From USA Today bestselling author Katie Reus comes the next story in the explosive Redemption Harbor series where sparks fly and so do bullets…
He wasn’t supposed to fall for her…
She was a target. A contract that came across his desk by mistake. Axel was simply going to warn her that she was in danger and get out. Then he got a taste of her and fell hard. But they’re from two different worlds. Not only is she innocent, she’s out of his league. He should keep his distance, but he can’t. Not when someone wants her dead. Now he’s driven to protect her, to keep her safe.
What happens when she discovers who he really is?
Hadley moved to Redemption Harbor for vet school and to be closer to her new family. Now that her billionaire father knows about her existence, her life has changed drastically. She just never imagined that she might be targeted because of her family. And she definitely never imagined she would fall for the one man she should never want. A man who kills for a living. A man who’s obsessed with her. A man who will do anything to protect her from the danger lurking in the shadows.
4 Star Review by Ashley
This is my very first book from Katie Reus and it for sure won't be my last. While I sometimes felt that I was missing a little something from not having read the other books in the series, I was able to follow along and make the connections relatively easily. I flew through Innocent Target. The opening sequence alone gave me the big eyes and made my heart pound.
I really liked Hadley. Brave. Independent. Honest. Giving. Determined. She didn't have the best life growing up. But she didn't let that deter her from what she wanted for herself. For as much as I liked Hadley, Axel took it to another level. THAT MAN (and he was all man) was a walking contradiction. A gentle giant. A killer with a conscience. And a very soft spot where Hadley was concerned. She was his "job" but quickly became so much more.
Cue the intensity. While Axel knew there was a threat, he didn't know where it was coming from and the only way to ensure the danger surrounding Hadley would really go away was to take the perpetrators down. Enter Brooks, Hadley's brother, and his team of justice serving friends.
It was quite an eclectic mix of personalities and they all added to the cohesiveness of the book. I will say that for as sinister as the plot to use Hadley was, I found the way the ring leader faced the music it a hair anti-climatic. Nevertheless, I thoroughly enjoyed Innocent Target. It was fast paced, intense, sweet, and captivating.
