Arizona Storm is a bit of a conundrum to Bounty Hunter, Spencer Lark. She is young, beautiful and determined to play vigilante. After her near death experience where human traffickers threw her off a bridge into water where they fully expected her to drown, Arizona was saved by Jackson Savor. Jackson quickly claimed Arizona as a sister of sorts and attempts to make up for the awful life she had up to her near-drowning. Arizona tries to acclimate herself to Jackson and his cohorts, but after all the horror and abuse she has been through in her young life, she has many issues, trust being a big one. For some reason, Arizona has taken to Spencer and trusts him.
Later, Arizona, now 21, breaks into Spencer Lark's home while he is sleeping He wakes to find her in his bedroom watching him sleep. Arizona has a proposition for Spencer. She has been investigating a bar and grill that she believes is heavily involved with the trafficking of humans and she wants to shut them down, and she needs Spencer's help, without Jackson finding out what she is up to. Spencer, knowing the danger Arizona will be putting herself in makes an agreement with Arizona and in a round about way includes Jackson and the other men with this task.
Spencer's attraction to the beautiful Arizona is obvious, but he keeps pushing it aside with the excuse that Arizona is too young for him. He also uses the fact that he lost his wife to the same human trafficking organization three years prior as a big stumbling block to move on. Out of everyone Arizona knows, Spencer is the only one who truly understands her issues and her motivations. With Spencer's sense of humor and understanding of Arizona, she begins to come out of her emotional shell and experience feelings a normal young female should feel. Spencer is also in awe of Arizona's strength and determination to squash these human traffickers while coming into her own.
I have to say it, this was my favorite book in the series so far. First I love Arizona. She is gritty and honest while at the same time completely vulnerable. Spencer and Arizona have this steamy chemistry throughout that just makes for an amazing ride. Both characters, come together so well to overcome their pasts. Lori Foster has such a way of making a couple just mesh that I am in awe of her. An awesome MUST read!!!
