DANGEROUS SECRETS (Tall Dark and Deadly #2) by Lisa Renee Jones
DANGEROUS SECRETS is the second storyline (April 2012 release) in Lisa Renee Jones contemporary romance series Tall, Dark and Deadly series featuring the brooding and smexy Walker brothers of Walker Security. This is Luke’s story.
Julie Harrison is a Chicago divorce attorney with big name clients. Hoping to make a quick flight to her friend’s wedding, Julie would suddenly be confronted with her client’s soon to be ex-wife and a secret that could get them both killed. With her flight cancelled, Julie checked into the recommended hotel only to find Luke Walker-former Navy SEAL and lover in the room next to hers. What a coincidence since her best friend Lauren was marrying Luke’s brother Royce.
Luke Walker still had it bad for Julie. Finding her at the airport was a stroke of luck but hearing her story that a client’s secrets could have potential ramifications not just for her client but her life, had Luke calling in Walker Security to track down some leads. But a phone call to Julie would find that her client’s wife was dead and a surprise would await Julie at the funeral. Her client’s wife had a sister and she wanted to hire Walker Securities to investigate the death.
Luke and Julie had never really said goodbye. Before his last deployment, he and Julie were an item, but on his return from active duty, he found himself trying to hold things together with his brother Blake who had recently lost his fiancé to an armed attack. Finding Julie again, was a sign that they were meant to be. And he was going to get her back. But every step of the way he seemed to do something wrong.
ATF, DEA and an assortment of government departments were all involved in the investigation. A money laundering Cartel involved in stolen art could be linked directly back to Julie’s client and she and Luke had become a bigger target with the information that had been handed directly to them. Blackmail, betrayal and bribery were all part of the game, and too soon, the faces of the players would become all too familiar.
DANGEROUS SECRETS is another fast paced and fascinating storyline from Lisa Renee Jones. There are some interesting twists and although there is a HEA, there is still some room for another storyline.
