A new romantic suspense series by Lori Foster, cue squeeeees of excitement!!!  After enjoying Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor so much, I was starting to feel the void of her sexy alpha men.  RUN THE RISK delivered on alphas with an exciting story that captured my interest from the beginning and never let go.

The plot

I actually enjoyed the change of pace with the type of suspense in this series.  This wasn’t so much human trafficking and more undercover detective work.  Still plenty of suspense, still bad guys who may not really be the bad guys, and quite a bit of action.  The twists and turns in the story kept it refreshing and kept me interested.  I really couldn’t keep up with guessing what would happen.  I also enjoyed that people were never what they seemed.

The characters

Logan Riske is so hot and delicious.  I can totally picture him lounging around, no shirt, jeans hung low on his hips, comfortable barbequeing and drinking a beer.  Casual and cool.  And extremely hot.  He wants to do the right thing, which is why he’s still investigating and doing his undercover work.  He wants to catch the guy who killed his friend.

Pepper Yates was a bit of a surprise for me.  It was almost like having two of her in the book.  The original Pepper and the new and improved.  I think I liked both in their different roles.  First mousy with a hint of bold.  Then bold with a hint of vulnerable.  She loves her brother and takes risks for him.  But she also takes risks with her heart and lets Logan in.

The extra

Of course, I always love a good side story and secondary characters.  Reese and Alice have a little connection there but Reese (Logan’s partner) has a lot on his plate to pursue anything.  I enjoyed them both a lot and can’t wait to read their book next. Of course, my bad memory, I don’t remember Alice but apparently she’s from TRACE OF FEVER.  Must revisit that book before her story comes out in BARE IT ALL in April.

I loved this one. Foster’s always a great read, isn’t she? I’m dying for his brother’s book 🙂

I really didn’t remember Alice either but grabbed up Trace of Fever and sure enough there she is (towards the end).

Glad you enjoyed it too!

Maria, hope you get to read it.

Timitra, if you’ve liked her work before you’ll enjoy this one!

Anna, She is! I’m going to have to cave and go through Trace’s book. I have the audio so it’s harder to skim. Glad you enjoyed it as well.
