    4 - "I can't say no to you." Stars!Alena and Andre finally get their story told in Tempting Danger I am glad that Katie gave this couple their own happy ending after playing such a pivotal part in Declan and Nika’s book Retribution.No one manages to cram so much story into novella length books as Katie does, they never feel rushed and the couples always seem to have enough time spent on them that the depth and development of everything balances...

    Alena used Andre to get to his father for revenge against the murder of her parents. When Andre found out, he cast her out but has not been able to get over her. When he finds out she is pregnant with his child, he's determined to make her his despite her betrayal. Alena never thought she would fall for the son of a monster. She hates that she used Andre to get to the last man alive that killed her parents, but she can't see past her revenge. Whe...

    If you’re after a bit of a quickie then Tempting Danger hits the spot. And, whilst an accompanying novella to Retribution—the first in the series of the same name—it can be read on its own, although I have plans in place to rectify this situation and very soon.Whilst not the first book I’ve read by Katie Reus, it is the first novella and the lady can write one. Andre and Alena’s story was tight, and considering their history and what wa...

    Three months after the events in Retribution, Alena and Andre parted ways under less then ideal circumstances. Trying to kill your boyfriend's mobster father kind of kills any chance of pursuing a relationship with him, even if what started off as a means to an end turned out to be far more than Alena ever thought.But a surprise pregnancy changes things. Alena knows she can't keep Andre from his child and although she knows he may never forgive h...

    Alena used Andre to get close enough to his father in an attempt to kill him. Revenge was all she had planned. Unfortunately, along the way she had fallen for the son of her enemy but now he has shut her out of his life. Circumstances dictate that she contact him again, but she’s wary and holds off until the night he overhears her talking to someone.Andre hates that he tossed Alena aside after her attempt to end his father. How was he to know i...

    I read the first book in the series (Retribution) primarily to read this one because I can't read out of sequence and to be honest I wish I hadn't bothered with this one. I struggled to connect with both characters - I knew going into this one that I wasn't a fan of the h (can't even remember her name that shows how much of an impact she had on me!), although Andre was the better of the two. The ridiculous miscommunication towards the end didn't ...

    My biggest problem in this book was my own fault apparently. I am used to stand-alone books by Katie Reus and this one is not exactly an independent book. You should read Retribution before you get your hands on this one. During the whole time I was reading it I felt like I was missing something and judging from the blurb of the first book, my guess is all the events of Retribution. It wasn't a good time to not read the first book because this st...

    Although Tempting Danger can be read as a stand alone it is clearly a second book and the characters/plot were introduced in the first book (which I haven't read). I think this definitely affected my enjoyment of this book and would strongly recommend reading the first book prior to this one. Alena is a model who set out to get justice for her parents who were CIA operatives and murdered by four men. In order to get close to the final killer (she...

    Tempting Danger by Katie ReusA follow up of Retribution and fan requested, Alena and Andre get their happy ending in this novella. It’s a romance by itself, but best to read afterRetribution. Packed with a protective to-be Daddy, and romantic pressure of love, this couple works to make their history a stable future for love. They are not perfect or even necessarily good people having exacted their revenge, but their love for each other is stron...

    Tempting Danger is a sort of continuation from Retribution. While Retribution focuses mostly on Nika and Declan, the overarching story continues. Alena is Nika's older sister and they have finally killed all the people responsible for their parent's murder. However, the trouble isn't done for Alena. She used Andre to get close to his father, the last man she needed to kill. Using Andre left her with guilt...and a baby.Alena is kind of a badass. S...

    Katie Reus is my “go to” author when I want a good guy hero who only has eyes for his leading lady love and will fight anyone who gets in his way to keep her. At only 151 pages, Tempting Danger was no exception. Sure, it reads like a short, flirty, smexy Harlenquinish type novella, but all the better to read it my dears. I’m personally quite fond of that publisher. As a lover of romantic angst, I also get a kick out of alpha protective dadd...

    Although this can be read as a stand-alone novella it is clearly a follow on from a previous novel.Alena Brennan is a model, her younger sister is psychic and is engaged to be married to a former CIA agent. Alena's parents were CIA operatives who were murdered and she swore vengeance on their killers. In order to get closer to the final killer she cultivated a relationship with his son Andre Makarov, a Las Vegas casino magnate, but found herself ...

    This is a continuation novella of Alena and Andre's story from Retribution. I enjoyed it, but not as much as Retribution. Alena and Andre do have their POVs in Retribution so I could kind of get a sense of their relationship development but it wasn't much. I think that was the problem with this. There was no sense of why they fell in love with each other, were attracted to each other in the beginning. Tempting Danger doesn't have the action or su...

    We met Alina and Andre in the first book (Retribution) when she and her sister were trying to avenge their parent’s murder. This book was not as fast-paced as the first book nor did it have any paranormal elements but it was still an entertaining read. It was cute to see the things a hormonal pregnant woman has to go trough and how the people around her deal with the situations. The thing I didn’t like much was that I was expecting more of a ...

    Tempting Danger*received an arc in exchange for an honest review**4 ⭐⭐⭐⭐ Alena has ruined any chance of a relationship with Andre. What started off as revenge turned into something real, at least for her, but she knows he could never care for her after everything. There is only one problem, she is pregnant and now will have him always in her life. But it’s not how she wants him.Andre can’t get Alena out of his head. No matter what she...

    I think you need to read the first book in this series to get the real feel of Andre and Alena. Unfortunately, I had not read it before reading this story. But, that did not take away the sweet romance that we see in this second chance romance. Alena and Andrea tip-toeing around each other was fun to watch and you needed to know if they could overcome the past to pursue a future. Definitely worth a Sunday afternoon with a cup of tea.I received a ...

    Tempting Danger is a sister story to the book Retribution. Retribution focuses mostly on Nika and Declan, Tempting Danger focuses on Nika’s older sister Alena. I was super excited because I wanted to know more about Alena and her lover Andre. I was dying to know more about their love story. These two played a huge role in Retribution and I was wondering how things ended up between them, well this book tells us.Alena essentially faked interest i...

    This short story is the HEA for Alena Brennan and Andre Makarov we've all been waiting for. I was so hoping they would get their story. Katie brought it to us with her twisty imagination.Alena has a big problem. She's a supermodel who is pregnant with Andre Makarov's baby no less. She used Andre to get to Andre's dad, Yasha, her parent's killer. She went and fell in love with Andre. Then ran when Yasha came to justice because she couldn't live wi...

    Posted on What I'm ReadingWhen I started Tempting Danger, I was trying to figure out if I had read the first book, which have. I had to read my review on the first book, then I started to remember. I felt so bad for Alena Brennan. Oh man she was left in a heartbreaking situation. By the time we start this story, she's about four months pregnant, and the father doesn't know. Yes, we have a secret baby situation. It's not like she plan to keep the ...

    Whether you are new to Ms Reus’s stories or a long time fan , you will enjoy this one. It’s book 2 of the author’s Retribution series, and definitely a stand alone. I didn’t read book one, but had no problems following the plot. Ms Reus gives us enough information about what happened in the previous book, that you get a good view of the incidents that lead to this one. The story centers around Andre Makarov and Alena Brennan. They became ...

    This is the second book in a series. It worked fine as a standalone, but there were definitely previous relationships between the characters from book one that would have added to my enjoyment of the stories had I read it. I love Katie Reus, so I knew this would be good. I don't typically like novellas since they are over too fast with my reading speed, but I can't resist Katie Reus's Red Stone Security. My experience with that series is what mad...

    This is book 2 in the Retribution series and it is a novella. I highly recommend that you read book 1 so you understand exactly why the characters are in the situation and circumstances that they are in. You can understand it without reading book 1 but it would definitely make more sense after reading that book. This novella is about Alena Brennan and Andre Makarov. We saw both of these characters in the first book and this novella is set up to e...
