Leo Frost has lost his house, his car and possibly his acting career. Releasing an independent film is his only hope of paying for his sister’s twenty-four/seven care, but he’s got to finish it first. The last thing he needs is a curveball from the one woman who could break his focus with a look, a smile and the most unexpected news of his life.

Kim Jacobs wants it all—a career in a big city, a husband and a family, but a tryst two months ago with one of Hollywood’s biggest stars leaves her pregnant. Knowing Leo doesn’t want kids or a wife, Kim decides to make her own happily-ever-after with the help of a recent inheritance. All that’s left is to tell the man and move on.

Kim’s short visit to L.A. turns deadly with a series of mysterious attempts on her life. Suddenly Leo not only has to save his career, he has to find out who’s trying to murder the lady who is stealing his heart. As an actor, danger was staged and nothing was at stake, but now the threats are all too real. If Leo wants a future and a family with Kim, he has to prove he can do more than play a hero onscreen, he has to be one in real life.

Review3.5 starsAlways Dangerous-DGR

God, he loved her like this. Out of control. He loved her begging for him. Loved to see this businesswoman let her hair down and give it up to him.

Always Dangerous was my first book by Dee J. Adams and it’s safe to say after finishing, that it certainly won’t be my last. I love a steamy romantic suspense, and Adrenaline Highs delivers on that end flawlessly. Now you’re probably thinking to yourself, but Lana, this is book 6 in the series and you’re starting with this book. And to you, my OCD friend, I say, I like to live dangerously.
Right then.

What I appreciated about this book and is how effortlessly the author brings a new reader into the fold without being repetitive or overly detailed with what I’m assuming happened in the previous books. This truly allowed me to enjoy the story for what it was without ever feeling like I’m missing details or backstory. Though part of the story takes place in Dangerous Race, there’s just enough detail given to bring you up to date and immediately immerse you into what’s taking place in Always Dangerous.

Leo Frost and Kim Jacobs shared one sizzling night together in a time when Leo lost everything. Now he’s on his way to working his way back to where he began, but their night together left quite a souvenir. When her aunt passes away and leaves her millions in an inheritance, Kim is determined to make her own happily ever after, whether Leo shares that with her or not.

The last things on Leo’s agenda now are kids, and for a deeper reason than he lets on. He lost almost everything thanks to his embezzling accountant and now he’s working to pick all the pieces back up. To say that Kim catches him off guard with her surprise news is an understatement and he makes no secret about how he feels about it. But when her life is threatened, it puts all his protective instincts to the front and he knows that he’ll do anything to protect her and their unborn child.

Knowing the identity of the villain for pretty much the entire book was quite a change of pace for me. I can’t say if it was refreshing or the suspense part lost a little of it’s luster because of it. I think as a reader, I prefer the mystery and the intrigue of trying to figure out who the bad guy is, that knowing it did fizzle things just a little for me. Having said that, the book was not even a little boring. It was quick paced and sexy and packed with quite a bit of action.

I also loved the direction the author took towards the end of the story. While I was an emotional mess reading it, I appreciated what she did with that particular twist and it only served to make the ending that much better.

Miss Adams has a new fan in me after this, and I’m definitely planning on going back and reading all the previous titles in this series. If the final book is anything to go by, I’ve been missing out.
