I’m leaving my dark past behind me, where it belongs, and it seems like fate has finally smiled on me when she comes into my life. Innocent, pure, and with a bright future ahead of her, she’s the girl I always wanted and never deserved. Then, those scumbags steal her right from under of my nose. But they don’t know who I am, or the lives I’ve taken. They’re out to make some quick cash by selling a pure bride, and there’s no way I’m going to let that happen. Not to her. I have to risk everything to save her. Then, I’ll try to win her heart and make her mine.
When it comes to heroic hitmen, this author is the best option. Wow! And I mean really impressive. This novel in particular has stolen my breath. I devoured it in one day because I fell in love with the characters and their powerful bond.
Sadly, I can't disclose the plot as it has a huge part in how awesome the story becomes to the reader. Yes, the characters feel real and wonderful, yet the things that happen to them and in the way they do make a genuine impact. I didn't expect all the turns and they never stopped coming, even in the end there is a big dramatic surprise that sweeps the couple up into a frenzy for their lives once more. This mafia romance with a Russian hitman and a young gymnastics student is one of a kind.
Brimming with sweet prose and vivid description, it starts introducing Max in all his vindictive glory. No hesitation, all sleek and lethal assassin skills, he is one man to be remembered. Then we meet Liv, sheltered, small, smart and with a steady spirit that will serve her well in the nightmare that awaits her in foreign lands. With a double POV and a careful insight into all the main characters' personalities, the story comes alive with excitement at the first taste of freedom, horror and cruelty from one of the most vicious crimes in the world, and exhilaration at the deadly rescue from a man who knows darkness but can also bring light.
The relationship between Liv and Max is beautifully romantic at the same time is pulses with violence, sensuality and redemption. I loved it. Hot? Oh, heah, but not overbearingly so. And I also loved the superb action and fight scenes. They both have to face an enemy that lurks in the shadows of pretty cities and makes them truly ugly. I think this is the best book written by the author so far. It's really good and it's endlessly entertaining. Go for it!
