If you haven’t tried Saman’s work yet, it’s time to change that! There’s an intensity to her writing that hooks you in and doesn’t let go until the last page. Even when I was torn about some of the elements in this dark romance, she had me reeled into the story. It’s darker than I anticipated – a lot of that stems from the personalities of our antihero and antiheroine – but so addictive. This one’s for those who love a complicated romance, don’t shy away from darkness, and are willing to go on an action-packed ride. There’s plenty of suspense to keep you turning the pages, a compelling romance, and intimacy that shines during some very steamy scenes. Don’t worry if you’re not caught up on the series – there might be a couple of references that go over your head, but this reads easily as a standalone.
The story follows Emma, a woman who has been on the run since discovering that her ex is a killer. She fled for her life 5 years ago and has been looking over her shoulder ever since. When she meets a charming, flirtatious guy with darkness lurking behind his eyes, Emma isn’t sure what to think. Her trust in men is almost non-existent, and something about him makes her believe that there’s a ruthlessness under his polished exterior. Assigned with the task of watching Emma, Gavin is surprised by how intriguing he finds her. While darkness has always lived inside Gavin – he’s an assassin by trade because he loves to kill – he sees that life has hardened Emma and changed her. There’s a connection there that Gavin would love to ignore, but violence seems to bring these two together.
This isn’t my first time reading one of Saman’s books, so I knew I was going to be in for an intense, complicated read – and it is exactly that. Gavin is a lot darker than I expected him to be (honestly, so is Emma), which I definitely struggled with at times but I also couldn’t help but love their connection. There’s no mistaking that Gavin is cold-blooded, but Emma brings out another side to him that was great to see. This one’s going to push your boundaries while holding your interest. Prepare yourself for an action-packed, dark read with lots of triggering content. Saman is such a skilled writer that she made me love this couple; her steamy scenes are really incredible, focusing on advancing the storyline while also heating up the pages. That’s not the focus of the book – there is a ton of suspense in this one – but I loved all of those quieter moments that draw these two broken souls together. That’s where she really excels as a writer and my absolute favorite part of her work. Buckle up for a twisted, crazy ride with this one – and don’t say that I didn’t warn you. I was lucky enough to receive an ARC and am voluntarily leaving a review of this sexy, suspenseful read.
From USA Today Bestselling author J. Saman comes a dark, romantic standalone about a woman running from her deadly ex and the sexy assassin sworn to protect her.
Everyone has an ex who haunts them.
Mine shot me in the arm and told me to run or he’d kill everyone I ever loved. And then he’d kill me.
Years later, he’s made good on that promise. I’m the only one left.
He’s got his sights set on finding me, and my options on places to hide are quickly running out.
Until I meet a gorgeous assassin with an agenda of his own…putting not only my life, but my heart in danger.
With piercing green eyes and irresistible confidence, Gavin tells me not to be afraid. Promises he’s on my side. Swears he’s here to protect me instead of doing what he does best…kill.
The desire to trust him is tempting. The passion between us, even more so.
But when everything I thought I knew is suddenly flipped upside down, and all that’s dangerous and forbidden comes to light, I have to make a choice.
Continue to run and hide…
Or risk it all, including the man who somehow captured my heart.
