Dangerous Games is the latest romantic suspense thriller from USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Riley Edwards. New series, new steamy, hot heroes. Welcome to TAKEBACK.
Dylan wasn’t ready for Sawyer. He wasn’t ready to confront the truth of his past. He wasn’t ready to admit he’s fallen in love with the sweet, sexy woman who captivated him from the moment he saw her. He’s especially not prepared to face the hurt he’s caused Sawyer. But to keep her, he must do all three. She’s the right woman who came along at the wrong time, and after a night he can’t remember, Dylan will stop at nothing to regain her trust. Not easy when Sawyer’s family has betrayed her trust time and again.
Sawyer thought she’d finally landed the man of her dreams. She thought the night she’d spent with Dylan was the start of something special. Until Dylan says the wrong thing at the wrong time and Sawyer retreats back into her private world, convinced that what her family has always said about her is true—she doesn’t deserve love.
Can Dylan open up to Sawyer about his past? Can she confide in him about her present? As Sawyer and Dylan fight to find their way to a future together, a deadly vendetta against a Tripe Canopy client grows. When Sawyer gets caught up in the danger, it’s a race to save her before their dreams go up in flames.
I’d repeated the lie so many times I’d almost convinced myself it was the truth.
Our friendship was accidental. A lost phone, a string of text messages that led to a once-a-year birthday text. The real trouble started when we upped the game and called each other. Those phone calls strengthened our connection and solidified our bond. Fourteen years later I was in love with a man who knew me down to the deepest depths of my soul—but I’d never seen him, not even a picture. That was our deal; no last names, no pictures, and the promise to never internet search the other.
I upheld that promise.
River did not.
I was not prepared for the man who showed up at my bookstore. River Kent was tall—so damn tall, good-looking, so damn hot he took my breath, crystal blue eyes, so damn captivating I couldn’t look away. But mostly he was a bossy, straightforward, tell-no-lies type of man. Which didn’t work for me since I’d been lying through my teeth for years denying my true feelings.
More than that, I was not prepared to face River months after my sister had been murdered. I wasn’t ready to deal with the knowledge that she was gone and in the weeks leading up to her death I’d turned my back on her. The guilt was eating at me.
River wasn’t prepared to take no for an answer.
Chaos and confusion had taken over my life. And to make matters worse, I found myself in the middle of a horrific child trafficking case. Okay, to be fair, I didn’t find myself there, I’d purposefully inserted myself into the TAKEBACK investigation. And since I’d volunteered to go undercover, River did more than insert himself—he took over and declared himself my protector.
Did I mention I was madly, deeply in love with him? Did I mention he was the man of my dreams? Did I mention River thought going undercover was dangerous, crazy, and not a good idea? Turns out River was right and just when all of my wildest dreams had come true they were torn away and I was left in shambles.
One night. No names. Two hearts forever changed.
There wasn’t a lot that surprised me. My years in the Navy taught me a lot, my years hunting human traffickers taught me the rest. Meeting a beautiful woman in a bar and spending the night with her should’ve been a blip on my radar. Instead, I spent years trying to forget her. In the middle of a rescue operation, fate dropped her back into my life, but there was a twist—she wasn’t alone.
I lived and breathed romance. I was a true believer in love-at-first-sight-happily-ever-afters. Then I found myself staring at a sexy stranger across a crowded bar, fell in love, and spent six hours living out my wildest fantasies. But I ran when I learned love at first sight stole your breath and left you afraid of a broken heart.
