From the author of the New York Times, USA Today & Wall Street Journal bestselling novel, THE EDGE OF NEVER, comes a story of passion and survival…
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…

I raise the gun a little higher, settling the barrel at the back of her head, but not touching it. I don’t want her to be afraid before she dies and although I know she fears nothing, death is something we all fear in our final moment even if only the smallest part of us is conscious of it. I don’t want her to fear it at all and she can’t if she doesn’t know that it’s happening.
“How old were you when you became what you are?” she asks.
Caught off guard by the question and maybe more-so by the shifting of the mood, I hesitate before answering.
“I was nine.”
She sniffles and wipes her eyes with the hand near her cheek.
“You were very young,” she goes on. “I guess in a way like me, you never had a chance to live a life of your choosing. I guess maybe we aren’t really so different from each other.” She pauses. “Except I might be more like your brother than I care to admit. He’s as angry as I am.”
I release my finger from the trigger and slowly, so she doesn’t know, move the barrel away from the back of her head.
“It must’ve been hard growing up with Niklas,” she says.
I set the gun back on the bed next to me and before I know what I’m doing I’m cradling the back of her head in my hand again.
Have you ever wondered if there is a underground order in this world that calls the shots and can off people at any given time? Well victor is the number one hit man of the order trained since he was 8 or 9 years old. Ya wow!! What was suppose to be a easy in and out meeting with one of mexicos biggest drug lords goes to hell in a hand basket. He leaves only to find a gun being pointed at his head by a scared fragile girl hiding in his car. Hi I'm Sarai, I was kidnapped from the US when I was 14 and your going to help me escape. Ya it pretty much went like that. What a freaking introduction lol!
Sarai and victors journey was drama filled and pure utter craziness. Victor helped Sarai escape one nightmare but could he really turn her loose in a world she was numb to? I mean you hear all the time that people are born killers but can being raised in a traumatic environment turn a child into a killer? Well Sarai's life was headed down the road of no return and victor sensed this. This hardcore killing machine had a soft spot when it came to Sarai and she was flat out in love with him. Victor and Sarai's story was bitter sweet. I was rooting for them the whole book. They both showed each other how to LIVE again and what was really worth living for.
I need book 2 of this love story! I really enjoyed this book.
