ARC received in exchange for an honest review.
Wow, I’m really surprised by how good this book turned out to be. I, as per usual nowadays, went into reading it completely blank. I think that’s my new way of reading books. If the cover fits… Anyway, this is a solid four star read, that’s for sure. The plot has such great dynamic and flow, we get to see throuout the whole book what happened in the past and how that still affects each of Sophia team member that was back then kidnapped and tortured. She has such an amazing family and team that supports her all the way, even when demons from the past threaten to undo all the good that has happened to her since she got back from the mission. Deadly Hunt is therefore a very appropriate book title. I think the book has a great mix of romance and action/mystery.
As far as the characters go, I liked the main ones the best. Nathan can be an alpha and very possessive an protective but at the same time he cares very deeply. To Sophia he’s such a teddy bear, it was so cute to read his POV and all the feelings he has for her. This book has it’s hilarious moments and both POVs, Nathan and Sophia’s, make tha possible. As for Sophia, she’s one tough cookie! I for sure wouldn’t mess with her, you never know when you’d get your nose broken. She’s very loyal and an amazing friend that you can rely on and that comes to life when one of her friends finally tells her why she’s so changed now. There were characters that I liked more and some I simply couldn’t even stand. From being fake to being just a horrible person. Anyhow, I think I liked Sophia’s family the most and I wonder if we’ll get their stories, too. I would definitely read them. 🙂
“You ok Soph? You don’t look good.” I look to Sam when he asks me, he looks tired, and he also looks worried.
“I don’t understand Sam, why am I the only one he’s after? I mean we were all in that cell, we were all subjected to torture. So what makes me so fucking special?” I ask and my façade crumbles. I’m crying now, I have never cried in front of them before, not even when I was being tortured. It’s Sam that walks over to me and hugs me, trying to stop me crying.
“Soph, he’s after you because he physically tortured you, you were fucking amazing and you didn’t break once. He’s after you because he failed. Yes, you’re special; you’re special to us, because we all love you. We all have your back, and this fucking asshole isn’t going to touch you again.” The rest of the guys are nodding.
“He’s right Soph, we have your back.” That’s all Sarge says, he walks into the kitchen, comes back with a beer for everyone, I on the other hand get given a glass of water. Sarge smirks and winks at me, the ass.
We’re strategizing, figuring out our plan of attack, we want to go in on the offensive. We want him on the back foot not us.
BOUT THE AUTHOR
KL Humphreys was born in London, England but now lives in Ireland with the love of her life. In a way, the world has him to thank for her Debut Novel. After years of thinking about writing the story that had been dying to get out of her head, she finally confided in her other half. He gave her an enthusiastic “Go for It!” and she started writing it the very next day.
Miss Humphreys loves music, especially pop, R’n’B and rap and if she’s writing you will find it playing somewhere nearby. She also loves all romance novels but of course, Romantic Suspense is her go to genre. When she isn’t writing it…it’s a good bet she is curled up somewhere reading one. If she doesn’t have a book in her hand, you might want to check to make sure she isn’t sick. When not reading or writing, she loves to spend time with her loved ones especially while watching a football game (that’s soccer for you Americans)… COME ON YOU GUNNERS!!!!
