First Thought when Finished: Getting Rowdy by Lori Foster is the best in a series that is filled with great books!

Story Thoughts: Bad guys: Check! Bad Ass leading characters (Rowdy/Avery): Check! Visits from characters that I already know and love: Check! What does this equal? A book that I love and adore! I will put this on my reread shelf (not many books go there) and visit Rowdy again in the future. The action was fantastic, the love story very organic and real, and the characters were brilliant. You don’t even have to read the rest of the series to enjoy Getting Rowdy though you will enjoy the other books too. Getting Rowdy was a page turner from beginning to end!

Character Thoughts: I loved bad-boy Rowdy Yates. He is that alpha male that gives off the “you can’t have me for more than one night but you know that you want me” vibe. The great thing about those alphas is you know they will meet their kryptonite sooner or later. Avery was great kryptonite. She didn’t play his games, did things on her own terms, and had enough stuff to deal with that she never asked more than he could give. They had explosive chemistry and off the charts sex appeal. Yep, I loved them!

Final Thoughts:Can I just say that I miss Rowdy already!

  1. Fantastic Review sweetie. Yes Rowdy and Avery’s love story was real. Not only I love Lori Foster Alpha male heroes that the heroines are able to bring them to their knees but all her novels have a realistic vibe to them. All her novels are keepers and re-reads for me. To date have yet to come across one I did not like.

  2. I just added this to my wish list on audible, maybe is time for me to discover the Lori Foster’s magic. I’m already liking the hero, plus it’s read by Jim Frangione,YAY!!
    This is definitely my next purchase 🙂

  3. Ahhhh! I can’t wait to read this Felicia! I love Lori’s books, she always writes extremely sexy men and very self-sufficient women and they all just make me happy. I’ve heard nothing but good things about Rowdy and I’m so ready to get my hands on him!

  4. I want to meet Rowdy! (Though, I have to admit, I’m not a huge fan of that name…it’s a little redneck. But I can get over that, especially if he’s a hot bad-ass.) And good for Avery for not taking any sh*t from him. Darned alpha males.

    • I had to laugh that she used that name since (no lie) my cousin Deck named his kids Rowdy and Sterling. We teased him like crazy when he did that (they are teenagers now). Their last name is Fox so you can just imagine!

  5. I couldn’t resist seeing your rating but I kept myself from reading tbr whole review. I am on Bare It All right now. The mystery of Annie is still there and with the characters so closely connected I am staying away from reading too many reviews. If you say it is a five though, I can’t wait!
