This is one of those novel that it is hard to find the words for. It is SO GREAT to jump into a novel and to find yourself able to get completely lost in it. This novel was the perfect blend of Lisa Renee Jone’s previous heroines with a new breed of bad-assery. I would say it reminds me of Janet Evanovich or even a non paranormal version of Laurell K. Hamilton’s leading lady, Anita Blake and her crime solving antics and attitude. Lilah was a hefty dose of “I Got This” with a mouth to match it. I LOVED the fact that this heroine held her own and didn’t need a man to lean on, let alone save her. It was refreshing.
Also, she is hilarious and fantastic. Some of her moment I found myself just laughing because it was TOTALLY something I would say or do.
This was like watching an episode of Rizzoli and Isles, except no Isles and the family aren’t exactly chummy. But same feel. This novel was but a compilation of episodes in a series that was going to kill me in the end, and I was right.
Murder, Hidden Past. Drug Cartels. OMG HE WAS NAKED AND SHE SAID WHAT? Yeah, it was that kind of book.
I can’t wait to read the next installment in this series. It is a whole new ball game and I am ready to play.
New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones’s heart-pounding thriller of a woman’s secrets—and a past that’s about to come out of hiding…
As an FBI profiler, it’s Lilah Love’s job to think like a killer. And she is very good at her job. When a series of murders surface—the victims all stripped naked and shot in the head—Lilah’s instincts tell her it’s the work of an assassin, not a serial killer. But when the case takes her back to her hometown in the Hamptons and a mysterious but unmistakable connection to her own life, all her assumptions are shaken to the core.
Thrust into a troubled past she’s tried to shut the door on, Lilah’s back in the town where her father is mayor, her brother is police chief, and she has an intimate history with the local crime lord’s son, Kane Mendez. The two share a devastating secret, and only Kane understands Lilah’s own darkest impulses. As more corpses surface, so does a series of anonymous notes to Lilah, threatening to expose her. Is the killer someone in her own circle? And is she the next target?
