UNDERCOVER—AND UNDER THE COVERSThe brutally handsome stranger in the black leather jacket wasn't exactly the kind of man Jayne Barrington encountered in her world of wealth and privilege. But that scarcely mattered now, because he'd just dragged her into his world—at gunpoint! Boone Sinclair claimed she'd stumbled into an undercover investigation of a murderous drug cartel. And the only way he could keep her alive was to convince the real criminals he was keeping her prisoner—for his personal "pleasure." It wasn't easy playing hostage to this man's passion.

In Bed with Boone based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
Jayne Barrington, a US Senator's daughter, stumbles upon a drug deal while on a blind date. The criminals shoot (and she thinks, at least for a while, kill) her date and take her prisoner. Fortunately for her, one of the "criminals" is actually a private investigator, who takes her under his wing and protects her.I expect romance novels to be brain candy instead of brain food (especially with a title like "In Bed with Boone"), but even with that mindset, this book was just too ridiculous for me to enjoy. The female protagonist was unlikeable with her haughty, prim-and-proper attitude. While the male protagonist was okay, the supporting cast was obviously composed of complete idiots. For some reason, three drug dealers believed that a woman could go from being raped at night to calling her rapist "BooBoo" in the morning and enjoying it. Fortunately for the couple, the three really were stupid enough to believe it (although the one did question that for a brief second).I started tuning out after that. Fortunately, the book was a quick read.
