Viviana's Review: 
Let's see. Where to start? From the first time we met Rowdy in "Run the Risk (Love Undercover #1)" I was intrigued!! He was a complicated character, a protector and a man that knew that sometimes you had to get your hands dirty to get the job done.

This installment had a subtle 'action' story line compared to the previous installments in the series. It was woven in throughout the story, providing just enough action to keep the story moving at a nice pace. This allowed the reader to enjoy both the action and the romance developing between Rowdy and Avery.

I enjoyed getting to know both Rowdy and Avery better as they got to know each other better. While there was an instant physical connection between the two, they didn't jump into a physical relationship immediately. They got to know each other and were friends. Rowdy's past is revealed and we get a better understand of why he is the way he is.

Narrator Review: Jim Frangione did a really good job with the narration. He tries to provide each character with a different voice and tone and he does this better with the male characters than the females. However, it wasn't a distraction. Again, I took it more of him reading me a story vs. him acting it out.

This installment was one I had been looking forward to from the very beginning and it did not disappoint. In fact, I'll go and say it's the best book in the series. Then again, this could be due to my admiration for Rowdy. You can't blame a girl, can you? He's smart, sexy as hell, an Alpha male needing to be loved.

Rating: 4 Stars - LOVED IT!
