About the book:
At a benefit dinner, community activist Maria Cervantes overhears two men plotting a terrorist attack that could rock Miami to its core. But before she can alert authorities, she’s almost killed in a massive explosion—and wakes up in a hospital with no memory of what happened. As the sole survivor of the attack, she is now a person of interest to the NSA—and especially to Agent Cade O’Reilly. Because Maria is the one woman Cade has never been able to forget.
Years ago, they were closer than either was willing to admit—until Cade disappeared when Maria needed him most. Now he’s sticking by her, whether she likes it or not. Because the memories locked inside her mind could hold vital clues to the next attack. Because terrorists want her dead—and because he never wants to let her go again.
Bound to Danger was a thrill ride filled with danger at every turn! But at the heart of this story was a sweet, second chance romance.
Maria’s whole life has been turned upside down after surviving a bomb blast that took out a mansion full of party goers, including her mother. Unfortunately, Maria can’t remember anything before the blast and the-powers-that-be are very interested in how she survived. Enter Cade O’Reilly, the man who broke her heart eight years earlier. He’s been assigned to protect her and investigate the attack. The simmering attraction and intense longing Maria felt all those years ago come rushing back, but she’s not over the hurt and pain Cade inflicted by cutting her off so absolutely. Can she protect her heart when just looking at Cade twists her insides up? Does he feel the same?
Cade lost his heart to Maria, the little sister of his best friend, Riel eight years earlier. When Riel is killed in action, Cade blames himself and cuts off all ties with Maria, but he hasn’t forgot about her in the time they’ve been apart. When her name comes up as one of the survivors of a horrific bomb assault, Cade insists on guarding her. He can’t help the possessive and protective feelings he feels over Maria, and he’s through with staying away.
This was a non-stop action filled thrill ride! I felt like I was watching a Jason Bourne movie. Maria attends a party, things go BOOM, and it’s pretty much on from there on out. Katie Reus writes to excite! When I wasn’t being thrilled with the mystery and danger, my heart was racing for other reasons! Maria and Cade had a fiery attraction based on long held feelings, and it was only a matter of time before those pent up feelings combusted, and the result is hot, lusty, passionate!
Of course I wanted these two to sort out the past, eliminate the bad guys and get the HEA they deserved! Did I get my wish? (highlight for spoiler) Of course! This is a romance, after all!
If you love romantic suspense, Bound to Danger is a must read. I can’t wait for the next in the series, and I’m wondering if it will center on Levi. I’m sensing something between him and Allison.
