3.5 Heart Review by Ashley
The Saint is my first read from Kimberly Kincaid and I was ready for it after reading the blurb. And the opening...whoa! What a way to dive right in.
I liked that Carmen had lived a life with trials and tribulations and pulled herself up and out of it. And somehow found herself in the middle of a deep and twisted plot. Thankfully she knew some good guys she could trust. Even if it did take a while for her to get there with Liam. Their mutual attraction and disastrous encounter from years ago only complicated matters more.
I will say that even though who was behind everything was revealed fairly early on, there were still a lot of pieces to get into place to bring them down the right way. And in the middle of all the danger and chaos was this chemistry and pull between two people who couldn't be more different if they tried.
The push and pull, the will they or won't they, the complicated past...all of it made Carmen and Liam's unlikely romance that much more compelling. These two were sarcastic and steamy while also being real and raw. And that ending...it was the happy they deserved.
