Kylie Roberts, yoga instructor and the 'quiet twin' has been coerced by Stacy, the 'wild twin' into filling in for her as an exotic dancer (read, stripper) at Deuces, a gentlemen's club (read, strip joint.) With a broken leg, Stacy is unable to dance, but money is in short supply, and Stacy's high-paying job is their biggest income.

First night jitters give way to first night flutters when she eyes gorgeous Trevor McCade in the crowd. Later that night Kylie comes across a dead body in t

What a pleasant surprise! It's a ridiculous set up, but it worked anyway! I laughed, I tingled and I fell in love with the hero.

Good twin Kylie is forced to take bad twin Stacey's place as a stripper. Kylie is a yoga instructor, but that played almost no role in the story. On her first night, she finds one of Stacey's regulars murdered and she is thrown into a murder investigating with hot cop Trevor. Trevor is one yummy male!

Really enjoyed this one! It fits my Brazen criteria: Sweet, Sexy and Short. There was even a bit of mystery/suspense in it too to keep me turning the pages.

Really liked the sexual tension the couple had going on and I'm a sucker for hot cops. The only thing I would complain about critique is I could have shaken the heroine a time or two. Great read to pass a few hours, though only time will tell whether it is memorable.

Folks, we have another winner from Samanthe Beck! Seriously, this girl has some serious writing chops.

To her credit, she didn't write another rehash of Private Practice, which I appreciate. Although, her trademark humor is still there, Lover Undercover has a more serious tone to it than PP and of course, there was a bit of mystery added to the story as well, which we'll get into later.

Kylie and Stacey Roberts are twins. Kind of like the Wakefield twins but from the wrong side of

This just did not work for me. While I liked Samanthe Beck's writing style, the story itself just fell flat.

It was a cute romance, but aside from that nothing really stood out.

I don't expect for Romance novels to be perfectly realistic, I read for the escapism of it after all, but parts of this book just grated with me.

So we start out with Kylie, a sweet little yoga instructor, covering for her twin sister who has a broken a stripper. Although self conscious and

Really loved Private Practice by this author so this one had a lot to live up to. Didn't really hit the mark for me.... I liked it, didn't love it. Still a good sexy story with a hot Hero and Heroine...

I have mixed feelings about Lover Undercover.

I did enjoy the story between Kylie and Trevor. There were plenty of sexy moments while Kylie was pretending to be Stacy and more sexy moments when they got together outside of club hours. I liked the banter between the ladies at the club they were funny.

My problem with Lover Undercover is I did not feel a connection with Kylie or Trevor and Stacy annoyed me I found her very selfish she cared more about her job than Kylie's safety and I felt parts of

This one was an ok read for me. I was able to get past the whole "Totally inexperience virgin successfully pretends to be a stripper." I actually like the beginning of the book, when Kylie and Trevor meet, and their interactions at the club.

I think the thing that brought the book down for me was that the whole mystery plot seemed like a thin vail to keep the hero and heroine in the same situation, even after it was revealed that she wasn't Stacey. I figured out who the killer was at 19%, so onc
I don't have to say much.

I was bored. Plain.Old.Bored.

There was nothing wrong with the writing, but I felt that the story was very predictable and there was no connection to the characters.
However, the romance is quite sweet, so you could always give it a try hoping it will work better for you!

Re-"read" on audible. Did not like the reader. But still like this story!

Really enjoyed this quick read. Liked the characters and the storyline. They were HOT for each other! It was fun and definitely worth a quick read.

Samanthe Beck is fast becoming a must read for me. Kylie is a sweet Los Angeles yoga instructor who becomes a stripper overnight because her identical twin Stacy breaks her leg and without that income they'll be homeless. After finding a dead body Det. Trevor McCade goes undercover as a regular customer to catch a killer.

Good lord....the private dances Kylie has give Trevor (all in the name of catching a killer) are steamy and Trevor is one smokin' hot detective...oh man

Kylie Roberts has always bailed her identical twin sister out, whenever times are tough. Now with her sister injured, it is up to Kylie to fill in as a dancer at a high end men's club, while she recovers. Kylie though is a yoga instructor and although she bluff with the best of them, the difference between her and her sisters is obvious to one man, Detective Trevor McCade.

Trevor is at the men's club undercover, when the men he is with hire "Stacey" for a lap dance, something doesn't add
Rating 3.5 stars
Less enjoyable than the author's first book. First off it was too unrealistic and second off all the heroine's twin came across as selfish. Plus virgin heroine turns into sex kitten for the hero was weird.
Kylie has always been the "good twin". Her sister Stacey,is the wild and crazy one who takes risks and often leaves Kylie to reap the consequences. They have always been together and Kylie would do ANYTHING for her sister. So when her sister breaks her leg and can no longer dance, Kylie agrees to fill in for her. Kylie pushes past her insecurities because really, how bad could it really be?

One night after a long shift Kylie discovers a body. She finds herself in much deeper than she ever imagin
Camila, the opinionated Catruler

In a nutshell: I liked the characters and the romance, but it was a little too fast for the L-feels. I think it would have worked way better as a Romantic Suspense rather than a Contemporary Romance because the mystery plot would've been way more satisfying.

Something that stood up for me: Call me prude like my sister did, but getting all close and touchy in monitored interrogation rooms with a key person in your case is not ethical and probably illegal. Also, tacky.

3 So So Stars

I hate to say this because I really enjoyed the author’s first book, Private Practice, but Lover Undercover just didn’t do much for me. While not a bad story, it’s not particularly good either.

My biggest issue with the story is the HUGE suspension of disbelief I had to endure to make the book even slightly plausible. Stripper Stacy breaks her leg so her innocent yoga instructing twin sister is forced to take her place so the twins aren’t hit with the loss of income. Is the club St

Ordinary. OK.

I enjoyed Private Practice by this author, so I was hoping for more of the same. But this wasn’t as good. It didn’t stand out. It had the ingredients for romance, but it wasn’t special or different. A bad guy is doing things. In the end we learn who he is and why he did things. But we were never in his head which would have made him more alive, real, or frightening. He is an object that we are told about.

The heroine does something stupid which distracts the hero causing injury to h

3 Worth My Time Stars!

The premise is a little silly; but it's also a lighthearted fun. Nothing groundbreaking, but puts a smile on your face because of the sweetness of our main characters.

Kylie is a stripper.

Well, not actually. Her twin sister, Stacy, is the stripper and she recently hurt herself. To make ends meet, Kylie decides to fill in for her at the strip club.

That's some dedication to kind of an ungrateful person.

This was a nice book to escape into for an afternoon, but I have to say I was maybe expecting more. I have read several reviews for this one that just gushed over how hot and sexy this book was. I just didn't feel it. I mean it was sort of good, but Trevor wasn't Alpha enough for me and Kylie was just a little too naïve and frustrating for me. Especially when she dug in her heels at the end.
All these complaints don't mean I didn't enjoy this book, just that I didn't enjoy it as much as
3 1/2 stars (rounded down to 3 stars, because I had a hard time buying the concept of a virgin turning into a sex goddess that easily and the suspense part wasn't suspenseful at all)
Kylie may look identical to her twin sister Stacy but they couldn't be more different when it comes to their personalities. Where Stacy loves the limelight and dreams of becoming a famous actress Kylie is happier to live a quiet life and just wants to make her yoga studio a success. But when Stacy has an accident and breaks her leg Kylie is forced to take her sister's place as a stripper in an exclusive men's club.

Kylie steps in for her twin sister as a stripper so that they don’t end up homeless due to lack of money. Her first night she gives a lap dance to Trevor McCade, hot LA detective. Then she finds a body and she ends up spending alot more time with Trevor, trying to keep up her ruse. Then, smutty hot romance happens.

Before I start I should say this is my first Brazen read from Entangled. I requested an opportunity to read and review so I could get a taste of the series. I have read some Blaze from Harlequin which I assume from the website would be equivalent heat level.

First of all, the smexy did not disappoint. It was all very well done, explicit without being 'nasty'. Quite a good level for someone who likes it hot without being overly crude. A couple of instances did have me raising eyebrows about some m
