"Six more days and I never have to do this again. 
Six more days. Six more days.

"Three more days and I can get the fuck out of this country.
Three more days. Three more days."

This book. These characters. That plot.
This book pulled me out of my funk and I devoured this action-packed, kick-ass book. THAT'S HOW YOU WRITE a book that leaves you wanting more. 
The writing was great, its pace perfect, fitting to certain scenes in the book. I was hooked, yes. It had a perfect mix of snark, steam (oh boy, the sex was hot! H.O.T.!!), and lots of action - the perfect cocktail.

Usually, I'm not a big fan of females in the book because they're a wee bit too whiney for me but Lily, my goodness, she has spunk! I loved her. She was smart, sexy, sarcastic and held her own. She's a woman on a mission. Lily is a transporter and her mission is to smuggle the stolen diamonds out of Africa and into Russia. She worked toward this for the past 5 years and nothing and no one will stand in her way....well, that was the plan. Until he rocked her bed, uhm, I mean world.

Marc. My gosh, he's the definition of bad-ass and rough. He's the thief who steals the for Lily. He's a ruthless Mercenary, a killer for hire, and was about to rock Lily's horizontal-life ;) 

"She screamed, her fingers clenching and unclenching, every muscle spasming, her whole body jerking underneath him....."

"That was...everything," she managed to whisper.
"Sweetheart, that was nothing."

But don't think these two are some sort of love birds; heck no. It's either they kick each other's butts or they rip their clothes off - I frigging loved it! 
I laughed, swooned, envied, and couldn't read fast enough.

Stylo wrote a well plotted, action-packed novel with plenty of plot twists and memorable characters. I love when I think I know how a book ends and the author surprises me, exactly what Stylo did. 
I can honestly say with this book she pushed herself right onto my favorite author list and her books will be some of my top recommendation for you all.

"Fucking spit on me, fucking hit me, fucking headbutted me!? Where the fuck did you come from!? he was yelling as he choked her.

"She looks like a pin-up, fucks like a porn star, and fights like Tyson"

Buckle up, this will be a fun ride ;) Oh and just a little heads up, you'll freaking love the side-character Kingsley aka hottest Brit ever!

**ends in a cliffhanger, but nothing that will overly kill you LOL**
