What's the danger in one hot kiss?

When Claire Layton discovers a dead body in a Dumpster behind her restaurant, the killer demands she find the victim's phone and flash drive or face fatal consequences. Her unlikely ally in the search is a cocky, muscle-bound private investigator Jake Warrick, who ticks her off almost as much as he turns her on...

Jake just wants to solve the case, but the impulsive and fiery Claire turns his plan upside down. Together they uncover a more complex crime than they'd ever imagined while things between them go from hot to downright combustible...

3.5 Stars - This was another fun read by Avery Flynn, filled with action, suspense, and steam. Claire and Jake have tons of chemistry and it was so much fun watching the two of them fight the attraction. From the first moment they meet, you just know that that Claire’s impulsive actions and Jake’s alpha tendencies are going to cause some tension between the two, and that all that tension is going to lead to some super-steamy times. Wrap all that up in a murder mystery that puts lives at stake, throw in a family of Layton’s that are always in each other’s business, and this is one action-packed, fast-paced read.  I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.

Reviewed by Angela and posted at Under The Covers Book Blog I’ve read a few of Avery Flynn’s books before, and I’ve quite enjoyed them. Obviously, when this book became available for review, I took a chance. If you didn’t know, Dangerous Kiss, formerly known as Temptation Creek was first published in 2011.  This year, this book got a face lift and a new name.  I’ll be honest, the original covers never caught my eyes to give this book a glance. So, kudos to Ms. Flynn on the decision to update the covers. They are very sexy, eye catching and the book has a good story to back it up with. Claire Layton was taking out the last bag of trash for the night. She was just closing up the restaurant when she finds a dead body in the dumpster. Cops came, reports taken and now, the investigation of the murder has begun. But not without the help of her deputy brother and Jake Warrick, a PI hired by the victim’s father. Things get complicated when the murderer’s focus turns to her. I enjoyed Claire and Jake. They’re attraction from the start was obvious and palpable. While Claire was everything feisty, Jake was cool and collected, but when they get together, they are very sexy making them a very good match. Besides the romance, the murder mystery was was also enjoyable. Few scenes had me biting my nails. But what I enjoyed the most was getting to know a little more about The Layton family. They seem to have a very tight knit relationship. The snark between the siblings were very amusing, and Claire’s brothers are very intriguing. Needless to say, I am very excited and looking forward to the Layton Brothers’ story.

Very entertaining book with a gorgeous, sexy, Alpha man, Jake Warrick. This book has it all, mystery, suspense, humor and best of all, crazy family members. The chemistry between Jake and Claire was smoldering from the moment they met. The Mystery of the dead girl played out in a very well-written story line. There was always something going on. And the ending? Brilliant! At first it scared me but after I finish the last page I couldn't stop laughing.  Totally not what I was expecting. Fantastic ending! I can't wait to read the next book in the Dangerous Love series. Received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

Great New Series! This is a great new series; this is the first book in The Layton Family series by Avery Flynn. Claire owns her own restaurant, when she finds a dead body in the dumpster behind the restaurant, the killer demands she find the victim’s phone and flash drive or she will be next. Jake is a private investigator and is determined to solve the case but Claire turns his plan upside down. If you are looking for a great romance with some suspense and mystery then you need to read this book. I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series.  A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

Avery Flynn does a great job with romantic suspense, and this book is no exception! Claire and Jake first meet when she finds a dead body at her restaurant and he is the private investigator hired by the dead girl's father to find out what happens. They then fall in love over a matter of the few days it takes to find out what happened. It is a great romantic suspense story.

This book just grabbed me right away and got my hooked on the Layton family. The family banter and closeness. Claire is one tough cookie and a good match for Jake. Jake just wants to close this case, but soon takes him on a lot of twists and turns. His growing attraction to Claire throws some kinks into his plans. The growing threat and danger is lurking. Can Jake protect Claire? Or is he too late?

Dangerous Tease will take you on wild treasure hunt, filled with excitement, seduction, and suspense. Avery Flynn continues the Layton series with another great read! Sam and Josie couldn’t be more different…or so we think. Their attraction to each other is immediate and as they get to know each other better, they find out when they work together instead of apart, it’s much more enjoyable. This whole series is amazing and now I want book four.

Excellent read! Kaitlin and Beckett have always been verbal sparring partners, but when Kaitlin is forced to watch the man of her dreams marry her own sister, it appears Beckett is the only one who really gets how hard it is for her. When one night of passion turns into an unplanned pregnancy Beckett is determined to do the right thing. The right thing turns into the thing he really wants the most. Now to convince Kaitlin of that!! I definitely recommend this one

ARC provided by author in exchange for a honest review Avery Flynn has created a romantic masterpiece with this series! It has the perfect blend of romance, suspense, and blushworthy sexual content. I was also pleasantly surprised to find that the story based in my home state. Claire's character really connected with me, and it was refreshing to read about a strong, daring and fiercely independent woman who wasn't afraid to go for what she wanted. I enjoyed the dialog between Jake and Claire, their "dance" around each other was very captivating! It had me on the edge of my seat the whole way through! This is definitely a book/series I will recommend to all of my reading friends, Avery Flynn does not disappoint with this one!
