Savor the Danger by Lori Foster

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?

I know I've said good things about every book in this series, so you're probably not going to trust my opinion quite as much on this one, but I want to say that I loved this book. By far my favorite of the series, it's fantastic by itself and makes me excited for what's coming next. 

I think it's in this book that Foster really writes the perfect combination of softness and strength in Alani. She's supposed to be a haven for Jackson but she isn't only that. She's smart and engaging on her own, wants to be an equal partner - and she's not annoying while she does any of it, which I have to say is both a relief and a joy.

I'm happy to say that Jackson is just as great, with enough wit and hidden depths to make him a great Alpha male hero. He's still kicking butt and taking names, but reading about things from his point of view while he works out his own feelings for Alani while also trying to get her to admit hers just makes the romance even more perfect. Plus he is just HOTT and while the actual number of sex scenes is small, each one is done so that is enhances the story and makes their romance even more believable.

I wish I could say skip straight to this one and enjoy the heck out of it, lol, but I think to really love it the way I do you'd need the back story from the first two. Highly recommended! 

Overall Feeling -Thumbs up.
