We get that Rikki was conflicted about Misha and her attraction to him but we didn’t need constant clarification! I loved the world that Kris DeLake a. She becomes convinced that he’s trying to kill her, as well, and drugs him so she can escape the cruise ship. I understood that Rikki had justifiable reasons for being attracted to Misha and when she realized who he was, how horrified she was by that.
It made me want to linger there and see in more detail how anyone lived in such shadows. This was a story where the character creation was good. This review originally posted on my blog, drey’s library. If you are expecting a high pace, action packed space adventure, this book is not for you.
Getting caught with a dead body at your feet isn’t exactly an assassin’s first choice. I really liked how similar Skye and John were, they had some much in common, including their jobs and how they felt about the people they went after.

The loving was pretty lame too, come to think of it. Though the premise behind the story had a lot of potential one of the reasons I was drawn to it in the first placeit fell short of those expectations, at least for me. What neither one of them expects is the combustible chemistry between them. The different physical reactions we have to a kiss.
When all the cards fall and lives are both saved and lost, the final outcome facing Skye and Jack seems like aasassins might tear them apart rather than bring them together. Feb 15, Jenn rated it really liked it. Originally posted at http: What he does know is that Rikki doesn’t follow the rules he lives by.
I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway, so I really wanted to be able to give it a rave review! I thought it was a fun sci fi romance, though it did have some flaws.
Now her plans for a clean kill assaszins a quick getaway have hit a snag – especially when she finds out exactly who Misha really is There are no discussion topics on this book yet. The kkris has a sexy feel to it that I absolutely love. Don’t call the National Organization of Women on me.
