Three years after Emma Sloane’s wealthy fiance’s mysterious death, she’s finally ready to move on and pursue her own dreams. But her plans are derailed when she’s attacked outside her New York City apartment in what she thinks is a random violent incident. Then other women who look just like her start turning up dead…
Homicide Detective Jake Quinn is haunted by the one case he couldn’t solve. When he’s put in charge of a new high-profile murder case, he interviews a victim who escaped a similar attack—and to his shock it’s Emma, the former fiancée of his unsolved murder victim.
Neither expects the sparks of attraction between them. But the killer escalates, clearly targeting Emma, and Jake’s job is on the line. Can he solve this case before it’s too late for both of them?
NICUnurse’s Review of Dangerous Desires by Dawn Altieri
Dawn Altieri is a new-to-me author, but I’m a huge romantic suspense lover, and I’m always on the hunt for fresh meat…I mean new authors that I really like their books! Sometimes, these new-to-me authors are a hit. Aaaaaaand sometimes, unfortunately, they are a miss. I’m happy to report that, for me, Dangerous Desires definitely falls under the “hit” category!
Homicide detective Jake Quinn is obsessed with the one case he’s never been able to close. When Emma Sloane is attacked in broad daylight, and women that look eerily like her keep showing up dead all over the city, their paths cross once again. The question is, will he solve the case in time or will he lose her forever?
NICUnurse’s Rating: While a just a little bit predictable as far as the plot goes, and a bit frustrating with the two main characters seemingly unable to make up their minds and being a bit wishy-washy, I still felt like Dangerous Desires had enough positives to put it in the “hit” category mentioned above. The plot was easy to follow, the backstory wasn’t a huge information dump, and there were enough twists and turns to keep me guessing for the majority of the book. While it may not top my list of most memorable reads, it was still a pleasant read that had me turning the pages to figure out who the murderer was until about the last ¼ of the book. And even then, I was waffling between two characters as to which one was the real culprit As far as I’m concerned, a romantic suspense book is a good one if I don’t figure out who the bad guy is in the first ¼ of the book, and I happily recommend those. And, as far as I’m able to find out, this is only the author’s second book, and I liked it enough to check out her first book, Burn. So putting those two things together, combined with the fact that I’m honestly looking forward to more from this author,
I give Dangerous Desires by Dawn Altieri a solid 4 out of 5 propellers!

With an overactive imagination and a slightly twisted mind, she enjoys reading dark and dangerous tales almost as much as writing them.
