Reunited in Danger by Joya Fields
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

GENRE: Contemporary
THEME: Mystery, Action, and Romance

Keely Allen’s life goes into a tailspin when her adoptive father is viciously attacked. And the detective who offers to help her? None other than the sexy, love ’em and leave ’em man who once broke her heart. Homicide Detective Logan North carries a haunting secret that has always kept his emotions on lockdown. But when he is forced to work alongside his former lover, the heat is still there between them, burning hotter than ever. Logan is determined to keep the luscious and tempting Keely at a distance...but he made a vow not to leave until all are safe. On their race to solve the tangled web of crime, drug deals, and human trafficking, dangers abound—both to their lives…and to their hearts.


I haven’t read a good cop drama story in quite a while, Fields focuses on some very tough subjects, with a tone of mystery and suspense that is circulated around two strong characters.

Reunited in Danger follows Keely, a member of the Child Protective Service who is at that point in her career where she’s wondering if this job is worth the heartache. She doesn’t win all the cases and it hurts when she doesn’t. But when a call about her father being attacked brings back the one man she didn’t think she’d see again, everything changes. Logan was her childhood friend and ex, but he left without telling her and have spent 10 years questioning what happened. Now they must work together to solve the mystery of her fathers attack and as they get closer to the to the truth they get closer to danger.

Keely Allen is a dedicated woman, strong and very independent. After her father’s attack and reconnecting with her ex, who is a cop, she is on a mission to find out why someone would attack an innocent man. Her father is a pastor and man who only wish to help others, continuing the work he and his wife created in helping pregnant woman who need guidance. Keely and Logan have a lot to work through and the past has put a wall between them and a lot of anger. Nonetheless I enjoyed reading how they push through their differences and slowly solve the case together.

Logan is a man that has quite a temper, he seems to always blame his father for his faults and cant grasp that he’s a good man. Keely cares for Logan no matter what happened in the past and only wants the truth from him, which will shock the reader once they find out. He carries a lot of baggage and only Keely can help him get through his struggles even if he fights with her about it. I loved their chemistry and how they work through their problems while solving the case. I felt he was a bit too stubborn at times and just wished he’d see what was right in front of him.

Overall this was a great mystery story, the ending was quite shocking and I never knew where Fields was going to take the duo next. This was a heavy plot but really well written and the characters development connects the reader emotionally to them with ease. Reunited in Danger has it all with mystery, suspense, romance, plot twist, and memorable character.

Character guest post:

Keely Allen, heroine of Reunited in Danger by Joya Fields.

Thanks so very much for inviting me here today! My name is Keely Allen and I’m thrilled to get the chance to chat about second chances in life. I’m one of those lucky people who’s had some tough times, but the right people have stepped into my life and things have always worked out.

I don’t remember my mom very well because I was very young when she died. What I do remember, was that Mom usually drunk or high most of the time. I learned to fend for myself, and hide from the trouble-making people she hung out with. It was a sad and tough time of my life, but things changed when Ben and Lillian adopted me. They loved me like their own child, signed me up for sports activities, and made my childhood a happy one. I got a second chance at a happy childhood.

That’s why I chose to become a social worker. I know what it’s like to live in fear as a child. I know what it’s like to wonder if you’ll always be hungry or if you’ll ever feel safe. Helping kids get the childhood they deserve became my mission. Lots of people think of social workers as the bad guys when we take kids out of the only home they’ve ever known. But we’re not like that. We try to keep kids with their families and we work to give parents the skills they need to be good parents. Sometimes the parents are willing to make changes. Sometimes they aren’t. What’s best for the children, though? That’s what I focus on. Second chances for kids.

Another second chance for me rates pretty darn high on the romance list. I mean how many people find the guy they want to marry at age thirteen? I knew I loved Logan North when I was just a teenager. Sure, he teased me, and laughed when I danced under the fire hydrant water in the summer, but I think he liked me, too. Then when I was a high school senior, we made it official and became boyfriend and girlfriend.

Unfortunately, he took off without a word right after my senior prom. He left me heartbroken and I never wanted to see him again. But as the pain eased, and I dated other guys, I realized nobody would ever fill the void that Logan left. I called him. Left messages. He never called back. So I guessed he didn’t feel the same way I did. Then, ten years after Logan left, my dad was attacked. Logan’s a cop, so he couldn’t stay away.

The moment I spotted Logan, I realized he still had feelings for me. I could see it on his face. So why didn’t he return my calls? Why had he left without a word? Seeing him sent my emotions flying. I wanted him, but I needed to guard my heart. Yet, as we spent more time together, working on my dad’s case, we couldn’t deny our former chemistry was still there.

There’s something very special about second chances. An opportunity to get it right. An appreciation for what you have, because you know what it’s like to be without. Logan is my soul mate. I knew it then, and it’s confirmed by his presence now. Now we just have to trust our feelings and let this second chance at love develop into something we both know we’ve wanted for a long, long time.

I just love second chances, don’t you? Have you had a second chance at something? I’d love to hear about it!
