Series: Killer Instincts Book #1
Author: Elle Kennedy
Genre: Romance, Romantic Suspense
Blurb: Dangerous. Ruthless. Savage.
And she’s the good guy.
Abby Sinclair had a desperate childhood until she was rescued and adopted by a retired army ranger who molded her into a master of self-defense. Now, she’s a cunning and fearless assassin thrust into assignment after dangerous assignment, using everything she has-nerve, resilience, strength, sex-to come out on top. Her only rule: never trust anyone.
Abby’s latest assignment is in Columbia: go undercover and snuff out a dangerous arms dealer active in the underground sex trade. But when Abby purposely blows her cover in a last-ditch attempt to free the helpless victims, deadly mercenary Kane Woodland is recruited as back-up. His mission: get Abby out of that hell hole.
The last thing Kane expects is to feel a primal attraction to Abby. But when she convinces him to join her on her perilous mission, their newfound passion could put the lives of their whole team at risk.
Thoughts: Oh, WOW! I have no idea how I managed to miss out on this author’s books for so long! It doesn’t get any better than this when it comes to romantic suspense…. strong characters, plenty of action, sexy mercenary men, sensual scenes…..I don’t even know where to start on praising this book!
I really have to give the author credit here…. normally with the ‘first in a series’ books like this you are just thrown so many different characters at once – typically it can be a bit overwhelming for some readers. Not to mention all the pressure of world building. The author, however, made it almost effortless. Each character is so distinct in their own right – it definitely has me looking forward to the rest of the books in this series!
And Abby? I think she is -by far- the strongest female I have seen in a book. Yet she manages to attain a vulnerability to her character that really makes you just love her all the more. Kane, of course, is her perfect match – so much so, that he manages to hold his own against such a intense character.
Love it! Can’t wait to read more from this series and this amazing author!
Midnight Captive, Book #6 in this series, will be releasing on June 2, 2015.
