Victor is a cold-blooded assassin who, like Sarai, has known only death and violence since he was a young boy. When Victor arrives at the compound to collect details and payment for a hit, Sarai sees him as her only opportunity for escape. But things don't go as planned and instead of finding transport back to Tucson, she finds herself free from one dangerous man and caught in the clutches of another.
While on the run, Victor strays from his primal nature as he succumbs to his conscience and resolves to help Sarai. As they grow closer, he finds himself willing to risk everything to keep her alive; even his relationship with his devoted brother and liaison, Nicklas, who now like everyone else wants Sarai dead.
As Victor and Sarai slowly build a trust, the differences between them seem to lessen, and an unlikely attraction intensifies. But Victor's brutal skills and experience may not be enough in the end to save her, as the power she unknowingly holds over him may ultimately be what gets her killed.
This is their story...
I haven't read this type of book in a long time and this author has made me miss them. This is also the first book by this author that I have read, thank you to my buddy read and that she recommended this book for me.
I was thrown right into the action of this book as soon as I started it. The action continued throughout the book all the way to the end. I can't wait to read the next book in this series, but I am hoping that there is more romance in it. When I was getting towards the end of the book I was like "oh, this better not be end." I was actually holding my breath at the end of each chapter.
Sarai, this poor girl. I can't even imagine going through what she has and be sane. She has been through so much, and she has endured it but wants out so bad. She sees her chance and takes it. Victor, he's breaking all the rules for this girl. She knew it would change her life if she got away, but she didn't realize how it was going to change it. She gets caught up in the things that Victor has shown her and she likes it. I can't wait to see what she does now that her life has taken on a different direction.
