I loved this story so much! After reading the first book this is definitely my next favorite and now I can't believe this series has come to an end! I'm going to miss all the characters! I have to say that I was so excited to read Falling For Danger.


This is Kate and Matt's story.They were best friends who soon became a couple. But when Matt died, Kate was lost in the beginning... Until the moment she decides that she wants to know the truth ab

To say I'm conflicted about this book is an understatement. On the one hand, this whole series, Capital Confessions, has been one of my favorite series this year. It's fun, light, low-drama with a healthy dose of steam that I like in my books, and it has great characters that I can't help but root for. Which brings me to my conundrum. While I liked this one overall, it feels very disconnected to the other books in the series as a whole.

For the most part, Falling For Danger is romantic

Since I enjoyed so much the other books in the series I have been anxiously awaiting this third and final installment. Reading a short snippet of this book at the end of the second installment I knew this one will be more action packed, more intense and more suspenseful than the other books in the series.

“Falling for Danger” fallows the third, youngest Reynolds sister, Kate. From the previous books in the series we know Kate is still grieving after Matt, her childhood boyfriend and

It's no secret how much I enjoy Chanel Cleeton's Capital Confessions. Set against the backdrop of Washington D.C's political scene, each novel is a titillating blend of intrigue, angst and delicious scandal.

Each sister's personality brings a new direction to proceedings. First we had Jackie; Ambitious, feisty go-getter with a

Since the very first book, this is what it's all been leading up to; the dramatic conclusion to the Capital Confessions series and boy was is a doozy. I had some ideas about where it may all lead and some I was correct on while some caught me completely unawares.

Romance and mystery come together in this story to make an intriguing, sweet book that will suck you in and hold you captive until the very end.

Kate Reynolds lost her fiance four years ago when his military unit was hit, and has never been the same since. Not because she is grieving his loss, but because she knows that there is something deeper than a mission gone wrong going on, and that her father is apart of it. She has dedicated her life since then to finding out the answers to what

Ahhh....the Capital Confession Series comes to an end and it's such a bittersweet feeling to say goodbye to this series after I've been so wrapped up with the scandals, gossips, politics, family drama, romance, and unexpected surprises. In the third and final book, Falling for Danger, Chanel Cleeton reunites her readers with one final thrilling, surprising, and romantic suspense that will have readers on the edge of their seats.

I have thoroughly enjoyed the Capital Confessions and have been waiting with much anticipation for final book. With the epic blurb at the end of book two, Playing With Trouble, I am expecting an explosive ending.

Did I get it? Well, that all depends on your version of epic and exploding. Emotionally, it’s one hell of a rollercoaster ride. The majority of Falling For Danger we are being pulled through the ringer. We even get some really nice time with the sisters as a collective.

"I knew this had danger written all over it. Knew there was something wild in him that hadn't been there before."

Right from the start, the Capital Confessions series got me hooked onto each of the Reynolds sisters' stories but this one is hands down my ABSOLUTE favorite! The irony was when I reading the entire series previously, Kate Reynolds was my least favorite sister and I wasn't even sure if my love for the series will continue up to the very end when it came to her stor

Major disappointment in the last installment of an otherwise topnotch series for me. I really can't figure out why the author took this one in the direction she chose. It was completely off-balance with the other two. I still loved the characters and the interaction between the three sisters. However, the focus seemed to be on the suspense and the plot was full of holes that never got plugged. Too much waffling in the storyline and I found too much unrealistically written. Although there were in ...more

This was a fantastic read. The story was interesting. The story is about a young woman named Kate Reynolds, and her relationship with Matthew Ryan. They were best friends who fell in love. They been together since high school and got engaged. Then, Matt goes to the Army and is killed due to an ambush. Kate never moved on from his death, until he comes back into her life 4 years later. This is the continuation of their love story.

The characters are great. First, the heroine Ka

Finally Kate's story and the finale of Capital Confessions.  I have to admit that Kate did not win me over in the first two books, so I wasn't sure how her story was going to be.  I did like her in the end, but I didn't love her as much as Blair or even Jackie.

Kate's angry and sad after the death of her fiance, but she knows that her father had something to do with it.  Now getting information about the

This has to be my least favourite of the series because of the whole conspiracy/suspense angle it took and the h/H having to basically live their lives on the run forever (that doesn't constitute a happy ending for me). The h/H were involved since the heroine was 16 and were engaged to be married when the news came that the hero's unit was ambushed and he died. The heroine suspected the hero was setup and her dad and his dad were involved, so she has spent the past four years working t

I have been waiting for Kate’s story since the first book, and it was worth all the wait. Although I was giddy to have received an advance copy of it. Nevertheless, Kate Reynolds had just graduated from college and was out on her own. Being a junior political analyst at the CIA was one step closer in uncovering answers about the night that has been bothering her for four years – the night that she lost her fiancé Matt on a Special Forces mission in Afghanistan. Her life was constantly on hold be

I totally broke one of my rules and read a series out of order. (Hangs head in shame.) This series has been tempting me for months and a well-written email from the publisher publicist convinced me that I should read this book this weekend.
I'm so glad that I did. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I'm going to run over to Amazon right now and purchase the previous 2 books in the series.

This book suddenly dealt with what was supposed to be pretty serious/heavy stuff. I really, really hated that it suddenly felt very forced and un-organic to the whole story (and the past two books).

I was really looking forward to reading Falling for Danger after reading the snippet at the end of Playing with Trouble. The heroine’s supposedly dead fiancé turns out to be alive! And he’s back in her life! How could I NOT read it after finding that out? But the romance didn’t quite pan out the way I expected it to. While I enjoyed Falling for Danger, it wasn’t quite the epic conclusion to the series I was hoping for.

I loved the first Capital Confessions and I wanted to know the Reynolds sisters once the truth came out. I didn’t get a chance to read Blair’s story but I wasn’t going to miss the baby of the group, Kate’s story.

I am so sad now that I've finished this series. From the first page of Falling for Danger I was hooked. No lie. The prologue had me feeling butterflies and it just made me all that more anxious to get to the story and oh what a good story it was. I honestly couldn't put the book down. It was sexy and intense and had me guessing right up until the end.

Falling for Danger follows Kate Reynolds, the most rebellious of the three sisters who are the stars of the trilogy. Like Jackie, Kate loves the world of politics, which is one of the reasons she recently joined the CIA as an analyst. The other is that, even after 3 years, she still can't accept her boyfriend's mysterious death during a mission in Afganistan. What Kate doesn't expect is that her digging resilts in her house being broken into on her birthday night, something which will completely ...more
