The Undercover Playboy (Captured by Love Series #3) by Miranda P. Charles

He cannot let love get in the way of work.

Undercover detective Carter Garrett is required to play the role of a cash-strapped playboy to solve an important case. When Cassie Stephens, his sister's beautiful friend, starts working in the art gallery owned by a suspect, his growing feelings for her threaten to blow his cover. He mustn't let Cassie in on the secret. It could ruin his team's best chance at catching a group of criminals whose leader could very well be Cassie's new boss. But when Cassie gets embroiled in the case, his heart joins in on the action--a dangerous situation he cannot allow to persist.

Her work places her in his way.

Cassie Stephens is ecstatic to land a high-paying job with perks anyone would envy. To her further delight, her new boss has business dealings with the charming Carter Garrett, her flatmate's hunky brother. Things between her and Carter heat up with surprising speed. But being aware of Carter's playboy ways, she orders herself not to dream of a future with him... until her new boss shares a secret about Carter she wasn't at all expecting. What was more, her incredibly kind boss insists on helping her win Carter however way she can...

Cassie has been crushing and dreaming on Carter (her flatmate's brother) for months but Carter doesn't do relationships, he's a playboy (or so she thinks) and anyway her life is too busy at the moment but perhaps a one-night stand to get him out of her system? Relationships are difficult when you're an undercover cop, you have to be careful who you tell the truth to; you have to worry about your cover being blown and also whether it could put people you care for in danger. When his latest investigation is where Cassie works he can't tell her the truth as it might effect how she reacts with her boss and colleagues. He should stay away from her but when she hits on him, he just cannot resist her. Good characters with an unseen twist to the plot. Strong language. I received a complimentary copy of this book and chose to give an honest review. I was not compensated for my review, and I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed here is my own.

Great series

Friends and verbal sparring mates Carter and Cassie' agreement to a one night stand seemed like an awesome idea. For Cassie, it'd help work Carter out of her system, give her one night of memories of a man she felt she could never really have. For Carter, it would be a night of making love to a woman who captivated him like no other ever did and probably never would. No matter how badly he wanted to explore the attraction between them, he knew he couldn't offer more than a night because doing so had the potential of putting her in danger due to his line of work. As an undercover police officer, Carter's work put him in situations that would/could make the woman he was dating/married to question his feelings for her. While I wish I could say Cassie was better than that, the truth was she wasn't. She did doubt Carter. She wondered if he was playing her (his playboy tenancies didn't help any), if he was all lip service, all charm and no substance. I didn't blame her. Truthfully, she was human. That relationship and everything she felt was new to her. She might've lusted after someone before, might've been in a relationship before, but what she had and felt for Carter were so much more, so much deeper. His latest assignment proves that it is more than lust and one night for both of them because Carter does what he doesn't want to do to ensure her safety: he breaks things off with Cassie, tells her he doesn't love her, sends her away without so much as a wave goodbye. Let me tell you, he played his part well. My heart broke along with Cassie's when he said those things to her. While she walked away with tears in her eyes, I wanted to deck him. The truth of his feelings came after that moment. Not that his earlier declarations of love didn't mean anything, but she needed something to remind her that not everything with Carter wasn't what it seemed. That photo of them together and his written love for her was the reassurance she needed and what she held onto until his assignment came to a close. Ms. Charles' penchant for emotional writing (plus fantastic characters) is why I keep reading what she writes. Every story penned is an adventure that is different from others she's written. And don't worry. If you haven't read anything by her yet and want to start with this book, you won't need to read the others to know what's going on. It's a great story for a lazy afternoon or a quiet evening that's light on the suspense and mystery but beautifully and wonderfully heavy on the romance.

The Undercover Playboy by Miranda P. Charles is the third book in her Captured by Love series. A steady-paced romance filled with twists and secrets that will have you flipping the pages as fast as you can. Cassie has a crush on Carter but they're just friends. He is her roommate's brother and nothing will ever happen between them. Besides, he is a playboy. When she starts a new job at an art gallery the unlikely happens... Carter is not a playboy, he is an undercover officer who often uses his skills as an electrician as a cover for his detecting job. No one but his family knows what he does, it's safer for his cover and his friends if he keeps it that way. That is part of what makes him and Cassie an issue, especially now that she is working at the art gallery that's part of his current investigation. This is the third book by this author that I have read and the third book that I have loved. Miranda P. Charles is fast becoming a go-to author for me - if she writes it I will read it. Hot, steamy, twisty and awesome.

Cassie is a strong, confident woman working to further her career at an organization that appreciates her. The one things she struggles with is love. Her roommates brother, Carter, has captured her heart but he is a playboy. When Cassie gets a new job and Carter is contracted to work at her new firm, they suddenly find themselves crossing paths more often but can Carter commit to one woman? Carter is a complex man since his job as an undercover agent puts him in unique situation of lying to most everyone about what he does. Most everyone believes he’s an electrician that plays the field but they don’t realize many of these "dates" are related to cases he is working on, not actual dates. He really likes his sister's new roommate Cassie but will his job get in the way of any romance they might have? When his job puts him directly in Cassie's path, he might find that protecting her becomes his biggest challenge. A wonderfully sexy, fun and sweet romance with a great level of suspense as we unravel Carter's case.

Full of danger, suspense, twist, turns and secrets Miranda P. Charles keeps you on your toes with this read. Each character is a well developed pawn in a world of mystery and manipulation. Carter is not what he seems. His secrets serve as a barrier, preventing him from pursuing a relationship. Cassie's infatuation with Carter could become dangerous and put her in harm's way. Things become even more complicated when Cassie accepts a job that does just that. Now Carter must protect the woman he secretly loves without breaking his cover. Intricately woven plot twists, intriguing characters and great writing make The Undercover Playboy by Miranda P. Chase a cool and entertaining read. I received an ARC for an honest review.
