Taking Her Innocence is a fast, easy, and sexy read. It’s a dark erotic romance/thriller where the hitman falls for his target. The story starts with a punch. The worldwide bounty for Pepper’s head has hitmen coming at her from all angles, the best and meanest of them all is Viper.
He never hesitates when breaking someone’s neck, but Pepper is a game changer for him. She makes him feel things he’s been taught from a young age to ignore, and he just doesn’t know how to deal.
The story is action-packed from the start and the sex scenes are hot. Taking Her Innocence reminds me of Tom in The Blacklist (one of my fave shows).
Stacey Espino and Sam Crescent do a fantastic job of merging their writing talent in this new series. I’m looking forward to book # 2 in this series as I’m curious whom they’ll redeem next. Bain or Boss, or who knows, someone new!
Taking Her Innocence
Killer of Kings # 1
Stacey Espino, Sam Crescent
Viper has always been a bastard, a nightmare, death for hire. He's known for his swift kills, so he isn't surprised when he's offered seven figures for a new hit. It’s supposed to be a quick find and eliminate. When his mark turns out to be an innocent twenty-year old with big blue eyes, he shouldn’t care one way or another—but he does. Viper wants to keep her for himself.
Pepper’s step-father killed her mother, and she’s been on the run ever since. When a hitman shows up on her doorstep, covered in ink, and strapped with heat, she expects to be his next victim. But she’s wrong. Viper keeps her safe from the mercenaries hoping to cash in on the world-wide contract on her head. He’s everything she’s not, but she still finds herself falling hard for her captor.
With the odds against them, and death waiting around every corner, can they find true love in each other? Or is Viper only interested in taking her innocence?
