Another Keeper from Lori Foster.

Bare It All is following Reese Bareden (introduced in Run the Risk), a sexy, capable alpha male who’s keen interest in his prim and proper neighbor Alice has all his protective and possessive instincts coming to light. Being a cop and knowing how to read the signs, Reese is determined to find out what has a fragile little thing like Alice running so scared.

Lori Foster definitely knows how to write a sexy and exciting story, with a dream guy that can hold his own - who that protects what’s his against all odds - and a woman that you can’t help but root for.

Alice has some dark things in her past that have taught her to never let her guard down and to always be prepared. The guilt that consumes her is real to her and I really felt for her and her struggle to move on. Reese is a complication she didn’t see coming and it was a sensual journey of self discovery and acceptance that had me reading until the very end. Alice, with the help of Reese finally starts to really overcome her fears and insecurities. I love the fact that hard core Reese is thrown upside down at every turn by quiet and unassuming Alice. She proves that looks can be deceiving and it keeps Reese on his toes around her. I enjoyed the range of emotions Alice experienced throughout the book, she really came to life for me as a character. Of course, Reese and his irresistible charm (both emotional and physical) added to the burning chemistry that sparked a hot wire between them.

A lot of times in romance novels the male, the female or both deny the emotional intensity between each other. I hate when they chock up the emotional intensity as ‘just great sex’! It was refreshing to read a direct, no beating around the bush way to love for these two. Another plus for Lori Foster, her heroine was not completely helpless, she was smart and resourceful from the get go and (Spoiler!) stays that way throughout the book.

For die hard fans of Lori Foster this one is another keeper. If you are into the strong alpha male protecting his not so helpless female than this is one you definitely want to check out. After all you can’t go wrong with a kick ass, exciting plot that has a smoking hot hero, a courageous heroine, a healthy dose of danger, mystery and a beautiful love story. Throw in the steamy bedroom scenes and the adorable Cash and this is another favorite on my keeper shelf.

* * * If like me you were hooked on unpredictable and hunky Rowdy Yates from Run the Risk (the 1st book in this three part series), you’ll love the teasers that will wet your appetite for more of him in this installment. Look for Rowdy’s book – Getting Rowdy, out Sept. 2013 – to find out more about him and feisty Avery. I will be pre-ordering that . . . right now!

## First, let me say I'm a huge Lori Foster fan. That being said, I hated this book. Alice was freakish and Reese was just plain weird. They had zero chemistry, sexual or otherwise. And the dog received more page time than the hero. Ugh, and the secondary character Rowdy was a man-whore pig. I can't believe after that douchebag move with Avery, Lori is writing them their own story. I won't be buying it. Skip this one.

    I am a Lori Foster fan, but this book was awful.  Boring, strange characters and awkward conversations.  I would not recommend.

    Disappointed

    I wanted to like this book because I really liked Reese and was intrigued by Alice after reading the first book. Unfortunately, the way the romance was developed between the characters just didn't work for me. Given all the issues Alice obviously has at the beginning of this story as well as the strange way she talks and interacts with the other characters, Reese's intense attraction (and near-constant state of physical arousal) comes off as kinda creepy rather than romantic. I'm all for lust and hot sex, but IMO, Alice just wasn't at a point when she should have appealed so strongly to a normal guy.

    I give Lori Foster credit for creating an unusual heroine. Alice is an interesting character who deserves her happily ever after. If some of her issues had been resolved first, this story would have been a lot better. I like that she wasn't your typical heroine, but she was a little too strange to be a credible romantic lead.

    In one word muddy,and befote the end tedious. I usually find fosters work engaging, but this book rambled around with no clear direction. I gpt ywo thirds of the way through it and just gave up.

    Alice Appleton had been mixed up with a human trafficker, escape

    Alice Appleton had been mixed up with a human trafficker, escaped and then lived in fear of being found and the pay back. She keeps everything about her past hidden, but that is really hard when her friends are trying to be so nice and helpful and then she gets involved with Detective Reese Bareden. The story itself was really interesting and exciting but I found the first 20% or so confusing.  I think this was mainly because I kept getting Reese and Rowdy confused (their names are too similar). I had no idea which one actually owned the dog!




    I really liked Rowdy but I had already read Getty Rowdy and liked it a lot so I thought I would like this one too, but no. 
    Reese was a well developed character who was very serious about his job as detective, very kind and thoughtful. I didn't like Alice at all. She was so strange, with reason. But she was just odd and I couldn't relate to her. All she ever seemed to want was to have sex with Reese.




    I felt like I missed a book about Alice since there were so many hints about her secrets that I just didn't know about. I thought it was odd that the men were always taking their shirts off. The author seems to have a thing about men's bodies and bare chests.
