In Uncovering Desire by Kacey Shea, Jon Beltran is slowly adjusting to civilian life after having served eight years in the Army. On a drunken whim, Jon started a PI firm with his best friend and things are going well. One of Jon’s complaints is his love life. Evie, his best friend and business partner is now in an exclusive relationship and she long ago put Jon in the friend zone. Then there is Kate Bryant. Kate lives life to the fullest and she loves getting Jon riled up with her sharp tongue. When asbestos is found in her apartment, Kate and Jon become temporary roommates. Will this unlikely pair find love?
I loved everything about this book! Shea writes a great romance. Her plots are well developed with characters so real you feel like you should be able to call them up and have dinner with them. Shea’s love scenes have just the right amount of heat in them as well.
Kate was a total surprise to me. In the first book she came off as a loveable flake with a very active sex life. Looks can definitely be deceiving. Kate really opened up in this book and a lot of her was nothing but a facade to cover up her heartbreak. Seeing Jon with Kate was a hoot. She forced him out of his comfort zone a few times. I don’t think things would have turned out okay for Jon if Kate hadn’t been there for him when he needed it the most.
Uncovering Desire is the second book in the Uncovering Love series (but it can be read as a standalone ). Shea writes a solid contemporary romance with amazing characters that will leave readers wanting more. I can’t wait to read the third book coming out next year.
