Stone-hearted Predator. Hired Gun.
But I just call him “Daddy”.
A man who hides in the shadows to seek his prey. The battle scars on his face conceal him from the world. He’s a professional problem solver and I’m his biggest pain in the butt.
He’s formidable. Focussed. Chased by fiends both real and imagined.
But beneath the cynical, stern exterior lies a true and tender heart – one that needs to command me.
Too bad he’s employed by bad guys to haul me in and punish me for my so-called crimes.
Even though I’m tempted to remain and solve the mystery of his demanding discipline, I know I have to escape and flee from his desire.
He and I don’t stand a chance.
I’m his enemy. A computer hacking, book reading, board game playing nerd who pissed off the villains that sent Liam to find me. Once he delivers me to them, my geeky days on this earth are over.
But his lips scorch my soul and fuse me to him. They say that only in the darkness can you see the stars, and under the spell of twilight, his devouring kisses shoot me up to the heavens.
He tells me I’m a good girl. But I must run away, half-hoping all the while he’ll catch me and keep me.

Book Estuary Review
The Capturer and The Captured
This is my first read of Olivia Fox’s book and I received a free copy of this book from Booksprout and I’m posting this complementary review voluntarily. This book tells the story of Bella and Liam. As mentioned in the book details above, Bella is a professional hacker, a nerd, and a bookworm. She is also beautiful and sexy. Liam on the other hand is a hired gun employed to catch Bella. He has a battle scar on the face but he is sexy as hell as shown in the book cover. Looking at the book cover, I never actually thought that Liam is anything but perfectly handsome and very manly.
The Action and The Attraction
It was lust at first sight for Liam and Bella but since both of them are in the middle of the mission. That is, Liam’s goal to capture Bella and deliver her to his employer in exchange of bounty while Bella is determined to find his father and expose the wrongdoings of the people behind her capture. At first, they fight the attraction between them but I must say with less determination because they immediately give in after a short time. I actually find the romance build-up between the two too rushed. There are enough steamy and naughty parts and a lot of dirty talking too. Two done in the cabin and another in a secluded island. I don’t want to say much so you can find out on your own. But, it is definitely a HEA for the two.
I don’t want to comment much about the storyline to avoid so many spoilers but I cannot really find enough emotions in the book to connect me deeply with the characters. But, it is definitely a short and sexy read. On the creative side, I must say, this is a well-written book with poetic analogies. If you are looking for an alpha-male hero with a preference for kinky sex then this book is definitely for you. It is also a dual-POV so you get to see the thinking of both the hero and the heroine. I give this book my 4-star rating.
