I’d rather face a dozen lethal assassins any night than deal with something as tricky, convoluted, and fragile as my feelings.

But here I am. Gin Blanco, the semi-retired assassin known as the Spider. Hovering outside sexy businessman Owen Grayson’s front door like a nervous teenage girl. One thing I like about Owen: he doesn’t shy away from my past—or my present. And right now I have a bull’s-eye on my forehead.

Cold-blooded Fire elemental Mab Monroe has hired one of the smartest assassins in the business to trap me. Elektra LaFleur is skilled and efficient, with deadly electrical elemental magic as potent as my own Ice and Stone powers. Which means there’s a fifty-fifty chance one of us won’t survive this battle. I intend to kill LaFleur—or die trying—because Mab wants the assassin to take out my baby sister, Detective Bria Coolidge, too.

The only problem is, Bria has no idea I’m her long-lost sibling . . . or that I’m the murderer she’s been chasing through Ashland for weeks. And what Bria doesn’t know just might get us both dead. . . .

Review

Gin is going to have to constantly look over her shoulder. Mab is getting pretty pissed about losing her men to the Spider. The assassin that Mab hires is insane. She takes joy in using her magic to destroy others. She isn’t in it for the money. She’s in for it the glory. She’s also a force to be reckoned with.

Gin definitely has her work cut out for her with Elektra. Not only does she need to keep herself alive, but she also has to keep Bria from falling victim to the assassin. There are definitely a lot of fight scenes where you are rooting Gin on, and others where you’re hoping she gets out of there as soon as possible.

Like her previous book the repetitiveness went on a little long. She’s constantly recounting things that had happened before, and I think without that it would have been a much better book.
