Soon after a woman comes into money, her life gets complicated. New threats loom on the horizon. Old acquaintances suddenly resurface. And the man she’s seeing wants more than she planned on offering in Lori Foster’s delicious new novel, Close Contact.

Maxi Nevar was perfectly content with her life the way it was. Between working as a personal shopper and enjoying an easy no-strings relationship, life was good. But then she receives a large influx of cash in the form of a family inheritance, and now everyone seems to want to be her new BFF… or do they?

Now living in the secluded house left to her by her late grandmother, mysterious things start happening that she can’t explain. For example, she wakes up outside on the lawn and has no idea how she got there in the first place. And that’s just one of the eerie events that has her on edge. Confused and afraid, Maxi knows who she can turn to for help: the Body Armor security agency.

Enter Miles Dartman, the former heavyweight MMA fighter turned bodyguard that Maxi has been seeing. Although she wants his help in uncovering who is behind this insideous game of terror, she’s not altogether certain that she wants to build a lasting romance with him, even as Miles tries to show her that life is more worthwhile when shared with someone else. Will Maxi summon the courage necessary to risk everything and give him a chance?

The third novel in Foster’s Body Armor series offers up a plucky leading lady and the requisite hunky hero with a heart of gold, a guy many women would happily fall for. While I enjoy a good love story as much as anyone else, Close Contact offers up more than just a lot of steam. This is actually a tautly woven psychological thriller with plenty of surprises and lots of shady characters lurking about the fringes of Maxi’s otherwise idyllic life. If you want a fast-paced story that will keep you guessing and make your heart beat faster, you won’t want to miss Lori Foster’s Close Contact.
