Book Review: Dangerous Games (O’Connor & Kincaid #1)
Title: Dangerous Games (O’Connor & Kincaid #1)
Author: Tess Diamond
Stars 4 out of 5
I will start off with I am not much into cliffhangers when it comes to books. I need a complete book from beginning to end with some sort of resolve otherwise I feel short changed. Yes the author Tess Diamond did give you the kidnapper but I still feel like if she wanted to have a cliffhanger she could have given a little more meat to the story.
The ending of the book was a nail biter but it felt more like an episode of 24 than a compete novel.
Meggie our female lead was The best FBI hostage negotiator but when things go wrong on her last case Meggie leaves the FBI. Meggie former boss pulls her back in for one last case a Senator daughter has been kidnapped. While in search of the daughter former special forces security expert Jake O’Connor tries to push Meggie out of the way until they both realize they need each other to find the missing daughter. Yes sexual attention is in the air but they both know their job to find the missing girl.
I enjoyed the gym scene it gave the book a little more light when Meggie suggested Jake was a meat head.
With the book being a cliffhanger I needed more meat to Meggie background her kidnapping and why she joined the FBI. I personally felt it was skimmed over to quickly in this book.
It is a quick paced story that keeps the reader hooked. Tess Diamond keeps a great pace so the book never has a dull or slow moment which will keep the reader hooked until the end.
Tess writes like the style of Kendra Elliot but lacks the polish that will set this book apart from others in the same genre.
Thank you to author for providing me the E-copy for my honest review.
A thirteen year-old girl has been taken - and Special Agent Maggie Kincaid is the only one who can get her back.
When a Senator’s daughter goes missing, every minute counts. The FBI’s best hostage negotiator, Agent Kincaid, knows what it’s like to be a terrified victim. Kidnapped as a child, those memories haunt her every day - and give her an insight into the evil mind behind this deadly crime.
But the Senator’s family has other plans, and have brought in ex-forces security expert Jake O’Connor to oversee negotiations. He’s got secrets of his own, and doesn’t play by the same rule book. With time running out, Maggie and O’Connor will have to overcome their differences to keep this case from ending in tragedy.
