Orphaned on the streets as a baby, Nashville Brown, a.k.a Kill Operative 3, knows better than to rely on anyone. With heightened senses and superhuman strength to survive, she’s been raised as the perfect assassin.
The trick to her success? Keeping everyone, even her best friend, at arm’s length.
Losing his entire family in the span of a year, Carter Smith left his ability to love buried deep in their graves. His only concerns now are completing his missions and effortlessly charming the next temptress to warm his bed.
The key to his accomplishments? Working alone mixed with a Casanova smile.
But when a deadly weapon needs to be stopped from falling into the wrong hands, the lone wolves find themselves thrown into an explosive partnership. Can Carter and 3 lower their guns aimed at one another long enough to succeed, or will their unwillingness to compromise end up destroying more than their perfect records? Whatever their differences, both agree on one thing—in the game of lies and deceit, the line between friend and foe is often blurred by blood splatter.
The Animal Under The Fur is a hate-to-loath-to-love standalone novel filled with savagery, secrets, and enough angst to wrinkle the pages you’ll find gripped in your hands.
How do I even begin to describe how amazing this book is? Its so full of badass comebacks, action-packed and girl power. I couldn’t put this book down by the fact that its so awesome that I wouldn’t even ask for anything to change.
I love how their paths cross towards one another and no matter how much they want to hate and loathe the other, it’s not even possible because their attractions and fond wins and consumes them both. Nashville a.k.a 3 is definitely who I aspire to be where in a different universe I’m either a spy or an assassin. (as if!) She’s just so badass and fearless and makes the term nothing can bring you down to a whole new level.
Let’s not even forget about Carter! Man, he is super swoon-worthy and sweet. If Nashville wouldn’t and refuse to see the beauty of a certain Italian stud, I swear I would knock some sense into her for being so stupid and blind.
All in all, I can only say good things about this book and I’d definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking for a gripping action story with a twist of romance.
