Publisher's Summary

Warning: This is one dark, dangerous, dirty-talking, adrenaline-fueled thrill ride. Are you ready?

I've got a big c*ck, a bigger bank account, and zero interest in happily ever after. I just want to feel alive, to look into a woman's eyes and see something that's going to keep my mind off all the shit I refuse to think about for an hour or two.

And then I meet her, a good girl with a body made for sin and ugly problems only a bad man can fix.

A bad man like me....

Gabe Alexander is the devil. Or an angel.

He's a criminal hiding behind a millionaire dollar pedigree, but he also saved my life and my family. He's the worst kind of bad news, but every time he touches me, and whispers filthy, beautiful things in my ear, all I want is more.

More of his kiss, his touch, and the dangerous, seductive things he makes me feel.

I don't want to go bad, but the man makes it feel so damned good....

Warning part the second: A Love So Dangerous is the first in a three-part series. It is a full-length novel that ends in a cliffhanger. It was formerly published as One Wild Night and This Wicked Rush by Jessie Evans.

Desperate Times Calls For Desperate Measures!

I'm quickly becoming a fan of Lili Valiente! I fell in the love the Magnificent Bastard series, and couldn't wait to listen to her newest series To The Bone. While the first book in the series had a slow start, it quickly picked up, and delivered a slightly dark suspenseful plot with lots of steamy chemistry. The story ends on a heart-stopping cliffhanger.... so I really hope we don't have to wait long for book two! ;-)

Some spoilers:
Young Caitlin Cooney has sacrificed going to college to raise her younger brothers and niece. Her mother has run off, her sister has left the county, and her father is unfit to raise the children. She's up to her eyeballs in debt, and is struggling to make ends meet. Just when things couldn't get any worse, she's hit with property taxes. If the taxes aren't paid and paid soon, they could lose their home. Needing a break from daily grind, Caitlin and her good friend Sherry go to a club to dance the night away, and run into Gabe, a rich guy who she knew from high school.

Gabe's looking for a distraction, a distraction that will take his mind off his problems, and he prefers the "one night stand" kind of distractions. After dancing with Caitlin, he's thinking she would be the prefect distraction, but she isn't biting. Before he leaves the club, he talks with Sherry who secretly tells him all about Caitlin's money woes. Caitlin needs money, and he knows the perfect scumbag who has money, money the scumbag would use to get out of trouble. Our modern day Robinhood, Gabe, devises the perfect plan to help Caitlin "acquire" the money. She's reluctant at first, but the more success they have implementing his plans, the more she is on board.

Gabe and Caitlin aren't just reallocating funds, they have real chemistry. Steamy! hot! Off the charts chemistry! But Gabe has a secrete, and can only give Caitlin the summer, but it's a summer they both agree to completely enjoy with nights filled hot, passionate, dirty, mind blowing sex! The more time they spend together, the more attached they become.

Lance Greenfield and Erin Mallon brought their A GAME and delivered a STELLAR performance! They both did an excellent job with the characters, dialogue, emotions, and really made this an awesome audio experience. Kudos!!

This was an excellent start to a new series, but has the dreaded cliffhanger! Can't wait for book two!

GOOD LISTEN

I liked this book pretty much. The story keeps you INTERESTED. The narration is GOOD! I'm pretty disappointed that the book was so short and ended on a major cliffhanger! these audible books are not cheap and paying $10 or a credit for 6 hours is a little unreasonable. I purchased because of the good reviews without paying enough attention to the length of the book. now that I'm sucked in, I guess I'll be paying $10 for a 4 hour Book 2. Just keep this in mind before purchasing BOOK 1.😞 you'll be paying over $35 or 3 credits for about 15 hours of listening time.

A Love So Dangerous

I absolutely love this series! These narrators gave this story so much life. I thought reading it was good but after listening to Lance Greenfield and Erin Mallon, I feel that reading it on my own didn't do this book any justice. They brought so much to the characters and this story! Lili Valente is one of my favorite authors and this book will show you why. I can't wait to listen to A Love So Deadly!

Like A Thief In The Night

Wow! What a thrilling romance story that keeps you on the edge of your seat. Gabe and Caitlin together are so contradictory yet absolutely combustible. Circumstances brought them together but their chemistry is what makes them explode.

It was annoying that this story was broken into a 3 book series when it could just as easily been told in 1 book, 2 at the most.

The narrators were so compelling that I just couldn't stop listening. Erin Mallon is one of my favorite narrators and Lance Greefield blended will with her.

The series is worth the credit maybe 2 credits, but 3 credits is a bit much. But it was worth the reduced price I paid. Can't wait to finish the series.

A Love So Good!

Would you consider the audio edition of A Love So Dangerous to be better than the print version?

That's a tough question because I absolutely loved the book, but the audio version definitely brought the story to life.

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Love So Dangerous?

When Gabe and Caitlyn have sex for the first time.

Have you listened to any of Lance Greenfield and Erin Mallon ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I haven't heard them before but I thought that they did a fantastic job reading these characters.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The ending when Gabe is trying to end things with Caitlyn. I was difficult to read but heartbreaking to listen to.

Any additional comments?

I love this series and I can't wait to listen to the rest of the books.

AMAZING!!

This book was so much more than the blurb states. Caitlin has been left to care for her 3 brothers and niece. Gabe is an upstanding guy on the outside but underneath lurks a criminal. When Caitlin and Gabe cross paths, he brings her into his world as his partner in crime.

I really loved Caitlin and Gabe. Gabe was a good guy deep down and it showed in his relationship with Caitlin. They were only supposed to only spend the summer together and that had me super suspicious about Gabe. He just seemed so intent to end it but I was shocked by his secret. The ending....OMG. I would have never thought that would happen. I cant wait for the next book.

The narration of this book was AMAZING! I always loved Erin Mallon but I really liked Lance Greenfield too.

Being Bad Never Looked So Good

Caitlin Cooney is up to her neck in responsibility. Left to care for her siblings and niece due to the irresponsibility of her parents and sister, she has her hands full. Forced to give up her chance at a better life, she is doing the best she can to keep her family together. Gabe Alexander has it all. Rich, good-looking, and smart, he can have anything that he wants. And what he wants is Caitlin...

Caitlin has had to work hard for everything in her life. When her parents and sister left, she was forced to decide between an education that would provide her with an opportunity to move beyond her circumstances and keeping her family together. Weighed down by the responsibility that she feels to provide for her 'kids,' she just wants the chance to get away from everything for one night and spend time being an average twenty-year-old girl. While out with her friend, she runs into Gabe, a former classmate. Caitlin and Gabe have little in common, but are completely drawn to each other. Tempted by his offer of a way to an easier life, Caitlin finds herself doing things that she would never have thought she would do. Gabe wants more time to get to know Caitlin, to have her in his life. Making her his accomplice in his quest to right wrongs in their South Carolina town, and drawing her into the explosive chemistry between them, he has awakened Caitlin and left her dissatisfied with the life that she has been living up to this point.

Caitlin just wants to get back to her normal life, working and taking care of her family. She is determined that there not be a repeat of what happened between them, but finds herself more and more deeply drawn to Gabe. And when Gabe sweetens the deal, making it impossible for her to say no to him, she agrees to be with him just for the summer.

Gabe knows just how to get Caitlin to agree to spend time with him, but is hiding a big secret from her. He didn't count on coming to care for her as deeply as he does, and, as the summer progresses, he faces some hard choices where she is concerned.

Lili Valente is great at character development. Caitlin is sassy and independent, having had to handle some very tough things in her young life, and Gabe is just delicious. He is smart and hot, and goes from simply wanting Caitlin to wanting to give her everything. The chemistry between Caitlin and Gabe is super-hot; they start out being very attracted to each other, but the attraction quickly deepens to much more as the story progresses. A LOVE SO DANGEROUS made me think of a sort of take on 'Robin Hood,' with a whole lot of hot and sexy scenes. The story does end on a cliff-hanger, but not in an abrupt way. Lili has done a good job of bringing everything together and setting us up for the continuation of Caitlin's and Gabe's journey in A LOVE SO DEADLY, the next book in the series, and I can't wait to see where they go.

As far as narration goes, Lance Greenfield and Erin Mallon did an absolutely excellent job of bringing Gabe and Caitlin to life, and made the story even more real for me. Thumbs up for a job well done.
