5.0 out of 5 starsTempting Danger
Reviewed in the United States on December 14, 2017
This was an amazing addition to the Retribution series and reading how Alena and Andre overcame what seemed like insurmountable obstacles to find true happiness together was fantastic. The fact that she was pregnant forced her to talk to him again and not knowing how much he wanted her to forgive him for walking out on her was very touching. He could not get over the love he had for her and understood her hatred for his cruel dead father that he felt as well. She was worried he would never trust her again which was not the case at all. Once he saw her pregnant with their child he was determined to win her back. It was very suspenseful when they discovered her previous deadly stalker had escaped and his whereabouts were unknown. How they handled that dangerous situation made for some exciting moments for her sister Nika, as well. Andre, Alena, and Grace got their happily ever after as did Nika and her husband Declan in the end. I highly recommend this novella because it explains their loving relationship and what it took to get there. I hope there are more books in this series.
Alena Brennan , a model (we met her in RETRIBUTION) used Andre Makarov to get to his father. But she fell hard for him while she was playing him. When the truth came out, he kicked her out of his life which was understandable.
Andre Makarov, a casino mogul who fell hard and fast for Alena Brennan, a woman who was just using him to get to his father. He understood why she needed revenge but he couldn't stay with her when all was said and done.
Now that his father was dead she could move on with her life but things became a little more complicated when he found out Alena was pregnant with his baby.
Andre wanted to protect Alena, no matter what he said he couldn't stop thinking about her and vice versa. He used every tricks none to man to get her to marry him.
Loved the way they both handled the news about becoming parents. They put all their cards on the table and worked through their issues.
When a dangerous man from Alena's past escaped from prison, Andre was right there ready to protect the woman he loved. In the end the mad man got his when he ambushed Nika and Alena.
Declan and Nika finally walked down the aisle while Andre and Alena were happy they gave themselves a second chance at happiness.
TEMPTING DANGER is the second book in Katie Reus' RETRIBUTION series. It was action-packed, sexy and riveting. 5 Fan-freakin-stastic stars!

Katie Reus - Tempting Danger - (Retribution Series - Book 2)
WOW. The second novel in the Retribution series is as impactful and riveting as Book 1, Retribution. Alena Brennan and Andre Makarov were a big part of the plot in book 1 and after Alena tried to kill Andre’s gangster father and he found out he was used to get closer to his father, he kicked Alena and her sister, Nika, out of his life.
Alena went back home to Biloxi. Nika, however, didn’t go with her, she stayed in Miami with the love of her life, Declan Gallagher. Four months later Alena is back in Miami to help Nika plan her wedding, and she is four months pregnant. Yes, it is Andre’s baby and no, he doesn’t know.
Andre can’t seem to get Alena out of his mind. He should hate her but instead he has someone keep tabs on her. It’s to keep her safe. That is what he is telling himself. When he found out that Alena would be in Miami soon, he got on his plane and headed for Miami. When Andre walked into a room and heard Alena tell someone she was pregnant, he knew it was his and he went into alpha male, protection and neanderthal mode.
Find out if there is a chance for Andre and Alena to get past their history and tell each other how they fell about each other? When Alena is being pursued by someone from her past, will she be saved or will her time with Andre be cut short?
Revenge is a powerful force. Alena Brennan knows first hand how it takes over your life. It cost her the love of Andre Makarov because of it. What is she going to do now that she's pregnant with his baby? Alena is a powerful heroine. She's determined to kill Andre's father. He was responsible for the murder of her parents. I wanted these two to find a way to become a family. I felt the love and passion between them. I didn't want the evil of Andre's father to keep them apart. Tempting Danger is an emotional story. I loved the setting and enjoyed catching up with Declan and Nika. Katie Reus is a favorite author. Her stories are both romantic and suspenseful.
A follow up of Retribution and fan requested, Alena and Andre get their happy ending in this novella. It’s a romance by itself, but best to read afterRetribution.
Packed with a protective to-be Daddy, and romantic pressure of love, this couple works to make their history a stable future for love. They are not perfect or even necessarily good people having exacted their revenge, but their love for each other is strong.
One of my favorite authors for an exciting, satisfying romantic suspense.
I received a copy of this book from NetGalley. I also purchased a hard copy.
Andre and Alena were together for the wrong reasons at first as she was using him to get close to his father to kill him . After Andres father died but not by Alena and she left he felt so betrayed. Needless to say Alena realized she was in love with Andre and four months later found out she was pregnant. Andre had been keeping tabs on Alena but also keeping his distance . Once he found out why Alena used him and why he was not so mad. They met back up by accident but not really and andre found out she was pregnant and shocked . Now can they come together for the good of the baby and learn to trust each other. Can love be in the picture down the road since they both love each other. But trust is a hard thing to earn back.
5.0 out of 5 starsWonderful second chance romance:)

Alena is given a second chance at love with Andre in this book after seeking revenge against his father and using him in the process. Luckily for her he hasn’t forgiven himself for letting her walk out of his life all those months ago. But when he discovers that she is pregnant with his child, all bets are off and he will possess her heart, soul and body! When her life and the baby are threatened, he won’t step back but do everything he can to protect what’s his:)
Alena and Andres story will they get a happy ending? Can he trust her? Can she let her guard down and let him in ? Only time will tell as they are both stubborn and wilful and there are some serious criss-crossed wires throughout this story.
