The author of Flirting with Scandal presents her third book in a sexy contemporary romance series about three sisters in a powerful political family, the scandals that threaten to destroy them, and the passion that drives them…

Kate Reynolds has just graduated from college and is determined to make it on her own. Her job as a junior political analyst at the CIA is a dream come true and the perfect opportunity to find answers about the night that’s plagued her for four years—the night she lost her fiancé, Matt, on a Special Forces mission in Afghanistan. Kate’s consumed with uncovering the truth and avenging the man she loved and lost, even if it means risking her own life to prove that his death wasn’t an accident.

When she gets too close to discovering what happened that fateful night and danger arrives on her doorstep, Kate’s stunned by the man who comes to her rescue. Together, they begin to dig for the truth, fighting to stay alive as they’re dragged down into a world of secrets and lies. But when the threat hits close to home, Kate must choose between vengeance and a future with the man who’s ignited a fire inside her that she thought died long ago.

Review4 starsFalling For Danger- Dirty Girl Romance

All I wanted was to keep her safe, and I had no fucking clue how to do it, or if safe even existed anymore for people like us.

Since the very first book, this is what it’s all been leading up to; the dramatic conclusion to the Capital Confessions series and boy was is a doozy. I had some ideas about where it may all lead and some I was correct on while some caught me completely unawares. Falling For Danger was action packed, sexy, and filled with enough twists and turns to keep your reading well into the night…which is exactly what I did.

I love you, too.”
His body shuddered against mine as though I’d just given him the answer to a question that had been eating him inside. And with those four words, I tied a string around my heart and connected it to his.

Kate Reynolds lost her soul mate four years ago when her fiancé and childhood sweetheart, Matt, died on a Special Forces mission in Afghanistan. Her life changed irrevocably since that day and all she’s been living and breathing the past four years is her determination to get down to the truth of what truly happened to cause his death. Everything she’s been doing has been with hat goal in mind; her Capital Confessions stint, her CIA job, and her determination to bring her corrupt senator of a father down along with his secrets. As much as I hated what Kate did in Playing with Trouble, it was very easy to see how blinded by grief she was and her unwavering determination for the truth. The last thing Kate expected was for a late night visit from a man who saves her from an attack and completely turns the world as she thought it upside down.

Now I don’t want to give you ANY more detail than that. The blurb is vague and there’s a reason you don’t know who the hero of the story is, so I certainly won’t tell you either. I also highly recommend you stay away from reviews that may since it’s really best to go into this story absolutely blind. So what did I think of it? While it may not have been exactly how I envisioned for the story to conclude, I still enjoyed it immensely. There were two minor quibbles and I’ll spoiler tag one since it does give away who the hero of the story is.

1.(HIGHLIGHT TO VIEW SPOILER)I wasn’t sure how I felt about Matt loosely mentioning his being with other women while Kate hasn’t been with anyone since his “death”. It almost felt like it was belittling to their epic love for him to do that. It was never something that was discussed and Kate never asked, just loosely mentioned and moved on from so it wasn’t a huge deal. In retrospect, Kate truly grieved and believed he was gone while Matt knew she was alive but was convinced he’d never see her again because of the danger that follows him. So a part of me does understand he’d get lonely in the four years away. BUT, I almost wish that it wasn’t mentioned at all rather than the brief mention it DID get.

2. The ending was not quite how I thought it’d go down. I suppose I had hoped for something slightly grander, but I did appreciate the simplicity and realistic effect of it at the end. It may not have been exactly what I wanted, but then again, anything else may have been too unbelievable.

All in all, Falling for Danger was a great conclusion to a series that I’ve really come to love from an author that has comet o be an auto-buy for me. I look forward to all her future releases and especially love the sounds of her next series, Fly with Me. If you haven’t discovered the Capital Confessions series, I highly recommend you do. It’s full of intrigue, secrets and lies, corruption and sex. Each book has been different yet it all ties together flawlessly.
