Review: Captured by Love #3: The Undercover Playboy

The Undercover Playboy by Miranda P. Charles is the third book in her Captured by Love series. A steady-paced romance filled with twists and secrets that will have you flipping the pages as fast as you can.

Cassie has a crush on Carter but they're just friends. He is her roommate's brother and nothing will ever happen between them. Besides, he is a playboy. When she starts a new job at an art gallery the unlikely happens...

Carter is not a playboy, he is an undercover officer who often uses his skills as an electrician as a cover for his detecting job. No one but his family knows what he does, it's safer for his cover and his friends if he keeps it that way. That is part of what makes him and Cassie an issue, especially now that she is working at the art gallery that's part of his current investigation.

This is the third book by this author that I have read and the third book that I have loved. Miranda P. Charles is fast becoming a go-to author for me - if she writes it I will read it.

Hot, steamy, twisty and awesome.

Wonderfully sexy, fun with suspense

Cassie is a strong, confident woman working to further her career at an organization that appreciates her. The one things she struggles with is love. Her roommates brother, Carter, has captured her heart but he is a playboy. When Cassie gets a new job and Carter is contracted to work at her new firm, they suddenly find themselves crossing paths more often but can Carter commit to one woman? Carter is a complex man since his job as an undercover agent puts him in unique situation of lying to most everyone about what he does. Most everyone believes he’s an electrician that plays the field but they don’t realize many of these "dates" are related to cases he is working on, not actual dates. He really likes his sister's new roommate Cassie but will his job get in the way of any romance they might have? When his job puts him directly in Cassie's path, he might find that protecting her becomes his biggest challenge. A wonderfully sexy, fun and sweet romance with a great level of suspense as we unravel Carter's case.
