Where Evil Waits by Kate Brady
Contemporary, Romantic Suspense, Atlanta Georgia
Kara Chandler is a special prosecutor that is very good at the job she does. Maybe a little too good as a mastermind that is homicidal has vowed to kill everyone she cares about and also Kara, herself. She is desperate to save herself and her son and the only way she sees to do that is by seeking out cartel hit man, Luke Varon. The last time she dealt with him was when she was prosecuting him and watched him beat the system and escape going to prison. He is also the only man that can possibly keep her alive.
Luke Varon isn’t quite what he appears to be. He has spent years in the criminal underworld and he is seeking revenge and redemption. Though when he sees the very real fear in Kara’s eyes he can’t just let it go. People around her are being murdered and he may be the only one that can uncover the killer’s motives before it is too late. As the danger closes in on them, Kara and Luke must trust each other with their darkest secrets before the evil hunting them can kill them both.
This is a great romantic suspense with some psychological elements thrown in. This one will take readers on a lot of twists and turns before the truth finally comes out in the end. The story proves to be very hard to put down as the reader will want to find out the why behind it all. The action is pretty much nonstop and the story proves to be very fast paced and intriguing. The characters and plot are very well written and believable. This is part of a series but the story can easily be read as a standalone. Though if the reader starts with this one it will have the reader wanting to read the rest of the series to see if the others are as good as this one. This story is also one that once the reader finishes they will find the story staying with them for a while to come.
I give this one 5 red roses
