Barely Undercover by Sarah Castille

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Barely Undercover was a REALLY good read for me. I adored Lana’s character – she’s strong, she’s sassy, she’s vulnerable, she faces her fears as much as possible, and whether she wants to admit it or not, she loves James completely. As for James, what’s not to love? He might be an undercover cop, but he is an alpha male through and through and has no problem pulling off the biker persona. The two together are explosive.

As the story progresses, we learn that Lana has had a tough life and when she thought she had found her way out, she only ended up trading one devil for another. Eventually, she did make her escape and now owns her own PI business. Her current case hits a bit close to home and brings her face-to-face with bikers and more importantly James – the only man she ever loved and the only man who ever broke her heart when he walked away without saying goodbye. Needless to say, it was quite a shock when she ran into him (literally) and the reunion was quite amusing. As their cases intersect, Lana and James find themselves spending more and more time together. When their passions are ignited, it makes for some extremely stimulating reading. But it’s not all hearts and flowers as there is quite a bit of danger faced by both James and Lana and Lana finds herself dealing with old demons that excel at cruelty.

Although not an actual MC book, Barely Undercover is an action-packed read full of bada$$ bikers, club conflicts, illegal activities, and one surprisingly intimidating old lady (Angel + lead pipe = one snort-laugh inducing scene for me). I am so looking forward to the next book in the series and am really hoping that it’s about Jacki – that woman is a hoot and she deserves to find The One. Even though Ms. Castille’s series is entitled Legal Heat, the path that Ryder envisions for the club and the former occupations of some of the new club members could potentially fall under this heading. If not, I certainly hope she develops a spin-off series as I would really enjoy reading more about them.

I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
