Excerpt

 

The walk to his room was second nature—a quick elevator ride, take a right and go down four doors. A swift rap of my knuckles against the door, and then I waited for the overwhelming force that was Gavin Grayson.

“Hello,” he said as he opened the door. No scowl to greet me, no anger. There was a small upturn of his lips, a little more prominent on one side than the other.

A shudder rolled through me, my heart doing double time again.
“What’s wrong tonight?” I asked as I stepped into his room.
“You’re not in it,” he said.
My stomach flipped, and I felt heat flood my cheeks. How was it that in a few short weeks he had taken over my heart? I wanted, yearned for his praise. To get caught up in his eyes, loving the way they would soften and grow heavy as he looked at me.
I drew in a stuttered breath as he stepped forward and towered over me. In heels I was a decent five-feet-eight, but Gavin had to be a few inches over six feet tall—a commanding presence as he loomed over me.
“Emma?” He was so close I could feel his breath on my skin.
“Hmm?”
“I want you.”
The muscles in my thighs clenched and I stretched up toward him, almost begging him closer. “Yes.”
“To stop looking at me like that.”
The haze he covered me with suddenly cleared as I looked up at him. My stomach dropped as I tried to comprehend what happened. “What?”
He stepped away, his back turned to me. All of his muscles were tense, his fists clenching at his side.
“If that’s what you want, what do you need?” I asked.
His head fell back. “I thought I’d made that obvious.”
“I’m not sure,” I replied, more than a little surprised at how breathy my voice was. “I’ve gotten a lot of mixed messages.”
He moved back toward me. “You have me conflicted.”
“How so?”
“Because the last time I wanted a woman anywhere near this much, things didn’t end so well,” he began. “Because you’re young. Because you work for the hotel and not for me.” He reached out, his fingers caressing my clavicle before slipping up my neck. “Because nothing has ever seemed as taboo as your lips.”
My knees felt weak as he moved closer, my nipples tightening. There was no resistance as I waited with bated breath.
His lips were soft against mine, supple. A taste, a sample. It was perfect, and an electric pulse moved between us. Every ounce of want and desire sat in the small gap between our lips.
A squeak left me when he suddenly pressed forward, kissing deeper and more intensely than before. His free arm wound around my waist, pulling me closer to him while his mouth opened. I followed suit, wrapping my arms around his shoulders, pulling him closer. It was forceful and filled with more passion than I’d ever encountered, so much that it ignited an inferno inside me.
All I wanted was for him to keep touching me, to never stop.

#WOTR18 #Review #Dark #DarkRomance #StockholmSyndrome- Six by KI Lynn

Six

I had a one-night stand. It wasn’t my first, but it would be my last.

A gun to the head.

A trained killer.

A deadly conspiracy.

Kidnapped and on the run, my life and death is in the hands of a sadist captor who happens to be my one-night stand. Armed with countless weapons, money, and new identities, the man I call Six drags me around the world.

The manhunt is on and Six is the next target. Can we find out who is killing off the Cleaners before they find us?

Two down, seven to go.

When it’s all over he’ll finish the job that dropped him into my life, and end it.
Stockholm Syndrome meets bucket list, and the question of what would you do to live before you died. The questions aren’t always answered in black and white. Gray becomes the norm as my morals are tested.

Death is a tragedy, and I’ll do anything to stay alive.

Are you ready for the last ride of your life? Six has a gun to your head—what would you do?

This isn’t a love story.

It’s a death story.

**Due to the dark and explicit nature of this book, it is recommended for mature audiences only as some scenes may be particularly disturbing.**

Goodreads

I purchased this book.

So I am going to start this by saying this book might not be for everyone.  There is some possible Dub Consent in a scene in the beginning of the kidnapping….Its a bit dark in that she is kidnapped and he is telling her daily she is going to be killed once she has served her purpose…..Now on a scale of itty bitty dark to Holy Sweet Baby Jesus, I would say it is on the lower side of the scale BUT I enjoyed a few pretty dark novels (Aleatha and CJ) so again it your perception of dark.  But I will say there wasn’t any graphic and hard to read scenes if that makes any sense.

So can I say Six…Yes you can Stockholm me any day of the damn week!!  GOD LAWD this assassin is something else.  I just needed to get this started by addressing the holy hotness, arrogant factor of the main character.

Paisley/Lacey is just a typical girl doing her thing when she finds out the sexy one-night stand is now her kidnapper.  Was that his original plan? No but he just can’t seem to part with her especially since she has information he is in need of.

This book starts off so fast in the beginning which keeps the pages turning.  Then it slows downs and we are Paisley dealing with the aftermath of being caught and attracted to her kidnapper.  I mean who lusts after their kidnapper?? (Uhm, I would if it was Six too!!)  The two begin this push and pull of control.  He is always pushing her to let her know he is the one who will decide the day she dies but she is also pushing him more and more each day because…GASP….does he actually have feelings for her??

When the story slows down we are finding out more and more about Six…like WTF is he doing killing people???  We are also seeing our girl become more and more self-assured and ready to take on her death day.

We get to meet a cast of characters…AKA all Six’s killing buddies…and Five is so much of my future snuggle buddy.  I mean come on he is Five!! He is such a shit starter with Six and helps Lacey realize there is MORE there besides what Six is always telling her regarding how he feels.

The plot of the story is great.  We are trying to figure out why the assassins are being taken out.  What is happening and why are Six’s friends in danger.  I loved the story and will want to read more from this cast or characters.  The last chapter I had a little bit of a tear in my eye because…well yeah…but I absolutely love the story!!
