Headhunter by Kristen Proby
As the son of one of the States' most prominent mob bosses, Shane Martinelli's always been immersed in society's shady underbelly. Learning to navigate it and keep to the edges was working just fine until an acquaintance turns up missing, and he fears the worst. From the moment he laid eyes on her, he hasn't stopped thinking about her. Luckily, as an ex-special operative, he's uniquely qualified to track her down and keep her safe. Unfortunately, nobody's making that easy--not the people who took her nor the woman herself.
Ivie Jordan has led a pretty uneventful life, and that's just how she likes it. Especially since she'll be the first to admit that she doesn't do so well in social situations. She's a proud business owner, and while she doesn't have family, she does have a network of people who look out for her. Little did she know that being accepted into that fold came with a laundry list of issues. When the worst happens, and she's forced to rely on the ruggedly handsome alpha hero who comes to her rescue, she discovers her inner badass--and the sultry vixen on her other shoulder.
Too bad the two of them are literally running for their lives and trying to ensure the safety of those they love. There is way more at stake than meets the eye.
It's time for the hunted to become the hunters.
4 Heart Review by Ashley
The Martinelli's are back and just as intense as ever. I was anticipating Ivie and Shane's story after the first book in the series and Kristen Proby did not let me down.
I liked Ivie so much. She was smart, brave and savvy. And my admiration grew for her the more the book went on and her strength started to show as she faced what was in front of her head on. While it was difficult for her to admit a lot of the pain from her past, she knew she had to and that she was safe with Shane. Mmmmm Shane. With Ivie in danger all of his protective instincts came out. His need to keep her safe. His need to figure out who was behind it all. With these two in close quarters it was only a matter of time before they gave into the months-long flirtation they had going on.
But as things escalated and Ivie's situation became more dire, the feelings got deeper. My heart was racing as the puzzle clicked together and everything came to a head. Simply put, Ivie and Shane's friends-to-lovers romance was addictive. Secrets. Lies. Mystery. Lust. Deception. Love. And a surprise appearance from another of Kristen Proby's characters combined to make Headhunters unputdownable. And holy crap that ending!! I can not wait to see what happens to this family next.
