Intimate Fear (Empire Blue Book 2) by DC Stone

About this Book:

This book in the second in The Empire Blue series by DC.  You first meet Dwayne Gonzalez in the first book Intimate Danger so I would recommend reading that book first.  (Adult 18+)

“On the heels of a crime spree in the small town of Nyack, a new threat has arrived…   Dwayne Gonzalez has always had a thing for Brooke Mason, but she married another man, had a child, and started her life without him. Now, years and a divorce later, he’s still on the sidelines. A drug investigation is about to change all that.    Dwayne suspects Brooke’s daughter, Hailey, knows more than she’s saying about the drugs being pushed in the halls of Nyack High. When the unthinkable happens and Hailey ends up missing, Dwayne will risk everything to get her back. Dwayne and Brooke set out to find her, and as the threat grows, so does a passion that’s been denied for far too long. Will they find Hailey? And can he convince Brooke that their time is now?”

My Four star Review:

Detective Dwayne Gonzalez became my obsession in the first Empire Blue Book, Intimate Danger, and I could not wait for his book to come out.  This book is based on Dwayne’s drug case.  We meet Hailey, Brooke’s daughter and someone Dwayne considers a daughter, stuck in the middle of it.  I will not lie to you, the beginning of this book was very difficult for me to read.  Things happened to 17 year old Hailey that no mother ever wants to happen to their daughter.  That being said, about 17% into the book I had to put it down and walk away for a day.  But I did pick it back up because I knew there was no way DC wasn’t going to give me a happily ever after.  The hunt was on for Hailey, Dwayne and Brooke’s relationship takes a turn and we were introduced to several Gonzalez brothers who come to assist in the hunt for Hailey.  At this point I was extremely glad I picked the book back up.

There were moments in this book I wanted to smack Dwayne in the head and shake the hell out of Brooke.  How could she not see how much Dwayne loved her over the past 17 years even with him going through woman like crazy?  Once the brothers showed up I literally could not put this book down.  Yep, the book I put down after only 17% became the book I could not get enough of!!!

DC’s characters are intriguing, a bit mysterious and sexy as hell.  Luke Gonzalez grabbed my heart from the minute he showed up and has turned into my new obsession.  Chris Gonzalez has something mysterious revolving around him and I’m looking forward to reading his book next.

So … When you pick up this book and you really should, don’t be afraid to get past the 17% read mark.  You will not be disappointed.
