LOL – Lori Foster and I must think alike, except where her heroine is named Alani my villainess is named Alani. Picture Liv Tyler’s Arwen gone bad, very bad! Weird to be reading about an Alani being blonde – and NICE!
Anyhow, I adored this book – enough to go back and grab Trace’s and Dare’s stories. Yeah, I know – backward as usual…
Jackson awakens with his boss’s sister in his arms – and no memory of the night before. Or the day before. Amnesia is never a good thing for a mercenary with too many secrets to hide, and too many enemies. He needs to find out who did it and why. The problem is, Alani wants to HELP. And he’d do anything to keep her safe.
The evil of human trafficking comes to the forefront, along with a villain who comes back from the dead. Lori Foster’s softness for rescuing stray cats plays an integral part, and a new couple – Arizona and Spencer – are introduced. (I can’t WAIT for that one to come out. Those two ROCK!)
It was amusing to watch Trace and Dare have to come to grips with Alani being, not just their baby sister, but a woman – a grown woman with needs that are more than a match for Jackson’s…enthusiasm. Jackson’s a mix of bad-boy and mush (recall stray cat reference?) and there’s NOTHING I like better than a bad ass with a code of honor and a (reluctantly) open mind. Sexy as hell!
You have GOT to join me in reading this series – but do it right and read them in the RIGHT order!
