“This story is hot in all the right ways and took me to the edge of my seat again and again, delivering in the end.” —New York Times bestselling author Larissa Ione
When a brooding Irishman shows up at the hospital where she works, Kennedy Jefferson realizes her fugues are more than simply lost time. She knows this stranger is a threat—even as her body craves his masterful touch.
Dylan O’Shea is the druid’s assassin charged with finding the single woman who can stop an evil goddess from destruction. He’s searched to find Kennedy for centuries. But Dylan finds himself inexplicably drawn to Kennedy—the woman he’s ordained to kill.
With Samhain fast approaching, duty and desire are on an unstoppable collision course…
This book I enjoyed but didn’t love it.
I really liked the story and it kept me captivated. It was pretty interesting and suspenseful. Had plenty of action, humor and sexy times. It had some nice twits in it.
The only problem I had with the book was unfortunately Kennedy. I really didn’t like her, she was just a little to much for my taste, to over the top with having to prove how she can handle things even when it put not only herself but others in danger. Also some things didn’t make sense when it came to her, for example. In the beginning she has those “blackouts” and has no clue what happened and or happening while it happened but all of the sudden she seemed to know and understand what was happening. I wish that would have been a little more explained. She also seemed a bit to stubborn for her own good many times throughout the book.
Luckily, there were plenty of other charters that made up for Kennedy. I really enjoyed Dylan and even loved him when he let out his humor a bit and was not all that serious. He was great and I really enjoyed how he tried to take things in his own hands and change the outcome for Kennedy and well for him.
His close friends and right hand were also pretty awesome to read. I really enjoyed the whole “brotherhood” theme there. My absolute favorite was Gareth though, not sure why but I liked him the most with his wit and dedication.
Like I said overall I really enjoyed the writing and the story and characters, the only one I didn’t really care for was Kennedy, but they rest were great.
I read a few other books by Kelli and I loved them all, but this one just hit little bit of a nerve with Kennedy. But, that is just me and many other reader might love her.
Overall, I think I will rate it at 3 ½ ★

“Fucking gods and their fickle demands.”
“Right. Oh, wait. That can’t be right, oh great and mighty Ass.”
“It’s short for Assassin. You know, a nickname.”
“It would help if I knew whether that was a term of endearment or if you calling me a ripe goat’s ass.”
