Dangerous Beauty by Melissa Koslin Review


Liliana Vela hates the term victim. She’s not a victim, she’s a fighter. Stubborn and strong with a quiet elegance, she’s determined to take back her life after escaping the clutches of human traffickers in her poor Mexican village. But she can’t stay safely over the border in America–unless the man who aided in her rescue is serious about his unconventional proposal to marry her.

Meric Toledan was just stopping at a service station for a bottle of water. Assessing the situation, he steps in to rescue Liliana from traffickers. If he can keep his secrets at bay, his wealth and position afford him many resources to help her. But the mysterious buyer who funded her capture will not sit idly by while his prize is stolen from him.

Melissa Koslin throws you right into the middle of the action in this high-stakes thriller that poses the question: What is the price of freedom?

My Thoughts:

I was intrigued by the cover of this book and the synopsis. The story starts out with a bang and puts the reader right in the middle of the action. I was on board and turning pages quickly for about the first half of the story. Around the halfway mark, I felt that it began to lose some steam. The plot began to felt a bit unrealistic and it got a bit boring. I think people that love romance would enjoy this more than I did.

I received a copy of this book to read and review from the author/publisher. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
