“When you’re with me, you’re not vulnerable. When you’re with me, you are safe. When you’re with me, you will never be alone. And as for your heart, Sera Lafferty…I’ll make it beat so fast you’ll never feel it ache.”
Sera Lafferty isn’t insane.
She’s always made the smart decisions.
She has a career. A loving sister. The carefully mapped out, peaceful life in Seattle that she’s craved since childhood. So why, then, does she suddenly find herself on a scavenger hunt, traveling across the country with a stranger? And not just any stranger. A maddeningly sexy hitman, who’s been paid to end her life.
His past is shrouded in secrets, and his eyes are filled with ghosts. Sera knows she should head back to Seattle, to sever all ties with her handsome man in black. But leaving him might not just hurt Sera in the end. It might end up getting her killed.
Fix Marcosa damn well knows better.
He’s been focused on his goals ever since the fateful day he swore to avenge his friend’s brutal attack. Booze. Drugs. Violence. Sex. Nothing has distracted him from his mission. But Sera is more potent than alcohol, more addicting than any opiate. She makes the fury in his blood sing. And her body? Her body is utter perfection, and he just can’t keep his hands off it. Or his mouth for that matter.
Fix is determined.
Screw the money. Screw the consequences, and screw anybody stupid enough to stand in his way.
He isn’t going to end Sera Lafferty’s life.
He’s damn well going to save it.

After the cliffhanger at the end of Dirty, I was expecting a wow factor with this book. In my head so many things would happen in this one to lead to the final book. I am not sure that I am completely pleased with where this one went...
This happens a lot lately, for me, with series and trilogies. The first book wow's me, blows me away. Then the next book or books I feel a little underwhelmed. I am really hoping the final book picks back up and leaves me feeling a little more pleased.
I don't really understand why the book went the direction it went. How is this direction going to get to the who and why? I feel like they should have gone in another direction to make the questions did a little deeper in my mind. If I am being honest, not a whole lot even happens in this book. It felt like a placeholder for the rest of the story.
I am just going to throw it out there. Too much unnecessary sex in this one. This book focused more on the sex between these two than the mystery of who and why. I found myself skimming and eye rolling a little too much for my liking. I also lost their chemistry in this book. It wasn't about their chemistry anymore, instead about them getting off. I found myself struggling in this one.
Even though I wasn't overjoyed with this book, I am still left wanting all of the answers. I will be reading the final book soon. I am hoping it gives me all of the things like the first book did.
