A cop's craving to know more about the woman next door could prove fatal

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.

My Thoughts:

I loved Run the Risk and I was definitely a fan of Reese in this book so I was more than anxious to get my hands on Bare It All. And can I say, I freaking LOVE Lori’s covers! I don’t where Harlequin finds these cover models but they are so ruggedly handsome I swoon over each one.

So we got a little preview in the first Love Undercover book of Reese and Alice. Reese is constantly trying to talk to her but is consistently ignored until he brings home a puppy that was left for dead in the middle of the highway. Apparently this was the ice breaker for Alice who immediately took to the dog. Seeing his in, Reese uses the dog to get closer to Alice. He definitely has the opportunity to get closer when the event from the end of Run the Risk has him sleeping on her couch. But neither of them are complaining. Sooner rather than later they start doing the horizontal tango but even though they have shared this intimacy, Alice still has reservations about sharing some of her secrets. One thing leads to another and she decides it’s time to tell Reese what he has been dying to know and in walks in a character from another beloved Foster book. I love that connection! It made me smile.

I wasn’t sure how I was going to like Alice for Reese. As a person, she seems super sweet and a little na├»ve. But the more I read, the more I really started to like her. I felt like she was a flower that was blossoming in front of my eyes. It cracked me up that she would have no issues openly checking him out. I never would have expected someone like her to do that. I think that was my turning point with Alice. She may be prim and proper but she’s passionate about something, she goes for it. No matter if it puts her life in danger or not.

Reese Bareden. Detective. Check. Tall. Check, check. Alpha male. Check, check, check. Dropping panties now. Check, check, check, check. I am a sucker for a cop but add in the tall and alpha male factors and I am all over that like white on rice. Oh and let’s not forget that he has the body of a god. I don’t blame Alice for her blatantly checking him out. But he is more than just good looks. We see him wanting to protect Alice and see that he wants to be around her and make her smile. He is an all around good guy. A type of guy that any woman would be beyond lucky to have.

Definitely check this series out if you haven’t already. You could read this book without reading the first but you will miss some of the things that went on previously and this book picks up directly after. And don’t worry about if you will like the first in the series. It’s awesome! I can’t wait to read more in this series. I can’t get enough!
