All Alice Appleton wants is to close herself off from the world. Her own experience as a victim in a human trafficking case makes her live with a touch of fear yet a need for revenge. Det. Reese "Bare It All" Bareden is a big, handsome distraction who lives in the apartment next door. Alice comes out of her protective shell to incorporate Reese's police expertise with her insider knowledge as she continues to rescue young girls who are often stolen from the streets. Reese and Alice display a volatile mixture of professional shrewdness, personal vulnerability, and spontaneous lovemaking, which keeps the pages turning.
VERDICT Bare It All is the second book is the "Love Undercover" series, following Run the Risk. Unfortunately, the choppy dialog distracts from plot development. Readers may also tire of Reese's and Alice's introspective and wandering thoughts about their budding relationship.
