To maintain her cover and keep her family off her back, they fake a relationship.
Having spent her whole life trying to prove she’s just as capable as her three older brothers, art retrieval expert Ivy Danger has landed the biggest gig of her career, one that will pay off the mortgage of the animal shelter she owns. That is, if she doesn’t die before finishing the job. Even if she locates the stolen art, the violent gang of thieves won’t give up their million-dollar payday without a fight. She has one person she can turn to for help—Nash Harris. Security expert, her brother’s best friend…and the gorgeous man of her fantasies who treats her like a kid sister. Not that she’d do anything about her attraction anyway—not when it would screw up her family dynamic if things went sideways between them.
Now it’s impossible to tell what’s real and what’s not.
Despite having known Ivy forever, “brotherly” is the last thing Nash feels for the sexy troublemaker. She’s it for him. The One. He’s known it for a while…but convincing Ivy is another matter. When they have to fake a relationship for her current job, things shift between them. They’ve worked together before, but she’s in over her head with this latest job. But before anything can come of it, he’ll have to keep her alive when she’s targeted by a dangerous group known for violent retaliation. Nash will do whatever it takes to keep her safe, to prove she can trust him—on the job, with her life, and with her heart.
Red Stone Security Series, #17Author note: all books in this series may be read as stand-alones, complete with HEA.
Saving Danger delivers an art heist with some serious danger involved. I loved Ivy’s job as an art retrieval specialist. What an interesting profession. But, her passion is the animal shelter and that made me love her even more.
Saving Danger blends a brother’s best friend trope among the secrets and danger. Nash has always had a thing for Ivy, and Ivy has always had a thing for Nash. But, Ivy travels for work, and neither feels that they could make a move because of the brother. But, when Ivy gets involved in a very dangerous retrieval, Nash is not going to let her go it alone. Then the story twists to a fake relationship trope! I really enjoyed it because the characters are likable and the story is really captivating.
Fans of romantic suspense will enjoy Saving Danger and it can be a quick binge read. I love this series and Saving Danger was another winner for me.

Using the back stairs, she headed toward one of the rear doors and made her way out into the sunlight. She had a couple more stops to make but… She pulled her phone out as she headed toward the nearby sidewalk.
There was one person she wanted to call even though she knew she shouldn’t.
One of her brother’s best friends, the man who starred in all of her fantasies, and hell, was one of her best friends, if she was being honest. She might not be telling her family that she was in town, but she would tell him. It would feel wrong not to. And if she was being honest, she wanted to see him. Craved it, even.
Not that she didn’t have the sharp planes of his face memorized or dream about how kissable his lips looked—or fantasize about running her fingers through his dark brown hair. The man always kept it so short and it looked so damn soft. Aaaand she was getting off track.
Maybe she’d just have one dinner with him. Get a glimpse of his fine ass and get her fix until the next time they got to meet up. It wasn’t enough but it would have to do for now.
