Publisher's Summary

On the surface, the world glitters with all things only money can buy. My thoughts should be on the danger lurking beneath the surface. The money and power come from places and dealings the world pretends don't exist. I'm here at this debutante ball as a representative of the new Sparrow underworld. The clock is ticking as alliances are formed and enemies eliminated.

There isn't time to be distracted, and yet I catch a glimpse of the stunning woman across the room.

Surely, she's untouchable to someone like me. Maybe she's royalty or the daughter of a dignitary. Yet I'm drawn to her in a way I can't describe. Her beautiful, seductive smile, bright emerald eyes, and luscious red hair beckon me until I find myself by her side.

Her voice sings to me while her laugh shines sunlight into my dark and dangerous world.

And then the clock strikes midnight and she's gone.

I want more than that first kiss.

From New York Times best-selling author Aleatha Romig comes an intriguing and fun prologue to her newest romantic-suspense trilogy, Dangerous Web: Danger's First Kiss - a modern Cinderella story.

This novella is set in the dangerous world of the Sparrow Webs. You do not need to hear Web of Sin, Tangled Web, or Web of Desire to get caught up in this new dark-romance saga, Dangerous Web.

Great start to Lorna and Reid's story

This was a great start to Lorna and Reid's story. It piqued my curiosity about Sparrow and Lorna's brother Mason's involvement in that organization as well as the other books in the series. In helping him out by attending a ball, Lorna meets Reid. I am sure there is much more to their story. Sarah McEwan did a very good job with the narration.

If you're a cusser, it speaks your language.

Major overuse of the word F**king. The plot was good. I personally prefer male narrators, so for me that was a negative.

Dark meet cute narrated by 12 year old

Two hours listening to the narrator, who sounds like a 12 year old holding her nose, is as much as I can bear. I will not be continuing on to the full books. Because this was short, and free, I finished, which only convinced me that changing the narrator won’t help with me liking this author’s books.

While I can dig dark romance involving alpha males, and even anti-hero alpha males, I can’t abide Neanderthal men who only see women as things to own and protect. Lorna’s brother refers to girls as dolls and eagerly drags his own sister into the Sparrow criminal underworld, which struck me as the opposite of caring. This tonally off concept got me checking on the author’s other books. This is a “new” series connected to a bunch of mafia romance series with weak girls and criminal guys. In this short book, we are treated to several women being abused, including a step dad impregnating his teen daughter. Plus F bombs and way too much focus on sexy clothes says these books are not my thing.

Frustrating!

This is an interesting first glimpse into a Modern Day gritty Cinderella story that hints at many things to come but doesn’t really give the reader a lot of details and in this case it’s frustrating. I listened to the audiobook version and the narration by Sarah McEwan was okay.

Great Story!

4.5 stars
First, let me say that I love all things in the Sparrow world and to see how Lorna and Reid meet was a good start. I only wish there was more. But I know there will be so I am not going to be sad for too long.
Lorna and Mason are the best brother and sister, always taking care of each other. She is independent, sassy, and hard-working. He is an alpha male and sometimes overprotective. This is a look into their world after they got away from their toxic mother and he got back from the military. And Lorna had graduated high school. So life moves on and Mason wants to keep Lorna safe.
While at a "ball" she meets Mr. tall, dark, and handsome, aka Reid. But at midnight the fairy tale ends and she goes back to cleaning rooms.
As this series progresses through each couple, their backstories can sometimes be heartbreaking. But please keep reading as with all of the series I have read from author Aleatha Romig, she has a way of breaking your heart and putting it back together and making you love the characters even more. So jump in the Sparrow world with both feet and fall in love. I can not wait for more with Lorna and Reid. And I look forward to reading the rest of these dark fairy tales.

Don’t Bother

This left a lot to be desired. If this was just to be a preview of more to come it missed the mark.

So, so bad. The "story" is just incest hinting.

So badly written, dwindles more on useless conversations and descriptions of irrelevant things than on the "story". Which is just incest pandering. The main character spends more time admiring her "hawt" military brother than actually doing something. I could not, for the life of me finish this, it was so bad. Time is too precious to waste on self torture.

Cute

Very cute intro...but tale as old as time. Modern twist. I am sure there are twist and turns in the following books.

Short and sweet

This story is the perfect definition of short and sweet. I’m not a big fan of Cinderella but I enjoyed hearing this slightly darker version. The narrator was spot on. Loved it
