I won a copy of this book from Goodreads.
Reese Landon has always dreamed of owning her own dance studio, not taking over her father's club. She has discovered some shady business practices and due to past experiences doesn't trust the police. She tries to keep Blake at a distance, especially because he is certain her father is guilty of running steroids in the club.
It was an enjoyable book, trying to figure out who the head of the steroids drug cartel was & who was involved with the selling of the drugs.
Detective Blake Knight is working to bust a steroid ring working out of a male strip club. Making inroads into the group will require him to get a job in the club. Reese Landon is running her father's club after he's shot and left in a coma. She's aware her father has some shady deals going on and she'll do whatever it takes to protect him. Seems like cooperating with Detective Blake is the best way to do that. You know, keep your enemies close and all that. Too bad he doesn't really seem like an enemy. She just hopes she can keep her attraction to him at bay before they all get burned.
This is a very well done book with great writing, characters, and a nice pace and storyline. Definitely a book I recommend.
Dangerous Moves is the first book in Karen Rock’s new romantic suspense series. I’ve read almost all of Karen Rock’s books so far and really like her writing. So I jumped on the chance to get an advance copy of this one. It is a great start of this new series, it has some steamy romance, danger, suspense and a bit of mystery all rolled into a great read.
The story follows Detective Blake Knight, who has to finish a case to get his long sought after promotion. He has to find out who is behind a steroids ring in Dallas. Reese returns to Dallas after her father is shot. There is a connection with Blake’s case and he goes undercover in the club her father owns as male dancer to uncover the truth.
There is an instant attraction between Blake and Reese, even tough they don’t know if they can trust each other at first. I liked how their romance was steamy, but it actually took a while before it really heated up. Which gave them time to get to know each other a bit better. But only toward the end of the book do they really open their hearts to each other.
It made for an interesting plot with how Reese and Blake didn’t trust each other at first and are sort of on opposite sides. We get both their point of views, but there are a lot of questions and things we don’t know. Blake sees Reese as a potential suspect and wonders if her father is involved. Reese defends her father and hopes her return to Dallas gives them a chance at reconciliation. But she knows some things don’t add up in her fathers records and is afraid how he is tied into this.
I liked the suspense plot of this book and how both characters were involved/ connected to the case. There are some scenes filled with danger and tension. It kept me wondering who was involved in this case, how Reese’s father tied into this all and how they would discover the truth. And there are some answers they can only get once Reese’s father wakes up, if he does. In the end I predicted two important people involved in the case, but that’s mostly due to well done foreshadowing and some well placed hints that allowed me to put things together. But it was still great to see them figure it out and resolve things.
I liked how Reese could hold her own, but at the same time it did make me a tad uncomfortable how she got involved in some scenes as she wasn’t trained for this like Blake was. But she does have an original perspective and sheds some different light on things. And it was neat how they both tied to this case and how that connection allowed them to get closer.
Both Reese and Blake are great characters. I liked how different they were, but also how they had things in common. Reese left Dallas years ago after a traumatic experience and only returns once her father is shot and lands in a coma. She has changed since then and is ready to face her old fears, but part of those fears are still there. I like how she had her strengths, but also still had some doubts. She also kept some things from Blake, but while on the one hand that bothered me I also felt like it made sense as they weren’t sure for a long time how much they could trust the other.
Reese sees things in shades of gray, while for Blake the world is black and white. I liked seeing when his conviction got challenged and when he eventually was forced to open his eyes and realize things weren’t as black and white as he thought. I also liked how he slowly finds himself in this book and how some long lasted fears and worries are finally put to rest. I liked how he was protective of Reese, but also valued her insights and her initiative.
The first meeting between these two already has some heat and their attraction is obvious, but there’s a lot between them before they can give into it. And when they do the sparks fly. There is mostly heat when they finally get closer, but then that slowly morphs into more. I loved seeing how they finally open themselves to more and trust the other. And there are some touching scenes later on. Like when they finally admit their fears to each other and fully trust each other with the things they know. The conflict between them was well done too, it made sense they didn’t fully trust each other. And while there is a scene that causes some doubts between them toward the end, I am glad it didn’t blow up as much as I feared. And I liked how things were resolved at the end.
To summarize: this was a great read and a good start this this new romantic suspense series. There is a good suspense plot line that kept me wondering. There is some well done foreshadowing that allowed me to predict two of the people involved in the case, but it was still great to see how the characters pieced things together. They have an immediate attraction to each other, but seem to be on opposites sides. I liked seeing them grow closer and then give in to the attraction between them. And eventually that attraction turns into more and I loved seeing when they open up to each other and start the trust the other. Both characters are great to read about. They are quite different from each other and have some differing points of view as well, which made for some interesting scenes. But they also fit so well together. All in all this book had a good mix between romance and suspense and I can’t wait to see what the next book will bring.
