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?
Not that I had any doubt what so ever that I would love Jackson and his story just as much as the previous two, but I believe this one was my absolute favorite! I mean seriously, can you just picture this beautiful, yet lethal cowboy lounging on your front step when you arrive home? My favorite part in this whole book was at that exact moment, as he appeared to be asleep and Alani starts to back away, he drawls "Don't make me chase you darlin'!" TOTAL SWOON WORTHY MOMENT!!! *fanning myself*
Ok, back to the review! This was the third(and I believe last, though I really hope not!)book in the Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor series. I have really enjoyed the books in this series but Jackson, IMO, is a special kind of delicious. He is sweet & kind but also a take charge Alpha, we all know how I love those....and I absolutely loved Alani, who has has a very rough go of it lately but didn't let any of that break her. She was tough and sweet and innocent at the same time. The perfect match for Jackson. Their chemistry made the pages smoke!!
We meet a couple of new characters in this book and I pray that they get their own book because even having just briefly met Spencer and Arizona I can feel their sizzle and I KNOW there is some good story there!!
