Series: Love Undercover #1

Genres: Contemporary Romance
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?
So, normally I read the Paranormal picks for book club, but when I saw the cover for Getting Rowdy, I was like “oh hell yeah”. Being the third in the series, I am obligated to read Run the Risk and Bare It All.
I’m kind of conflicted on the Pepper. I think if they were going to go undercover, they would go far enough that she didn’t have to wrap herself up like a nun and shuffle along instead of walk. I mean, I am sure if they went halfway across the country no one would recognize her. So even though I’m not sure on the purpose of staying so close, I believe she did a pretty efficient job of staying hidden. Now Rowdy, he’s one overprotective big brother. Understandable under the circumstances but holy hell, let the girl get a little!
I’m not normally a contemporary romance reader, but I did like Run the Risk. It had a few surprises in it for me, and the progression of the romance between Logan and Pepper was really nicely done. Learning more and more about Rowdy and for some reason, I am more and more fascinated with him. Can’t wait to get to his book, although Bare It All has a mystery in it that has got me a bit hooked too. Definitely recommend for romance readers.
Read for: book club (actually book 3 is for book club but I need to read these first)
