Book two and the conclusion to the series is coming JUNE 30th!
It’s a liar’s word. No one is ever truly safe.
Daniello still haunted me—in my bed, in my dreams, in a ridiculous notion of a future we would never have.
I was drawn to darkness; and he was the abyss.
My love for him made me flesh and bone—vulnerable.
I was finally a woman with something to lose and would do anything to keep it.
But when my past caught up with my present, it became clear that safe would forever remain an illusion.
Laz was coming for us, his looming darkness a threat to the life I carefully designed.
Armed with hope, and ready for battle, I never imagined the casualties of the war that came to me.
And then I lost all control.
He was a threat to all I had built. A fatal blow to the reputation I had carefully crafted. He would tear my castle apart and ruin my kingdom if I’d let him. Because I loved him. Someone had to love the fucking villain.
It has been nearly two years since I read Camouflage and it took no time at all to jump right back into the crazy and chaotic world that Taylor Ellison and Daniello Di Giovanni reside in. CROSSHAIRS is the explosive and highly erotic conclusion to the ”Predator and Prey” series and let me just say, Kate Stewart delivered one hell of a spectacular finale to this crazy but entertaining story!
Taylor is one seriously badass heroine. This woman was born into a world full of poverty and raised by drug addicted and abusive parents. It was by sheer determination and the strong will of a warrior that she pulled herself out of destitution and made something of herself. But regret and guilt over leaving her little sister behind have always haunted her. Taylor had the chance to rescue her sister and little nephew from a living hell but it didn’t come without any consequences. Her once childhood sweetheart, now turned nemesis is out for revenge and he also happens to be the father of her sister’s baby boy. It would seem that there are quite a few bad guys out to get Taylor and she’s not at all certain that her current lover, Danielo, isn’t one of them.
Daniello and Taylor continue their passionate affair, knowing that it will soon come to an end and that one day they’ll have to say goodbye forever. Neither is willing to open up to the other completely. So many secrets still keep them from committing 100% to what is building between them. Even though Taylor is quite certain that Daniello definitely works outside the law and that being with him could put her and the ones she loves in harm’s way, she can’t seem to let him go.
We are taken back to Taylor’s past where we meet the young Laz and share some tender moments between the childhood sweethearts. It only helped to further cloud my feelings for this man who turned out to be such a low and despicable character later in life. It humanized him and made my heart bleed a bit for his lost soul. Next, we meet through flashbacks, the man who took Taylor out of the trailer park and helped form her into the well-bred socialite with a Harvard education. Roy was an enigma but utterly charismatic. His hot and cold temperament only fueled Taylor’s desire and love for him. I fell for this man as well. Again, Kate Stewart creates a story where I found myself falling for more than one man!
Ultimately the true love of Taylor’s life is the dark, sinfully gorgeous and dangerous Daniello. I couldn’t get enough of him. Taylor wasn’t the only one suffering whenever he would disappear for months at a time! I couldn’t wait for him to reappear in her life when she least expected it.
This series is filled with some incredibly erotic scenes and so much action and nail-biting suspense! There are reveals that you will never see coming! I highly recommend this fabulous series!!!
