I’m not a good man. I’m a killer. I take care of business and I don’t blink an eye when I do so. But they seem to be convinced that I’m the right man for this job. They say I’m the only one who can protect her, to save her from the abusive life she lives. I will do it. But when all is said and done, who will save her from me?
I’m trapped. Trapped in a marriage to a man I don’t recognize anymore. I have no one to turn to and nowhere to go. When a mysterious stranger approaches me, offering me the freedom I’m so desperate for, I jump at the opportunity to escape the hell I live in now. But did I just run from one danger into the arms of another?
3.5 Heart Review by Ashley
Not sure what boulder I've been hiding under since Stranger is my first read for J.J. Grice but holy crap! Talk about a dark and twisted and keeping me hanging.
From the start I was rooting for Lillie. My heart ached for this young woman who had been through so much that was beyond her control. For as much pain as she had been living in, when presented with the chance to make a change, she took it. Enter Cole. The man behind the moves put into place to get her out.
I enjoyed seeing the broody, protective bear soften a bit as he fell for his charge. But the danger was never far. And as things escalated and Lillie's life was put in the balance it was all he could do to keep his wits and her safe.
Stranger was intense but it also packed a bit of an emotional punch that I wasn't expecting. Was one of the twists predictable, yes. Did it take away from the impact? Nope. And, I found myself wanting more of the connection between the two leading characters. That being said, Lillie and Cole's forced proximity romance was impassioned and wild. I am ready to see what is in store for the Dark Matter Security family next!
