2 stars Contemporary RomanceRomantic SuspenseI m a fan of LF s Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor series and had high hopes for her new series but this first installment was sadly disappointing I didn t feel any connection between the Hh other than lust and their HEA was whiplash fast and trite The suspense art of the story was rather dull and definitely didn t make up for the inadeuate romance Overall this was a lackluster read that I m really glad I got free from the library Despite being underwhelmed with the series debut other characters have Thirteenth Child (Frontier Magic, promise so I might give the next book a chance Detective Logan Riske is working undercover searching for the man whom he believes was an eye witness to the murder of his best friend In order to find the elusive Rowdy Yates he sets himself up as a construction worker and neighbor to Rowdy s sister Pepper Believing she will be the link to lead him to her brother he is ruthless in hisursuit and will go to any lengths necessary to obtain the informationPepper Yates is hiding secrets For years she s been dodging the corrupt club owner who wants her dead Posing as Sue Meeks the shy and unimposing manager of the apartment building her goal is to be as inconspicuous as Craft Notes for Animators possible She hides herself well under over sized shapeless clothes no make up and the ugliest shoes ever She s veryrivate and keeps to herself The only substantial contact she has is the Perception and the External World phone calls from her beloved brother Foster has given us another well written romantic suspense with an alpha hero that is sexy as sin and a heroine that is full of surprises The nearerfect blend of romance intrigue action and humor made this an enjoyable read It s not too intense and everything wraps up uite neatly in the end The first half of the book moves at a slower Popular Representations of Development pace as these two dance around each other with their hidden agendas Logan never figures that he would start to have feelings for Pepper This little surprise throws him off kilter but still he sticks to thelan Lonely Sue MeeksPepper can t help but be aroused by this Sister for Sale piece of eye candy as hearades himself around in only his low slung shorts exposing all that delectable flesh and taking her breath away One of the highlights for me was Pepper coming out from under her Sue Meeks cocoon The reaction from Logan and his The Blue Door (Threshold partner Reese is nearriceless and had me laughing Without a doubt this is no shy meek woman She s resourceful smart and now very angry Things start to Two Views on the Doctrine of the Trinity pick up and while not without flaws I enjoyed the second half much better Run The Risk is the first installment in Lori Foster s latest series Love Undercover I liked the ruse and the mystery kept me invested until the very end It s steamy hot and we are given a cast of secondary characters that nearly take the limelight I think this is a veryromising series and I m already anxious to read the next installment Bare It All My Rating 35 StarsARC courtesy of Harleuin via NetGalley 25 starsA well written but otherwise The Art of Standing Still pretty run of the mill romantic suspense that would have earned at least one extra star from me had the heroine been likable or dropped herointless charade at trying to hide her apparently Pamela Anderson like assets sooner Her speech about taking out Morton s men was laughable to say the least and shows her for the silly ninja wanna be chick she trully is rather than the strong fearless woman she thinks herself as She settled her A Ladys Honor (Cliffs of Cornwall, purse in her lap and without furtherrompting said I was counting on you to get there in time but if you didn t I would have killed them Them Logan asked Morton Andrews His bully boys She rubbed her Bob and Larry in the Case of the Missing Patience palms over the denim covering her thighs Anyone in his circle who got in my way When you read such words from an untrained woman s mouth who s carrying only a knife unless she s named Xhex or Kate Daniels you can only wonder how s she stayed alive for so long or if she s lost her marbles somewhere along the wayAlso I don t get how Pepper after her transformation from homely to a supermodel said that she was glad to be back to her real self once Since based on her admittance she used to downplay her looks constantly while working on bars and clubs so as not to attract male attention yes she was THAT beautiful it would seem when did she get to wear the sexy make up tight jeans and tank topsLogan on the other hand was nice and while he had to trap Pepper to get what he wanted he genuinely came to care for her even though I couldn t understand why during the first half The suspense is stalled for the first half then moves in a fasterace later but it really never steals the show What stole the show for me was the secondary characters mainly Reese Alice and Pepper s brother who all are likely to get their own books in the futureFans of romantic suspense will The War to End All Wars probably enjoy it anyway but since it s not my fave genre I can t give it a thumbs up Still I liked the writing enough to give Foster another chance when Reese s book comes out ARCrovided by NetGalley I loved Lori s last series Men Who Walk The Edge of Honorand was sad when it came to an end but she romised us a fantastic series that we would love just as muchso was she wrongNO she wasn t Although this is a seperate series it carries on with the same theme of drug smuggling and trafficking of young womenNormally with a big build up of a book we are often left disappointed but I sure wasn t Within the first few chapters I was gripped and loving the story and instantly loved the characters especially LoganLet s just say that within the first 20% of the book I was calling out to my friends for assistanceI needed a fan as I had got so heated ha haI can t wait to read about Reese Rowdy Dash Copy kindy supplied by Harleuin via Netgalley 55Wow loved this book so freaking much I don t know why skipped this book in the series but When Detective Logan Riske goes undercover to find Pepper Yates a otential link to his best friend's unsolved murder he vows to gain her cooperation by any means necessary But the elusive beauty is suspicious and in far da.

M glad I went back and read it Pepper was an amazing herion who held her own and Logan was just wonderful he wasn t an ass to her and actually cared about how she felt This was an awesome Lori Foster book I am a HUGE fan of Lori Foster Men Who Walk The Edge Of Honor series The Buckhorn Brothers series and The Fighter series are some of my favorites I was so excited to read that Lori was releasing the Love Undercover series I couldn t wait to read Lori writes some of the best Alpha heroes along with heroines that are their Mostly Mama perfect fit I struggled through the first half of Run The Risk Not because of the writing or the story because I was definitelyulled into it from the beginning but from all of the secrets and lies between Logan and Pepper love these names It just about did me in I hated that Logan was okay with using Pepper to get to Rowdy While I liked Pepper s character immediately I struggled with Logan s character for this reason I wanted to like him so bad but I just couldn t get over his intentions towards Pepper I only knew the reason Logan was lying and using Pepper I had no idea what Pepper was hiding I just wanted to kick Loganconstantly trying to seduce Pepper to get the information he wanted UGH I loved when Pepper turned the tables on him and he had no idea what to do Even though I struggled with Logan s character in the beginning I was immediately interested in the secondary characters of Reese Rowdy and Dash I was so happy to see that they will each get their own books I liked the hint of a story line between Rowdy and the waitress at the bar and hope she is the heroine in his book And I liked the little glimpse of a future story between Reese and Alice Can t waitWowwhen all the secrets and lies came out this book just exploded and I was totally sucked in and I couldn t The Naked Man put it down I didn t want to leave Logan and Pepper Logan definitely made up for all of his liesKristen Ashley is the only author that I have read that has a way with her books that have you hating the Alpha male hero in the beginning and then you can t help but fall for him I didn t think Lori Foster could do anything to make me like Loganoh but she definitely succeeded because not only did I eventually like himI loved him Pepper was a great heroine I just loved her character and her relationship with Rowdy She may be one of my all time favorite heroinesJust a great story with lovable characters great HOT and STEAMY sex scenes and a great HEA I would definitely recommend Run The Risk and can t wait for Reese s book next Run The Risk has alace in my keeper Damias Children pile to be reread 5 out of 5 ratingThe only risk I want you to have is my last name Logan to Pepperhis last name is RiskesighARC copyrovided by NetGalley and HarleuinThank you so much Having very much enjoyed Lori Foster s Edge of Honor series I embarked on this one full of expectations She s always written great romantic suspense novels with incredibly alpha heroes to die for and I was expecting of the same hereI have to say I was decidedly underwhelmed by the first half of the book to the oint of almost giving up EVERYONE is lying and hiding something and no one is who they seem and they re not an easy bunch to likeBasic synopsis Pepper and Rowdy Yates are hiding out separately after one of them witnessed the murder of Jack Carmin Now Jack s best friend Detective Logan Riske has gone undercover trying to get close to Pepper to discover the whereabouts of her brother as he believes that he is the witness and he wants him to help bring the murderers to justiceSo Logan with a cover as a construction worker moves into the apartment next door to Pepper and attempts to use his charm to get to know her better Pepper is hiding under the false name Sue Meeks and never was a heroine aptly named As her alter ego Sue Pepper is an incredibly meek downtrodden dull doormat of a woman who hides herself under over sized shapeless clothes wears not a scrap of make up and scrapes her hair back in a lank ony tailNot surprisingly she s shocked by Logan s advances towards her and they act on their attraction to each other and have what I can only describe as the most uninspiring and unerotic sex I think I have ever read in a modern day contemporary romance PepperSue will not let him see her naked and will not even allow him to touch her so they have sex with her fully clothed she only removes her Backlash : La guerre froide contre les femmes panties for access and it s all overretty uickly Shockingly Logan actually thinks this is mind blowing and goes back for Now you have to wonder what on earth is under all those clothes Logan has seen the most identifiable Die Botin des Königs (Reiter-Trilogie part of her her face So what on earth can she be hiding under her shapeless wardrobe that would instantly give away her identity My imagination ran away with me maybe she was an amazingly famousorn star instantly recognisable by her tits Perhaps she was a famous topless model or was she even the girl with the dragon tattoo Possibly she s covered in scales and turns into an armadillo at full moon now that would be a Patagonia Express plot twist If I was Logan I d have worried that she had something extremely infectious and nasty hidden under those layers It s never explained sadlyBUT this is a game of two halvesThe first half was like this The second half was like this The novel spins on a knife edge at the halfwayoint when a sting goes down and EVERYTHING changes The first half had been so very slow so Predator pedestrian almost like walking uphill through treacle and suddenly everything and everyone changes and the story accelerates faster than a Porsche Pepper goes from a dowdy doormat to super hot badass femme fatale and has a totalersonality transplant Rowdy goes from controlling sniping bullying older brother to a mega rotective alpha hero Logan who I had disliked intensely in the first half starts to exhibit. Nger than he expected And the last thing Logan needs is to start caring for herPepper has spent years dodging the corrupt club owner who will stop at nothing to keep her silenced She can trust no one not even the handsome

All the expected hallmarks of a Lori Foster hero he s rotective alpha growly loving caring he kind of morphs into DareThe second half is high octane high calibre romantic suspense with almost non stop action and it s worth Seven Days in Utopia plodding through the decidedly unerotic first half to find the crock of gold awaiting you Logan and Pepper do finally get their freak on fully naked and we do at long last get some sizzling hot action but it s a long time coming I have to say that Pepper has a sudden outburst of TSTL which had my eyes almost rolling out of my head but it does lend to the tension as the story ratchets up in intensityI found myself liking Reese Rowdy and especially Dash and I will carry on reading this series and the next book is set up nicely in this one with Reese and his mysterious dog sitting neighbour AliceIt s not vintage Lori Foster but it s a great setup for what has theotential to be another winning series from her3 stars romantic suspense ARC courtesy of Harleuin via NetGalleyFor of my reviews Lots of Love please visit my Sinfully Sexy Book Blog This is a review of the audiobook I haven t been a big fan of Jim Frangione s narration in theast I think it is his cadence Nevertheless I love this author so I gave him another try He does a nice enough job here not a lot of differentiation and with his deep voice it is hard for him to do the women I will Reclaiming Love probably go on with the series on audio so he wasn t awful I have always called Lori Foster my Iron Woman She doesn t receive many five stars from me but then she rarely gets less than four stars I like her Romantic Suspense they don t have me biting my nails nor give me nightmares Still they get my heart beating faster and have me creeping toward the edge of my seat The emphasis is on the Romance Her stories are great and make it easy for me to identify with the heroineI usually like her characters and Detective Logan Riske and Pepper Yates AKA Sue Meeks didn t disappoint I don t blame Pepper for wanting to reveal her realersonality Five years is a long time to Vegangelical play a role especially one that is the opposite of your nature I don t blame her for falling for Logan either In order to find out who killed hisartner he is under the guise of a construction worker I ve always had a thing for a well built man in a tool belt He is trying to seduce Pepper in order to find out her brother s whereabouts But Lord help this guy when Pepper finds out he has deceived her Out on Audio How do you catch a killer when the only witness is on the run and can t be found Answer you go undercover and try to get close to the witness sisterTwo years ago Detective Logan Riske s best friend was murdered With no evidence and no witnesses the culprit is still roaming free but Logan wants justice and revenge When he learns that the witness Rowdy Yates has a sister safely tucked away away Defender of Faith, Revised Edition posing as an apartment building manager he decides to go undercover as a construction worker and fellow tenant to get closer to her Where she is her brother can t be far away But meeting Sue Meeks aka Pepper Yates is both the best and worst thing that could have happened to him His mission and his growing feelings for Pepper could cost him the woman as well as her lifeThere is a lot going on in this book and it delivers on manyoints humor action suspense and hot sex I giggled my way through the first few chapters with the introduction of Sue aka Pepper and Logan She was so No escuches su canción de trueno painfully shy that when faced with all the manly naked chest manliness of Logan her reactions were actually very comical However her wicked thoughts belie the buttoned uprude hiding beneath long skirts over sized sweaters and unkempt hair She can t fathom why a man as good looking as Logan would try so hard to break down her resistance and her carefully erected barriers But when he does he certainly doesn t hold backThe relationship between Rowdy and Pepper kept me uestioning whether she was a door mat or just absolutely devoted to her brother He literally was Big Brother I felt that Pepper s anger directed at Logan dragged on a little too long around nine chapters I understood why she felt betrayed and angry but her idea of Being the Best Me payback was to initiate sex and walk out immediately afterwards The next morning Pepper would act like nothing was wrong or be antagonistic By the second round I got bored and skipped the sex scene to get back to the actionThere were two subplots to set up the next books in the series and while I came to like Rowdy eventually his detour into a restaurant where he becomes infatuated with a waitress did nothing for this story except add on extra reading material Now I can guess who his love interest will be when his book comes outI really liked Alice She was uiet standoffish but there was a uiet strength about her that I really enjoyed Apparently she made her first appearance in Trace of Fever Men Who Walk The Edge of Honor Book 2 Overall I enjoyed this new series and I llrobably read the rest when they come out First I have to read the rest of the MWWTEoH series I just bought all the PBs yesterday Favorite uotes Thank you she said againHe thoughtfully watched her as he ate You know I just had my tongue in your mouth so you don t have to be so formalPepper gasped and choked on her Witch Creek (Wildlands pizzaI m wondering he said if I mentioned how bad I want to get you naked would you keel overThe only risk I want you to have
