Title: Killing Sarai
Series: In The Company Of Killers
Author: J.A. Redmerski
Genre: New Adult/ Romantic Suspense


Sarai was only fourteen when her mother uprooted her to live in Mexico with a notorious drug lord. Over time she forgot what it was like to live a normal life, but she never let go of her hope to escape the compound where she has been held for the past nine years.

Victor is a cold-blooded assassin who, like Sarai, has known only death and violence since he was a young boy. When Victor arrives at the compound to collect details and payment for a hit, Sarai sees him as her only opportunity for escape. But things don’t go as planned and instead of finding transport back to Tucson, she finds herself free from one dangerous man and caught in the clutches of another.

While on the run, Victor strays from his primal nature as he succumbs to his conscience and resolves to help Sarai. As they grow closer, he finds himself willing to risk everything to keep her alive; even his relationship with his devoted brother and liaison, Niklas, who now like everyone else wants Sarai dead.

As Victor and Sarai slowly build a trust, the differences between them seem to lessen, and an unlikely attraction intensifies. But Victor’s brutal skills and experience may not be enough in the end to save her, as the power she unknowingly holds over him may ultimately be what gets her killed.

This is their story…

My Review.

3.5 stars! 

This book has been on my radar for a long ass time, so when i felt the urge to read some romantic suspense this is the one i went for.  

This is the story of Sarai, when she was fourteen her lowlife mother gave her over to notorious drug lord and human trafficker, Javier. Javier believes himself to be in love with Sarai, he treats her better than the other girls in his compound and she's seen as his. He owns her, it's isn't love he has for her, its obsession and he'll do anything to keep her.  But after being his prisoner for nine years, Sarai wants out and she'll do just about anything to get what she wants. Her escape comes in the form of Victor, an American assassin. Jumping in his car Saria hitches a ride out of the compound to what she hopes will be her freedom. But she's wrong, Javier 'loves' Sarai and will do anything to get her back. 

Hunted by her former captor, Sarai takes off on a dark and dangerous journey with Victor, full of twists and turns. Read the blurb, you might think you know where this story will end but let me tell you now. You're wrong. What you expect to happen gets flipped on it's ass and runs in the other direction leaving you in a state of shock. 

I really did enjoy this story, it was high in action, lust, drama, twist and turns and shocking epicness! Alas i did have a few issues with the story and they come in the form of Sarai... 
She drove me fucking crazy, annoyed the freakin' crap outta me! Honestly i couldn't connect with her because she just acted so much like a child a lot of the time and her whining drove me fucking mental. 

This story is told from dual POV, Sarai and Victor and you are able to tell who's POV it is from the writing, which i really liked. The only thing was there were times when i found the writing and dialog to be pretty robotic and not flowing the way it should.

Overall if your looking for some action, and suspense with some hotness thrown in there give this one a go! It's first in an on going series that shows a lot of promise... honestly i just can't wait for Fredrik's story who we meet in this book but get a lot more from in book two.
