He wants to keep her safe, but she won’t sit on the sidelines. The life of her goddaughter is in jeopardy and Mickey’s determination has him ready to handcuff her—or kiss her—in place. As time runs out though, the stakes run higher. They both struggle to ignore their attraction as they try to unravel a web of deception-- before it’s too late.

But, Graham can’t prevent himself from falling hard for Mickey despite her involvement in the case. Can Mickey and Graham work together to find the missing children and learn to trust one another in the process?
I really am a huge fan of romantic suspense and with that being said, I really set the bar high when I am reading a book in this genre. Danielle M. Haas has penned a stellar suspense with her storyline that gripped me right away. I found myself invested in the story of the three missing girls and working my mind around who can be behind the entire sex trafficking ring. Hass did a wonderful job at leaving me guessing right up until the end. She throws a few red herrings in your way and when the final reveal comes it is shocking.
I love the history of Chicago that Haas incorporates into her story. I am a big history buff and reading about the underground tunnels really held my interest and really had me wanting to go do my own internet search to learn more about the tunnels that are so richly used in this book.
While, I did love the suspense and the history part of the book, I am not sure I enjoyed the romance aspect quite as much. Graham and Mickey are great characters on their own, but together their romance did not grab me the way I wish it had. Their romance almost seemed forced and I never really felt a connection to Graham and Mickey falling for each other throughout the course of the story. I just felt like they had no chemistry together.
Bound By Danger is a gripping suspense with a lot of action surrounding a heart breaking scenario. If you are a fan of suspense then you will enjoy reading this story. For me, the suspense really is the heart of this book.
