He takes pleasure in tormenting me, chipping away at my defenses as if I’m a toy to be played with. I hate that he continuously reminds me that I’m nothing more than a job. I hate that my body responds to his touch. I hate him.
I’m not a good guy and I don’t pretend to be. Condemn me if you want, I don’t give a fuck. You’re nothing to me. No one is … except her—Max. She’s my target. And I was hired to do a hell of a lot more than protect her … I was hired to kill her.
It should’ve been simple, but it was complicated as hell.
*erotic paranormal romance.
Standalone full-length novel. Come meet the Scars. Scars: Immortal warriors with capabilities derived from the senses: Trackers, Sounders, Healers, Tasters, Visionaries, and the rare Reflectors. They each have what is known as an Ink, a tattoo that can be called life.
Jasper stopped, turned toward me, dragged his eyes down my front then yanked off his black t-shirt and tossed it to me.
I stared at his naked chest that was a hard slab of muscle with tats drawn across his left shoulder to link with the ones on his arm.
“Put it on. You stick out like a fuckin’ cotton candy with those stupid horse sparkles.”
I quickly put it on over top and it hung down to my mid-thigh. The scent of him drew into my lungs and I inhaled deeply with my chin down until I heard his distinct chuckle. Then I wanted to shoot myself in the foot.
Jasper’s hand came around the back of my neck and he jerked me toward him. He cupped my chin with his blade still in his hand so the handle was cold against my jaw. Then he leaned in and before I could take my next breath, his mouth was on mine.
This was a fantastic story. Max is a woman who was held captive most of her life and refuses to be a prisoner again. Jasper is a Scar assassin sent to protect Max...or kill her if things get out of control. Max is a character...she has strength, courage and feistiness. Jasper is at times sweet and at other times a jerk but as the story progressed, I found myself liking him. The building of Max's and Jasper's relationship was filled with angst from day one. The book has a wonderful storyline full of action, adventure, humor and sexual chemistry that drew me in until the very end. There is an amazing cast of secondary characters that I really am looking forward to reading about (hint, hint)! I highly recommend this to readers of paranormal romances! ~Booklover Sue
