Dangerous Beauty ~ Review

Dangerous Beauty
By Melissa Koslin

Liliana Vela has one chance to stay out of the clutches of the men who have destroyed her life. With no other safe haven or refuge offered her, Liliana accepts Meric Toledan's offer to keep her safe from those trafficking her by taking his name. 

Meric never wanted to get married, but he had to do anything possible to make sure that the young woman was not sent back to Mexico, where she would be an easy target for the men who were selling her. Someone with money had decided that they wanted her, and the only way to protect her was with his wealth and means.

Caught in a world she doesn't understand, Liliana is confused by Meric and why he would help her in such a way. He is haunted by some secret pain and holds himself apart while offering her a chance to heal from the evil she had faced.

Now I really can't say too much more about this book without revealing some major plot spoilers. But this book had some very unexpected plot twists that really made this into an I-can't-put-it-down-until-I-get-to-the-end book. Throughout, one is left wondering why. Why was Liliana targeted? Who would go to such lengths? This is romantic suspense at its best, and throughout, it imparts an important message that one is often unaware of - human trafficking. This is a moving and eye-opening book that is a must-read.

I was provided a complimentary copy of this book with no expectations but that I provide my honest opinion, all thoughts expressed are my own.

About the Book:
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?
