Dangerous Ally

The Pinnacles of Power

Jessica Lauryn immerses her heroine and her readers into the lives of two notorious criminals. Lilah is such an ambitious career driven woman and I loved how her family and her insecurities often over rode her solid business sense. Lucas is a mysterious bad boy with an honesty that was both unexpected and refreshing. I loved how we got to see little pieces of him emerge that seemed to surprise him but not Lilah. His father was downright creepy, make no wonder Lucas turned out the way he did. I have to give Lilah credit for staying because I would have high-tailed it out of that sad mansion maybe even before setting one foot inside! I think I might have had a better understanding of some of the characters had I read Lilah’s sister’s story as I was a little lost when it came to a few of the key players but overall the personalities were interesting and the action intriguing. I enjoyed the epic feel of this story and think fans of heroes with a dark edge will enjoy it.
