Toni's Review of Dangerous Love by E.B. Walters - 5 Stars




She has her emotions on a tight leash…

Born to a Las Vegas showgirl, fashion designer Faith Fitzgerald’s childhood was not easy, until her father found her and whisked her off to L.A. to join his wealthy family.

The rejection by some of her family members hurt, but Faith has moved on. Or so she thinks. She works hard and never lets her guard down, until the day she discovers that someone stole and sold her designs to her competitor and former mentor. To catch the thief and salvage her collection for Fall Fashion Week, Faith turns to her ex-lover, a man who works under the radar and gets results fast. The problem is she has not seen him since she dumped him so unceremoniously.

He’s laid-back and spontaneous…

When former-FBI-agent-turned-security-consultant Kenneth ‘Ken’ Lambert receives a call from Faith asking for his services, he sees a chance to payback the gorgeous designer for the way she used him then walked out on him. But then he learns that she is being victimized by a man whose idea of love is both dangerous and toxic, Ken pushes aside his personal agenda and agrees to help her. 

As their investigation progresses, Ken discovers that Faith’s calm exterior hides a woman of character and strength, a woman on the verge of falling apart. Can he help her find the answers she seeks or will she accept his offer instead—acceptance, unconditional love and support?

***********************************

Fool me once…Shame on you…Fool me twice…well you better watch your back because I’m coming after you with guns blazing and the ability to take you down.

Faith has had it.  She about to have one of her most amazing shows of her career and an unscrupulous ex is out to rip it away from her…AGAIN.  Well she will not have it.  He has been a thorn in her side for years and she knows just who to call to make sure she has the proof to ruin him and his stealing ways.  She calls another ex.  Well he really isn’t an ex; he is more of a one night stand that has never left her mind or her body alone.  Cue in sinfully sexy security consultant and all around hottie – Ken Lambert.

Ken has never forgotten how Faith burned him.  Never quite knowing what to expect from their night of passion, he was blindsided when Faith loved him and left him.  They scorched the sheets, and her rejection of him has left a bad taste in his mouth and his body wanting much more.  Faith is drop dead gorgeous, witty, and the most maddening woman he has ever met.  He may have had reservations taking on this case, but he is not going to waste this opportunity for another chance with Faith.  He is going to pull out all the stops and she won’t know what hit her.

Now they are working together to get the proof they need to bring down her ex.  With the help of his employees, her family and her aunt’s feisty friends, they get what they need and entertain us along the way.  Old pains are healed, laughter is shared, face fanning is invoked and love blossoms, and in my book that is a great combination.

Once again we get to visit the fascinating Fitzgerald family.  Dangerous Love is book four in this ever growing contemporary series.  Ms. Walters has written a delightful story with strong willed and fascinating characters, and the love of a great family.  While the mystery is light, it is still a fun ride along the way.  We know “who” the bad guy is, but finding out the what, where and why is all the fun.  Along the way we get to be witness to Faith and Ken’s reluctant affair.  As readers, we know they are the perfect combination to ignite the pages and keep us clamoring for more, and boy, they do not disappoint.

Ms. Walters sure does satisfy with Dangerous Love.  The story is engaging and packed with goodness.  A sexy couple, revisits from past characters, spicy interludes and some action to top it off.  The combination is perfect and I have yet to be disappointed with The Fitzgerald Family series and Dangerous Love is another keeper for me.  Can’t wait for more from this author or about this family!
