Danger’s First Kiss (Dangerous Web, #0.5). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Danger’s First Kiss by Aleatha Romig

My rating: 4 of 5 stars.

“A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes.” ~ Mack David, et all for Cinderella

On the surface, the world glitters with all things only money can buy. My thoughts should be on the danger lurking beneath the surface. The money and power come from places and dealings the world pretends don’t exist. I’m here at this debutante ball as a representative of the new Sparrow underworld. The clock is ticking as alliances are formed and enemies eliminated. 

There isn’t time to be distracted, and yet I catch a glimpse of the stunning woman across the room. 

Surely, she’s untouchable to someone like me. Maybe she’s royalty or the daughter of a dignitary. Yet I’m drawn to her in a way I can’t describe. Her beautiful, seductive smile, bright emerald eyes, and luscious red hair beckon me until I find myself by her side.

Her voice sings to me while her laugh shines sunlight into my dark and dangerous world. 

And then the clock strikes midnight and she’s gone. 

I want more than that first kiss. 

From New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig comes an intriguing and fun prologue to her newest romantic-suspense trilogy, Dangerous Web. DANGER’S FIRST KISS – A modern Cinderella story. 

This novella is set in the dangerous world of the Sparrow Webs. You do not need to read Web of Sin, Tangled Web, or Web of Desire to get caught up in this new dark-romance saga, Dangerous Web. 

DANGER’S FIRST KISS is the prequel to book one of the DANGEROUS WEB trilogy.

Danger’s First Kiss

Short Cinderella retelling!

The following ratings are out of 5:
Romance: 💋💋💋
Heat/Steam: 🔥🔥
Story/Plot: 👏👏👏👏
World building: 🌎🌏🌍🌎🌏
Character development: 🤓🥸😎😤😳

The setting: Chicago

The Hero: Reid – Works for Sparrow, a mysterious company with Mason Pierce, brother of Lorna. There is a Sterling Sparrow that runs the company but not a lot is told about what is going on other than it is dangerous.

The heroine: Lorna – grew up in heartbreaking circumstances. For a while she lived with an abusive stepfather and two stepsisters and rarely had enough to eat. Now she works as a hotel maid for one of her former stepsisters who hates her.

The Love Story: Mason needs a date to a masquerade ball he is attending, but wants to bring someone who won’t mind if he is busy much of the time, so he brings Lorna. She meets a handsome man.

The story was cute and I liked the way it both followed the cinderella story and that Lorna kept comparing it to cinderella. She definitely could see the comparisons and also for a girl like her from the wrong side of the tracks to be attending such an event, she knew it was like a fairytale and soon it would be over and she would return to real life. This is a prequel so the love story continues in the book Dusk but it is no longer a contemporary fairytale retelling.
