The author of Flirting with Scandal presents her third book in a sexy contemporary romance series about three sisters in a powerful political family, the scandals that threaten to destroy them, and the passion that drives them…
Kate Reynolds has just graduated from college and is determined to make it on her own. Her job as a junior political analyst at the CIA is a dream come true and the perfect opportunity to find answers about the night that’s plagued her for four years—the night she lost her fiancé, Matt, on a Special Forces mission in Afghanistan. Kate’s consumed with uncovering the truth and avenging the man she loved and lost, even if it means risking her own life to prove that his death wasn’t an accident.
When she gets too close to discovering what happened that fateful night and danger arrives on her doorstep, Kate’s stunned by the man who comes to her rescue. Together, they begin to dig for the truth, fighting to stay alive as they’re dragged down into a world of secrets and lies. But when the threat hits close to home, Kate must choose between vengeance and a future with the man who’s ignited a fire inside her that she thought died long ago.
Chanel Cleeton saved her best for last in the third and final installment of the Capital Confessions series. Kate the bitter youngest daughter of Senator Reynolds and sister of Jackie and Blair, who we met in books 1 and 2, is a tough-spirited and independent young woman who’s bent on avenging the death of her fiancé, Matt. Kate believes that her father and Matt’s father were involved in his death and has spent the last four years studying, researching and making noise to uncover the truth. Her digging has now landed her in trouble as she becomes the unwitting target that needs to be silenced immediately. But there is someone in the shadows who's on her side, who's bound and determined to protect her no matter what the cost. Now it’s up to Kate to accept that help. But she is stubborn and having been fueled entirely by her rage the last few years, it’s hard for her to just stop her investigation even though it might get her killed.
Falling For Danger has action, suspense, twists and heat that readers will doubtless enjoy. Best of all is that we finally get a close-up look at the infamous Senator Reynolds who has played a heavy hand in the lives of his daughters. He’s a delightful piece of work and it’s clear why his daughters distance themselves from him. Despite being a little naïve about her safety, Kate refuses to back down. I really admired Kate’s bravery and the guts she had to continue to fight for justice.
I’ve said this before in my review for this series, if you’re a Scandal fan and want some of that seedy political intrigue mixed with some passionate romance, then you should definitely pick this up!
