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?

    "Pretty Good, slow in spots, but worth it."

    It was a pretty good read. Had bits of action and lots of internal dialogue. But left you hanging too. The pace could have been quicker and got you there a lot faster. But in the end it was fairly worth it.

    "Great Book. Great Series."
    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?

    Love Jim's voice in any book he does.

    "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.

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "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....

    "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.

    Story
    "Worth a listen"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I might, if I knew they were into light, fluffy, romantic suspense.


    What other book might you compare Run the Risk to and why?

    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.


    What aspect of Jim Frangione’s performance would you have changed?

    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.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not really.

    "Not the best Lori Foster."

    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.

    "Cop who couldn't keep it in his pants"

    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 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
