I stumbled across this book on Amazon a few months ago and decided to give it a read. Let's face it, I love a good alpha male, and Jake promised to be everything I love - hot, Irish, and a SEAL? Yes, please! I wasn't disappointed. This was a quick, easy ready. I really enjoyed the story, particularly the relationship between Jake and his father and brothers. I have added the rest of the series to my TBR list.
Dangerous Secrets by Abbie Zanders
Two secret pasts... one passionate love story.
Taryn Malone is stranded, broke, and desperate for help. But even if the sexy bartender she's been eyeing offers her a job for the evening... even if he seduces her with his impossibly intense blue eyes... even if every fiber of her heart tells her to stay with him... she can't.
Because Taryn Malone doesn't exist.
Jake Callaghan has been running the family's Irish pub for years now. When he sees Taryn standing out alone in the rain, he does what he's been trained to do as a SEAL - he rescues her. It has nothing to do with her full, firm curves, or her loose, golden-blonde hair, or the way she brushes against him that sends lightning bolts through his body. It's just the right thing to do.
But both Taryn and Jake are hiding secrets from each other. Dangeroussecrets. And neither one of them knows just how dangerous it can be to fall in love...

About the Author:
Abbie Zanders is a wife and mother of three (including a set of identical twins), born and raised in the mountains and valleys of Northeastern Pennsylvania. She has a degree in Computer Science with a minor in Mathematics. Though she has spent the last 25+ years developing financial software for healthcare-based companies, she has also held second jobs as a pub waitress, a restaurant dessert baker, a secretary, and a bread shelf stock girl.
Hobbies and interests include romance novels (all genres), 80's hair bands and heavy metal, muscle cars, and really big dogs.
A voracious reader, she carries both a Nook and a Kindle with her at all times, as well as several mini-sized notebooks to jot down ideas when inspiration strikes. Writing is a life-long pursuit; it began somewhere in elementary school when she used to secretly draft scripts for then-popular TV shows, writing herself in as a main character, of course. Things have changed a lot since then - she now focuses on love stories for mature audiences - but her passion for writing remains the same.
She is both grateful and honored to be able to share her stories with those having a similar penchant for love stories, and promises her readers two things: no cliffhangers, and always happily ever afters.
