Skye witnesses a double murder and is forced to run for her life. She doesn't know how she'll survive, but she'll do anything to live another day. When contracts are taken out on her life, her only hope is a rival assassin determined to use her as collateral. It's not the best situation but at least she's safe for now. Things get immeasurably more complicated when she starts to fall for her captor.
Galen King kills for a living, but it's nothing personal. He works for the Circle of Monsters, a group of ruthless contract hitmen. They do their job, no questions asked, and emotions never get in the way. Each hit is another payday until he has Skye Lewis in his sights—then nothing is the same.
Can he change the rules and keep Skye alive? Or will his boss demand he follow orders or pay the ultimate price?
Galen and Skye
What’s a hitman’s worse nightmare? Having to stop a hit right before he pulls the trigger, and then protect said mark. He’s had a troubled past and kills with no remorse. There is no way he has enough of a heart to fall in love. Right?
I love the morally gray antihero that goes all gooey over his queen. Such a great book. I can’t wait for the next book in this series.
I received a free copy of this book via Evernight and am voluntarily leaving a review.
She’s just so annoying
I tried. I just couldn’t make it through. The main character is annoying and selfish and constantly refuses to listen to reason. There’s no explanation for why they “fall in love” when he hates her from the start. Lots of cliche tropes used. Thank goodness this was free.
