He never saw her coming…

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…
My Thoughts:

Just need a few moments to fan myself after reading this book. Lori Foster has a way creating these Alpha Men that just melts me away. Spencer is that and more, the big strong man who suffered a devastating loss, he is hesitant to open his heart again. Our heroine, Arizona, she has had a wicked terrible past. Ms. Foster gives us just enough details that we can figure it out what horrific events Arizona had to deal with. She is a survivor and wants to rid the world of human traffickers.  What started as a way to protect and watch over Arizona, Spencer slowly opens his heart to allow Arizona to slip in and chip away at the hard barrier he has placed around it. Arizona, also toys with the fact that she can be loved and she can love others. It was a beautiful moving story, bringing back characters from the previous books in the series.  Ms. Foster did a wonderful job building the main characters. This is the fourth in the series, for me having read the previous books provided enough insight for this story.  Bravo to Ms. Foster for tackling a difficult subject by bringing attention to the crime of human trafficking; awareness is the first step to eradicating modern slavery! Well Done!!

I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review.


My Rating:
                    
The Author:

The only thing diminutive about bestselling novelist Lori Foster is her size. At 5’3,” she’s not exactly tiny, but the only family members she towers over these days are her toddler grandson and Tootsie, their Chihuahua, and their cats. Everything else she does is supersized, from her commitment to having her work published and the standards she has set for her writing, to her philanthropy, love of family and her joy in helping others. Even her characters are larger-than-life—alpha men and women who break boundaries and bring passion to everything they do.

Lori’s mighty imposing herself, undoubtedly possessed of more than her share of alpha traits and energy. She never gave up on her desire to see her work in print, completing ten novels before her first book, Impetuous, was sold and then published in 1996. She’s maintained a hectic pace, often writing six or more novels a year. She first hit national bestseller lists with Jamie in 2005. Now,her novels,and anthologies featuring her work, have claimed a combined 115 weeks on The New York Times, USA Today and Publishers Weekly bestseller lists. Hard to Handle was number two on the New York Times’ list. She’s been honored with the RT Book Reviews Career Achievement Award for both Contemporary Romance and Series Romantic Fantasy...more
