Book review: When you Dare by author Lori Foster

When you Dare is is the first book in a brand new series from author Lori Foster. The new series is called" The Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor". As far as i can see this series will have 3 book in it. The first being "When you Dare" set to release April 26th. I started reading Lori Foster several months back with a little book called. Impetuous! A shorter book but it gave me a chance to try this author out and see if i liked her writing. I did of course and have read many of her books since.  Sometimes you like a authors writing so much your afraid they'll mess it up by putting out a book you won't like. Especially if you build it up in your head. lol Below is the blurb from "When you Dare" Read that and then we'll talk.

The tougher they are, the harder they fall…

Professional mercenary Dare Macintosh lives by one hard and fast rule: business should never be personal. If a cause appeals to him and the price is right, he'll take the mission he's offered. But then the lovely Molly Alexander asks him to help her track down the men who'd had her kidnapped—and for the first time, Dare's tempted to combine work with pleasure.

Fiercely independent, Molly vows to trust no one until she's uncovered the truth. Could the enemy be her powerful, estranged father? The ex-fiancé who still holds a grudge? Or the not-so-shy fan of her bestselling novels? As the danger heats up around them, the only anchor Molly has is Dare himself. But what she feels for him just might be the most frightening thing of all…

First of all don't you love the play in the name with the title? Brilliant if you ask me.I was not disappointed in the least by this book. It was everything i had hoped for and more. You get a small peak at Trace, Dare's good friend in this book who has his own book coming up next with "Trace of Fever". Again with the name play. This starts out with Dare having just saved Trace's sister from being sold into the sex slave industry in Mexico. When he freed Trace's sister there was another young American women there that he brought along with him back across the border, Molly. You get to meet Molly's sister Natalie in the Lori Foster Novella book "The Guy Next Door" and she makes an appearance in this book as well to tie the books together. Molly can't figure out what her abductors wanted from her or why they abducted her. Dare finds himself drawn to her and her courage and spirit and decides he's going to find out what's going on and who is threatening her. Dare is a take charge kind of guy but he is also soft and loving. I love how Lori Foster portrays his best friend and assistant Chris who is gay in a comfortable relationship. She makes it seem effortless and i loved that. The characters are wonderfully written and you are kept guessing who the bad guy really is right to the end. Can't wait for the next book in the series  You can read a excerpt of the first two book by clicking here Lori Foster. You can see all the other books from Lori Foster as well and see what other goodies she offers on her website. Lori Foster can be found on twitter and Facebook as well. I give "When you Dare" 5 out of 5 Modokker Book Pick Stars. This one was hard to lay down for breaks.
