Jax De Luca IS My Kind Of Hero!!! Yummy!
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. This is the first book I have read written by the dynamic writing team of Annie Winters and Tony West and it will definitely not be my last! Move over Jason Bourne, Jack Teacher and James Bond - Jax De Luca is here! OMG! This series will draw you in from the very first chapter. The intrigue! The danger! The smoldering attraction between Jax and Mia! TOO HOT TO MISS A SINGLE SECOND!! This series is one of the most exhilarating and sexy reads I have every read! Major cliff hanger that only promises to deliver more romantic adventures in the next book! Like watching your favorite TV series that builds suspense with each new episode, only better! I can't wait for the next installment.
Review: The Vigilantes #1: The Vigilante's Lover
The Vigilante's Lover by Annie Winters and Tony West is the first in a new series titled The Vigilantes. A quick read with a cliffhanger ending, a focus on suspense and action in addition to the romantic undertones and erotic scenes, this book was very different from what I've been reading lately.
Mia is a quiet girl. She lost her parents when she was younger and lived with her aunt after that. Her parents were wild and exciting, her aunt no-so-much. Mia wishes she were more like her mother these days but also loves her aunt and realizes she has modeled herself more like her aunt's quiet and steady lifestyle.
Having moved back home to help her aunt after a stroke and then losing her aunt shortly after Mia finds letters from an inmate. Mia's parents were avid boaters and insisted Mia learned all the nautical knots until she could do them and recognize them with ease. The reason for this is yet to be explained. When the inmate's letters combine erotic scenes with these nautical knots Mia can't help but end up writing back to the inmate, Jax De Luca.
When Jax receives the letters, which are a cypher for one of his spy-partners, he is confused at the misuse of the cypher they have in place. He escapes and heads for the safe house which also happens to be Mia's aunts home.
What happens when these two meet? The innocent women writing the prison inmate/spy and mixing the cyphers. Is her life now in danger? If the house is a safe house why does Mia not know about it? And why the nautical knots?
I was a little thrown by the technology and the whole "Vigilante" business. It wasn't hard to get a basic understanding as I was reading but it made me wonder if there is more story prior to this I haven't read.
Are we in the current age (2014) and everyone NOT in the Syndicate is unaware of the Syndicate or are we a little further along the timeline and this is a new thing (say 2034 or some other futuristic date)?
Intriguing and suspenseful I look forward to reading more and have already pre-ordered my copy of part two, glutton for cliffhangers that I am :-D
