He foolishly let her go…
When the woman he loved walked out of his life, Brooks Alexander was certain she did so willingly—with the cool two-million his father had offered as incentive to walk away. So when the former Marine scout sniper learns that Darcy didn’t take a dime of his father’s payoff, Brooks realizes he made an epic mistake. He’s determined to make things right and reclaim his woman. Except neither task is as easily accomplished as he first thought.
Now her life is in his hands…
Wedding planner Darcy is no stranger to disappointment when it comes to the men in her life. When Brooks accused her of taking his father’s bribe, she was devastated that he thought so little of her—and realized he never knew her at all. So she walked away with her pride intact and her heart broken. Now, months later, an overheard conversation puts Darcy in the crosshairs of a dangerous criminal with powerful connections. With nowhere else to turn, she has no choice but to put all her trust in Redemption Harbor Consulting—and its cofounder, the man who broke her heart.
Katie Reus is a pillar in the romantic suspense community and DANGEROUS WITNESS is another jewel in her crown!
I really enjoyed reading Brooks and Darcy’s story! Brooks messed up royally and is doing his damnedest to earn back Darcy’s trust as well as protecting her from the dangerous situation she’s in.
I wasn’t too fond of Brooks, especially since he was a big jerk to Darcy. Darcy is a strong heroine and I really liked her. She didn’t just cave when Brooks tried to get back in her good graces and she definitely didn’t shy away from the danger she was in, but faced it head on. This wedding planner has a core of steel! Even though I wasn’t a fan of Brooks, he and Darcy pared well together.
The suspense aspect of the story was spot on. The villain(s) were diverse and unpredictable and the storyline was engaging. The secondary characters were supportive and entertaining as well. If you haven’t read a Katie Reus book, I strongly encourage you to do so.
I voluntarily read a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and feelings are my own.
