Lady Raven RAVE!


This was another good read. I found the story and relationship between Summer and Sin sweet and frustrating. Sin was made so deliciously that I could rip him from the pages of the book. He had this stubborn wall that was a bit hard to break down because of him fighting his feelings for Summer and the real reason he is fighting his feelings. Summer was a good character as well. When she got frustrated with Sin as well, she took matters into her own hands and did a bit of the chasing. I tr

I know a good book when I see one, or should I say read one. Let me tell you Francis Ray's "A Dangerous Kiss" was a great book. Summer and Sin are both people who believe that "Happily ever after" or "Forever" isn't for them. I really enjoyed the path the story took; this book was filled with all consuming passion and a secret that Sin doesn’t want to share unless he has to.

Personally I think this novel could have picked up faster, I mean we need character development but there was just a littl

Another great addition to this series. Summer and Sin were just so cute together. They both tried so hard to hide their attraction to one another to no avail. They had the foundation of a wonderful friendship, so their physical relationship was unbelievable strong. I did think though that Sin's secret was made a bigger deal than it should have been. Yes it was monumental, but there should have been better communication there. That was the only hiccup for me in this book. Overall a really good re ...more

This book had romance, love, tears, heartache, laughter, family and friends along with a happily ever after for Sin and Summer. They fought the chemistry all they could having been friends for 12 years and neither wanted their friendship or dynamics to change. But change they did and only for the better. Seeing them dance around each other and for those around them to realize the change in fe

I liked the book. I loved how Sin was so concerned for others, he consistently put his friends and family first always putting himself on the back-burner. I loved how Summer found love and fought for love to not leave her side. She stayed strong for Sin just as he had done all those years for her. Love had been there all along posing as a simple friendship; however, because they were both fighters, they fought for their love.I wish it would have went further or that there was another book which ...more

Of the three Alex, CJ, Sin, Sin hands down has captured me from the first book in this trilogy (Kiss) Grayson Friends. Sin is the hottie with the total body, money, smarts, and moody. Summer and Sin have known each other for a very long time. Summer also knows Sin is the man that has her heart. She wants him fiercely. She has watched as both Alex and CJ fell hard for Dianne & Ciecly. when will it be her turn.

This is the third installment in the Grayson friends, Kiss trilogy! A Dangerous Kiss is the story of Payton "Sin" Sinclair and Summer Radcliff. I have been waiting on their story since With Just One Kiss came out and Francis Ray did not disappoint. I could tell from the start that Summer was going to be the one to knock Sin's socks off and that is exactly what she did. Summer and Sin both have their problems but learned to work through them and see that love conquers all. This was my favorite st ...more

This was a book I was waiting for I just had to know Sins secret , when I found out I felt so bad . Sin and Summer were meant to be together but I felt the road to romance was long , and boring ,when got to 60% the Book got good . It was touching the way Sin cared for his brother and friends , It was touching how he was with Summer. Summer was a strong woman who would be there for Sin to the end I was really happy the way this story ended I just wish the road there was more interesting.

I loved this book from beginning to end. It made me reflect upon my own life and how men just can't seem to tell you how they really feel because of being so stubborn. It also made me realize that even I need to open up more so that this one man could just say how he feels before I walk. Very great read filled with a lot of mystery until close to the end.
Another great Francis Ray book. I teared up when Alex showed up in Dallas for Sin and again when Summer and Sin were in his office talking about things. Such a great story of love overcoming all else if you just step out on faith.

This was the book, out of the series, that I wanted to read the most. I am a sucker for tortured souls in love but for circumstances beyond their control can't be together. Unfortunately, I was disappointed by this story.

“Payton “Sin” Sinclair was an unapologetic people-watcher. As a sports consultant, working with some of the biggest and most recognizable athletes in sports and business, he had to be able to read the smallest nuances of others. That ability was just one of the unique attributes that set him apart from the competition and made him the go-to person when corporations wanted to align themselves with the top professional athletes in the country.” 6 likes
