    "Steamy Suspenseful Sequel!"

    Bare It All is the second book in the Love Undercover series, and follows Detective Reese Baredon and Alice Appleton and their developing relationship. Reese is very curious about Alice's past and wants to protect her. Alice has secrets she doesn't want to share, but Reese isn't about to let his quirky neighbour get away with that.

    Alice is a secondary character from another book written by Lori Foster, 'Trace of Fever'. It isn't necessary to have read that book to understand the trauma that Alice has gone through that has left her wary of her surroundings and isolated from her family (but, seriously, that too is an excellent book and well worth a credit!).

    While I very much enjoyed the first book in this series (Run the Risk), Alice is my favourite character due to her quirks and her strength of character so I loved listening to her story. Worth a credit? Oh yes, absolutely!

    "Excellence from the great Lori Foster !"
    Any additional comments?

    We met Detective Reese Bareden and his neighbor Alice Appleton in book one, Run The Risk. Reese rescues a stray dog, brings it home and then realizes that it’s still young and really shouldn’t be left home alone during the day. He’d seen Alice in his building, thought she worked from home, so he approaches her to see if she’d be willing to dog sit during Reese’s long days at the office. Alice agrees. She doesn’t say much to Reese, keeps the conversation “dog” related. Reese, however, is really intrigued by Alice. He thinks she is beautiful but knows she doesn’t think so. He can tell by how she dresses and carries herself. Alice, however, shows no interest in Reese, only Cash, Reese’s dog............ This story grabbed me and didn’t let me go. It’s everything I look for in a romance and while not labeled “suspense” there is some of that in here as it pertains to the case Reese and Logan are working on. But the character who stole the show for me in here was Alice. It’s impossible to describe her totally without giving too much away, but suffice it to say that she’s scarred from her past and has trouble trusting people. If that weren’t enough, she carries a lot of guilt for what happened, even though it really and truly was not her fault. She did what she had to do to survive; but she lives with that every day of her life. It’s caused her to be a bit of an introvert and she’s even cut ties with her family. Alice is super intelligent and though she’s extremely careful with people she immediately senses that Reese is someone she can trust. And he’s gorgeous and sexy and she loves to just look at him............. The introduction of the case that Alice inadvertently lends herself to brings just a little bit of mystery and suspense to this story. It allows the author to continue the human trafficking storyline while adding the twist of drug trafficking to it. At the same time, she provides a nice set up for the next story by highlighting Rowdy Yates, our next hero............

    Ultimately, what I really loved about this story was the focus on Reese and Alice and their budding relationship. They get a lot of page time, talking and getting to know each other and we see a lot of character growth in Alice. We see her break out of her self-imposed solitary lifestyle and develop friendships, gaining additional confidence in herself as a woman. Reese is patient and single minded in the fact that Alice is the one for him and that comes through strongly as well. I loved how these two are always honest and upfront, voicing their thoughts and bringing everything out into the open............

    From start to finish I love this book and in true Lori Foster style we get very passionate sex and full on Alpha male romance.

    I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.

    "Keep this series coming"
    Where does Bare It All rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's worthy of a listen. Not at the top but it is a series I'm interested in.


    What about Jim Frangione’s performance did you like?

    He's as good as ever.


    Any additional comments?

    I think it's credit worthy if your interested in this series. If you can catch it on sale that's even better.

    "Yikes...TSTL Lead Character"
    What disappointed you about Bare It All?

    Alice is really, really stupid. At first, I thought perhaps the whole wide-eyed innocent disingenuous thing might work. Not. I have read all of these books and found that as time goes on, each book Foster puts out, the lead female becomes more and more annoying to me. This one tops the list of TSTL (too stupid to live). In this book Alice takes a risk that is beyond stupid - when all she had to do was make a phone call to her POLICE DETECTIVE boyfriend and get help in a very dangerous situation. But because of some atonement crap issues she seems to have, she figures she is smarter and better able to handle a dangerous situation. When in truth, she not only endangered herself but also the other person she was "rescuing." What if the bozo bad guy had killed them both, which he could have easily done, then what? Yikes, I cannot stand dumb characters. And her absolute oblivion to logical thinking and understanding why her now lover is upset over her actions is beyond ludicrous. I also found the secondary character Rowdy to be a very confusing character. He is supposedly a stand-up guy - but in one scene between him and a woman he is interested in - he acts like a complete a** - basically letting her know that if she won't put out - another woman will. Too bad, so sad honey, it could have been you, but well - I'm gonna get me some action tonight either way. And that is supposed to make him sexy????? Ugh is too mild a word.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Lori Foster again?

    Probably done with her. I don't even know if I can finish this one...


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He drones when he reads...dragging out certain words in a way that takes you out of the story.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Bare It All?

    Definitely the one with Rowdy in the bar with Avery described above.


    Any additional comments?

    I used to really like Lori Foster - but I don't get why she seems to want to portray women as dumb and needy and her male characters arrogant to the point of total jerks. I like a strong alpha male as good as the next woman, but some of the actions and words that come out of these guys mouth - well if someone talked to me that way, I'd knock their block off. And I sure wouldn't find it sexy. I don't think that is Foster's intention, but I don't see how any intelligent woman could read these characters and view them in any other light.

    Story
    "Don't Bother"
    What disappointed you about Bare It All?

    It starts with a long description of the perfect male sex partner and just would not stop. That is all the further I got. If you are into that I suppose it might be OK. However I am looking for a story that grabs me in the first 20 minutes or so and this just kept getting worse.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Lori Foster again?

    No


    How could the performance have been better?

    There needs to be a story


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Bare It All?

    I would say that long interminable descriptions of sexual attraction that seem to be totally unrealistic would have to go. Tell me a good story and let sex be a spice.


    Any additional comments?

    Not worth even the little bargain money that this cost me.

    "sweet, hot, & suspenseful"

    It took me a bit to get into this narrator, but once I was immersed in the story it was amazing. I love the story itself from the get-go. Foster somehow made this novel simultaneously cute & sexy, racy & suspenseful.

    Foster brings another heartbreakingly brilliant alpha male to the forefront with this tale. t was almost comical at times watching him fight against his desires. I appreciate how multifaceted each character in this novel is, be they main characters or supporting cast. No one is one sided. I also loved seeing them all come together.

    Overall? I felt like I was watching a crossover episode of my favourite shows. It was brilliant and I can’t wait to reread it in print. It’s one of those stories that stays with you.

    "Another Favorite"

    I had actually read an ARC of this before it came out then jumped on the audio as soon as it was available. Jim Frangoine is a wonderful narrator, and while I don't always like how he narrates (I thought he fell a little flat in A Perfect Storm) I thought he did a great job on this one.

    I really liked this one, I had not read the first one in the series but had no problem following the story. We met Alice in the the second "Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor" series, and I am glad we get to see her again and that she gets a HEA. And it was pretty cool to see Trace too.

    As with all the men in these books, Reese falls hard and fast for Alice, he wants to know her secrets and Alice is afraid of what Reese will think of her when he finds out the truth about her past...amidst all of this is the search for the "bad" cops within the ranks and then Alice gets herself involved in a whole new mess by assisting a girl in need.

    I loved seeing Alice come out of her shell and not only get involved with Reese but make new friends and get back in touch with her family. This was a great read and I cannot wait for Rowdy's book....I also wonder if Dash will get his book with Lieutenant Peterson??


    So now I want to go back and read all the Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor books then the fist book in this series and then this one again....

    "Good second installment"
    Would you listen to Bare It All again? Why?

    Probably, the book held my attention and the characters were well rounded out making me able to connect with them.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It included all the past characters and tied in very well with the first book. A continuation of the first book instead of another story in a series.


    What about Jim Frangione’s performance did you like?

    Nothing stood out, he was easy to listen to.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I'm not very good with this question. :(


    Any additional comments?

    Worth the money or credit.
