Review: Barely Undercover by Sarah Castille
With passion at full throttle, there's no turning back...
Legal Heat Series
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 BDSM, heavy swearing, motorcycle sexytimes, bad-ass biker naughtytimes, and an exceptionally hot hero who will get down and dirty anywhere but under the covers.
I really tried to like this book. I liked the premise, I thought it was interesting and I have a thing for bikers, but it just didn't do it for me. For one thing, it was just so cut and dried, so matter-of-fact, I just couldn't lose myself in the story. I love writing that flows off the page so easily, I get lost and forget I'm actually reading a book, but experiencing it. This book just didn't do that for me. I failed to connect with the characters or the story and that made it a dnf for me.
