Danger Close


Worth reading 😎

A classic special ops romance, but with an especially feisty surgeon as a heroine.

Skylar is a top-notch surgeon...who can't help getting constantly kidnapped. Thank goodness her boyfriend Jaxon is part of a secret special ops group and can rescue her! While Jaxon rescues her physically, she gives as good as she gets, and rescues him emotionally, helping him recover from his PTSD.

Right from the start of the novel, it becomes apparent that there are several books in the series, as different couples are referred to. But with no knowledge of the backstories, trying to keep track of all the different couples is distracting from the main romance, not to mention confusing. Within the first few chapters, the reader is introduced to the main character, her father, her father’s political rivals, a cartel, the hero, the hero’s colleagues, as well as the romantic partners of some of the hero’s colleagues, and then just to keep things interesting, some of the characters are also undercover, so an extra layer of identities to keep track of.  By the end of novel, it's much easier to keep everyone straight though, and you want to read another novel in the series to see what happens to all the other characters!

Despite the initially confusing characters, I love that the heroine isn’t a wilting flower and is not only super-smart (a top-notch surgeon) but also isn’t afraid to challenge the hero. A pushover, she isn’t!

And who doesn’t love a strong hero, who can rescue his woman from a cartel, dance her through ritzy political circles, is hot in bed, and can also cook a meal with the best of them? Be still my hungry heart! 

If you like a fast-paced special ops romance, you'll be happy to read a Kinsley Byers romance!

I love books! I'm an inveterate reader and I love sharing books I adore, and using language to convince people and explain my thoughts.
