with Christ in prison changes the course of her life A Dangerous Stage is the second page turning installment of the Protection for Hire series featuring Tessa Lancaster, professional bodyguard and Charlies Britton, southern gentleman and high powered attorney While the book is a stand alone title, Tess and Charles s story is much richer if you read book one Protection for Hire first The fast paced scenes and sharp dialogue kept me turning the pages and when I was forced to put it down I anticipated picking it up again The book begins in high gear, with Tess and a client of the run from the client s abusive ex boyfriend Tess is just as quick at thinking on her feet as she is at sparing with the bad guys The heart pounding chase ends with Tessa asking a favor of her family, who she s had a very tentative relationship with since become a Christian and severing ties with the family run yukuza.Family isn t the only part of her past Tessa must face A case throws her together with the man who extended her jail sentence the man who she thought she might be falling in love with But a year after finding out about Charles Britton s betrayal, Tess is still deeply angry and hurt As the two are entangled together in case that involves keeping a teenager alive, they must confront their painful past.The case is very intriguing George a contestant on a reality singing show withtroubles than possibly being voted off when his teenage daughter computer whiz Hannah hacks her way into the middle of a gambling syndicate betting on the show With an unknown number of the show s producers involved, Tess and her charges must stay on the show to stay alive.The spiritual plot is subtle yet distinct as Tess s rough edges continue to be softened as she grows in Christ Charles s own faith is stretched as he must find the courage to articulate his beliefs and then weigh the cost of sharing Christ with his coworkers and friends.The secondary characters including Vivian, Charles s wise fusion cooking Southern belle Mama, add depth to the story I was excited to see Uncle Teuro make another appearance He and Tessa come to a very sweet understanding.The book alternates between spicy action, serious spiritual reflection, complicated romance, exasperating family drama, and laugh out loud levity The book is light on the romance and heavy on action but after reading other reviews I ll add a disclaimer that a couple of scenes containthan hand holding Though it didn t seem inappropriate to me Nor did the other scene a few people have complained about Tang s own Japanese heritage lends authenticity to the book and is reflected in the tasty dishes mentioned I was hungry after reading this book I gave the book four stars because the case seemed to peeter out at the end I had to go back and read who a few of the bad guys were I wish this had been fleshed out a bit.Fans of Robert B Parker s Spenser and Sunny Randall books, will love the Protection for Hire series.Tess s estranged father makes a cameo through a shadowy email This plot line is unresolved by book s end and left me hoping for another title in the series Another incredible ride from Camy Tang Just when I

in Camy Tang s Protection for Hire series, Tessa gets caught up in the web of lies surrounding a shady singing competition Hired by one of the contestants, she works with Charles Britton the lawyer who sent her to prison to discover the dark figures manipulating the contest from behind the scenesTessa s abilities will be tested like never before as she s forced to balance the safety of her client s family and her deepening relationship with Charles In the midst of the chaos, she holds on to her faith to keep her safe and bring down the shadowy organization My thoughts on this are pretty much as conflicted as its predecessor.The characterization, story, romance, cultural elements are all pretty poorly done, except that the line running through re these character s faith not only rang true but was personally convicting ike I identified so much with the things Tessa and Charles were struggling with re each of their personal faith.ANYWAY, I will try to come back and write a proper review.edited to fix its to proper form I like Tessa Life is a mess, and she tries to make the best of it.

is so strong and put together but we also get to see her softer side, the side that can be injured Brought together by a mutual client, Tessa and Charles are forced to interact and the sparks fly Yay

time I can t follow the story line worth a hoot However, I can say that the writing was great Words painted pictures on the mind s eye and were always pretty clear about what I was seeing When Gramps gave up the ghost well I admit I was a bit sad to see that car of a character bite the exhaust pipe Point of my telling you that There is some fun situational humor mixed into the book which definitely gives it a rare, unique flavor Things I would have likedof A bitromance And a stronger story line about Tessa s dad But I have a feeling the latter might be coming in another title and there was plenty going on in Tessa emotionally to be adding anything else Fun title Would definitely recommend that you read the first Protection for Hire before picking up this one Both are fun, light and snappy good combinations for a contemporary novel This review is my honest opinion Thanks to the publishers for my copy to review A Dangerous Stage
