The story is good though nothing really original. Mob hitman, Aras, is out for revenge on another criminal, Vlad, who murdered his parents when he was a boy. He kidnaps the woman, Lake, who means the most to the guy he wants revenge against. It turns out that she was basically held hostage by the guy and abused by him for years.
Aras is a sociopath who doesn’t have any emotions, but he begins to obsess over Lake and feel for her. He doesn’t lie to her and tells her he might hurt her in the end and her life may be on the line. The book is the first in a series of 2, so it ends in a cliffhanger. Though the second is only 166 pages.
“Looks like he’s waiting,” Ezekiel said. “Yeah,” I responded, my eyes on the limo parked in the abandoned lot. “Can you believe this idiot? Taking a limo to a clandestine fucking meeting?”
