Stacey Espino and Sam Crescent keep the action going with the latest release in their Killer of Kings series. Killian might be a man but he has a set of his own set of morals that he strictly adheres to. As his distant and recent past is revealed his characteristics becomes more and more valid and understandable. June is a sweet, but tired woman. She is a single-minded single-mother and seeing her try so hard to make a good life for her son with her limited resources made me both happy and sad. Upset about her situation but hopeful knowing she would find a way to make things better. This series does such a fantastic job of taking these scandalously, notorious killers and showcasing them as heroes, full of heat and heart as well as the prolific hunters they are. The storyline is a solid one that admittedly had me grimacing at moments as well as near sobbing at others. This story was like a roller coaster ride and I was so happy to catch up with characters from the previous stories. If you are looking for a story that is not only entertaining but thought provoking this is a good choice. It's passionate and provoking and if you're like me you'll become completely immersed.
The Story: Killian might be a killer, a damn good one but he only takes out men as far as he's concerned women and children are definitely off limits. When he discovers he has a son and someone has put out a hit on the mother and child he must not only keep them safe for the present but convince them he will do so for the rest of their lives.
He's a killer. She's raising his son. He's coming back for both of them.
June's used to living life in survival mode. With no family support or husband, it's been up to her to raise her ten-year-old son on her own. It's not easy, especially when she has a living reminder of the only man she ever loved. But that asshole walked out on her without warning, leaving her brokenhearted and pregnant. When he reappears back into her life a decade later, she's no longer a naive young girl, and not ready to throw herself into his arms—no matter how tempting that might be.
Killian's biggest regret in life is falling in love on the job. It wasn't supposed to happen, and the only honorable thing he could do was walk away. Everything he'd told June was a lie, and she deserved better than a hitman for hire. When they cross paths years later, he's blindsided when he discovers he's a father. It's a challenge to earn June's love and trust after the lies and disappearing act, but he's not letting her go this time. He'll prove to her in more ways than one that she's his woman. When an unknown threat puts a hit out on Killian's new family, the Irish assassin is ready to send them all to hell in the name of love.
