Series: Assassins #4
A man like me shouldn’t have a family. But the minute I opened my eyes from a coma and saw her, I knew I’d forever be tied to her. A nurse who nurtures life. A mother.
I’ve stalked her for two years, unable to stop but refusing to give in to the need to have her. To love her. Until the night her daughter is taken. I’ll light up the world to get Leah’s child back to her.
And then I’ll walk away for good. Not because it’s the right thing to do, but because I know how she’ll look at me after seeing who I truly am.
She’ll see the murderer inside me. And God help me, but she’ll be right.
At least until Leah stirred in my arms. Seconds later her body went rigid.
“It’s all right, just me,” I murmured into her hair.
My name, husky in her sleep-roughened voice. Blood surged to my cock without my permission. “Yeah.”
Leah tried to turn, to face me, but I tightened my arms. Just a few minutes longer. Or a lifetime. I wasn’t anywhere near ready to let go.
She stilled. Relaxed. Her body went boneless against mine in an age-old display of trust. Leah wasn’t submissive, not anywhere else, but here, now, she was surrendering her body to my demands. It was the kind of gift a man like me would never dream of receiving because we didn’t deserve it.
Leah gave it anyway, hardening my cock even more.

I enjoyed this couple a lot more than I did the previous couple. 🙌 Remi was a decent guy who treated Leah respectfully. 💑 He was all in from the start and there wasn’t very much resistance from Leah. 💏 This author has an ease to her writing that makes it very enjoyable to read. 👍 The story flowed well. 👍 The plot was engaging. 👀 There was a nice amount of steam. 🔥 There was no OW or OM drama. 👐 It is never stated in black and white whether Remi was celibate for the eighteen months he was watching over Leah. 😳 I felt that he probably was since he was taken with her. 🙊 But if you are a reader who likes that spelled out for you, then you’ll be disappointed in that regard. 🙈 Personally, I would have liked some confirmation myself…but what can you do? 🙏 Again in this book, we have a good cast of secondary characters. 👫👤👫 A cute kid. 👧 Remi’s brothers, and Abby. 👩 Last, it was all wrapped up in a decent happy for now. 👍👍
Side Note: There were a couple of plot holes in this one that didn’t overly bother me. I found them a bit amusing. Both pertained to her job. Like, HOW did she go to school to be a nurse in the first place? Especially given her situation. 👀
Hi there! I’m a mom and wife by day (and night), aspiring writer (in my dreams), and an avid reader (every day of the week). This is my little corner of the web to post about ALL things books. I live in Copenhagen, but I am a Canadian girl (born and raised) at heart.
