Note: I received this review copy of Bound to Danger (Deadly Ops #2) by Katie Reus for free through BookBridgr in return for an honest review. The opinions and thoughts I share in this review are my own.

 

Bound to Danger is the second book in the Deadly Ops series. Although it is in a series, it can be read as a standalone novel although characters who were previously major characters do show up in minor roles. This does not detract at all and seems to be the way for series of this type. It comes firmly under the genre heading ‘Romantic Suspense’ – my absolute favourite right now. The story was exciting and the characters real and appealing.

While attending a benefit dinner, Maria Cervantes overhears men plotting a terrorist attack. Before she can alert the authorities however, the building explodes and almost everyone is killed. As the only guest still alive, Maria becomes a person of interest to the NSA. With her memory of the evening gone however, she only remembers that she knows something important; not what. With an NSA agent needed to babysit/bodyguard the survivor, one man takes the job. Cade O’Reilly. Maria is the woman he never forgot, having abandoned her following the death of his best friend – her brother in Afghanistan. Cade though, as a member of the NSA’s Black Death 9 agents is the person who will protect Maria whether she likes it or not. As they get closer and Maria starts to regain her memories, Cade and Maria must decide if they want to let each other go again.

I really enjoyed this book. I found the explanations for words at the beginnings of chapters were really good – it was something relevant to the oncoming chapter and helped to explain to someone who has a vague idea but no proper definition. I also really liked the old emails between Maria and Cade every now and again throughout the book. It really brought out the old relationship between the two and added a lot of backstory. Along with all that, the action and the excitement I certainly enjoyed the romance part – I found it rather stimulating *ahem*. Warning: This book is not for under 18’s.

I found everything in the story so well described I had a perfect picture of the whole book in my head. The muscles, the guns, the boats and so on all came to life inside my head. Thank you Katie for such a fantastic book!
