killing sarai


✚ ✚ ✚ ✚ ✚

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…

The only complaint I have is..

I wish there were more smuttiness in this book!! Victor is so freaking HOT!! Like insanely!

I was extremely nervous picking up Killing Sarai, only because I'm a sook and darker stories freak me the heck out. I didn't know if my heart could take it, and my mind for when my husband is away at work and I'm sitting in bed wondering if I heard a noise or not..

Thankfully, I had no reason to be afraid. I was sitting on the edge of the couch for this entire read. I didn't put it down. People were talking to me, and I was too locked into this gripping story to pay attention. I was hooked! I was so invested in Sarai, her escape and the survival.

Now, let's get to my favourite.. Victor. Wow. He's intense, complicated, and a very determined man. I have to say, my favourite scene was when he had to chance to blow her brains out.. and instead he put the gun back down and hugged her back. I fell hard. 

J.A. Redmerski managed to write a thrilling mix of suspense, danger with a forbidden romance thrown in. In other words, everything I love in a story! This doesn’t leave off on a cliffhanger, but I was desperate for book two!

It was refreshing to see a female lead that was strong and brave. It's expected, that if a person has had to endure so much and suffer from horrific events, to be broken, scarred for life and discover they have become only a shell of a person. Sarai was not one of those people. She was determined, strong and reluctantly learnt how to adjust to dangerous situations by blocking out her fears and emotions.

I absolutely loved, loved reading this!!
