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.

    Story
    "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 :)

    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.

    To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.

    Story
    "Lori Delivers a Good One!"

    Logan and Pepper made this story sing. I thoroughly enjoyed the interaction between these two protagonists. The relationship between Pepper and her brother Rowdy Yates (every time I heard his name I kept thinking Clint Eastwood) had no one to rely on but each other. Rowdy and Pepper worked for one the most notorious players in the city, then they witness a murder of one of the cities prominent members sends them into hiding.
    Logan manages to find Pepper and stakes her out and manages to get through her defenses. This story sucked me in quickly, I stayed invested in this story until I finished it in one day. Well worth a credit if you like murder, bad policemen, organized crime, and a sexy detective who is a real gentleman.

    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.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Run the Risk to be better than the print version?

    First time Listening to a Lori Foster book. This book was Great. Kept you wanting to find out what is next. Loved the story of Pepper and Logan. Enjoyed the twist.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Lori Foster is great. Kept the story interesting. Make me enjoy all the caricatures. Then you want to listen to the next in the series to find out more about everyone.


    What about Jim Frangione’s performance did you like?

    "I really wanted to like this book...didn't happen"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    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.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Lori Foster again?

    Not sure. I might try one, but if it starts out this slow, I won't waste three attempts again.

    The story might prove to be ok, but I couldn't finish listening. I couldn't get excited about anything w/ the narrator being so mono toned. I'm disappointed, to say the least.

    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
