Book review: Run the Risk (Love Undercover series book 1) by Lori Foster
Run the Risk
September 25, 2012
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?
This is book 1 in Lori Foster's brand new heavily anticipated series Love Undercover! I was really excited to get the chance to read and review it. I loved her Men who Walk the Edge of Honor series so i was hoping that this series would be just as good. Logan Risk is trying to worm his way into Pepper Yates life in the hopes of finding her brother who he thinks is the key to finding out who murdered his friend 2 years ago. He won't take no for a answer in his many attempts to get her to let him in. Pepper though is also undercover but in a different way. She's hiding in plain site from the man who would easily use her to get to her brother Rowdy. Rowdy seems like a bad guy but most of the timebut he's the only person who ever loved Pepper and has looked out for her the best he could all these years. Things kind of meander along in this book at a nice leisurely pace until everyone's cover is blown. From there the pace picks up and the action portion of the book takes off. That's when i really had to sit up my seat and pay attention. I love that you really can't figure out who is the bad guy but you can speculate a lot and hang on for the ride to get your answers. It's a very exciting and crazy fun ride! You get a introduction to some great characters for the future books in Rowdy, Dash and Reese and you can see that they are going to be a lot of fun to read. Very entertaining book. I loved both Pepper and Logan. Can't wait for book 2 already! 5out of 5 Modokker Book Picks for Run the Risk by Lori Foster.
