The story has lots of twists keeping you guessing on what’s coming next, the characters are funny, there is a lot of humor, action, suspense, sadness and mystery in this book.

I like how the story has dual POVs allowing me to connect with both of the characters. The writing is good and descriptive. Although there’s a solid story it sorta felt a little rushed.

 

Valerie and Kyle are both assassins and they’re assigned to kill each other. Val spends a period of a year studying her target (Kyle), learning everything about him until it’s the right time to make her move. The only problem? She falls in love him in the process and no longer wishes to go through with it.

 

Valerie Harper (or Val) is a complicated character in her own way; selfish then selfless, coldhearted then warm and loving… I liked her, but sometimes she was just whiny and annoying I had those moments i wanted to shake and smack her.

Kyle Shultz is charming and loving with his family, taking care of his sick mother (and famil in general), his sister and his niece.

 

 

 

Blurb:

Loving someone has never been so deadly.
Valerie Harper has one assignment, one mission. Assassinate her mark and everyone he loves. But what happens when she finds that she loves him too?
Her instructions are simple; do not fraternize with your target, observe at a distance, and never engage with the enemy. However, as things take an unexpected turn in Val’s world, these simple instructions begin to change.

Refusing to be a puppet, Kyle Shultz walks away from his old life and settles into the college routine. But the life of a student is more difficult than he imagined. Making friends and attending parties are as foreign a concept as showing a target mercy.

The lines between the state of the job and the affairs of the heart are blurred as Valerie and Kyle’s worlds collide.
With a maze of enemies and hit lists to navigate, will these two young adversaries proceed wide-eyed and alone into the fray? Or will they blindly trust the feelings they can no longer ignore?

I saw this book on Netgalley, and as much as the description lured me in, i couldn’t help but give it 3 stars.

The book tells the story of Destiny, a 17 year old girl who wakes up in hospital suffering from amnesia.
I was pretty excited about this story because the description sounded so interesting and had me intrigued but honestly…he plot was easy and predictable. Also it’s was such a fast and quick read,
Destiny is a good, very trusting and innocent character. her relationship with Gabriel becomes addictive the more you read!! I enjoyed their relationship at the end.
I had an issue with the mother’s behavior..she obviously got problems.

Blurb:

Destiny awakes with amnesia. She’d been driving on a wet road, about to leave flowers at a memorial marker of a deceased classmate, when she almost met that same fate.

Her mother, Mildred, is beyond restrictive, and she doesn’t want Destiny to have her cellphone back. A nurse sneaks it into her room, but it’s useless without the passcode. After her hospital stay, her mother becomes physically abusive.

Destiny and the boy she’s developing feelings for decide to drive around to spark her memory. She’s positive she crashed near a memorial marker. When they find the place in question, and when Destiny remembers her phone’s passcode, nothing is as it seems—and Mildred is crazier than she first thought.

Happy reading!
