Review: Undercover Attraction (The O'Malleys #5) by Katee Robert


Part of the O’Malleys series
Goodreads | Forever | November 28, 2017 | Mass Market: $7.99 | eBook: $5.99

"A worthy addition to a sexy series." -- Publishers Weekly

Scandal. Wealth. Power. Seduction. Welcome to the world of the O'Malleys.

Ex-cop Charlotte Finch used to think there was a clear line between right and wrong. Then her fellow officers betrayed her, and the world is no longer so black and white. Especially when it's Aiden O'Malley, one of the most dangerous men in Boston, who offers her a chance for justice. The only catch: she'll have to pretend to be his fiancée for his plan to work.

Aiden can't afford to let anyone see the man behind the mask. To run the O'Malley empire, he has to be cool and controlled at all times. But the moment he meets Charlie, they're playing with fire. Her slightest touch is enough to send him over the edge. At first their "engagement" was a way to eliminate his enemies. Now he'll do whatever it takes to keep her safe-- even if he has to destroy his own family to do it.



4.5 stars

Can we just get Dmitri and Keira's book? I need that story especially after the way their story ended in this book. I need to see how Dmitri is going to become one of the good guys. I hope no one will die in that book. February is too far away for my taste! The cover of that book is gorgeous.

To be fair the cover of this book is also yummy. One of the reasons I could get the series in paperback would be the covers. The inside is also a good reason to buy the books. Aiden's story doesn't disappoint! I loved it but I am not giving it 5 stars because I found myself more interested in Keira and Dmitri who also tell some parts of the story. They took the focus off the main couple. Aiden is preparing to take down his enemies and I believe that he and Dmitri will take down everyone in the next book. I have a feeling that this book is here to prepare us for the events of the last book in the series. I would love to see Seamus dead or at least eliminated as a threat to his children. I also want to see all the O'Malley's bonding again and admitting that they love each other. So far they have been torn apart and now I hope to see them mend their relationships with each other.

I liked the main couple. They have a slow romance which was a pleasant surprise. They didn't just jump straight into bed with each other and they took some time to get to know each other. I find the match between Aiden and Charlotte to be one of the best in the series. For me, Charlotte is exactly the woman Aiden needs as the head of the O'Malleys. She is strong and she has everything I would have asked for her as a heroine. Aiden has his plan and she is more useful than I could have imagined. For someone who was on the "right" side of the law, she knows how to handle herself. Plus he needs someone to help him when that plan fails in some way.

I was very satisfied with the book. I like Katee Robert's writing and the book had a good pace. Not too fast not too slow (ok slow on the Dmitri/Keira thing). I don't have a single problem with the book other than the one I said in the beginning. I would definitely recommend both the book and the series. You will understand everything that's happening better if you read the previous books and I don't see a reason why you shouldn't give this series a chance.


Katee Robert is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author who learned to tell stories at her grandpa's knee. Her novel The Marriage Contract was a RITA finalist, and RT Book Reviews named it "a compulsively readable book with just the right amount of suspense and tension." When not writing sexy contemporary and romantic suspense, she spends her time playing imaginary games with her children, driving her husband batty with what-if questions, and planning for the inevitable zombie apocalypse.
