Character development: 😚🙂😁😍🥰
The heroine: Steph (a.k.a. Emma Stephens) – she hunts bad men who are ignored by the law and exacts retribution against them. We first see her reeling in a man named Daniel who likes to beat and strangle prostitutes. She drugs him with rohypnol and ties him up to get her retribution. Though in reality she is looking for information and trying to find someone from her past.
The Hero: Hunter – he meets Steph at her local bar, across the street from her apartment. He tells her he just got to town, and has come to help his sister who was left after just having a baby, by an abusive boyfriend. Though in reality we see that he is there for Steph and he does what he can to get more involved in her life.
The Story: Steph walks away from Hunter after she sees he is carrying a gun. She is paranoid when she sees him at her gym a few days later. Though it is true he was there before she got there and the gym isn’t even close to her neighborhood. Steph is interested in Hunter though she doesn’t like the fact that he has turned up again.
The book is told in dual points of view via dual narration. It was narrated by Maxine Mitchell and Joe Arden who both do a great job. Maxine has a feminine voice which sounds perfect for Steph. She is very good at sounding nervous at times and strong at times and she is very good at having different voices for male and female characters. Joe Arden has a great deep and gravelly voice which I really like.
There is a ton of sexual chemistry and tension in this book. It is unclear exactly what hunter is really doing, but it is clear that he has a ton of interest in Steph and not just in what she has been doing with her free time. Hunter is working for a guy named Torian, but he doesn’t seem to like Torian or the way he does business. I liked the mystery of what Steph is looking for and what Hunter is doing.
