What the book has to say:
A cold-blooded killer wants her dead.
After her friend is murdered right before her eyes, Taylor uses her wits to escape with just a bullet wound, thankful to be alive. But now the killer isn’t the only one after her—the cops are, too, and Taylor’s not sure she can trust them—or anybody else in her life in California. She decides to turn to her old friend in Vegas, racing there with just the clothes on her back, only to arrive and realize he’s off on his honeymoon. Desperate, she breaks in and crashes.
A former Marine is determined to protect her.
When former Marine Roman MacNeil finds a gorgeous stranger unconscious and bleeding in his friend’s shower, his first thought is to help her . . . until she tries to knock him out with a vodka bottle. Lucky for Taylor, Roman isn’t a man who goes down easily. When he realizes the trouble she’s in, he’s determined to protect her—whatever it takes. As they’re thrust into a deadly situation they discover an attraction they never bargained for. But a determined killer is closing in, and time may be running out.
What I have to say:
After witnessing her friend's murder Taylor goes on the run and luckily runs into former Marine Roman MacNeil who's determined to protect her no matter what it takes in this exciting romantic suspense.
The reader is thrust right into a deadly situation right along with these strong compelling characters as they struggle with an attraction neither bargained for. The attraction between Taylor and Roman sends sparks flying in every direction and the sex scenes burn up the pages but the relationship has some issues like they both live in different places and...oh yeah there's a killer determined to take Taylor's life. The fast paced and smooth flowing plot keep readers on the edge with lots of suspense, action and passion while Taylor and Roman both demand their share of the attention.
Intense and dangerous situations keep anticipation and excitement high as the danger escalates and the killer becomes desperate. The well orchestrated suspense draws readers in and ensures that they have to know what happens next and the well written scenes and details paint vivid images that bring it all to life and has the reader feeling as if they are part of all the action and since there is never a dull moment in this story...there is no chance for the reader to catch their breath as Roman does everything in his power to keep Taylor alive.
Unexpected twists surprise the reader as well as the characters both with the intrigue and with the romance which provides additional spice to the story. Once again, Katie Reus spins a tale of edge of the seat action and suspense that held me captive from the very beginning and there was no way I could put the story down until I had read every last word and I can't wait to visit The Serafina: Sin City again.
