When Detective Logan Riske goes undercover to find Pepper Yates, a potential link to his best friend's unsolved murder, he vows to gain her cooperation by any means necessary. But the elusive beauty is more suspicious - and in far more danger - than he expected. And the last thing Logan needs is to start caring for her....
Pepper has spent the past five years dodging the corrupt club owner who will stop at nothing to keep her silenced. She can trust no one, not even the handsome new "construction worker" who's moved in next door. The heat between them is undeniable. But will surrendering to passion bring her the safety she so desires - or will her feelings for Logan draw them both into a killer's crosshairs?

The story just dragged on. I tried 3 different times to listen to this book, but the slow pace of the story lost me every single time.
Not sure. I might try one, but if it starts out this slow, I won't waste three attempts again.

Not having the initial 5-8 minutes with the "distant" woman oogling and wanting to jump the guy's bones. I'd never heard the expression "eye rape" before. I wish I hadn't. This was before 8 minutes into the book. I'm not a prude and am fine with sex scenes in a book. But this seemed like it would turn into a movie you'd go to the XXX center that's open 24 hours. Please keep in mind I could be very wrong that maybe it doesn't turn into that. I wasn't willing to find out. Within 30 minutes I'd hated the book and didn't care to find out anything more.
No, only this author.
Absolutely none in the 30 minutes I endured.
The narrator was pleasant.
I'd been reading a lot of historical and wanted to come back to the modern age so I picked this one up. I really enjoyed it much more than I thought I would. I'd not read this author before so I didn't know what to expect, I'm really glad I gave it a try. I'd listened to the narrator before (he reads the Black Daggar Brotherhood series) and I knew I'd like him. Jim Frangione just makes all the guys sound like sexy alpha males. sigh....
I might, if I knew they were into light, fluffy, romantic suspense.
It compares favorably to her other light romantic suspense books and possibly to some of the Jayne Ann Krentz books. I can't really pick a specific title.
There wasn't a huge difference in the various mens and womens voices, other than knowing one was a woman and one was a man, but he did well enough that he didn't detract from the book in my opinion.
I am a Lori Foster fan but I was not that impressed with this book. I had a hard time buying into Sue's character. She came off as weird and awkward, which I guess was the point but I could not get into their sexual encounters. Overall its an okay story and Jim Frangione does a fair job with narration.
Good Books Don't Promote Violence
Run the Risk was my first book by Lori Foster, who knows how to create extremely engaging characters. However, it took me a while to warm up to Logan, a cop who went undercover to find the person who murdered his best friend.
While I appreciated what Logan wanted to do, I thought his methods were slimy. Logan used an unsuspecting woman (Pepper) whose brother (Rowdy) was reported to have information on the murder. Sorry, but sex should not be used a weapon against an innocent person.
Luckily, I found Pepper and Rowdy to be much more likeable, as well as some of Logan's co-workers and family. Logan seemed to regret his cruelty, which I thought Pepper forgave much to fast, making the happy ending seem too rushed to me.
I think the plot was good, and I listened to all the other series, and I think this one had the least sex in it.. so all in all it's a keeper
I have 3 kids that occupy all the TV's in the house...enough said...addicted to audiobook ....shhhh don't tell my husband ;-)
I'm kind of surprise by the high reviews, I am very sorry I wasted a credit on this book because it bored me to sleep....literally! Given the plot line of mystery and murder ect... it was not action packed at all, very slow paced, nothing happens until after the 4 hour mark. I have listen to Jim Frangione before and he is not a bad narrator, but I don't think he was a great choice for this book. I say pass on this one, unless you have insomnia and need to be put to sleep. I just could not believe how boring this book was.
