Servant: The Acceptance

Book 2

Gabrielle Cody has finally accepted her destiny as God's warrior, her only mission to kill horrible monster that pray on innocents. For years now, she's been on her path to doing just that, until she met Detective Luther Cross. There was an unquestionable attraction between these two but Gabrielle was set on not letting Luther derail her from her destiny. He's the one person that can make her feel like a real woman. In Servant: The Acceptance, Gabrielle is living with a bunch of prostitutes and protecting them.
But Luther will definitely not give up on her. He has feelings for her and he worries about her being around streetwalkers, pimps and pretty much criminals. Then someone starts kidnapping and killing streetwalkers and Gabrielle is set on finding the killer and killing him. So while Luther wants to protect her and take her away from such a bad neighborhood, he also has to deal with her mysterious, questionable ways. Will Gabrielle be able to find the killer become he murders another streetwalker? And will Luther finally get Gabrielle to admit that there is something between them?
Gabrielle is definitely unlike any other character I've read. She can be ruthless and cruel yet innocent at the same time. She's rude, yet tries to save lives. Religion plays a big part in this story, God guides her to the monsters she must killed by way of giving her horrible mind-numbing pain. I admit that I'm not a big fan of this side of the story, which is why I was wary to read the book. But I must say that I still like the story very much, there were some funny moments and Gabrielle and Luther really do have some chemistry going on between them. Servant: The Acceptance is really a good read and I enjoyed the plot and character interactions. Especially her friend, Mort, he's so cute and has definitely grown more into himself. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed the book and am glad I read it.
