Title: Under Cover
This book is an anthology of three short stories which are linked together and written by the same author. The first starts out with Renee Jardin, a feisty head of security at a biotech firm who is on the run because the firms leading medical project was slipped into her purse. While fleeing from her own staff she unknowingly runs into the very person who is trying to find her. The second story deals with one of the biotech’s security personnel Peter Random and Lori Jamieson, a damsel in distress who, and I’m still not sure how, knows of him. Her stepfather and his son will do anything they can to get their hands on her inheritance money. The only thing standing between her and them is Random. The third story deals with the genius of a scientist Thea, who invented the medical breakthrough ‘stolen’ in the first story. She and her staff are unsure of their future as their biotech company has just been purchased by boy genius Jimmy. When he comes in wearing a cap, things really start to get interesting.
I love this book. Each story was unique and different from each other. Even though the humor is the same throughout the entire three stories, I didn’t feel like I was reading the same character in every one. Both male and female characters had emotion and physical hurdles to overcome not only to be together in the end, but for the story to finish and to emotionally grow on their own. Although there are several sex scenes in each story, they progressively got better the further into the book you read. The first story is little more then description of foreplay and the actual sex skipped over, the second story provides the same brief information on foreplay and the sex while the third one, and I don’t know if it’s because of the day dreaming, provides a bit more description and the scenes are longer.
Over all I give this book a 4 out of 5 for storyline/romance and a 4 out of 5 for bedroom steaminess.
