Review of “Getting Rowdy” and “Dash of Peril” – Lori Foster

SEPTEMBER 24, 2013
 
 

Charismatic bar owner Rowdy Yates isn’t the kind of man women say no to. So when he approaches waitress Avery Mullins, he fully expects to get her number. However, the elusive beauty has her reasons for keeping her distance—including a past that might come back to haunt them both.

Avery spends her nights working for tips… and trying to forget the secret Rowdy is determined to unearth. But when history threatens to repeat itself, Avery grows to rely on Rowdy’s protective presence. As the sparks between them ignite, she will be forced to choose between the security she’s finally found… and the passion she’s always wanted.

 
Review
 
How could anyone, after reading this story, not fall in love with Rowdy. He is sexy, sweet, and so protective of his loved ones. How he interacted with Marcus was tender and shows how what type of man he is and what kind of father he’ll be one day. 
 
I am so happy he found Avery, accepted her love, and gave his heart to her in return. Their future looks very bright. 
 
As for Pepper, she is still quite the pistol. She still is my favorite lady from the series…so far. I’ll let you know if my opinion changes once I read Dash and Margaret’s story because I have a feeling she is going to give to make Dash work hard for her affections. I can’t wait!!

To bring down a sleazy abduction ring, Lieutenant Margaret “Margo” Peterson has set herself up as bait. But recruiting Dashiel Riske as her unofficial partner is a whole other kind of danger. Dash is 6’4″ of laid-back masculine charm, a man who loves life—and women—to the limit. Until Margo is threatened, and he reveals a dark side that may just match her own…

Beneath Margo’s tough facade is a slow-burning sexiness that drives Dash crazy. The only way to finish this case is to work together side by side…skin to skin. And as their mission takes a lethal turn, he’ll have to prove he’s all the man she needs—in all the ways that matter…


Review

 

After reading “Getting Rowdy”, I was hoping Margo would’ve make Dash work hard for her affections. However, I changed my opinion rather quickly. If any woman needed to loosen up and allow someone to take care of her for a change, it was Margo. 
 
I loved how she was tough as nails at work but had a softer side on her own time. Perfect combo! 
 
And Dash, he was absolutely the right man for her. He understood her need to be dominant at work but submissive when off the clock. Their love scenes were scorchers. 
 
Now for those who have come to adore Cannon (like me), he will have his own book coming out this year. It’s part of a new series (Ultimate series).
 
Already in this story, Havoc and Simon met him at the rec center and extended a SBC contract. So stay tuned to his story. (Info on new series below)

Review of “Run the Risk” and “Bare It All” – Lori Foster

SEPTEMBER 25, 2012

When Detective Logan Riske goes undercover to find Pepper Yates, a potential link to his best friend’s unsolved murder, he vows to gain her cooperation by any means necessary. But the elusive beauty is more suspicious—and in far more danger—than he expected. And the last thing Logan needs is to start caring for her…

Pepper has spent years dodging the corrupt club owner who will stop at nothing to keep her silenced. She can trust no one, not even the handsome new “construction worker” who’s moved in next door. The heat between them is undeniable. But will surrendering to passion bring her the safety she so desires—or will her feelings for Logan draw them both into a killer’s crosshairs?



Review


I love a man who can see past unfashionable clothes/hair and see the beauty lying deep within a woman. Pepper did alter her appearance on purpose to stay off the radar, but Logan fell for her anyways. When she finally reverted to her “old self”, he was shocked but equally turned on by her. 
Their road to HEA wasn’t easy. Logan did use her, deceive her and arrested her brother but he did have his reasons. This is where Sue (fake identity) went from mouse to lioness (Pepper, real identity).
Wicked good read and I can’t wait to read Dash and Rowdy’s tales.

Review
No, you are not losing your mind. I did, in fact, review this book a few short days ago. However, it is technically in the Love Undercover series. I added it to the


Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor review collection for two reasons – 



1.) It was listed as the final book in the Men of Honor series due to Trace and Alice being in it. 
2.) I read it before purchasing the Love series. 

FYI: I am so glad I did!! 

For those who missed my rating of this story. I will refresh your memory on what I scored it and include the purchase links……

Review of “A Perfect Storm”, “What Chris Wants” and “Bare It All” – Lori Foster

APRIL 1, 2012

Spencer Lark already knows too many secrets about Arizona Storm, including the nightmare she survived and her resulting trust issues. But in order to expose a smuggling ring—and continue avenging his own tragic past—the bounty hunter reluctantly agrees to make Arizona a decoy. Yet nothing has equipped him for her hypnotic blend of fragility and bravery, or for the protective instincts she stirs in him.

Arizona wants to reclaim her life, which means acting as bait to lure the enemy into a trap. Sure it’s dangerous, especially with a partner as distractingly appealing as Spencer. But as their plan—and their chemistry—shifts into high gear, Arizona may discover there’s an even greater risk in surrendering her heart to a hero….

 
 
Review
I love stories featuring strong women and Lori blended Arizona’s strong and vulnerable moments beautifully. 
 
As for Spencer, it takes an equally strong man to swallow his dominant side and let a woman take charge – personally and professionally. 
 
And after reading this installment, you will see he thoroughly enjoyed giving up control in the bedroom. Out of the bedroom, he is definitely learning to adjust and for that, he has earned my respect as a character. 
 
For the villain, I think you’ll be surprised the twist Lori threw at us. He’s not just crazy….he’s white coat crazy.

When the going gets tough, the tough turn to Chris Chapey. As the right-hand man to a group of take-no-prisoners mercenaries, Chris can organize a top secret rescue mission with his eyes closed. But when it comes to his personal life, Chris is the one who needs a little help.

His problem: Matt Houser. Chris can’t deny his attraction to Matt, but Matt has no idea what Chris’s job really entails and how much it means to him. Matt challenges Chris to change his life—and make a place for him in it. Can Chris risk telling him the truth?

 
 
Review
 
I’ve been waiting for Chris and Matt to finally get together and my only regret, their story was WAY TOO SHORT! 
 
Now, it did have sweet moments but I wanted more sexy moments. They only shared a couple smooches. Compared to the love fests in the other stories, I felt a bit let down.

As the person responsible for taking down a brutal human trafficker, Alice Appleton fears retaliation at every turn. No one knows about her past, which is exactly how she prefers it…until the sexy cop next door comes knocking.

Detective Reese Bareden thinks he knows what makes women tick, but his ever-elusive neighbor keeps him guessing like no other. Is his goal to unmask Alice’s secrets? Or protect her from a dangerous new threat? One thing is certain: their chemistry is a time bomb waiting to explode. And with no one to trust but each other, Reese and Alice are soon drawn into a deadly maze of corruption, intrigue and desire-and into the line of fire….

 
Review

Yes folks, “Bare It All” marked the end of the Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor series (for now). At least, I hope it’s for now. I really want this series to continue. 

Why?

Well, the answer is simple. Lori mixed heat and suspense masterfully. It kept me engaged and had me flying through the pages. 

Alice from “Trace of Fever” is the main female star in this series.

FYI – Trace made quite an entrance in this story. Love him! 

Oh, I also adore Rowdy and Dash. No doubt about it – I am definitely buying the Love Undercover series ASAP!

Review of “Trace of Fever” and “Savor the Danger” – Lori Foster

MAY 31, 2011

Undercover mercenary Trace Rivers loves the adrenaline rush of a well-planned mission. First he’ll earn the trust of corrupt businessman Murray Coburn, then gather the proof he needs to shut down the man’s dirty smuggling operation. It’s a perfect scheme—until Coburn’s long-lost daughter saunters in with her own deadly plan for revenge.

With a smile like an angel and fire in her eyes, Priscilla Patterson isn’t who she seems to be. But neither is the gorgeous bodyguard who ignites all her senses. Joining forces to plot Coburn’s downfall, Priss and Trace must fight the undeniable heat between them. For one wrong move, one lingering embrace will expose them to the wrath of a merciless opponent….

Review
Human trafficking is despicable, deplorable, vulgar…. and the list goes on. 
I’m so happy Murray was stopped dead in his tracks – literally. I won’t say by whom though. I will say when I started the book I didn’t see this person capable of violence and I doubt you will either.
 Was I cryptic enough for you? 🙂
Trace and Priss make a fantastic team – in and out of bed. But I really loved their scenes together when they involved Chris and Matt. Those two men are something else in a fantastic way! 
And Jackson, yes I would’ve looked my fill if a sexy naked woman just so happened to be standing there for my viewing pleasure. We are only human. *winks*

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?




Review
Jackson is such a charming, sensual, sexy devil and I adore his character. However as for Alani, for some reason I can’t pinpoint yet, I didn’t care for her as much as I did Arizona. 
Now, she is a firecracker and I can’t wait to dive into her and Spencer’s story. I bet they are going to make a explosion couple in and out of the bedroom. (Stay tuned for my review of their story, “A Perfect Storm”.)

Review of “Ready, Set, Jett” and “When You Dare” – Lori Foster

Ready, Set, Jett! by Lori Foster:

A vacation from her no-strings romance with her sexy next-door-neighbor. That’s what Natalie Alexander needs to get her head—and heart—together. But her solo trip south turns into a disaster—until gorgeous Jett Sutter turns up with another challenge.


Review

I enjoyed book one in the Men Who Walk The Edge of Honor series. There was action/suspense in the 150+ pages but not the kind you’d expect. It all centered around a drive through a snowstorm. See…..different. 

 PS.
I didn’t read the others stories in this anthology yet because I wanted to solely focus on this series. However, if they are anything like Lori’s, I’m sure I’ll enjoy them as well.

The tougher they are, the harder they fall…


Professional mercenary Dare Macintosh lives by one hard and fast rule: business should never be personal. If a cause appeals to him and the price is right, he’ll take the mission he’s offered. But then the lovely Molly Alexander asks him to help her track down the men who’d had her kidnapped—and for the first time, Dare’s tempted to combine work with pleasure.

Fiercely independent, Molly vows to trust no one until she’s uncovered the truth. Could the enemy be her powerful, estranged father? The ex-fiancé who still holds a grudge? Or the not-so-shy fan of her bestselling novels? As the danger heats up around them, the only anchor Molly has is Dare himself. But what she feels for him just might be the most frightening thing of all…



Review


Trace was dead-on in the restaurant. Molly and Dare’s adventure would make a great movie. Their story had mystery, intrigue, romance, and suspense. I could absolutely see that on the Hallmark or Lifetime Channel. 🙂

Vacation time……

It’s that time of year again – sand, surf, and hours of nothingness. Sounds fantastic, right?


Yes for the next week, my only problem will be avoiding getting burnt by the sun. 


I can’t wait. I can almost taste the strawberry daiquiri. 


🙂


P.S.
When we return, I will be dedicating June to reviews of a couple series by Lori Foster – Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor and Love Undercover.


Plus every Wednesday, I will have a collection of sizzlin photos to help start your day off on a climatic note. *winks* 


See ya soon, my sweet peeps. 


<3 Kam and Dirk!
