Books Download Kill Without Shame ARES Security #2 –

I ve given this a C at AAR so 25 starsKill Without Shame is the second book in Alexandra Ivy s ARES Security series and while mention is made of a lot thread concerning one of the team who has been receiving threats which I assume was begun in the Tempting a Texan (The Texas Series, previous book thatlotline is not really advanced here so this one can be read as a standalone That said I can t really recommend it as the whole thing is incredibly unexciting the romance is seriously underdeveloped and not at all believable given the context and the suspense is Organizational Behavior and Virtual Work pretty much non existent the fact that it took me over four days to read shows how easy it was tout the book asideARES Security is a high tech high end firm set up by five men brothers in arms who bonded when they were held risoner by the Taliban during a tour in Afghanistan The hero of Kill Without Shame is Lucas St Clair the son of a senator who is estranged from his wealthy but coldly aloof arents but whose name still opens doors He is not above using that name and family connections when needed but mostly he wants to leave his old life behind him and concentrate on the new one he is building That becomes difficult however when he is informed that an old acuaintance from his school and college days Tony Hughes has been shot and killed in the street and that he was clutching a Light As A Feather, Cold As A Marble (Weeping Willow picture of Mia Ramon an old flame of Lucas when he died Worse theicture had the words Kill her or else scrawled across it Lucas didn t know Tony well they were from completely opposite backgrounds but Mia is important to him even though they haven t seen each other for fifteen years he still carries a torch for her and can t bear the thought of her being in dangerMia is a successful businesswoman in her hometown of Shreveport running a landscaping and garden design business that she has built up from her father s much smaller operation The last The Life And Times Of Rosie The Riveter person she wants or expects to see in her office is Lucas St Clair and their reunion is frosty Lucas walked out on her with no explanation fifteen years earlier and she hasn t seen him since he broke her heart and she is not about tout herself through it again She can t deny that he s become a devastatingly attractive man or that she still feels the same Sex Powers University 2 pull towards him as before but she is determined to keep him at arm s length no matter what Mia looked on Tony as a friend and used to employ him from time to time so she s naturally upset to hear of his death but she has no idea of why anyone would want him dead and even less as to why she would be a target herselfLucas naturally wants to investigate Tony s murder and the threat against Mia and keep her safe It s not long before their enforcedroximity is rekindling the old feelings between them or long before they re giving in to them but even then Mia is determined to keep things on a casual footing as a means of self Deadly Seduction protectionThe stakes are raised however when an attempt is made on Mia s life With help from his team Lucas gradually uncovers a series of misdeeds that dates back decades implicatingeople Mia cares about in a morass of embezzlement blackmail and murder Lucas and Mia have to work together to uncover the truth even as the killer is closing in on themFrom that description you d be forgiven for thinking this is a fast moving thriller with a sexy romance on the side but it s nothing of the sort The Randy Comfort Rise Again pacing isedestrian and the romance is Meet The Vampire perfunctory and frankly unbelievable Lucas and Mia haven t seen each other in FIFTEEN YEARS and they re hopping into bed.

Together the day after their reunion They split up when Lucas was eighteen I m assuming Mia was around the same age and there is a massive difference between what someone is like at eighteen and what they re like in their early thirties They are or should be very different eople now yet there s no sense of them getting to know each other again In fact there s no romantic development at all although I do give the author credit for having Lucas be open about his feelings for Mia and Better Policing with Microsoft Office 2007 prepared tout himself out there even when it s clear to him that she is still not sure about him There is a cute secondary romance in the story between Mia s assistant Taylor and the local detective assigned to the case which is actually interesting than the non romance between Lucas and MiaThe mystery Escaflowne (Escaflowne Newtype 100% Collection, 40) plot is reasonably wellut together but there s only one Wild Pork and Watercress possible villain which takes away any element of suspenseretty early on and the storyline is fairly Shorty predictable The characterisation overall isaper thin and I never connected with either of the Articles on Works by C. S. Lewis, Including principals and not only is the main romantic relationship a disappointment there is no real sense of the emotional bond we re told exists between Lucas and the other ARES team membersAll in all Kill Without Shame which makes absolutely no sense as a title is a lacklustre book thatroved a big disappointment I m not invested enough in any of the characters to want to Interracial Romance BWWM pick up another book in the series and uite honestly not suitably impressed with any facet of this one writinglotting or characterisation to be inclined to read this author again They survived the depths of Hell in a Taliban Gaddafis Harem prison Five men closer than brothers ready to stand by each other no matter what Together they formed ARES Security and took on the jobs no one else could handle they are brave loyal skilled and if necessary will KILL WITHOUT SHAME Once again Alexandra Ivy gives us razor sharp tension hot and steamy romance and brings these unsung heroes to life in all their human gloryA dead body on the street with his name and business address as well as aicture of the woman he let get away Puff pulls Lucas St Clair and the men of ARES into the world of Lucasast a Laid to Ruin (Lancelots Fall, past colored with loveain and the Leyendas Negras pressures of a family who controlled his life with ruthless calculation Mia was broken hearted when Lucas left her behind for bigger and better things appropriate to his standing in life but now he is back a changed man on a mission to save the only woman he would ever love So much anguish so many secrets so many feelings of betrayal now a successful business owner how can Mia trust in Lucas as he takes a step outside of the law to keep her safeOne again Alexandra Ivy captures the force of true loveitches it into a tale of dark secrets and murder and attempts to bring two strong The Iron Palace (Shadowed Path, people back together again Will her characters allow her to create a well earned happy ending or will the ghosts of theast haunt the love that still exists Definitely another of Ms Ivy s intriguing and captivating tale for lovers of loyalty over the top alpha males that sizzle and strong women who value their independence and guard their heartsI received an ARC edition from Zebra in exchange for my honest reviewSeries ARES Security Book 2Publisher Zebra December 27 2016Publication Date December 27 2016Genre Romantic Suspense MilitaryPrint Length 352 Bad, Bad Bluebloods (Rich Boys of Burberry Prep pagesAvailable from Barnes NobleFor Reviews More Rich kid and a heir to St Clair legacy Lucas fell hard for the maid s daughter Mia His family wou.
