New Release/Book Review: Dangerous Beauty by J.T. Geissinger

Dangerous Beauty
Author: J. T. Geissinger
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Series: Dangerous Beauty #1

A strapping bodyguard and a mysterious beauty on the run cross paths and tempt danger in Cozumel…

For Nasir, former Special Ops military man and bodyguard, his new job seems like an easy-money gig: trail a Russian mobster's runaway wife in Mexico, enjoy the sun, observe, and report. Just one rule: don’t get too close. But it’s all Naz can do not to watch the alluring dancer’s every move. A closer look is irresistible—especially when she’s in trouble.

Evalina escaped to the island getaway to live an untraceable life—as far away from the past as she can get. But Eva can’t ignore the dark, muscled stud who rescues her from a drug gang. He says he’s an ex-cop on vacation. When providence throws them together time and again, Eva thinks it’s all a beautiful coincidence. Now she’s giving in to a strange new sensation: trust.

But Naz has a mission to accomplish and a secret to keep. Eva has her share of secrets, too. And as the heat flares between them, Naz knows that trust could become the most dangerous impulse of all.

***Part one of a three part series.***


5 stars Simply put, this book is amazing.  Dangerous Beauty is full of humor, suspense, steam, and action thus keeping me entertained until the very end.  I was very excited about this book as I was wondering where Nasir (aka Barney) was going to end up after he resigned from being Nico’s bodyguard from the Bad Habit series.  He is a strong, sexy, protective male who is tasked with keeping surveillance on Eva and the more he watches and interacts with her, the more he falls for her.  Eva is a strong character who is a survivor.  She has such great perseverance and I love how she doesn’t hold back what she says.  Her thoughts and feelings just pour out of her mouth and it has led to some humorous and witty interactions between her and Nasir.  I love the banter between the two of them and it is impossible to not want them to get their HEA. The question is, can their relationship survive the betrayal she feels when she discovers how Naz met her? Can she ever escape Dmitri?

I also enjoyed the secondary characters of Tabby and Connor.  The two of them had me laughing so hard.  (Tabby and Connor have their own book - Wicked Sexy if you want to know more about them).  My only issue is that I felt that all the of the action occurred in the last 10% of the book and then was surprised when it ended in a cliffhanger.  I am not a big fan of cliffhangers and usually won’t read the book until all the books have been  released, but I can definitely see how Naz and Eva’s story couldn’t be contained to one book. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this book.  This author has the unique ability to create a combination romantic comedy-suspense.  I cannot wait for the next installment! I received this book free.
