Fun book to read,
This review is from: Dash of Peril (Love Undercover) (Mass Market Paperback)
Dash of Peril is the fourth instalment of the Love Undercover series by this established author and is as sexy and enthralling as ever. These books are contemporary romance suspense that feature characters in Law Enforcement and those they love. Theres a fine line sometimes between upholding the law and breaking it and these stories bring light to issues that are sometimes hidden. A fabulous way to spend a few hours and although the books are connected happily all are easily read as standalone .
Margo is a no nonsense police Lieutenant working hard in a traditional mans world. She's good at her job and totally committed so when women start getting abducted and cruelly abused in porn movies she's not about to sit back and do nothing. Problem is she needs backup and Dash the annoyingly gorgeous brother of one of her detectives seems only too happy to help. He's a civilian so Margo really doesn't want to involve him but sometimes what Margo wants and what Margo needs are not the same thing!
Dash is following Margo home one night when she's viciously attacked. Left without the ability to look after herself the fiercely independent Margo has to agree to let Dash come home with her until it's certain she's not suffering any lasting damage. Dash has long wanted the opportunity to get closer to Margo and he's not about to let it slip through his fingers. Margo may be vulnerable but it's obvious she does have feelings for Dash. What starts out as an innocent deed pretty soon escalates to a lesson in passion. Margo is a well waiting to be tapped and Dash feels he's just the man for that job but danger is still stalking the feisty Lieutenant and it looks like Dash and Margo's fledgling relationship is truly in peril.
I first discovered Ms Fosters work several years ago and she's one of the most consistent authors I have ever found. Her books are filled with believable characters , strong story lines and hot encounters! This book did not disappoint and the hard as nails heroine Margo was just such a revelation. It's hard to always be in charge and I loved that the hero Dash could see her innermost needs. He didn't just see them he attended to them and it's a delicious slow burn that drives the passion within this story. Dash is an alpha male but he's also sensitive and Margo clearly needed to just let go of control sometimes.
This isn't just about romance though as there is a very real storyline running through this book. Prostituition and sex trafficking is a genuine issue facing Law enforcement and although this is a work of romantic fiction I applaud the author for bringing what's almost a taboo subject into the light. The villains here may be a little one dimensional but this is meant to be an escapist book for readers to while away a few hours with and not a serious tome. So this book is probably one of my favourites from this author and I really enjoyed spending time with the hot Dash and strong Margo. A great fast moving plot that from the start just drags the reader in . There's action as well as passion and well written characters to care about . Supporting characters are interesting as well and I suspect one in particular (Cannon) may get his own book. It was a really fun book to read and I'm so looking forward to more from Ms Foster. Recommended .
