Vega could have saved herself alot of physical and mental pain if she would have just gone through counseling instead of trying to become something she thought her dead father wanted her to be. Then there was the relationship between Vega and her younger sister. Vega was to be in her late 20's. However, the author made Fiona sound like she was 14 years old. A little young don't you think for someone who was working with her "big sister" as a bounty hunter.
Then there is what I would call the S&M relationship Vega had with the men in her life. Really, would you want to have an intimate relationship with someone who shoots you, strangles you, or wants to kill you? Once again, Vega needs therapy.
If you like books where you want to play psychologist to the characters, this book is for you. If you want a book that makes you want to keep reading because you have to find out what happens. Pick another book.
When Vega gets handed the file of one of the biggest bonds she's ever gone after, she has no idea what she's signed up for. Grayson Walker, accused of brutally butchering his best friend, platoon mate and business partner has been on the run and evading capture for six months. His bond is huge and the money would be nice, but the challenge is the temptation for Vega. As she follows his trail, she gains his grudging respect, even though he shoots her, and he tells her a conspiracy theory that is almost too big to be believed. Almost. She puts together pieces from across the country in their cat and mouse game, slowly becoming convinced that he is an innocent man. But she still needs to bring him in, alive, and a lot of very bad people want to make sure that their secrets stay deadly quiet.
Heat factor hot.
Vega is assigned the job of capturing Grayson Walker, a rich, handsome businessman who is suspected of murder and considered very dangerous. Vega hunts him down, and there's an immediate strong attraction between the two, but Grayson makes it clear that he won't be easy to capture. He insists he's innocent, and he points to a larger conspiracy with unknown perpetrators. Even if Vega believes him, her job is only to bring him in. Alas, Grayson escapes.
Vega continues to hunt Grayson, competing with Butch for the capture. She has also started to question whether her "benefits" arrangement is truly enough, as Grayson has stoked in her a desire for more.
The author has stocked the book with a cast of well-written characters, from Vega's worried mother (understandable since she's got two daughters risking their lives every day) to the strung-out addict who supplies Vega with information. The pace is strong throughout, with excitement, danger, and twists to hold the reader's interest. The author injects the story with some unexpected humor; I laughed when it was revealed Vega was a former beauty queen (Miss Motor City). Not something she really wants advertised, as it doesn't exactly coincide with her current badass image. And when Vega finally catches up with Grayson, she gets him handcuffed and things get very, very hot.
