I give this book 4 out of 5 stars

Summary from Goodreads.com:

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?

This is my third book from Lori Foster and let me just say her books are amazing!  Her first book in this series blew me away, the second faltered a bit but she definitely came back strong in this one.  In fact one of the only major faults I had was the cover. I know, I know, don’t judge a book by it’s cover.  But come on!  All through out the book we see how studly Jackson is and how he turns every woman’s head from young to old.  The guy on the cover definitely did not fit how I pictured Jackson.  But let’s move on to the actual story.

I loved Jackson when we first met him in Trace of Fever so I was over the moon when I saw this book was focusing on him.  All the ladies will be swooning over Jackson as they read this book as he’s almost like your dream man.  He’s hot, he’s lethal, he fights to protect those who can’t protect themselves and he stops to save a poor kitten even with craziness going on around him.  How could you not love a guy like that?  There are hints that he does have a secret that he thinks will turn Alani against him but that was pretty obvious what it was but the twist on this character’s personality and actions did come as a surprise.

Alani was a fun character.  She wasn’t quite the force Molly and Pris were in the previous two books but that is quite fitting as she’s young and has been very sheltered by her brother, Trace, up until the point she was kidnapped.  The only thing that bothered me was she fell prey to the problem of a supposedly smart woman making stupid moves all in the name of trying to show no man is the boss of her.  I really don’t get why these women sometimes feel the need to shoot themselves in the foot to try and prove their independence.  Still I did enjoy her character.

One of my favorite parts was watching the interplay between Alani and Jackson and Trace and Dare as they all learn how to deal with the awkwardness of Jackson bedding his boss’s sister.   Trace and Jackson are so similar that it’s funny trying to see Trace be all disapproving over the relationship and realizing that his baby sister has grown up.

It’s hard for me to say if this one was my favorite or if Dare’s story was my favorite but either way this is definitely a series to pick up!
