In Tess Diamond’s gripping debut, when an elite negotiator and a security expert team up to solve a kidnapping, the only thing higher than the tension is the heat . . .

Maggie Kincaid left the FBI two years ago and didn’t look back . . . until now. A senator’s daughter has been abducted, and the nightmare set in motion isn’t just familiar to Maggie, it’s personal. She’ll need all the help she can get to bring Kayla Thebes home alive—even if that help comes from a hot-as-hell ex-soldier who plays by his own rules. . .

For Jake O’Connor, negotiation equals weakness. But he’s immediately drawn to the sexy former agent who epitomizes strength. It isn’t long before he and Maggie are working together 24/7, learning to read each other’s signals and wanting much more.

But for Maggie and Jake, letting their guard down—even around each other—may be dangerous. Now, as they close in on a kidnapper with nothing to lose, their first mistake could shatter a young girl’s last chance…

Romance Suspense TBR Pile

Dangerous Games by Tess Diamond provided the suspense, romance, and edge of your seat feeling that made this a hard to put down book.

I was totally engrossed in the story that I literally could not tear myself away from it. Maggie was a strong character that had a lot of deep seeded issues. Part of the reason why she even joined the FBI was because of her past experiences. I immediately felt a connection to her character because of her sad story. So I was totally invested in her case and wanted her to kick butt!

Speaking of butts…

She butts heads with her unexpected partner, Jake. Their love story was okay, I wouldn’t say it was out of this world. In fact, despite the time crunch and seriousness of the case, I really don’t know how a normal couple would have found the time to develop a romance. It did seem a little rushed. But I did like how they worked together as a team.

Besides the main plot going on, the sub plot of Maggie’s past is slowly revealed. Just when you get comfortable with the storyline, an unexpected kink is thrown in. ACK! unanswered questions! The main plot is resolved but Maggie herself is not out of the woods. Even though I’m left hanging on that end, I’d say that it was still an entertaining story with twists and turns.

Oh, I saw this blurb recently and was intrigued. I’m glad to see you enjoyed this one. I love when the hero and heroine butt heads at first!

Great review.

This sounds like such an entertaining read, full of twists and turns. And I’m still loving that cover. Even with the speedy romance (meh)… I guess I’d be willing to give it a little leeway. Extreme circumstances, turning to the other person, etc. I haven’t read a romantic suspense in quite a while – possible K.A. Tucker’s He Will Be My Ruin from a year ago!
