ABOUT THE BOOK!
by Karen Rock
(Dallas After Dark)
Publication date: December 18th 2018
Genres: Adult, Romance, Suspense
DESIRE WITH NO LIMITS
Erica Keeley has always been willing to break the rules to catch a criminal, until her unorthodox tactics get her booted from the CIA and betrayed by the man she trusted. Now, gone rogue to stop a terrorist group, she’s working undercover at Dallas’s top male strip and burlesque club, dancing alongside sexy, sculpted men. Not that any of her co-workers give her the adrenaline rush she got from her former life. Erica hits the jackpot when she overhears her targets discussing a homegrown terrorist plot. But her last shot at redemption means getting up close and personal with her traitorous ex.
Control is what CIA officer Ryan Arnell values above all things. Yet he was irresistibly drawn to Erica’s impulsive, uninhibited nature in the field—and in bed—until her bull-headed tactics risked the agency’s mission. Teaming up to stop a deadly attack, he’s falling again for this spontaneous, high-octane woman. And with Erica’s ties to the terrorists proving closer than either of them expected, the riskiest mission of all might be this second chance at love . . .

Today, Karen Rock is going to give us the scoop on which actors she thinks would best portray the characters in Reckless Deceptions if the book were to be made into a movie!
I would LIVE for a Gal Gadot and Chris Pine reunion since I’ve watched WONDER WOMAN five times and counting. What’s more, I think these two would be absolutely perfect for RECKLESS DECEPTIONS’s heroine and heroine... although Gal would have to die her hair red...which of course she’d pull off!
Gal would be perfect to play the part of rogue, ex-CIA agent Erica Keely. Gal is beautiful, like Erica, as she was crowned Miss Israel when she turned 18. She’s also a strong woman who can fight just as hard as a man when needed, like Erica. Gal’s experience serving for two years in the Israeli Army will make the fight scenes were Erica goes head to head with terrorists authentic. We’ll believe she’s an experienced and ruthless former intelligence agent.
Additionally, like Erica, Gal speaks multiple languages which will help make the scenes where Erica interrogates terrorists seem real. Gal’s athleticism will help her perform Aerial Silks at Dallas After Dark, Erica’s cover to help her get close to the men she suspects are conspiring to pull off the deadliest, mass casualty terrorist attack on U.S. soil since 911. Finally, Gal’s work in the Fast and Furious franchise means she can handle the high-speed car chase scenes in RECKLESS DECEPTIONS. Erica Keely doesn’t need superpowers to be one badass kick-butt heroine and Gal Gadot is the best woman for the role!
Chris Pine is one of those leading men that can easily switch from action-hero to romantic leading man, which is exactly the kind of actor I’d want to play my tough, by-the-books CIA agent Ryan Arnell. Ryan’s got a lot on his plate when he returns from Syria to his hometown- Dallas- to say his goodbyes to his terminally ill, estranged father. He’s been told his ex, Erica Keely, has a tip on a possible terrorist plot and he has no choice but to work with her to thwart the impending attack, dredging up old emotions he’d rather not face. Ryan grew up with a critical father who drilled in him that showing emotions, even love, were signs of weakness and shameful. Because of this, Ryan has a hard time opening up and sharing his feelings except when it comes to Erica who somehow sees right through him and gets to him like no other woman. Erica helps Ryan to come to terms with losing a parent who never showed him love and helps him make a profound, unexpected and life-changing connection with his father before it’s too late. Chris Pine can show this range of emotion, the pathos of losing a parent who may or may not have loved you, of reconnecting with an ex who may or may break your heart again, and a second chance to stop a terrorist group who slipped through his fingers before with deadly results- a tragedy he’s never stopped blaming himself for failing to prevent. Ryan’s expertise with guns, martial arts, bombs, interrogation and high-speed chases means only an action-hero like Chris Pine’s could pull off this tough guy with a passionate, and romantic heart. Oh- and did I mention how hot he is?! Ryan all the way.
Now that we’ve put this into the universe- please let it happen!
What exciting choices you’ve made Karen, I do believe you have added to my excitement about reading this book - ooh I can’t wait! How about you, readers? Are you excited? What do you think of the actors above?
