New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones returns with the second book in her electrifying series featuring Lilah Love, an FBI profiler who doesn’t fight her dark side—she embraces it.
It’s Lilah Love’s job to inhabit a killer’s mind. The unapologetically tough FBI profiler is very comfortable there. But her latest case is making her head spin. It’s a string of brutal assassinations carried out across the country, each tied to a mysterious tattoo. Body by body, she’s followed the clues all the way back to her hometown. And every step of the way, the killer has been following her.
Here, beneath the glamour of the privileged Hamptons community, is a secret long buried but never forgotten. It’s bigger than Lilah. It’s powerful enough to escape the reach of the FBI. And it’s more personal than anyone can imagine. Because it’s hiding in Lilah’s own past. To fight it, she’s forced to turn to her lethally tempting ex, Kane Mendez. He’s an expert at bringing out Lilah’s darkest impulses. If she plans to survive, she’s going to need them.

"There's no such thing as a coincidence."
Thank you Lisa Renee Jones for the recap at the beginning of Murder Girl to refresh my memory. With so many characters and behind the scenes scenarios to keep straight it was much appreciated. It didn't take me long at all to become totally immersed and back up to speed, sharpening my profiler skills and learning a few new tricks from 'Agent-fucking-Love' who doesn't mess around. She takes her job, her secrets, and her chocolate very seriously.
I don't know how many books there will be in the Lilah Love series, but the deeper I get, the more intriguing it becomes. Just when I think we've turned a corner and I've figured things out, then something new happens and I'm left scratching my head, back to square one. I've got my suspicions and persons of interest who I'd like to stalk, but Lilah has more experience so I'll just keep tagging along with her. I know she's got my back, and she's got Cujo.
Kane has a soft spot for Lilah and he lets her get away with things that nobody else would even attempt. He's very well known and whether he actually dabbles in the family business or not I'm not sure. One thing I am sure of is that he could have any woman, except her, but it's her he wants. He assures her that he always tells the truth, but does he tell her everything? How much is he holding back to protect her? No really, I was hoping you could tell me.
At this point, I have more questions than answers. But one thing I know for sure is that the chemistry between Kane and Lilah is scorching. I have no idea how she managed to walk away from this man for two years but I can assure you that the distance did not diminish the sparks that fly between them. If it wasn't for the conflict of interest regarding their chosen careers I'm sure all their problems could be solved between the sheets. And I'm not denying that I mentally urged them to try that method of conflict resolution. I was sure that if it didn't work by then they wouldn't care.
As even more players in this deadly game start coming out of the woodwork, the suspense builds. It's hard to tell who the good guys are, or if there are any. Lilah is starting to question herself and what lengths she's willing to go to in this game of cat and mouse. She's letting her dark side come out to play and finds herself reluctant to put it back in its place. As she struggles to figure out who her enemies are, she also struggles to accept who isn't. The one who seems to always be there when she needs him, and even when she doesn't. How much longer will she be able to resist the pull of attraction before she accepts the release he offers?
Woo Hoo! What a mind-bending ball of fun this story is. I love trying to figure things out and it's so exciting when I'm occasionally right with my guesses. I throw myself right into the drama and don't come out until I've turned the last page. And after turning this last page, I don't have my answers and I'm going back for more. The line forms here...
