Review: Trace of Fever by Lori Foster
Trace of Fever By: Lori Foster
(HQN Books (2011), Edition: Original, Mass Market Paperback, 400 pages)
Cost: Free (Ebook downloaded from Public Library via Overdrive)
Trace is a mercenary who is working to uncover a human trafficking operation. While undercover he meets Priss when she proclaims herself to be the daughter of the very person Trace is trying to take down. Trace is assigned to keep an eye on Priss while "Daddy" figures out what to do with her.
I enjoyed the book though there were some issues I had with the story. The guy Trace is trying to take down tried to have Trace killed. Trace survived, of course, and then asked his "boss" about it. I don't understand the logic of the "boss" believing Traces motivation for working for him as altruistic if Trace was still okay to work there. I would have been a bit miffed if I were Trace and suspicious if I were the boss. Maybe you have to be a corrupt, human trafficking boss to believe that kind of logic. Also, Priss' character fell a little flat for me. She lived a secluded and sheltered life while at the same time owned and worked in a porn shop?? Unlikely. The sex scenes were hot and the tender "I will protect you don't worry" moments were well done.
All in all, a good book to pass the time if you can ignore some realities and just enjoy the mushy stuff.
