Review: Dash of Peril by Lori Foster

Title: Dash of Peril
By: Lori Foster
Series: Love Undercover #4
My Copy:
The BookWhisperer's Rating: 

To bring down a sleazy abduction ring, Lieutenant Margaret "Margo" Peterson has set herself up as bait. But recruiting Dashiel Riske as her unofficial partner is a whole other kind of danger. Dash is 6'4" of laid-back masculine charm, a man who loves life - and women - to the limit. Until Margo is threatened, and he reveals a dark side that may just match her own....
Beneath Margo's tough facade is a slow-burning sexiness that drives Dash crazy. The only way to finish this case is to work together side by to skin. And as their mission takes a lethal turn, he'll have to prove he's all the man she needs - in all the ways that matter....

Lori Foster has this amazing ability to write wonderful alpha males who just know how to be a man – that is exactly what Dash is.  While Margo places herself in danger to catch the men who are abducting women, Dash places himself right along with her so that he can take care of her.  This might seem like Dash is overbearing with his protectiveness but really he is not.  He knows when to back off and let Margo be the lieutenant and he also knows when to step up and take control.

Their relationship with a sweet/hot one that made me feel all warm and nice inside at times (like when Dash takes care of Margo and her cat) and then comes the sexy time.  The one thing that I will say is that for some reason, the toughness of Margo kind of threw me off of her character.  I love it when a female character is strong but Margo seemed too strong.  There was a few times that I would have loved just to see her give in and be scared or something.  I guess I would say that I wanted her more human like than robot like. 

I did love the side story of Cannon and Yvette.  I hope this will continue to grow and that they will get a book because Cannon was just an interesting character.
