In this red-hot romance-the first in a Special Ops series-Dawn Ryder takes readers into a world of dangerous secrets and forbidden passion…
She’s too good to be bad
A bad-boy member of an elite Special Ops team, Mercer has never been assigned an undercover mission he couldn’t complete. But when his latest job requires him to gain the trust-and get into the bed-of his newest target, the sexy, fiery colonel’s daughter, he has a whole new challenge ahead of him. All evidence points to her being a traitor to the country he’s sworn to protect, but the crackling desire between them is too strong a feeling to ignore…
He’s too bad to resist
Zoe has always kept her secrets close to the vest. The only woman in a decorated military family, she’s been taught that to let someone close is to flirt with disaster. But when the dangerously handsome, alpha-strong Mercer comes blazing into her life full-speed, it’s all Zoe can do to resist his wicked seduction. As danger circles closer, Zoe must decide if she can trust him to protect her-but there’s no way he could be bad when he makes her feel this good…
I’m just going to keep this review short and sweet. Overall, I thought this book was an ok read. I really liked the idea of the story and thought that it was refreshing. This story starts off with a bang and keeps you guessing right until the very end. You will be left on the edge of your seat wondering who is the enemy and who you can really trust.
However, I did have a few issues. First of the all, when we first start Dangerous To Know, it jumps right into the story with no lead up. So, it left me feeling like I was missing something right off the bat. I didn’t really get a grasp on the situation until I was at least 50% into the book. I liked Zoe and Mercer. I thought they had great chemistry. That being said, I had some issues with their relationship. It was very sex based. And while they were scorching together, I would have liked to have seen them actually build on their relationship. Mercer did a lot of questionable things in his quest for finding out the truth and I didn’t really like how he treated Zoe. I felt like Zoe needed to make him grovel a little for his wrong doings. It frustrated me how easily she forgave him. And if that wasn’t enough, once they got past their “issues” their relationship went warp speed. Things just progressed way too fast for my liking.
Other than those issues, I thought this was an ok read. It definitely frustrated me and had me on my toes at the same time. I thought the suspense was great and I liked that there was multiple story-lines, so it peeked my interest for further books. And while Zoe and Mercer’s story does wrap up, the ending does set the stage for the next installment of this series. I think this series is off to an ok start and I’m interested in checking out the next book to see what is in store for us next.
