The one woman he couldn't have was the only woman he desired…

She may be aloof, and more pretty than gorgeous, but Alani Rivers is the kind of woman a hot-blooded mercenary can't forget, no matter how hard he tries. So when Jackson Savor wakes up next to the naked, sleeping beauty—with no memory of what happened—he knows he's been drugged… even if Alani doesn't.

Now this is what I’m talkin’ about!

Savor the Danger is what I love in my Romantic Suspense reads! Hot, hot, hot heroes, and sexy, strong, intelligent heroines who do everything in their power to support the man they love – or the man they lust after, as the case may be. And did I mention hot heroes?

This story continues with our hero(es) working to bring down those scum of the earth men and women who make their living off of the misery of others by buying and selling human beings. Those are amon

Not that I had any doubt what so ever that I would love Jackson and his story just as much as the previous two, but I believe this one was my absolute favorite! I mean seriously, can you just picture this beautiful, yet lethal cowboy lounging on your front step when you arrive home? My favorite part in this whole book was at that exact moment, as he appeared to be asleep and Alani starts to back away, he drawls "Don't make me chase you darlin'!" TOTAL SWOON WORTHY MOMENT!!!
This was an oke read, though the ending left me a bit unsatisfied...I wanted a bit more.

I loved this one as much as I did the first time around, probably more!....Jackson is just to die for and I enjoyed the chase and retreat from the H/h.

If you haven't read this series yet then you really are missing a treat!

Three words: HAWT, HAWT, HAWT!!!

This was my favorite of the series!! Just when I thought they couldn't get any better, along comes Jackson with his country charm & cowboy hat. He knocks the panties off of Alani & any reader of the book.

Jackson has been half in love with, watching over & protecting Alani (Trace's sister) since he started working for Dare & Trace shortly after she was rescued from her kidnappers. He is a man with baggage

I can't handle Lori Foster. In fact, I'm pretty sure I should only be allowed to read Lori Foster books when I am home sick, because that is the only way these books are enjoyable.

Although to be honest, I really loved the opening of this story -- Jackson Savor, manliest stud evar (except for books 1 and 2), wakes up, rolls over, sees a chick in his bed, then pukes! He's been roofied, but it's not date rape guise, because it's Alani and he totally meant to have sex with her anyway.

What happens when you wake up naked–and in bed– with the woman you have been pining for; for a year, but you can’t remember how you got there? Ask Jackson Savor. Our favorite cowboy from the previous Novels When you Dare and Trace of Fever, Jackson Savor is a hard edged, yet honorable man of mystery and intrigue. I know, it sounds cliché, but I loved Jackson and his “Darlins” He could hog tie me up and have his wicked way with me all he wanted.
This is DNF for me. It's been sitting by my bed for a week where I couldn't bring myself to pick up and finish it. This is my first Foster book so I'm not familiar with her style of writing. The campy dialogue and even more campy contrived plot just wasn't working for me. And the characters were too cliche and trite for me. Everything was so incredibly over the top that it got distracting.

I liked the novella "Ready, Set, Jett." When You Dare was pretty good. Trace of Fever was...beyond painful. After the disaster that was Trace of Fever, I was very wary about reading this book, despite the other two being good. Obviously I had to finish the series (or what I thought was the end to the series) and find out what happened with Jackson and Alani, but I didn't want their story to suck. I liked Jackson; I liked Alani. Plus, I just couldn't handle another train wreck like ToF. However, ...more

The exciting saga of sexy men who walk the edge of honor continues with Savor the Danger!

Jackson Savor can’t get the beautiful Alani Rivers out of his head, but with respect to her recent trauma and being his friend, Trace’s, sister he vows to keep his distance. When Jackson wakes up in bed next to a naked Alani though, with no memory as to how he got there, all his good intentions get thrown out the window. Now he can’t stop thinking about what might have happened between them and what it would

It is a truth universally acknowledged that watching your partner in sexcipades run for the bathroom to vomit upon waking up and seeing you is a kick to the ol' self esteem. This is the situation in which Alani finds herself after a super hot night with Jackson; she thinks it's because he has regrets; he knows it's because he's been drugged. That much is revealed in the synopsis, but comes across much the opening chapter of the book.

This setup brings up what one would hope
What a great story. The premise was absolutely fabulous, gripping and funny. Alani was an interesting character, a little meek, innocent and naive but also brazen at times and bold in ways that aren't always helpful (which was interesting)

Most of all I loved Jackson. Jeepers Creepers, that man had me on a low simmer as I literally inhaled this book. His sexy dialogue just really hit a spot for me, I wasn't aware I like that sort of nearly-crass-but-more-so-blunt-and-confident dirty talk. But let

Savor the Danger is the third book in the Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor series and definitely my favorite.

We first meet Alani Rivers in When You Dare after being rescued from a human trafficking ring, she is fiercely independent, mature and strong willed all the whilst still trying to overcome the emotional trauma she endured while being held captive.

Savor the Danger is #3 in Lori Foster’s “Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor” series. This book is everything I would expect in a Lori Foster book and in a romantic suspense book – it is steamy, there is a nice romance and some decent action. The steam factor is nice, but there is substance to the story as well. The male character is instantly likeable and the female character is someone I would want as a friend. The setting is wonderful, much of the book takes place in a rural setting which is beaut ...more

So a guy wakes up in bed with a girl he's always dreamed about. Problem is, he doesn't remember how he got there. Interesting premise, right? Especially when the guy is Jackson, who is super cute and really crazy about Alani, a woman he's been chasing for ages.

I really liked the beginning of this book. I liked how much these two were into each other even while they're trying to solve the mystery of why this happened and what her ex might have to do with it, and I thought the slow build-up betwee

No one does romantic suspense better than Lori Foster. This one will curl your toes, seriously. I thought I would take this one to the beach and maybe read a few chapters. I ended up finding shade just so I could finish it. Even with the ocean breeze I was hot. I didn't read the first two in the series, but that in no way ruined this one since it was easy to pick up on Alani and her world and how it collides with Jackson Savor. The story picks up on the sex trade and the evil behind it which is ...more

Ugh. Just couldn't make myself finish this one--I knew it was a bad sign when the first thing I'd do when turning on my ereader was check to see what page I was on and how many I had left to go--a step I repeated about every five minutes or so. Finally I just gave up...right about the time Alani, Molly, and Priss all had their cozy little how-many-times-a-day-my-guy-can-do-it talk. (Yep. 'Cause who doesn't want to have that discussion with their sister-in-law?) Just couldn't take it anymore. Not ...more

I have to say I think this one has been my favorite of the series so far. Even though I loved Dare and Trace, there was just something about this storyline I seemed to like more, and Jackson was just so cocky you couldn't help but fall fast for him. Where the other two storylines built up to the two characters "hooking up" this one was opposite and pretty much started with that and only seemed to get hotter and hotter. Even though Alani was more docile, I still enjoyed reading her parts. She was ...more

This was the third in the series and in my opinion the very best. Loved, loved, loved it. I was a little wary after Trace's story which I didn't like much so I was very pleasantly surprised that this was so good. Jackson is to die for. Even though he had had a hard life, he was so sweet, kind and loving. I also really liked Alani. Even though she had been through a lot of trauma in story 1, she was very strong and mature for her age. Together, this couple sizzled and I loved their chemistry. Now ...more

Don’t make me chase you, darlin’.

As if any of us would run from Jackson! The first 2 books in this series have been enjoyable, the characters are all interesting people and it’s been a nice progression – at the end of book 1 I looked forward to book 2. At the end of book 2, I was even more anxious to get to book 3 and Jackson. Jackson blew everyone out of the water, and I fell so hard for the guy. We had a little introduction to Jackson in TRACE OF FEVER

ahhhh, lovers Jackson!

As you may know by now, I love these guys and Jackson best of all! This series has great plot lines, witty banter and amusing angst along with the interplay of previous characters. Jackson is so wonderful, funny, honest and loving that his cockiness and rudeness only enhance his appeal.

We first met Jackson in Trace of Fever when he was called in to help protect Priss. Since then, the big gorgeous hunk of cowboy has been watching Alani. His intentions may have starte

Jackson has wanted Alani since he first set eyes on her, and now he is more determined than ever to have her. Problem is he wakes up next to her naked and so it seems he has already had her, but the problem is that he can't remember it. Alani is still recovering mentally from her kidnapping, and hasn't felt compelled to trust any man beyond her brother Trace and his friend Dare. Too bad Jackson is a temptation that she just can't resist though, and despite his overly sexual banter he is proving ...more
When I started this book I wasn't really fond of Jackson. I didn't like how he talked to Alani. To me he was just plain rude. So I really didn't expect to like this book a whole lot. I am happy to say that Jackson was not at all like I expected, he even won me over with his oddball charm by the end of the book.

I found it so ironic with the scene that the book opened up on. Jackson has had a thing for Alani for a long time, so when he woke up in bed with her naked with him and not remembering any

LOL - Lori Foster and I must think alike, except where her heroine is named Alani my villainess is named Alani. Picture Liv Tyler's Arwen gone bad, very bad! Weird to be reading about an Alani being blonde - and NICE!

Anyhow, I adored this book - enough to go back and grab Trace's and Dare's stories. Yeah, I know - backward as usual...

This book started to lose me about half way through. Alani, said a few times, "I am not stupid, you know". Who was she trying to convince? Me as the reader? She failed. She came across as a pampered, tstl, sex crazed, jealous idiot. I mean one night she is a virgin, the next night she is propositioning a guy who has been trying to get into her pants forever. She used sex to manipulate, in my opinion. She had sex with a guy who is a known horn dog, and apparently in this day in age, she was too i ...more

I cannot say this one is my fav of the series ;)

The whole story felt strangely disconnected to me, like there were pieces of story with no relation to each other. And it didn't help that I couldn't relate with the hero or the heroine, both of them so far and uni-dimensional, I don't know why.

Jackson was better in the previous book, in this one I found him too gallant and superficial, never really like a real person. And Alani was a bit too detached, too ethereal for me.

Excellent; I love the way Lori weaves everyone from the first two books into Savor the Danger. And I l loved the way Arizona and Spencer were introduced. I can only assume (or rather hope) that they will be the characters for the next book. Jackson and Alani were fun to read; and having Jackson have no memory of a night he dreamed about forever; priceless. Great read.

My favorite Men of Honor book so far. Whilst Alani was a little annoying, I loved the over-the-top possessiveness of Jackson and his assuredness with everything he did. There was a lot more steam factor in this one, right from the start!
