But when she meets the man who was supposed to be her nemesis, Lilah is tempted by a passion far stronger than the desire to see her name in print...There was no doubt in Lucas's mind that eliminating his father's new executive assistant--namely, the bastard he's hired to help steal Project Gemstone--would be effortless. But with eyes like green jewels and a body made for a man's hands, Lilah Benson isn't exactly the adversary he was expecting to face...Though Lilah may be the one person capable of bringing him to his knees, Lucas will stop at nothing to keep his empire secure. He will have it all: His Fortune, His Legacy, and Lilah Benson in his bed... ** A BookStrand Mainstream Romance

A very exciting read! I read the story of Lilah's sister Lena in Dangerous Proposal and was excited to see what happens a few years later. Dangerous Ally grabbed me from the first page! Lilah walks right into the fire, accepting a job working for the enemy in hopes of taking down his son Lucas, her sister's ex-fiance and the notorious diamond-smuggling kingpin who is the mastermind behind Project Gemstone. What she is not expecting is for Lucas to be so handsome...or seductive. The two heat up the pages from the moment they lock eyes! The title of this story alludes to the danger surrounding the main characters, a key element in this story and the series. But there is a sweet romance that develops between Lilah and Lucas that takes center stage. Very well written! This one definitely gets 5 stars from me!

Meet Lilah Benson. Sister of Lena Benson, who we met in book one 'Dangerous Ally'. She did everything to escape Lucas Ramone, so why is Lilah in the home of the sworn enemy of her sister? Lilah is portrayed as a strong woman with smarts. So how does she get into so much trouble? She finds herself getting in deeper with deceit and lies all for her name on what could be the biggest story of her career. But the Ramone's have a different agenda. They plan on using her to get to their own means. Can she play with the the sharks or will she get eaten alive!? Lucas Ramone. He has had a tainted name for as long as he can remember. He's known as the dark, sordid business man. He will do everything in his power to keep his father, Raphael, from taking over all he's worked for. Even if it means seducing the beautiful, enticing Lilah. But can he get away with it or will his heart have him making other decisions. Will feelings get in the way of what he really needs to be focusing on? In this book we will find a whole cast of characters that are intertwined with nothing but cunning deceptions and untruths. No one knows who is working against them. No one knows if the words coming out are lies. Every character is written wonderfully and you can get into the story with nail biting suspense. I was so happy that I was able to read this sequel. Jessica Lauryn absolutely has grown with her writing and the scenes she portrays to her readers leave your head filled with splendid images. I can't forget to tell you either...this girl can write a sex scene that leaves you fully sated. The passion between Lucas and Lilah is powerful and sexy! You don't want to miss it! If you are interested in mysteries full of betrayals and romance full of ups & downs, then this book is for you! I give this book my thumbs up!

The first novel in the series, Dangerous Ally, features new reporter Lilah Benson and sexy bad boy Lucas Ramone. You see, Lucas is a diamond smuggling kingpin who used to be engaged to her sister Lena, and also Lilah’s nemesis. So why is it she decides to take a job working for his father in the same home Lucas lives? The answer is easy really it gives her a chance to write the story that will make her career soar. The plan sounds easy enough until she actually meets him again and is tempted by the unwanted desire he invokes inside of her. Oh, he’s dangerous alright, because now that her heart is involved Lucas is more powerful than ever but is he as ruthless and hard as she first suspects, or is he willing to make changes to save them both from the dangers that lurk in the background? A tempting read, right? I thought so. The suspense begins immediately, and the chemistry between Lilah and Lucas is scorching. Add in manipulative relatives, sexy seductive staff members, a little stubbornness and a will to fight for what’s yours, and you’ve got yourself this intriguing read that will keep you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end. I loved it!

:Lilah Benson is after a story. Lucas Ramone wants to keep his secrets while getting her into his bed. Jessica Lauryn does a good job of showing how love redeems a macho hero in this exciting tale full or romance, sesuality, mysteries and suspense!
