Logan Riske is out to find witness Rowdy Yates and bring him in so Morton Andrews can rot in jail for the rest of his life for murdering his friend, Jack Carmin. Rowdy and his sister, Pepper, have been on the run for years because in the past anyone that has even attempted to snitch on Andrews has ended up dead. Logan goes undercover living next door to Sue Meeks, who they believe is Pepper Yates, in an attempt to find out where Rowdy is.
Simple enough set up, right?
I must admit, I stalled on reading Run the Risk several times. The beginning was slow for me. Everyone was lying to everyone. The sex scenes were…oddly hot in a weird way. Logan sounded like an asshat several times when he was thinking about using Pepper, even though I knew he really wasn’t. Because you know, a good romance hero can never be a true asshat.
Once covers were blown and shit went down the action started and things got a lot better. The action and romance amped up and that’s when I really started to read and could not put my Kindle down. I can understand why people who haven’t fallen in love with any of Lori’s works might be put off by Run the Risk.
I loved Logan’s partner, Reese Bareden, and enjoyed the glimpses into his head. I’m so glad to know that Reese is getting a book of his own, Bare It All, due out in April 2013. For those of you that have enjoyed Lori’s other works, I think it’d be worth the risk to check out Logan and his buddies.
