Lori Foster comes through again with The Fearless One, the second book in the Osborn Brothers series. There’s lots of mystery and suspense along with good characters, including Tuff, an adorable dog. It can be read as a stand alone but I think it is more fun knowing the characters from the first book in the series, The Dangerous One. I recommend both books in the series!

Jedidiah Stephens is a woman on a mission, she arrived in the Colorado Rockies with one plan, to find out what happened to her family. The details about their deaths doesn't sit well with her and she wants answers, so she applies to work at the campground. While she's working she can do her own investigating and see just who is hanging around the campground.

It's the perfect way to find the answers she needs, but what she doesn't expect to find there though is love ...

The pages of The Fearless One take you to the Colorado Rockies and into the life of Jedidiah Stephens, a woman desperate for answers. While our heroine searches for clues about her family and works at the campground she befriends her boss Memphis, a man that she could easily fall for, but can't. Her life definitely does not have room for love in it, as she is always on the run, and she never feels settled enough to put down roots. But then again she has never met a man like Memphis, he could be the one to finally make her want to stay. I loved watching these to fall for one another, their union put a nice little squeeze on my heart.

From beginning to end these two kept me entertained and fully engaged, I could not put my tablet down, I HAD to see how it would all end. (And that ending was pretty amazing too, my heart loved it!) Once again this author has given us a well written and emotionally rich tale to get lost in, and characters we don't want to let go of when the last page comes! I have a feeling readers are going to love this newest addition to the Osborn Brother series, highly recommend!

I requested an advanced copy of this title from the publisher and I am voluntarily leaving my honest and unbiased opinion.

Lori has done it again. She always gives us characters that are relatable and likeable. The Fearless One tells the story of Jedediah and Memphis, and an adorable dog named Tuff, who is devoted to Diah. There is heat, heart, and lots of intrigue to make it hard to put the book down. We are also introduced to another couple that we will probably get to know better in a later story. I hope so! Keep up the good work. Lori, you rock!

I just read the most entertaining book. As a longtime fan or even new reader to Lori Foster, this story has something for everyone. While this is book 2, in the Osborne series, it stands alone. One of the best things Lori Foster does well, she integrates characters from various books into different series, and all are fully flushed out, personality driven characters. Im liking Remmy more and more and this is his second appearance as a secondary character. This book plays off the Mackenzie’s series, but is completely separate. I love the dog, steals a couple of scenes. But Memphis our hero and his fearless lady have fireworks, and passion, and just some funny interactions. The book is very hard to put down once started. You get drawn into this campground revitalization yet underground criminal element to trap the drug dealers, traffickers so forth. Highly recommend this for fun and twisting adventure to love, danger, and capturing the criminals. There’s a second chance for everyone.

A fascinating story with the other Osborn brother, Memphis. He is probably one of the most patient and seemingly laid back male character that I’ve read in awhile. But, given the right circumstance, he’s just as tough and protective as his brother. When Diah arrives to get a job at his newly acquired campground, he’s sure that there is more to her story than what she says, but he wants her to trust him enough to tell him her story on her own. He, also, has his own secrets regarding his agenda for the campground. It was a pleasure to revisit old friends such as: Hunter, Jodi, Remmy, and Madison.

Jedidiah or Diah as she likes to be called has been running for most of her life.Her family died in a fire and the man who drug her out a window was not really a good man but he was for her. When she finds some evidence after he passes away, Diah along with her faithful dog, goes to a campground and asks for a job. She thinks there is evidence at the campground and wants to snoop around to locate it.
Memphis has purchased a run down campground and plans to open back up but is going to keep an eye out for criminals. He know Diah is keeping secrets but hires her anyway, even though she didn't leave him much choice.
As they are fixing up the grounds, they get closer and the chemistry between them is something neither have experienced before. When Diah's past returns will Memphis be able to keep her safe?
I believe this is my all time favorite book by Lori Foster! I have always loved her stories but this one just sort of grabs you and doesn't let go. Action packed. Sexy. A dog. And a BFF. I cracked up laughing at some parts. A woman who doesn't trust easily and a guy who is almost like a hero.

Another great read by Lori Foster. I loved the character of Jedediah. She was forced to live a life that most would not survive yet she has managed to become a determined and strong woman. Memphis is such a complicated guy. He is a tech nerd and also someone who wants to do some good in the world thru some unusual ways. I love his relationship with BBF Madison! Ever since Madeline announced her was her BFF that was it. I love seeing past characters like Hunter reappear with his wife Jodi. This story was full of suspense and romance which I loved.

Ah I’ve always loved Memphis – the town, recipes, songs about Memphis, and now Memphis Osborne. As many times as I’ve been camping, I’ve never lucked into a shower scene like Diah. The book is worth it for the shower scene. On a serious note, human trafficking is so so sick. This book may be fiction, but the handling of the topic is not only realistic but beautifully done. I’m giving a standing ovation, complete with whistles, claps, and cheers, for the treatment of Remmy. I wanted his inner thug to be power washed with white paint and goodness. I knew he’d be the best good guy ever. The Fearless One gives the reader some humor, some heat, and a lot of heart.

Non-stop action, twists and turns, emotional, touching, gripping, intense, and riveting. All words to describe this latest book by Lori Foster. It features Memphis Osborn and Jedediah Stephens, and includes Memphis’s brother, Hunter, and characters from the McKenzie’s series. A wonderful collection of characters, I was hooked from the first page. I loved every page!

OUTSTANDING! You are grabbed into this book from page 1. You don't want to put it down. Great characters. Storyline is fantastic. Might be one of Lori Foster's best yet. This is a MUST read. Love the whole series.

A wonderful continuation of the Osborn Brothers series! This is the second book, The Dangerous One being the first book.

Memphis Osborn has purchased a rundown isolated campground in the Colorado Rockies known to be a convenient place for shady dealings. Memphis plans to encourage those types to camp while having enough hidden tech to hear/see and then stop whatever deals or plans that are made while in the camp. The camp is still under renovations when a woman and her dog appears out of nowhere to tell him she is there for her interview he has no clue about.

Jedediah Stephens is looking for answers and she is also tired of constantly running from the danger breathing down her neck. The search for answers lead her to the Colorado Rockies and an isolated campground she has vague memories of. Getting a job at the campground would be ideal for her search if not for the incredibly handsome and overly helpful owner Memphis.

They both are keeping secrets from each other but to solidify their relationship, gain trust and keep each other safe, they both will need to open up and share the secrets they’ve been keeping. This was a wonderful page turner and I read it in one sitting. I have yet to read a book by Lori Foster that I did not truly enjoy.

*I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader copy of this book.*

Wow. The Fearless One kept me on the edge of my seat, and holding my breath, from beginning to end. The author deals with some pretty heavy topics in this series but it doesn’t overwhelm or put me off. Instead, it keeps me engaged and reading. Loved it!

Memphis is such a nice guy! He is alpha to the max, with a side of compassion and caring that is super sexy. And he’s a techie – my Kryptonite. Loved his snark, too. Diah, as she likes to be called, is a very special character and imho is SO lucky to meet up with Memphis. He is so protective of her - something she doesn’t know how to handle as she has never had it. And Tuff, the dog. He’s like a special child – with a big personality, too!

Characters pop up, from previous stories, and make a big impact. I do enjoy the visits but this book is definitely a standalone. Nobody does this type of story better than Ms. Foster – I loved this book.

Another best seller for Lori! This is a page turner for sure! I love her books and all her new ones become my new favorites ones. Talk about some feisty and gutsy women, this book has a few of them and they can kick ass when cornered. I love your books Lori, thanks for writing such a great book!

Once again I am blown away by Lori Foster and her talent in writing these amazing books! I have been looking forward to what would come next in this series and was not disappointed. I was officially hooked on this book from the first meeting of Diah and Memphis. Tuff is one awesome dog with a great personality and such a wonderful companion for Diah. It was so hard to put this book down and now I can't wait to see what will be written next!
