Mixing the past and present could have dangerous consequences…
I’ve always been a man of second chances, forgiving Arianna proved that. Sometimes, a second opportunity was all someone needed to do things right. I knew that better than anyone. Now that I had my girl back and business was prospering, things were finally falling into place. Little did I know, my newfound happiness wouldn’t last very long.
When a man responsible for my near demise resurfaces, my life is shaken up once again. What seemed like an innocent, harmless favor quickly turned out to be a malicious scheme that put my business, relationship, and freedom at risk.
With time running out, I race around the city piecing together the complicated puzzle I was a part of, only to come face to face with the men responsible. In this erotic suspense, will my past repeat itself in order to settle a score or am I doomed to take the fall for something I didn’t do?
Dangerous Concoctions is definitely one of a kind and totally unexpected!
(Or probably because I didn’t read the synopsis and jump straight to reading it!)
Let me introduce Zane, (and I quote) the ‘Poster Child of Second Chances’. I have rarely, or almost never, read about any characters who is first of all, a chef and second of all, able to forgive an ex.
Of course, it’s not just the part where he is able to forgive his ex, but for many things, he doesn’t hold grudges and always gives people a second chance. Out of so many things I love about Zane, this is definitely one of them!
For the longest time, I couldn’t understand why Kelsey hated Arianna so much. Okay, well, I do. Arianna lied about everything to her brother, Zane. It’s only until the point where the happenings between Arianna and Zane was revealed through Kelsey’s conversation with her brother, then I understood why.
Despite Kelsey’s hatred, I honestly think she’s a really cool and feisty character! I’m definitely looking forward to reading any novels about her and it would be even more entertaining if she could have some sort of revenge!
When I read about Arianna, I actually love how strong she is! Desperate times drove her to desperate measures and although the sting of the betrayal hurts for Zane, she still loves him. Just because of her love, she had to withstand so many instances of having her hear broken.
When all was well, hell broke loose and okay, so was my feels!
I guess the saying, “some people never change”, is true in this case. Jericho is an ass and a betrayal till the end of time.
Well-developed characters, amazing writing and story, plot twists out of nowhere to add onto the suspense…what more could you ask for?!
Highly recommended for all readers!
