Series: Love Undercover bk 3

Author: Lori Foster

Genre: Contemporary Romance, Romantic Suspense

An alpha hero’s attraction to the one woman he can’t have could draw him into a killer’s snare in the sizzling new novel from New York Times bestselling author Lori Foster
Charismatic bar owner Rowdy Yates isn’t the kind of man women say no to. So when he approaches waitress Avery Mullins, he fully expects to get her number. However, the elusive beauty has her reasons for keeping her distance-including a past that might come back to haunt them both.

Avery spends her nights working for tips…and trying to forget the secret Rowdy is determined to unearth. But when history threatens to repeat itself, Avery grows to rely on Rowdy’s protective presence. As the sparks between them ignite, she will be forced to choose between the security she’s finally found…and the passion she’s always wanted.

Review: I’m a huge Lori Foster fan, and as such I’ve read almost all of her books. That being said, while I’ve liked her last several books I haven’t loved them. In fact I was getting ready to take a break from her books, but I’m so glad I didn’t because I loved Getting Rowdy. It has everything in it that made me fall in love with books in the first place. Bad-Ass Heroes, and heroines who can and do take care of themselves.

When Rowdy was introduced in the first book, there was something about him that made me want more of him. When he first met Avery and the sparks flew between them I found myself wanting more of them then the actual hero and heroine of the book.

Because of the first two books we already know about Rowdy’s soft heart, but it’s really in this book that we understand the why of it.

And Avery is such a great heroine. She reminds me a lot of Luna from Just Say No Joe, one of Foster’s best books. I won’t say more than that because I want you to discover her on your own.

What I really loved about this book though was that the suspense wasn’t a major part of the story line. It didn’t fuel the relationship between Rowdy and Avery. It wasn’t the catalyst for them finally getting together. It did cause a little bit of contention between them, but because Avery is no simpering miss she takes charge in way that made me laugh out loud.

This is one of her books that I will read over and over, because it is just that good.

Grade: A

    I just got the 1st 2 books in this series, to catch up before this one comes out. I saw the cover & knew I had to have this one! Say No to Joe? was one of my favorites, too!
