“Don’t you want this Sophie? Don't you want me to touch you? To make love to you, over and over again?” his lips make a trail from my neck to my shoulder. “Isn't it enough?”

David Preston came into Sophie's life and changed it in ways she could never have anticipated. Now the intensely sexy, exquisitely beautiful man is hers, or is he really?

Argh! With that ending, how can I write this review properly when all I want to do right now is dive into the next book!

In short, this second installment was better than the first one. Sometimes stupid cheesy drama simply hits the spot for me, and in this case, it really did! I enjoyed the drama in this story a lot despite both David and Sophie’s apparent overreactions. In this book, Sophie acted a bit childish at times, but hey, she's eighteen! Well, I can make an exception for her since David
This series continues to move along at a blinding speed, but there are a few more tidbits provided about the characters that keeps me tuned in. I actually wish these two would quit having sex and just talk! They are still virtually strangers, even married, and the only thing that doesn't seem to be a secret between the two is the sexual chemistry they have together.

There are some pretty big issues brewing in this serial, but it was hard for me to feel much emotion, one way or the other, because

I have a feeling this is going to be a serial. This was also quite short, I was left wanting to know what would happen next. A little more light was shed on why David did the things he did in Awakening.

I think I'd prefer it, if this was a complete book. I need to know more about David! This novella wasn't bad, but it wasn't great, it was over in the blink of an eye, which is a bit frustrating.

Again, a very quick read that sucked me in only to finish abruptly. I'm turning, turning then it's OVER so fast!

The 2nd instalment in this series was better than the first. It captured me from the first page and by the last I was weeping for Sophie. Although she's eighteen, she comes across as mature for her age, but that I'm sure, has everything to do with her circumstances growing up.

Sophie finally develops a backbone when it really counts but I couldn't help empathizing with what she went thr

"You’re an aphrodisiac.” He murmurs in my ear, his voice husky. “I want you every minute,”

Part two of The Dangerous Man series and we pick up exactly where we left off at the end of Awakening. Super rich David Preston has married innocent little Sophie and is now whisking her off to his penthouse in Seattle and a life of luxury beyond her wildest dreams.

I got a really strong feeling when I was reading Awakening that all was not as it seemed and my fears appear to be grounded after reading Re

“Rebellion” was an absolute hott and exciting read. It picks up right where Awakening left off. David and Sophie are married and Sophie is definitely in marital bliss until she realizes that she doesn’t get to spend as much time with David as she would like. A woman by the name of Carole Banks seems to pop up in a few conversations Sophie hears but she has no idea who Carole is. Is David trying to keep Sophie as a secret? Sophie soon realizes that things between her and David may never be the wa ...more

And the plot thickens.

In this sequel to A Dangerous Man, there were answers but there were also more questions towards the end. We get to see more of David's soft side towards Sophie but you just know that he's a man covered in layers and layers of secrets. And of course, the drama ensues. I like how Sophie is slowly coming into her own in this one and actually having the wits and guts to question things happening around her.

But what I loved most about it was that despite its shortness and a c

Steamy, compelling and frustrating!

In book 1 we met Sophie who has had quite a tragic life. Her mother died during child birth and she has never known her father. Her very strict and old fashioned aunt raised her but even she passed away recently. Sophie is struggling with financial problems and her job at the local town gift shop looks uncertain so she is considering leaving and trying to set up life elsewhere.

To say that Sophie and David have a normal relationship is really not saying much they meet, get married and this all happens within a three day time span (This is not a spoiler as it happened in book one.) David likes to make a lot of hot promises and I have to say I'm really liking that, "I'm going to make love to you until your voice is hoarse from screaming my name." You know then there were times that David I thought was kind of an a** not even a damn honeymoon and the girl only asks a ques ...more

Just like the first, this was a very quick and thoroughly enjoyable read. I love the fact that with this series we get epic little by little. It builds the story and even with the small novel you get a ton of storyline.

This book was quite short but we got to know David and a little more. His reasons for the marriage, and his true feelings toward Sophie.

Life was bliss for a short period. Then, reality settled in. Sophie is slowly opening her eyes to what her life may turn out to be. But at the sa

Received this book for an honest review.

David and Sophie pick up after the wedding and on the way to his/their home in Seattle. Sophie had doubts as would anyone that marries after knowing someone for roughly 24-48 hours. After arriving in Seattle David goes about his life as if he is still single with no thought or care as to what a "married" life with a partner should be like. He is distant and doesn't see the needs or wants that Sophie desires. Sophie is naïve and thinking that she found her

I would like to give a HUGE thanks to Serena for sending me this book in the first place for review! She is soooooooooo awesome! I was so excited when she first approached me to review "Awakening" and she said she would make sure that I got the second also!

Soo much author love going on right now!


This book will certainly enthral you.

It picks up straight where Awakening finished. Sophie is now married, she will go by the name of Mrs. Preston. Both her and David are on their way to Seattle to

I had the privilege to be given an ARC of this story in exchange for an honest review. There were parts of the book that I enjoyed seeing her so happy and him treating her right but there are more times in the book that he does not treat her good. I did not like the whole NDA thing, and how he rarely wanted to spend time with her. I enjoyed there story when they were in Florence, it felt like they were getting closer.

So I'm not going to give you a blow by blow of what this story is about you can read the jacket to get that. What I always want to know when I read a review is how did it make the reader feel? Were you able to connect with the characters? Were you invested enough to care if they made one decision over another or maybe you wanted to jump in the story line and kick someones ass for screwing with your favorite character? Did you remember the "feeling" and think about the characters after the story ...more

Wow, this was so much more than the first book. We got to know both Sophie & David better. With them now married, Sophie comes to realise that what she knows about him isn't much. You are going to have questions especially after only knowing someone for 3 days. Sophie starts to question things, but David distracts her with the love making.

David has married Sophie for reasons we are yet to find out all about. I think deep down David has fallen in love with Sophie, but he is yet to admit to this.

5 stars!!

I am always skeptical of short story series since they tend to feel rushed. But with a Dangerous Man series by Serena Grey it's anything but. Book 1 Awakening was amazing but book 2 Rebellion is... Indescribable, I had so many emotions when reading it that I felt like I was on a constant roller coaster.

Sophie in book one seemed very meek and submissive towards David and I was worried because of her age that he would steam roll her. Which he tried to but sweet Sophie is proving to have

The book leaves us with more questions than answers. Sophie & David are now married & come back to his penthouse in Seattle. Sophie's expectations of spending time alone with David are naive - he is a billionaire & really very busy. But she does eventually get the billionaire's wife treatment - a personal shopper, hair, makeup, the works. But someone lets it slip that there is a NDA & no one is supposed to talk about Sophie which is confusing. Sophie knew going into this marriage that there was ...more

I was given the ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review, so thank you Serena!
Now, with the first book - Awakening - I said it was kind of like "50 Fifty Shades of Grey" in the sexual chemistry aspect. I also said it was quite annoying how David and Sophie's relationship quickly developed; but now, I'm getting the sense that it's kind of like "Romeo and Juliet" since they too met and fell in love in a few short hours. It's kind of cute in that way...
Anyways, I noticed some grammar error

This book was great!!! It begins right were the first one ended... It was a little bit longer than part one and I really liked that... In Rebellion we get to find out a little bit more about David and Sophie but don't expect to have all the answers to your questions because you won't have any! You will actually have more by the end of the book. The mystery about David continues, he is pretty harsh and cold sometimes, and then he is kind of cute. He is defi

Awakening and Rebellion are books 1 and 2 in the Dangerous Man series by Serena Grey. This is a gripping and interesting series that had me intrigued one minute and confused the next. I was offered ARCs of these novellas in exchange for an honest review.

The whirlwind relationship that is Sophie and David is both riveting and perplexing. David’s strong alpha male persona is mysterious and sexy, and a sharp contrast to Sophie’s introverted nature. However, literally from the moment their eyes meet

I have received an ARC from the lovely author of this book in exchange for an honest opinion, so here it is..

I'm thinking 2 and 1/2 stars..

I think serving this beautiful story in small portions is ruining the good effect it has on its reader..

I mean, it keeps you wanting more and doesn't give you that much in the story except to admire the hotness that is David Preston and his prowess!

It still has the feel of a "chapter" instead of even a novella.. and even though I'm a HUGE fan of mysteries, t

First of all I have to say I loved the way but two picked up right where book one left off. First I have to say Sophie and David have an extremely complicated relationship sometimes you just don't know where he's coming from with the things he says and does is it just about sex or could he possibly care about her, I really can't wait to find more out about his character he's very mysterious and sometimes almost dark I like to think that somewhat he does care about Sophie he just doesn't know how ...more

Obviously this is the second book in the series, hence the #2 in the title. If you haven't read the first, Awakening (A Dangerous Man, #1), you need to, this is NOT a stand alone book.

I'd probably give this book 4 1/2 stars, because I just can't seem to get past one burning question... Why did they have to get married? It's just driving me nuts. Which is why I will continue reading this addicting series. I need to know more to piece it all together. There's something up with David, I know there

I read a Serena Grey update on Goodreads last night, where she indicated that she hit the "publish" button. That caused me to check Amazon compulsively, hoping the book would appear and I would not have to wait until today. Lo and behold, my compulsive checking paid off and there it was and of course, I immediately started to read it.

I loved it!! There are moments when I think David is cold and aloof but they melt away when he looks at Sophie or touches her or speaks of his desire for her. I lo

The story of Sophie and David continues in the second installment of A Dangerous Man. Sophie had been swept up in David's lavish lifestyle in a matter of days. She feels out of place and is beginning to question David's motives for marrying her. Sophie is quite naive and gets caught up in all that is David Preston. David thrives on control and doesn't give Sophie the answers she seeks. For me Sophie needed to speak up more, demand answers from David as its obvious he's hiding things. David kept ...more
