5 Star Review

This is a book full of suspense with an dark romance that is full of graphic scences of violence. So if you want a light romance this isn’t that book. It is a twisted story of a Katya who sister was brutally murdered while she was working undercover and no one seems to care and Katya wants justice for her sister. Katya family also die in a car accident that seems very suspicious especially since again noone wants to take any action. Katya travels to America to find justice for her family. She is following the man she feels could be responsible and wants to uncover the truth.

Is there a line she won’t cross?

Katya meets the handsome Ethan who she spends an magical night with on her way to America but he disappears leaving her to believe it didn’t matter much to him. Katya quickly gets caught in a dangerous  game, stuck between the demands of two men. Katya just wants the truth and will do anything to get it.  Ethan, the stranger from Paris is  an FBI agent.  He wants to get the bad guy but will that help Katya get the truth?  Aleksei, an dangerous man who if she gets close enough too,  she can hopeful discovered what happened to her family. But the closers she gets to Aleksei the more she falls for him. The line is blurred. Will she cross it? Will she give up justice for her family at a chance to be happy with Aleksei. She is dangling the line and her quest for justice could be her demise. What will she do and what line she cross?

This was a very  interesting read that was a lot more than a romance novel. There are dark characters that are more complex and it makes figuring out whats going to happen next thrilling. Its full of suspense. I love how Katya fights within herself to determine what path she should choose especially when she is battling between justice for her family or letting go of that path for fear of her own demise and her feelings for the men in her life. She so deep in that her next move could be fatal. What will she do?  You must read this twisted tale to seek the answers.
