Risking it all—again.
Now his past is threatening both of them.
Deputy Tanner Dempsey paid a high price for an undercover op gone wrong. Nobody understands a dangerous past better than Bree Daniels. Together they have to take on those real-life demons in order to stay alive. Keeping one step ahead of ruthless killers is their only option and risk is their constant companion.
Security Risk by Janie Crouch continues the Bree and Tanner series and I really think the story made growth! Both Bree and Tanner develop as characters all while a murder mystery plays out that seems to frame Tanner.
I really enjoyed this very intricate murder mystery! I loved seeing Bree continue her personal growth. She is learning social/emotional skills and navigating a relationship. She isn’t perfect and I really thought Crouch did a good job of showing Bree’s struggles-when she knows she doesn’t know what to do or say.
It was also great to see the danger focused on Tanner and his past this time so Bree has a chance to be a strong support system for him as he was for her. I loved seeing her be able to get back to computers without the fears and triggers of her past. Tanner’s demons really show in Security Risk and I thought that was important. He was so strong and stable and capable in book one; it was fascinating to see what he keeps locked up behind his calm, cool exterior.
Security Risk by Janie Crouch is book 2 in the series and you need to read them in order! Fans of conspiracies, frame jobs, and mystery will enjoy this low flame romance! This is all off page sex, so if you want a romance that is “clean”, I highly recommend this series! The romance is focused on them as people and how they can be a team as a couple. Its not so much about chemistry and the sweeping lust and more about the realities of relationships (if you were once hunted by a crazy guy who tortured you).
