He never saw her coming…

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…

First Thought when Finished: I expected to be WOW’d by Arizona but really it was Spencer that stole that story!

What I Loved: Spencer! I wasn’t sure what I would think about him when the story started. He, above anyone else, pointed out his flaws, why he wouldn’t be good for Arizona, and several other reasons why a girl should find him a good man but a damaged one. Yet, it was because of all of that and his treatment of Arizona that he became the most compelling character in this story. Arizona had a distinct way of making him prove through actions what kind of man he truly was! It was his treatment of Arizona and his neighbor that really sold his “good man” status to me. Needless to say I loved the man!

What I Liked: Arizona! I was already intrigued by her at the end of Jackson’s story. She had a horrific past and the more we found out about it in this book, the more I wonder how the poor gal was functioning at all. Instead, while she did have her flaws, she was fighting to live and fighting to prevent people from being used the way she was. I admired Arizona in so many ways. She had a shaky road but managed to work her way through it. While I didn’t find her as intriguing as Spencer, I did find her compelling.

What was a little lacking: Not enough of the other wives even though we saw the Boys. Since this was the last in the series I wanted a little more time with them.

Final Thought: I really loved the Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor series. It was my first time reading Lori Foster but it won’t be my last!

    I haven't read any of Lori Foster's work yet, either but I've seen them around a lot and I wondered if they were any good.  Thanks for taking care of that for me!!!  I'll definitely add this series to my TBR (maybe a good library book?)

    I loved Spencer too! I think Arizona was my fave heroine of the series tho. The men in this series do outshine the women. 😀 Glad you enjoyed it too!

    Ahhhhh! So excited for this book! I adore this series and I've been extremely excited for Spencer and Arizona since their appearance in the last book. I think Spencer and I are going to get a long just fine:)

    Whenever I see the words Bounty Hunter, I always think of Dog the Bounty Hunter, unfortunately setting a stereotype.  This novel sounds so much better than a couple of drug busts, and your description of Spencer is fantastic.  Great review!
