Killing Sarai - J.A. Redmerski

Synopsis:

 

Sarai was only fourteen when her mother uprooted her to live in Mexico with a notorious drug lord. Over time she forgot what it was like to live a normal life, but she never let go of her hope to escape the compound where she has been held for the past nine years.

Victor is a cold-blooded assassin who, like Sarai, has known only death and violence since he was a young boy. When Victor arrives at the compound to collect details and payment for a hit, Sarai sees him as her only opportunity for escape. But things don’t go as planned and instead of finding transport back to Tucson, she finds herself free from one dangerous man and caught in the clutches of another.

While on the run, Victor strays from his primal nature as he succumbs to his conscience and resolves to help Sarai. As they grow closer, he finds himself willing to risk everything to keep her alive; even his relationship with his devoted brother and liaison, Niklas, who now like everyone else wants Sarai dead.

As Victor and Sarai slowly build a trust, the differences between them seem to lessen, and an unlikely attraction intensifies. But Victor’s brutal skills and experience may not be enough in the end to save her, as the power she unknowingly holds over him may ultimately be what gets her killed.

This is their story…

 

Killing Sarai by J. A. Redmerski is the second book I have read by this author.  I loved Edge of Never for it's sweetness and steamy sex scenes.  This book was really good, completely different form Edge of Never (there is an excerpt at the end of the book for Edge of Always).  This story was not nearly so sweet but it still tugs at the heart strings.  I really felt for Sarai and her situation, and for Victor and his situation.  Both are victims of circumstance, and giving their best with what they been dealt in this life.

 

The Ending, while not a cliffhanger, does leave you anticipating the next book. 

 

This story is for 17+, because of the violence and sexual situations.
