Dangerous to Know is about Mercer, a member of an elite Special Ops team, who's new target is the colonel's daughter. The evidence points to her being a traitor but the desire between them is much too strong to ignore. Zoe, the colonel's daughter, has always kept her secrets close to her vest. Being the only woman in a decorated military family, she has been taught to let letting someone close is to flirt with disaster. However, when a dangerously handsome Mercer comes into her life, it is all Zoe can do to resist his charms and seduction. As danger circles closer, Zoe must decide if she can trust him to protect her...there is no way that he can be bad if he feels so good.
This is the first time I have read any of Dawn Ryder's novels and I have to say that this will definitely not be the last. The characters, Mercer and Zoe, both had such a mutual attraction and chemistry that would leave anyone breathless. Despite Mercer trying to hook up with Zoe literally right away, I still adored Mercer. However, that would quickly change. After she finds out that he thinks that both her family and herself are traitors, he treats her rough, demanding her, overall treating her horribly. Throughout all that Zoe still had feeling for him.
Zoe's character comes off as being together and rather tough, her father raised her and trained her to be smart in her decisions and in life. I would have to say in a way she failed since she fell for Mercer's trap. Still they do make a great couple.
If you like action-filled, suspenseful, passionate, romantic, and fast paced novels then I would definitely recommend you check this novel out.
