A bad-boy member of an elite Special Ops team, Mercer has never been assigned an undercover mission he couldn’t complete. But when his latest job requires him to gain the trust―and get into the bed―of his newest target, the sexy, fiery Colonel’s daughter, he has a whole new challenge ahead of him. All evidence points to her being a traitor to the country he’s sworn to protect, but the crackling desire between them is too strong a feeling to ignore…



Zoe has always kept her secrets close to the vest. The only woman in a decorated military family, she’s been taught that to let someone close is to flirt with disaster. But when the dangerously handsome, alpha-strong Mercer comes blazing into her life full-speed, it’s all Zoe can do to resist his wicked seduction. As danger circles closer, Zoe must decide if she can trust him to protect her―but there’s no way he could be bad when he makes her feel this good


Received this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Rating: five-star-rating-md 5/5


I had no idea what to expect when I first received the ARC of “Dangerous to Know” by Dawn Ryder. This was my first time reading Author Dawn Ryder and I am excited to read more. All I can say is that I am so glad to meet Mercer and Zoe.

Mercer, who never fails an assignment, is a bad boy that is part of an Elite Special Ops team. I was instantly enthralled with Mercers past; the things he’d been through and how strong he always seems to be. I am not going to ruin anything or post spoilers of course, but, I wil tell you this: the complicated relationships, story line, action, mystery, and drama kept me addicted, wanting more and more.

This is where we meet Zoe. Mercer goes right in with his next assignment not thinking his life would change a bit. Get in, do the assignment, and move on with life. As you would expect, things become more difficult than Mercer or Zoe could have ever expected.

This novel gave me chills and then at other times I wanted to throw it against a wall! I was so satisfied by the time I completed this book that I wanted to re-read it again, just to be sure I haven’t missed anything.

We all secretly love a bad boy… and Mercer does not disappoint. I know every reader loves a strong heroine, and let me tell you, Zoe fills that role more than others. The seduction is scorching and entertaining with action packed scenes which are full of hot energy, racing hearts, and witty banter between the two characters.

I am so glad to be given the privilege to read “Dangerous to Know,” and I can’t wait for the next installment in the “Unbroken Heroes Series.” Author Dawn Ryder has really outdone herself. I am now officially a loyal reader that will be waiting by the sidelines then running to purchase the next novel as soon as it is out and ready.

Riveting, explosive, unique, dramatic, emotional, scorching hot scenes, and romance. “Dangerous to Know” has everything a girl needs when she loves reading romance! I experienced many different emotions during the process of this read. By the time the ending was near I was so sad, but so satisfied. I like feeling this way after I read a book and let me tell you: this novel brings excitement for what is to come next.
