*I received a copy of this book in exchange for honest review*
"You were made to see and believe in the good in people. That's part of who you are, but sometimes our greatest strength is also our greatest weakness. Believing in others, trusting others, can open you up for heartache."
When Lacey Jordan’s father goes missing, she is reunited with her former lover, Caleb Mansfield, the person who broke her heart six years ago, and someone she doesn’t want to see, and doesn’t trust. As much as she hates to admit, she soon realises that Caleb may be the only person who can really help her find her father.
Lacey was feisty, independent and not afraid to say what she was thinking. She would do anything to save her father, even risking her own life. Caleb was strong-minded, caring and he would do whatever it took to get Lacey to see that she could trust him again and help her find her father.
Dangerous Ally was a romantic suspense novel that I read in one sitting. The suspense aspect of the story line, with its twists and turns, definitely kept me guessing as to what was going to happen next. The romance aspect had me smiling many times.
I liked Lacey and Caleb even though they did frustrate me a few times with their choices. They definitely had plenty of chemistry, and you could see that they were still very much attracted to each other. Their relationship wasn’t always plain sailing. Lacey was-and quite rightly so-suspicious of Caleb’s actions because of the history that they shared.
The story is mainly told from the POV of Lacey and Caleb; however, you get the POV of a few other characters, which was interesting. Sometimes this doesn’t work as it can get confusing, but I liked it in this instance as it gave you an insight into what the detectives and the people responsible for Lacey’s father’s disappearance were thinking.
Overall, Dangerous Ally was an enjoyable read from the start. It was the first book I have read by Michelle Grey, and I will be checking out her other books. If you like books with some suspense, mystery, sexiness, romance and lets not forget second chance love then I would add this one to you TBR list.
Michelle Grey has always been an avid lover of books. After surviving a run-in with ovarian cancer, Michelle decided that there would never be a better time to pursue her dream of becoming a romantic suspense author. Her debut novel, Dangerous Ally, launched in January 2013 followed by Unspoken Bonds, which released in September 2013.
Michelle lives in the Midwest with her husband of twenty-five plus years and has four amazing and unique children, a great son-in-law, and two beautiful granddaughters. For her, any day that involves family, writing, or reading is a great day, indeed.
