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.
Have I mentioned before how much i love J.T. Geissinger? No? Well, she’s the love of my book-loving life. 😄 I did a little happy dance once I found her new book on Netgalley and another one after I was granted the ARC.
This is the beginning of yet another amazing series! Dangerous Beauty is book one and unfortunately for our poor hearts it ends in a major cliffhanger. I don’t know how i’ll survive the wait. 😔
Read the blurb and you’ll see it’s indeed really dangerous and beautiful because of a Russian ballerina and a former Special Ops military Superior Man (inside joke) and bodyguard. Top that with an explosive chemistry, wicked banter, humorous dialogues and there you have it. A book you really, really, I MEAN YOU ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO READ!
She glances over and catches me staring. “What?” “I was just thinking how hideous you are,” I say solemnly. “It’s tragic, really. Must be awful, walking around with that face, scaring children. I feel sorry for you. Is there a charity I could contribute to in your name? The Quasimodo Society? The Elephant Man Foundation? I feel moved to help.” She blinks, the picture of innocence. “That’s so strange! I was just thinking the same thing about you!” “Excuse me, but I’m extraordinarily handsome. Just ask me.” She’s laughing again, which is becoming one of my favorite things. “You’re demented.” “I think you mean dashing.” “More like disfigured. You’re frighteningly large. Do you suffer from gigantism?” A grin spreads slowly across my face. “Only in certain areas, sweetheart.”
J.T. Geissinger’s female characters are always unbelievable smart, independent, strong women and Eva here is no exception. She’s also refreshingly honest. I was curious about Naz aka Barney, aka Nasir, since many books ago. He was Nico’s bodyguard (the Bad Habit series) and now he’s working for Connor and Tabby from Wicked Sexy. Naz is as alpha as one man can get, truly protective, a little misterious, loving, funny, romantic, amazing and an absolute book-boyfriend. Their relationship builds quite slowly, but you’ll be on the edge of your seat the whole time, because the plot is suspenseful and since it’s impossible not to notice Naz & Eva’s chemistry, you’ll know for sure there will be something like a nuke once they’ll be together. I felt two billion butterflies at their first kiss. ☺️
Even if i cursed like a sailor at that ending, knowing this author and loving her so much, i’m positive it’s worth waiting for the second book. Plus, Naz is a character too complex and his and Eva’s story is too dangerously beautiful to be told in just one part.
Huge thanks to that person responsible for granting me this ARC! I’m forever grateful to you. Please write my name down and send me the next one too, ok? 😂 Too much?
