“UNDERCOVER ATTRACTION” by Katee Robert’s BLOG TOUR REVIEW: BARCLAY PUBLICITY
My Review of “Undercover Attraction” by Katee Robert
Which side of the law shows us who the good guys are and who are the bad guys? After reading “Undercover Attraction” by Katee Roberts,I realize that there are many areas that are hard to define. The genres of this novel are Fiction, Suspense, and Contemporary Romance. There also is adventure, danger, twists and turns. There are betrayals, secrets, and intrigue.
The blurb on the book says “Scandal. Wealth. Power. Seduction. Welcome to the world of the O’Malleys.”
Katee Robert describes her characters as complicated and complex. This is the world of the Mafia, or “Mob” in Boston. Aiden O’Malley,head of the O’Malley Crime Family approaches ex-cop Charlotte (Charlie) Finch with an intriguing proposal. Charlie has the reputation of being a “bad cop”. Aiden offers Charlie the opportunity to destroy the person responsible for setting her up, which helps the O’Malley family as well. The only catch is that Charlie will have to pretend to be engaged to Aiden, to be able to accomplish this to get the revenge she wants.
This is an extremely dangerous world, and the other Mob Families are extremely threatening. Charlie has entered a world where there is no right or wrong, and crime and killing are part of it.
There are power struggles, unstable alliances, backstabbing, and adventure.
There is lots of steamy sex and romance. Is it possible that Charlie can get used to this different world?
I appreciate that the author discusses the importance of family, love and hope.
Although there are other books in this series, this is the only one that I have read, and it can be a stand-alone. I would like to catch up and read about the other characters in the past books, and I look forward to reading more in the author’s next book.
I would recommend this book for readers that like Mafia stories with danger, adventure, steamy romance, and intrigue. I would like to thank NetGalley, Forever(Grand Central Publishing) and Katee Robert for the Advanced Reading Copy for my honest review. This review will be part of “The Undercover Attraction Review Blog Tour” on Lindas Book Obsession on December 1, 2017.
Ex-cop Charlotte Finch used to think there was a clear line between right and wrong. Then her fellow officers betrayed her, and the world is no longer so black and white. Especially when it’s Aiden O’Malley, one of the most dangerous men in Boston, who offers her a chance for justice. The only catch: she’ll have to pretend to be his fiancée for his plan to work.
Aiden can’t afford to let anyone see the man behind the mask. To run the O’Malley empire, he has to be cool and controlled at all times. But the moment he meets Charlie, they’re playing with fire. Her slightest touch is enough to send him over the edge. At first their “engagement” was a way to eliminate his enemies. Now he’ll do whatever it takes to keep her safe– even if he has to destroy his own family to do it.

Meet the Author:
New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Katee Robert learned to tell her stories at her grandpa’s knee. Her 2015 title, The Marriage Contract, was a RITA finalist, and RT Book Reviews named it ‘a compulsively readable book with just the right amount of suspense and tension.” When not writing sexy contemporary and romantic suspense, she spends her time playing imaginary games with her children, driving her husband batty with what-if questions, and planning for the inevitable zombie apocalypse.
