REVIEW ~ Double Danger by Dee Davis

Ignoring his instincts once cost Simon a vital op-and the life of his best friend, Ryan. Now as escalating, violent attacks hit A-Tac, another person he loves is in danger. Homeland Security agent Jillian Montgomery's investigation has suddenly brought her back into Simon's life, and unless they can learn to trust each other, their dangerous mission will fail.
After her husband Ryan's death, Jillian dedicates herself to saving others. She can't afford to be tempted by Simon, even though his every touch reignites the desire they once shared. But in the last desperate minutes before disaster strikes, their second chance at love might be the most lethal trap of all . . .

Simon Kincaid and Jillian “J.J.” Montgomery deal with a massive hunt to stop a terrorist plot in this overwhelming romance/suspense. There is just too much going on in this book for me to truly say that I liked it but I didn’t hate it.
Simon Kincaid is an operative for a covert department within the CIA know as A-TAC. Their job is to wipeout terrorist organizations. Jillian Montgomery is the widow of Simon’s now deceased best friend. There are so many names going throughout this book that I can’t tell you from memory the name of the best friend. This makes the point about the book being overwhelming that I mentioned earlier. Simon and Jillian were also very close to become lovers before Jillian ended up marrying the best friend in question years ago. Simon feels responsible for the death of Jillian’s husband so he basically disappears from her life until a terrorist threat brings them together.
This book takes you on a very uncomfortable roller coaster ride where you have to pay attention to every single detail just to barely keep up. Not that I have an issue with details but this is out of control. Simon has several team members that come into play throughout the book. There are also members of the terrorist organization called “The Consortium” that also get mentioned throughout the book. Within all of this, there is the unkindled romance between Simon and Jillian that plays out. In fact, one chapter really focuses on them and the rest of the book focuses on everything.
If you really love suspense, this is definitely the book for you. If you like a more straightforward suspense, this would just frustrate your senses as everything is seemingly thrown at you all at once. Compared to other romance/suspense novels that I have read, this swings mostly in the suspense column. The love scenes are definitely steamy but they only focus on two people and seem to have just been thrown in to satisfy the steamy quota.
