ARC Review: Savor the Danger (Lori Foster)
She may be aloof, and more pretty than gorgeous, but Alani Rivers is the kind of woman a hot-blooded mercenary can't forget, no matter how hard he tries. So when Jackson Savor wakes up next to the naked, sleeping beauty—with no memory of what happened— he knows he's been drugged…even if Alani doesn't.
After she was kidnapped, Alani vowed never to trust another man again. Still, something about this strong, sexy hero with the tender touch makes her want to believe him. As Jackson hunts down a mysterious intruder, he swears he'll move heaven and earth to keep Alani safe. But what really happened that night? And will the truth bring them closer than they ever thought possible—or put Alani squarely in harm's way again?
Lori Foster has done it again! Savor the danger is the most recent book in her "Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor" series and just like the previous two, she doesn't disappoint.
Jackson is cocky and gorgeous, which is sometimes a horrible combination, but the author pulls it off well in this book. He's absolutely smitten over Alani and curbs his attitude around her. Mostly. And despite the fact that he doesn't remember their first round under the sheets, he knows that the connection is still smoldering and that if Alani will let him, he will reignite the fire from that night. His protective nature brings out the best in him as he takes charge of Alani's safety (despite her brother's objections).
Alani seems like the All-American girl. Sweet, pretty, sheltered. But being sheltered hasn't always worked for her in the past and she's not about to be the damsel in distress again. She's strong, determined and won't shrink back and just let things happen to her again.
One of the things I love about this series of books is that Lori Foster creates the perfect blend of tough, sexy, protective men but creates women that are strong and independent to compliment each of the men.. Sure, they need protection, but they have all been a victim once before and refuse to be again. I love these men, but I admire all of the women. Molly, Priss and Alani are all heros in this series, as well.
The story is just as intense as the last two, but with a little more mystery involved. It kept me on the edge of my seat and I didn't want to put the book down.
What's not to love about this book? Action, danger, suspense, mystery and plenty of steam! Adding a twist towards the end not only drew me in, but also gave us a sneak peek into the next book. I can't wait for it to come out!
Steaming up the windows!
This one has a little more heat than the last two. The chemistry between Alani and Jackson is palpable from the first page and the author doesn't disappoint!
If you liked the first two books in this series, you will love this one! If you haven't read them yet, what are you waiting for?!? Check out my Sexy Snippet featuring Savor the Danger here.
