Ignoring his instincts once cost Simon a vital op-and the life of his best friend, Ryan. Now as escalating, violent attacks hit A-Tac, another person he loves is in danger. Homeland Security agent Jillian Montgomery’s investigation has suddenly brought her back into Simon’s life, and unless they can learn to trust each other, their dangerous mission will fail.
After her husband Ryan’s death, Jillian dedicates herself to saving others. She can’t afford to be tempted by Simon, even though his every touch reignites the desire they once shared. But in the last desperate minutes before disaster strikes, their second chance at love might be the most lethal trap of all . . .
Dealing with the sudden death of her not-so-perfect husband, Jillian decides that she’ll never be a victim again. She devotes herself to helping others and learns how to survive the biggest of odds. When her training is put to the test in a very real situation, she ends up back in the arms of someone she’s been trying to get over for years. Her late husbands best friend and deep undercover elite agent, Simon.
Guilt over his best friends death has driven Simon for years. Having to work with Jillian makes all those guilty feelings resurface along with the forbidden desire he always feels in her presence. They indulged in each other once many years ago and Simon never quite got over the pleasure or the betrayal he felt emanating from his best friend. Working against the clock Jillian and Simon may not have as long as they’d like with an international villain bent on creating a US tragedy.
I really enjoy this series and Double Danger is another great addition to it! Jillian and Simon are just great characters that provided me with an outlet to get lost in the black ops story line and impeccable writing. What I love most about this series is the perfect combination of the black ops story, action and the romance. There is enough of each for me to feel satisfied with both fronts when often I am left wanting more from other authors. I’m a picky reader because while I enjoy military/black ops, I want a strong romance as well and sometimes an author will give me more of one or the other. Dee Davis has no such problems and ties everything together seamlessly.
Living a marriage that was essentially a lie has made Jillian determined not to make the same mistakes twice. Simon, while not her husband, has the same type of personality and that scares Jillian. She makes every attempt to thwart his advances and shut down her emotions. Riding an adrenaline high throughout the book makes that difficult and she finds herself falling for him all over again quite quickly. I enjoyed Simon’s high running emotions and constant drive to keep a very capable Jillian safe. His internal struggle between his feelings for his best friend and his widow made him endearing to me. I liked that he felt guilty but was unable to turn her away.
If you’ve read this series you know that behind everything is always the terrorist group, The Consortium. While that has been a constant I think I’m getting a bit tired of it. I would have liked a bit more light to finally get shed on them by the 6th book in. They are a bit too shadowy and it doesn’t feel as if anything will ever get tied up with that aspect. So theoretically these books could go on forever. I need a clear cut bad guy and a way to end the conflict…and I’m not getting that with these and it’s frustrating. Micheal, a high ranking Consortium connection, may not even be making it to further books, so that’ll leave me even more in the dark then normal.
Double Danger is a high octane romantic suspense with plenty of action packed scenes to keep readers eagerly turning pages! Dee Davis is an incredible author and she has definitely become an auto buy for me!
I give Double Danger by Dee Davis 4 stars!
