Publisher's Summary

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?

    "Bk1 of L.F. new series delivers a first class plot"

    Firstly, can I say that Lori Foster is an automatic download for me as I find her books both entertaining and brilliant.

    This one is no exception, it's the start of Love Undercover series and what a great start it was. It has intrigue, mystery, secrets, suspicion and seduction and has you guessing right up 'til the end. Detective Logan is undercover to trap a witness to his best friend's murder by a gangster boss so seduces Pepper the sister of the witness but he gets much much more than he bargains for.

    It has lots of interesting characters and, although it's not erotica, it has some 'action' between the sheets and I now have to wait until Spring 2013 when Reese's (his partners) story is revealed in Bare It All.

    Worth a credit? If you like murder, mystery and all that ensues then you're gonna love this - it gets a YES from me.

    "I would take a risk on Logan for sure"
    Any additional comments?

    Logan Riske is a detective. His friend is the man that was murdered. He wants justice for his friend, but first needs to get to Rowdy Yates who has the only evidence out there. The fastest way to get to Rowdy is through his sister, so he goes undercover and moves into the apartment next door. His goal is to get to know her, so that he can find Rowdy and he can put the nightclub owner in jail.

    To Logan’s surprise, Pepper (who goes by Sue) is an intriguing woman that he finds himself attracted to, even though she wears plane Jane clothes and on the outside seems dull. Pepper / Sue is definitely reserved, but there’s sparks that leaves Logan confused. He’s conflicted between his goal of using her to get to Rowdy and the feelings he is starting to develop for her.

    The sexual tension is great as are the sex scenes. Lori always captures you from the beginning of a story and definitely help my intrigue till the very end. Loved it :)

    "Fantastic Foster"

    I really enjoyed this book, Lori Foster never fails. I am excited to see any spin offs from this book. I really enjoyed the characters and the twists and turns. This is a great example of Lori Foster's amazing talent.

    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.

    "My kind of listen!"
    If you could sum up Run the Risk in three words, what would they be?

    Deception, Death, Desire


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Pepper, she is one tough lady.


    Which character – as performed by Jim Frangione – was your favorite?

    Pepper. I always admire a strong woman.


    Any additional comments?

    It's worth your credit. This one is a keeper. I enjoyed it very much and if you agree with any of the previous reviews I have submitted then you're really going to like this one too.It has the element of a strong woman facing down danger and showing her man how a real woman can handle things.

    "It was so-so."
    Would you be willing to try another book from Lori Foster? Why or why not?

    I will try another Lori Foster book, if there's nothing else.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Jim Frangione?

    Yes, he did a good job with a good range,


    Do you think Run the Risk needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    If there is a follow up book. I will not read it...well maybe if it was free or again, nothing else to do.

    "I think it's a keeper"

    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

    "Couldn't Make It Beyond 30 Minutes"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    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.


    Has Run the Risk turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, only this author.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Absolutely none in the 30 minutes I endured.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The narrator was pleasant.

    "Good Steamy Contemporary Romance"

    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 thought it was kinda awful..."

    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.

    "terrible narration"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Story was ok but honestly would've been better with a better narrator. No emotion what so ever.
