5 stars – I loved it!

Kate Daniels has opened her own business but hasn’t had any clients yet. But her first job turns out to be a lot more dangerous than she ever expected and everyone is in danger. Now it’s a race against the clock to stop the enemies and save Atlanta. 

This is the fifth book in the series and it was amazing! This series gets better with every book. I was addicted from the very beginning and couldn’t put the book down until it was finished. Kate is struggling to get her business off the ground. She has the experience but her former boss has tarnished her reputation making her clientless. This first job for Cutting Edge Investigation turns out to be a lot more dangerous than she planned. 

As with all the books in this series, this was nonstop action and suspense, with some romance in between. I really enjoyed the Kate and Curran interactions in this one. They have only been mated for a little while and still are working out the kinks in their relationship. But they are working them out and becoming a very strong couple. Also I love how much chemistry these two have!

“If I fought for them and was crippled, they would all say nice things, and then they would replace me and forget I was ever there. You would stay with me. You would take care of me, because you love me. I love you too, Kate. If you ever became hurt, I would not leave you. I’ll be there. Wherever you want ‘there’ to be.” – Curran

In this book we also learn more about Kate’s family and what they can do. The confrontation between Kate and Roland just keeps getting closer with every book, but first she has to deal with Hugh. We also have some changes with Julie in this book and it was intense. I was expecting a confrontation between Andrea and Raphael but I assume that will be in the next book. 

I love this book! I know I can always count on Ilona Andrews to create a wonderful world that will make me forget about everything going on in the world.
