Series: Assassins #3
Until the woman I’d kidnapped became the woman I couldn’t walk away from.
She owns a piece of me I wouldn’t take back, but the rest? The only way to protect her is to hold back the parts inside me that are too ugly to ever reveal. I’ll keep her safe, even from me.
And it works. We have the nights, and I hunt my way through the days. Alone.
Until an attack reveals a threat we didn’t see coming. One that could take away the dream I didn’t realize I had.
Everything. With her.
I’m on the hunt of my life. My prey might run, but in this fight—for her, for us—they don’t stand a chance.
I hated how everything that came out of my mouth sounded like I was barking orders. Some pansy-ass prince charming could probably soothe her, croon in her ear; I sounded like a drill sergeant whipping her into shape.
Abby ignored the demand and dug into her clothes. When she pulled out a pair of panties, a growl ripped from my chest.
“Save it, Levi.”
I pushed to my feet. “Ignoring what happened won’t make it go away. We have to deal—”
“What if I don’t want to?” she snapped. Pajama bottoms came out next. “Maybe I just want to live in a fantasy world for one night. Reality is calling insurance companies and finding a new place to live. Reality is knowing someone hates me enough to bomb my house, and that you don’t love me. Why would I want to face all that?”
She stood up, her pajamas gripped tight in one hand. Every line of her body rejected me, but I couldn’t let it go. I couldn’t let her go on believing…
“I never said I don’t love you.”
Abby scoffed. “You never said you do, either. You never said you want to build a life together. You never said you wanted a future.”
Because a man like me doesn’t have a future. “I’m an assassin,” I pointed out. “I kill people for a living. What kind of future is that?”
Abby refused to look at me. “Exactly. No future.”
This was kind of a 🅦🅔🅘🅡🅓 book for me. 👀 I ᴇɴᴊᴏʏᴇᴅ it. 👍 It was a relatively 𝓺𝓾𝓲𝓬𝓴 read. 👍 The ₱ⱠØ₮ kept me engaged. 👍 I enjoyed the 🅲🅷🅰🆁🅰🅲🆃🅴🆁🆂 (especially the brothers). 🙌 The sex was hot. 🔥 There was no 🅞🅦 or 🅞🅜 drama. 😁 And it was all աʀǟքքɛɖ up in an OK 🅗🅐🅟🅟🅨 🅕🅞🅡 🅝🅞🅦. 🎀
All those things 𝓼𝓱𝓸𝓾𝓵𝓭 have made this one a slam dunk. 🏀 Yet as I read the last 🅿🅰🅶🅴🆂 I couldn’t help thinking…”what was the point❓” I was expecting a lot more ₳₦₲₴₮ between this couple. 🙈 There was barely any. 👀 Instead we get a whole new “вαddíє” situation. 💃 Which again, I didn’t 🅗🅐🅣🅔…I just felt that maybe the first ҍօօƘ could have been longer and 🅰🅱🅱🆈 and 🅻🅴🆅🅸’🆂 relationship 𝓭𝓸𝓷𝓮 𝓪𝓷𝓭 𝓭𝓾𝓼𝓽𝓮𝓭 in that one. 🙏
Aɳყɯαყ, it wasn’t a bad book. 😍 I enjoyed it enough that I will most 🅻🅸🅺🅴🅻🆈 check out the next one in the series. 👍
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.
