Review: Trace of Fever by Lori Foster

Posted June 23, 2011 by Felicia S in Uncategorized / 25 Comments


From Goodreads:  Undercover mercenary Trace Rivers loves the adrenaline rush of a well-planned mission. First he’ll earn the trust of corrupt businessman Murray Coburn, then gather the proof he needs to shut down the man’s dirty smuggling operation. It’s a perfect scheme—until Coburn’s long-lost daughter saunters in with her own deadly plan for revenge.

With a smile like an angel and fire in her eyes, Priscilla Patterson isn’t who she seems to be. But neither is the gorgeous bodyguard who ignites all her senses. Joining forces to plot Coburn’s downfall, Priss and Trace must fight the undeniable heat between them. For one wrong move, one lingering embrace, will expose them to the wrath of a merciless opponent….

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.

    I'm really enjoying this series too! Jackson's bathroom scene was pretty much the highlight of the book for me, I was dying. I can't wait for him and Alani, not too much longer to wait! And that book trailer is just delicious. *hits play button again*

    Well, my current fav is a tie between the guys starring in my two favorite books from May – Curran from Magic Slays and Dragos from Dragon Bound. Hmm, thinking about it, they've got a lot in common – both totally set on getting their own way, but willing to bend for the women they love.jen at delux dot com

    Not an entryOh I wasn't a total fan of Priss, but enjoyed her more than Dare's intended. She was more connected to her feelings and self. And at least even Priss didn't like her name. lol Great review!

  16. LSUReader

    I LOOOVE me some Lori Foster! Okay… Favorite alpha male EVER is probably Archeron from the Dark hunter series! (Smash Ash just posted about him the other day!)

  18. Missie

    What about that shower scene! I laugh just thinking about it! LOLI'm a dork.Yeah, Priss wasn't my favorite. I mean, 24 year old virgin, porn store owner? Umm.. okay. I really liked the storyline in this book much better. Coburn was so creepy.

  19. Christi Snow

    I haven't read this one yet…it keeps peeking at me from my TBR pile, but I think that I am going to save it for when Savor the Danger comes out. Loved your review! Don't include me in the drawing… smiles!
