Book Review: Undercover by Kasey Millstead

Undercover Cover

Genre: Erotica. Romantic Fiction. Contemporary Romance.

In out, in out. I watch my cock sliding in and out of the club whore’s pussy. My gut tightens, not with desire in the lead up to my climax, but in disgust. I squeeze my eyes shut, praying the image isn’t burned into my retinas. I hate my fucking job…

When FBI Special Agent, Roman ‘Oak’ Drake, infiltrated the Zephyrs MC, he expected to find a lot of things – all of them illegal. What he didn’t expect to find was the beautiful brunette serving drinks behind the bar at Club Z.

Willa Burke spends her nights serving drinks at Club Z. It’s not the life she imagined for herself, but sometimes you don’t get a choice; you just have to do what you can to get by.

Outside of working for them, she’d never shown an interest in the Zephyrs.

Until she met Oak. The tall, wide, muscled man with skin the color of burned caramel and eyes a shade lighter than melted chocolate.
Teaser Undercover
She wants him.

He wants her.

She’s good and clean.

He’s good and clean pretending to be bad and dirty for the sake of his career.

When Oak brings the Zephyrs to their knees, will it also mean the end for Willa and him? Or, will it strengthen their bond?

Undercover is a stand alone novel with a happy-ever-after.

Ahhh, this was a great in-between book. By that I mean it was a really good, quick read. It was full of enough action, drama, and oh my where-is-the-fan hot scenes!!! What I really liked about it was how the author played out her characters, without over analyzing or describing.

 

I was/am a huge Sons of Anarchy fan (what can I say, Charlie Hunnam….actually..say no more) so whenever I see a story come out that is Motorcycle Club themed I want to dive in, but I’m wary. There is a particular sensitivity that needs to happen. The world of MCs are a private one and can come across and particularly cliché, or unrealistic (in as much as you can be in made up fiction world). Millstead did a great job by keeping the “MC” aspect out of it, instead concentrating on the relationship development between the two main characters, Oak and Willa. Oak was menacing enough to still be lovable. Willa wasn’t a wallflower, although at times I was confused at her ability to ‘get over things quickly. The author pulls off the story by offering alternative POVs so the reader gets inside both main characters heads. This really helped with story flow, especially with the “undercover” aspect. I also appreciated that it is a stand-alone novel and without any ‘spoilers’ the characters get a HEA.
This is my first Kasey Millstead book, but I really liked the flow of her writing and her words so I’m sure I’ll be grabbing more!

The past will never be forgotten, but there is hope if you just allow yourself to have a little faith.

EXCERPT – Keanu Pov
 


“Do you want to come join us, Keanu? I just realized you were sitting over here by yourself.”

I look over at Slade and then back over at Phoenix. “So, kids, what’s up with you two?” OKAY, so I’m starting to slur a little.

“Sounds like you’ve had enough alcohol for the night,” Phoenix says.

Slade grunts and pretends he’s busy, wiping the bar down, even though he has wiped the same place in front of Phoenix several times. Phoenix turns her back on Slade and aims her boobies in my face, which I think is funny, so I start getting that drunk man-giggle going. Wanting to annoy Slade, she pretends I’m not being a little school boy, but she’s doing it with the wrong person. I am not getting in between those two.

Slade clears his throat. “Is there an order you’d like to put in for you and your friends?” The friends bit is said not so friendly.

“Oh, hey, Slade. I didn’t see you there,” she quips over her shoulder at him.

How could she not see him? He’s huge. I think I’m seeing two of him, which makes me chuckle.

“I’ll be right with you. Keanu and I are talking.”

Ooooh, she did not just use me to make Slade wait. On that note, I decide I shall move on home and slam my hand down a little too hard on the bar.

“Okay, guys, sorry to be a pooper, but I’m heading on home, and I will leave you two to whatever this is you two are doing.” I lean over and give Phoenix a kiss on the cheek and catch the possessive glare being directed at me from Slade. “I think I will call a cab.”

“I’ll do it for you. You go wait out front, and there will be one with you shortly,” Slade growls out to me.

Somebody is a bit grouchy.

“Thanks, bro. Enjoy the rest of your night, and same to you, too, Phoenix.” I shake Slade’s hand and head off to take a piss before I leave.

I’m wearing the doppelganger tonight, so I’m a bit slower with taking a leak. After what happened with Levi today, something inside me just wanted to make me feel a bit more normal tonight, so I chose to wear the doppelganger prosthetic under my loose fitting long sleeved t-shirt. I should have fought the insecurities which had decided to rear their ugly head and just worn the ‘big gun.’ Sometimes, I let them creep up on me and take over then wonder if I’m whole enough for somebody to love me.

I zip my pants up and think, Fuck it! I’m quite a catch. Then I have another chuckle to myself.

I head on out, yelling goodbye to Slade as I leave and waving to Phoenix.

Slade raises one arm in the air to wave at me yet doesn’t take his eyes off Phoenix, whom he seems to be having a heated discussion with. Those two kids need to just give into each other.

Almost as soon as I walk outside, a cab pulls up, and he calls out to me through his open window. “Are you Keanu?”

I move towards the back passenger door. “The one and only.”

This book was a perfect next edition in the Ocean Beach series. You can check out my review of the first book: A Little Faith here. I wasn’t always a fan of switching POVs but Emma James has changed my mind. She manages to switch character POV at just the right time in just the right way that the story flows flawlessly and each character has a voice of their own. In this book I feel like James has improved her technique, and it’s easier to blend into the characters and distinguish their personalities. I think that being able to write so many different characters and their voices is a huge achievement and I commend the author on being so brave! I don’t think it’s going to be a style that will suit every reader, but the story line makes up for any inconveniences that may achieve. Whilst the endings leave the reader saying “WHAT…. WHAT… WHAT.. I HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL THE NEXT ONE?!?!” it’s definitely not a reason to wait to pick up the series. Start reading now and fall in love with the humour, the mystery, the intrigue, the closeness, the family that the characters are, and enjoy the guys and gals of Ocean Beach.
