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....
Bare It All had all the elements I enjoy from any Lori Foster book…it had sexy guys with guns, danger, and passion, and if there’s one thing I can say for certain about Lori Foster’s books is that they are always steamy!
While Bare It All was certainly an enjoyable read, it is a long book, and at times it felt like I wasn’t making any progress with it. We do got a lot of story, a lot of it felt like setup for the next book, which I’m guessing will be Rowdy’s, but we do get the back story into Alice that I know I wanted to get. I enjoyed the moments where Reese and Alice spend time together. They were really attracted to each other from the start and every time they were intimate, it was easy and it was STEAMY. They had a few things to work through, and Alice had a little trouble opening to Reese at first, but eventually they got it together. I think Reese was the perfect male for Alice. He was tough but sensitive. Kind of like a big teddy bear. :) And I certainly didn’t expect Alice to be doing the things she was doing. This girl has balls! LOL
The danger didn’t feel as high-stakes as the previous books I’ve read in this series, but there was still a fair amount of it to count. I’m also very curious to see what the conflict will be in the next book as the setup wasn’t too clear on that direction. I liked how this was a sort of mash-up with the Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor series. I had actually forgotten that Alice was in Trace of Fever, which is my favorite book of that series. There is a cameo from Trace of Fever that I loved. I’ll keep a mystery for you guys though. ;)
So if you’re looking for a steamy romance with some action, pick up Bare It All!
