Bass - Georgie Tyler (Undercover #2)

Rating: 3 stars
Published: November 2015
Many thanks to Netgalley and Momentum for providing an ARC in exchange for my honest review.

A girl is found dead on the rocks after a night of hard partying at the hottest nightclub, Hellfire. Resident DJ Dizzy E, real name Elizabeth Jones, is uncomfortable knowing a killer could be out there, Stacey Lee could have been any of them. Kurt is trying to find out about his fiance's death, they may have been separated at the time, but he knows she'd gotten into a different lifestyle in the past several months. He's not assigned to the job, but going undercover at Hellfire is what it is going to take to figure her death out. Owned by a tough motorcycle club known as the Warlords, Kurt is surprised to find himself more than attracted to the DJ. While the case and their chemistry on fire, it could all burn down if Elizabeth figures out who Kurt is.

 I have feelings about this book, a lot of feelings, unfortunately they aren't all positive. They also aren't all negative, so that's good. I really liked Elizabeth as a character, although a lot of her beliefs and actions didn't make sense. For a girl who's pretty humble and modest, she sure struts her stuff. Kurt, on the other hand, is one hot cop, even if he moves on from his fiance very quickly. Their relationship is one of instalove, which sucks, cause the lust and chemistry was awesome until love came into play. It progresses quickly and the speed goes against everything the characters are built up to be. The murder story line itself was excellent, I predicted parts of it, but was surprised by others. It plays out slowly, making you questions everyone's motives. Unfortunately, once the twist is revealed it all closes up fairly quickly.

 While I wasn't blown away by this book, it is a solid romantic suspense novel. I liked the first 75% a lot, but the ending didn't do it for me. This is the second book in the series, but can easily be read as a standalone.
