From USA Today bestselling author Katie Reus comes the next story in the explosive Redemption Harbor series where sparks fly and so do bullets…
He wasn’t supposed to fall for her…
She was a target. A contract that came across his desk by mistake. Axel was simply going to warn her that she was in danger and get out. Then he got a taste of her and fell hard. But they’re from two different worlds. Not only is she innocent, she’s out of his league. He should keep his distance, but he can’t. Not when someone wants her dead. Now he’s driven to protect her, to keep her safe.
What happens when she discovers who he really is?
Hadley moved to Redemption Harbor for vet school and to be closer to her new family. Now that her billionaire father knows about her existence, her life has changed drastically. She just never imagined that she might be targeted because of her family. And she definitely never imagined she would fall for the one man she should never want. A man who kills for a living. A man who’s obsessed with her. A man who will do anything to protect her from the danger lurking in the shadows.
Author note: This is a stand-alone novel in the Redemption Harbor series complete with an HEA and no cliffhanger.

Axel is a contract killer, yet overall a good guy, he falls for Hadley. Mistaken contract, now he wants to warn her, and get out, was easier said then done. She was naive, a new father and family with money. Someone wants her dead. Well done plot of a love they both felt they shouldn’t have, the heart knows best. Protection and love is what Hadley needed, and he was the best there was, a good series, and good plot. Readers will love Axel and Hadley. Can be read as a stand alone, but all in series is good.
Given ARC by Net Galley and KK Press for my voluntary review and my honest opinion.
I received a complimentary copy of this book and I am voluntarily reviewing it.
I could not put this book down. The plot was fast moving and thoroughly entrancing. The scenes were vividly playing in my mind just like a movie. The characters were very believable.
Hadley is a strong but gentle loving woman who had to grow up early due to a competitive mom. Hadley is now in contact with her wealthy father and brother. It is because of her wealthy father that a contract to kidnap her is put out on her. Axel is a man that is paid to kill for living. A copy of the contract is given to him as someone thinks it is a mistake and wants Axel to look into it. I adored Axel and his strong alpha tendencies to protect Hadley. The journey to their HEA is full of conflict and mystery. Who put out the contract? Were there more hit men out there? Would Hadley accept Axel into her life knowing what he did for a living?
This book was written in multiple POV format. Getting into the mind set of the characters is really necessary to fully understand the characters. I really think that Ms. Reus did a wonderful job in crafting a really intriguing suspenseful romance.
Some items in this story my cause certain triggers for some readers. There is no graphic descriptions of violence but the kidnapper's intention for Hadley was mentioned. If you love suspenseful romance, then this one is for you.
A must read!!!
It’s been a while since I’ve read a Katie Reus Book, and Innocent Target has drawn me right back in to her writing!!! We’ve got the mystery and suspense we’ve always loved from her, along with a sexy alpha hero, and sweet heroine. Axel and Hadley were perfect together. They definitely leveled each other out, and it was great to see him go from someone who was a bit scary, to a guy who would do anything for his love. I enjoyed the fact that even though her dad and brother are new in her life, they are completely protective of her, and would give their life for her.
A phenomenal must read I would definitely recommend!!!
