Extreme Danger
3.5 Stars

Nick and Becca's romance is very engaging (up until the moment he behaves like an asshat). Becca is another of Shannon McKenna's naive yet strong willed heroines who have no problem coping with the alpha male heroes. Nick has an excessive amount of testosterone but manages to come across as endearing despite his overbearing attitude and terrible deductive skills.

While McKenna is skilled at writing truly despicable villains (Zhogolo is up there with the worst of the worst), the storyline revolving around human trafficking for the purpose of illegal organ harvesting is exceedingly far fetched and the climax and resolution are rushed. Moreover, there is an overabundance of sex scenes that overshadow both the characterization and the plot, which would have been better served with fewer orgasms and more action scenes.

Despite its problems, this is a fun series and I look forward to the next book in which cold and calculating Tamara apparently meets her match. ( )

I gave this book a B+ for the narration and B- for the story at AudioGals.

Narrated by Nelson Hobbs

If you love your romantic suspense with a big serving of erotic romance, then Extreme Danger may just be what you’re looking for. I must admit that I hadn’t previously listened to any other books by Ms. McKenna, so the heat level of this romance caught me off guard, which definitely affected my enjoyment of this title. In the past, my experience with romantic suspense had been limited to authors who focused on the suspense with a touch of romance (think Sandra Brown), but Ms. McKenna’s books definitely seem to follow a different recipe: lots of steamy erotic scenes with a suspense plot layered in. On the plus side, the narration by Nelson Hobbs is above average making this a good choice in audio format if it fits the type of romance you are looking for.

Good story of Nick & Becca. In Nick's story, we learn about his insecurities and oh boy does he have them! All of the men in the McCloud Brothers series have issues and it is interesting to see them work through the issues and begin to trust others. Lots of danger and drama in this story and it keeps you interested throughout.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0758211872, Paperback)

Nobody's home at the millionaire's estate on remote Frakes Island. And nobody seems to be watching. Becca Cantrell dives in for an illicit midnight skinny dip - and gets hauled out by a towering, hard-muscled guy with burning dark eyes. He seems to be in charge. Good. The man is the embodiment of her most intense fantasies. And she's up for risky thrills...Nick Ward can't tell her that he's spying on a vicious Russian crime boss. Becca could be his worst enemy: an assassin sent to kill him, a call girl sent to distract him, or the worst scenario of all - a clueless innocent. Anyway he looks at it, she's trouble: beautiful, bare, dripping-wet trouble. The kind he can't resist.She's not scared. After one taste of his hot mouth, Becca soon discovers just how fearless she can be. She'll need it, too - because things are about to explode on Frakes Island, launching Becca and Nick into danger they could never have imagined - and a passion that could destroy them both...

Skinny-dipping in a stranger's pool - it's as close to reckless as good girl Becca Cattrell has ever been. But the house Becca picked for her midnight swim just changed owners. And her harmless escapade has landed her at the mercy of a brutal, terrifying organization who'll make sure she doesn't live to tell a soul. The most gorgeous woman Nick Ward has ever laid eyes on is also the worst luck he's ever had. Becca's presence at this top-secret meeting place won't just destroy the undercover operation he's been working on, it's liable to get them both killed. But to his surprise, Becca isn't running away - from the danger or from him...Becca knows she should be scared. Instead, she's discovering just how fearless she can be when innocent lives are at stake and white-hot desire is running through her veins. And she'll need every ounce of that courage as she and Nick face off against an enemy more powerful and more ruthless than she could ever imagine...… (more)
