The story REALLY has potential, Daniel is great and where it all went... Definite potential.

But the heroine...

I don't think there was a single thing said here that she didn't somehow misinterpret, or say the wrong thing at the wrong time, or basically act so absolutely clueless, it's unbelievable she should be 19, and have such a lack of common sense.

If she actually acted her age, I would have probably finished this book, but after I decided to give it one more shot I got to this sce

I'd like to offer you my sincerest gratitude for requesting me to review Dangerous to Know & Love. Even without you offering me the ARC I would have read it anyway because I loved The Education of Sebastian and The Education of Caroline. I was so hopeful that

I was sooo looking forward to reading this book, having been a mahoosive fan and advocate for Jane's Education series. And then I saw that a couple of people had marked this as DNF, and I got a bit worried.

I needn't have worried. It's totally true that no two people read the same book. I LOVED this!!!

You have to walk a mile in another mans shoes before you judge him.
This story was wonderful, beautiful and inspiring. It had a bit of a rocky start, the heroine annoyed me at first, and it seemed really long, but I am so glad I stuck it out. I ended up absolutely loving it!

Daniel Colton is making a change, taking a risk. He is a nineteen year old guy with tattoos and piercings. He rides a Harley, he’s a ladies man, and he is starting college. Daniel’s parents died a few years ago

"He didn't care what people thought about the way he looked. He knew that his tats, his piercings, the way he dressed, gave people a giant f*ck off message, and that suited him just fine. That sh*t was deliberate."

Daniel Colton is moody as hell, good looking, smart, rides a Harley and lives with his brother Zef who sells drugs. He has had a tragic life losing his parents 2 years ago and having to be raised by his brother, who has no idea what he's doing.

He has a secret... a BIG secret. Not many

I absolutely loved this book and the concept. There are so many fantastic reviews for this book, as so many of my friends have already read and enjoyed it, so I will be brief.

Daniel Colton, be still my beating heart, is rough around the edges. He is the tattooed and pierced bad boy I love, but he is so much more than that, too. Unfortunately, many people never see the real Daniel as they are too wrapped up in rumors regarding his brother or assumptions based on his appearance

“Everything has changed since I met you. I thought I knew who I was, what I was, but being with you, I’ve learned about the kind of man I want to be.”

This is my first book from Jane Harvey-Berrick and I can definitely say that I truly enjoy her writing style. With that said, I would have loved this book to be a winner for me, but sadly the heroine totally struck my nerves one too many times.

Dear Jane,

You are one talented writer. Much like your Education of… series, I fell in love. I fell in love with the characters and I especially fell in love with the story. Don’t ever stop sharing your stories because the world, and me, would seriously be sad.

For fucks sake!! For me personally, 5 stars wasn't enough. I devoured this story, what the message was, the characters. I loved Daniel Colton. Lis, well she was annoyingly judgmental and shy, but as the book progressed I think she was learning a lot of valuable lessons.

Once again Jane Harvey Berrick has wrote a book that has touched something inside of me and had me comparing with so many of my own life experiences. This book's main theme was about stereo-typing and how people are quick to judge a person by how they look on the outside. Instead of taking the time to get to know them and learn what is on the inside, we are quick to jump to conclusions and then we never get to learn about the

Daniel Colton makes for a most interesting read. He’s inked, pierced and his fists have about as much of a reputation as his love life. Mr. Tall, Dark & Deliciously Dangerous drives around on a Harley and with all his gorgeousness along with that leather, what girl can resist? His reputation is further tarnished by sharing a house with his drug dealing, partying hard, older brother, Zef. He’s certainly got the bad boy vibe going for him.

I'm at 38% and I do like the premise but am just not quite connecting to the story at the moment. I'm shelving it for now until a later date... if I pick it back up, I'll write a review for it then.

First let me just say that if you have not read The Education of Caroline and The Education of Sebastian drop everything you're doing and read it. Jane Harvey-Berrick is an immensely talented author that weaves a story so flawlessly beautiful, it's impossible to put down.

Having read those two books and absolutely adoring them, I couldn't wait to delve into her new NA novel.

Having said that, it really pains me to do this, but this was a DNF for me at 20%.

I really think that this will be the case

I really loved this story. This was something different from the others. This wasn't that typical love story when everybody's haunted from their past. Or have lots of secrets that's not revealed until the very end.

Wow, what a fucking amazing book!!! I have no words to do this book justice right now. My mind is in a fog, mostly of lust and crazy emotions from this journey I was taken on with Daniel and Lis. This book ROCKED the shit out of what I'd expected. So not what I thought this book would be. It was SO MUCH MORE! I need to sleep on it though before I attempt my review, otherwise I'll sound like a freakin' moron.

In her economics class, she will have to partner up with another student to work on a project. When she is told that her partner is Daniel Colton, she can't believe she is going to partners with him.

When I found out that Jane Harvey-Berrick was writing a new book I was so excited. I totally fell in love with her The Education of... series. Jane is a wonderful writer and I have now enjoyed three incredible books by her.

Very much like in TEoS, Jane has created some truly interesting and memorable character. I really believe that Daniel Colton could give Sebastian a run for his money. Daniel is right up there with the great book boyfriends, for me. He's a hot, tattooed, slightly arrogant, se

I originally put this book on hiatus a while back as I wasn't really excited by the sample however, I am totally obsessed with Jane Harvey-Berrick's book: Lifers, so I returned to give this story another go!

Damn I'm so glad I gave this book another go! The irony is that this story highlighted much around the quick and unfair judgements and conclusions people can make without really knowing or understanding other people and situations. This was what I shamefully did when I first picked up this

I expected the typical formula for a college themed good girl meets bad boy, but DtKaL is far from the usual song & dance - this book is unlike any book I have read. One of the main topics/issues in this book is rarely talked about or addressed in our society today & I was happy to see Jane tackle it. (I am not going to say what this topic is because I don’t want to spoil it for the reader – half the fun is enjoying the ride and experiencing the story unfold!)

This is an emotional read for me. I found almost everything in a good book. I smile, flirt, blushes, crying, sad, jealous, and most of all the feeling of empathy. Daniel Colton is a strong guy, very strong. He's naughty, HOT, a champion in f***ing at his age....but, what's behind him? It's only Lissane who can see that.

It's funny, witty, and I always smile everytime I read how Daniel always have a hard on everytime he's around Lissane...

I’m very aware not to give any spoilers on this story, as per usual, and this one is easy to spoil so all I’ll say is that I loved the storyline. It was challenging and refreshing. We talk about our main characters having issues to deal with all the time; however, mostly they tend to be of the emotional variety. The male lead in this story, Daniel, had both physical and emotional ones to contend with and as a rea
