A Perfect Storm (Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor, #4) by Lori Foster

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….

3/5 stars

While I really like this series and all the books have been really good I must say that I didn't like this book as much as the previous ones. I just didn't like Arizona all that much. I mean she's suppose to be this kick-ass 21 year old woman with a horrible past, but to me she came off as a bratty 12 year old who uses her past as an excuse to go off and do dangerous things by herself because she thinks she doesn't deserve anything else. I understand her history with human traffickers and prostitution makes her leery of men but she acted as if she knew nothing of what goes on between two people or why two people would even want to be together. And Spencer must have the patience of a saint to put up with her and the stuff she pulls. I did like the idea of Spencer being brought into the company with the other guys and hopefully there will be others brought in. With the way the book ended it sounds like there will be a follow up. These books definitely need to be read in order to get the full effect.
