What Chris Wants

What Chris WantsChris was the go to guy when it came to running the operation but with his personal life he was at a loss. He was especially confused when he wanted Matt but he knew that he could not share what he does for a living.

What Chris Wants is the last story to the series Edge of Honor by Lori Foster. This story was a novella and I had been looking forward to this story. I have to say it wasn’t my favorite. I think there was promise of something there but Lori Foster did not deliver on this one.

I found that the characters were not well developed. I wanted more from them, for them to have a relationship but it definitely didn’t play out that way.

One thing I liked was that Foster lets the reader know that the other couples from the books were all happy in their relationships.

Ready, Set, Jett

Ready, Set, JettNatalie loved having friends with benefits with her neighbor but soon it will change. Jett will start to want more than just sex. Natalie is not sure she wants that but she didn’t want Jett out of her life.

Ready, Set, Jett is the prologue in the series Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor by Lori Foster. This was a quick and fun story. It was less on the danger side than the other books in the series. Though there was some danger that was happening, the characters just didn’t know it was going on.

Natalie’s character did not want to get close to anyone. She had trust issues and she kept her secrets close to her. She liked Jett because it was an easy relationship, she was just using Jett for sex. I liked that Natalie was confident to do that. Though I was also happy that Natalie was discovering that she had true feelings for Jett. With Jett’s character he was a man on a mission. He wanted Natalie, but he wanted her more than friends with benefits. I liked that Jett was a take charge kind of man but he was also generous.

So I have read the rest of the series with the exception of the last book which is a novella. I will be reading that next.

Perfect Storm

Liking the last three book of the series Edge of Honor I figured I would like A Perfect Storm.

Arizona Storm has had a tough life, one she wants to be able to handle. Her way is to find trouble and stop it but she needs Spencer’s help. She is wary of him as she does feel things when she looks at him, but she is not ready to let him in. Of course curiosity sets in and Arizona will take the plunge while they will be in the midst of danger.

Spencer Lark a dangerous bounty hunter has tangled before with Arizona and finds himself agreeing to help her once again. He doesn’t like that she is endangering herself but knows that she would do it without his help. Having her close puts Spencer in a spell as every time he sees her he wants her. He holds back to that possibility until neither can’t take it anymore.

After I read the book I found myself loving the characters that Lori Foster created. I often love reading her books. This series however has characters that are more complex and in the fourth book I could not put it down.

I loved the story of Arizona and how grown up/naive she really was. She was only twenty one but with the experience of someone twice her age. You want her to find happiness with Spencer but also peace. I liked how Foster built Arizona’s character up through the entire book as there was no dull moment.

Spencer was something else. In all Foster’s books there is the strong man, the man who would do anything to protect the damsel in distress. Its the oldest story but Spencer will be challenged as Arizona is not a weeping willow. She will take the punches that is given to her. Spencer though is also withdrawn from real connection but of course Foster will make sure that is drawn out in the book.

The villain was obvious but there is a twist at the end that was not necessarily seen and surprised me. I liked that Foster had given that twist on the bad guy as it gave more intrigue and mystery.

Now finishing the fourth book I have to wonder if their will be another book from Foster which of course I hope that there is. Perhaps with Quin who will grow up and help in his own way?

Savor The Danger

Savor The Danger is the third book to Lori Foster’s series Edge of Honor.

Alani Rivers knows terror and never wants to feel that again or trust men again but one weasels himself into her life. Jackson Savor is a sex minded individual who only thinks that when Alani is around and is flattered, she finally has enough and gives in. The only problem now is that Jackson doesn’t remember their night when they wake up together. Alani is hurt and confused but gets over it and needs to find out what has happened to Jackson.

Jackson Savor waited for the day that Alani would give in. Finally it has come and he has no memory. It is disturbing he has no memory of the night. He must bring in Trace and Dare to have them help with his memory, he will also use Alani to give him details that only make her blush hotter. Jackson knows getting back into bed with Alani will be a pleasure for him.

Waking up in bed and no memory of the night was priceless. I loved how Foster starts off the book as there is humor and wit which goes along with Jackson’s character. I also loved how he was just a very sex minded man but only when it came to Alani.

The character of Alani was perfect. She became stronger and gave into the side she had been hiding. I liked how she was strong when standing up to her brother, it shows she has backbone and not to be messed with.

The villain wasn’t expected but an interesting twist. Never underestimate characters as they usually surprise you. There are two new characters also coming in Spencer and Arizona. Finishing up the book I looked up the series and was happy to see Foster is not done with the series and Arizona will have her chance as the main character along with Spencer. Can’t wait for their story. Hopefully their’s wouldn’t be the last in the Edge of Honor series.

Trace of Fever

As with the first story of the series Lori Foster gets the action going quickly in Trace of Fever with heated characters and a very dangerous situation. Trace will bring in the action with his co-star Priss but it wouldn’t be an easy road.

Trace Rivers hates all kinds of monsters and Murray Coburn is one of the best but why is Trace working with him? Trace is undercover as a bodyguard under the name Trace Miller. He has to act the part which makes him sick but he needs this monster put away for his sister and anyone like her. Trace was in the mist of his mission but didn’t expect Coburn’s daughter.

Priscilla “Priss” Patterson has one thing on her mind and that is revenge. Stepping into Coburn’s hell is not easy but in order to move on she has to end this monster. Priss thought it would be easy but the unruly bodyguard was not what she expected. He ignited everything in her body but she couldn’t stray from her mission even though Trace makes it very difficult.

From everything that happened with Trace and Priss it made you melt as Foster creates an erotic romance which will have you wanting more. It was frustrating at times that you wanted to not hate Trace but very much thought he was in the wrong with some of his actions he does. Then you have to remember he is playing a part. His character is flawed but fantastic at the same time with how he is able to protect his sister and friends. I appreciated that Trace did trust Priss enough to let his guard down some.

I liked also how Foster created Priss to be multidimensional. She was a great character who is in a situation way out of control. Her story was compelling with her mom and you wanted her to get her revenge no matter the cost.

The character Murray and Helena were frightening and Foster created them so you had no choice but to despise them. The drug which is created is an interesting addition and I liked how Foster was able to turn the tables on Helena.

Finishing up the book I quickly knew I had to pick up the next one with Jackson and Alani. I couldn’t wait to read what situation they were going to be put in. Overall Edge of Honor series is jump off the seat steamy and you only want more from Foster.

When You Dare

Wow! That is the only word for the first book of the series Edge of Honor. Lori Foster starts with a bang with When You Dare and will not stop until you finish the book. The summary of the book got my interest but it wasn’t pulling me to read it like so many of Foster’s books but once you start there is no stopping. I kept reading in one sitting from the first page to the very last.

Dare Macintosh is a professional mercenary and is on a mission to find his best friends sister who has been taken. Dare accomplishes his mission but is now strapped with another complication. He picks up Molly who was there with Alani but Molly did not fit the right image to human trafficking. Dare knew she would not survive so he took her as it was the right thing to do. But Dare has questions and only this woman would be able to tell him.

Molly Alexander was taken. Her body hurt, her mind not clear. She still had no idea why all she knew was she was safe with this man named Dare. Molly knew the one thing she had to do and that was to find out who would kidnap her. As a writer she had a few enemies but none she knew that would go to this extreme. Molly will put her trust into Dare as they faced her attackers and the attraction which sizzled between them.

As I read the book I was in awe of how much I really liked the story. The characters were hard edged, complicated and multidimensional. The plot as well had many quirks that made you smile and fantastic twists that you could see happening but you get so wrapped up into the story you only concentrated on the subject at hand.

Dare, wow. He was fantastic. I loved his sexual tension, his macho tendencies and his love for his dogs and friends. Chris who was a friend was delightful. He was quirky and just right. As with Molly she was incredible with her strength through the entire plot. As the reader you cheered her on.

The villain was not clear or at least suspected but Foster did a good job at giving subtle hints and wrong misdirection. Along with multiple characters who could be the bad guy. And the villain was obsessed in a quiet way which gave plot mystery and a really good betrayal.

I was interested to know if Foster would give Alani her own story and happily I found out she will in the third book. This looks to be like a series which will hopefully continue with many more but no one knows except the author. Pick up and enjoy When You Dare and once you are done get ready for the second book with Trace in Trace of Fever.
