5 Stars

An alpha hero's attraction to the one woman he can't have could draw him into a killer's snare in the sizzling new novel from New York Times bestselling author 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.

My Opinion:

Just like the first two books in the series - Getting Rowdy is a very sexy, romantic and suspensy book.

We already met 29-year-old Rowdy Yates - Pepper's brother - in the first book in the series and then of course he's in book 2 as well. 

Now he gets his own book.
And his own girl ☺ Avery.

She's working in the bar he just bought - she has been working there for a while - we already met her in the previous book - where Rowdy was flirting with her - without much success ;)

Rowdy wants her - but he's not a commitment type - he just wants sex - lots of it. But Avery is different - he could even imagine more than only one night. He never wanted that before. He spent most of his life on the run from bad people - there was never time for anything long-term - so he never felt the need to do the whole 'love thing'.

Avery is hiding something - or from someone. She gets weird hang-up phone calls at the bar - and we 'see' someone following her.

It takes a while for Avery and Rowdy to finally 'get together'. There are a few kisses and lots of sparks - but Avery is afraid that she'll be just one of many. And Rowdy is scared of feeling too much - of maybe even - falling for her!!! *HeShuddersAtTheThought* ☺

I don't want to tell you too much - I don't want to spoil anything...

there will be a few problems at the bar - someone will get hurt.
A little boy will play a part in the story
and the most important thing - we meet a new guy - cutie alert!!!!

 Avery's family will play a part in the book - she has been gone from home for more than a year - we will of course learn why  ☺
Logan and Reese - from book 1 & 2 - and their ladies will of course be in book 3 again!

there will be LOTS of sexy moments ☺

dangerous moments
(we will see those 2 hot cops from book 1+2 again!)

moving moments ♥


 but that's all I'm telling you ☺

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥


 This was - and still is - an amazing romantic suspense series! I loved ALL books and more important - ALL CHARACTERS - and that's not something that happens a lot. You always find something you can't stand - but those 4 guys here and their girls are all really wonderfully written!

This book had EVERYTHING I love in a book - sexy and romantic scenes & dangerous suspense scenes.

Rowdy is H.O.T.!!!!! Jeez is that guy good looking! Take a look at the cover of the book! I know he's not real - but the poor model guy just has to live with it now - he's my Rowdy!

And Rowdy is sooo adorable too - he's a tough - street-wise guy, who always had to take care of his little sister and he's so sweet and protective with all this friends and their girls. He never even had any friends before his sister got it into her head to fall in love with a COP - of all things ☺ And now he has a family and a new girl that he starts to have weird feelings for - feelings he never felt before!

Getting Rowdy is an amazing - sexy - suspense Romance!!

But please don't forget to read the first 2 books before reading Rowdy's story!

Now I can't wait for the next book - Dash's story - coming in March 2014 ☺
and I heard rumors that there will be a book/spin-off series about Cannon! Once he's all grown up ☺

About Lori

Since first publishing in January 1996, Lori Foster has become a Waldenbooks, Borders, USA Today, Publisher’s Weekly and New York Times bestselling author. Lori has published through a variety of houses, including Kensington, St. Martin’s, Harlequin, Silhouette and Samhain. She is currently with Berkley/Jove.

Lori believes it’s important to give back to the community as much as possible, and for that reason she ran special contests in conjunction with a publisher, facilitating many first sales for new authors. She routinely organizes events among authors and readers to gather donations for various organizations.

Along with her good friend, Duffy Brown, Lori hosts a very special annual “Reader & Author” event in West Chester, Ohio.

In 2007, Lori put together The Write Ingredients a cookbook of recipes donated by popular authors. Proceeds from the cookbook go toward Lori’s ongoing “Troop project” of collecting and mailing fun, and sometimes necessary, items to our troops.

In 2008, Lori coordinated with other authors of her choosing, and through Berkley, arranged for the publication of The Power of Love, a special romance anthology of novellas about empowering women. All author and agent proceeds from the anthology go to the Hamilton Co YWCA Battered women’s shelter.

In 2009, Tails of Love, another romance anthology with Lori and other contributing authors, was published through Berkley with all agent and author proceeds to benefit The Animal Adoption Foundation.

In 2010, The Gift of Love romance anthology, with Lori and other contributing authors, was published with proceeds to benefit The Conductive Learning Center, a school for children with cerebral palsy and spina bifida.
