Synopsis



When Detective Logan Riske goes undercover to find Pepper Yates, a potential link to his best friend's unsolved murder, he vows to gain her cooperation by any means necessary. But the elusive beauty is more suspicious—and in far more danger—than he expected. And the last thing Logan needs is to start caring for her….

Pepper has spent years dodging the corrupt club owner who will stop at nothing to keep her silenced. She can trust no one, not even the handsome new "construction worker" who's moved in next door. The heat between them is undeniable. But will surrendering to passion bring her the safety she so desires—or will her feelings for Logan draw them both into a killer's crosshairs?

Ms. Foster writes fast paced books that are enjoyable yet never very serious. This would be a good vacation read because it is fun and sexy.

True to many of Foster’s stories, she really knows how to write a leading male. Foster knows how to write romance well, so it’s safe to say that you will not be disappointed in Run the Risk.

Run the Risk has its ups and down...It leaves the story broken in sections instead of meshing all of the elements together.

It's beautifully written and the author keeps the action lean and mean, the characters sharp and incisive, the sexual tension consistent, and surprises everyone before it's all over.
