Synopsis. (Goodreads)

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: 4 out of 5 stars

A Perfect Storm is the fourth book in the Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor series by Lori Foster

Arizona Storm at the age of 17 was sold to traffickers by her own flesh and blood and after a harrowing ordeal managed to escape but not unscathed.

We learn bits about feisty Arizona, her past and her quest for vengeance in Book 3 Savor the Danger where she was rescued and protected by Jackson Savor as well as given a proper education. Arizona is tortured, unpredictable and ready to bolt when things get tough but there was also vulnerability about her and all she seemed to want was acceptance and to belong, I really felt for her as a character and the life she has had to live, it was heart wrenching to read her story but also nice seeing the progress she was making to reclaim her life.

Bounty Hunter Spencer Lark has spent 3 years grieving his murdered wife but since meeting Arizona has had a soft spot for her fragility and yearns to protect her, it didn’t hurt that he was also fiercely attracted to her not only for her stunning looks but also for her bravery but their age difference played on his mind (she is 21, he is 32) as did his need for no commitment.

As with each of the books in this series, we see the team tracking down those who deal in human trafficking and putting a stop to their illegal operations but this time we see Arizona put herself in direct danger by using herself as a lure to bring the bad guys out.

A Perfect Storm moved at a quick and even pace, with an interesting and enjoyable plot and characters you can’t help but love. I thoroughly enjoy the action scenes and the romance is so sweet and progressed at a realistic pace.

The characters from each of the other books in the series played an important role; Trace and Priss, Dare and Molly, Jackson and Alani as well as Chris are a great supporting cast and it’s always nice to read updates on each of them.

I really enjoy Lori Foster’s writing style and the sexy alpha men she writes about, she writes romance and action in a way that holds my attention and keeps me wanting more.

All in all, Lori Foster ticks all the boxes for me with A Perfect Storm - a wonderful sexy Alpha, a feisty yet loveable heroine, an interesting cast of secondary characters and a storyline that keeps me wanting more from this wonderful series.

Books in order:

1. When You Dare
2. Trace of Fever
3. Savor the Danger
4. The Perfect Storm
