Series: Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor bk 3
Author: Lori Foster
The one woman he couldn’t have was the only woman he desired…
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 swore she’d never trust another man again. Still, something about this strong, sexy hero with the tender touch makes her want to believe him. As Jackson hunts downs 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?
From the way that Jackson behaved in Trace of Fever I knew that he would be an irreverent hero. A lot like Joe from from Just Say Joe (one of my personal favorite books of Lori’s) and Michael from My Man Michael. Jackson is a perfect mix of Joe and Micheal in his humor and his intensity, which ahs made him one of my top 3 favorite of Lori’s hero.
He has had a thing for Alani for awhile and it drives him nuts that he ca’t remember what happened between them the night where he finally got her in bed. Some of my favorite parts of this book are are when he is trying to tell her what happened between them.
When he asks her in the grocery store if she have him a hummer to get her over her mad I laughed out loud. The rest of hat conversation is just mean on her part but I have to say that Jackson deserved it.
What I liked about this book is that we get to know Jackson and Alani better. We get Alani’s side of what happened when she was kidnapped by the human traffickers. She is a strong woman and now that she has decided that she wants Jackson and her feelings for him she is all in. What she doesn’t count on is the people that are after Jackson and now after her.
Now that Jackson has finally gotten Alani into his bed he should be celebrating, but it appears that it has put her in the crosshairs of someone that is after him. Now he not only has to deal with Alani’s brother dealing with him and Alani, but Arizona, and someone that is trying to kill him.
There wasn’t anything I didn’t like about this book. The interactions between all the characters was at times funny, and other times intense. The dialogue was probably the thing that I loved the most about this book. The interaction between Jackson and Alani spoke of a couple that had known each other a while and had finally decided to act on the feelings that they had for each other, which is where us the reader came into the relationship.
There is also a secondary relationship that we see start to develop between the mysterious Arizona and a bounty hunter Spencer. We just get the beginnings of this potential relationship and it sets up for the next book in the series which is Arizona’s book. Just from what we get in this book I am excited to read this book.
If you have read the other books in this series then you won’t want to miss this book as I think it is the best book in the series so far.
