Hero Under Cover

Hero Under CoverHero Under Cover by Suzanne Brockmann

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

TBR Challenge 2011- Hero Under Cover has been on my TBR pile since May 2010.

3.5* While Hero Under Cover had a few plot holes, and one or two "duh!" moments, it was a better than average "light" romantic suspense read. The main characters were sympathetic and the chemistry was believable. One "duh!" item was when Annie thought Pete didn't want her and he gave no explanation. Since Pete was undercover as a bodyguard, the only explanation he needed was that it's unethical for a bodyguard to sleep with the person he's guarding. I don't understand why that never occurred to Pete (or the author).

What I did like was the relationship between Annie and Pete. If the reader buys into the over-the-top attraction (which you have to in most romance novels, it seems), the interactions between the leads are believable. Pete's feelings of being trapped in a no-win situation, and Annie's feelings of betrayal are real. I was moved by Pete's sense of loss and his desire for forgiveness.

Brockmann creates believable emotions from the very first page with Annie's anger and frustration at being held up at the airport by the FBI. Recommended for fans of light romantic suspense and Suzanne Brockmann.
