Review: Undercover Lovers by Dee Carney, Chloe Cole, Cari Quinn & Dee Tenorio

"Four ultra-sexy stories by four great authors, with one theme.

Who's undercover?
Shane Madison - Dead sexy private eye posing as a Strippendale's dancer
Tucker Lamb - Smooth as butter former conman posing as nerdy professor
Saffron Burton - Sensual food critic posing as just another customer
Katrina Killian - Brazenly sexual cop posing as a gang member

Conquered by Cari Quinn - Serial monogamist, Emma Donegan, has never had a one night stand. But when she sees the sexy cop-stripper at a friend's bachelorette party, she resolves to make her most risque fantasies come true.

Playing the part of a stripper is way out of private detective Shane Madison's comfort zone, but the future of his business hangs on this one case. Too bad the incriminating evidence leads right to the irresistible brunette who keeps slipping tens into his g-string. He can't let her distract him. Who knew it would be so hard...

Conned by Chloe Cole - Human sexuality Professor Cricket Malloy likes bad boys, but when buttoned-up Science Professor Tucker Lamb needs help with an experiment on aphrodisiacs, she goes the extra mile to help him out. After all, he's harmless...

Tucker Lamb was born into a life of a grifter. He's always prided himself on his fast fingers and quicksilver tongue. Ever since being placed in the witness protection program, he's been on the up and up, but something about Cricket Malloy makes him ache to see if his tongue is as fast as it used to be.

Consumed by Dee Carney- It's no surprise Chef August Jaeger's rivals would do anything to discover the secrets of his signature dishes. When the curvaceous woman of his dreams shows up out of the blue, he grows suspicious. Fortunately, the best way to get to the truth is by offering a private dining experience that would teach her a passionate lesson she won't soon forget.

Food journalist Saffron Burton has a job to do: find out what August is serving for Restaurant Week or lose her job. But with every course that passes her lips-and every minute in his presence-she's finding what she really wants isn't listed on any menu...

Convicted by Dee Tenorio - Crusty sheriff Cade Evigan doesn't date convicts, not even ones as irresistible as Katrina "K.K." Killian. The woman may have gotten under his skin-and once, on the hood of his car-but the sultry biker had criminal written all over her. He has to stay away.

When the crap hits the fan and the case she's been working on for two years cracks wide open, Katrina heads straight to the hills to protect the one man she cares about. But some temptations are impossible to resist and she knows if she stays with Cade for the night, odds are her cover isn't the only thing getting blown..."

Published May 17th 2011

Not only is this anthology super sexy, It's HOT!!! Okay not just HOT, But Scorching!! It includes Novellas Consumed by Dee Carney, Conned by Chloe Cole, Conquered by Cari Quinn and Convicted by Dee Tenorio. To make this easy  for everyone including myself I have reviewed the stories in the order that they appear in the anthology. I need to thank the Awesome Dee Carney for giving me some of the best sex of my life *cough* I mean giving me the chance to read and review this scorching anthology and to let you ladies know I was NOT disappointed.

Consumed by Dee Carney

August Jaegar is not only the best chef but a wickedly hot one at that. He doesn't just work all these long hours for nothing he made himself the best. To keep everyone away from all his delicious dishes he doesn't like dealing with reporters. It just so happens when he is working hard one night, in comes the woman of his dreams and he cant help but offer her a private showing. Saffron Burton happens to be a food critique working at the Denver Daily and manages to catch August's eye right from the first moment he lays his eyes on her. Food wont be the only thing they will tasting. *wink* 

Okay so everyone know I love Dee Carney. Her style of writing is not only unique but flows so well and perfect all together. Now if you think her other stories are hot, you need to read this one.The passion between August and Saffron is just heart stopping right from the first page. She did an excellent job on explaining and making me understand the restaurant business. Hell, because of her I know want my won chef to cook all those wonderful things but heat me up in the kitchen.

I just hated that it was so short. I wanted more Saffron and August!! I could totally picture more of their story. I need to recommend Consumed for anyone who loves food, passion, and a chef to literally drool over. I mean the things this man can do in and out of the kitchen will get your fire started for sure.

Conned by Chloe Cole

Tucker Lamb is a professor teaching Science at Westside.He just so happens to be in the witness protection program and doesn't wait to blow his cover. He has the hots for Professor Dr. Eleanor Malloy who just so happens to teach Human Sexuality at the school. Although he has been there for a short time their sparks don't start flying until they agree to join their class projects to teach the kids that Science and Human Sexuality are a like.

Chloe Cole is a new author for me, but that didn't stop me from getting into this little hot read. She brings in a  well written and steamy romance. The attraction that she brought to her story was more than sizzling it was over powering. And I absolutely loved it every minute of it!!

The plot was different and something that I am not used to. Tucker just has this bad boy edge that you get caught up in even though he has turned his life completely around. Eleanor I have to say was my favorite. She bold and didn't hold back. I wish I could have learned more about both characters. This read is funny, sexy and a tad emotional. Cole brings the heat to this story so make sure you have a glass of water near by.

Conned by Chloe Cole  is another must read and I am looking forward to reading more from her in the future. Her writing will make you just sizzle with need. 

Conquered by Cari Quinn

Shane Madison happens to be a  Private Investigator trying to make his own firm a successful. He is determined that he would not walk away from another career since he had walked away from being a Police Officer. 

Emma Donegan is still single and wants experience some hot passion even if its just one time.After just breaking up with her boyfriend, she embarks out on a girls night of play over at Strippendales for her best friends bachelorette party. It just so happens that Shane is working undercover. When he sees Emma for the first time he loses himself. 

Cari Quinn brings an excellent story to this wonderful book. I found myself laughing and enjoying the story of how Emma and Shane interact. It really was to die for. Emma and Shane for sure had me dying to get deeper into the story and with them I went from laughing to fanning myself. Just overall excellent! 

Shane and Emma were both just lovable and the attraction that they have will knock your socks off. Quinn has them exploding off the pages and me panting for more and more. I want to recommend this story  because Quinn not only has an excellent writing style that you get but is just

I would most definitely recommend this to fans of Cari Quinn. She knows how to keep you on your toes to make every little bit count.

Convicted by Dee Tenorio

Dee Tenorio is anothor new author for me and story story just got me from start to finish. I have a thing for men in uniforms and guess what this had.... why yes it did!  Former Marine Cade Evigan is now the Sheriff of Marketta. He is a soldier who has fought in a war and now is back in town trying to make sense of his life.

Katrina Killian is a undercover DEA agent whose job is to bring down a biker gang. When they first meet the passion that sizzles between them was just off the charts. Katrina is determined to have Cade so why do they keep fighting it?

Katrina gets through all of Cade's defences and the emotions until he has no choice then surrender to her. They way she made her characters were just outstanding. Both kick ass! The build up was just phenomenal but you kind of don't expect it to go that way. I mean hello she is undercover. Lol. But my whole point is that I enjoyed it. 

I loved everything about this story. It wasn't just sexy but fast paced. Cade is super sexy and Katrina comes off as a loyal kick ass female. She even goes to the breaking point to protect him even though Cade can surly protect himself. What made this one stick out a bit more was the epilogue after it was over. I wish all the ladies whould have touched back base in with their characters as she did. 

I am a new fan of Dee Tenorio and I was not disappointed. This is a read No one should miss. And it doesn't hurt that Cade is sexy and the story is heart warming.

I just loved, loved, loved these stories and I hope in the future they will work together again. They are all very extremely talented and the stories are so universal you cant help but be captured into the mix of what they bring out. If you haven't picked up your copy - Its a must! These reads will not leave you disappointed. Happy Reading!
