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.
Dangerous Witness is a romantic suspense and second chance romance story. Reus does such a good job with romantic suspense so I am always excited to read her books. Darcy and Brooks were in love until Brooks accused Darcy of accepting a bribe from his father. He never asked her if she took the bribe. He just thought the worst of her. Months later, he realizes he was wrong and tries to get back into her life. She is still hurt though.
Darcy is a wedding planner and she is working on her sister’s wedding to Peter Markov. Brooks recognizes that name immediately as one of the men on their list of ner-do-wells involved in criminal enterprises. Darcy overhears something she shouldn’t and now she is in danger. Brooks is the perfect man to help because he cofounded Redemption Security!
Brooks was such a dumbass. What a horrible thing to accuse the person you love of doing! So, he was NOT my favorite hero. However, I did come to understand him as the book went on. Still, his actions were douchbaggary at its finest. The story is a blend of the mystery of what Markov is up to and the second chance romance between Brooks and Darcy. Its one thing I love about Reus’ books-there is excellent balance between action/mystery/suspense and romance.
You get the camaraderie of the security team, the family drama of Brooks and his dysfunctional father, the mystery of what Markov is planning, and the rebuilding of a relationship woven throughout the story!

Claiming Grace by Susan Stoker, Into the Night by Cynthia Eden, Deep Dark by Laura Griffin …then you will probably like Dangerous Witness!
Even though its not always the easiest to read I do adore seeing two people rebuild a relationship. I do need to read this author sometime and soon though. 🙂
[…] [3 Feb] Dangerous Witness by Katie Reus ★★★★ […]
I have been wanting to try her PNR but now might have to try her RS first. Hard to find a good balance in RS reads.
