Good Sunday everyone! I have another awesome review for you today, of Dangerous Proposal by Jessica Lauryn. Enjoy everyone!
[BookStrand Romantic Suspense, HEA] At nineteen, Alec Westwood nearly committed the most horrific of crimes—murder in cold blood—and narrowly escaped the assignment with his life. When a stunning young woman crosses his path wearing the insignia for the organization that recruited him, he vows not to let fate get a second chance. But when the enchantress gives him a kiss that leaves him spellbound, Alec realizes the power she holds is greater than all his strength and fortitude combined. On the run from her psychotic fiance, Lena Benson vows to forge a new life. But when her new friend Jack tells her to stay away from Alec Westwood—the man she believes her fiance hired to track her down—she takes matters into her own hands. Alec may have the charm, but she’s calling the shots, even if that means resisting a man whose eyes and touch rob her, literally, of sense. ** A BookStrand Mainstream Romance
My favourite point of any book is always the characters, and these characters didn’t disappoint. They were alive and vivid, and I loved that throughout the plot you didn’t know who to suspect-everyone was under suspicion. The writing was crisp and flowed well, and the storyline was original. The twists and turns were very cleverly constructed, and they pulled you in from the first page. I loved the author’s creativity, and it was a very enjoyable story. Not to mention there were some very hot scenes within it.
I felt some of the plot, while good, was a little weak in places. Some of it seemed as though it had been ‘padded out’ afterwards, not as though it had been worked into the plot.
This was a great book, and I would recommend it to anyone who was looking for a romance with a touch of mystery and suspense to it. I really enjoyed reading it, and the plot kept me hooked throughout, despite the weak points. The twists were fantastic, and kept you guessing all the way to the end.
I give this novel…4/5 Stars!
