the next book. I also really liked Sahara the head of the Body Armor agency.
Under Pressure is 384 pages but it definitely didn't feel like that it was fast paced and played out like a movie in my head. I could definitely see this as a movie or TV show with it's mix of intrigue, suspense, romance, and action. Overall I enjoyed Under Pressure and I look forward to the next book, Hard Justice coming in April!
