Undercover...or under the covers...?
Undercover... Undercover vice cop Russell Bridger hates his new assignment doing surveillance on the home of a suspected traitorous spy. That is, until he receives orders to cozy up to the man’s sweet, beautiful neighbor...and find a way to move in with her for the duration. But things don’t go as smoothly—or seductively—as he’d hoped when she tells him she hates cops with a passion and wants nothing to do with him, his lies, or his damn assignment.
Or under the covers...? Cops in Mary Alice Flannery’s family keep dying, and she doesn’t think she can take another shot to her heart. So when the infinitely sexy road crew guy she’s crushing on big time turns out to embody her worst nightmare, she must decide what kind of future she wants...safe and lonely, or wild and dangerous but filled with love?
I really didn’t know what to expect with this book. I got it as part of a 99¢ Naughty Nine book collection back when I first got onto Amazon Kindle, I wasn’t really expecting much. But I knew Nina Bruhns from her time at Harlequin back when I read more Intrigues and Romantic Suspense books.
This was a refreshing change from some of the raunchy books out there. It is not too over the top in the sex department and the characters really grow and have many more relationship issues than a normal fluff book does. It is not just “wham”, “bam,” “thank you mam.”
The storyline was nice and I enjoyed the action part of it as well as the falling in love part.
I was a satisfied reader. I thought this was one of the better romances I have read lately.
I received this as an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) in return for an honest review. I thank NetGalley, the publisher and the author for allowing me to read this title.
