He killed her once…
Throat slashed and left for dead next to her murdered father, a thirteen-year-old girl vows to hunt down the man who did this to them—Solomon Tutuola. Now grown, bounty hunter Cat Dupree lets nothing— or no one—stand in the way of that deadly promise.
Not even her lover, Wilson McKay.
Their sexually charged encounters leave McKay wanting more, but Cat is determined to keep her distance. She doesn’t need a man making emotional demands, not now, when revenge is near.
Suspecting that Tutuola is still alive, despite witnessing the horrific explosion that should have killed him, Cat follows a dangerous money trail to Mexico, swearing not to return until she’s certain Tutuola is dead—even if it means destroying her very soul….
Review: I got to the end of this one and the first words that popped into my head were, ‘uh, what?’
I thought the book was pretty good. It continues right from the ending of the first book, Nine Lives, so if you haven’t read it, you might want to read that one first.
Same characters, some new. I really liked Wilson’s family. Remind me very much of my own. And I’m glad Cat realized what she now has.
*Spoiler Alert* Don’t read the underlined unless you have read this book! I thought her revenge was going a little far for me. Not that she got it, but how it came about. I don’t know… I just don’t think I’ve read a character go so far before. But then again, if she hadn’t had the crap kicked out of her, Wilson wouldn’t have had an excuse to take her home to his family. So I guess that evens each event out.
I rooted for Cat and Wilson; Cat – so she could finally put the past behind her, and Wilson – so that he’d have Cat right where he wanted her, right where she needed to be.
Now, however, the ending was rushed, and I loathe a rushed ending. And with what happens – okay, I’m sorry, but had I been the character, I’d have kicked the author’s butt. After all the crap that Cat had been through, for the author to just throw that part in there … I thought Cat deserved better. (shrug) Read for yourself and let me know if you agree with me.
