I killed my first man at the age of twelve. I've been killing ever since. I thought it was all I lived for…until Abby. 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.
“We need to talk.”
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.”
4.5 stars Ella Sheridan is fast becoming a one-click author for me. I fell in love with both Levi and Abby in Assassin’s Mark and I am thrilled that their story continues in Assassin’s Prey. This romantic suspense is sure to keep you on your toes as it is full intrigue, action, and some scorching chemistry between our favorite assassin and the ever fiesty Abby.
Levi remains a strong alpha hero who is “the assassin, the lover, the brother” that I loved in the previous book.. He is possessive of Abby, but he fears that he will destroy her. I admire how loyal and protective he is towards Abby and towards his younger brothers. Abby remains a strong heroine who is definitely no doormat. I feel for her because her life is turned upside down with all that goes on in the book and also because Levi doesn’t always give all of himself to her. Nonetheless, her love for him never waivers. These two make such a great couple.
Assassin’s Prey is told entirely from Levi’s POV and I do wish that there were a few chapters from Abby’s as I would love to get into her head. I loved reading more about Eli and Remi and I hope that these two sexy, complex characters get their own books. This book has an engaging plot and moves at a great pace. There is the mystery of who is after them and why and it was entertaining to see how it all was revealed. There were moments when I gasped and struggled not to throw my kindle and other moments where I thought my kindle would spontaneously combust from the hot scenes between Levi and Abby. Overall, I really enjoyed this romantic suspense. There is a HEA with no cheating and no cliffhanger. I received Assassin’s Prey for free and I am really looking forward to reading more works by this author.
