Getting Rowdy (Love Undercover #3) by Lori Foster

Charismatic bar owner Rowdy Yates isn't the kind of man women say no to. So when he approaches waitress Avery Mullins, he fully expects to get her number. However, the elusive beauty has her reasons for keeping her distance-including a past that might come back to haunt them both.

Avery spends her nights working for tips...and trying to forget the secret Rowdy is determined to unearth. But when history threatens to repeat itself, Avery grows to rely on Rowdy's protective presence. As the sparks between them ignite, she will be forced to choose between the security she's finally found...and the passion she's always wanted.

Okay, so I'm gonna admit something right up front. Since the series started I've been all about Dash. I want his book. Bad. Like do naughty things bad. And Rowdy. Yeah, okay, he was all fine and good but I totally wasn't smitten with him like all of my friends. Until I read Getting Rowdy. *throws herself down in a girly swoon* Dammit now I totally get the whole not being able to keep your panties on around him. Rowdy, whew, yeah baby. I'm sold!

Alright, alright, serious now. I think this is my favorite from the series. Foster absolutely knocked it out of the park. Killer romance, sexual tension and some omg fan yourself scenes, a bit of action and danger. It was so easy to get lost in this one and feel like you were right there with them.

I really loved both Rowdy and Avery--he's so blast sexy in all his alpha male swagger (even if he does have some manwhore tendencies) and Avery is one kickass chick who really holds her own. I just loved how they were with each other. They're actually friends and enjoy each other and it made their relationship so much more...everything. Passionate, frustrating, fun and steamy. They just seemed to know what the other was thinking, needing, wanting and it made them so comfortable to be around. But lordy they can rile each other up something good and it really makes for a really entertaining read.
"What if one of them had been armed?"

Apparently a shrug wasn't the right answer.

"Ohmigod," she said dramatically. "You are insane. And that second group was not inebriated."

"They weren't hostile either."

"Something you didn't know until after you faced off with them." She thrust up her chin. "What did you and the hottie talk about for so long?"

Oh, hell, no. Slowly, Rowdy gave up his inspection of the lock to face her.

Bristling head to toe, he stiffened his shoulders and stared down at her with intimidating heat. "Hottie?"

The glare was wasted on her. "You know who I mean. The good-looking kid? The one built like an athlete."

Jealousy sucked, adding pure gravel to his tone. "He's only a few years younger than you, so hardly kid."

Her turn to shrug, and damn it, he didn't like it much more than she had. But when she patted his chest--presumably to reassure him-- Rowdy felt compelled to let it go.
There were a lot of threads at play in this one but it really worked nearly seamlessly and made the story just fly by because I was so engrossed in it all. The romance, things happening with the bar, the danger that seems to be lurking, the dark and painful pasts Rowdy and Avery are both hiding away and are forced to deal with. It all really worked nicely together.

While Getting Rowdy wasn't as suspense heavy as some of the others in the series it still had some nice action that got my heart pounding and had me on the edge of my seat. It was really a great backdrop for Rowdy and Avery's romance which, for me, took center stage. There were some nice additions to the cast that definitely caught my attention and have me so excited to see what's going to happen next.
