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.
⤖ My Review ⬻
I will sometimes watch action movies with my boyfriend and have found that I really enjoy when the action is good, the plot is good, and they add in a romance with lots of chemistry as well. That’s what I pictured when requesting Dangerous Beauty. Something like Red Sparrow meets a Jason Statham movie was what I was picturing. When I picked the book up and started reading however, I found that the writing and atmosphere were different from what I expected.
I actually didn’t click with the writing at all. At times I found that the writing was not what I wanted at all of this kind of plot and it would jar me enough to pull me out of the story (which of course affected my overall experience). There was definitely chemistry between Nasir and Evalina, and that was the part that I liked most. And I have to say that the ending definitely made me curious about the sequel. There are definitely things to like about this book and I wouldn’t let my opinion about the writing stop any of you from picking it up if the synopsis calls to you!
