Book Blurb: 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?
My Thoughts: Since I read the first two books in this series, I was itching to get to the end to read Alani and Jackson's story. They are those two characters who in the first two books are spinning circles around one another and as the reader you know they are hot for one another and you can't wait to read what happens between them. The romance and chemistry was there between these two. The mystery is slightly different in this book from the first two. There were many moments I found myself laughing at these two. And to give you a little thought to ponder, imagine Jackson being as built as a mercenary would be, and running out in the middle of the night, stark naked fighting a bad guy. I just cracked up a this and Lori did a fantastic job with describing such scenes as these.
If you have read the first two books, you will definitely want to get your hands on this one to complete the series and feel that tiny bit of pleasure knowing all is well for Dare, Trace, and Jackson. These men are now satisfied with the women they love.
