Pepper Yates has been in hiding for the last two years as
the shy and timid Sue Meeks. Pepper and her brother Rowdy
are wanted by local thug, Morton Andrews whom they used to
work for at his club. A journalist leaked a story the Rowdy
witnessed the murder of a city commissioner. The journalist
turned up with his throat slit and Pepper and Rowdy have
been running since. Pepper hasn't minded so much, her
brother protects her and has provided for her but she does
get lonely. It doesn't help that her new neighbor is
smoking hot and persists in flirting with her. He is way
out of her league, so why won't he leave her alone,
worse yet why doesn't she want him to stop?
Detective Logan Riske is deep undercover as a construction
worker to capture the witness to his best friend's murder.
He knows "Sue" is Pepper and if he could just get close
enough to her and earn her trust maybe he can bring Rowdy
in. Logan has been relentless in his pursuit of Pepper but
she continues to give him the cold shoulder. He knows she
is interested, each time she peeks up at him her eyes are
blazing with fire. Logan decides this is it and he pushes a
little bit harder and finally has a little success.
Ironically as Pepper begins to open up to him, it's Logan
that is drawn to her like a moth to a flame.
Logan and Pepper begin to spend more and more time
together. Pepper wishes she could be herself with Logan
even though she knows it's not safe. What frightens Pepper
more is that she isn't sure which would be worse, losing
her life to Morton Andrews or losing her heart to Logan?
Meanwhile, Rowdy has been watching his sister and is not
pleased by her trusting a stranger. Rowdy is determined to
find out who Logan is and what he wants with his sister.
RUN THE RISK is a scorching page turner. The intensity
between Pepper and Logan is off the charts. It was
thrilling to watch Logan chip away at the wall Pepper had
built as a defense mechanism since she was a child. What
was more endearing was Logan, to see him a big tough cop be
such a teddy bear at heart made me fall in love with him
myself. Then there was the mystery of who all were behind
the death of the city commissioner and whether or not
Andrews would catch up to the Yates family building in the
background until you knew there would be some fireworks at
