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

A Perfect Storm is the fourth book in the Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor series and, if you’ve read the first three books, you know the nightmare that Arizona Storm survived. Well, she’s back with a vengeance and she’s going to make sure that no one else has to live through the hell that she did.

Spencer Lark knows what Arizona suffered at the hands of the human traffickers, and so despite his attraction to her, he keeps her at arm’s length… until she shows up at his place looking for help taking


4.5 Stars.

Good Gawd, was there anything I didn't like about this book? Nope, not really.
Lori Foster has met all my high expectations for this book.

I loved Spencer and Arizona so much. I didn't expect to love a heroine as much as I did. She totally kicked ass and took names. Seriously awesome. Oh, and it was sex-ay. Heh.

More in depth review to come as the publication date draws nearer!

UPDATE... Yet again

Wow, I was going to give this book 3 stars, thought about it and figured no, 2 stars, thought about it some more and realized it was a terrible book...1star. Lori Foster made the female character in this story so pathetic and annoying its a wonder if she even likes her own gender. Not only is Arizona Storm a damaged misfit, she acts like a cross between a rebellious teenage daughter and a bratty little kid, no way in hell would she attract an older male lead character like Spencer...oh, except f

We first met Arizona and Spencer back in Savor the Danger. Arizona had been sold to human traffickers as a sex slave by her father and, when she attempted to escape, her ‘owners’ recaptured her, bound her hands and threw her into a stormy river to drown as a lesson to the rest of the slaves. Jackson, having been tracking them, saw this and rescued her. Arizona turned vigilante which is how she met Spencer – he is a bounty hunter and he was tracking the same traffickers.

This is a re-read for a book I added when I first joined GR but never reviewed. Waaay back in high school :/ And I'm so bummed I didn't love as much as I did before :(

Arizona is still a total bad ass and I love her character. Like Jackson and the rest of the gang, I felt for what she went through and yeah, it would be tough to find a way to help her. The struggle they go through to make Arizona feel loved and prove she belongs to their make-shift family was a really sweet part of the book. I lo
Para ser el último libro de la saga Mercenarios de Lori Foster, que recomiendo mucho, podría haber sido mejor. De todas maneras, se trata de una historia entretenida y de fácil lectura.

Favorite Quote: “You are so impressive in so many ways.”

He didn’t want her under some misplaced delusion that he was more than himself, more than a hardworking guy, trying to do the right thing whenever he could. Especially with her. “I’m just a man.”

“Not even close.”

I absolutely loved this book. It grabbed me round the throat from the very first page and dragged me kicking and screaming to the very last page. Arizona fascinated me when she appeared in Savor the Danger and Spencer even then seem like the perfect man for her. I really liked that Arizona was a tough cookie and didn't let anyone or thing stand in her way. It really pulled on my heart strings the way she saw herself and I liked that Spencer was patient in trying to get her to see her value. But ...more
Hot, edgy and surprisingly good. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
You can read my thoughts in English below.

Esta historia es muy desagradable. No especialmente por el tema que trata, que también, sino por cómo lo trata. La autora no termina de entender, por más que lo intente, que las mujeres no somos seres indefensos ni tenemos que avergonzarnos de nuestra sexualidad. Después de tener que soportar cómo convierte a su heroína en un trozo de carne de primera rozando la perfección física pero dotándola de estupidez y tozudez (creo que lo confunde con valentía y

I wish LF had continued to write this series. I would have enjoyed seeing all the guys working together and how their personal lives expanded. I liked all leading characters in this series. Arizona was hard to warm up to, but then I figured who wouldn't be the way she was after all she went thru. I was glad to see her finally find herself. Sadly human trafficking is not a made up story. It is all too real. I really enjoyed this series.

Arizona Storm is a bit of a conundrum to Bounty Hunter, Spencer Lark. She is young, beautiful and determined to play vigilante. After her near death experience where human traffickers threw her off a bridge into water where they fully expected her to drown, Arizona was saved by Jackson Savor. Jackson quickly claimed Arizona as a sister of sorts and attempts to make up for the awful life she had up to her near-drowning. Arizona tries to acclimate herself to Jackson and his cohorts, but after all

TENSION!! Of the sexy kind. That’s what this book was. I loved it.

I just couldn’t get enough of Spencer Lark. I thought Trace (from Trace of Fever) would forever be my favorite in this series, but Spencer kind of knocked him off the pedestal! Sorry, Trace! I still love you…second. Trace of Fever is still my favorite BOOK in the series though.

I loved Spencer’s compassion, his loyalty, his competence. I loved
Definitely 4 stars

Well, 'A Perfect Storm' doesn't get any points for original title, but it sure does deliver a great story (not too mention a rowr-a-licious cover... hot guy in a white wet T-shirt?? Definite rowr-factor going on).

The 'Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor' series started off very promising. The prequel, 'Ready, Set, Jett' was hot and sweet and 'When You Dare' was hot, sweet, and gritty with a totally swoon-worthy hero - and I've reread it several times. Sadly, however, the following

Another wonderfully yummy Alpha hero from Lori Foster! I can't thank her enough!

For anyone who has read any of my previous reviews on this wonderful series that showcase the Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor know how much I absolutely love these delicious Alpha Male good guys!

We briefly met both Spencer and Arizona in the previous book and I was incredibly happy to hear that Ms. Foster was planning to give them a story of their own, and what a story it was! Spencer Lark is not officially a member
Spencer and Arizona? Just…WOW. They have such insane chemistry, I couldn’t put it down. For real. I read it straight through, in a single day.

Arizona is sharp, feisty, loyal. But she doesn’t understand relationships – both friendly and romantic. And it was wonderful seeing how all of her friends support her, give her the space she needs, and constantly draw her back in.

Spencer is in love with her. But he won’t admit it’s love, because the woman he loved is dead. But he is drawn to her, on a ph

A Perfect Storm es el cuarto libro de la saga Mercenarios de Lori Foster y tiene como protagonistas a Spencer y Arizona, personajes que conocemos brevemente en el tercer libro, Savor The Danger.
Desde que Spencer aparecio en el libro anterior me causo mucha curiosidad, principalmente porque era cazarecompensas, ademas cuando descubri que su pareja seria Arizona casi salto de la emocion.

When I need a guaranteed good read Lori Foster is one of my go to authors and she so did it again with A Perfect Storm. Oh I had a good time as Arizona and Spencer's paths, once again, cross and they end up working together--no matter the dangers--to expose a human smuggling ring. Something they both desperately need before they can move on with their lives. It was an exciting ride and one that had me easily falling for b

This latest book in the series is to me more of a character driven story than action and suspense. Now I am not saying there is anything wrong with that because I think it was the best way to write Arizona's story. I think Ms Foster did an outstanding job with Arizona and Spencer's story.

Arizona was sold by her father to a human trafficking ring. She endured many horrors during this time and after months managed to escape only to be caught again and thrown off a bridge to die. She was saved by

“A Perfect Storm” by Lori Foster is the latest in her enjoyable series about the mercenaries (Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor) who have taken on those who perpetrate the heinous crimes of sex trafficking. Arizona is a young woman who was rescued from one such horrible situation by Jackson Savor but has never really had a normal life.

I've been waiting for this book to come out since the character of Arizona Storm was introduced. I was really excited to read it and also a little nervous that she would get the book that she deserved. I should be ashamed of myself for not having more faith in Foster's abilities.

Arizona Storm has had a really tough life and knows that the one thing that will her to move on with her life is to make sure that what happened to her doesn't happen to anyone else. So despite the men in her life's (Tr

A Perfect Storm is the fourth book in the “Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor” series by Lori Foster. My favorite of the series, hands down.

A Perfect Storm focuses on Arizona and Spencer, characters that were first introduced in the previous book, Savor the Danger. If you’ve read the series you will be familiar with both Arizona and Spencer.
Arizona is an awesome character. She broke my heart and her courage and strength made me cheer her on. She’s had a difficult childhood and a horrible experience

Full review to come :)

A Perfect Storm is the fourth book in Lori's Men Who Walk on the Edge of Honor series. This is the story of Arizona and Spencer. Can I just say I've been antsy to get my hands on this book? So very excited.
Now, the story follows Arizona as she is struggling to live a life without fear. Imprisoned by human traffickers she trusts no one and fends for herself. However, with Spencer things are different. He pushes past her limits, forcing her to learn how to live again.

Fans of the Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor series you will not be disappointed in this latest installment. It might be my favorite so far.

Arizona got a story? Oh ya I loved Arizona when we met her in Savor the Danger. Jackson rescued her when human trafficiers threw her over a bridge so she would drown to death but I never thought she would get her own story. I am so glad she did. Dare, Trace, and Jackson treat her like a troublesome but loved little sister but Spencer doesn’t. He may believe h

Sigh…I can remember the very first Lori Foster book I read: Simon Says. That book hooked me to all things Lori Foster. I loved her writing style, her passionate characters, her descriptive words; the way she created such an amazing story had me spellbound.

Nothing has changed. Lori Foster still has it. She has created a favorite series that screams ALPHA male and her books are addictive.

These men are not just hot bodies who carry guns, kick ass when necessary, and have mad skills in the bedroom

I'm really surprised people liked this book as much as they did. I just found it creepy. The heroine (Arizona) is barely 21, but acts 13 (to give her credit, she does have a reason to). Her horrific past is the main topic of the book, so it is obviously mentioned often, but that just made it all the more uncomfortable to read. Especially when she is having sex with someone who is more than 10 years older than her. I just can't believe that someone who was recently raped repeatedly would find it ...more

Another huge hit for me with this last installment of the series! I know everyone is swooning over Spencer, but what made this book so great for me was hands down Arizona. I had really high expectations for the conclusion of the series, and Foster didn't disappoint me in the least. The only thing I wanted that I didn't get in the end, was the name of Alani and Jackson's baby! lol I don't know why it mattered to me not knowing the name, but it did!
Autumn (Fic Talk)

From the preview we got of Arizona in "Savor the Danger" I wasn't sure if I was going to like her or not.

Oh boy, was I wrong.

There will be a more in depth review later on for FicTalk, but damn, I did enjoy "A Perfect Storm." It was the perfect way to end a series. Spencer and Arizona were great characters with lots of humor, sexiness, and suspense thrown in.

Her interest perked up. “You do? About what?”
Already knowing it wouldn’t go over well, Spencer braced himself. “I bet you can’t go a month without cursing.”
Her chin tucked in, and her brows came down. “What does that have to do with anything?”
He had no idea, except that it annoying him to hear her be so coarse. “Go a month without cursing.” He hated himself, but he said, “Every time you slip, you owe me a kiss.”
