Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Series: The Legionnaires #3
Title: A Risk Worth Taking
Author: Brynn Kelly
Published: May 29th, 2018
This is an action packed, fast paced and intriguing romantic suspense. It is the third and concluding book in The Legionnaires series but I have to say that it worked well as a standalone as I hadn’t read the earlier books in the series.
Samira Desta is a skilled computer security expert, developing systems to thwart hackers and others determined to infiltrate networks and an expert hacker and app developer. She has been in hiding for a year because her fiancé, Latif, discovered a presidential candidate was responsible for organising terrorist type attacks, murders and more. Unfortunately her fiancé was killed so she’s been on her own most of the time since then except when being guarded by Legionnaire Jamie Armstrong for a very short time. It was during that time that the attraction between the two developed but circumstances, fears and further danger forced them apart. She’s been living in different parts of Europe and when her Italian refuge is attacked she is on the move again, determined to keep safe. This is the start of a desperate attempt to stay alive and thwart the corrupt politician. As she works with the few people she trusts she’s put into even more danger but Jamie is there to support her. Can the two survive and find the evidence to bring the presidential candidate to justice?
The two characters are well developed with significant back stories which impinge on their actions and interactions. There’s drama throughout the story that will keep readers on the edge of their seat and turning pages – there are no dull moments in this story! It is an intense and thrilling story that I didn’t want to put down and it has a truly climactic ending. I hadn’t read anything by this author before but I’ll certainly be looking out for more by her in future!
I requested and was given a copy of this novel, via NetGalley, with no obligation. This is my honest review of the book after choosing to read it.
He can’t outrun himself…
Legionnaire Jamie Armstrong lives in the shadows. A medic haunted by his mistakes, he knows better than to hope for redemption. But his latest mission brings a threat he doesn’t see coming—an attraction as irresistible as it is dangerous. Hacker Samira Desta is a woman he swore to forget, but as a key witness to a deadly conspiracy, Samira is his to protect.
But the woman he rescues might be the one who saves him
After a year in hiding, Samira’s worst fears come true when her cover is blown and the unlikeliest of allies comes to her aid—the secretive Scot with whom she shared one unforgettable night. Hunted by lethal forces and losing the battle against their desire, Jamie and Samira make a desperate play to take the fight to their enemy—but those at greatest risk of ruin may be themselves…
