A Date with DangerA Date with Danger
by Kari Iroz
LDS Adult Romantic Suspense
Paperback & ebook, 256 Pages
June 1st 2016 by Covenant Communications


She just wanted to shake up her love life. Jacklyn (Jack) Wyatt is the typical twenty-five-year-old living the typical Provo single life with the typical bad luck—at least until the FBI recruits her for a completely different type of dating.

A young woman has gone missing, and all signs point to her online dating profile as the kidnapper’s operating ground. But when suspects who crossed paths with the missing girl begin contacting Jack, the FBI sees its opportunity for an inside man—er, woman.

Now Jack will have to play the field, dating each of the men in an attempt to weed out the kidnapper. But with such an unusual array of characters vying for her attention, pinpointing the culprit may prove even harder than finding Mr. Right. And as more young women disappear, will Jack stay professional and objective, even with the handsome Special Agent Damon Wade just a whisper in her hidden microphone away?

My Review

A DATE WITH DANGER was such a fun read! That probably isn't the descriptive word you'd think to hear associated with a romantic suspense, but it fits this book. With plenty of sarcasm, Mormon clichés, humor, a little inspiration, some danger and suspense, some interesting online dating situations, a spunky heroine, and a dark and brooding hero (although also somewhat charming - think Darcy), this was an enjoyable and lol story from beginning to end. Then there was the romance, with a few swoon-worthy moments that are sure to cause some melting, and a climatic ending that ends on a sweet note. If you enjoy LDS romance, then this is recommended to you.

From the first page, this story kept a smile on my face. The main character, Jack, is such a riot. She downplays her self rather well, but it's with a voice like she's just saying it like it is. She's relatable in so many ways and I loved that about her. I also loved her quirkiness, even with her dramatic moments (and she has quite a few). Then there's Damon... He's doesn't give the best first impression, but he definitely grows on you over the course of the story and by the end, well, let's just say he makes a great knight in shining armor. They were such a good combination and their romantic moments were seriously sweet.

Then there's this crazy plot. I wasn't sure what angle the author was going to go with and exactly who the villain was. I actually didn't figure this one out until the character did, which is really rare for me and I loved that it wasn't super easy, but also made complete sense. The suspense is always kind of there in the back of the story, but doesn't overwhelm it. This is more of a fun chick-lit with some suspense, which then ramps up towards the end big time.

In the end, was it what I wished for? This was surprisingly (as in unexpected in the way the story went and with all the humor and romance for a suspense) such an enjoyable read. It's one I'd recommend for a good laugh and romance and just a good time. I'm definitely looking forward to more from this author!

About the Author

A veteran of the Utah dating trenches, Kari Iroz was once just another ordinary Mormon girl looking for love. She had lived these clichés and agonized through these awkward blind dates to laugh about them with you. Now a wife (he's dreamy) and mom to the two cutest girls in the world (disagree if you like, it' my bio), she writes comedy and speculative fiction.
