Dangerous Currents by @k_knightbooks Will Keep You Guessing Until the Very End! #romanticsuspense #b
Title: Dangerous Currents
Author: Kathryn Knight
Genre: Romantic Suspense
When a costly mistake ends Malorie Montgomery’s career, she returns to Cape Cod in search of a fresh start. But her plans for a new—and quiet—life are quickly derailed when she makes a grisly discovery in the woods, and her screams bring the one person from her past she’d hoped to avoid. Dean Slater, the ex-boyfriend who broke her heart in high school, now lives in the beachfront community that was supposed to be her haven…and he’s just as hot as he was six years ago.
With his rough background, Dean always knew he wasn’t good enough for the kind, intelligent beauty who claimed his heart, but somehow he’d believed their love was strong enough to survive anything—until the tragic night she turned her back on him when he needed her trust the most. Despite their painful history, Dean can’t resist the instinct to protect her, especially when it becomes apparent there’s a killer in their town.
Their former chemistry soon reignites, but Malorie has long accepted that her dark family secret has destined her to a life alone. And when she uncovers evidence that makes her the killer’s target, a deadly confrontation threatens to destroy any possibility of a second chance.
The last place Malorie expected to be was back in the same town as her high school sweetheart and the one man who crushed her heart, Dean. He’s never far from her thoughts but it’s been six years and surely, he’s moved away, right?
She’s taking her dog for a walk when she stumbles over a partially buried body. She screams bloody murder and the one man she can’t handle seeing again appears before her. In the flesh and not a part of her wild imagination, Dean appears as if to rescue her. It’s as if the universe is giving her a redo. Can she reveal her long-buried feelings towards him or is it too late? She better figure it out and soon, because there’s a killer on the loose and his sights are set on her.
I’m a huge romantic suspense fan and I must admit, Dangerous Currents had me guessing until the very end. Malorie and Dean are addictive to read and I give full credit to the author for the dual POV. Not only did I get a chance to piece together what happened six years ago, but I got to see inside Dean’s heart. He’s a blue-collar guy who work hard to get over his family’s misdeeds. He’s got a lot of pent-up feelings for Malorie and her father yet puts all that aside when her life is in danger.
The second-chance romance between Malorie and Dean lit up my e-reader. Talk about intense! There’s plenty of obstacles between these two yet if they can talk it all out, there might be a chance for a happily-ever-after for these two. Serious topics come up including mental illness, drinking, suicide and family drama. Kathryn Knight portrays it all brilliantly and I give her kudos for not glossing over it.
I started reading Dangerous Currents and couldn’t stop reading. Yes, it was that good! Highly recommend, especially if you like romantic suspense.
Disclaimer: I received an ARC from the author in the hopes I’d review it.
Favorite Character/Quote: Malorie. When I first started reading, she was a puzzle to me. I didn’t quite understand her reactions and emotions to Dean until much later. As the story unfolds, it all becomes clear and instantly I wanted to wrap my arms around her and tell her it’s going to be okay. She’s been through so much, but she doesn’t need to be alone suffering in silence anymore.
