Lori Foster: Run the Risk

Ble by her tits Perhaps she was a famous topless model r was she even the girl with the dragon tattoo Possibly she s covered in scales and turns into an armadillo at full moon now that would be a plot twist If I was Logan I d have worried that she had something extremely infectious and nasty hidden under those layers It s never explained sadlyBUT this is a game Buddy of two halvesThe first half was like this The second half was like this The novel spinsn a knife edge at the halfway point when a sting goes down and EVERYTHING changes The first half had been so very slow so pedestrian almost like walking uphill through treacle and suddenly everything and everyone changes and the story accelerates faster than a Porsche Pepper goes from a dowdy doormat to super hot badass femme fatale and has a total personality transplant Rowdy goes from controlling sniping bullying The Space Child's Mother Goose older brother to a mega protective alpha hero Logan who I had disliked intensely in the first half starts to exhibit all the expected hallmarksf a Lori Foster hero he s protective alpha growly loving caring he kind The Quotable Hitchens from Alcohol to Zionism: The Very Best of Christopher Hitchens of morphs into DareThe second half is highctane high calibre romantic suspense with almost non stop action and it s worth plodding through the decidedly unerotic first half to find the crock The Greatest Survival Stories Ever Told: Seventeen Incredible Tales of gold awaiting you Logan and Pepper do finally get their freakn fully naked and we do at long last get some sizzling hot action but it s a long time coming I have to say that Pepper has a sudden Easy Connections outburstf TSTL which had my eyes almost rolling ut f my head but it does lend to the tension as the story ratchets up in intensityI found myself liking Reese Rowdy and especially Dash and I will carry Death Threat on reading this series and the next book is set up nicely in thisne with Reese and his mysterious dog sitting neighbour AliceIt s not vintage Lori Foster but it s a great setup for what has the potential to be another winning series from her3 stars romantic suspense ARC courtesy f Harleuin via NetGalleyFor f my reviews please visit my Sinfully Sexy Book Blog This is a review f the audiobook I haven t been a big fan f Jim Frangione s narration in the past I think it is his cadence Nevertheless I love this author so I gave him another try He does a nice enough job here not a lot f differentiation and with his deep voice it is hard for him to do the women I will probably go n with the series Porter Rockwell: A Biography on audio so he wasn t awful I have always called Lori Foster my Iron Woman She doesn t receive many five stars from me but then she rarely gets less than four stars I like her Romantic Suspense they don t have me biting my nails nor give me nightmares Still they get my heart beating faster and have me creeping toward the edgef my seat The emphasis is Satire on the Romance Her stories are great and make it easy for me to identify with the heroineI usually like her characters and Detective Logan Riske and Pepper Yates AKA Sue Meeks didn t disappoint I don t blame Pepper for wanting to reveal her real personality Five years is a long time to play a role especiallyne that is the Deflower the Boss oppositef your nature I don t blame her for falling for Logan either In Hebrew magic amulets order to findut who killed his partner he is under the guise f a construction worker I ve always had a thing for a well built man in a tool belt He is trying

be far away But meeting Sue Meeks aka Pepper Yates is both the best and worst thing that could have happened to him His mission and his growing feelings for Pepper could cost him the woman as well as her lifeThere is a lot goingn in this book and it delivers n many points humor action suspense and hot sex I giggled my way through the first few chapters with the introduction f Sue aka Pepper and Logan She was so painfully shy that when faced with all the manly naked chest manliness f Logan her reactions were actually very comical However her wicked thoughts belie the buttoned up prude hiding beneath long skirts ver sized sweaters and unkempt hair She can t fathom why a man as good looking as Logan would try so hard to break down her resistance and her carefully erected barriers But when he does he certainly doesn t hold backThe relationship between Rowdy and Pepper kept me uestioning whether she was a door mat Witness to the Martyrdom: John Taylor's Personal Account of the Last Days of the Prophet Joseph Smith or just absolutely devoted to her brother He literally was Big Brother I felt that Pepper s anger directed at Logan draggedn a little too long around nine chapters I understood why she felt betrayed and angry but her idea f payback was to initiate sex and walk ut immediately afterwards The next morning Pepper would act like nothing was wrong r be antagonistic By the second round I got bored and skipped the sex scene to.

wait to read Lori writes some Ten Thousand Goddam Cattle: A History of the American Cowboy in Song, Story and Verse of the best Alpha heroes along with heroines that are their perfect fit I struggled through the first halff Run The Risk Not because Set Theory, Logic and Their Limitations of the writingr the story because I was definitely pulled into it from the beginning but from all f the secrets and lies between Logan and Pepper love these names It just about did me in I hated that Logan was kay with using Pepper to get to Rowdy While I liked Pepper s character immediately I struggled with Logan s character for this reason I wanted to like him so bad but I just couldn t get ver his intentions towards Pepper I nly knew the reason Logan was lying and using Pepper I had no idea what Pepper was hiding I just wanted to kick Loganconstantly trying to seduce Pepper to get the information he wanted UGH I loved when Pepper turned the tables The Stringbean Murders on him and he had no idea what to do Even though I struggled with Logan s character in the beginning I was immediately interested in the secondary charactersf Reese Rowdy and Dash I was so happy to see that they will each get their أساطير شعبية من قلب جزيرة العرب: الجزء الرابع own books I liked the hintf a story line between Rowdy and the waitress at the bar and hope she is the heroine in his book And I liked the little glimpse Stricken (Asphalt Cowboys, of a future story between Reese and Alice Can t waitWowwhen all the secrets and lies cameut this book just exploded and I was totally sucked in and I couldn t put it down I didn t want to leave Logan and Pepper Logan definitely made up for all The Sporty Game of his liesKristen Ashley is thenly author that I have read that has a way with her books that have you hating the Alpha male hero in the beginning and then you can t help but fall for him I didn t think Lori Foster could do anything to make me like Loganoh but she definitely succeeded because not American Yakuza II only did I eventually like himI loved him Pepper was a great heroine I just loved her character and her relationship with Rowdy She may bene Inventions That Changed the World: Working Wonders of my all time favorite heroinesJust a great story with lovable characters great HOT and STEAMY sex scenes and a great HEA I would definitely recommend Run The Risk and can t wait for

name is RiskesighARC copy provided by NetGalley and HarleuinThank you so much Having very much enjoyed Lori Foster s Edge Vertical Mind: Psychological Approaches for Optimal Rock Climbing of Honor series I embarkedn this Blood Love one fullf expectations She s always written great romantic suspense novels with incredibly alpha heroes to die for and I was expecting f the same hereI have to say I was decidedly underwhelmed by the first half f the book to the point f almost giving up EVERYONE is lying and hiding something and no ne is who they seem and they re not an easy bunch to likeBasic synopsis Pepper and Rowdy Yates are hiding ut separately after ne f them witnessed the murder f Jack Carmin Now Jack s best friend Detective Logan Riske has gone undercover trying to get close to

the apartment next door to Pepper and attempts to use his charm to get to know her better Pepper is hiding under the false name Sue Meeks and never was a heroine aptly named As her alter ego Sue Pepper is an incredibly meek downtrodden dull doormat f a woman who hides herself under DIY, Dammit!: A Practical Guide to Curse-Free Crafting over sized shapeless clothes wears not a scrapf make up and scrapes her hair back in a lank pony tailNot surprisingly she s shocked by Logan s advances towards her and they act n their attraction to each ther and have what I can nly describe as the most uninspiring and unerotic sex I think I have ever read in a modern day contemporary romance PepperSue will not let him see her naked and will not even allow him to touch her so they have sex with her fully clothed she nly removes her panties for access and it s all Civil rights, tool of communist deception over pretty uickly Shockingly Logan actually thinks this is mind blowing and goes back for Now you have to wonder whatn earth is under all those clothes Logan has seen the most identifiable part f her her face So what n earth can she be hiding under her shapeless wardrobe that would instantly give away her identity My imagination ran away with me maybe she was an amazingly famous porn star instantly recognisa. 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 suspicious and in far da.

Get back to the actionThere were two subplots to set up the next books in the series and while I came to like Rowdy eventually his detour into a restaurant where he becomes infatuated with a waitress did nothing for this story except add Cutthroat on extra reading material Now I can guess who his love interest will be when his book comesutI really liked Alice She was uiet standoffish but there was a uiet strength about her that I really enjoyed Apparently she made her first appearance in Trace An Eastern Orthodox Response to Evangelical Claims of Fever Men Who Walk The Edgef Honor Book 2 Overall I enjoyed this new series and I ll probably read the rest when they come The Claiming of the Shrew out First I have to read the restf the MWWTEoH series I just bought all the PBs yesterday

I didn t feel any connection between the Hh The Taste of Spruce Gum other than lust and their HEA was whiplash fast and trite The suspense partf the story was rather dull and definitely didn t make up for the inadeuate romance Overall this was a lackluster read that I m really glad I got free from the library Despite being underwhelmed with the series debut ther characters have promise so I might give the next book a chance Detective Logan Riske is working undercover searching for the man whom he believes was an eye witness to the murder f his best friend In She Stoops to Conquer order to find

another well written romantic suspense with an alpha hero that is sexy as sin and a heroine that is full The Dandy and Lady Penelope of surprises The near perfect blendf romance intrigue action and

priceless and had me laughing Without a doubt this is no shy meek woman She s resourceful smart and now very angry Things start to pick up and while not without flaws I enjoyed the second half much better Run The Risk is the first installment in Lori Foster s latest series Love Undercover I liked the ruse and the mystery kept me invested until the very end It s steamy hot and we are given a cast
