Publisher's Summary

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.
Contains mature themes.

REVIEW:
As I read over my original review of Bound to Danger (below) I find that I loved this book just as much the second time around as I did the first time. But this go around I listened on audio. Sophie Eastlake does a good job of bringing Ms. Reus’ characters to life. My only complaint is that at time the male voice sound a little stuffy. But other than that, I enjoyed the non-stop action of this story.


Original review: Eight years is a long time to stay away from the one you love. But that is what Cade O’Reilly did and he had his reasons. But when Maira’s name come acrossed the board as needing protection he know that he was the only one that could do it. He will do anything for Maira, except let her go this time. This time he plans to stay, but will Maira want him to after she learns of his secrets?

Bound to Danger is the second book in Katie Reus’ news Deadly Ops series. Bound to Danger is every bit as good as Targeted (bk 1). From page one there is not stop action. And even in the middle of a life and death situation Katie is able to let our hero & heroine have a great love story.

Disclaimer:
I received a complimentary copy of the audiobook from Katie Reus and Audible.com in exchange for an honest review. This review is my own opinion and not a paid review.

Great Second Story in Series.

Bound to Danger is the second book in the Deadly Ops Series by Katie Reus. This book followed the premise of the first one in that a solider, who has nothing to lose, is offered the opportunity to work for a top secret part of the NSA – the catch – they need to give up their old life. In a perfect world, that would work, however it seems that their old lives have a way of colliding with their new employment. Six years ago, Cade O’Reilly was a marine with pretty much nothing to lose – he was at the top of his game, he was preforming top secret missions for the CIA and at his peak. His record singles him out as someone who would be an asset to the Black Ops team operated by the NSA. Since Cade has no family, he can keep his name and his past (unlike the others in the Unit), if he decides to work for the NSA. Maria Cervantes is a part of Cade’s past. Maria overhears a terrorist plot but before she can inform anyone, she witnesses an explosion, which causes her to have amnesia. Enter Cade. Cade knew Maria when he and her brother were in the same marine unit. Cade and Maria’s brother were best friends. After Maria’s brother dies Cade cuts her out of his life as feels responsible for her brother’s death. After the explosion, Cade shows up, in Maria’s hospital’s room to ask her questions about the incident, as many influential people were killed. Maria, of course, is angry and hurt. She has not heard from Cade in eight years (since her brother died) and he shows up asking her questions on the day her mother is killed in the explosion. Cade and Maria have a lot of history to get through. The character interaction is great. The suspense keeps you on the edge. The plot is well developed and believable. Will Maria remember? Will Cade and Maria find their way to each other? Can Cade protect Maria from the terrorists? Are they the only ones with an agenda or are there others? There was some heat to the book but it was not over the top. I would recommend this book and give a sold 4 and ½ stars. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a lot of action and suspense with romance thrown in. The audio version of this book was narrated by Sophie Eastlake. Once again, Ms. Eastlake does not disappoint in her vocalization of the characters in the book. She seems to breathe life into this emotions and interactions and makes you feel like you are privy to the conversation going on. There were no real noticeable errors or pauses in the recording. I listened to this audio book over several gym visits and it seemed to make the time go by much quicker.
