A Perfect Storm (Hqn) [Mass Market Paperback]

I've finished "A Perfect Storm" the 4th book in her Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor series by Lori Foster.

Product Description

He never saw her coming …

Spencer Lark already knows too many secrets about Arizona Storm, including the nightmare she survived and her resulting trust issues. But in order to expose a smuggling ring — and continue avenging his own tragic past — the bounty hunter reluctantly agrees to make Arizona a decoy. Yet nothing has equipped him for her hypnotic blend of fragility and bravery, or for the protective instincts she stirs in him.

Arizona wants to reclaim her life, which means acting as bait to lure the enemy into a trap. Sure it's dangerous, especially with a partner as distractingly appealing as Spencer. But as their plan — and their chemistry — shifts into high gear, Arizona may discover there's an even greater risk in surrendering her heart to a hero ….

My Review:
Spencer Lark and Arizona Storm meet a month ago on a sting operation where he took her opportunity to seek revenge on the women who took her innocence away.  Arizona was kidnapped and sold to human traffickers and then tossed out a moving truck over the bridge.  She was lucky Jackson, Dare and Trace were following them and was able to rescue her.  Jackson gave her a new identity and only the core people knew who she was.  She wanted to find out about the organization that had taken her and bring them down.  She learned how to surveillance from them.

After the sting is over she follows Spencer to his home and watches him while he sleeps on her birthday.  When he awakens they have an argument and she asks him to help her to bring down a human trafficking ring.  He agrees in allowing herself to be the lure while he works with her friends to make sure she is keep safe.

I really liked how Spencer was caring and understanding about Arizona's fears about intimacy and relationships.  He didn't want to hurt her and he felt the age difference between them was too great (he's 32 and she just turned 21).  She's very naive and inexperienced with having relationships.  Due to her tragic past she's very wary and not comfortable around men but Spencer makes her feel cherished and safe.  She could be immature and juvenile at times.
