For the woman who’s his perfect match, he’s willing to break the rules…
The moment Brand Berry meets beautiful, driven Sahara Silver, the connection between them is electric. It’s also something he can’t pursue. Sahara wants him, sure—to join Body Armor, where his MMA skills, size and cocky attitude make him perfect for her elite crew of bodyguards. For Sahara, the agency always comes first, and Brand needs more. Yet when she’s kidnapped by men searching for her missing brother, he doesn’t hesitate.
Somewhere along the way, flirting with Brand for the sake of business turned very personal. Despite his refusal to join Body Armor, it’s Brand who steps up when Sahara needs him most. Now there’s no more time for games, and no point denying the hunger they both feel. They’ll escape together or not at all. But if they survive, can Sahara finally surrender control to claim this blazing passion?
Fast Burn is the fourth and final book in Loro Foster’s Body Armor series. I’ve enjoyed this romantic suspense series from the guys to the suspenseful threads. While I am sad to see it end, Foster delivered giving Sahara Silver, the owner of the agency, a delectable romance as she wrapped up an overall arc thread concerning Sahara’s brother.
Coffee Dates with Fast Burn
First Date: Throughout the series, we’ve seen Brand Berry. He is friends with the former MMA fighters who joined Body Armor and Sahara has been trying to persuade him to join. We’ve also been privy to the tantalizing chemistry between them. Both are stubborn, and from the onset, I was hooked. I loved their back and forth banter and when Sahara is kidnapped Brand unofficially joins the investigation.
Second Date: Sahara and Brand have this great chemistry that made for some hilarious moments that soon gave way to tenderness. Sahara is all business. She is sharp, clever with marketing and has taken her brother’s company to the next level as its new owner. The team adore her, fear her and will die to protect her. It was delightful seeing her struggle with wanting Brand on a professional level and needing him on a personal one. She never lets her guard down, and it was nice seeing the softer more vulnerable side of this strong woman. Want and need soon gave way to passion and it was delightful seeing them wrestle for power in and out of the bedroom. The suspense thread comes from the overall series arc. Sahara’s brother was declared dead when his boat was found at sea. Sahara has never believed him dead. Now men, one, in particular, want to know where Scott is, claiming he owes them money. When Sahara agrees to pay him, it soon becomes clear he wants something more. I have to mention how kickass Sahara is. From her attitude to quick thinking I was impressed.
Third Date: Suspense and danger-filled moments are balanced against time with the team and their wives. I loved seeing Sahara with the wives and laughed aloud a few times. Foster did a great job of sharing Scott’s tale and tying up threads leaving me satisfied. Brand and Sahara’s romance was at the heart of this story, and she gave us all the feels, growth and passion. It was hard to end this date, but I am excited to see what Foster brings us next. The book contains a sneak peek which shows promise.
Fast Burn was sizzling, suspenseful and all that I hoped Sahara’s story would be.

Aleen @ Lampshade Reader
Hahaha… yes, add it 🙂
I’m glad the fascinating Ms. Silver’s story was a strong winner for you. I always get nervous when not only am I getting the last in a series, but a long-time character whose story is leading to something big.
I am the same way. Thankfully Foster delivered for me.
That book cover screams “Read me!” Thanks for the post.

The mix of hot chemistry and suspense sounds really good! This sounds like a series that I need to read.
I need to try to find time to give Foster a chance. Your reviews make her books sound so good.
After reading the blurb and your review, this sounds like one for my reading shelf. I love bodyguards and suspense.
I love stories you have to wait for Kim. This series has been on my shelf and I’ve showcased them and am really hoping that I will get some time to dig in. Thanks for the review
Love, love, lve Lori Foster and this book sounds pretty amazing. Definitely need to grab this and glad you enjoyed it Kimberly. Hugs…RO
Yay, I am so glad you enjoy her books too.
I’m trying more romances this summer and this author is high on my list of must tries. I’m definitely writing this one down!
I am knee deep in an urban fantasy and paranormal binge Ali. I just started Jim Butcher’s series.. and everything I pick up falls in these genres. Not sure how long it will last, but riding the wave.
I love the sound of this series. I have been looking for a good romantic suspense to sink my teeth into. Thanks for the recommendation.
Happy to share. I enjoy Foster’s series and characters.
5 stars – I know it’s good then. I just saw this cover the other day and thought this would be a good book. After your review, now I know it is. I have read a Lori Foster books in the past – might be time to get back into her books. Great review!
I was excited to final get her story and yep Foster delivered for me
body guarding is a boring job though, can’t blame him for refusing
Most of the time, but they’ve had some pretty high profile and intense cases.
I still have yet to read a book by Lori Foster after seeing so many of your reviews. Is this the last book of the series?
Yes, this was the last book in the series.
