Editorial Reviews

Review

"Dangerous Games is one of those books that grabs the reader from the start and does not let go until the end."  Sarah / Goodreads

"Without giving too much away, I will just say that I enjoyed the chemistry between Jake and Maggie, especially when he was trying to get a rise out of her. The story was well written and gave just enough details to draw you into the story but also keep you guessing."   Sparkymom / Saved by Suspense  

"This is a fast paced drama that will keep you on the edge of your seat flipping pages! I loved it and can not wait for the next installment!"  Angelle / Cajun Book Lover

"Tess Diamond keeps a great pace so the book never has a dull or slow moment which will keep the reader hooked until the end."  Heidi / Book Him Danno

Holy Dangerous Games Batman! I LOVED this too short book! Special Agent Maggie Kincaid has been fighting memories from being kidnapped with her sister, which gives special insight into an evil mind. When a case goes wrong because of her, it affects personally and she quits. Now a Senator's daughter has gone missing, and her ex-boss calls her in, but the family has different ideas, and brought in ex-forces security expert Jake O'Connor. Can Maggie and Jake work together to save the Senator's Daughter before it's too late?

This book hit the ground running, and I never caught my breath again. Tess Diamond had my heart pounding cover to cover! The character development is great, with a well written, exciting, heart pounding storyline that flows very smoothly. The author did a fantastic job with all the twisty layers to keep my on my toes, and that cliff hanger ending almost killed me! The next part can't come quickly enough for me! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Tess Diamond is a new to me author but after reading the blurb for Dangerous Games, I couldn't wait to start this book. I love romantic suspense books and this plot looked like it would be an exciting story. I was rewarded with an incredible adventure that I liked so much that I emailed the author to ask about the next book immediately upon finishing the first.

Here's the deal. Maggie isn't actually an FBI agent - she left the agency two years ago after a hostage situation ended badly. However, she could get her job back if she wanted but she doesn't exactly like being confined to the rules, (she prefers to rely on her gut instinct and logic) so returning doesn't feel like an option for her.

However, when her FBI mentor approaches her about the Senator's daughter, she hesitates about jumping right in. Because thanks to her own life experiences, she cannot ignore a case surrounding the missing teen and she just needs to help. She takes finding the girl very seriously and as you get to know Maggie, you will understand why.

It's at this point that you're introduced to a whole bunch of characters from previous co-workers to ex-fiancés. One man stands out and completely distracts Maggie's attention - Jake O’Connor. He is an ex-special forces that works for Senator and even though he doesn't immediately agree with her initial conclusions, their relationship (both professionally and romantically) develops quickly.

And I was captivated by it all. The storyline. The romance. Page after page is filled with enticing moments of suspense and seduction. Maggie and Jake are intriguing characters who I'm looking forward to getting to know better as the series continues.

Maggie Kincaid is an ex-FBI hostage negotiator. Maggie and her sister were
kidnapped at young teenagers .. her sister did not survive. Those memories
never leave Maggie and when she lost her kidnap victim two years ago, she
couldn't handle the stress and resigned her position.

A Senator's daughter has been abducted and Maggie's mentor, Frank, has more or
less black-mailed her into coming back ...just for this one case. Reluctantly
giving in, she runs into Jake O'Connor, ex-military personal protection for the
Senator.

As the investigation goes further, she can't help but feel that something is
'off'. She feels the Senator knows more than he's telling ... and Jake agrees
with her.

I really like the relationship between Maggie and Jake. There's attraction
there, but both are professional enough to understand that personal
relationships take a back seat from getting the victim back ... Both Maggie
and Jake are take-charge people, so there's a bit of head-butting here and
there.

The Senator reminds me of most politicians ... more concerned with his job and a
possible run at the White House. He's hiding something... but what? Drinking,
gambling, another woman?

I'm going to stop there .. to go further I'd have to toss in a spoiler and I
don't want to do that. Be warned .... there is a huge cliffhanger. And I can't
wait to get my hands on the next series book!

My thanks to the author who furnished a digital copy in exchange for an honest,
unbiased opinion.

I was completely unfamiliar with Tess Diamond when I was offered an ARC for review, but the book description sounded interesting enough for me to give it a try. I actually had already downloaded another book to read first, but once I read the first couple of paragraphs in Dangerous Games, I was intrigued enough to keep reading.

The story begins when Maggie Kincaid is recruited to help with the investigation into the kidnapping of a senator's teenage daughter. Maggie was formerly with the FBI but had wit a couple of years previously due to a negotiation that went wrong. She blamed herself, and after surviving a kidnapping as a child, she couldn't deal with her failure to bring a victim home. She never wanted to be involved in that type of situation again, but with medical issues making recovering the victim even more urgent, she wasn't able to refuse.

Despite facing ridicule from former co-workers, stonewalling by the victim's father, and the cocky interference of Jake O'Connor, Maggie doggedly pursues answers. Without giving too much away, I will just say that I enjoyed the chemistry between Jake and Maggie, especially when he was trying to get a rise out of her. The story was well written and gave just enough details to draw you into the story but also keep you guessing. It did end with a pretty decent cliffhanger, but my understanding is that book two will follow close behind this one. I will definitely be keeping an eye out for it!
