Manview: Healing Danger (Fortis Security #1) by Maddie Wade

Welcome to another Manview. For those of you who are new to Manviews, these are reviews of romance novels specifically from a man's perspective, the reader today is my very own Steve. You can find previous Manviews here.

We are going to have a few more Manviews in the next few weeks as Steve and I are going on a trip to the UK and meeting some of our favorite authors there. He's reading a bunch of books in preparation of catching up with them. This is the first one.

Healing Danger by Maddie Wade blurb

ManviewWhat was your overall opinion of the book?

I really enjoyed it. I loved how the story developed and while the hero and heroine had some challenges, they quickly got over them without too much drama. I also loved the story revolving around Fortis, a security company and the people they employed.

Was there anything you particularly liked about the book?

Yes, quite a few things. I loved how Lauren and her half-brother found each other in adulthood and really developed a bond for each other, one that ended up saving both their lives at various points in the book. I also loved the introduction of each character and their roles and am now prepared and excited I am to read the rest of the books in the series. The Epilogue was the longest one I have ever read, but it did a great job of setting up what I know will be several awesome sequels!

Was there anything you did not like about the book?

There was very little I did not like about the book. I felt (and understand it is the author’s debut novel) that at the beginning the pace was a bit fast and felt another few sentences here and there to explain things to further develop the scene or character would have been beneficial. But as far as the story goes and the characters go, I really liked pretty much everything!

What did you think of the paranormal element in the story?

I was quite comfortable with it and liked how it helps develop some interesting subplots and strengthened the overall storyline. In fact, it was quite necessary for the main plot to develop and resolve. I usually hate anything resembling sci-fi, paranormal, witchcraft, or any of that non-real stuff, but the ability of some people to envision the future and others such as Lauren to progress physical healing of wounds and injuries was really quite believable and nicely interwoven with the rest of the story.

What did you think of Dane and Lauren?

I liked both of them a lot. Dane irritated me a few times trying to be over-protective to the point of being stupid about it. Almost too much pride, too much a need to be responsible and taking it on himself. I really liked that Lauren was willing to take risks and how comfortable she became with Dane. And I always enjoy a heroine who gives herself with confidence in a wanton, sexual frenzy to the right guy and yes, my Lauren was that type of woman!

Any other thoughts on the book?

It was just a lovely and enjoyable read. I liked the business element and character interplay and look forward to finding out more about the secondary characters when they become main characters in the future books in the series.

What is your next read?
