Justice “Grey” Greystone was fired from the FBI for insubordination. Now the FBI wants him to use his renegade skills to take down a serial killer who’s above the law. To trap the Lion, Grey will need to send the perfect woman undercover.
Sydney Banfield runs a women’s shelter and bends the law daily to help victims of abuse escape their painful lives. Three of the women she’s recruited for government jobs have become victims of the Lion. If Syd has her way, the vicious killer will never touch another woman again.
Grey and Sydney set a trap—with Sydney as the sexy bait—but the Lion adds a complex twist to his homicidal agenda. With Sydney’s life on the line, Grey must race against the clock to catch a killer who’s as unstoppable as he is evil.
Action packed, intense, energetic fist book of the series.
The villain in this story is smart, pure evil, the type to make your skin crawl and gives you nightmares.
Gray and Sydney are both a bit broken by their past, dealing with their issues alone, not trusting anyone to share the burden of their history, until they meet each other. The attraction is immediate, but at first Sydney uses her old survival tactics against Gray. The journey teaches them to trust in each other, and watching them fall in love is rather sweet. The heat level is moderate, and fits well with the storyline.
The banter between them is delightful and refreshing amongst all the angst of the chase after the serial killer.
The hunt is grueling and brutal, they have to take a step into the world that will hunt them with its nastiness and maliciousness.
Absolutely full of action, with circumstances constantly changing, mixed with alluring romance, and interesting secondary characters, makes this a refreshing and entertaining tale. Four shiny spoons for this one. I'll keep following this series cause I think this was a jackpot!! Can't wait to download the next one into my Kindle!
