Hey everyone, I am back with another five star read! The book I will be telling you about today is the third book in the Capital Confessions trilogy! The first book Flirting with Scandal (reviewed on April 18, 2015). The second book Playing with Trouble (reviewed on June 12, 2015. These can be read as a standalone as they are each about a different character, but I highly recommend reading the entire trilogy.
Falling for Danger by Chanel Cleeton
Kate Reynolds lost her fiancee, Matt Ryan, in a Special Forces mission in Afghanistan. However, his body was never recovered and she is determined to find out what happened to him.
She has graduated from college and has landed herself a job as junior political analyst at the CIA.
Kate can't seem to shake the feeling that she is being watched.
One evening while she slept, she hears two men inside her apartment arguing. She grabs a baseball bat to defend herself only to discover the the men are fighting each other. One of the men runs off after getting what he was after. The other guy to her surprise was Matt.
Matt Ryan had been keeping an eye on Kate for quite sometime but when he discovered the love of his life may be in danger, he decided to come out of the shadows despite the risks.
Kate had never gotten over her grief of losing Matt. She just kept putting one foot in front of the other each and every day.
Now, here he was standing in front of her after all this time.
War changes people and more often than not, soldiers return suffering from PTSD. He is not the same guy she fell in love with but deep down she was the one who kept him going.
How does one keep going when the world thinks that you are dead?
Matt and Kate grew up in a town where power and money call the shots. The power players have secrets of destruction that they will do anything to keep buried.
In politics there are checks and balances for a reason. Sometimes we must remind the sharks to not bite the hands that feed them.
I LOVED THIS BOOK!! This one is my favorite of the trilogy. I loved this action packed read! It had me hooked from the beginning! I did not want to put it down! I literally only put it down when my tablet needed charging and to sleep! This is a very fast paced read that gets your blood pumping! I loved the story and the characters. I love how it brought to light how war affects people. I love how Kate never gave up on him. True love never dies and loyalty does count for something.
