Sarah Denning is a military journalist with the Army in the Middle East when her convoy is attacked and she’s taken hostage. When former Army Ranger Gavin Black is asked by his old unit commander–Sarah’s imposing father–to plan an extremely risky rescue, he reluctantly agrees and successfully executes it.
Back in the US, Sarah is livid when she’s discharged on a false psychiatric evaluation and vows to return to the Army. Until she learns of her brother’s suicide. Unable to believe her brother would do such a thing, she puts her plans on hold and enlists Gavin to help her discover the truth. What they uncover may be the biggest story of Sarah’s career–if she can survive long enough to write it.
Strap in for another breakneck nail-biter from bestselling romantic suspense author Lynette Eason that will have you up turning pages long into the night.
If book 1, Collateral Damage, in the Danger Never Sleeps series by Lynette Eason is intense (and it is!), then book 2, Acceptable Risk, is intensity on steroids. From the very first page, Acceptable Risk is one wild ride and never lets up. Seriously, there are moments in this story that are so edge-of-your-seat I could barely breathe and I began to tear up. I loved every minute! Sarah Denning is an amazing heroine. She is beyond brave and courageous, and she is super smart. I would love to have 1/10th of her non-stop energy. Gavin Black is the best kind of hero. He’s strong, intelligent, capable, and compassionate. He really does have a big heart. I love how he’s able to see ten steps ahead, how he’s able to read Sarah like a book, and how he’s able to recognize his mistakes and work towards making himself a better man. I enjoyed following the mystery and trying to see if I could put the pieces together ahead of the characters. I was able to somewhat, but overall this story kept me guessing till the end. And, Acceptable Risk isn’t just a fluff Romantic Suspense story. I very much appreciate the many timely themes and messages. I especially loved the discussion on forgiveness, and how we don’t have to fall victim to our past sins. We can move forward as a new, better-improved version of our former selves. All in all, Acceptable Risk is an excellent Contemporary Romantic Suspense story that I highly, highly recommend!
