I was not sure how much I would like this book as I read the information about it, but thought well let’s give it a try. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised and amazed at the depth and intrigue Dangerous Denial has to it. I loved this book. It seems to blast you with powerful subjects and writing at the beginning and then wraps those all back around to give you more intrigue and suspense as the book progresses. The characters are not so much likeable as they pull you in and do not let go. Amy Ray has written a wonderful tale that is powerful and mysterious.
BK(Beatrice Karen) and Trevor have secrets in their past that they have tried to rise above. Sometimes though the past doesn’t stay behind us. It hunts you down. The culmination of the past and present meeting is written so well the reader is not sure what is happening until the very end. The style and precision Amy Ray writes with is gripping and intense. There really is no way to read this book, except in one sitting. The twists and turns are so subtle the reader may not even know they are there. A perfectly written story of suspense and relationships.
I would recommend Dangerous Denial to any reader that enjoys top notch writing and a superb story. I truly and thoroughly enjoyed this book. It hits all the buttons and brings it all back together in a wonderfully wrapped package. You really can not put this book down. It is intense and well written. The relationships are heart wrenching. This is a great book that you need to read soon.
