REVIEW ===> Dangerous Embrace by Dana Mason


Sarah Jennings wants nothing more than a quiet life--alone.
Raised by an eccentric mother, their life on the road only taught her how to run away from hard times. But when she finds herself in an abusive relationship, this lesson serves her well. 

Now, back in her hometown, she's found a place she loves. She's a first grade teacher, and with few friends and less family around, she has what she wants, a quiet life under the radar where she can be free of her past and live quietly. Finally comfortable in her own skin, she's settled, and less fearful than she's ever been in her life.

But it only takes one night and one act of violence for everything to change. Injured and afraid, Sarah wants to run again, but Mark Summors refuses to let her go.

Just when Sarah thinks she can have Mark and the life he promises, her past comes back to haunt her.

Mark Summors was born and raised in Santa Rosa. He married his high school sweetheart and never questioned his life, until he found his wife with another man.

Now divorced, he wants something more. He's passionate about his job, he wants to protect people, and he devotes his life to it.

This time he's protecting more than just another client, he's protecting his future; at least, Sarah Jennings will be his future, once he convinces her she loves him.

My Review:

I was given an ARC by the author, Dana Mason for my honest review.

Dana Mason does a fantastic job with this book. I was completely captivated by the story line and fell in love with the characters. I was not able to put the book down; I finished reading it in a few hours.  This book will keep you at the edge of your seat throughout the entire book. It is suspenseful, thrilling, romantic.  Just when you think everything is clear, the situation completely changes! I found it to be a fast paced book and very engaging. It was fun in its own way and full of so much drama, I couldn't guess what was going to happen next.

Sarah Jennings lives a very quiet life in a small town. She normally runs away when a problems occurs, however, she has finally found a job she loves and created a house she calls home. To end her suffering from emotional struggles from the past, she chooses to keep to herself; she doesn't want to get hurt again. Very slowly, she is starting to live life without fear, like she once had to do.

A very traumatic incident has her running into the hands of Mark Summors. Instantly upon meeting, he has the need to want to protect Sarah and keep her safe. He is not alone, everyone who knows Sarah’s past feels the need to protect Sarah and keep her safe. Despite being a complete stranger, Mark feels a connection and wants to care for her. He has his own trust issues since he caught his ex-wife cheating on him and he does not want to jeopardize his heart once again. His main priorities in life are his son and his business; a relationship is something he does not want to get in to. 

Being nearly raped and being physically beat brings back painful memories for Sarah. Her difficult relationship with her parents and the various abuses created by her ex, has her on the verge of shutting down. Nightmares return and the wall she has built is now stronger than ever. Unable to care for herself during recovery, she must turn to the one person who she wants to stay far away from. 

Can Mark help her to get healthy, get through her past, and help her live her life again without fear? Will Sarah be able to get past the emotional struggles to live life again? Will she be able to let Mark in to help her? How far will Mark push till he gives up? What will it take for Sarah to get past her personal hurdles?

I really enjoyed reading Dangerous Embrace. I can’t wait for more books in this series, as well as other books by Dana Mason! Job well done!~~Jennelyn
