Book review: Dash of Peril (Love Undercover #4) by Lori Foster
Available March 24th
A no-nonsense female cop reluctantly teams up with the one man who makes her lose control in a deliciously sensual new novel from New York Times bestselling author Lori Foster...
To bring down a sleazy abduction ring, Lieutenant Margaret "Margo" Peterson has set herself up as bait. But recruiting Dashiel Riske as her unofficial partner is a whole other kind of danger. Dash is 6'4" of laid-back masculine charm, a man who loves life—and women—to the limit. Until Margo is threatened, and he reveals a dark side that may just match her own.
Beneath Margo's tough facade is a slow-burning sexiness that drives Dash crazy. The only way to finish this case is to work together side by side…skin to skin. And as their mission takes a lethal turn, he'll have to prove he's all the man she needs—in all the ways that matter.
This is the 4th and last book in the Love Undercover series by Lori Foster. Hate to see it come to the end but included in this book is a bit of a intro into her next series so that's something to be excited about. This is Dash's book the hotter that hot brother to Logan Riske from book one. We've seen him in every book but now he gets to step to the forefront and he makes his presence known in a big way. At 6'4" that's a whole lot of man. Confidence personified he meets his match with Lt. Margaret Peterson or Margo to him. She's used to being the boss until Dash shows her it's good to let that go now and then. Loved how Margo gets unwound in this book. She's a bit hard to like in the first three books so it was interesting to see how the author brings her out of that stiff and ice cold persona to a fire molten hot woman that matches Dash. There is of course some nasty criminal stuff involved in this book and Logan and Reese and Rowdy are back to help out and added is Cannon as well. Dash is of course part of this mix this time as much as Margo will let him in. For me this book has more to do with Margo than anything else. Margo had a crappy upbringing with a stern father and uncaring mother and a brother who was more like competition than big brother. Her whole life she was made to be tough and not show emotion to even know what love is. Dash has to show her he fits in her life and she can let go and he helps her learn to love. It's not a easy task but Dash is persistent and gets to the heart of Margo. I really enjoyed Margo's transformation and the insight into Dash as well. Cannon is also brought the the forefront a time or two in this book as he is the hero for of the first book in the next series by Lori Foster as she going back to her mixed martial arts. Overall a well rounded book and a great read!
