"Dangerous Ally" is the second novel that I've read and reviewed by talented Author Jessica Lauryn and it won't be my last. I am now caught up in her romantic suspenseful series and her books are both intriguing and captivating.
Lilah Benson is a journalist who has been hired by Raphael Ramone to spy on his son Lucas, kingpin of Project Gemstone. This illegal business smuggles diamonds into the country. Both father and son alike, are nefarious in their acts of crime. However, Raphael has an even greater agenda of his own. He covets Project Gemstone and has every desire to steal it from his son regardless of the illegal measures he has to take.
Lilah has agreed to become his administrative assistant to get closer to the story she craves...the one that will win her the much coveted Pulitzer Prize. There's a catch. She must move into Lucas' home, the Ramone mansion, in order to get the scoop on Lucas. Lucas has a dark past and a history with Lilah's sister, Lena. Lilah is on her guard in his presence as they play their cat and mouse game. The attraction, emotion, anger, and unexpected roller coaster ride that takes place between the two certainly kept me riveted to the pages of this well-written fictional novel. Can't wait to read the next one!
Author Jessica Lauryn can definitely spin a good yarn and she clearly demonstrates this ability in "Dangerous Ally".

Up The "Down" Ladder: Simple Ideas to Overcome Depression
The title of this story alludes to the danger surrounding the main characters, a key element in this story and the series. But there is a sweet romance that develops between Lilah and Lucas that takes center stage. Very well written! This one definitely gets 5 stars from me!
Lucas Ramone. He has had a tainted name for as long as he can remember. He's known as the dark, sordid business man. He will do everything in his power to keep his father, Raphael, from taking over all he's worked for. Even if it means seducing the beautiful, enticing Lilah. But can he get away with it or will his heart have him making other decisions. Will feelings get in the way of what he really needs to be focusing on?
In this book we will find a whole cast of characters that are intertwined with nothing but cunning deceptions and untruths. No one knows who is working against them. No one knows if the words coming out are lies. Every character is written wonderfully and you can get into the story with nail biting suspense. I was so happy that I was able to read this sequel. Jessica Lauryn absolutely has grown with her writing and the scenes she portrays to her readers leave your head filled with splendid images. I can't forget to tell you either...this girl can write a sex scene that leaves you fully sated. The passion between Lucas and Lilah is powerful and sexy! You don't want to miss it! If you are interested in mysteries full of betrayals and romance full of ups & downs, then this book is for you! I give this book my thumbs up!
How many secrets can a one family really have? The Ramone family have so many skeletons in the closet they need to buy a cemetery just to hide them all.
Lilah Benson is a reporter on a mission to expose diamond smuggling kingpin Lucas Ramone. She'll do whatever it takes to get the story and show just how evil the Ramone family truly is. Until she meets Lucas Ramone and feels the soul searing passion he invokes in her. Her plan? Get the story as fast as possible and get as far away from Lucas as she can.
Lucas Ramone gets everything he wants and after meeting, the sexy reporter Lilah Benson he knows exactly what he wants.
Add one determined reporter and a conniving diamond smuggler shake well and you end up with Dangerous Ally.
This story took me on a roller coaster ride. Nothing was as it seemed and it was a pleasant surprise. Every time I thought I knew where the story was going, I was whipped around the corner and given a little shock. I love a story that keeps you on your toes and Jessica Lauryn didn't disappoint.
I found myself swept away by the characters and their struggles. Nothing comes easy for the characters in Dangerous Ally. They are all tortured in their own way. I found myself rooting for the Lucas and Lilah. Hoping that everything would work out for the unlikely couple.
I would recommend this story to anyone that likes a good mystery. You never see the twist and turns coming.
