"A cop's craving to know more about the woman next door could prove fatal in the steamy new novel from New York Times bestselling author Lori Foster"

As the person responsible for taking down a brutal human trafficker, Alice Appleton fears retaliation at every turn. No one knows about her past, which is exactly how she prefers it...until the sexy cop next door comes knocking.

Detective Reese Bareden thinks he knows what makes women tick, but his ever-elusive neighbor keeps him guessing like no other. Is his goal to unmask Alice's secrets? Or protect her from a dangerous new threat? One thing is certain: their chemistry is a time bomb waiting to explode. And with no one to trust but each other, Reese and Alice are soon drawn into a deadly maze of corruption, intrigue and desire-and into the line of fire....
Alice has a difficult past that she refuses to share with anyone, and Reese is determined to figure it out. I knew Reese wanted to know what the story was with Alice, I'm glad he chose to handle it the way he did. He didn't demand anything of her, he just let her do it in her own time in her own way. The chemistry between the two of them was apparent from the start, but I loved how Rowdy ( a character from the previous book) was thrown in the mix. Alice saw Rowdy as a brother, a confidant and it tended to piss off Reese.

The interaction and connection among all the characters was great. I loved the unity among all of them. It felt more like a family instead of friends and co-workers. Bare It All packed the right mix of suspense and romance. Reese was the perfect alpha male without being over-the-top about it. Aloce on the other hand bothered me a bit with some of the things she would do that put her in direct danger. But it was never to the point that made me loose interest in her or the story.

Definitely a series that I will be continuing and looking forward to reading more of.
