He never saw her coming…Mmmmm... another smexy man in this series. A series that doesn't really have to be read in order, but trust me... you don't want to miss one of these smexy, caring, alpha, hot (oh insert more smexy pronouns here) men! All of the previous were introduced into my harem (Proof: Dare, Trace, and Jackson) and Spenser Lark also has a spot saved for him.
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…
Now, even though I was happy to be introduced to Spencer, I have to admit, the one I really wanted to meet was Arizona. She was a curiosity to me. She survived such horrific circumstances and yet was strong and still wanted to help as many people as possible. Yes, this is a woman I wanted to know.
We find that both characters have some personal blocks in their past that wasn't allowing them to live a full life. In Spencer's case it was a wife that he dearly loved, but could not save. Now he has met the one woman who refuses to be saved and constantly puts herself in danger to save others. Together they learn to open up to each other. What I loved was not the healing that Arizona had by being with Spencer but the healing that Spencer found with Arizona. It was unexpected to him and that made it just feel more true.
I give this book 4 1/2 stars. I throughly enjoyed both characters and this was a wonderful addition to this series. I recommend all these books for anyone who loves a action filled romance.
I received this eARC from Harlequin and NetGalley. No compensation for my review was given.
