Review: Dash of Peril by Lori Foster:

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 six feet four inches 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….

My Review:

Beginning Babble-I should begin by saying that Lori Foster is one of the few authors my mother and I completely agree on. We both love her and this series. I have been looking forward to Dash's story and I am thrilled to say that I loved it.


Heroine: Margo- She was beyond awesome. She was independent, strong and so kickbutt. She also had a vulnerable side and a tragic backstory. It's nice to see a heroine not descend into the Mary Sue territory in order to be a strong character. She simply was awesome.

Hero: Dash-He's a very strong, alpha hero but he knows when to have his quiet moments. Don't get me wrong, he's as alpha as you can get in a book like this but he has a gentleness about him.I like that a lot. I seem to be able to tolerate gentler traits in my alphas in contemporaries than historicals for some reason.

Chemistry: There is so much to love about this couple. I love how Margo and Dash bring out the gentleness and vulnerability in each other. I also love how it was Dash who already had a thing for Margo. So often it's the heroine with a crush and it was nice to see a reversal of that.

Chemistry Rating: 

Ending Babble: I love this series—perhaps not as much as my mother does because she's a complete fangirl for all of the books in this series—but it does go quite high on my list of favorite contemporary romances. Lori Foster is excellent at creating likable characters and magnetic chemistry all while keeping the suspense plot interesting.
