5 Amazing stars for this one!

Holy Smokes!!! I have such a book hangover from this read and I am so ready for the next book since this one was a cliffhanger! This was a first read for me by Kim Karr and I am so hooked on her writing now. The suspense, action and romance of this book is unbelievable. The characters have personal conflicts that they have to work through as well. This story flowed so easily and was really easy to follow. I got lost in it!

Logan is the grandson of a mobster on one side of his family and a mega-rich grandfather on the other side. Logan has done well all his life keeping the two in their respective corners. Logan's dad has not stayed away from all the trouble that his father was in as being a mobster and inadvertently Logan gets drug into some of their troubles. When Logan's dad looses his temper and barges into Michael's, Elle's brother-in-law, office to try and settle some business, Logan meets Elle there because she helps to take care of her niece since her sister's disappearance 3 months ago. Elle had known that her sister was into something that she shouldn't be, but she just had no idea how deep she was into it. When Logan and Elle meet eyes, she knows there is something special about this hunk immediately. They have a casual conversation like anyone would have meeting for the first time. When Logan leaves, Elle regrets not getting any of his information. When Elle goes to leave for the night, she has a flat tire and has to call Triple A. It is pouring rain so she decides to wait in a small pub for her help to get there, and luckily for her, Logan is there and she gets a second chance with him. Logan is a gentleman and offers to change the tire for her but she told him she already had help on the way, but he offers to have dinner with her while they are waiting.

When Elle and Logan get to know each other over dinner, the chemistry between the two of them is unmistakable. You can almost feel the sparks fly off the pages between these two. Elle has ghosts from her past that haunt her, so she has not had a serious sexual relationship in a long time. Elle's father was a monster to her mother and she and her sister had to hear how he treated her everyday. Their dad would lock them in their room and do what he wanted with their mother. There was a certain phrase that he used that haunts Elle now, so she has asked all her one night stands to not talk during sex. Things are different from the beginning with Logan though and Elle knows that he is different for her.

Logan knows about the whole situation with Elle's sister before she even tells him about it. He has been working on the case since their life long enemy is in on it and if her can get them convicted, maybe things will be better for his dad and himself. They have been given a 7 day time limit to get what the kidnappers want so they will give Elle's sister back. They days quickly tick by and Elle and Logan become inseparable because Logan wants to make sure that Elle is not in danger. Logan knows how these mobster guys can be and he wants to make sure that they don't get to Elle. Some incidents happen that lead him to believe that they are onto Elle being around him, and to get to Logan, they go after the people that are seen with him.

All the while this is all happening, Elle is opening her own shop. She has all kinds of rare things in her shop that are one of a kind. She has two ladies that work for her and help her run the shop. Elle helps at the shop as much as she can when she is not helping Michael with her niece, Clementine. Elle keeps asking her brother in law what is going on with the situation of getting her sister back. Michael never wants to tell her anything until the very end when the time is drawing near. This is the same time that Logan has decided to try and stay away from Elle for a few days to keep the bad people away from her. When Logan finally goes back to check on Elle, he is forced to make a split second decision that will change everything. What will it be?? You HAVE to read this book to find out. I can promise you that you will not regret it.

Kim Karr has done an excellent job with this one and I can not wait for Crush to come out! Thanks for such a great read that kept my attention the whole way through!!

Four Months Before

Mile after mile, I ran. Faster, feet pounding against the broken asphalt, breath crystalizing in the air. I’d been fleeing along the edge of the road for what seemed like eternity. Trucks zoomed past me, taillights fading in the distance, and still there were no sirens.
The moon slipped behind a cloud and left me moving blindly. Finally, a whistle filled the darkness. It was what I’d been waiting for.
Let’s see how bad they want this.
I spun in the opposite direction and spotted the familiar red and blue lights. With a quick jump, I vaulted over the damaged guardrail and found myself tumbling down a steep ravine.
Landing on my stomach, blood dripped from my nose, and the taste of rust flooded my mouth. I didn’t take the time to wipe it away. I had to keep moving. I’d started this game and I was going to finish it.
Quickly, I leapt to my feet and began to run again. When a sharp burning and throbbing pulsated in my right ankle, I knew my speed would be impaired. I must have twisted it in the fall. With everything I had, I tried to ignore the pain.
Adrenaline pumped through my bloodstream, making my heart race and giving me the strength I needed. I was no longer on the pavement and my terrain was harder to navigate. Trees, broken branches, and the sickening smell of the stagnant river surrounded me. I pushed onward.
It could have been worse—at least there wasn’t any ice.
Still, it was fucking freezing out here. Snow fell around me. Chilled to the bone, I tugged my hat farther down over my ears.
I didn’t stop, though—I had to keep going.
When my eyes were streaming from the cold and my leg muscles began to seize up, I knew my body needed a break. I’d find cover and play the wait-and-see game.
The dilapidated abandoned warehouse a few yards away seemed like my best choice. The hinges were rusted and appeared broken, but when I yanked on the door, it wouldn’t open.
With a sigh, I stomped my salt-stained shoes in the slush I was standing in and looked around.
No sign of them, yet.
They’d be here soon enough.
My lungs burned as I bent over with my hands on my thighs in an attempt to catch my breath.
Poised to move in any direction, I thought about my decision to bait them.
I couldn’t believe the game of cat and mouse I had entered into—with the Boston Police Department nonetheless.
But I’d had enough. They’d been following me around for almost a week. Their more-than-obvious tail was bordering on harassment. Pushed to the limit, today I’d decided it was time to find out what it was all about. I was going to force their move. I left my vehicle and took off. They were tracking me, but what they were waiting for to approach me, I had no idea. At this point I had two choices—approach them or keep going. Since I didn’t want to make it easy, I kept running.
Time seemed to be at a standstill as I looked around again. I knew they were close. Yet, as I searched my surroundings, there were no signs of life; everything around me was dark except for the golden glow from the cables of the Zakim Bridge.
The bridge.
I couldn’t believe I’d ended up on the West End. That was more than a slight hike from the tip of the South End, where I’d started all this.
What time was it anyway?
Before I could look at my watch—the one my grandfather had given me, the one worth more than most of the houses in the surrounding area, the pretentious Patek Philippe with an authentic enamel dial and custom-made rubber watchband, the one almost a match for his own—a yellow beam of light shined down on me.
I guess the BPD finally decided to make their move.
A heavily Boston-accented voice carried through the wind. “Put your hands in the air where we can see them.”
“Fuck me. Really? You’re going to arrest me? For what?” My gaze scoured the area until they came into sight.
There were three of them and one of me. I didn’t plan to keep running. I didn’t need to, but even if I wanted to, there was nowhere to go. The riverbank was on one side and they were on the other. The trio moved closer and drew their weapons. I responded with equanimity and raised my palms. Still, not a single one of them lowered a gun. Step by step, they moved toward me. When they were about five feet away, I decided to help them out and face them, but before I could, the tallest figure lunged for me.
He pinned me to the wall. “I just wanted to talk. I wasn’t going to arrest you until you assaulted me. But thanks for giving me a reason.”
“I was putting my hands behind my back, asshole,” I grunted.
“Right,” he snickered.
Nostrils flaring, the fatter one grabbed me by my collar and yanked me to him. “Stop resisting.”
What the fuck?
A quick punch to the gut and a kick to my leg had me belly down in a matter of seconds.
Most men would have been scared shitless, but not me. I grew up living in two very different worlds, the only similarity being power and greed. To look at me, you wouldn’t believe I was capable of doing the things I had done. Born with a silver spoon in my mouth, I was the grandson of one of the wealthiest men in New York City.
It wasn’t my trust fund background that anyone had to worry about, though. I was also the grandson of the former head of Boston’s Blue Hill Gang—a piece of me I had tried to renounce. That I wanted to escape. But my family ties kept me bound. The Irish Mob might have changed since my father’s father ran things, but there were some things that never changed.
I’d been raised in both worlds and these cops knew it. They were counting on the Blue Hill Gang part of me to greet them.
Well fuck them very much—but that’s not what they were going to get.
