Review: Crosshairs by Kate Stewart

Series: Predator & Prey #2
Genre: Erotic Romance, Suspense
Author: Kate Stewart
Release Date: June 30, 2017

Safe.

It’s a liar’s word. No one is ever truly safe.

Daniello still haunted me—in my bed, in my dreams, in a ridiculous notion of a future we would never have.

I was drawn to darkness, and he was the abyss.

My love for him made me flesh and bone—vulnerable.

I was finally a woman with something to lose and would do anything to keep it.
But when my past caught up with my present, it became clear that safe would forever remain an illusion.

Laz was coming for us, his looming darkness a threat to the life I carefully designed.

Armed with hope, and ready for battle, I never imagined the casualties of the war that came to me.

And then I lost all control.

****This is the conclusion to the Predator and Prey Duet.

This Cinderella had no prince waiting, but she didn’t need one and never would. No, this Cinderella had run with the rats, fucked a prince or two, and decided that self-worth was superior to being second to a man’s ego.

Now it’s been a hot minute since I first read Camouflage but it didn’t take me long to be sucked right back into the world of Predator and Prey. Kate Stewart brings a fiery, suspenseful, and heart pounding conclusion to a story that owned me from the very beginning. It’s impossible not to become completely wrapped up in her words and her characters. She truly has a gift for creating some of the most vivid, unapologetically broken and unorthodox characters. And let me tell you, it doesn’t get more unorthodox than Taylor and Daniello.

She was no whore; she was untouchable. A self-made picture of perseverance that drew breath and exhaled fire.
A phoenix.
My phoenix.

It’s rare that I read about a heroine that truly owns her sexuality and Taylor was the epitome of power and sex. This is a woman that didn’t just fight to the top; she almost sold her soul for it. She makes no bones about who she is. She doesn’t feel bad for herself. She knows who she is and she owns it. While her heart was broken by life and lovers past, no one has truly made it beat quite as much as a man that’s even more untouchable to her today as he was before. A threat to everything she holds dear; his secrets may just cost her everything.

He was a threat to all I had built. A fatal blow to the reputation I had carefully crafted. He would tear my castle apart and ruin my kingdom if I let him. Because I loved him. Someone had to love the fucking villain.

Everything truly comes to a head here. I swear I could feel my pulse pounding through my fingers with every page I turned. It was impossible to put down. I was starving for more details of Daniello. Who is he? What does he do? This man is cloaked in danger and oozes sex from his every pore. He’s utterly magnetic and I couldn’t get enough of him.

We clung to each other as he tore me apart piece by piece and fed me for his absence. My body repeatedly shuddered as he commanded it. At his mercy, an ocean of feeling swept between us as he silenced my doubts with every soothing touch of his hands.

As desperate as I was for more information about Daniello, I was just as desperate for more of Taylor’s past. The mysterious Ray, the ultimate devastating destruction of her childhood love, her sister and the danger that follows them into the present. All of it completely sucked me in, leaving me desperately turning the pages well into the night.

Years of living like a savage had forced me to a place where very little light existed, but Taylor’s light forced her way under my skin and into my veins.

This was one of the most satisfying conclusions to a duet I’ve read in a long damn while. It was worth every second of the wait. It was, in a word, perfection. It was gritty and sexy, heart stopping, and unputdownable.

If you’re looking for a romance that’s different, with enigmatic characters that are so vivid you feel like they practically jump off the pages, and a story that’s full of twists and turns, then look no further. Because you just found your next addiction!

I lived my life by two principles: order and excellence.
My moral compass steered me out of the slums of backwoods Tennessee and towards the woman I was destined to become, but not without gathering a few skeletons along the way.

Eventually, I found success, but my restless, relentless nature still left me feeling unsatisfied.

Then I met a ghost of a man.

At first, I was sure Daniello was a figment of my imagination, a beautiful and dangerous apparition with a fat cock and an animalistic hunger. He threatened my control and need for order, and in his absence, I became more haunted by my past.

He wanted me submissive.

I wanted to know him.

Then my ghost met my skeletons.

***EROTIC SUSPENSE***
Camouflage is the first full length book of a duet.

Two things were clear to me in that moment. I wanted to fuck this man. And he would be very, very bad for me.

Well, hell. That was certainly…different. It was also erotic as hell, a little gritty and a whole hell of a lot entertaining. Angelica Chase has a certain edge to her writing that I’ve come to be a bit addicted to. She doesn’t write traditional characters, there are no cookie cutter hero or heroines to be found here. Hell no! After binging myself on her Excess series, I couldn’t wait for Taylor’s story. Taylor was Nina’s assistant turned business partner and you just knew that right below the surface were brewing some dark desires. And boy was I right!

Taylor Ellison is unapologetically sexual. This is a woman that enjoys sex for what it is and has no grand illusions of love or a relationship being attached to it. She’s also inexplicably drawn to a man that seems to be oozing danger from his every pore. She knows nothing about him aside from knowing she wants him. It’s a cat and mouse game but with an added edge because this man is danger clouded in mystery.

Who are you?” I asked aloud, thought I didn’t mean to. He paused his hand and leaned in with a whisper.
“I am the man who will disappear from your bed one night without any explanation.”

Now if you’re a fan of more…erm…orthodox relationships, this book may not be for you. What takes place between Taylor and Daniello is nothing of what may constitute as normal. Hell, if Taylor wasn’t lusting after him they way she does, it’s borderline dub con at times. Though truth be said, it’s skating the edge of dub con without fully diving into it which just makes it slightly more delicious.

Daniello is a dangerous enigma filled with so much sexual prowess, the mere mention of his name alone had me feeling hot and bothered. This is a man that makes no apologies for who he is, promises nothing, and takes rather than asks for what he wants. While Taylor is an extremely strong female lead, there’s something about Daniello that demands her submission no matter how much she may hate it. I liked Taylor just as much as Nina. It’s refreshing to read a heroine that makes no excuses for her sex life and owns who she is.

Taylor’s history is definitely not an easy one and that’s what this book truly delves into. You get to see how and where she grew up and witness the events that led her to turn into the power-hungry and take charge woman that she is today.

As always, Angelica Chase delivers on some incredibly erotic scenes that will make you squirm in your seats.

I’d never been kissed that way, touched that way, coveted that way, fucked that way, and I was truly addicted. And I’d never in my life wanted a man more than I did in that moment.

But while you get to see the progression of Taylor’s character, you still know next to nothing of Daniello. He remains a mystery until the last page which only served to whet my appetite for the next book. You know he’s dangerous and you certainly know he’s not a good guy. Though how bad is he?

Camouflage gives the reader just enough to hook them and yet leave them begging for more answers. And the twist at the end? Hoo boy! I can’t wait to see how all this resolves!
