He foolishly let her go…
When the woman he loved walked out of his life, Brooks Alexander was certain she did so willingly—with the cool two-million his father had offered as incentive to walk away. So when he learns that Darcy didn’t take a dime of his father’s payoff, Brooks realizes he made an epic mistake. He’s determined to make things right and reclaim his woman. Except neither task is as easily accomplished as he first thought.
Now her life is in his hands…
Wedding planner Darcy is no stranger to disappointment when it comes to the men in her life. When Brooks accused her of taking his father’s bribe, she was devastated that he thought so little of her—and realized he never knew her at all. So she walked away with her pride intact and her heart broken. Now, months later, an overheard conversation puts Darcy in the crosshairs of a dangerous criminal with powerful connections. With nowhere else to turn, she has no choice but to put all her trust in Redemption Harbor Consulting—and its cofounder, the man who broke her heart.
As I’ve mentioned before, I’m not huge fan of second chance romance, but I’ve read a a fair few by Katie Reus, and I usually enjoy her second chance romances. So, I decided to give Dangerous Witness a try. Unfortunately, this one wasn’t a hit for me.
Dangerous Witness is about Brooks, a wealthy man from a wealthy family, and Darcy, a wedding planner with a brand new business. Darcy and Brooks dated for a bit, but Brooks thought Darcy took money from his meddling father, and broke it off with her. Darcy was very upset, but gets on with her life. Brooks realizes his mistake, and wants to get back together with Darcy. Darcy isn’t sure she wants to go there, but when she overhears a secret plot to hurt kids, she has to rely on Brooks and Redemption Harbor Consulting to keep her safe and to stop the secret plot.
Let’s talk about what I liked first. I absolutely did like both Darcy and Brooks. Brooks obviously was an idiot for the way he broke things off with Darcy, but he does realize it (months later!). He definitely takes the time to apologize to Darcy. And I really liked Darcy, too. She’s working so hard to make her new wedding planning business a success. She’s not afraid to tell Brooks what a jerk he was. Of course, she does eventually forgive him. Brooks and Darcy had great chemistry and I liked them as a couple.
However, as much as I liked Darcy and Brooks together, so much of Dangerous Witness was focused on the suspense. I wanted MORE romance. There just wasn’t enough of it. I just got bored. If you like the suspense aspect more in romantic suspense, Dangerous Witness might be more up your alley. But for me, there just wasn’t enough romance.
