Review: Dangerous Ally by Michelle Grey


Book Description:

Lacey Jordan is expecting dinner, and hopefully, an engagement announcement. Not her own, of course. After two serious screw-ups, she’s all but sworn off relationships. When she arrives at her father’s house to celebrate his future happiness though, he’s nowhere to be found.
As the hours pass, the worst scenarios Lacey’s mind can conjure send her rushing into action. However, reality proves even more frightening as she discovers that her father’s recent scientific breakthrough is one that people would kill for. To make matters worse, the source of the information is the one person she’d hoped to never see again.
Caleb Mansfield, her father’s former protege and her former lover, needs Lacey’s cooperation, and the very trust he’d stolen years before. But Lacey can’t be certain if Caleb’s working with her or against her.
Running out of time, she has nowhere else to turn. As the trail leading to her father narrows, Lacey becomes a target, risking her life to save him. Too late, she understands that with Caleb back in her life, she’s risking her heart as well.


My Review

I was given this e-book in exchange for an honest review.   The story is about Lacy and Caleb falling in love during the trying time of finding her father after he was kidnapped.  The story is not super suspenseful, yes, it has the suspense of trying to find Bill, Lacy's dad.  But a lot of the story is about Lacy and Caleb, with things thrown in about her dad's disappearance.  Lacy and Caleb had a heavy summer romance a few years ago, so when they meet again you can feel the chemistry.  Throughout the story I did feel Lacy's heartache over her dad and her past-which was really holding her back with Caleb.
