Dangerous Beauty by Melissa Koslin is an intense thriller that grabs you from the first page and leaves you completely riveted until the very last word. While there is romance, it is not as prominent as I would’ve liked, but that makes sense considering the subject matter of this story.
I really liked both main characters. Liliana was so strong and had a heart for helping people. Even after what she had been through, she still wanted to help others instead of hiding away, which given Meric’s wealth and connections, she certainly could have. I was really intrigued by Meric! The second he appeared on the page, I wanted to know everything about him! I really wish we could have spent more time in his head, because I wanted to know exactly what he was thinking every second of the story. I also felt like the suspense and action were well done - not too much and not too little.
I’m so glad I took a chance on this new-to-me author. This story was different and intriguing!
*I received a complimentary of this book. All opinions are my own. The faith thread is very light. 4 stars!
Meric Toledan was just stopping at a service station for a bottle of water. Assessing the situation, he steps in to rescue Liliana from traffickers. If he can keep his secrets at bay, his wealth and position afford him many resources to help her. But the mysterious buyer who funded her capture will not sit idly by while his prize is stolen from him.
Melissa Koslin throws you right into the middle of the action in this high-stakes thriller that poses the question: What is the price of freedom?
