Killing Sarai by JA Redmerski
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
In the Company of Killers #1
Release: June 19, 2013
Length: 326 pages

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

Seriously??? Where was I hiding when all of these great series started?

This book was dark, tragic, action-packed, intense, passionate, and kept me on my toes! I love when a story is unpredictable and Redmerski delivered!!

I really liked the characters. I'm a sucker for an anti-hero. Throw in an anti-heroine... I'm a goner! Sarai endured quite a lot during her captivity and I cannot wait to see what she makes of herself. As for Victor, I'm not even sure what it is about a cold and detached MMC, but I adored him from the start. Every chink in his armor, every hole in his walls made me like him more and more. I lived for his little smiles and smirks. Or the way his eyes would convey his emotions.

The story is about a former captive (Sarai), an assassin (Victor), the sex trade, and lots and lots of killing. I'm excited for the next book!
