Reviewed by Miranda
Lucy Kincaid was kidnapped and savagely brutalized six years ago. Lucy killed one of her attackers but can’t seem to escape the stigma that now surrounds her because of her past. She now works for Women and Children First an organization that attempts to protect women and children from sex offenders. Lucy searches for cyber criminals, specifically sex offenders that have been paroled to see if they’ve returned to their criminal ways. Lucy’s greatest hope is to become an FBI agent but her dream is in jeopardy when another of her past attackers is murdered and evidence points to Lucy.
Lucy’s under suspicion and needs help. She turns to Sean Rogan. He works with her brother at RCK Security. As the evidence begins to look grimmer, Lucy and Sean uncover more murders that may be connected. The closer Lucy comes to discovering the plot the more danger she puts herself in. The more Sean is around Lucy the more enamored he becomes but is Lucy ready for a relationship after everything she’s been through? There’s a target on her back now; will she get a chance to find out?
Love Me To Death is a thrill-a-minute suspenseful ride to the last second. Lucy Kincaid is a smashing, intelligent woman that readers can look up to. This woman is tough as nails and has a heart of gold. She’s been through devastating trauma but has moved forward to fight for other victims. Sean Rogan is a known playboy but Lucy tempts him in ways no one has before. He sees not only the strong fighter but the soft woman inside Lucy. These two make an adorable and very real couple. I thoroughly enjoyed watching these two fall for each other.
Allison Brennan has written an engrossing suspenseful mystery. Ms. Brennan’s characters have been extensively plotted. They all have layers and layers of depth, even the villains. The villains are particularly nasty in Love Me To Death! The glimpses you get into the villains psyches are gruesome and shocking which only propels the story further. Instead of being a turnoff these horrid villains hypnotize you even more with their wicked ways making Love Me To Death a one of a kind mystery. Love Me To Death is an extremely well written novel! I felt as if I was a part of the story I could feel Lucy’s emotions fly off the pages. I shared her pain, pleasure, terror, and relief. Love Me To Death is a non-stop adrenaline pumping novel that leaves others in the dust. Lucy is my new Hero!!
