RELEASE DATE: August 5, 2014
At a benefit dinner, community activist Maria Cervantes overhears two men plotting a terrorist attack that could rock Miami to its core. But before she can alert authorities, she’s almost killed in a massive explosion—and wakes up in a hospital with no memory of what happened. As the sole survivor of the attack, she is now a person of interest to the NSA—and especially to Agent Cade O’Reilly. Because Maria is the one woman Cade has never been able to forget.
Years ago, they were closer than either was willing to admit—until Cade disappeared when Maria needed him most. Now he’s sticking by her, whether she likes it or not. Because the memories locked inside her mind could hold vital clues to the next attack. Because terrorists want her dead—and because he never wants to let her go again.
REVIEW: BOUND TO DANGER is the second release in Katie Reus’s adult, contemporary romance Deadly Ops action/suspense series focusing on a group of Special Ops agents. Although it is the second storyline in the series, it can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. This is community activist Maria Cervantes and NSA agent Cade O’Reilly’s storyline.
The premise focuses on a terrorist attack at a local mansion where the rich and famous had gathered. The only survivor is Maria Cervantes and the NSA wants to know why and what she knows. Enter Cade O’Reilly-Maria’s brother’s former commander in Afghanistan-and the man that walked out of Maria’s life eight years earlier. BOUND TO DANGER is a second chance storyline that places Maria in the line of fire when the terrorist cell that perpetrated the explosion set their sights on other targets including Maria. How much does Maria know and how did she survive the explosion?
The relationship between Maria and Cade is a friends to lovers/second chance story. Maria and Cade became email ‘pen pals’ while Cade was stationed in Afghanistan with Maria’s brother Riel. As the lone survivor of a rescue mission that went horribly wrong, Cade has had to deal with the guilt for eight years-and in doing so, walked out of Maria’s life without any explanation as to why. Now that Maria has been targeted and questioned, Cade’s protective alpha side wants Maria safe so that he can rekindle what was started years before.
The secondary characters include the members of the terrorist organization, their intended victims, and the men and women who serve in the NSA. Jack Stone from TARGETED (Deadly Ops #1) joins Cade and the team in Miami which gives the series a sense of cohesion and familiarity.
Katie Reus has the amazing ability of pulling the reader onto the front lines of the action and drama. BOUND TO DANGER is a fast paced, intelligent and spirited story of suspense, mystery, intrigue and murder. We watch as two people are pulled closer together by their wants, their needs and their building love. It is a story of heartbreak and grief; friendship and love; betrayal and revenge. What goes on behind closed doors will become the catalyst for an organization that wants revenge for acts so revolting, that anyone who stands in their way will become fair game in an international war.
