Prime Target by Marquita Valentine
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I was caught up in this book from the beginning and thoroughly enjoyed it!! A lot was happening in this book and, while it can be read as a stand-alone, some parts definitely made more sense if you have read her earlier books in the Holland Springs series first. Ms. Valentine does a nice job of filling in one or two missing pieces from the Holland Springs series in this book.
Roman Smith lives a quiet, unassuming life as a bookseller far away from his family, the Bratva, leaving only when hired to assassinate someone on the family's orders. He has a code and only kills those who truly deserve to die. There is a woman in his life, Everly Andrews, to whom he is becoming attracted and who saves his life.
When Roman is ordered to kill an innocent man, he tries to walk away. Unfortunately for him, someone does not want to let him go and uses Everly to try to force Roman to their will.
What follows is a captivating tale of Roman and Everly's fight to escape from a madman bent on revenge while not knowing who they can trust from Roman's past. Can he really trust his family or can those closest to Roman be bought to turn on him? I loved finding out!
I can't wait to read the next book in this new series.
