Dangerous Witness by Katie Reus
Redemption Harbor #3
Darcy Cooper thought she had everything with Brooks Alexander but it all fell apart when he accused her of taking his father’s money in exchange for breaking up with him. Believing that Brooks’ feelings aren’t as strong as hers, Darcy doesn’t bother defending herself and instead throws herself into her work. When Brooks finds out what really happened 7 months ago he knows he has to win Darcy back; he’s never stopped thinking about her even when he was angry with her. But personal feelings have to be put aside when Darcy overhears some dangerous information and Redemption Harbor is brought in to protect Darcy and stop a bombing.
Dangerous Witness was a great addition to this series and I quickly breezed through it. The suspense and action was really unique in this one because of the way our villain was written. Darcy is planning her sister’s wedding and while at the soon to be father-in-law’s house she accidentally hears about a bombing being planned. She realizes the evil criminal life that Semyon is living and she can’t reconcile this with the fatherly actions Semyon displays toward her and her sister. She also has to act like everything is normal while Redemption Harbor works with the FBI to take down Semyon.
“I fucking love you, Darcy. I’m not letting you put yourself in danger.”
I also loved Brooks and Darcy and I was so happy they worked things out. Brooks made a huge error and he really hurt Darcy with his accusations but that didn’t change how they felt about each other. Neither had moved on in the 7 months since the break up and though Darcy tries to keep her distance, she can’t deny how she feelings. She doesn’t stay mad at Brooks for too long, but I feel like a part of this comes from their open communication once they start spending time together again. Brooks is very clear about the mistake he made and that he still loves Darcy.
We also get a lot of scenes between Gage and Nova! Gage knows he can’t get involved with their new employee, but that doesn’t stop the attraction he feels for her. To make things worse, he keeps putting his foot in his mouth, but Nova isn’t afraid to call him on it. I just know these two are going to set off sparks when we get their book.
4 out of 5 stars
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 the former Marine Scout Sniper 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.
