“With passion at full throttle, there’s no turning back.” When private investigator Lana Parker follows a dangerous biker into an underground sex club, James Hunter is the last man she expects to see. But there he is, all dark looks and chiseled charms, ready to break her heart all over again. Danger is the name of the game for an undercover cop. And the last thing James wants is for the fiery beauty to come anywhere near the notorious biker gang he’s trying to take down. Yet Lana has no intention of giving up her case, which means he’ll have to keep her close to keep her safe. A risky proposition-especially when their blazing sexual chemistry reignites an unforgettable passion. But when a dark terror emerges from the past, Lana goes on the run…and James gives up everything to save her. Backed into a corner, Lana must face her fears, including the one thing that frightens her most…her overwhelming feelings for the man whose searing glance sparks her most hidden desires, the man she should not trust, but cannot resist. Warning: The book contains violence, explicit sex, light bondage, heavy swearing, motorcycle sexy times, bad-ass biker naughty times, and an exceptionally hot hero who will get down and dirty anywhere but under the covers.
We first meet Lana while she investigates Rex, the dangerous leader of the Hades MC. She ends up in a very dangerous situation. To save her, James nearly blows his cover is a full patch member of the biker club. After that initial encounter, Lana hits Rex’s radar and it’s pretty much about maintaining covers at that point. She and James must continue to act as a couple to throw off suspicions. That turns out to be harder than you’d think.
I really enjoy Sarah Castille’s writing style. Her characters are vivid and lively. In Barely Undercover, the reader is immediately drawn into the story. The plot and setup are very well done. Both main characters, Lana and James aka Ice are likeable. The sexual chemistry between these two is smoking hot. So that’s a definite plus. All in all, I really enjoyed this book, but there were some down sides.
For those sensitive to violence against women, fair warning. There’s also mentions of human trafficking. Other than that, I’d recommend this book to anyone who enjoys MC Romances and Romantic Suspense.
I rate it:
