Barely 3 stars, bumped up because I chuckled several times. This paranormal erotic-suspense borrows largely from the X-Men. I Dream of Danger is #2 in the Ghost Ops series. I preferred the prequel, Heart of Danger (my review) but yet still enjoyed this installment. It's spicy, fun, fantastical, and totally over-the-top.

Spoilers are hidden.

Series Overview: Set about 15 years in the future, in California, the series is filled with absurd improbabilities, high-tech gadgetry, and hot military he

Lisa Marie Rice is one of my favorite erotic/romantic suspense authors, and I love this futuristic (but not overly SciFi) world she's created. I've been so looking forward to this second installment of her Ghost Ops series, and like the first book, Heart of Danger, it's action packed, fast paced and sexy, but I have to be honest, it also dragged in places.

Approximately the first 30% of the story is devoted to to the backstory, and while that might seem like a bit much, there's a lot of importa
Oh Lord this draagged endlessly for me . I was not connected and i was expecting so much more from this . The author has an annoying repetitiveness where she explains various events from the initial book in almost every different POV . It simply was not needed , I understand this happening at the start of the story but during right until the end was a little too much.

2/3 of the story was unnecessary, I did not get to the good parts of the whole story or understood what the plot line the book was

3.5 stars

The story and characters were really good, but the reason I'm only rating it a 3.5 stars is because of the constant repetition. I found the author continued to 'remind' the me of past events which started to piss me off so I found myself skimming to get to the good parts.

I really liked Nick and Elle's characters, and I like where the author went with Dr. Lee's character.

I can't wait to read Jon's story!
I’m a bit on the fence about this book. On one hand, I found it a little slow to start. Sure, the main couple of this book Elle and Nick were sizzling hot when they were together. But – that blasted little thing called communication, or rather, the lack of communication got in the way of their happily ever after. During this first third of the book, I actually double checked the book to make sure that it was in fact a Ghost Ops book.

Fast forward to ten years later. Yes, the book does a ten year
Same complaints from book one. Although in this one it was just too much. It was repetitive and the villain's POV was boring and confusing. I just started skipping the villain's thoughts as well as the thoughts of the H/h.

11/09/12 - I have to wait until summer of 2013?? Why is Lisa Marie Rice torturing me with such long wait times?

On another note: Will there possibly be glowing vaginas in this one?

I read Heart of Danger, the debut of the Ghost Ops series earlier this year and enjoyed the creative story angle Rice presents by delving into a not so distant future world of elite military warriors who are considered domestic terrorists by the U.S. government and are now fugitives. Although I Dream of Danger does provide exposition about the plot conflicts, it is best to start the series with the first book. I felt the background information provided in this second book was more to help reader ...more

This is a great read. The storyline is interesting and it has a supernatural element that I didn't expect, which makes Ghost Ops different than all of her other series.

I didn't realize IDOD is the second book of this series until mid-way, when the character Catherine Young start to appear quite prominently in the story. The rapport that she has with Nick made me curious and I was surprise to find out this is a second book. But luckily enough, even without reading the first book, I could follow t
Ella Thomason has dreams of the day she will be reunited with Nick Ross, the young man that her father took in and then disappeared 5 years ago. She's pictured it a thousand times, but she never imagined that reunion would take place over her father's grave. Just when she thought all was lost, Nick returns. Duty calls, a lost note and misunderstandings keep Nick and Ella separated for 10 more years.

Unbelievable is a good word to describe the Ghost Op series.

I Dream of Danger brings the whole crew back together to save a woman who is being hunted by Arka Pharmaceutical for her supernatural abilities. Elle can astral-project since she was a little girl. She knew there was something different about herself but never truly understood it until she studied it in college and joined Arka Pharmaceutical. Now, it’s the one thing that could

How does one go from a 4 to a 3? Two reasons.

one - the sequelitis was strong with this one. Seems like every time a character reappeared, we were reminded of their importance in this tale. I mean; I just read the first book. I didn't need reminding repeatedly how the captain and the other three near-invalids had been tortured, experimented on, and ultimately rescued. Yet the reminders were there, at least twice. The villain's purpose in life was told more than once as well.

Doormat thy name is Elle. I truly HATE doormat heroines. So this was not a good read for me. Plus it had that extra creep factor of her being able to astral project and has to watch him fuck loads of women. Just so many complaints, I can’t even believe I finished it.

Two People with the interlaced lives.
Nick, orphan and fugitive of an abusive adoptive home.
Elle, daughter of a judge and with privileged childhood.
He was helped by her father and had a better life to leave of that moment. And the connection between Nick and Elle was intense right from the start.
Then it occurs a separation, he gets vanished by five years, only coming back at a big fragility and sadness moment in Elle's Life. To the long these years she never stopped dreaming with him and these dr

So this begins like a romance novel, but sort of turns into I Am Legend and then leaves you dangling for the next book to find out what happens. I can’t really explain it very well, but it feels like the first half of the book is all prologue, and the second half of the book is the actual story which then ends.

The storyline itself is actually super interesting and I’m absolutely hooked on the series, but this book couldn’t decide whether it wanted to be a Roman

I Dream of Danger is book 2 in the Ghost Ops series by Lisa Marie Rice. I could hardly wait to get this book after reading book 1, Heart of Danger. I am surely glad I didn’t wait, because this book is equally as good.

Like Kenyon’s Dark Hunter as well as Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood and others, this fun series allows readers to relate to the anchor protagonists as well as the antagonists like an ongoing TV soap/weekly series.

Everything starts at a funeral. After years of caring for her father with Alzheimer's, the disease finally won the battle and Elle is burying him. Among those present a good surprise: Nick Ross. She had not seen him for at least five years and there he was, handsome and strong, supporting her.
Elle was born into a good family. Despite having lost her mother very early, his father, Judge Thomason, was a man well liked and possessions. She always had everything she wanted. At age seven she found a

Totally forgot about this series! I Dream of Danger came out in 2013 and to be honest I was ok reading it much later because it was not amazing at all.


I totally forgot about Lisa Marie Rice's Ghost Ops series. I Dream of Danger is the second book and came out in 2013 and it was just as weird and strange as the first book Heart of Danger. I think this series is meant to be futuristic but if it is it's not written very well in a futuristic sense. Other than that Elle has a special ability being
I really liked how this one started, liked the connection between Elle and Nick, but hated how things changed. The fast forward in time seemed abrupt. I know it needed to be done to be set in the world of Haven, but everything seemed so different and didn't mesh well with the start.

I find it odd that these super soldiers end up with these super smart/brainy type women, not sure that I can buy into that, especially as it seems like it was foreshadowed who John would end up with.

Really torn about how to rate this. The set up for the story was reallllly slow! It was nearly halfway through the book before I felt like the main story was really beginning. Once there was a connection between the main characters again, I enjoyed the story more. I thought the ending was quite rushed and really wanted more at the end for the hero and heroine. I am intrigued by this world, but this book was a little disappointing. I liked Nick and Elle and really wanted more for them. So overall ...more

2.5 🌟 okay so I found the first book in the series to mediocre, awkward and nothing to write home about. Yet there was just enough there that made me want to continue the series. The second book was just as mediocre as the first hahaha and for some reason I am going to go start the third. This series is ridiculous but I'm not giving up on it lol

Everybody on our forum Les Romantiques know that I love Lisa Marie Rice since I read Woman on the run in 2010. Now, I follow all her news and I read all her books, even in English.
I dream of danger is the second volume of her new trilogy called Ghost Ops. The first one, Heart of danger, was published last year and the last volume will be published next year. It seems a long way for me!

“Wow!!” That’s the word that came to my mind after I finished this book. But its more like a feeling of awe. Now I can breathe again.

“I dream of danger” is the upcoming book of Lisa Marie Rice and it’s the second in the “The Ghosts Ops” series. The book is to be released next July 2nd.

I have never read a book from Lisa Marie Rice, so why start now with a second book of a series that I never knew about. That’s simple I love to read and a friend of mine who loves Rice’s books is set to bring them

I absolutely love Lisa Marie Rice and find that she has some of the most addictive romantic suspense novels out there. I reread one of her older titles at least once a year because I just love the connection that she has between her characters and how that plays out for the reader. I was very excited going in to I Dream of Danger and was not disappointed. This is book two in the Ghost Ops series and even though I didn’t read book one I felt the storyline was very easy to catch up on. The only th ...more

I was hoping to like this book more than the first one, but instead I found that I didn't enjoy it nearly as much. It was just OK for me. The one thing that I did like about the book was that Nick and Elle's story isn't told through flashbacks. Instead, it starts 10 years in the past. We get to see how they met and how they ended up getting torn apart from each other. I liked the linear aspect of the story instead of getting their back story in pieces.

Nick and Elle were OK. I thought that they

I hate to say this, but I was hugely disappointed in this one by Lisa Marie Rice. Rice has been one of my favorite authors for when I need a sexy fix that includes super alpha heroes and brainy heroines. While this title had both, they were not allowed to shine through. So much of the book was focused on the bad guy, and the experiments that there was very little focus on the romance. I found the beginning to be very promising, but it seems like Rice crammed all of the romance there and left it ...more
