    Alena used Andre to get close enough to his father in an attempt to kill him. Revenge was all she had planned. Unfortunately, along the way she had fallen for the son of her enemy but now he has shut her out of his life. Circumstances dictate that she contact him again, but she’s wary and holds off until the night he overhears her talking to someone.

    Andre hates that he tossed Alena aside after her attempt to end his father. How was he to know if what they had shared was real and if the woman she presented to him was the real her or a fraud? Now that she’s back in his life he’s going to do anything and everything to tie her to him.

    This is a fast paced read with well-rounded characters and great chemistry between the hero and heroine. I loved that Andre went after her with everything in his arsenal, all while utilizing what he knew about her.

    The epilogue was perfect and this author once again proves she knows how to do heroes right.

    This is an honest review of an advanced copy provided by the author.

    Alena used Andre to get to his father for revenge against the murder of her parents. When Andre found out, he cast her out but has not been able to get over her. When he finds out she is pregnant with his child, he's determined to make her his despite her betrayal.

    Alena never thought she would fall for the son of a monster. She hates that she used Andre to get to the last man alive that killed her parents, but she can't see past her revenge. When Andre kicked her out of his life, she knows she deserves his mistrust. When she learns she is pregnant with his baby, she hopes he is willing to forgive her enough to co-parent their baby.

    Katie Reus's books are pure perfection. She has the perfect formula for the Alpha hero, spitfire heroines and mature storylines. I'm not a big fan of betrayal stories but the author did such a good job of creating a story where you just can't be mad at either character for what happened. In fact, I wanted them together more because of it. I loved it!

    Alena and Andre finally get their story told in

    I am glad that Katie gave this couple their own happy ending after playing such a pivotal part in Declan and Nika’s book

    No one manages to cram so much story into novella length books as Katie does, they never feel rushed and the couples always seem to have enough time spent on them that the depth and development of everything balances out perfectly with the drama and sexy-times.

    No one manages to cram so much story into novella length books as Katie does, they never feel rushed and the couples always seem to have enough time spent on them that the depth and development of everything balances out perfectly with the drama and sexy-times.

    This is a couple with history, not a great one, because Alena essentially faked interest in Andre in order to get close to his father, the man who brutally murdered her parents, years previously. What she didn’t anticipate was discovering that Andre is nothing like his father, and that she would fall deeply in love with him.

    A few months on from the failed murder attempt, Alena has not seen Andre since the truth emerged, but she hasn’t walked away completely unscathed, when she discovers she is pregnant with his child.

    It doesn’t take long for Andre to find out, once Alena returns to Miami to help her sister plan her wedding, he basically turns back into the uber protective, alpha male she originally fell for. As you would expect, there is a little suspense thrown in, nothing to taxing or strenuous to the story itself, but it bought about the climax of this novella nicely and tied off a few loose ends.

    I read this in one sitting, and as always it was an enjoyable and engaging reading experience.

    With strong endearing characters, sizzling sexy-time and plenty of tender moments,

    makes it a hat-trick of Katie Reus reads for me and she’s firmly cemented herself onto my autoread list.

    , Alena and Andre parted ways under less then ideal circumstances. Trying to kill your boyfriend's mobster father kind of kills any chance of pursuing a relationship with him, even if what started off as a means to an end turned out to be far more than Alena ever thought.

    But a surprise pregnancy changes things. Alena knows she can't keep Andre from his child and although she knows he may never forgive her and might even hate her, she is determined to keep him in the loop.

    Andre knows why Alena did what she did, even though he hates the idea that everything they had shared was a lie, he can't hate her. She haunts him and finding out that she is carrying his child gives him the perfect excuse to bring her back into his life. After months apart, he knows Alena is his and this time around, Andre won't let her go.

    Katie Reus did it again. Tempting Danger had amazing MCs, sizzling tension, hot chemistry and a touching love story. I had a great time reading this one!

    This was riddled with a lot of growly alpha behavior and yummy possessiveness. I really, really like Andre when he lost control and gave in to his base instincts when it came to Alena.

    My biggest problem in this book was my own fault apparently. I am used to stand-alone books by Katie Reus and this one is not exactly an independent book. You should read Retribution before you get your hands on this one. During the whole time I was reading it I felt like I was missing something and judging from the blurb of the first book, my guess is all the events of Retribution.

    My biggest problem in this book was my own fault apparently. I am used to stand-alone books by Katie Reus and this one is not exactly an independent book. You should read Retribution before you get your hands on this one. During the whole time I was reading it I felt like I was missing something and judging from the blurb of the first book, my guess is all the events of Retribution. It wasn't a good time to not read the first book because this story is based on whatever happened there. I am not recommending to read this book as stand alone because it will ruin your reading experience and no one wants that. Apparently, we got to see Andre and Alena being in a relationship in the other book and in this one they are mending what Alena broke. The book practically fixes what was broken in the previous one. Despite my not so good connection with the book, I liked this one even though I gave it a low rating. I would have loved it if I knew better what went down between them. I am sure the readers who have read the previous book will love this one. I liked this kind of second chance romance.

    Although Tempting Danger can be read as a stand alone it is clearly a second book and the characters/plot were introduced in the first book (which I haven't read). I think this definitely affected my enjoyment of this book and would strongly recommend reading the first book prior to this one.

    Although Tempting Danger can be read as a stand alone it is clearly a second book and the characters/plot were introduced in the first book (which I haven't read). I think this definitely affected my enjoyment of this book and would strongly recommend reading the first book prior to this one.

    Alena is a model who set out to get justice for her parents who were CIA operatives and murdered by four men. In order to get close to the final killer (she has previously killed the other three) she starts a relationship with his son, Andre. Andre is nothing like his father and although she feels guilty she needs to finish what she started. Unfortunately when she tries to kill his father she is thwarted and Andre realizes that she had lied to him and was just using him to get to his father. (All this happens in the first book which centers around her sister who is helping her and is psychic).

    There is a large amount of backstory and obviously a lot of prior relationship/character development that happened in the first book. This book starts four months later with Alena pregnant with Andre's baby. She decides to tell him but is afraid of his reaction. Of course he figures it out before she gets a chance to tell him. Andre understands why Alena did what she did but he hates that she used him to do it. I thought Andre forgave/accepted Alena a bit too quickly and I think Alena should have had to work a bit harder for his forgiveness.

    I think this book will be much more enjoyable/interesting to those who have read the first book and want to see the resolution between Alena and Andre.

    A copy of this book was provided to me by NetGalley and the publisher with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book and my comments here are my honest opinion.

    I read the first book in the series (Retribution) primarily to read this one because I can't read out of sequence and to be honest I wish I hadn't bothered with this one. I struggled to connect with both characters - I knew going into this one that I wasn't a fan of the h (can't even remember her name that shows how much of an impact she had on me!), although Andre was the better of the two.

    The ridiculous miscommunication towards the end didn't help either.
