CHASING DANGER (Deadly Ops 2.5) by Katie Reus-a review
About the Book: Release Date April 21, 2015
Chief Nursing Officer Hannah Young is accustomed to working under pressure, but even she’s still reeling in the aftermath of a horrific terrorist attack on Miami. And things only get worse after a knife wielding maniac tries to kill her. Desperate for help, Hannah must turn to the one man she never thought she’d see again.
After spending an intensely passionate night with Hannah, NSA Agent and former Delta Force operative Dax Costas fell off the face of the earth. He got called away for a two week mission with no way to contact her. Now he can’t get the smart, sexy woman out of his head. She might be angry at him, but when it appears she has a stalker, Dax moves her under his roof and into his protection.
Unfortunately, whoever wants Hannah dead will stop at nothing. And if Dax can’t identify the perpetrator in time, it could be too late to discover if there is more between him and Hannah than just heated passion…
REVIEW: CHASING DANGER is a novella in Katie Reus’s adult, contemporary Deadly Ops romantic suspense series. This is NSA Agent Dax Costas, and nurse Hannah Young’s storyline. Chasing Danger can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty.
The storyline follows Hannah as she considers what it is she wants from Dax Costas. Dax disappeared without a word, a few weeks earlier, and in this Hannah believes she has been played like a fool. When Dax returns, and is unable to tell Hannah where he had been, Hannah knows it is time to move on even if Dax wants a chance at something more.
Hannah has a stalker; she is the target of a man trying to clean up loose ends, and Hannah knows his secret. What ensues are several attempts on Hannah’s life wherein Dax will take matter into his own hands. If the Miami PD are unable to protect the woman with whom he has fallen in love, Dax will make sure that Hannah’s stalker is stopped-once and for all.
The relationship between Hannah and Dax is a slight second chance build. When Dax disappeared, Hannah all but gave up on the sexy, secretive man but she was unaware as to the extent of his undercover operations and going black. The $ex scenes are intimate, romantic, and a little bit steamy. Katie excels at intoxicating sexy romance.
The secondary and supporting characters include Hannah’s coworkers and friends; and we are introduced to several of Dax’s fellow agents at the NSA.
CHASING DANGER is a quick and provocative read. There is drama, betrayal, mystery and suspense. The reader is pulled into an addicting and passionate storyline where the characters are definitely in the driver’s seat. Sit back and let Katie Reus seduce your mind.
