Blog Tour & Giveaway: Intimate Danger by D C Stone
Charlie has followed in her father's footsteps and has become a Detective. Finally put onto a case other than something simple, easy and safe, and she is determined to prove that she can catch the criminal. That is until the FBI and Agent Trent Rossi turns up.The attraction between the two of them threatens to cause problems in the investigation, particularly when Trent starts to become more mysterious and Charlie can't explain it. With the criminal stepping up his game and getting more and more dangerous, it is a race against time to stop him, particularly when it seems that Charlie could become the next victim...
Oh my I want more! I barely ever read crime books, and I really don't know why, especially after reading Intimate Danger. There is also some romance elements but I definitely felt that it was the suspense that kept me reading (and I read the book in one sitting).
I really enjoyed trying to figure out who it was that was the criminal. And honestly I didn't figure it out until there started to be a lot of hints about it, that was even with the criminal's point of view being put across several times. For a while I thought that it was Dwaynne, actually for the majority of it I thought it was Dwaynne until there was one description that completely put to bed. The main suspicion that Charlie had I couldn't get my head round, though feeling it wasn't right there was no way of knowing for sure. When the reveal did come it was at a very intense moment, and really added to the suspense.
The chemistry and banter between Charlie and Trent were definitely on good form. Thought they were actually fairly slow acting on their attraction, you could tell that it was there and that it affected them a lot. It also meant that they got a fair bit of banter between them, particularly relating to Charlie using Trent's name (or refusing to!) I really hoped they'd get together through the whole book! They were just so good for each other.
I can't really explain exactly what it was that I loved about this book, but I definitely did, and I will definitely be looking out for more in this series!
Intimate Danger by D.C. Stone
When FBI agent Trent Rossi arrives to investigate a chain of crimes—devastating murders and violent rapes—an inexperienced small town Detective, Charlie, who’s assigned to assist, finds her desire surging for the agent—only to realize he is the primary suspect. A sleeping threat has awakened in the small town of Nyack. Crimes in the cozy village, garner the attention of the FBI, who assign two agents to assist Charlie in tracking down the sick and deranged perpetrator. Agents Trent Rossi and Dillon Echols work closely with Charlie, but as the crimes progress, dark secrets begin to cloud the air, blurring the line between who is on the side of the law and who’s against it. Being Charlie’s first major case, she’s unprepared not only for the menacing killer on the loose, but also with the unexpected feelings Trent draws out of her. While Trent holds secrets, disappears at random, and seems to understand their perpetrator all-too-well, Charlie’s suspicions grow along with the pull she feels toward him. Her attraction could become fatal, yet she does not realize it until it is too late.
What Could Have by D.C. Stone Annabelle and Lucas have just enlisted in the United States Air Force. The two live on opposite sides of the country, but are drawn together by a common goal, and a common connection. Their friendship blooms, their trust grows, and the lust between them explodes. There are two problems with this situation, though. Neither of them communicate to the other on how they feel. And both of them fight against it. Choices are taken out of their hands when, upon graduating from training, Annabelle and Lucas find that instead of being on opposite sides of the country, they will be on opposite sides of the world. Ten years later, a common website has brought Annabelle and Lucas back in contact. The two of them have found each other after so many years; however, now, both are promised to others. A brief kiss. A heartbreaking realization. And an accident. Choices made that are, once again, taken out of their hands.
