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…

A story about a girl in captivity that escaped only to find herself in much bigger trouble. This book has this certain pull that you cannot put it down. You can try and get away but it will make you come back. It’s like you yourself are in captivity with Sarai. I loved how it was written. I appreciated that it had 2 POVS because it gave me more insight on what they were feeling toward each other. I love Victor! He has this air of loyalty that will fight for you till the end. I love Sarai but as normal as she can be she still needs to  be able to stand on her own two feet. Good first book! Looking forward to the next book. ❤
