Released: March 27, 2012
Series: Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor #4
Published by Harlequin
Pages: 305
Format: ARC

Spencer first met Arizona while she was doing what she normally does best.  In the middle of a bar fight while trying to uncover some human trafficking organization.  They both have bad past history with that subject.  Arizona was sold by her own father to a group that used her for prostitution.  Spencer lost his wife to that same organization while she was at the wrong place at the wrong time and got killed.

Having taken care of the head of that group in the previous book, Arizona can’t just sit around now and do nothing.  She has found another bar that is running a similar group and wants to play bait.  She knows Jackson would never approve so she enlists  Spencers’ help, or blackmails him, whichever way you want to look at it.

Spencer being older than her feels that his attraction to Arizona is something he should never act on it.  Not only is she younger, but she’s emotionally damaged and has a lot of issues.  A lot of those issues sometimes made her a bit immature about certain things but that was part of her charm.  She is a lot like a child still and Spencer was just the perfect guy to make her comfortable, to get her to trust again, and to allow herself to feel and to want.  Spencer on the other hand

The suspense subplot was good and interesting, even though I did manage to figure out who the real bad guy was as soon as he showed up.  It was also nice to see the whole gang working on this “case” and seeing a little bit more of their daily lives.

I think as a couple they are my second favorite, just because Jackson and Alani were just too awesome.  But don’t let fact that he was trying to be gentle with Arizona fool you, Spencer is packing a lot of heat, guns and otherwise.

“He couldn’t discuss the size of his junk with her. Not ever.”“Got it. Well-lit, you in the dominant position – and plenty of laughs. Any other demands?”

I have this series on my wishlist and can’t wait to read them. They sound really great. I have read quite a few books with human trafficking in them, and really enjoyed them.

I just got the first book in this series and I’m glad to see that the others sound just as exciting. Spencer and Arizona sound like a couple that might be able to help each other heal.

Thanks for sharing your review!
