Why oh why have I waited so long to read a romance novel by Lori Foster! I have majorly been missing out and am so happy now that I have been introduced to her writing and steamy romance. Getting Rowdy is the third book in the Love Undercover series and boy is it hot. But not only that the plot is thrilling, with twist from each of the protagonist background, they both have really deep stories that make you feel for both of them. This can be read as a stand-alone, but after reading about the two previous couple in this book I want to see how they met and can’t wait to read their stories.

Getting Rowdy follows Rowdy Yates, a man who not only is attractive and tough, but never says no to the women who want him. But the one woman who he actually wants is always saying no to him. Rowdy knows Avery is not like any girl he’s met, she has something she hiding and he isn’t much different from her when it comes to secrets. Together they try to knock down the walls that they have been hiding behind, as well as fight the past dangers that seem to have finally caught up with them.

Rowdy is one smoking hot man, who has a very cocky attitude and bluntly says what he wants without shame. I loved his care free attitude even though his mouth got him in trouble a couple times, even when he didn’t mean for it too. Though he seems like a player, he has a pretty scarred past that has damaged him. Inside he’s a loving and protective man who cares a lot for family and for the people who work at his bar. I liked that he wasn’t perfect, that his flaws added to his charismatic personality and it made him real. His connection with Avery is deep and he tries to fight his instincts but knows that she is someone he needs, and actually wants him for the right reasons.

Avery is a sweet and caring young woman, who can be tough and smart mouthed when needed. She has dealt with a lot of scars like Rowdy, her family life was “ideal” for most but no one knew what really went on in her pampered life. She has a hard time opening up and Rowdy seems to be the one person who she may be able to talk too. I loved how together they found that missing piece and seemed to understand that they can be happy.

Overall, even though the plot is predictable because it’s a romance story, I felt the background for both Avery and Rowdy were deep and seriously made me as the reader care for them so much more. I also liked how even though I didn’t know the characters stories from the previous books, I was able to connect to them and enjoyed their time with Avery and Rowdy. If you’re looking for a hot romance with a solid plot that is full of suspense then this is the book for you. Lori Foster no doubt will entice you with her steamy writing but also with her memorable characters.


This is an adult novel that is suitable for a mature audience due to its sexual content. Fans of Beautiful Disaster by Jaime McGuire and Reunited in Danger by Joya Fields will enjoy Getting Rowdy by Loir Foster.
