    ReeseI've been a huge fan of Lori Foster for a long time so it really pains me to do this but this book just did not work for me First let me start with the things I likedReeseI knew I was going to love his character when I first read about him in Run the Risk and I was so happy that I turned out to be right Lori Foster definitely knows how to write a sexy alpha hero and Reese was no exception I mean he's Reese Bare It All Bareden for a damn good reason He's protective possessive and oh so sexyThe steamMsFoster has definitely not lost her touch here The woman knows how to write one hell of a love sceneUnfortunately that was all that I liked about this book So what didn't work for me?The main heroine Alice is really what killed this for me I could not get a clear understanding of her personality at all She was so up and down she was everywhere and nowhere I got whiplash trying to keep up with the constant changes The initial hints we get about her are intriguing There's something about her It's like she's guarded Even hurt Unlike most people she's too alert too intuitive like maybe she's waiting for something to happen The reality of Alice did not live up to the hints that we get of her She is supposed to be impeccably capable of reading people due to this mysterious traumatic event that happened in her past But when it came to Reese she was like a lost puppy She uestioned everything he did and said and was always unsure of what he meant It just didn't add upThen we have the fact that at times she came off as this virginal ingenue She clearly states to Reese that she is not a virgin but the way that she acts with him when they are intimate and even other times is almost childish I take it you weren't angry?At the girls? NO They were just curious because of the size rumorsSuspicious she narrowed her eyes What rumors?Size rumorsDrawing a blank she shook her head in incomprehensionYou know am I big all over? That sort of thingYou've seen my chest before honeyShe nodded and whispered You take my breath awayIs that so?Yes Alice drifted her attention over to him It's the same as you seeing me without a shirt But then all of a sudden her personality switches to aggressive Enough foreplay I need you Only to go right back to unsure If I disappointed youjust say soDisappointed?In how I did she gestured you know in bed She also goes from avoiding sexual intimacy like a meek little mouse to being aggressive and initiating it after doing something stupid and attempting to distract from itI also didn't come to understand how a woman that is so concerned about her safety to the point that she has multiple weapons and avoids being seen by people would make the decision that she did halfway through the book view spoilerShe jumps in to what appears to be a human trafficking ring in order to rescue a young girl hide spoiler

    Reread on 30620 5 Smexy Stars After reading Run the Risk my expectations were very high and Lori Foster did not disappoint I loved Reece he's right up there with my LF faves Joe Winston Say No To Joe? Clint Evans Just a Hint Clint Noah Harper Too Much Temptation and Simon Sublime Evans Simon Says Reece is a smokin' hot alpha and bonus he’s a really good guy He’s understanding patient possessive and uber protective as all my favorite LF hero's are Alice Appleton is a fantastic heroine and I absolutely adored herI don't remember a lot about her in Trace of Fever but I admired her honestly and backbone She was tough yet venerable the way she was totally distracted and was suddenly in a lust filled foggy daze whenever Reece's bare chest was was on display was endearing and had me smiling hugeand naturally Reece caught on and used it to his advantage when trying to get information on her background from herI absolutely LOVED Reece and Alice Looking forward to Getting Rowdy I have a feeling Rowdy's going to give Reece some serious competition

    Alice Appleton took down a brutal human trafficker and now lives in fear of retaliation She keeps her past from everyone but that becomes particularly difficult when her next door neighbor Detective Reese Bareden takes a personal interest in her and her past Alice and Reese have chemistry to spare The difficult part will be finding time to explore it while involved in a deadly game of intrigueor maybe notReading a new Lori Foster book can give me such a sense of comfort and the feeling that all is right in my world Lori maintains a sort of old school writing and storytelling style that TOTALLY works for her and which I and MANY others find thoroughly charming BARE IT ALL is classic Lori Foster and I enjoyed it much than the first book in this seriesThe story itself was exciting entertaining and fun It kept me reading and it also kept me guessing what was going to happen next Just an FYI I did figure it out a few times But really even that couldn't dampen my enthusiasm of a new Lori Foster bookThe characters in this story were a lot of fun Alice is soodd and uirky Of course she has reason to be It was amusing to watch her with Reese Pepper and Logan but especially with Rowdy The relationship and interaction those two had made me smile laugh and kept me completely entertained I almost enjoyed them together than I did Alice and Reesealmost Reese is such a big teddy bear of a man Macho protective alpha with just a smidge of enlightened male mixed in Again classic Lori Foster I'm not gonna lie though The dog was probably my favorite ; If you're a lover of Lori Foster books you'll want to add this one to your collection If you're anything like me I can't wait for Rowdy's storyARC courtesy of Harleuin Books via NetGalley

    After reading the blurb i expected to really dig this book but it was really weird Im not sure if it was because i skipped the first book or something but i was really confused The blurb mentions her bringing down traffickers so i thought that was why she was on the run but that apparently happened immediately preceding this bookso whats her deal? Why does she talk like ancient greek prophetesses who were always hopped up on opium? she talked like a cross between psychic and psychiatrist with someone who seemed to be little better than total strangeryet im supposed to believe she has this traumatic past and trusts no one? get your story straight Then theres the hero he mentions that she mostly gave him the cold shoulder before he got his dog and he didnt even know her last name so i think its safe to assume they didnt have much of a relationship in the last book Yet in this one he kisses her once then seems to think that means he can mark his territory when he sees another guy in her apt I mean seriously dude just piss on her leg why dont you its not any less subtle at the end of the day this was just weirding me out and i couldnt get into it so i uit while i was only a little behind'DNFUpdate welp this just goes to show you should always check goodreads before starting a book I started this and it seemed so familiar but i figured id just read the first chapter somewhere I did finish it thistime but I didn't like it any better I liked the plot idea but the execution was miserable Alice was so freaking needy I understood it given the circumstances but it was super annoying as a person and romantic lead Reese on the other hand was so obnoxiously perfect for most of the book It was just unrealistic He was understanding and slow moving and good at everything He refused to trust the heroine though while demanding her trust This book was very clearly a seuel which I did not realize and that resulted in a lot of confusion while for example I tried to piece together why Alice was letting Rowdy a total stranger into her apt when hshe's supposedly so scared of everything The narrative was way too much tell Like the author just put so much unnecessary stuff in there The blurb is also deceptive as Alice in no way fears anything as the human trafficking ring she brought down is dead Definitely not one i'd recommend

    One of my favorite genres is romantic suspense and Lori Foster’s new series Love Undercover delivers all the elements I love; suspense swoon worthy heroes humor and enough heat to leave me sizzling We first met the characters from Bare It All in book one Run the Risk and while they each can be read as a standalone I recommend reading them in order to fully appreciate all of the characters and an overall arc threadThe tale picks up the morning after Run the Risk ends and we find Detective Reese Bareden sleeping on his neighbor's sofa His uiet sexy elusive neighbor surprised the heck out of him last night with her uick thinking and gun toting attitude and he is determined to find out about her He’s not the only one who realizes she is hiding something Reese is drawn to her on so many levels and as secrets are revealed and the plot unfolds things uickly heat upReese is a smexy noble cop through and through and I loved getting to know him The he uncovers about Alice the he is in awe of this complicated flawed and damaged woman Alice has been the victim and has taken steps to ensure that never happens again; this includes creating a wall around herself Reese keeps chipping away and she soon finds she wants to let him in The chemistry between them is sweet hot and at times hilarious Alice’s reaction to Reese’s tone body made me giggle as Reese kept saying “Eyes up here doll” It felt genuine and the fact that they had a mutual respect for each other in book one made the relationship click for me despite the rushed pace at which it unfolded We see Logan Pepper police sergeant Marge and Logan’s brother again They all helped propel the plot and added to the character connections We also see Marge in a feminine light and hints are dropped about a relationship I am hoping we get her story soon Rowdy is back as he too realizes Alice may need protecting I loved the interaction between him and Reese Rowdy has always lived in the grey area between the law and criminal world and watching him begin to trust the boys in blue was fun While he is still a ladies’ man his interesting and actions regarding Avery have me anxious for page time with him The villains are ruthless and kept the suspense and action in high gearThe romance between Reese and Alice took center stage in this tale and the other threads kept me spellbound A complicated ruthless drug lord corrupt police and a vigilante kept things interesting I love how Foster gets us up close and personal with the characters giving us a strong sense of who they are and what drives them enabling me to form attachments While there are several threads each one is well developed and kept me enthralled as she skillfully wove them together towards the climatic ending There is an overall arc and connection between the characters in each book I love that each contains a romance and complete storyline The next tale focuses on Rowdy and I cannot wait for its releaseARC provided in exchange for unbiased reviewKimba Caffeinated Book Reviewer

    2 stars And that's on a good dayHow has this book got four star rating is beyond meVery weak plot characters are as cliché as you can get them Story development is too slow and to be honest there's not much of a story and even less developmentDialogues are very poorly written No not a good read

    The set upThis story picks up the next day after the end of the previous book where Alice Appleton Reese Bareden’s mousy next door neighbor saved his life along with his partner Logan Risk and his boss Lieutenant Margaret Peterson Reese’s apartment is now a crime scene and he has no choice yeah right but to sack out on Alice’s couch As strange as Alice behaves Reese is drawn to her physically and emotionally even though it is obvious that she is hiding from something or someone What worked wellReese is 6 and ½ feet of blond green eyed brawny male and makes no bones about what he wants from Alice and can’t help but feel protective of her She is also very much attracted to him but something from her past experience is holding her back but not for too long Throughout the story you could feel that something was brewing and knew Alice’s past would inevitably crash around them and converge with Rowdy Yates’ plans to enter into a risky business venture involving people connected to her past Rowdy is Logan’s soon to be brother in lawWhat fell shortWhile this is an interesting story it followed the same pattern as the last book The first half is a lot of back and forth between Alice and Reese as the suspense is supposed to build But it plods instead at too slow a pace The last half of the book is much exciting and I wish it hadn’t taken so long to get there I also found Alice’s character to just be bizarre one moment a frightened and withdrawn young woman and the next an aggressive tiger I got whiplash trying to keep up and figure her out In the end I just gave upThe bottom lineThere’s plenty of steam and ultimately lots of action I really like these characters even odd Alice the dynamics between them and the romance I plan to read the next book when it’s released and recommend this one but can’t round my 35 stars to a 4 because the suspense aspect just didn’t meet my expectations I received an ARC from NetGalley

    Slick‘s review posted on Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews45 StarsOnce again I’m blown away by another Lori Foster story this is the second book in her newest series Love Undercover but she has a crossover from her last series Men Who Walk The Edge of Honor Our heroine Alice appears and plays a very important role in Trace of Fever but we also get to “see” Trace again and when you add him to the already hunky cast of the Love Undercover serieslet’s just say the hotness factor goes up even higher However if you haven’t read the other series you can absolutely enjoy this book as a standaloneAlice and Reese started a friendship in book one of this series Run The Risk It was a little strange and very one sided but none the less it was there I can’t even begin to explain how much I like and admire Alice She’s survived a horrible ordeal she’s tried to maintain a somewhat normal lifestyle she’s refused to continue to be a victim and she is not afraid to help other women she thinks might be in trouble She is extremely outspoken and somewhat lacking in social skills which leads to some pretty hilarious conversations I found myself totally enthralled with Reese; he’s a “by the book” police detective but in this story he proves he can see shades of gray I love how he fell so hard and fast for Alice even though it took him awhile to admit it Every day he showed her the respect and gave her the sense of peace and security she needed While he felt the need to take care of Alice he didn’t smother her and he also realized she’s pretty damn capable of taking care of herself Alice proved time and time again how good she was for Reese always giving him a soft place to land and giving him advice and understanding I absolutely loved these two characters together and what they shared both in and out of the bedroomOne of the things I always love about Lori’s series is that the secondary characters play such a big role in her stories This book is no different Reese’s partner Logan and his fiancée Pepper from book one are uite present and Pepper’s brother Rowdy play an extremely important role Besides having a huge role in breaking a case wide open Rowdy serves as a confidantsounding board for Alice Their scenes together will have you laughing mainly due to Rowdy being very uncomfortable by Alice’s uestions While most people might think her uestions are inappropriate I applaud her for trying to see things from man’s point of view We also see a very different side to Reese and Logan’s boss Lieutenant Margaret Peterson and Logan’s brother Dash stops in again as wellAs much as I enjoyed book one in this series I think Bare It All was even better for a number of reasons One we know the characters a little better and so immediately it’s easier to jump into the story Two you can’t help but love Alice After everything she’s been through she’s survived and come out stronger I simply can’t thank Lori Foster enough for writing such strong female characters Third watching Reese and Trace basically having a pissing match over Alice made my day Sorry if that sounds crude or sexist but come onwho wouldn’t want these two guys trying to figure out who can protect her better? Fourth is Rowdy from the first book I enjoyed his character now I flat out love him He’s rude crude and basically socially unacceptable but underneath it all you know there’s a really great guy screaming to get out With any luck we’ll get to see that happen in the next book Lori Foster’s Love Undercover series started off strong but Bare It All proves that it has staying power An intriguing plot line smart and witty dialog and unforgettable characters make this book one of my favorites of 2013Review copy provided for an honest review

    I must say that I loved Lori Foster's Edge of Honor series and I love this series too since it's similar DI just knew that Alice will get Reese since the first time he met her It was inevitable as the tide DI loved Alice LOVE her She's the perfect mix between ingenuity and perfectly trained specia ops agent She's not a ninja or a martial art expert but she's so observant and insightful I loved the mix Sometimes she doesn't get a clue but sometimes she just surprise everybody with something so insightful that's incredible No wonder Reese fell for her She's straitlaced because she's hiding herself view spoilerbecause she's been kidnapped for than a year by a slaver hide spoiler
