Series: Elemental Assassin, Book 4
Buy Tangled Threads
I’d rather face a dozen lethal assassins any night than deal with something as tricky, convoluted, and fragile as my feelings.
But here I am. Gin Blanco, the semi-retired assassin known as the Spider. Hovering outside sexy businessman Owen Grayson’s front door like a nervous teenage girl. One thing I like about Owen: he doesn’t shy away from my past—or my present. And right now I have a bull’s-eye on my forehead. Cold-blooded Fire elemental Mab Monroe has hired one of the smartest assassins in the business to trap me. Elektra LaFleur is skilled and efficient, with deadly electrical elemental magic as potent as my own Ice and Stone powers. Which means there’s a fifty-fifty chance one of us won’t survive this battle. I intend to kill LaFleur—or die trying—because Mab wants the assassin to take out my baby sister, Detective Bria Coolidge, too. The only problem is, Bria has no idea I’m her long-lost sibling . . . or that I’m the murderer she’s been chasing through Ashland for weeks. And what Bria doesn’t know just might get us both dead. . . .
What I thought:
Wow. What a story Jennifer Estep weaves with Gin. I believe this is one of the best in the series. So much has happened, leading up to this, and it looks like in the next, we may just see what happens with the Spider takes on Mab.
I love Gin. Absolutely love her. She's such a strong character, no damsel in distress, who occasionally feels vulnerable in her new founded relationship. I definitely love this relationship with Owen *swoon* much better than Donovan. Gin needs someone strong who will stand beside her. I think she's found him. Through the entire novel, he is there for her. Never putting her down, never making her feel guilty about who she is, never questioning her. He just accepts. To put it in the simplest of terms, I think he just may be the perfect man.
The story was great. I loved how this was assassin pitted against assassin. Although, only one knew who the other assassin was. Great story. Gin hasn't made any friends among Mab's company. Estep really seems to have things planned out well, things just unfold while I'm left sitting on the edge of my seat, trying desperately not to cheat and look at the end of the book, to see what happens. This is a well thought out, well written series. I love the romance that is involved, I mean, I can't help but swoon every time Owen appears, but the story is just as good, just as thrilling.
