Title: Dangerous Concoctions
Author: Victoria Bright
Mixing the past and present could have dangerous consequences…
I’ve always been a man of second chances, forgiving Arianna proved that. Sometimes, a second opportunity was all someone needed to do things right. I knew that better than anyone. Now that I had my girl back and business was prospering, things were finally falling into place. Little did I know, my newfound happiness wouldn’t last very long.
When a man responsible for my near demise resurfaces, my life is shaken up once again. What seemed like an innocent, harmless favor quickly turned out to be a malicious scheme that put my business, relationship, and freedom at risk.
With time running out, I race around the city piecing together the complicated puzzle I was a part of, only to come face to face with the men responsible. In this erotic suspense, will my past repeat itself in order to settle a score or am I doomed to take the fall for something I didn’t do?
Zane and Arianna's story continues in this 2nd book in the Curvy Assignments series. This book can be read as a standalone, however, to make the most sense for reader enjoyment, I recommend reading it in order.
This story is about Arianna and Zane getting to know one another, for real this time. Zane still loves her, and despite his family warning him away from the love of his life, he cannot stay away from her. They are both hurting and turn to one another to try again.
Arianna is living what seems like a simple life of writing her books and loving Zane. If she can talk him into trusting her enough to get a second chance, that is. He is the only man she has even loved. Because of her earlier deception, she has lost everything - including him. Will he give it another try?
Zane has a lot going on right now. Forgiving Arianna is just the tip of the iceberg crashing into his life. He has an old frienemy returning and stirring up trouble and pain from the past. He has his father in the hospital with heart trouble, so his family is visiting as well. He has his business booming and taking on larger contracts for work.
Together, things seem to be flowing well. As long as they can see each other often, and feel close - things go as planned. What they do not know is that tragedy can strike at any time and love is not the only thing needed to fix it.
This is such an amazing book! It makes a great installment to the series. These characters are charming, warm, compelling, and interesting enough to make you never want to put the book down! I give this story a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
