A cop's craving to know about the woman next door could prove fatal in the steamy new novel from New York Times bestselling author Lori Foster As the person responsible for taking down a brutal human trafficker Alice Appleton fears retaliation at every turn No on. Was really weird Im not Sure If Was Because if it was
because skipped the first book or something but i was really The skipped the first book or something but i was really The mentions her bringing down traffickers so i thought that was why she was on the run but that apparently happened immediately preceding this bookso whats her deal Why does she talk like ancient greek prophetesses who were always hopped p on opium she talked like a cross between psychic and psychiatrist with someone who seemed to be little better than total strangeryet im supposed to believe she has this traumatic past and trusts no one get your story straight Then theres the hero he mentions that she mostly gave him the cold shoulder before he got his dog and he didnt even know her last name so i think its safe to assume they didnt have much of a relationship in the last book Yet in this one he kisses her once then seems to think that means he can mark his territory when he sees another guy in her apt I mean seriously dude just piss on her leg why dont you its not any less subtle at the end of the day this was just weirding me out and i couldnt get into it so i it while i was only a little behind DNFUpdate welp this just goes to show you should always check goodreads before starting a book I started this and it seemed so familiar but i figured id just read the first chapter somewhere I did finish it thistime but I didn t like it any better I liked the plot idea but the execution was miserable Alice was so freaking needy I nderstood it given the circumstances but it was super annoying as a person and romantic lead Reese on the other hand was so obnoxiously perfect for most of the book It was just nrealistic He was nderstanding and slow moving and good at everything He refused to trust the heroine though while demanding her trust This book was very clearly a seuel which I did not realize and that resulted in a lot of confusion while for example I tried to piece together why Alice was letting Rowdy a total stranger into her apt when hshe s supposedly so scared of everything The narrative was way too much tell Like the author just put so much The Ascent of Man unnecessary stuff in there The blurb is also deceptive as Alice in no way fears anything as the human trafficking ring she brought down is dead Definitely not one i d recommend The setpThis story picks The Grand Sophy up the next day after the end of the previous book where Alice Appleton Reese Bareden s mousy next door neighbor saved his life along with his partner Logan Risk and his boss Lieutenant Margaret Peterson Reese s apartment is now a crime scene and he has no choice yeah right but to sack out on Alice s couch As strange as Alice behaves Reese is drawn to her physically and emotionally even though it is obvious that she is hiding from something or someone What worked wellReese is 6 and feet of blond green eyed brawny male and makes no bones about what he wants from Alice and can t help but feel protective of her She is also very much attracted to him but something from her past experience is holding her back but not for too long Throughout the story you could feel that something was brewing and knew Alice s past would inevitably crash around them and converge with Rowdy Yates plans to enter into a risky business venture involving people connected to her past Rowdy is Logan s soon to be brother in lawWhat fell shortWhile this is an interesting story it followed the same pattern as the last book The first half is a lot of back and forth between Alice and Reese as the suspense is supposed to build But it plods instead at too slow a pace The last half of the book is much exciting and I wish it hadn t taken so long to get there I also found Alice s character to just be bizarre one moment a frightened and withdrawn young woman and the next an aggressive tiger I got whiplash trying to keepp and figure her out In the end I just gave Winners Dream upThe bottom lineThere s plenty of steam andltimately lots of action I really like these characters even odd Alice the dynamics between them and the romance I plan to read the next book when it s released and recommend this one but can t round my 35 stars to a 4 because the suspense aspect just didn t meet my expectations I received an ARC from NetGalley ReeseI ve been a huge fan of Lori Foster for a long time so it really pains me to do this but this book just did not work for me First let me start with the things I likedReeseI knew I was going to love his character when I first read about him in Run the Risk and I was so happy that I turned out to be right Lori Foster definitely knows how to write a sexy alpha hero and Reese was no exception I mean he s Reese Bare It All Bareden for a damn good reason He s protective possessive and oh so sexyThe steamMsFoster has definitely not lost her touch here The woman knows how to write one hell of a love sceneUnfortunately that was all that I liked about this book So what didn E knows about her past which is exactly how she prefers ituntil 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 nmask Alice's secret.
