Dawn Rider’s new series from St. Martin’s Press is a military romance that falls in line with the traditional bad-boy special ops military boy saves the resistant but spunky heroine. The series is about an elite special ops unit that is tasked with flushing out traitors. The characters were larger than life and the romance was very hot, DANGEROUS TO KNOW is a must read if you like your heroes barely redeemable and your heroines that can keep up with the bad-boy.

The story is really about a family, Zoe is the daughter of a decorated military hero and her brother is also overseas defending our country. When top secret information is given to the enemy and the path leads back to Zoe and her father’s computer, Zoe is suspected as a traitor, along with her father and brother. The special ops team that features Mercer, a bad-boy, biker/military hottie, swoops in to find out if Zoe is a part of the espionage – by way of seduction.

The book features a complex plot, a stereotypical antagonist and some very off-the-charts, toe-the-line type of romance. It made for a gritty read. I liked how Ryder took chances in this book. It is your typical romance novel, but she made a point of not following the rules in some instances. The characters were well done and I found that their actions weren’t predictable, which I liked in the book. The introduction of the parrot was a bit hoaky, but I could live with it.

Overall a good read and one I recommend for romance fans that enjoy military bad-boys.
