Blurb:  
Justice Alexandre kills for a living. A lover of the shadows, he makes no excuses for what he does. Besides, people bore him. He has no use for them…until a hot summer night in a Toronto nightclub. A woman with misery in her eyes whispers three words in his ear, shattering his world like shards of crystal at his feet. 

She wants to lose herself—or maybe find herself, Myka Prentiss can’t readily decide. What she does know is the dark stranger hugging the shadows at the back of the club calls to her in ways she can’t explain. Putting fear aside, accepting the heady pull, she makes her move and asks for one nameless night. Nothing between them but hot sweat and tangled sheets.

He accepts.

When they’re done, she walks away, wanting more. Back to an unfulfilled life, she’s comforted only by her memories…until her dark stranger shows up at her door with an announcement.

He’s been hired to kill her.

Review:

Hot! Hot! Hot!

I cannot say enough how hot this book was. I enjoyed it from beginning to end. I didn't want to put it down. I loved the characters and wanted more! This book had it all, lust, passion, love, fear, intrigue, guns, dirty talk, sexy hero and heroine! I was in love with it from the start.

What can I even say about Myka and Justice other than hot and sexy. Both characters are likable, and one wants to continue to get to know them and watch as they are drawn to each other in the most erotic of ways. The scene is so dark and exciting when they meet. Every woman's fantasy of the dangerous male and wanting to be overtaken by him is all realized just in the beginning of the book.

Myka wanted to lose herself in Justice and lose herself she did, but he did a bit of losing himself within her and it was sensual, erotic, sexy and filled with white-hot need. Two lost souls who find each other in a nightclub and ignite a passion for each other that cannot be quenched.

My emotions took a roller coaster ride as I read this book. I was excited, nervous, worried, thrilled, turned on, pleased, shocked and oh most definitely content by the end of the book. This book is a keeper and one that I will re-read again and again. I recommend this book for those of you looking for extra heat with your love.

The plot. What can I say about the plot other than it is exciting and it keeps you guessing. Which is indeed a wonderful thing. It runs smoothly and at a great pace and keeps one interested and invested in the two characters. This is a sequel to A Wicked Ride (The Wicked: Book 2) and I have to say I am eagerly awaiting another installment, there were enough other characters with stories that cried out to be written and I am sure Avril Ashton will not disappoint us.

Be warned the sex acts within the book are not for the faint of heart. They will set your pulse racing and make you wish you were the one screaming Justice's name.

This book recieves five stars from me for heated sexual scenes, loveable and fun characters, intrigue and just plain awesomeness!
