Jonathan Beltran is adjusting to life as a civilian after an eight year military career. With a booming private investigation business and good friends to count on, life is headed in a positive direction. Coupled with his fierce will and strength, Jon will learn if his training has prepared him for this next journey.
Life is never boring for the ever-positive, smart-mouthed, fearless Kate Bryant. When unexpected events leave her temporarily homeless, she accepts an offer of a free place to stay with Jonathan. The challenges of working with rock stars, living with Jon, and finally confronting ghosts of her past may prove to be too much.
Uncovering Desire, book two in the Uncovering Love series, is a full length, contemporary romance, and can be read as a standalone.

This is the second book I have read by Kacey Shea and I never seem to get enough! I read it in one sitting and ignored life.
This story started with hilarity and it did it’s job of completely sucking me into the story from then on. I read the first book, Uncovering Love, back in June and I found it surprising that even though it was months ago, I was easily transported back into the lives of these characters as if no time had passed at all. That is a talent I rarely see and I loved finding it in Kacey!
This book was told in Jon’s and Kate’s POV, people we were introduced to on the first book and it was a joy ride. I still got my dose of Tate (MY LOVE!!) and Evelyn and I must thank Kacey for that!
I found myself unable to stop smiling through almost the entire thing. This story was just too adorable and quirky that there was never a dull moment. But that’s not all, we also find out more about what shaped Kate into being who she is and it’s a serious issue. This book has it’s serious moments and appreciated them as much as I did the funny ones. Kacey touches on real life experiences and it adds a unique and believable flavor to her writing. The characters are brought to life and I felt like I could hang out with them someday. With that said, the character developments of both Jon and Kate were satisfying and the best part, they are still developing, just like a real person would.
My favorite character in this book, besides the main duo, has got to be DREW!!! That man is a whole new level of hilarious and I found myself tearing up from laughing so hard at what came out of his mouth. I want to reread this book just to experience his quirkiness again.
Also, quick note, I fangirled when I stumbled upon my last name (Carpio) on this book!
Despite the length of this novel, the depth found in its pages was a blow to my heart. I sympathized completely with all of these characters and I can’t wait for the next novel!
I also want to thank Kacey with the bottom of my heart for mentioning on her acknowledgements. It was a complete and utter surprise and I couldn’t stop crying for a couple minutes. It’s a surreal and fantastic feeling that I hope everybody gets to experience at least once in their lives someday!
(I have reviewed her first book, Uncovering Love, as well and it can be found HERE)
