The Caribbean: home to crystalline beaches, scorching passions, and a twisted power hell-bent on destruction. DANGEROUSLY YOURS is a sizzling paranormal romance in which love is not the only force of natureÔÇª
Whales donÔÇÖt just vanish from the ocean, but marine biologist Lex Durand saw one do just that. With years of research at stake and driven by the imperatives of her telepathic bloodline, she seeks the help of scientist-in-hiding Bodie Flynn - a man with little regard for others, and even less regard for LexÔÇÖs wealthy and secretive family. But while Lex was warned Bodie would be difficult, she never expects to find he has psychic abilities equal to her own.
Bodie despises being trapped in Durand TechÔÇÖs version of the witness protection program, and when a gorgeous, whip-smart Durand heiress lands on his beach asking for help, heÔÇÖs unhappier still. The last person he wants in his life is the sister of the man who ruined him, but the disappearance of LexÔÇÖs whales could be related to the bizarre energy shifts heÔÇÖs been studying in the Caribbean. He doesnÔÇÖt trust Lex, but he needs her data, and isnÔÇÖt above using her to get it.
As the dangerous force behind the changing seas becomes deadly, Lex and Bodie must put aside their personal agendas to track down a powerful foe. But when their attraction reaches a boiling point, facing their feelings may prove the hardest battle yet.
Dangerously Yours is an amazing debut novel by Lark Brennan, and IÔÇÖm incredibly happy that I had the chance to read it. This paranormal romance is unlike so many others IÔÇÖve read in the past. Lark has created a world that is unique, well-developed, complex, and fascinating.
Lex Durand is a marine biologist conducting a research on whales and dolphins in the Caribbean. But Lex is more than just thatÔÇöshe can communicate with animals. She comes from a long line of Telepaths who call themselves the Protectors and fight a covert fight against the bad guys, the Dissemblers. ItÔÇÖs a century old fight that humansÔÇöthe ordinariesÔÇöhave no clue is happening. However, when suddenly some of LexÔÇÖs whales go missing, and her dolphins start attacking people for no reason, Lex needs help from fellow scientist Bodie Flynn, who is not exactly happy about her appearance and reluctant to help.
Bodie Flynn is in hiding. After he is attacked by what he thinks are government agents, Mark Durand (LexÔÇÖs brother) puts him in what constitutes as witness protection after saving his life. He now spends his time on his ship, doing research, barely ever leaving it for more than getting provisions. When Lex shows up asking for his help, he is weary to trust her, and the only reason as to why he helps her is because he thinks his research is being misused for nefarious reasons. And so starts a race to against time to figure out who is exploiting BodieÔÇÖs research and killing people and animals with it.
I loved both Bodie and Lex and their dynamic. They both are weary of the other, unsure if they can trust each other, especially with all the secrets between them. But the attraction between them is undeniable. Between trying to figure out who is misusing BodieÔÇÖs research, figuring out what happened to the animals, and fighting their attraction, this multifaceted romance has a lot to offer.
Dangerously Yours is definitely a new, and very complex take on paranormal romance and I loved it! It is different, unique, and extremely well-written. I canÔÇÖt wait for the next book in the series to be released! Definitely recommend this beauty!
