A protector from evil. One who without fear will lead you safely through darkness.
Cold and ruthless. A CARTEL who cares only for revenge and glory.
My name is Nina Cross, and I’m the Los Santos’s newest prey. Determined to prove my partners innocence and avenge his violent death, I stumbled naively into the spider’s web. Tangled with lies and hunted for truth I was shadowed with each step I took. That was until one man, relentless in his touch and his desire threatened to bring me to my knees in ways I both craved and feared.
Jair Ruiz. Powerful, brooding and confident and not at all who he seems. He has me in his sights and has every intention of toying with his newest target while fighting to keep us both alive.
When the FBI turns it back on you and Los Santos cartel have already dug your grave, who is there left to trust?
Only one man. A saviour.
But if I look my saint in the eye and all I see is the devil…do I run?
This is an action packed book filled with suspense, excitement, and grit. Readers who love a book filled with angst, undeniable lust, and overall thrills should definitely consider picking up this book. I was hooked to this almost immediately and couldn’t let go of the book until I was finished.
This story is about an FBI woman named Nina who, after trying to uncover the truth behind her partner’s murder, suddenly becomes caught up in a war between the FBI and the Los Santos Cartel. Nina begins to realize just how much danger she is in and turns to someone very unexpected- Jair Ruiz. Ruiz is an unexpected protector because she clearly states he is not the man who should be trusted. But for some reason, Nina feels a pull toward him anyway. Not too long after, the two get even closer. And some very hot and sexy scenes ensue.
Readers should be warned that they will have some questions in regarding what happens in this story at the end. However, it isn’t one of those cliffhangers that leave you extremely upset to have to wait for. I feel the author ended this one in a great way that leaves us reads anxious about the second book, but not enough to dislike this one because of it!
Overall, this is a fantastic book. If you enjoy darker reads with twists, turns, grit, angst, and spice than I suggest picking this one up. You won’t be disappointed!
