Love Undercover #1
By: Lori Foster
Released: September 25th, 2012
Harlequin



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?


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. 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.


SO, the story is as follows. Pepper is hiding in plain sight; too keep her safe from the people who are trying to hurt her and her brother Rowdy. Logan is an undercover police detective, who knows who Pepper is and is trying to get to her brother. Logan plays a contractor working at his brother Dash’s job site, all while trying to entice Pepper into reviling where her brother is. When Logan and Reese haul Rowdy in for questioning Pepper springs into action and heads off the people threatening her family. Will Pepper forgive Logan and will there romance survive.


This is the first book in the Love Undercover series. I don’t know if the story was a bit slow or I was just too eager for the action to start, but it seemed the drag a little. The romance between Pepper and Logan is hot, from the get go…until Logan has to reveal who he really is and that he knows who Pepper really is.

The introduction to a whole bunch of new characters is fantastic! I already have a couple of favorites…but right at the end we get a blast from the past! And I am so excited to see this character again.


I do love the interaction Pepper and Detective Reese Bareden! Rowdy so far is my favorite supporting character! I hope he gets his own book in the future.


Run The Risk is a good start to the new series and earns 5 stars!
