Naughty Stranger (Dangerous Love #1) by Stacey Kennedy

From USA Today bestselling author Stacey Kennedy comes a thrilling, sexy romance about a woman in danger and a small-town police detective who will do anything to keep her safe.

After a sudden tragedy blew her world apart, Peyton Kerr fled her big city career and started over in Stoney Creek, Maine. So far, she’s loving small-town life–no one knows about her past, and her easy flirtation with Boone Knight gives her a reason to smile. But then someone is murdered in Peyton’s store, and her quiet, anonymous existence is instantly destroyed. To make matters worse, Boone–a police detective–is assigned to the case, and Peyton knows she can’t keep him at arm’s length any longer. She’s resisted the simmering heat between them–but now this gorgeous man is promising to keep her safe–and satisfied…

Boone Knight doesn’t want the complications of a relationship. But when he volunteers to protect his town’s newest–and sexiest–resident, he finally admits he’d like to explore their sizzling attraction. And after one incredible night, everything changes for Boone. Peyton is sweeter–and braver–than anyone he’s ever met, and with her in his arms, everything makes sense. He just needs to convince her to trust him enough to reveal her secrets, or risk losing her to a merciless killer who seems to grow bolder with each passing day. 

4 out of 5 stars

This was an awesomely entertaining romantic suspense story! I had so much fun reading it and was on the edge of my seat while everything played out. It's full of drama, emotion, and a whole lot of sexy.

I loved Peyton and Boone meeting, they had great chemistry. I like learning about Peyton and everything she’d gone through. I liked her perseverance as she moved forward with her life. She had a great strength about her that I really enjoyed. I thought Boone was the sweetest man, thoughtful and caring, and oh so sexy! I liked their development, understood their conflict, and loved learning their histories. There were so many great moments as they open up. I could feel their attraction and loved their heat.

I really liked meeting all the people in the town, Boone’s friends and I loved the friendships Peyton formed, and the new family she’s making for herself. There was a nice introduction to the next couple in the series that I'm curious about. I’m excited to see where it all will go.

At 20%, the story really hit its stride for me and I was all in. The suspense element is great, though I feel it is definitely lighter romantic suspense. There's just enough info to keep you invested and to keep things moving along but it's not overly in depth. I settled in and was enjoying watching Peyton and Boone heal from their past and fall in love, all the while I was guessing what was what and just having fun reading it.

This was entertaining for sure! It’s got drama and action, a nice amount of sexy and a whole lot of healing and love. I totally enjoyed it!
