"Expected publication: March 25th 2014" How come then the 4,67 stars rating? Seriously, People should read the book FIRST before rating it #petpeeve
To start I will say that I really dont like the cover of this book, I dont like the colour and I dont like the model that was used. Yes, that is my personal opinion and I know I am being really picky and others may not agree, but the cover of a book makes a huge difference to me. The cover helps me to visualise the character and every time I imagined Dash I kept coming up with this image which ruined it for me. A book cover often has a huge influence as to my decision to read or not, and if it ...more

Sooooo....I was super excited to read my ARC No Limits which is Cannon Colter (introduced in LF's "Love Undercover" series) book. I get about 5% in and realize I'm lost because I neglected unintentionally to read this book!! My only excuse is it fell off my radar with so many great books out there to ALL know what I'm talking about!!

This was a great ending to the series, I honestly didn't think I would enjoy it as much as I did only because Margo &

I received this book from Netgalley for my honest review.

I'm so happy because I was right: this book is much better than the last (Rowdy's) one! :D

I enjoyed very much Dash and his attitude towards Margo!

He kwnos what he wants and how to get it and it's a joy to read!

Margo was also interesting. Her disfunctional family with a jerk of father and alcoholic mother was exlpanation enough why she's the way she is.

Dash's understand of that was incredible. He understands Margo better than she

I'm such a fan of both the Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor and the Love Undercover series, so obviously I was excited for Dash's book.

But I was kind of let down. Not a lot, mind you, I did enjoy it. It just wasn't as awesome as I'd hoped.

I'm having a hard time expressing why I didn't like it as much as Rowdy's, but the best way I can is that I feel the pacing was off.

The whole beginning half (yes HALF) was slow as far as plot. There was a lot (and I do mean a LOT) of sexual tension, and as

Dash is hot and awesome for Margo, but Rowdy is still my favorite guy in this series. I should have known that Margo had a little sub in her with her high power job. Can West have a HEA too?

Love the teaser before the book even began that Cannon is getting his own HEA with the start of a new series, and I hope there will be a bunch of hot MMA guys hanging out.

Every series must come to an end and Dash of Peril is the last book in Lori Fosters Love Undercover series, but man what an awesome ending!

Tough as nails police Lieutenant Margaret Margo Peterson doesnt have time for relationships but Dashiel Dash Riske has plans to make her see otherwise and while hed never ask for the trouble they get into, he cant help but be thankful that she needs help and
Fantastic book. I've been looking forward to Dash's book. He is a confident but mostly laid-back kind of guy, who also has a wide protective streak. In previous books in the series his interest in Margo has become more obvious. In this one, that interest also has him getting involved in her latest case. Margo has been on the trail of men who kidnap women and force them to make pornographic movies by setting herself up as bait. Dash has been watching her and steps in to save her life when she is ...more

Margo is working undercover trying to find the criminals abducting women and forcing them to do pornography. She is using herself as bait and Dash Riske doesn't like that overly much. Dash has been trying to convince Margo that he can help her and he has also been trying to persuade her into bed. Margo is trying to deny Dash because she doesn't want to be seen by her ...more

My Review:

This is the fourth book in the 'love undercover' a series and opens up where Margo is trying to catch some people who are kidnapping women & forcing the to film a porno. She is undercover at a bar and comes out to run into Dash, who has been looking for her. He doesn't like what she's doing, so he's hunting her down to make sure she's safe. It starts to snow, so she drives home slowly. She is T-boned by the criminals who want her dead. The accident is witnessed by Dash, who runs
Paranormal Kiss
Dash of Peril is the 4th book in the Love Undercover series by Lori Foster. I have to say I think its my favorite in the series to date. I just loved Dash and I really enjoyed him and Margo together. Margo is intelligent, independent, and no-nonsense with a secret soft side. Dash is perfect for Margo and a really great hero. He is strong, protective and charming. Margo is so used to her tough Lieutenant role that she has a hard time letting loose and being herself. She slowly discovers that with ...more
The fourth book in Lori Foster's Love Undercover series. Lt. Margaret Peterson is out to find the bad guys and is willing to put her life on the line. Dash Riske, brother of Logan Riske from Run the Risk, is attracted to "Margo" and is developing a protective streak towards her. But Margo is tough and she doesn't need any protection! But the baddies are after her and maybe having someone at her back isn't so bad.

This was a great addition to the Lover Undercover Series. I thought that Margo and Dash made wonderful main characters, and I really enjoyed getting to know them better and seeing their relationship develop. I liked the softer side of Margo that we saw in this book, and enjoyed the way that Dash was protective, yet acknowledged Margo's strength, intelligence, and was content to step back and let her do her job. I loved seeing the previous main characters from this series again, and enjoyed the ...more

My favorite book of the series! Margo and Dash were perfect together. he was an alpha hero without being a jerk. It was so refreshing!! He was attentive, carrying, and charming. Margo was also my favorite heroine, she was tough as nails and still so vulnerable. Of course seeing all the other favorites made me really happy. I would definitely recommend this book.

This is the 4th and last book in the Love Undercover series by Lori Foster. Hate to see it come to the end but included in this book is a bit of a intro into her next series so that's something to be excited about. This is Dash's book the hotter that hot brother to Logan Riske from book one. We've seen him in every book but now he gets to step to the forefront and he makes his presence known in a big way. At 6'4" that's a whole lot of man. Confidence personified he meets his match with Lt. ...more

Lori Foster continues her Love Undercover series following the relationship between Dash Riske (brother of Detective Logan Riske) and Lt. Margaret (Margo) Peterson. Dash's interest in his brother's boss has been alluded to in previous books, and they find themselves the central focus of this volume. They were drawn together at the end of Getting Rowdy as Margaret went undercover with Dash's help to crack a ring producing violent videos.

"Foster delivers yet again. Her fourth Love Undercover novel is a tightly plotted, cunning, clever and overwhelmingly sensual tale that will hook from the first action-packed scene. Foster's ability to break out from character stereotypes and go inside their complicated psyches makes the relationships in this story that much more intense, as every encounter turns into something unforgettable. From a well-remembered cast of series stars to the quick plot twists and slow-burning tension between ...more

But for now I will say...Dash, I totally love you and your five-O'clock shadow, your calm, easy going personality and your fierce dominating lovin'!!! Totally didn't think the book could get better and then my one of my oldest book boyfriends showed up (Havoc) and with my other boyfriend being mentioned...ahhh, Drew Black...can't wait to get more of that man!!!

So looking forward to Lori's newest series...momma is going back to the MMA! Pick this one up!!!

While I really liked Dash, I wasn't warm to Margo. Having read others before this one I was familiar with the other characters and things that had transpired. I just did not grasp them as a couple.

Lori Fosters Love Undercover series comes to a smoking hot conclusion in Dash of Peril. If you enjoy your romantic suspense long on the romance and short on the suspense, this story is a winner.

And while its absolutely not necessary to have read the whole series to get totally into Dash of Peril, there is lots of input from characters previously introduced in the series that are much sweeter if you know all the players.

Although the romance starts almost as

My Opinion:

Warfield, Ohio

We already met Margo & Dash in the previous books! Dash is Logan's brother and Margo is Logan & Reese's boss - their Lieutenant!


Margo is still spending her time sitting around in bars hoping she'll be able to draw out the bad guys who are abducting girls to abuse & use them for porn videos.

Finally it seems to pay off, but unfortunately they don't abduct her - they cause a car crash that leaves Margo injured and helpless waiting in her car for them to finish her off.

This book was my ultimate goal after reading Run the Risk , the first book in the Love Undercover series. I had super high hopes for Dash of Peril . I expected it to be my favorite book of the four because I was drawn to Dashs easygoing attitude, but it ended up taking second place. Sorry Dash, Rowdy beat you out! I still heart you, though.

I know each book in the Love Undercover series can be read as a standalone, but I had to read the books in order. Im glad I did. In Dash of Peril we

Dash of Peril is the fourth instalment of the Love Undercover series by this established author and is as sexy and enthralling as ever. These books are contemporary romance suspense that feature characters in Law Enforcement and those they love. Theres a fine line sometimes between upholding the law and breaking it and these stories bring light to issues that are sometimes hidden. A fabulous way to spend a few hours and although the books are connected happily all are easily read as standalone . ...more

Dashiel Dash has been interested in Margret Margo throughout the series and has even helped her while undercover on her current case. Someone is kidnapping girls, drugging and raping them, and a few have turned up dead. Margo has set herself up as bait and when the villains attempt to grab her, she finds herself injured and in danger. Dash steps in to watch over her, much to Margos annoyance and the tale that unfolds was sexy, intense and filled with danger.

Lieutenant Margaret Peterson is a tough, take-no-prisoners, and intimidating cop to everyone except Dashiel Riske. Dash sees the the part of Margo that no one else - maybe even Margo - can see. This being the fourth book in the Love Undercover series, we have seen Margo and Dash before. She and Dash both appeared in Run the Risk, Bare It All and Getting Rowdy. But now, their romance moves to the front and center.
