The Delight

Dash is the ultimate hero. Strong, alpha, caring and patient. He doesn’t take advantage of the situation, can draw out the sexual tension until you orgasm just from looking at him. Margo has caught the right man for herself. She’s one lucky woman.

Dash of Peril by Lori Foster is the fourth installment in the Love Undercover series that just keeps getting better and better with each new book. The characters aren’t new and in fact we have known them since the first book. Dash the younger brother of Logan (book #1). Logan’s boss is Margaret as well as Reese’s boss (book #2). Logan is also married to Pepper, who is the little sister of Rowdy (book #3). Confused yet? Well, all you really need to know is Dash is the hero who has been lusting for Margaret, or Margo, since book #1. While you have been led to believe there might be something there, in reality these two have been fighting it.

Margaret is an uptight police lieutenant who walks the line of justice. Always in control, straight-forward and non-personal. But she also revels in her feminine side when not working. Losing control and feeling like a woman isn’t something she feels anyone should know or they might lose respect. Undercover to catch sexual predators, she is now on a hit list…along with Dash since he rescued her from the first attempt.

Dash is a pretty simple guy in comparison. He is a dominant male, well off, but still works when needed in his construction and design company. Not weak and very much not willing to give up on Margo (his name for her).  When asked for one word to describe Margo, he calls her fuckable. And I don’t mean that in a bad way. He says it with great passion and depth.

This story kept me sitting on the edge of my seat! He teases Margo, prolongs the pleasure … tortures the reader! He isn’t a wham-bam thank you mam kind of guy. He prolongs the teasing, touching, sucking, licking, fingering…you name it. Weaving a web of sensual tension that leaves you ready to jump his bone if he doesn’t give it to Margo soon! I agreed with her a lot and wanted to hurry him up at times when I didn’t think I could take it any more.

The suspense adds to the sexual tension. The ins an outs of finding the bad guys before they hurt another woman. Throw in the secondary character Cannon, oh sweet Cannon. Now there is one story I can’t wait to hear, but his will be the start of a new series. The stand-by favorites are still there: Rowdy (mine, mine), Avery, Logan, Pepper, Reese and Alice. Each character adds to the story and I love Getting Rowdy. I wasn’t sure I could love anyone after Rowdy, but Dash stole my heart again.

I will say it again ::wink:: Dash can eat crackers in my bed any day of the week…oh wait, I am married to a Dash! But I am not cop, sorry, but I can be brassy too.

Wrapped in a sensual come hether cover, Dash of Peril delivers on all levels of the senses.

I tried very hard not to give away any spoilers! But it was probably one of my favorites from this series…hard to decide since I loved Getty Rowdy so much.

Dash sounds great. I haven’t read Lori Foster yet. I like the idea of the romantic suspense elements.

I have only read a handful of Lori Foster, but what I have read has always been good. Lori has a Reader & Author Get Together in Ohio in June. I signed up to go this year since it was only $50. Just don’t know if I will be back from vacation in time to attend. It’s only 3.5 hours away and I have only heard good things about this conference.

I’ve heard good things about that conference too. I hope you get to go.
