My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Even better than I hoped it would be.
After Crowed and Ruin, I knew this book would be good, but this one had all the psycho assassin drama and a lot more humor than I expected. I loved it. The romance between Ghost and Elle was feisty and steamy, the intrigue was tremendous and the humor was on point. Elle is a champion underground boxer who is going undercover at a brothel and office where Ghost and his team are running some businesses for the Mafia, such as drug production and distribution.
Elle wants to find her friend Zoe who disappeared while trying to get information on the operation for the police. Ghost a.k.a. Julian agrees that Elle can serve drinks only, but he and his friends Mist and Shadow are suspicious of her. Elle and Julian have an attraction from the beginning.
Some of the best scenes in the book center around Shadow who often provides comic relief. He continually calls Mist a Hag even though she is in her Twenties and near the same age as him, if not younger, and can never seem to get an idiom correct.
“Did you just smile?” Shadow considers me with wide eyes. The man witnessed and committed countless murders but never appeared so shocked.
“What’s wrong with that?” I say as we quicken our pace after our guy. He wouldn’t have gotten far.
“You never smile. Stop doing it. That look will haunt me in my daydreams.”
“You mean nightmares?”
“Same thing, mate.” He sprints ahead and rounds the corner.
This book is the best one so far and Shadows’s story is next, so I can’t wait to read that one. He is not only funny but very hot and muscular with awesome tattoos.
