Blurb: He foolishly let her go…
When the woman he loved walked out of his life, Brooks Alexander was certain she did so willingly—with the cool two-million his father had offered as incentive to walk away. So when he learns that Darcy didn’t take a dime of his father’s payoff, Brooks realizes he made an epic mistake. He’s determined to make things right and reclaim his woman. Except neither task is as easily accomplished as he first thought.
Now her life is in his hands…
Wedding planner Darcy is no stranger to disappointment when it comes to the men in her life. When Brooks accused her of taking his father’s bribe, she was devastated that he thought so little of her—and realized he never knew her at all. So she walked away with her pride intact and her heart broken. Now, months later, an overheard conversation puts Darcy in the crosshairs of a dangerous criminal with powerful connections. With nowhere else to turn, she has no choice but to put all her trust in Redemption Harbor Consulting—and its cofounder, the man who broke her heart.
Favorite quote(s): I’m more confused than a chameleon in a bag of Skittles.
Thoughts: I have been eagerly awaiting Dangerous Witness since the last book in this series. I LOVED book two Savage Rising, and it is still my favorite in the series – and even one of my favorites from Reus, even though I adore all her books. Dangerous Witness gives us the story of Brooks and Darcy, and boy, does Brooks have some amends to make. It was kind of cute seeing him scramble to try to win Darcy over, when he knows how bad he screwed up. Poor Brooks is in the dog house with the love of his life and it’s slow going for him to win her over – eventually Darcy comes around and things start to steam up. The ‘danger’ element of this one didn’t keep me on my toes as much as the usual suspense from Reus, seemingly rather like a side note to the story. We also have a few characters (potential next book) that have a scene or two randomly thrown in that weren’t quite as smoothly interjected as I would have liked. The characters and the romance made up for it though.
As always, a solid hit from Reus and a great addition to this series! Thoroughly enjoyable!
