Review of Dangerous Secrets (Tall, Dark & Deadly #2) by Lisa Renee Jones

Being a divorce attorney for the rich and famous isn't all it's cracked up to be. Julie Harrison has learned that love doesn't last, and she's sworn never to make the same mistakes as her mother, or her clients. She uses the games men play to keep them at a distance. The only man who managed to break down her walls was Luke Walker, a Navy SEAL who loved her and left her, and changed her forever.

When Luke arrives back in New York, running Walker Security with his brothers and having left his Navy SEAL days behind, he sets his sights on Julie, the woman he's always wanted and couldn't have. Except, she runs from him every time he gets close.

But now, one of Julie's clients, a powerful judge, gets involved with a dangerous cartel, and his soon-to-be-ex wife ends up dead. Julie's next on the list, and she finds herself on the run from those who believe she knows too much, and counting on Luke to keep her alive. In the deepest, darkest moments of the night, passion will bring them together while danger threatens to tear them apart. Can Julie and Luke trust each other and find their happy ending before they find ... the end?

Overall Rating:  4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆
Dangerous Secrets is the perfect title for this sizzling hot mystery romance by the phenomenal Lisa Renee Jones.  This is the second book in the Tall, Dark, and Deadly series where we meet the second Walker broker Luke and his lady love Julie.  Each character is developed to enhance the flow of the story and increase the readers' interest.  The dialogue is titillating and filled with sexual innuendos and at the same time action packed drama.  This is a book that you will not put down until the last page!

 Julie has always had to work harder, be smarter and stick to the letter of the law more than other women in her field.  As a high priced divorce attorney she loves her job helping others get out of bad situations and move on to a new life.  But when you look like Marilyn Monroe, are single and in a high profile position it is not always easy to be seen as the intelligent, savvy women you really are! Julie finds herself involved in a case that may cost her more than just a win or a loss, it may cost her, her life! There is only one man that she can trust to help her, Luke Walker and he is the one man that can destroy her! Just like he did before when he walked out of her life!

She is the only woman that he has ever wanted forever, but he never felt that he could have her. So, he walked away from her.  Now that his SEAL days are over and he is working with his brothers running their company, Walker Security, it's time to claim his woman.  Julie, however is not on board with picking up where they left off.  You know, once burned twice shy and Luke finds himself in an all out battle to regain her trust and win her back.  When Luke realizes that someone wants her dead, and he is the only thing that stands between her and the grim reaper, he is all in when it comes to saving the woman he loves.

Each time I read a book by Ms. Jones, I am more enamored with her world.  This is an excellent addition to anyone's library, I know it is to mine!
