Dangerous to Know & Love by Jane Harvey-Berrick

Silence is only skin deep.

Nineteen year old Daniel Colton is the guy all the girls want to date, and the man all the guys want to be. Moody, with an explosive temper, closed off and sullen, he’s also beautiful, tatted in delicious ways, with a pierced eyebrow and spiky black hair. It’s rumoured he has piercings in other places, too. Is he really mad, bad and dangerous to know?

Daniel lives with his older brother, Zef, and their home is party central. You want drugs, a good time, liquor, no questions asked? Colton’s is the place to go.

When Daniel and good girl Lisanne Maclaine have to work together on an assignment, Lisanne finds there’s a lot more to the college’s bad boy than his reputation. He’s intelligent and funny and good company. And then she discovers his secret, why he’s so closed off to everyone, and determined to keep people at arms’ length. But being his secret-keeper is harder than she ever dreamed.

Recommended for readers 18+ due to sexual references and sex scenes, some coarse language, drug references and drug use.

♥♥♥ Daniel ♥♥♥ Le Sigh… 


Dear Jane,

You are one talented writer. Much like your Education of…series, I fell in love. I fell in love with the characters and I especially fell in love with the story. Don’t ever stop sharing your stories because the world, and me, would seriously be sad. 

Your devoted reader for life,

“I heard you. Oh, God, I heard you.” His head dropped to his chest and he blew out a shaky breath. “I love you, baby doll. So much.” 

I LOVE THIS AUTHOR. I am a HUGE fan of her Education of…series and when I saw that this was out, I was all over it. I did not hesitate, I passed go and just immersed myself in the story. If it wasn’t for work holding me back, I would’ve read this in one sitting. Yes, I kid you not. I didn’t want this to end. As soon as I finished, I just wanted to go back to page one and start it all over again. Such a wonderful and emotional ride. 

“Told you I was irresistible, baby doll,” he said, immodestly. “But I only want you.” 

Lisanne (a.k.a. Lis) thought Daniel was a prick when she first meets him. Sexy, yes, but a total jerk. From her perspective, he seemed rude and completely standoffish. Daniel has got one heck of a bad reputation at the University: Womanizer, troublemaker, full of himself, and there’s even a rumor that he’s a drug dealer. He was definitely not the type of person she should be involved with. However, when they are paired up for a class project, she learns that Daniel is keeping quite a secret. A secret that sheds a whole new light to the mystery surrounding him. 

“What does it make you feel, Lis? Because it’s all bullshit. You… me… it’s just different… 

There was nothing extraordinary about Lis that immediately caught Daniel’s eye. She’s pretty, but she probably thinks she’s too good for a guy like him. He’s got too much baggage for anyone to carry. His life and his problems are his business alone and isn’t compelled to let anyone in. But when Lis figures out his secret, he has no choice but to trust her. Slowly, Lis becomes a figure of hope to Daniel. Even after learning his secret, she doesn’t run. She’s fearless in wanting to get to know him better. She’s a game changer. 

“I won’t hurt you, baby doll. I just want to make you feel good.” 

Can I just say, right here, right now, that I absolutely LOVE it when Daniel calls Lis baby doll… total SWOON!!!! To me, this term of endearment works for this couple; it makes me love Daniel so much more. There’s just something about this story that I couldn’t get enough of. There was just the right amount of drama, angst and steam. It was a little hard to get into in the beginning, but I’m glad I stuck through it, because the rest was absolutely amazing. LOVED IT. LOVED IT. LOVED IT. I will definitely be looking out for more from this fantastic author.
