This novel ends on a cliffhanger.
Covert, stealthy, cunning—I'm trained as a weapon. A lethal killer. I do what needs to be done in order to protect those who can't protect themselves.
I’m never the same person twice.
It’s never been an issue.
But I underestimated her.
The beautiful woman next door. There's something sexy about the way she watches me, eyes wide with an innocent curiosity. I find myself aching for her attention. I want her to look at me, but not when I'm covered in the blood of the man I just killed.
I live in the dark. She could be my light. I want her. And I know she feels it too.
When what I do puts her life in danger, everything changes. And I start to realize that maybe not all is as it seems. Every part of me screams to save her...
But what if I'm wrong.
What if she's the one saving me?

I'm a huge Addison Jane fan. Huge! I haven't gotten to read K E Osborn yet. But, after reading this I will change that. This has been on my kindle in my TBR pile for awhile. I'm glad I read it now when book 2 is going to release soon. Bc, after that ending I'd of been mad to have awhile to wait. I'm not even sure how/what to write.
Kace is not your typical man. He's quiet, observant and has the moves of a stealthy ninja. His job makes him do things most people couldn't and wouldn't do or understand. Kace does it because he loves his country and he'd do anything to protect it and the people.
Kace never questioned his duties. He did what was given to him. Kace had no reason to. But, then he met his neighbor Lily. He found himself drawn to her. No matter how hard he tries to stay away from her he continues to bump into her. Lily intrigues Kace. Kace sees she's the light to his darkness. Kace is realizing not everything is black and white.
Lily works as a surgical vet nurse and plans on owning her own veterinary practice one day. It's the only reason she deals with her boss and his verbal abuse. She is at a loss of words when she runs into her neighbor. He looks dangerous and Lily could careless Bc he made her feel things she's never felt before.
One night when Lily was watching Kace's dog Daisy someone broke into her apartment. Kace found out that everything he thought he knew was not so true. Kace does something for the first time. He disobeys orders. Kace and Lily are now on the run. The run of their lives to save their lives. The people chasing them are the ones closest to Kace. Kace was able to see the truth. He was able to see past what was made to be truth. Lily hasn't known Kace long enough to trust him. But, she can feel him and look into his eyes and see his soul. She'll stay next to Kace until her last breath. But, Kace vows that'll never happen.
This book kept me on the edge of my seat from the very first page. I was so invested in this story that I forgot what sleep was. I was rooting for Kace and Lily from the beginning until the last page. There was so much I hated about this book too. I hated that Kace and his team are more then a team. They're a family. Which was why is was both mad and upset with their actions and their lack of support for Kace.
Even though Lily and Kace are complete opposites, they're perfect together and fit together like two puzzle pieces. Lily was great at settling Kace's emotions in check and not letting him get himself down. I can tell you this. I already have book two on my TBR list. I knew I had to read this before that. But, I was so not prepared for that massive ending! I didn't realize they weren't standalone. Not that it changes it Bc I loved it anyway. This is a must read. Addison and K E are an incredible team. I hope they keep writing together!
