"A cop's craving to know more about the woman next door could prove fatal in the steamy new novel from New York Times bestselling author Lori Foster"

As the person responsible for taking down a brutal human trafficker, Alice Appleton fears retaliation at every turn. No one knows about her past, which is exactly how she prefers it...until the sexy cop next door comes knocking.

Detective Reese Bareden thinks he knows what makes women tick, but his ever-elusive neighbor keeps him guessing like no other. Is his goal to unmask Alice's secrets? Or protect her from a dangerous new threat? One thing is certain: their chemistry is a time bomb waiting to explode. And with no one to trust but each other, Reese and Alice are soon drawn into a deadly maze of corruption, intrigue and desire-and into the line of fire....

My thoughts: This is the second in Lori Foster's Love Undercover series and it was just as steamy as the first one. It's also the 5th in her Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor series - a series I wasn't aware of until this book. Now I think I will have to give this other series a try! I love a good romantic suspense story and this one certainly falls into that category.

We first met Alice and Reece in the previous book, Run the Risk and this book actually picks up right after that one ends - the next morning. Reece had spent the night at Alice's - sleeping on her couch. He's well aware that she has her secrets and he is bound and determined to figure them out. And surprisingly, she finds that she wants to let him in.

I loved watching the relationship between Alice and Reece blossom into something real. The chemistry between them is so steamy and palpable - you just can't get enough of them. And then there's Cash - the dog that is responsible for bringing Alice and Reece together - I just love Cash!!!

We also get to see some of the familiar faces we met in Run the Risk - Logan, Pepper, Marge, Dash, Rowdy and Avery. I think it's the whole bunch of characters that round out this story. There are some really good scenes between Rowdy and Alice - some funny and some very touching. I'm really looking forward to reading Rowdy's story - which is the next one up. Hopefully, we will see more of Marge and her more feminine side in either that book or the next one! There are definitely some hints as to who she may be dating and I really hope I am right - what a great story that would be!

If you are reading a series that has characters that cross-over from another series - do you read them? What other series have this cross-over happening? I'm curious!

Books in this series:

  1. Run the Risk
  2. Bare It All 
  3. Getting Rowdy - due out Sept 2013
  4. Dash - due out 2014
