Dirty, Dark, and Deadly, #2
This is a SERIES. This is BOOK TWO.
“Secrets keep the darkness alive,” Harper tells me. But that’s not how I see it at all. Secrets keep me alive. The truth is overrated. Honesty is never the best policy. And everything you know absolutely can hurt you.
The contracts I fulfill are just agreements. Death is a business deal. Secrets are currency in my world. I pay my debts with them. I feed on them. They ground me in the present and they promise me a future. I’ve lived a life filled with secrets for so long—I forgot what it’s like to… feel.
Until I saw Harper. Until I saw how beautiful she’s become. How perfect, and pure, and innocent of all the ugly that goes on around her. And that dirty promise I refused the night her father turned me into a killer twelve years ago is suddenly on the table again.
Harper can be mine. No—Harper will be mine. All I have to do is complete the mission.
Death is a business deal.
JA never slacks in the suspense and angst department. Harper and James are back with a sidekick, Sasha, or is she? You never know with all the twists and turns JA dishes out that keep you guessing, that keep the characters guessing. Secrets, jobs, deals, revenge…when will they get their answers. Who’s controlling the plays, the moves? Who can they trust? Harper and James continue to be sensual and communicate effectively in a physical manner, but how do they communicate with their words when so many secrets and unknowns are involved? The back and forth deterred me at times because I wanted the answers. I know this is part of the journey but the whiplash of belief and then lack of left me flustered and consumed time where I felt action could’ve been taken. But the make-up from the arguing was hot, and the openness in communication allowed a inside picture to their minds and thought processes. The ending is a cliffhanger that will have me coming back for more!! Give this a try and continue your James crush!! Rating: 4 stars
