The Delight

Eva’s journey from imprisonment to freedom and back to being captive is chronicled. But this is captivity by a rich, evil, diabolical man who feels that she is his property to abuse as he wants. But. The story of Eva and Naz, the man she fell in love with while free, is the heart of this book and was my favorite part of this trilogy.

Review

Dangerous Games is the final installment in this author’s Dangerous Beauty trilogy. I was really excited to finally learn how the main characters, Eva and Naz, would get their happy ending. The story jumps right into the action. As the last book was smack in the middle of everything when it ended, I was happy to see that there was no lag in the storytelling. Eva’s worse nightmare is upon her, as she is back in the hands of the most evil villain that I’ve read about in quite awhile. This man kept her imprisoned for years prior to her escape. Because of this, after being taken again, the book is the darkest of the series and was uncomfortable to read at times. To imagine that such monsters probably actually exist and see his handiwork was hard. Naz was horribly injured during a shootout, so Killian comes back into the story. Killian is some sort of super spy, agent or assassin with a soft spot for Eva. Naz, against his better judgement, had to allow Killian to try and save Eva. And I think I will stop with most of the details there. No spoilers!

I continued to love Eva and Naz. Each were strong characters with flaws, especially Naz, and I enjoyed any scene that they were in together or apart for that matter. I say that Naz is flawed, but it’s the flaw of a horrible temper, especially when bad things happen to Eva. He’s hardheaded to the extreme. But it worked, because it was all about his love for Eva. It’s the most difficult thing for him to have to ask Killian to help him, but he does it anyway. Eva wasn’t going to let her evil ex torture her for long, and she stood up to him like she never had before. So she was way stronger after learning how good it could be to be free and it helped her. Killian flat out just needs his own book. His character is so nuanced, so interesting, that I have to have more.

And speaking of more, I just wish it had been longer as it was a shorter than normal read, but not a novella. I mean, I don’t know what else could possibly happen because so much does, but it would have been a definite plus to have more, because I’m greedy like that. And lastly, I just wish that Eva and Naz had more time together on the page. The story had to go where it went and Eva had to leave, but it just feels like we didn’t get enough time with them together. At least I didn’t.

J.T. Geissinger continues to amaze me with her writing skills. All of her work is nothing short of amazing and this book and trilogy fits right in. There’s not as much banter in this one due to the dark nature of a big portion of this, but there still is some and I enjoyed it as always. There’s violence, sexual situations and plenty of action and the pace was fast the closer you get to the end. I should warn you that these books go in order so if you try and read this without reading the others, you will be completely lost. I would highly recommend this and the entire trilogy to adult romantic suspense readers or contemporary romance for that matter. Great end to the trilogy!

The following two tabs change content below.
I’m a lifetime book addict and currently own nine Kindles, with only six still working. I do tend to wear them out! They pretty much are my favorite technology-well that and my cell phone. Okay, yes and my laptop. I spent most of my life in Kentucky, but moved to Maryland in my attempt to get closer to the the ocean a few years ago. Being retired helps. I have a B.S. degree in law enforcement with a minor in sociology, but never really worked in my major. Instead, I spent my entire adult life working in the medical field in some capacity. After retiring(early), I found my passion in reviewing books for a couple of blogs and I love it. My author favorites include, Dannika Dark, Amber Lynn Natusch, J.T. Geissinger, Colleen Hoover, Samantha Towle, K.A. Tucker, Karina Halle, Sarina Bowen, J.R. Ward, Mariana Zapata, Dianne Duvall, and I could go on and on. I read many different genre’s, but still like a romantic element in most, if not all of them.

That is wonderful that the excitement built up before you started this book turned out to be worth it and you got to see her have a wonderful relationship with Naz after all that happened.

I know what you mean about wanting it to be a little longer. This series sounds good. I’ve enjoyed this author before.

She’s good. I’ve been reading her since her first series and loved just about all of them. Night Prowler- her first series is UF/paranormal romance and is actually pretty dark at times. It’s still one of my favorites by anyone.
