Ethan Blade—assassin extraordinaire, cold-blooded killer, heartless monster, and . . . retiree?
I’ve spent my whole life dealing in death, efficiently eliminating targets while fighting to preserve a sense of self and morality, to avoid becoming as detached and ruthless as my siblings. I thought I had succeeded. Then I met Jack Reardon—contrary, handsome, forgiving, and far too good for the likes of me—and my life was tipped upside down. When he asked me to move in with him, he didn’t specify that I had to quit my job, but I wanted to—for myself, not for him. I should have known it wouldn’t be that easy.
My old instincts—“Ethan Blade”—are soon tempted out of retirement by a job offer I can’t afford to refuse and by an old hook-up of Jack’s he’d be a fool to refuse. While falling prey to my own temptation, Jack struggles with his. Which is precisely when the true danger exposes itself—one of my siblings with no such sense of self or morality. Only pain. And he is prepared to rain it down on me and Jack, unless I can square the Ethan Blade I want to be with the one I need to be, in time to save us both.
We get a whole book book from Ethan’s POV!! Yeah baby!! I was so excited to dive into it. This is the 2nd book from Ethan’s view and while the plot may not be new, it sure felt like it especially since it’s been a while since I read the last book.
Ethan is such a cinnamon roll and I just want to wrap him in a blanket and hug him so bad!! Give him all the hugs! It was like I going through all the action, pain and heartache all over again.
When I found out that we were getting a whole book from Ethan’s POV, I almost died with happiness. I’ve loved from the moment I met him(sorry Jack, I’m sure you understand 😉). We finally understand his thoughts. The depths of his character. I loved this book so much. To say I devoured it would be an understatement.
Can’t wait for the next book! It’s going to be epic!
