Book Review: Killing Sarai

Killing Sarai (In the Company of Killers #1) by J.A. Redmerski: 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.

Lori's thoughts: Lately, I've been trying to get away from all of the cookie-cutter bad boy/good girl contemporary romance stories -- in search of something different. As a result, I've been able to find some extremely well-written books with edgy, yet, different story lines. I like bad boys, but Victor takes bad boy to whole new level. He is a killer for hire. I admire Sarai because she is tough and gutsy in spite of, or perhaps because of everything she has been through. She learns soon, she has nothing to lose and doesn't care what happens to her because wherever she winds up will be better than what she has endured in her young life. The chemistry between Victor and Sarai is palpable, though for most of the book, he is not your typical, swoon-worthy hero. But in Sarai's eyes, he is her hero, and that's all that matters. I look forward to reading the next books in this series.
