Charismatic bar owner Rowdy Yates isn’t the kind of man women say no to. So when he approaches waitress Avery Mullins, he fully expects to get her number. However, the elusive beauty has her reasons for keeping her distance-including a past that might come back to haunt them both.
Avery spends her nights working for tips…and trying to forget the secret Rowdy is determined to unearth. But when history threatens to repeat itself, Avery grows to rely on Rowdy’s protective presence. As the sparks between them ignite, she will be forced to choose between the security she’s finally found…and the passion she’s always wanted.
Finally! I’ve loved Rowdy Yates since the end of the first book in the Love Undercover series, Run the Risk. I know, Rowdy was introduced a lot earlier in the first book, but he was kind of a shady character until you got to know him. I’m so glad he got his own book and I’m even happier that Getting Rowdy was everything I expected.
Avery was introduced in the second book in this series, Bare it All. I liked her from the first time she met Rowdy. She had spunk, wit and she was obviously caring and beyond the corruption that shrouded the bar where she worked. It’s one of the reasons that Rowdy kept her around when he bought the place. In Getting Rowdy we also found out that she had a secret.
As with the rest of the books in the Love Undercover series, a lot happened. There was a lot of action, a fair amount of heartbreak, more than a little misunderstanding and denial (especially on Rowdy’s part) and just enough heat and romance to keep things interesting. Through it all though there was that sense of loyalty, honor and a very strong sense of family. Rowdy has always been slow to trust, but he’s coming around and in Getting Rowdy he was given even more reason to. Yep, there were more than a few surprises in this one. Rowdy has turned into one of my favorite characters in this series for a lot of reasons.
Readers were also treated to more Alice, Reese, Logan and Pepper. We were also introduced to some new characters that are sure to keep things interesting in future books. The next book in this series is Dash of Peril. Hmm… I wonder who this one features? If you’ve been following the series, I bet you can guess. 😉
