First Thought When Finished: Bare It All had Holy hot undercover cops! *SWOON*
Story Thoughts: The first thought I had when I finished book 1 in the Love Undercover series was I need this book! See I was a huge fan of the Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor series and I liked the idea of combining characters from both. IT WORKED! Seriously y’all, this story really did meet my Romantic Suspense expectations. The case was fast paced, the action was gnarly, and the romance wasn’t too rushed (especially if you read book 1). I read this in one afternoon and now I am
patiently waiting on the next one: ROWDY! (said in my best Rocky voice)
Character Thoughts: I adore the characters in Bare It All! Alice is one complicated chic: secretive, overly armed, and good with dogs. What is not to love about that? I mean if ever there was a leading lady built to hook up with a police officer it is her. Reese is her match in every way. He just FITS! Oh, he is sexy as hell and at times has that “swagger” that alpha male types do BUT he is also patient, kind, and uber swoon-worthy! We get all the other characters we have grown to love. We get to check back in with Pepper and Logan. I giggled at their banter and Logan’s “healing. Dash is there too and I think I see that romance in the making. Did I mention that I might have a thing for Rowdy. We get to swoon over him next!
Final Thoughts: If you love sexy undercover cops then I think you just might enjoy this series as much as I do 🙂
During her non-reading time you can find her hanging with her rescue furr children named after book characters: Lizzie a beautiful cattle dog mix (Pound Pup), Cinder a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Pound Pup), and Minerva a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Foster Fail). Gathering with friends and family, attending conventions, watching movies/tv shows, rooting for the 49rs, and crocheting.
