“He’s fearless and ruthless. Soulless.”

As a flight attendant, Alana Bernal has had her share of suitors. She's also had more than her fair share of tragedy within her messed-up family. But what she hasn't had is love. Real, rip-your-heart-out, tear-your-clothes-off, all-consuming love.

At least that was the case until she met an American tourist, Derek Conway, a ripped ex-soldier with steely eyes and a commanding presence.

What started as a chance encounter between the two in Puerto Vallarta, a weekend full of hot sex and mindless passion, has led to something more.

Something deadly.

Because Derek isn't the type of man to fall in love. He's not a man who sticks around.

And he's definitely not in Mexico on vacation.

Derek is a mercenary, a killer-for-hire, a man who does the ugly jobs for the highest bidder.

Unfortunately for Alana and Derek, the highest bidder has the power to destroy whatever worlds they have created for themselves.

The highest bidder can destroy everything.

*This is a romantic suspense book, #2 in the Dirty Angels trilogy but can be read as a standalone novel*

Review Dirty Deeds

“Sometimes people are mysterious because they have something to hide.”

Dirty Deeds is the second book in the Dirty Angels series, about Derek Conway and Alana Bernal.

Derek is hired to kill Alana but when the offer is too good to be true, the warning bells sound and he turns the offer down. Derek decides to investigate Alana instead, because if she is worth that much dead, perhaps someone would be willing to pay more for her to be alive. What he finds is not what he imagined and what he received was more than he could have hoped. When he was hit with deja vu his world nearly fell apart.

For me, I missed the gritty hard Derek, the killer. I expected more alpha, less “push over”. Alana, too, was not what I expected. I expected feisty, yet got timid. The two together were “mushy and more sweet” so not what I expected from their characters in previous books. I expected/wanted sparks, flames, banter, even clashing. Not instant lust.

What I did like were the chase scenes and the fight scenes. KH does these fabulously! I am always on the edge of my seat. These redeemed the book for me and kept it at a 4 star read.
