14 Sep 2015

Book Title: Falling for Danger
Author: Chanel Cleeton
Series: Capital Confessions #3
Release Date: September 15th, 2015
Genres: Political Romance
The author of Flirting with Scandal presents her third book in a sexy contemporary romance series about three sisters in a powerful political family, the scandals that threaten to destroy them, and the passion that drives them…

Kate Reynolds has just graduated from college and is determined to make it on her own. Her job as a junior political analyst at the CIA is a dream come true and the perfect opportunity to find answers about the night that’s plagued her for four years—the night she lost her fiancé, Matt, on a Special Forces mission in Afghanistan. Kate’s consumed with uncovering the truth and avenging the man she loved and lost, even if it means risking her own life to prove that his death wasn’t an accident.

When she gets too close to discovering what happened that fateful night and danger arrives on her doorstep, Kate’s stunned by the man who comes to her rescue. Together, they begin to dig for the truth, fighting to stay alive as they’re dragged down into a world of secrets and lies. But when the threat hits close to home, Kate must choose between vengeance and a future with the man who’s ignited a fire inside her that she thought died long ago.



"I knew this had danger written all over it. Knew there was something wild in him that hadn't been there before."

Right from the start, the Capital Confessions series got me hooked onto each of the Reynolds sisters' stories but this one is hands down my ABSOLUTE favorite! The irony was when I reading the entire series previously, Kate Reynolds was my least favorite sister and I wasn't even sure if my love for the series will continue up to the very end when it came to her story. But color me surprised! I know I shouldn't have doubted Chanel Cleeton when it comes to delivering another kickass heroine.

This final instalment will also be the hardest to review as any details of the plot may give out the most crucial parts away, so I'll try my best to give this book justice by my vague review.

This one had much more action, more intensity that keeps you on the very edge and the stakes have never been higher. Kate Reynolds is still grieving over the loss of her childhood friend and fiance, Matt whom she believes that his death was not a mere accident. Joining the CIA is part of her mission to investigate his death but when she starts uncovering the truth, it'll be more than just answers that comes to surface. Her life might just be on the line too and her saving grace will come from the one man she least expected to. 

This book was just full of surprises and packed with intensity that had me flipping the pages so fast. Before I knew it, I nearly wailed in agony knowing that my favourite series was coming to an end so soon. Reading Kate's story and understanding more depth of her love shared between Matt definitely had my heart breaking for her. I mean, I always knew she had this undying love for him since the start of the series that drove her into this cold facade she put up but tapping into her thoughts finally led me to understand her motivation.

The romance was a slow build-up but it reeked with such strong sexual tension between our two leads that have you rooting from them since the start. Both have baggage on their own that needs to be confronted but I truly enjoyed seeing the support they had for each other as they try to mend their broken bridges.

Sex, scandals and politics; The Capital Confessions series is definitely not a series to be missed and will be sitting proudly on my top reads list for 2015. Although I'm quite surprised by how this series wrapped up in the end, I thought it was still befitting given the circumstances of how everything played out. Similar to the prior books, there was no petty drama in the read and both MCs made mature decisions that didn't drive me up the wall. Throughout the series, the sisters always had each others' backs and it was just amplified even more in the final instalment. I loved every single moment of it and I can't wait to read more from this author!

Falling for Danger is the third and final instalment in the Capital Confessions series. 
Each book can be read as a standalone but is recommended to be read in order.
