4.5 - "How did we manage to get ourselves in this position..?" Stars!

The second book in Kate SeRine’s Dark Alliance series, picks up where its predecessor left off, it’s very much full steam ahead for Will Asher’s Alliance operatives, and this time we get Jack Grayson and Maddie Blake’s’ story.

"I have never regretted anything that’s ever happened between us… My only regret is letting it all fall apart."

Jack and Maddie are both characters that appeared in the previous book, Maddie’s sister Sarah

Jack Grayson an Alliance operative whom we met in DECEIVED, the first book in the Dark Alliance series and his team are in Mexico to retrieve a USB drive. With them is former FBI agent Madeleine Blake the first female to join the ranks of the Alliance. Jack and Madeleine share a history. A very passionate history until he left breaking her heart. The sexual tension and unresolved feelings between these two sizzles. I found myself anxious to hear their story.

CONCEALED delivers an intense, high bo

Concealed by Kate SeRine
A Dark Alliance Novel #2

In this second novel in the Dark Alliance series the Temple Knights & Associates do all they can to retrieve a thumb drive with significant information related to their enemies, the Illuminati. Jack and Maddie have romantic history that will rear its head as they work together and then try to find a way forward as teammates at work and perhaps at home.

As for the story…from South America to the Midwest to the East Coast and with mention of Lond

An explosive continues to the Dark Alliance series with constant action, breathtaking moments of fatal danger, and two lovers getting yet another chance to find a way to each other's lives and hearts.
The suspense and action of the story are based on the war between Alliance and Illuminati, and the old enemies hunting down Jack Grayson with revenge in mind, and death the ultimate goal. Collateral damage is not an issue to the ruthless killers, only achieving to dispose of their target in mind.

I didn't read the first in the series and I wish I had because I will admit I was a little lost at first. Thankful I am a nerd about the Templar's and Illuminati so I wasn't completely lost and I had a good idea who everyone was and general idea what they are after. Make sure you pick up book one or you will be scratching your head many times.
This story has suspense,romance, lots of assassins, world traveling, romance and great history. from what I can tell Kate SeRine did her research.

**I received a copy of Concealed from Net Galley in exchange for a voluntary and honest review**

Concealed by Kate SeRine is the second book in her Dark Alliance series. I haven't read the first book and I'd recommend reading it prior to this book so that you aren't puzzled on the the two major groups in the book. Having said that I also have to say that I'm very glad that I watched all of the shows on the History channel about the Templar's and Illuminati because it helped so much knowing the ba

Reveived an ARC from Netgally in exchance for an honest review


First I have to say that this is the first book that I read by this author. The book itself was really good, but I will recommend that you read the first in the series to begin with, because it is a bit confusing otherwise to distinguish the different main character groups. The book also reminded me a bit off Dan Brown, with his Da vinci code and bernini mysterie. I know its not the same but a bit of the theme overlap with The illumin

Great read! I loved Maddie and Jack's story but since I hadn't read book 1 I felt there were so many things that I probably missed that happened in book 1 that would have made me appreciate the little things more in this story. Does that upset me? No way- it has me heading to Amazon to buy book 1. This book was so intriguing with the history of the Templar Knights and Illuminati you can't help be drawn in to the drama and hold your breath for the action.

This is the kind of book that I could very easily see as a movie. I defiantly had a movie playing in my head as I was reading it. Even parts where I want to cover my eyes.
Jack and Maddie have a past. Jack thinks the only way of keeping her safe, is to keep his distance from her. But he also feels nobody is able to cover her backside better than him. Poor Maddie, one minute Jack is hot to be with her the next can't get away quick enough.
They have so many people after them. that truly one could b

Did I miss a book?

This book is yet another example of why Kate SeRine is at the top of my auto buy list. But, I felt as if I missed a book. The history between Will and Claire is referenced as if it was covered in a previous book. It's been 9 months since reading Deceived was it in there??? Regardless it is another outstanding can't put it down read.

This was not what I thought it would be. It's like the DaVinci Code meets Divergent (maybe?).

There's a love story, but also two groups vying for power or is one trying to gain control while the other is trying to preserve anonymity? I don't honestly know for sure. This lack of clarity made the story less enjoyable for me. Also, there were a fair amount of moving parts and characters to keep track of. It's worth noting that the author didn't hold back when it came to killing folks off. This Is al

Great mix of action, adventure, romance and conspiracy theory! I haven't read the previous books in this series but that wasn't a huge roadblock. Enough of the back-history was given that I wasn't lost.

Jack and his team after a USB which apparently contains a lot of sensitive and useful information.
With him his Maddie Blake, former lover and now first ever female initiate! There are plots, sub plots and sexual tension galore, all held together by very strong, identifiable and fully formed cha

concealed is the second book in kate serine's dark alliance series, and even though i eventually figured things out, it's one of those books that should be read after book one in the series. this is like an episode of alias, with the dark alliance serving as the secret government agency, in this case they are connected to the knights templar and are a global organization, and the illuminati are the sd-6 like bad guys.

this story also picks up a lot of threads covered in the first book, so it was

I've enjoyed Kate SeRine's "Dark Alliance" series. It has the danger, suspense, mystery, and romance I am looking for in this type of book.

I'm not a huge fan of second (or in this case third) chance romances but I loved Jack and Maddie. Luckily there were not a bunch of flashbacks to their earlier relationships, just some conversations about what went down, which was perfect. I liked that Maddie was tough enough to take care of herself. She and Jack were a team who relied on each other. They wan

Concealed by Kate SeRine have Jack and Maddie globetrotting over the world to fulfill their mission for the Temple Knights & Associates. This fast-paced action packed second novel in the Dark Alliance Series, gives us two capable individuals who have a romantic history. Thrown together again in their life and death work has a way of helping a person see what is important. Maybe it is because second chance stories are a favorite of mine but I found this to be a gem of a story.
