L.P. Lovell blew me away with this second installment! ‘Kiss Me’ is as enthralling, gripping and well written as the first one. It’s dark, it’s raw, it’s gritty and passionate as hell. I was immersed in this book from the very beginning and I couldn’t put it down. I love intense stories that keep me at the edge of my seat and this one was exactly that and so much more. Everything was so good…from the utterly addictive story-line to the two amazing main characters. I loved every aspect of this story and I wouldn’t change one single thing about it. I loved it that much!
“I’m Una Ivanov, and though I may be running for now, I don’t fucking hide. If they want me, they can come. I’m ready for them…”
One of the Bratva’s special soldiers, Una Ivanov is a warrior, she’s the Kiss of Death – a hired killer, feared, yet respected by many. Her life changes irrevocably when she meets Nero. Nero’s life, in turn, flips upside down when he encounters the notorious Russian killer. Respected and feared by many, Nero has always wanted power, but when he meets Una he starts wanting something else too. She is supposed to be just a weapon, in some way just a pawn, but she becomes so much more in a very short amount of time. She becomes his queen. Now, Nero wants more, he wants Una.
“I have to find her, because without her, all the power in the world wouldn’t be enough to fill the void left by my vicious little butterfly.”
Una is on the run. Helping Nero was not the smartest thing she’s ever done, not when now, she has more enemies than she wants. She knows she will have to face some serious consequences for killing the under-boss of the Italian mafia. Nicholai, her “boss” is also looking for her since she has defied his order to return to Moscow. And, of course, there’s Nero, who wants more from her than a simple promise, especially now since he found out about the baby.
Nero never expected to fall so hard for Una. He knows he should let her go since everyone wants her death and she has so many enemies, but he can’t. He wants her by his side. He wants everything with her and, most of all, he wants to protect what’s his. He will kill anyone who dares to touch her, anyone who dares to stand between them. Una has gotten under his skin, so he’s willing to do anything to keep her.
“I want to fuck her and hurt her, break her and tame her, and I know she’ll always take everything I give her and hand it back tenfold. She is perfect and unique, and mine.”
Fast-paced, intense and deliciously sexy, ‘Kiss Me’ met all my expectations. L.P. Lovell blended the action, suspense and steam perfectly and she delivered an unputdownable read that I devoured from start to finish. The story is truly addictive and I read it from cover to cover. I loved all the twists and turns and I was at the edge of my seat the entire time.
Una and Nero are amazing in this installment. Both are fantastically portrayed and both are crazy as f@ck, which, personally, I loved very much. Both of them are strong , complex and captivating characters. Once again, I loved Una. She’s smart, strong, fierce and dangerous and, overall, a bada$$ heroine. Nero is perfect for Una in every way and I truly felt that as the story unfolded. I loved him in this installment. I loved his power and charisma, his smart and cunning ways and how possessive and protective he was of Una. He’s sweet and caring, considerate and thoughtful. The way he wants to protect Una is fantastic and I loved the fact that he was willing to do anything to have her.
“He’s like my own personal high, a shot of adrenalin straight to my soul, reminding me of what it is to be alive, to be human.”
My favorite aspect of the story is the crazy dynamic between the two main characters. Not only are they entertaining, but they are also sexy as hell. The connection between them is palpable and the sexy times are smocking. I loved the intensity between them and how explosive they were. Without a doubt, they are perfect for each other in every way.
All in all, ‘Kiss Me’ is a fantastic read. If you are looking for an intense, fast-paced, crazy ride filled with action, suspense and steam, look no further and try this one…but only after you read the first installment of the series, ‘Kill Me’.
“She may have started as a pawn in a game, but now, she is the crowned queen. She is that which I treasure most. She is my happiness.”
