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.
Adrienne's Review v2
Falling for Danger is the third book in the Capital Confessions series.  This is Kate’s story.
While reading the first two books in the series really isn’t necessary, it would help to have some of that background information when you read Falling for Danger.  The first two books really set the tone for the Reynolds family and in my opinion this story is the summation.  Kate Reynolds loses the love of her life her fiance Matt Ryan when he’s killed in Afghanistan.  She’s determined to uncover the truth.
Kate’s a little spitfire and I really enjoyed her personality.  When push comes to shove, she’s shoving back hard.  I’m always a sucker for strong women in books.  Kate’s on a mission and no one can stop her.  She wants the truth no matter what it takes or whom it takes down.  As she gets closer to learning what really happened to Matt she herself becomes more and more in danger.
There were highs and lows for me in Falling for Danger.  I thing Chanel Cleeton is a talented author and I look forward to seeing where her writing takes us in the future.  The premise for this story was great.  I felt like this story was subtlety set up in the first two books.  So I was chomping at the bit to get it in my hands.  I am so very appreciative of how Ms. Cleeton handled the issue of PTSD.  This is a struggle so many of our soldiers face and I don’t believe enough is being done for them.  Any awareness at all is appreciated.
I also loved the plot. Political scandal, death, secrets, lies, it’s all here with a dose of romance.
This is also what I disliked about the book.  I felt like the romance actually took away from the plot.  I felt like the plot and everything it was about deserved so much more.  This was like the cliff notes version of what really happened. I hope that makes sense.  I would have take a book double the size in order to read a more detailed analysis of the story itself.  What happened is that I felt myself skimming over the fluff and repetitiveness to find the actual story. I was craving the pieces of information that were integral to the plot.
While this may not have lived up to my expectation, it’s still overall a good story.  I couldn’t wait to see how it would all play out.

When Blair and Gray are forced to work together, their explosive attraction becomes impossible to resist. But Gray’s demons have drawn him dangerously close to the edge, and Blair has spent her life playing by the rules. Will she break them for a shot at love?
