Mystery and intrigue, secrets and lies!
The following ratings are out of 5:
World building: 🌏🌍🌎🌍
Character development: 😚🙂😁😍
The heroine: Keira Torian – younger sister to Cole Torian, mafia kingpin and the bad guy from Hunter, book one in this series. She works at her family’s restaurant. She sees threats everywhere and hates the people in her life, all the lies, deceit and danger.
The Hero: Decker – best friend to Hunter, they work together while Hunter was a contract based assassin for Torian. Now due to the events at the end of Hunter, both Decker and Hunter work for Torian all the time, not on a contract basis.
The Story: Decker meets Keira at Torian’s house and he is immediately attracted to both her strength and her vulnerability. Decker was a good guy and a great friend to both Hunter and Sarah in the first book and is a strong character. Kira is attracted to Decker from the beginning as well, though she knows getting mixed up with him isn’t smart.
Though many of the characters were introduced in the first book, this book can be read as a stand-alone. The characters are re-introduced at the beginning of this book and it is about a different couple and has a completely different storyline. I really enjoyed the mystery and intrigue in the first book so was looking forward to Decker’s story in this one.
The book was told in dual points of view via dual narration. The narration was done by Laura Jennings and D.C. Cole. I really liked Laura’s voice it was soft and feminine with strength behind it just like Kira. D.C. Cole has a nice voice but it isn’t as deep as I would have liked for Decker. Though overall the narration was good.
I enjoyed the story in this one, Decker was protecting Keira after a drive by shot up her family restaurant. There was mystery and intrigue, secrets and lies happening with both of them, much like in the first book. However, I didn’t feel the chemistry between these two like I did in Hunter and Sarah’s story. I am not quite sure why, but I liked the story much more than the romance in this one.
