Review by: Tiger Lily
Free spirited actress Liz Aspen can't resist masturbating to the fantasy of her gorgeous, hunky next door neighbor. If he were only there in the bedroom with her, she wouldn't need Mr. Fake-Nine-Inch-Cock.
Sam Bolt, loner and secretive undercover cop, gets an eyeful when he accidentally spies on his neighbor from his window to hers. It's a shame what she's doing to herself--when he could do it much better!
Their lives entwine when he saves her life, but she's in further danger when his past meets his present. Sam hates the pain he's caused, but can't stay away from her. He craves the promise of a normal life with a soft, willing woman like Liz who doesn't have to fight tortuously dark demons.
Addicted to his powerful lovemaking, Liz finds him as compelling as she is confused by the mystery of what he's not telling her. Will she still love him when he finally tells her the whole truth? Can Sam accept that his past actions don't need to destroy a future with a woman who has proven her strength--emotionally and physically?
He’s her fantasy lover. He’s also an undercover cop. She’s the object of his dirtiest desires. She also lives in the next building. What happens when they finally meet? Read Undercover Lover and find out.
Ms. Quinn writes a fascinating novel. Her characters are rich with intrigue and are easy to root for. The situations are ripe with detail. They pull you into the story from page one.
I liked the complexity of the relationship. You could feel the passion between Sam and Liz, but not without some struggles. Both characters carried baggage that the reader could and can relate to. She’s just out of a loveless relationship and he’s dealing with a past he can’t control, but takes responsibility for. I liked that he came to her, although he couldn’t understand his internal issues – the issues of the heart. Who really understands love, anyway? It made me want to help Sam all the more.
A really good romance novel also shows a growing love between the characters. The love scenes are not only filled with passion, but trust. The pages practically combusted with the heat of their lovemaking. I came away from the story with the characters still in my head.
If you want a sexy read for a lazy afternoon, then Undercover Lover is the novel for you. I give this novel 4 ½ cherries.
