I like DANGEROUS LOVE and think it is an enjoyable read, definitely worth the time. However, for me, it does not quite reach the rather high benchmark already set by Walters in her first three books of The Fitzgerald Series. The easy flow of SLOW BURN, MINE UNTIL DAWN, and KISS ME CRAZY is missing from this book.
Faith’s story is an interesting one. It definitely adds layers to a previous secondary character and builds the Fitzgerald narrative to include exposition about the success Faith achieves as a designer. This completes another piece of the family puzzle.
Coupling Faith with Ken is a bit of a surprise, a pleasant one. I was drawn to him as a character in SLOW BURN. It is nice to learn more about him, his family dynamic and his team. The torch he still carries for Faith is sexy.
Knowing each other without knowing each other is a nice plot device to enable sharing personal information to build trust, lowering of walls and the revelation to me of some previously unknown information about each character.
I liked the plot twist at the end of the thriller storyline within the story. I really didn’t see it coming, not just Deirdre as the lead villain but also Ken being the character in peril rather than Faith.
This book has all of the elements for a really great read but, I feel, misses the mark a bit in its flow. I have come to truly love Walters’ way of storytelling in both Contemporary Romance and Young Adult/New Adult genres. I want to be clear in the fact that I do like this book, I just feel that it does not quite reach the threshold of the excellence I have come to expect. I am spoiled.
