Amazon ** Barnes & Noble ** Kobo** iBooks

Ava McKenzie is a creature of habit. Life is passing her by and she has nothing to show for it. She’s had the same job since she started college, she orders the same dish every time she goes to her favorite restaurant, and only reads books from authors she knows. There is nothing new or surprising in her life… until her best friend marries a man from London. When her newlywed friend asks her to house-sit while she honeymoons, Ava jumps at the chance. She thinks this could be the very thing she needs to shake up her life. Ava throws herself head first into her new lifestyle; she wants to try everything, go everywhere, and never get stuck in a rut again. Of course, offing a man in a car garage hadn’t been one of the things on her list to try.

Owen Walker spends every day in a new place with a new case. As one of the most renowned assassins in the world, he has his choice of marks—and he’s never failed in a mission. When a new hit takes him back to his hometown, he looks forward to spending time somewhere familiar. What he isn’t expecting is to help an attractive, confused American woman find out how she’s ended up on a hit man’s list.

As Ava and Owen dodge bullets, will they be able to escape their undeniable attraction to each other? Or will all of that chemistry blow up in a shower of hot and dangerous sparks?

I didn’t say anything, not wanting to turn his ire in my direction. When he ducked into a quiet alley and turned to look at me, I felt my blood pressure rocket. Gone was the gentle man that had offered me sliced apples and teased me about my romance book. I was staring into the eyes of the man that killed people for a living.


“Why? Why would you agree to go in there with her?” He stepped toward me and I took a step back. “With a woman that is suggesting she use you as bait? What part of that sounds like a good idea? You don’t even know her.”


“You could be killed, Ava. I’m trying to protect you and you offer yourself up as the sacrificial lamb!” He took another step toward me, but I had nowhere to go. Cool brick and the hard edges of the pistol pressed into my back.


“You don’t belong in this mess. You’re going to get hurt.” His eyes bored into mine. “I’m taking you to another safe house and locking you up there. I’ll come back in the morning and deal with Mavis.”

“The hell you are!” I shoved his shoulder. “You’re not locking me up anywhere! I’m in this, Owen! I’m at least going to help get myself out of it. And what about Tess? I still don’t know if she’s in danger.”

“I don’t care about Tess!” He growled the words. Slapping his hands against the wall, he barricaded me between his arms and glared down at me. “I care about you!”

My heart thumped hard against my chest as I stared up at him. Cared about me? How had that happened? I opened my mouth and shut it, not sure how to respond.

 “Damn it. In a few short days you’ve turned my entire life upside down. You’re everything I’ve always avoided.” His words were quiet, but there was a desperation underlining them. “You’re too good for me and I’m the death of everything that makes you perfect. You should be running in the opposite direction and instead you look at me with those big eyes and easy smile and I…” He shook his head as if lost.

“Owen.” My stomach clenched tightly as my mind tried to understand what he was telling me. “I care about you, too.”

“I’m wrong for you, Ava, but damn if I can help the way I feel.” His hands moved to cup my face and his lips touched mine in a fierce declaration of need.

TAA Quiz Graphic Final  


A great mix of fun and suspense, this book was an absolute delight.

I enjoyed getting to know the characters and was extremely intrigued by Owen and his profession. The event that brought him and Ava together only fuelled my need to know more, and as the story developed so the more twisted it became. With the deadly underworld on their heels, they found themselves fighting to survive while trying to figure out what exactly was going on between them.

I liked that their blossoming romance wasn’t what drove this story. It was an important factor that shaped them the deeper they fell, but their mission to put an end to the chaos was first and foremost on their minds.

I really loved Ava. She was sass and sweetness all rolled into one, and she really had some witty thoughts that made me smile. She seemed to take everything in her stride, realizing that she had to stay strong if it meant helping uncover a sick and twisted organization. Mavis was another great character. She was kickass and never apologized for being who she was. I loved her fierceness.

This book was exciting, and with some added humour and romance it was an all round great read.
