Foster delivers the second novel in her edgy back-to-back trilogy--a smoldering tale featuring men who walk the edge of honor.
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….
After loving the first book in this series I could not wait to read more.
I really enjoyed the small glimpses here and there that we saw of Trace in the first book so I was prepared to fall in love with him. However, I found his character to be not quite what I was looking for. I believe that he was often rude to the leading lady of the story, Priss. I also did not like his overall attitude. I know he was trying to remain undercover and solve a case but he never acted any nicer towards Priss or understanding. Trace had to have it his way or no way at all. While I have often enjoyed leading male characters that are alpha I just felt Trace was a bad alpha, there were no redeeming qualities.
On top of not caring much for Trace I also found the heroine, Priss, to be rather annoying as well. I never really understood her motives in the story and I felt her character was very surface level. She just never really stood out to me.
The only reason I kept reading this book is because I highly enjoy all of the secondary/side characters. I loved seeing the couple from the first book as well as seeing a small glimpse of what might happen in the third book. If it were not for these parts of the story then I think I would have marked this book as did not finish, which is really tragic because I love Foster’s books.
