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.

Action Packed

I have always loved Lori Foster, in fact she's one of my top 5 writers of all time. Although I have to be honest....I was a little disappointed in the beginning of this book: in fact I almost gave up on it after listening to the first few chapters. But since it was a Lori Foster book, I decided to give it a little more time to develop, and boy am I glad I did! Shortly after that...this story took off like a rocket and it had me sitting on the edge of my seat right up to the very end of the story..

Detective Logan Riske goes undercover to find Pepper Yates, a potential link to his best friend's unsolved murder. And he vows to gain her cooperation by any means necessary, and that's when things start to get hot!!!

Pepper has spent years dodging the corrupt club owner who will stop at nothing to keep her silenced. She can trust no one but her brother right now, not even the handsome new "construction worker" who's moved in next door.

Even with Pepper dressing like a bag lady, it doesn't seem to be stopping Logan from being very attracted to her. But he has to keep his head on straight, if he wants to catch his best friends murderer, and finding Pepper's brother is the key to that success. If he has to use Pepper to draw him out, then that's just what he has to do.

Jim Frangione was fantastic with the delivery of the story

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.

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.

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

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.

Run the Risk

I really enjoyed all the different characters in this audiobook. I liked that I can see at the bare minimum at least two more books that could be done with the characters from this book. Well written and kept me wanting to listen.

dnf@ 25%

Admittedly, I only listened to 3 hours of a 12 hour story, so it's possible it becomes better after that mark. Still, after more than half an hour of babbling that had NOTHING to do with the story, I just gave up. In annoyance.

Terrible Narrator

The story is good but the narrators voice and reading style got on my nerves and had to stop after 3 chapters
