I am the thing that goes bump in the night. I am a liar, a protector...a killer...I am Noah Blake.
There is only one light in my darkness, one bright ray in the storm of my life. Lucia DeMarco. And I’ll do anything for her. Anything except show her who I really am...an assassin. Well, former assassin. I don’t really do that anymore...usually.
It would be easier if she didn’t call me names. Asshole, control freak…shameless. It would also be easier if she didn’t look at me with those trusting gray eyes. If I didn’t dream about the perfect curve of her — never mind all that. The point is she’s digging into my world, my secrets, and it’s going to get her killed.
But first, we have another more immediate concern. Lucia is going on a date—With someone else...
Review by: Jennifer
Noah spends most of his life protecting Lucia, pretty much from herself and her would be dates, but he protects her none the less. He doesn't feel that she needs to know all that he does for her, and treats her like a little sister, at least that's what he tells himself. Taking on the protector roll since Lucia's brother died just seemed like the right thing, but as much as he tries to keep his feelings to himself, the harder it gets.
Lucia is in love with Noah, but he never shows that he thinks of her as anything other than an obligation, but when one moment leads to their first kiss, can Noah stop things from happening once that door is open? What happens when Lucia finds out just how much Noah is keeping from her? Wll she be able to forgive him?
So this was the beginning of Noah and Lucia's story, we get a bit of drama and violence and a sexy time or two. It's an ok story, as this is a trilogy of course it ends in a cliffy. I give this 3.5 stars.
NYT & USA Today Bestselling author M. Malone lives in the Washington, DC metro area with her three favorite guys, her husband and their two sons. She holds a Master's degree in Business from a prestigious college that would no doubt be scandalized at how she's using her expensive education.
Independently published, she has sold more than 1/2 million ebooks in her two series THE ALEXANDERS and BLUE-COLLAR BILLIONAIRES. Since starting her indie journey in 2011 with the runaway bestselling novella "Teasing Trent", her work has appeared on the New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists more than a dozen times.
She's now a full-time writer and spends 99.8% of her time in her pajamas.
USA Today Best Seller, Nana Malone's love of all things romance and adventure started with a tattered romantic suspense she "borrowed" from her cousin.
It was a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana, and Nana was a precocious thirteen. She's been in love with kick butt heroines ever since. With her overactive imagination, and channeling her inner Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own characters.
While she waits for her chance at a job as a ninja assassin, in the meantime Nana works out her drama, passion and sass with fictional characters every bit as sassy and kick butt as she thinks she is.
