Series: A Warrior for Her #2
My Rating: ♥♥♥♥
My goal this year has been to read as many new-to-me authors as a I can. I must admit I’m doing a piss poor job of it. Primary because often the hype of the blurb doesn’t actually live up to the book, so I find that I’m getting more and more reluctant. So, I go for the “safe” authors. Having said that, am I glad to have across this book. Absolutely blew my mind away.
We meet Detective Octavio Hernandez gang violence; one gang in particular that he believes are responsible for the disappearance of his sister. As fate would have it, there’s a gang shoot-out at a local bar where this gang hangs out. There she meets a young girl who, it turns out will be the key to defeating this gang afterall.
Faith Donovan has seen more horrendous than anyone should have in her young 21 years of life. Born a mother who wants nothing to do with her, having lived a charmed life in the care of her dad until his sudden death at 6 years old, she moved back to live with her mom, who makes no secret that she wants northing to do with her. When she suddenly finds herself enslaved to this cartel affiliated gang, all she wants is freedom and Octavio may just be the way out.
When she’s taken into custody under protection of Octavio, their relationship quickly moves from detective-witness to something much more intimate.
I love Faith’s strength. Though she’s scared out of her mind, has no reason to trust anyone, she has no qualms in doing the right thing, even at her own expense. And Octavio has decided to protect her with his life, at the risk of his job if necessary. Whatever happens, its clear, he’s not loosing her.
I loved the fast pace of the book. There was a fine balance between giving too much details that the story becomes long-winded and not enough details that you’re left wanting. Normally, I love the gory details. If you’re going to lay out a sex scene I want as much detail of that shit as you can get (not too much), but I found that in this story everything was adequately layout without missing a beat.
This was book 2 of the series so I will be definitely going back to book one and awaiting Roman’s book with baited breath.
