Assassin's Touch by Laurie London
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This book had me hooked from the start. I love when a story just dives right in and explains as needed. The pace was great and had me making discoveries right alongside the characters.
Neyla is a reluctant recruit of the army. In a world where people with paranormal skills are mandatory recruits, she's essentially a prisoner in her own world. There is a war between the two existing worlds (the Cascadians and the Pacificans) and it is primarily waged around the portal linking the two. On a mission to find one of these portals, Neyla is betrayed by her own team and kidnapped by the Cascadians. Rickert is a Cascadian determined to assassinate as many of the Pacificans as he can. All his plans start to fall apart when he comes upon the injured woman wearing a Pacifican uniform.
It started innocently enough, with him making promises to turn her over to the jailers, but when he touches her bare skin, they are both shown an erotic vision of a possible future between them. Both of them end up looking at things in a different light after spending a bit of time in close quarters. These two are a perfect pairing and I almost wish the book was longer so we could get even more of these two. Maybe we see them in future installments?
