Product Description

On the heels of a crime spree in the small town of Nyack, a new threat has arrived…

Dwayne Gonzalez has always had a thing for Brooke Mason, but she married another man, had a child, and started her life without him. Now, years and a divorce later, he’s still on the sidelines. A drug investigation is about to change all that.

Dwayne suspects Brooke’s daughter, Hailey, knows more than she’s saying about the drugs being pushed in the halls of Nyack High. When the unthinkable happens and Hailey ends up missing, Dwayne will risk everything to get her back. Dwayne and Brooke set out to find her, and as the threat grows, so does a passion that’s been denied for far too long. Will they find Hailey? And can he convince Brooke that their time is now?

4.0 out of 5 stars This series is picking up steam! June 30 2015
By Janis F - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Detective Dwayne Gonzalez became my obsession in the first Empire Blue Book, Intimate Danger, and I could not wait for his book to come out. This book is based on Dwayne’s drug case. We meet Hailey, Brooke’s daughter and someone Dwayne considers a daughter, stuck in the middle of it. I will not lie to you, the beginning of this book was very difficult for me to read. Things happened to 17 year old Hailey that no mother ever wants to happen to their daughter. That being said, about 17% into the book I had to put it down and walk away for a day. But I did pick it back up because I knew there was no way DC wasn’t going to give me a happily ever after. The hunt was on for Hailey, Dwayne and Brooke’s relationship takes a turn and we were introduced to several Gonzalez brothers who come to assist in the hunt for Hailey. At this point I was extremely glad I picked the book back up.

There were moments in this book I wanted to smack Dwayne in the head and shake the hell out of Brooke. How could she not see how much Dwayne loved her over the past 17 years even with him going through woman like crazy? Once the brothers showed up I literally could not put this book down. Yep, the book I put down after only 17% became the book I could not get enough of!!!

DC’s characters are intriguing, a bit mysterious and sexy as hell. Luke Gonzalez grabbed my heart from the minute he showed up and has turned into my new obsession. Chris Gonzalez has something mysterious revolving around him and I’m looking forward to reading his book next.

So … When you pick up this book and you really should, don’t be afraid to get past the 17% read mark. You will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intense, emotional, and sexy read. Awesome Story! June 28 2015
By MamaD8 - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Wow, just wow. I'm pretty sure I started my review of the first book in this series like this, and DC does not disappoint with this instalment.
Dwayne is all kinds of yummy, and seeing him struggle with his feelings for the one woman he's always loved and never had... oh yes.

Without giving too much away, this book was an intensely emotional read, especially when you're the mother of daughters, like I am. I confess I had to put my Kindle down at times and take a deep breath, because the subject matter fed into all of my worst nightmare scenarios.

However, DC handles the subject matter with great skill and compassion, and of course this story has a HEA so all's well, but man oh man. It's been a while since a story caused me to shed tears, laugh out loud, and get all gooey all at the same time, but this one has.

I believe I mentioned how yummy Dwayne is, but I'll do so again. He is just swoon worthy, and there were plenty of times I wanted to strangle the heroine. While I could understand her reservations, I also wanted to give her a good shake and tell her to see what's right under her freaking nose, lol.

Then there are the supporting characters. Brooke's daughter is a typical teen and seeing the relationship she has with her mother made me smile, and brought with it echoes of home. No doubt why I found reading what happens to her so tough. However, that is also the one thing I really like about DC's writing, the realism.

It grabs you, hits you between the eyes and makes you root for her characters. And then, there are Dwayne's brothers. Lordy me, I could feel the testosterone leap at me through my e-readers. Again his interaction with his brothers is just perfect, and so realistic, you can't help but smile.

Sharp dialogue, great descriptions, intense emotions, and hot sex. This story has it all. Read it! Nuff said. I'm looking forward to the next instalment, especially Dwayne's brother Luke's story. We only get to meet him toward the end of the book, but he plays a pivotal role and he stole a piece of my heart. :-)

4.0 out of 5 stars . I was devastated by what Hailey was forced to endure at the hands of someone she trusted, Nov. 3 2015
By Teresa T - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Book 2 in the Empire Blue series is full of danger, drug addiction, and human trafficking. I have not read book 1 yet and can say that in no way did that lessen the reading enjoyment of Intimate Fear.

Emotions run high when Brooke's daughter, Hailey fails to come home after a date. Brooke falls apart, understandably so, however I was shocked that she did not reach out for help sooner. Dwayne is her best friend and has been a father figure for Hailey growing up. Why would she not call him immediately. That is the only part of this story I had strong disagreement with. Dwayne has deep feelings for Brooke, which he has hidden very well from Brooke. Those feelings come to the forefront as the story progresses. Brooke realizes she wants more from Dwayne as well.

Dwayne has several brothers, tho they are all adopted they have very strong family ties. They are all in some kind of public protection field, which is very handy in tracking down Hailey's whereabouts. I loved the suspense and angst that this book throws at you. I was devastated by what Hailey was forced to endure at the hands of her boyfriend, someone she trusted, until it was too late.

I am looking forward to reading more from DC Stone. The brothers have stories coming, I can feel it. :)

“I received a copy of this book from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review”.

5.0 out of 5 stars i loved this! July 19 2015
By MRS M D ATTENBOROUGH - Published on

Independant reviewer for Paranormal Romance and Authors That Rock.

Brooke is Dwayne's best friend, has been since kindergarten. Dwayne has wanted more from Brooke for for just as long, but he stayed back, watched as she fell in love, got married, had a child, and stood by her when that marriage fell apart. So when Brooke's 17year old daughter, Hailey goes missing, Dwayne steps up, both as Brooke's best freind, and as a Detective in the Nyack police deptartment, trying to shut down a drug ring at Hailey's school. Things take a turn for the worst when they discover just what and who Hailey has got mixed up in. But through it all, Dwayne is right there, by Brooke's side. Something changes along the way, and Dwayne makes it known what he wants, WHO he wants. Will Brooke give in, or will she hold Dwayne's past against him?

This is book two in the series, the Empire Blue Series, and I have not read book one, Intimate Danger. This will go on my wish list though. I did not feel I missed out on anything, but just because I wanna read it!


The right amount of history, both for Dwayne and Brooke. The right amount of now. The right amount of danger, of passion, of being kept on your toes, of falling in love, falling out, and of making up again. We get to hear from both Brooke and Dwayne, but also Hailey, as she spirals downwards, and we hear from Luke, Dwayne's younger brother, as he attempts to save Hailey, all the time fighting with himself. These Gonzales boys are amazing! They pull together when one of their own is threatened, and lets be honest here, Brooke, and by extension, Hailey, is one of their own. As Hailey puts it, Brooke and Dwayne have been pussy-fotting it around each other for years!

Some difficult topics dealt with here, and some readers may find that they have triggers. Forced drug addiction, drug dealing, human trafficking and child prostitution are all dealt with here. Extremely wel, extremely sensitively and all very, very well written.

I see *at least* two more stories branching off this one. Hailey and Luke have something to say, I'm sure and when they do, that's gonna be amazing, but equally, I fear, heartbreaking for them both. And another brother, Mike. What happened to him before he called Dwayne, and its after effects need a book too, I reckon. I'm following this series to see who is next!

This is the first book of D.C.Stone's I've read, I hope it won't be the last. Her style of writing, her way with words, her storylines are all excellent, and fabulous, and I want to read more.

5 full stars

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good! Oct. 19 2015

Format: Kindle Edition
This is very emotional book, very intense, there were some very difficult subjects dealt with in the story, child prostitution, human trafficking and forced drug addiction. Not everyone's choice of reading. But this was a very well written story.

Brooke and Dwayne have been friends since kindergarten. Dwayne has watched Brooke fall in love with someone else and marry have his child then let her cry on his shoulder when they separated and finally divorced. He's always wanted more from their relation but he's held back and stayed in the friends zone. But when her daughter disappears he has to step forward to help as a friend and also as the police Detective he is.

Very entertaining, and a great page turner.
