Note: I am really loving this series by Lori Foster. Where the first one was more romance/story than action, this was more action based. This series has been easy to sit down and read quickly. Very Good!
What I Loved: I felt the pacing, action, and story was a great mix in Trace of Fever. The sizzle between Trace and Priss was evident from the beginning making their romance sizzling hot. I loved Jackson, he was so cocky and sure that you just know in Savor the Danger he is going to be knocked on his butt by Alaini. Chris and the addition of Matt to the storyline allowed moments of humor and fun that were well placed and very much needed. This was just a very well balanced book overall.
What I Liked: Ok, I am going to be in the minority here but I only liked Priss not really loved her. I do think she is perfect for Trace, who also just liked not loved. Together I think they are a great couple but their romance was second to me in this book. I was more interested in the storyline and seeing how it all came together.
Complaints: Priss–the name–it was horrid 🙂
Why I gave it a 4.25: I really enjoyed this book! It had just the right mix of action, suspense, romance, and story. It was never dull and I cared about how it would turn out.
