Alexis MacGuire is just like other college students. She goes to class, eats pizza, and holds down a job. The difference is, her job could get her killed.
As the unluckiest member of a family of elite assassins, she spends her spare time jetting from one country to another neutralizing scum the government doesn’t want to be attached to--often in unconventional and unplanned ways.
When she receives an email exposing the secrets of her last job she enters into a game of cat and mouse with someone known only as the Hunter. With the help of her brother, her best friend, and an FBI agent who makes her heart skip beats, she must find the Hunter before he destroys everything and everyone she loves.
My Thoughts and Review:
I think I have started a new obsession in female heroines. I have always loved kick butt protagonists but kick butt female assassins? Even better!
This is the second book in as many days where I have been completely captivated by a story about a female assassin. I can't even tell you for sure why I have enjoyed them so much other than it is just the writing of both authors and the characters that they have created that have drew me in and held my attention. Have made me put off doing the laundry and vacuuming the floors (by the way, my husband does not thank you for that Ms. Emeline!!) and probably some other things that I really should have been doing but we are all guilty of it at some point in time. Well all of us that is, that have a passion for books and has ever been so immersed in a story that we find it hard to put down.
And even though we have fifty million other things we should be doing, don't because hey, that would require that we actually put down our book and who wants that?!
So while I was hoping I would get a great kick butt heroine once again, and thankfully did, what I wasn't expecting was to get a very creepy mystery stalker as well and a pretty steamy love interest too.
I mean seriously, an assassin, a mystery stalker and one heck of a love interest? Could this book have gotten any better?
I don't want to give anything away because you truly just need to experience this book for yourself but this really was a great fun read full of witty on liners, steamy romance, lots of action and great characters that feel very real and like people you would know and care about.
I had a lot of fun reading this one and will definitely be looking into Emeline's other work in the future.
I give this one a very solid 4 Stars!
