There isn’t much I don’t like about Ms. Castille’s writing, and Barely Undercover (Legal Heat Series, Bk. 2.) was no exception. Our hero, James is scorching hot and I really liked him. He walked away from our heroine, Lana, a few years ago to take an undercover assignment and it has badly hurt Lana, more than the poor girl was already damaged. There were some moments of sheer insanity when I wanted to punch James straight in the junk (men are so damn clueless) and my heart broke for Lana, who was a strong and amazingly resilient character. These two have had some pretty traumatic events take place in their pasts and it has made them gun-shy about a commitment to each other but they can’t deny that they burn for one another whenever they are close. You can expect some pretty explosive sex, so hot that my fingers singed holding my reading device. Their chemistry is combustible but the feelings they have for one another are beautiful and moving. I had a few laugh out loud moments and a few other moments that brought me to tears. There is a seriously twisted bad guy and a plot twist that shocked the socks right off my body. I have to admit, I cringed at some of the violence in this book, so if graphic violence isn’t your thing, this book may not work for you. I think it added to the plot more than it took away from it and further grabbed your attention and sucked you into the story deeper. You can expect to be intrigued by some of the secondary characters, as well. There were a few that I am dying to read their stories, particularly Ryder, a member of the MC club James belongs to. Overall this was a great book, full of twists and turns, lots of suspense, a pretty original plot, and a beautiful happily-ever-after. This is a series you don’t want to miss and Barely Undercover is a solid 4 star read!

With passion at full throttle, there’s no turning back...
When private investigator Lana Parker follows a dangerous biker into an underground sex club, James Hunter is the last man she expects to see. But there he is, all dark looks and chiseled charms, ready to break her heart all over again.
Danger is the name of the game for an undercover cop. And the last thing James wants is for the fiery beauty to come anywhere near the notorious biker gang he’s trying to take down. Yet Lana has no intention of giving up her case, which means he’ll have to keep her close to keep her safe. A risky proposition–especially when their blazing sexual chemistry reignites an unforgettable passion.
But when a dark terror emerges from the past, Lana goes on the run…and James gives up everything to save her. Backed into a corner, Lana must face her fears, including the one thing that frightens her most…her overwhelming feelings for the man whose searing glance sparks her most hidden desires, the man she should not trust, but cannot resist.
Warning: The book contains violence, heavy swearing, motorcycle sexytimes, bad-ass biker naughtytimes, and an exceptionally hot hero who will get down and dirty anywhere but under the covers.
