Stella Krane lives her life looking over her shoulder for the ex-boyfriend that nearly killed her. One look at her tells Private Investigator, Logan Wild, that she's hiding something, but that isn't enough to keep him away. Feeling something growing between them, he interrupts before she can get seriously injured and takes her under his wing. Though Stella is reluctant to draw anyone else into her dangerous world she slowly finds herself growing to trust Logan like she never has anyone else...
Wow. I knew before picking up Logan that the tone was going to be a little different from the other books I've read by Foster, and that could certainly be said! There was a bit more dirty talk, a bit more suspense and a bit more action. Saying that there were still the hallmarks of a Foster book that I've come to know and love.
One of the big things is the family element. Close knit relationships between families is something that Foster does well and it doesn't seem to matter what type of contemporary fiction she's doing it in, she manages to get it spot on for the tone of the book and Logan was no different. The other thing is tying all the books together. Even though this is a separate series there are still links to the other characters and I liked that her world includes them all.
The chemistry between Stella and Logan was through the roof, and there were some very steamy sex scenes, complete with dirty talk (the main departure from the other Foster books that I've read) and it worked well. It added another element and definitely furthered their relationship.
There was also more action in the book and darker demons to get past. Both Stella and Logan had a past and they were both struggling to get past it in their own ways, but with each other's help they start to succeed.
The tone was different in this book, and I think that it worked well and created something different from the Love in Bloom series but with a few elements that make it clearly Foster's.

WILD BOYS AFTER DARK, Book One
Stella “Stormy” Knight is an expert at hiding—her feelings, her past, and her identity. Sometimes all that hiding takes its toll, and she needs to come out from under that heavy suit of armor and cut loose—but it never takes her long to put it right back on and disappear without a trace.
Private Investigator Logan Wild is relentless in his pursuit to discover the truth for his clients. He works hard, plays even harder, and always walks away unscathed and untethered. Until he meets mysterious and sexy-as-hell Stormy, who leaves him craving more than a one-night stand.
Passion ignites, secrets are shared, and their deep connection is impossible to ignore. But in order to have a future, Logan must uncover Stormy’s dark past—and when he does, he’ll hold her fate in his hands.
