*sigh* Where do I even start? For those that don’t know me or my writing, I can be a sarcastic… er, you-know-what. Big time. I started to fall for Jackson, the hero of Savor the Danger, at the end of Trace of Fever. Within the first few pages of Savor I had completely fallen for him – like head over heels. Jackson is a smart ass but is very caring, taking in strays (of the feline and human variety), and like his, um, “co-workers” Dare and Trace, has a romantic streak a mile wide when he finds the right woman.
Savor opens with Jackson waking up, his hand on Alani Rivers backside, with no memory of what had happened the night before. He’s been pursuing her for quite some time now. To say that it bothers him that they’ve been intimate but that he can’t remember any of it is the understatement of the century. After Jackson yells at Alani while his head is over the toilet, she misunderstands what he’s trying to tell her and leaves.
Jackson comes to the conclusion that he was drugged, but by who? And why? How did Alani end up at his apartment? Is she in danger too? Can he convince Alaini that he was drugged and get a second chance with her? And just who is Arizona?
Savor had lots of suspense and lots of sweet, sarcastic moments that made me laugh and swoon. Also, it had a totally naked Jackson fighting someone else outside Alani’s house. The thought of a man fighting with his family jewels swinging around… excuse me for a moment…
I loved that we got to visit with Dare, Molly, Trace, Priscilla, and Chris. It was like a family reunion. With guns and strategic planning. Trace’s comments and glares in Jackson’s direction because of his sister Alani felt real, but at the same time, had me stitches.
For me, the two biggest suspenseful moments in the book were figuring out what human trafficking had to do with the plot line and Arizona. I was wrong with both of my guesses, but then again, I’m about 50/50 with my hunches on story lines. I really liked how Arizona and Spencer were set up for a book of their own. At least, that’s what I’m hoping for! And Lori, if you’re reading this, I do hope it’s a full book of their own and not something in an anthology. Pretty please?
I highly recommend Savor the Danger to anyone that has read the rest of the Men Who Walk The Edge of Honor series because it’s not complete without it! Also, I recommend it to anyone that likes Lori’s other books or who likes the romantic suspense genre. You won’t regret it!
Savor the Danger will be released on June 28th and is now available for pre-order at Amazon.
