Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Title: Arctic Bite
Series: Forgotten Brotherhood #2
Author: N.J. Walters
I hadn’t read the first book in this series but didn’t feel like I’d missed anything to detract from my enjoyment of this story. It is an action packed paranormal adventure and romance featuring a wide array of different species.
Alexi Medvedev is a member of the Forgotten Brotherhood and he’s been hired to find and kill Cassie Dobbs. Alexi never agrees to carry out an assassination until he has confirmed that the paranormal deserves to die so always checks the target out first. This time, however, his attraction to the intended target – and hers to him – makes this for a dilemma filled story! With others out to get her, him wanting to protector and both of them having secrets regarding their own nature, this is a very different romance.
The story has great characters, plenty of surprises, danger, threats, powerful beings and, of course, a very hot and steamy romance. Alexi is such a fierce and protective lead, his back story is very moving, too. As for Cassie, well she’s on the run but just why and from whom you’ll have to read it for yourself to find out!
I requested and was gifted a copy of this book via NetGalley and this is my honest review after choosing to read it and finding it to be a fascinating paranormal romance.
Being immortal doesn’t mean you can’t die. It just means you’re damn hard to kill.
When Alexei Medvedev joined the Forgotten Brotherhood—paranormals hired to assassinate other paranormals—he knew it wouldn’t be a cake walk. But his next target is one of Death’s own Reapers gone rogue. For the first time since he started this gig, “damn hard to kill” feels more like “damn near impossible.”
Tracking Cassie Dobbs brings him to a remote bar in small-town Alaska, where this hot-as-hell Reaper is casually serving drinks, as if she doesn’t have a bounty on her head from Death himself. Alexei is dangerously intrigued. Everyone in the Brotherhood knows the first rule: don’t fall for your target.
But Alexei soon has bigger problems to face than an unexpected attraction. They only send assassins after those who deserve to die…or so he’s been made to believe. Now that he’s met Cassie, though, he’s not so sure.
What if everything he’s been told is a lie, and the person he’s been sent to kill is the only one who knows the truth?
