Sarai was only fourteen when her mother uprooted her to live in Mexico with a notorious drug lord. Over time she forgot what it was like to live a normal life, but she never let go of her hope to escape the compound where she has been held for the past nine years.
Victor is a cold-blooded assassin who, like Sarai, has known only death and violence since he was a young boy. When Victor arrives at the compound to collect details and payment for a hit, Sarai sees him as her only opportunity for escape. But things don’t go as planned and instead of finding transport back to Tucson, she finds herself free from one dangerous man and caught in the clutches of another.
While on the run, Victor strays from his primal nature as he succumbs to his conscience and resolves to help Sarai. As they grow closer, he finds himself willing to risk everything to keep her alive; even his relationship with his devoted brother and liaison, Niklas, who now like everyone else wants Sarai dead.
As Victor and Sarai slowly build a trust, the differences between them seem to lessen, and an unlikely attraction intensifies. But Victor’s brutal skills and experience may not be enough in the end to save her, as the power she unknowingly holds over him may ultimately be what gets her killed.
This is their story…

Have you ever been so into a story that it feels like it’s your life? You’re so lost in every word that your real life is not real anymore? That’s this book! I WAS LOST IN IT! I was so lost in it that I forgot to take notes for this blog as to why you should read it. I could not put it down, so I am going to wing this review! LOL! Besides the story that was amazing, the writing was perfect! The author did not go on and on with details of clothes and unnecessary crap. I hate that. It’s a huge pet peeve of mine. She gave us details that were important to the story and sprinkled it with action and an underlying building of romance. All the makings of a great book! The writing is so great that you don’t miss the lack of actual sex (don’t worry, it does happen eventually) because the build-up and sexual tension is perfect. Then the sex is no eye-rolling sweet scene but stays true to the characters in every movement! Read this book and come back and let me know what you think. The summary may sound like other books you have read, but it is not. I read a lot of books, and this one ranks right up there, with its original plot line and love for the characters! I actually miss Victor and Sarai! I need book 2!!
