Review: Tempting Danger by Katie Reus

Due to a scheduling snafu (Probably on my part), this review was supposed to go live LAST Friday but didn't. So here it is today!

They’re enemies.
Alena Brennan’s relationship with Andre Makarov is… complicated. The casino magnate was a means to an end. Nothing more. At least that was what she tried to tell herself. Then she fell for him. Hard. But he kicked her out of his life when he discovered her lies.

Now she’s pregnant with his baby.
Andre understands why Alena wanted revenge. His father took everything from her, leaving her an orphan at a young age. But Andre still had to cut her out of his life. Now that his father is dead, she’s safe. He should just move on. But when he learns she’s carrying his child, all pretense is gone—he’ll protect Alena whether she likes it or not. She may kick up a fuss, but Andre knows the gorgeous model with a party-girl rep attracts attention…including the dangerous sort.

What’s it About? Alena Brennan’s relationship with Andre Makarov fell apart the moment he found out she was using him to get revenge on his father. It didn’t matter that Alena had every reason to want Andre’s father dead, or that she had started to care for Andre, he still ended it. Now his father is dead and Andre just found out that Alena is pregnant with his child and he wants her back, no matter what.

Overall reaction to the story? I completely missed the first book which sets up this second chance romance for Andre and Alena but I was able to follow along just fine. It’s Katie Reus so I know it’s going to be an interesting ride. I wasn’t disappointed in Andre and Alena’s story, not only is it a second chance romance, it also showed the fallout of Alena’s failed revenge plot.

I’m not into the Surprise/Oops/Secret Baby trope but I trust Katie Reus as an author not to disappoint. Plus it’s a sure thing that sparks will fly between her characters. Andre and Alena didn’t trust each other but at the same time they still wanted each other. I liked the way their relationship went from suspicious to passionate because it gave them a chance to get to know each other without revenge or hatred between them. Alena was able to be herself completely without worrying about maintaining her cover. Andre is a bit overbearing and possessive but it suited him and his background and I never found him to be unreasonable only when it came to Alena’s safety.

There was a little bit of a suspense plot in Tempting Danger that added a touch more spice to the novella but it didn’t take away from the rebuilding of Andre and Alena’s relationship and I didn’t feel like it was rushed to its conclusion either. All in all a well paced short romance that satisfied.
