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 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?
I have been in love with Lori's stories since picking up Simon Says (Fighter Series, Book Two) and she is an auto-buy for me. She writes how I wish I could-with passion, emotion, flavor, pizazz, and humor. LOVE LOVE LOVE HER...
So when I saw that she was starting another series, I cried for joy. After finishing her latest series, Men Who Walk The Edge of Honor, I have been pacing restlessly for more of her books. Honestly, I haven't come across a Foster novel that I really didn't like.
Run The Risk holds true to all I have said about Foster in the above paragraphs. She writes with such style, such addictive characters, and creates a romantic hero that is not only sexy with a capitol S, but one who is loyal, fierce, and kick-ass. Her hero Logan is all of that and a bag of chips-Economy size--and yet he has a vulnerability and isn't perfect. He makes mistakes. And the biggest is when he doesn't come clean to Pepper, his next-door neighbor.
Of course, Pepper isn't squeaky clean either; she's hiding her own secrets. And despite her "plain jane" appearance, Logan can't help but be intrigued with this woman. She hides a passionate side that he wants badly to lay bare, preferably in his bed.
What follows is an extreme sexual attraction of two people who are desperate to keep their secrets just that. But as secrets are wont to do, they unravel quickly and turn out deadly.
A great romantic suspensful read with passion mixed expertly in between that will leave you wanting more of this wonderful authors books.
The next in the series, Bare It All, is expected to be released in April of 2013.
