The thing I love and adore about Lori Foster and her books is the great characters she creates. They are likable, easy to relate to, and very easy to fall for. Her books go down like smooth, aged whiskey and gives you the same exact feeling---all tingly and warm.
We finally get Rowdy Yates. Well...at least, we finally get his story.
I fell hard for Rowdy in book one of Lori Foster's Love Undercover series. He was mysterious, a bit of a bad boy, and he got under my skin.
And with each book, Lori tempted me with Rowdy's prowess. This bad boy really is a softie at heart. He's loyal, protective as hell, and downright sinful. But he isn't the type of male who hangs around afterwards. Nope--he beats feet out the door faster than a gal can say 'I need some cuddle time'.
But Avery Mullins, the sexy bartender at Getting Rowdy, is giving the male a serious case of blue balls. Their sexual attraction is combustible, but Avery doesn't want to be another notch in his "belt", and keeps Rowdy at arms length--a place that Rowdy isn't comfortable being at.
Not used to being told no, Rowdy takes it all in stride, saying that if Avery won't be his "first", another woman will happily take her place.
But their close association makes the heat between these two sizzle off the pages.
And someone has to give in...right?
And as usual, Lori leaves me wanting another book to quickly follow. She introduces a very promising male named Cannon, who lends a hand when all hell breaks lose. And he has all the signs of being just as sexy as Rowdy: He's sexy, protective, and very mysterious.
Please, please, please let there be a future story for Cannon, Mrs. Foster.
Getting Rowdy is easily my favorite book in the Love Undercover series and Rowdy has become one of my favorite heroes. Foster delivers(as usual) a sexy read with a twisty plot and great characters that you can truly care about.
