Danger Next Door

I received a complimentary copy of this book and I also purchased a copy that is in the grouping of the first three books of the series.

This book really starts with a bang and just gets better and better. Even though this is the second book in the series, you don't have to read the first one to thoroughly understand and enjoy this one. If I could rate this higher than 5 stars, I definitely would.

Grant Caldwell is injured during a raid as a Miami detective. Normally he wouldn't be involved in a raid since he was a detective but there was a lot happening that day and the department was spread thin. He sustained burns over a portion of his left face, back and his left arm. Belle Manikas is a neonatal nurse. She moves next door to Grant. She is accosted by a friend of the family and Grant comes to her rescue. Later that evening someone attempts to break into Belle's home but Grant chases him off.

The intrigue just grabbed me into the story and I almost thought I was going to burn out my e-reader with the speed that I was turning the pages. Plus the story is HOT! I adored the multiple person POV format that this is written in.

I HIGHLY recommend this very sexy story to anyone over the age of 18 especially if you love suspense and mystery with your romance!


Love it

Modern day beauty and the beast with a twist. Great cop story. Lovable characters that you truly want to see happy in the end.
