My Copy: Bought and Sent
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?
As the third book in this series I was expecting a lot. Maybe too much. I fell in love with both Dare and Trace in the first two books, and Jackson was an enigma I wanted to solve. I was worried that because of the fierce love I had for the first two books that Savor The Danger was built up in my head before I even cracked the first page.
Lori Foster did not disappoint.
Jackson knows only one thing. He’s been drugged. Although waking up with Alani naked beside him isn’t such a hardship. It’s no secret he’s wanted her for a long time. Now she’s here and he can’t remember a damned thing about how. Not knowing if this is about him or someone after her, Jackson decides keeping her close is the best option. Keeping her naked is an even better one.Something about Alani awakes his most protective side. Nothing will get in his way of her safety.
Alani can’t believe she let Jackson talk her into sleeping with him. Ok, well she can. I mean, look at him. Built like a tank and he claimed he only wanted her. Now he’s claiming a different story altogether. How can he not remember a night that left her so wanton and breathless that even the thought of it gets her hot again? With the bad guys on their tail, Alani is going to have to do something she swore she’d never do after her abduction at the hand of human traffickers….trust a man. Jackson will have to earn her trust if he also wants to earn her nights.
Savor The Danger was an awesome book. Jackson Savor was….well….yummy. I wanted to start at the top and work my way down to the tips of his toes. He was one part delicious cowboy and the other part scary mercenary for hire. I loved his attitude and ability to be gentle with Alani as well as take charge when plans had to be made. Not many guys can get away with saying “woman!” a lot. I generally find it hilariously funny if my husband tries to say it to me. But when Jackson said it…damn, I wanted to just sink into a puddle at his feet. It’s very alpha. Very much in charge.
Alani was a character I really liked throughout the series. I was happy she got her own book and even happier that the hero for her was Jackson. Poor Alani had been sheltered her entire life by big brother Trace. Out of concern for her he treated her as a child. Though she had made huge strides since her abduction in the first book, it was clear that the wounds weren’t totally healed. She was slightly skittish. It was also clear she had a thing for Jackson from the get go. In her learning to trust him, her inhibitions were also shed. Trace’s attitude upon finding out his sister was a woman shacking up with his friend (a friend completely like himself) was hilarious. I found myself snorting and also wistful that he was as protective of her as he was. Much to Alani’s dismay of course.
As with the previous two books, my only dawn fall is the build up of the villain. Maybe I’m sadistic. I guess I want the characters to suffer a bit. To be scared the one they love may die. In each book its built up and pulled taunt…and then…BAM, it’s over. The book is still great I guess I just felt like with a longer ending..it could be more. I mean more Jackson, Trace and Dare can only be a good thing in my eyes. 🙂 The situation with Arizona in this book is a great lead in to the next book. Spencer sounds like a man I could get down with.
I found the entire book to be completely engaging. I already miss this series and am eager for the next book out sometime next year. Why must the wait be so long?! *wails*
I give Savor The Danger by Lori Foster 4.50 stars
