[Best-Book-Ever Review] Dangerous Denial by Amy Ray

Dangerous DenialDangerous Denial
Denying the past proves deadly for BK Hartshaw and Trevor Mayhew in this gripping noir novel where nothing is as it seems. 

BK is a rising star at a public relations firm, and tonight's charity ball should be a high point in her career. But a closely guarded secret threatens to destroy her chance for happiness with the only man she's ever loved... a man who is also hiding a deadly secret. 

Trevor has tried to put the past behind him, pretending it never happened. But the conniving father he's been running from for years has finally found him-and is determined to settle the score once and for all. 

BK and Trevor's deeply buried secrets are about to catch up with them-and everyone they know and love. 

Who will pay the ultimate price for their dangerous denials? 

"The sins of the parents are visited upon their children in this entertaining thriller. BK's (short for Beatrice Karen) and Trevor's lives collide when a charity ball erupts into violence. Tightly plotted suspenseful moments and a deftly-executed plot twist combine to keep readers holding onto this novel until the wee hours." - Publisher's Weekly (2008 ABNA review)

Dangerous Denial has left me on the edge of my seat the whole time and in absolute shock. There I have said it and stand 100% behind my words. 

As you start to review more books, the excitement that you felt before might be dulled out compare to when you first start reading. It's like getting used to a delicious cake that you ate way too much. But Dangerous Denial definitely recaptured my reading-taste buds. 

The story takes us to the past, to the time when Trevor or BK still haven't been born and the guy who claims to be Trevor's dad made an incredibly horrible plan to get the girl he wants only to himself. With this background on before they even existed, the author really shows us the history of these two and how messed up their situation is. 

I loved both Trevor and BK. Obviously, Lenny was mental because who else would act like that around anyone? I didn't want the story to end and the writing style itself definitely made me turn the pages without being bored or confused. 

My final thought? Hands down, one of the best suspense stories I've read in awhile. Must read!!
