For fans of action, suspense, and danger
Acceptable Risk by Lynette Eason should come with a warning label. “You might lose sleep when you can’t put this book down.” This story had me hooked from start to finish, with intriguing characters and a complex, action-packed plot.
This is book two in the Danger Never Sleeps series, but can definitely be read as a stand alone. Sarah Denning is a military journalist who gets discharged and sent state side after being injured during a kidnapping. Gavin Black is put in charge of her security, even though she doesn’t know her overbearing father arranged it. But Sarah stumbles headfirst into danger through a variety of circumstances. She meets a strange and disturbed woman in the hospital who disappears. Her brother commits suicide but the facts surrounding it don’t add up. And then several attempts are made on her life. It all adds up to one intense and suspense-filled novel.
Sarah’s strength shines through the story as she fights for justice for her brother and others. The plot twists are endless and the bad guys are pure evil. Gavin realizes his place isn’t “knight in shining armor” and wrestles with how to protect Sarah but give her the freedom she craves.
All suspense fans should move Acceptable Risk to the number one spot on your TBR lists. You won’t want to miss this.
Overall: 5 stars (I loved it, couldn’t put it down)
Suspense: 5 stars (Non-stop edge-of-your-seat suspense from start to finish)
