Series: By a Dangerous Man #3
As Audrey struggles to keep Corbin’s identity secret, the rest of her life spins out of control. Rival bounty hunter Henry suspects she’s playing him for information, changes at work leave her stunned, and her father crosses her one time too many.
Audrey doesn’t approve of what Corbin is, but he proves that he’s been paying close attention to what she needs. When an unexpected situation explodes, Corbin can reassure her, but only the other Corbin, the one with secrets and a dark past, can save her.
I thought that this was the last book in the series – but clearly I was mistaken. We continue the journey with Audrey and Corbin and see where things can go with them. What’s nice about this installment is that we get to see new risk added in to the scenario. While we see that this couple is growing closer and their sex is getting hotter there are forces coming between them.
If you’ll remember, at the end of the last book, Henry – the other bounty hunter that Audrey had spent some time with had intel on where corbin was – in Florida, and offered Audrey the chance to come with him to watch him catch the guy, while also having his own ulterior motives – meaning that he still wants Audrey even if she’s turned him down.
Against Corbin’s wishes, Audrey goes with Henry, and she soon learns that it was a very bad choice. Because of various things happening, Henry now suspects Audrey of some less than savory things, and this means that Corbin has to come in and protect her once again.
Not such a bad thing for a short while given that it means that we get to see some hot scening, but still not ideal.
Where this takes us though is back to ‘the real world’ where things continue to get even worse. We learn that Audrey and Rob’s dad is up to no good in the sense that hey may have unknowingly revealed Audrey’s secrets – and the question then becomes who will be the first to notice and what will that mean for everyone’s safety. That’s where we are left off in this third installment. Someone has been killed, someone knows Corbin’s identity – and we don’t know who is safe and what they will have to do while they try to be safe.
All in all, a great way to make tension and passion work….yet again. I can’t wait to see where this goes since we know that emotions are tied together even more – love and lust are confused, and sex is mind-blowing.
