CAUGHT IN THE CROSSFIRE OF VENGEANCE AND DESIRE

Undercover mercenary Trace Rivers loves the adrenaline rush of a well-planned mission. First he’ll earn the trust of corrupt businessman Murray Coburn, then gather the proof he needs to shut down the man’s dirty smuggling operation. It’s a perfect scheme—until Coburn’s long-lost daughter saunters in with her own deadly plan for revenge.

With a smile like an angel and fire in her eyes, Priscilla Patterson isn’t who she seems to be. But neither is the gorgeous bodyguard who ignites all her senses. Joining forces to plot Coburn’s downfall, Priss and Trace must fight the undeniable heat between them. For one wrong move, one lingering embrace, will expose them to the wrath of a merciless opponent…

3.5/5
We first meet Trace in [book:When You Dare|9758743] after his sister is rescued from Sex traffickers by Dare. Driven by his need to rid the world of these vile scumbags  who sell women to the highest bidder, he goes undercover and infiltrates a sex trade organization.

He proves himself invaluable and capable to the boss Murray, and finds himself in a right hand man position.

Our heroine Priscilla was a conundrum for me.  On one hand she portrayed the fierce ass kicker; and on the other hand, she played the virginal, sheltered, but mouthy woman.  I felt like she was a schizo.

While I loved Trace, I didn’t love Priss. There were multiple instances of the classic “too stupid to live” that just annoy me in books.  Where the heroine defies common sense and charges into the fray and will most likely end up dead if she isn’t saved by someone else :insert eye roll here:

The plot was OK, it wasn’t a suspense plot, more of a “will they kill him or not” plot.  There were a few twists coming you don’t see until the end, and that was interesting.

I enjoyed seeing Dare and Molly, Chris and Matt, the dogs and Alani and Jackson.

I don’t want to go into much more, the writing is solid, I enjoy the way Lori Foster tells a story.

I also like the way she did Trace and Priss’s romance/love.  It didn’t feel rushed, even though it was only a few days they were together.
