4.5 stars The Assassin’s Mark is an entertaining, fast-paced, dark romantic suspense. Secrets are revealed and there are twists and turns that will keep you on your toes. This book is full of action, intrigue, and a whole lot of steam! Seriously, my kindle was smoking from the heat level between alpha bad boy Levi and Abby.
Can one fall in love with an assassin - a killer who believes he doesn’t feel emotions? Absolutely! Levi is a character that you cannot help but love. He is out for revenge and he is using Abby to achieve it. What he didn’t expect was to fall in love with her. I love how he firmly believes that he doesn’t feel emotions, but his fierce love for his brothers and his protectiveness towards them and Abby says otherwise. He had a difficult childhood that broke my heart and it is evident how it has shaped him.
Abby is a likable character. She is used as a pawn in an intricate political play with her father and as Levi’s pawn for revenge yet she stands up for herself and fights. Her and Levi fit well together and have explosive chemistry. This book is told entirely from Abby’s POV and I do wish that there were some chapters told from Levi’s. I would have loved to see just what was going on in that mind of his.
Levi’s younger brothers, Remi and Eli make great secondary characters and I hope that they each get their own book. Overall, I loved Assassin’s Mark as the plot is entertaining, the characters are well-developed and likable, and there is the perfect balance of intrigue, action, and steam. There is no cliffhanger, but they will be featured in this author’s next book - Assassin’s Prey. I received this book from Give Me Books.
Assassin’s Mark picks up where The Assassin leaves off. Abby is kidnapped by Levi for revenge against Abby’s father, the next Governor of Georgia. Things don’t always goes as planned and falling for Abby was certainly not in the plan. As with the prequel, Assassin’s Mark is fast paced with steamy scenes.
