Longer Review:

This book takes the concept of fighting for love to an entirely new level. Fisticuffs for everyone! Marc and Lily are an unlikely couple as they find their way on the the run from the Russian mafia (amongst other people). Their attraction is strong and their will to live is even stronger – these two find themselves in harrowing battles with bullets flying and heads bashing – sometimes even at each other.

With diamonds on the line, they come together to help Lily formulate her plan for revenge while Marc works out his own plan for retribution. No one ever planned for them to fall for each other.

This book is intensely passionate and dangerously hot. I was feverishly reading from scene to scene and almost murdered Marc at the end of the book (I still might unless Lily does it for me first). Lily is the baddest chick you’ll ever meet. She can hold her own in any fight and has more bravado than some men I’ve read about. Fiercely loyal yet still ever too trusting, Lily constantly is trying to figure out who she is and what she’s meant to be. I’d do her.

I adored Marc’s fighting style and brute nature. He’s refreshingly honest and undeniably affected by Lily – even though he doesn’t want to be. Their story isn’t usual and this book is more Mr. and Mrs. Smith than a classic fairytale, but I loved the hard edges that made me gasp and hurt and squint and grimace.

I’m heading into book two with open eyes and a little anger burning in my chest. Let’s go get ’em, Lily.
