Double Danger (A-Tac #6) by Dee Davis

Ignoring his instincts once cost Simon a vital op-and the life of his best friend, Ryan. Now as escalating, violent attacks hit A-Tac, another person he loves is in danger. Homeland Security agent Jillian Montgomery's investigation has suddenly brought her back into Simon's life, and unless they can learn to trust each other, their dangerous mission will fail.

After her husband Ryan's death, Jillian dedicates herself to saving others. She can't afford to be tempted by Simon, even though his every touch reignites the desire they once shared. But in the last desperate minutes before disaster strikes, their second chance at love might be the most lethal trap of all . . .


Type: Romantic Suspense
Heat: 3 out of 5 (it's not abundant but what's there is good)
Rating: 4 out of 5

I'm a huge fan of romantic suspense but a really good one can be hard to find in my opinion. I've got my go-to women who are just queens of the genre and now it looks like I've added another author to that list. Hot damn! I love when that happens! This was my first book by Davis and as soon as I turned that last page I was hopping over to Goodreads to add all of the rest of them to my buy list.

Double Danger leaned more towards the suspense side than the romance side of things but I still loved it. It was fast, action packed, had me intrigued and loving every second of it. And the romance side of things? While not a huge focus of the story was nicely done and had me falling for Simon and JJ.



Because the romance was more a secondary storyline there weren't too many steamy scenes but what was there was GOOD! Like make-you-pant good ;) I really liked both JJ and Simon and that they had a past together. They did end up being one of those couple that I wanted to shake and do the whole "Come. On. You. Two! Talk. Dammit!!" They're both fighting demons from the past that'll break your heart a bit and that involve the other but the two just couldn't seen to get it all out in the open with the other. Took them a while to finally get with the program but thank the stars they finally did.

I really loved how Davis actually wrote the story. It was so easy to get lost in the investigation and hunt for the people behind the terrorist attacks. I really felt like I was sitting around the table with the team when they were mulling over things and talking all the details out. Fantastic writing. She also gave just enough so you know what's going on but still having questions about how it all ties together just like the team does. I loved that and how it kept me a little on edge the whole time.

So, in the end...excellent suspense with a nice side of romance and a damn sexy cover. Perfect for getting your heart racing and your blood pumping. I'll definitely be back for more of Davis and the A-Tac team.


What say you? Have you tried Davis and the A-Tac team? Whatcha think of em?

    1. Nah you're good in any order I think. I started with this one which was book 6 and had no problems at all. You meet the earlier couples but nothing confusing or anything starting late in the series.

  5. I actually got this off NetGalley but couldn't get through the 1st chapter, but that was when I was in a reading slump. I may go back and give this a try after seeing your review, although I"m not sure I like the whole shaking JJ and Simon part lol

    1. LOL they just needed a little shove sometimes ;)

      I've had books like that before Ning. One of them it took me 3 tries and on that 3rd attempt I couldn't put the thing down. Guess I just wasn't in the right mood before.

      If you get through it let me know what ya think :)
