The Book Junkie Reads . . . Review of Meeting Danger (Danger, #1) . . . 
This was explosive, deceptive, intriguing, alluring, engrossing, captivating, hell I think I may need to get a dictionary. I was only supposed to read for an hour or so to get my barring with the new author(s). But I found that four hours later I was still reading. The next thing I knew I was finished and it was almost 3am.

I got some intense danger, hello danger was in the title. I am very happy to have gotten in on the beginning of this series. I can see this one going far.  The plot was developed and full of things that make you think. There was much going on with Autumn and the life she had led to the point she rescues Cam. The romance was a slow burn with deeper possibilities. I would say the romance was there but more so of the suspenseful aspects came in and drew you.

There was more in this story than you would think from the beginning. I was not the romance that kept me going. It was getting to the conclusion and picking up all the extras along the way.

Camden Taylor is a federal agent working undercover in an outlaw motorcycle club, the Wicked Disciples, investigating their heroin operation. When they kidnap a member of another club, Camden has no choice but to blow his cover in order to save the man's life.

Autumn Mason has lived with Butch Cobb, president of the Wicked Disciples, for nearly five years. Butch is terrifying—as abusive as he is powerful—and there is no escaping him. But when Autumn witnesses Camden being beaten and held prisoner, she is forced to make a desperate decision. Will she choose to be loyal, or will she do what she knows is right?

Camden pulled his weapon from his ankle holster and moved out from behind the tree. Aiming his Glock at the dark silhouettes in front of him, he shouted, “Federal agent! Drop your weapons!”
“You’re a cop?” Beck sounded livid as he spoke from several yards away. He pulled a pistol from beneath his cut and aimed it steadily at Camden.
“You don’t want more trouble than you’re already in, Beck. Now, drop it!”
Where are the sirens? He should be hearing them by now. A drop of sweat slid down Camden’s back as the brothers ignored his warning and advanced on him.
He reached into his jacket pocket with his free hand and again pressed the button on his phone, twice this time to indicate a dire emergency. Too late, he realized that Romeo had doubled around. Camden stumbled forward as he was struck from the side. He clutched at his temple, disoriented for a second as he scrambled to keep from falling.
Romeo came at him again, this time joined by Grizzly, and they took him down to the ground. Yet another piled on top of them. Beck.
Camden’s hand was pinned beneath their weight. With no choice left, he released his hold on his gun.
“Get up!”
His heart pounded as he rose. Romeo and Grizzly grasped his arms, holding him tightly as he steeled his expression. “Backup’s on the way.”
Beck didn’t acknowledge the warning as he scooped up Camden’s pistol and stuck it in his own pocket. “Pig! Wait and see what we’re going to do to you.”

Interview with Caila Jaynes & Allyson Simonian
Do you take your character prep to heart? Do you nurture the growth of each character all the way through to the page? Do you people-watch to help with development? Or do you build upon your character during story creation?
Allyson’s the thinker, the plotter of our team, so she does the first draft. When she begins the story, it's the basics she has in mind, such as how the past has wounded the character, and what he’s seeking. Caila takes over after the first draft and fleshes out both characters and plot, filling in some places and trimming others, and sometimes moves things around for maximum effect. When she’s done, there’s a back and forth until both of us are happy with the finished product. It’s a synergistic process where we complement each other’s strengths and weaknesses, and in the end, we feel the final product reads as one voice.

Can you share you next creative project? If yes, can you give a few details?
We’re working on Book Two in the series, which will focus on Grayson, another member of the Phoenix Task Force like Camden. Grayson is a bit rougher around the edges than Camden, not as easy to love at first blush, but at heart he’s also a good guy. We can’t wait to introduce Grayson and his love interest, Claire, to readers!
