Blog Tour - Dangerous Girl

Sometimes your enemies are closer than you think

Anna is finally happy. She’s rid of her abusive ex and she’s co-owner of London’s hottest new club, with her best friend Tanya. But she is worried about her boyfriend, Freddie. He’s keeping things from her. And he won’t tell her where he goes in the middle of the night.

Freddie is furious. A girl has gone missing from one of his clubs and the police are all over him. When a familiar face turns up and threatens him, he’s offered a deal – find the girl or Anna will be killed.

With time running out, Freddie risks everything to save Anna’s life. And if there’s one thing Freddie Tyler is known for, it’s that he never gives up. Not without a fight…

Author Bio

Emma Tallon is a British, gritty crime writer, adventurer, Londoner and mother to a young son. Starting her career a few years ago as a ghostwriter, Emma crafted some of the most adventurous, edgy and heart-wrenching stories you can find on the shelves today.

In March 2017 Emma stepped out of the literary shadows and self-published her first book, Life Game. The book was an instant success, the results far exceeding anything she had expected. As news of Life Games popularity spread, she joined forces with W.F.Howes and the audiobook was launched in October 2017.

In December 2017, Emma signed a three book deal with publishers Bookouture. This included Life Game which was changed, re-edited and re-released as Runaway Girl.

Drawing inspiration for her books from a mixture of her own observations and an active imagination, the characters Emma paints are colourful and larger than life. Her story lines are an interesting recipe of deep emotion and violent grit, that keep her readers engrossed.

With two more books in the works for this series already, Emma has many more stories planned out for the future.

My Review

I am a massive fan of Martina Cole, so when I saw this book I knew it would be right up my street. It definitely has all the elements I love. Even though the story has got a Cole feel to it, Emma Tallon definitely has her own unique voice when it comes to this type of story.

The story follows Anna, who is no nonsense type of girl, she is running a legitimate  and successful business. She is happy with her boyfriend, who doesn't play by the rules. Anna knows he is hiding something from her. She doesn't realise that he is actually trying to protect them both. Anna has found it difficult to trust, due to a past relationship. I enjoyed reading about the relationship between Anna and Freddie, he is a bad boy but he idolises Anna. He will do anything to keep her safe.
I absolutely loved this book! Even though I haven't read the first part, that didn't matter. There was enough history given throughout, that it is certainly able to be read as a standalone novel. (I will be reading the first part just to find out the full story).
Emma certainly has a way of writing brilliant characters. The whole story was something I flew through and couldn't put down. The little twist at the end added a little something extra, and I hope to find out how that pans out in future books.



  1. This is definitely the type of book I'm usually in to. I'll have to check it out! Great review!
