Savor the Danger by Lori Foster

Now this is what I’m talkin’ about! 

Savor the Danger is the third book in the Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor series, and everything I love in my Romantic Suspense reads! Hot, hot, hot heroes, and sexy, strong, intelligent heroines who do everything in their power to support the man they love – or the man they lust after, as the case may be. And did I mention hot heroes?

This story continues with our hero(es) working to bring down those scum of the earth men and women who make their living off of the misery of others, by buying and selling human beings. Those are among the worse kinds of people I can think of, and knowing that this really happens outside the pages of books makes me sick. There’s a special place in hell for ‘people’ –  and I use the word lightly – who think they have the right to do things like this. And while it could make for a very dark read, Ms. Foster handles this issue in a way that gets the point across without making it uncomfortable. Bravo!

In this story, Jackson has had the hots for Alani for awhile, but kept his distance because, well, for one thing, she was aloof and didn’t much give him the time of day. But most importantly, I think, was that he wanted to give her some time to recuperate from the kidnapping we read about in book one, When You Dare. But when he wakes up to find Alani in bed with him, and has absolutely no recollection of how she got there, they’ve got no choice but to work together and find out who drugged Jackson and why.

Jackson is all the things I love in an Alpha hero. He’s physically able to take out the bad guys in one scene and burn up the sheets – figuratively speaking, of course – in the next. He’s passionate, determined, and incredibly sexy. And, he likes to take time to “talk” things through, if you know what I mean. Usually, the sex-just-for-the-sake-of-getting-off in a story doesn’t do anything for me, but Jackson made it work big time, because honestly? yeah, he wanted Alani in his bed as desperately as she wanted to be there, and in truth it wasn’t just about the sex for either of them.

Going in to Savor the Danger I worried that I’d find more of the TSTL (not the brightest bulb in the box) heroines that I found in Molly and Priss, but thankfully, that wasn’t the case. Alani is smart, level headed, kind, generous and incredibly supportive of her man. She’s had about a year to recover from her abduction by human traffickers, and she has some residual PTSD moments, but overall she was just wonderful, and exactly the kind of woman I’d want for a man like Jackson Savor.

The bottom line – I loved this book and can’t wait for the next installment!
