Wild Card Undercover (Love on the Line Book 1) Kindle Edition
Trapped in the nightmare of Miami’s illicit underworld, Meg O’Hara has no choice but work for a high-stakes criminal to repay a debt. Freedom is a pipe dream, until FBI agent Christopher Shaunessy offers her a way out. It won’t be easy, especially playing the role of lover to the charismatic agent. Getting the goods on her boss could mean her life, a risk she’ll take to be rid of the rat’s vulgar advances.
Chris Shaunessy doesn’t break rules, but working with Meg is pushing even his well-honed control to the limit. Personal involvement should never mix in the sordid world of organized crime. They’re playing a perilous game. Giving into temptation could be his biggest mistake because the kisses they share might be more dangerous than the case…
***Wild Card Undercover is the first in the Love on the Line series. It’s an undercover lovers suspense that offers 'Romance with a splash of danger' featuring a professional-to-a-fault FBI agent and a sarcastic waitress as they delve into Miami's underworld to put crime in its place. What they find is ...each other.
- RT Book Reviews says: "Wild Card Undercover will capture your heart with its humor and witty characters. A knight in shining armor rescuing a damsel in distress while infiltrating the mob is no small task. Kudos to Lemor who has gracefully mixed a femme fatale with a dash of The Godfather and tossed it together with romance and laughter."

I love romantic suspense, so the blurb of this book alone appealed to me, but together with the cover I just had to read this story. From start to finish, this book was very engaging, fast-paced and had me hooked immediately by what Meg is going through. Why is she trying to avoid discovery by someone? How will she get herself out of trouble? Yet, what I enjoyed most about the start was what the hero did for her. She needs someone on her side, because her life recently hasn't been easy, and she's doing the best she can to make things right.
As for the dialogue, I was really intrigued by the heroine's back story. She's gotten herself into trouble, and it's palpable she's not getting out of it any time soon, if she doesn't take the FBI's offer. Her boss likes her a little too much and no way will he let her go. Indeed, he's a creep; a man that exerts his power over those he wants to, which is proven by what happens to Meg's friend when she didn't do something that the boss wanted her to. However, the dialogue wasn't all intense. There were some light-hearted moments between the hero and heroine that had me smiling, as Meg is strong, brave and I liked how determined she was to take her boss down and wouldn't give up, even when it seemed things were becoming too dangerous. Yet, in saying that, I did get a little annoyed by the hero's use of the word sweetie.
While the hero, his past haunts him and he doesn't want Meg to end up the same way as the last people that tried to help him, so he'll do whatever it takes to protect her, because he knows how dangerous things could get if they're not careful. He's also smart, confident and I liked how protective he was of the heroine as they begin to try to uncover information the FBI needed to take down Meg's boss. But what I liked most about the hero is what he does for Meg when it comes to her family, as she's worried what she'll face when she finally sees them again.
Overall, Ms. Lemor has penned a really enjoyable read in this book, which kept me entertained from start to finish with its romance and suspense. Where would the investigation into the heroine's boss take them? Would the hero finally succumb to their strong chemistry or remain true to his job as an agent by not getting involved with his informant? The way this story ended had me on the edge-of-my-seat due to what happens to the main characters. Will they be able to get themselves out of the sticky situation they find themselves in? How far will they go to keep the other safe? However, it was the last chapter that wrapped this story up perfectly, because of what the hero does for the heroine and then the way he surprises her. Who knew a snowman could come in handy? What made the hero finally realize that being alone for the rest of his life isn't the way to live? I would recommend Wild Card Undercover, if you enjoy romantic suspense or the sexy protector trope.
Chris moves Meg into his hotelroom pretending to be lovers to have a cover. This way he can keep her safe and they have an excuse to spend time together. However, is he just faking his feelings or does he like Meg more than he should? He can't risk his operation and has to keep his distance, but this is proving to be incredibly difficult. Will the operation be a success or is Moreno smart enough to figure out the truth?
Wild Card Undercover is a gripping romantic story. Meg is in a lot of trouble. She's basically a prisoner and has to work for practically nothing. There's no way she can escape on her own, so when she meets Chris she knows he's her only way out. She's brave and resilient and when she decides to work together with Chris it's clear from the start that she'll help him in any way she can. Chris is capable and smart, but Moreno is a dangerous man and I couldn't turn the pages quickly enough to find out if the good guys would win. Their mission kept me on the edge of my seat.
Kari Lemor has a fantastic thrilling writing style. I love the compelling way she combines passion with crime. Wild Card Undercover is filled with unexpected twists and turns, dangerous situations that made me hold my breath and true love. I liked that combination very much. Chris and Meg constantly have to make plans and I enjoyed reading about them a lot. The risks they're taking together with the sparks that constantly fly between them are making Wild Card Undercover wonderfully fascinating. I really loved this first Love on the Line story.

Meg is trying hard to extract herself from the blackmailing, merciless clutches of Moreno. He would rather she simply accepted her role in his business and agree to his constant demands to be friendlier to his not so nice Surf club clientele.
Chris meets her by chance, and then realises in her he has the perfect undercover plant, if only he can keep her safe from Moreno's detection and resist her likeable personality - both of which it's getting harder for him to do.
As their pretend romance gradually requires less acting, they have to not only divert Moreno's violent suspicious nature away from them, they must also face their own uncertainties about their lives and future.
This is the first in Lemor's Love on the Line trilogy. I'm looking forward to the next in the series.
