Goodreads Summary: After two years undercover as an FBI agent to infiltrate a crime organization and discover the identity of a hit man, Tyler Beckett’s cover is blown. Tyler’s new assignment is to protect the only witness who can identify the mysterious killer. If only he didn’t find her so attractive. Each day it becomes harder to keep his objective, especially since he knows the interest is mutual.
Keira Cavanaugh is the only witness to a hit ordered by a crime boss. The safe house is compromised and the same hit man shoots Tyler. Fearing Tyler is dead, Keira plans revenge on the crime organization. She must fake her own suicide in order to survive.
When Tyler discovers what Keira plans, he realizes he must stop her before he loses her for good.
My Views: I am skeptical of new authors. There, I said it. Well, skeptical is not the right word. It’s just that I don’t know what to expect. I do love surprises though. And this book turned out to be a pleasant surprise.
Mystery, thriller, huh? Oh, I love those. Do you, too?
Then you should undoubtedly pick this one up. I was hooked from page 1 and devoured this 400 page book in a day or much rather in one sitting except I had to eat and do other chores.
A complete page-turner, this book is a wonderful romance mystery that has a brain-y woman who can stand up for herself (I love those) and a man who doesn’t think any less of her (I love those too). And lots of other characters and an amazing plot you can’t help but marvel at. Everything is just perfect to the T.
The plot, the way it’s written, well etched-out characters and the pace. Ooh!
Wasn’t I saying it was time for a good mystery a while back. I missed these. Ah, the action, the pace. Gotta love them. They are my first loves, well almost. I do love my romance too. And chick-lit, ooh. Ok, I am going way away from this book.
Mary Martinez has done a wonderful job with this book. It will make you rack your brains till the very end and ‘Oh’ and ‘Ah’s at the moves the plot takes. Very interesting and riveting.
And if you love romance, there’s quite a bit for you too. You won’t feel disappointed at all.
Alright, why am I not giving the book that 0.5 star? Umm, well, I didn’t like romance creeping into my mystery book. Don’t get me wrong. I love romance but well, I would have personally preferred a bit less of it. I would say to each his own.
Last words: An absolute must read. Goes on my ‘favorites’ shelf.
