Book Blurb:

As a hitman for hire, Percivale is no stranger to violence.
From the moment he saw Blossom Jaymes through the window of her bakery, he knew he was in too deep. Not only was she as sweet as her perfectly crafted treats, but she was a soft-spoken, golden-haired angel that shone like a bright beacon in his dark world. And Percivale didn’t deal in angels. He dealt in death and crime. The even bigger issue? Percivale’s next hit is on said sweet little baker who doesn’t seem to realize how much danger lurks around her with each passing day.
If he doesn’t get the job done, who will?

When Percivale has to decide what’s more important to him—the life of a woman who may very well be innocent or getting his revenge on the men who murdered his family—the lines become blurred. Morals are twisted and a deathly chase ensues that can only result in one thing—Blossom buried six feet under.
Or can it?
Can Percivale let his lust for revenge go in order to save Blossom from the bounty on her head, or will the power she unknowingly holds over him be what gets her killed?

❤️🔥 My Review

Heart stopping sexiness! The asshole and the princess. Blossom is such a sweetheart and the perfect foil for the stoic Percivale. I’ve been waiting for his story since the glimpses of this intriguing character in the first story in the series. He’s a terrific antihero! The kind you love to hate and hate to love even when he’s being cruel. And boy does he have his moments in this story especially when he leads Blossom into his darkness. At first I didn’t think I was ever going to like him but Perc grew on me as the story progressed and his obsession with Blossom exploded. This author can write a character like no other. Perc didn’t stray to far from his assholery even when the lovely Blossom softened him up a bit. There’s a lot of figuring each other out without much talking but they do share a few vital facts with each other that offers some explanation into their character makeup. His response to her revelation is jaw dropping but so Perc. Awesome! Her reaction makes for a steamy connection. These two are so hot when they get on the same page or when Perc forces the issue in his own cruel way. Blossom can’t help her attraction to this closed off hunk of cold killer. He goes beyond bad boy into a different beast entirely. Hotness personified! Perc goes about his business of killing while keeping Blossom for himself, annihilating his enemies, and juggling his wants against following Arthur’s orders. What will Arthur do when he finds out Perc hasn’t finished the job? What Arthur does best…brutality. This is an exciting, bloody thrill ride that kept me turning the pages wanting to know if Perc and Blossom make it out of the mayhem in one piece and survive as a couple. Great ending and fitting for this couple. Excellent captor story with sexy characters and a great addition to a thrilling series.
