Review of When You Dare by Lori Foster

When You Dare
Lori Foster
448 pages

In Tijuana to rescue the sister of a friend, Dare Macintosh gets more than he bargained for when in a separate room he finds a badly beaten and drugged American woman, his honor won’t let him leave her but what’s he going to do with her.
Molly Alexander has learned the hard way to only rely on herself, when she finds herself kidnapped and abused she still won’t let her captors break her and then she’s rescued by Dare Macintosh and he’s appointed himself her personal protector which rubs the independent part of her the wrong way now with the attraction literally causing sparks between them the fireworks begin. If they can only keep their heads in the game, their hands off each other long enough to find out who’s behind the abduction they may make it out in one piece.

NY Times Best Selling Author Lori Foster hits her adrenalin addicted fans over the head with When You Dare, the first in her Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor series. It will be followed by Trace of Fever in May 2011 and Savor the Danger in June 2011, so have no fear there are more bigger than life and buffer than Greek God bad boys coming.
Her really imaginative plot for this one will make the hair stand up on the back of your neck as she takes her readers down the slippery slope of private security, so private that they’re practically ghosts. She brings us this tale with a dialogue that might surprise you with it’s at times almost modesty when compared to the characters, but have no fear you lovers of rough and tumble romance, she gives us just what we want too. And wait until you meet the characters, we’ll start with the co-stars some very good, some very bad and some in between but they all are so important to the story that she couldn’t have left even the least essential out or the tale would suffer. And that leaves us her hero Dare who is one of the most over the top and yet down to earth characters you’ll ever meet, in fact it’s his sincerity and sweetness that Ms. Foster gives him that makes him so endearing. Her heroine Molly is the most unsinkable character since, well, since the unsinkable Molly Brown, she faces her adversities head on and chin up and has that hard headed quality that makes her so real, while being incredibly vulnerable without being fragile. The romance, ah the romance is quite the adventure like rafting on rapids for the readers and while at first glance these two seem so different as you get further into the story you’ll see how those differences compliment each other and if any couple deserve their happy ever after it’s these two. The love scenes are hot enough and sensually sexy enough to scorch the paint off any surface but at the same time her readers will feel the vulnerability not only in the heroine but refreshingly also in the macho hero as well.

So if you like your heros on the darker side of good, your heroine with moxie out the wazoo and a story that will take you on a thrill ride that never stops, look no further. If you like love stories that are far from tame, here it is. If you like characters that carry the entire novel and then some, find it here. This is fiction to the ninth degree. Kudos to you Ms. Foster for another incredible journey thanks to your amazing storytelling talent.
