{Romance Minute Review} Bound to Danger (Deadly Ops #2) by Katie Reus

Bound to Danger (Deadly Ops, #2)

At a benefit dinner, community activist Maria Cervantes overhears two men plotting a terrorist attack that could rock Miami to its core. But before she can alert authorities, she’s almost killed in a massive explosion—and wakes up in a hospital with no memory of what happened. As the sole survivor of the attack, she is now a person of interest to the NSA—and especially to Agent Cade O’Reilly. Because Maria is the one woman Cade has never been able to forget.

Years ago, they were closer than either was willing to admit—until Cade disappeared when Maria needed him most. Now he’s sticking by her, whether she likes it or not. Because the memories locked inside her mind could hold vital clues to the next attack. Because terrorists want her dead—and because he never wants to let her go again. (Blurb via Goodreads)

{Rating} 3/5 - I liked it!

"Cade O'Reilly ran full force through the triple-canopy jungle, the unbearable summer heat and giant mosquitoes barely a blip on his radar as he dodged lowhanging vines and branches." (page 1, line 1)
A fast-paced romantic suspense novel that had a little bit more suspense than romance for my liking. I did the like storyline and the pacing, the way we find out what's going on along with Cade and Maria - excellent use of amnesia by the way - as well as seeing things from the 'bad guy's' POV.

Cade and Maria have history, which we see from the e-mails they exchanged years before, but Cade broke off all contact without explanation - and when he gets around to explaining it felt like a bit of a letdown. Despite that I liked Cade and Maria together, liked that they trusted, respected and listened to each other.

Through Bound to Danger is the second book in the Deadly Ops series, it can be read as a standalone.
