Reaper By Kris Michaels
Book/Novel Author: Kris Michaels
Book/Novel Title: Reaper
Hindsight–– is always 20/20. For the assassin known as Reaper, the chances he missed were displayed in perfect resolution every time he went back. Back to her, the only woman he’d ever loved. Back to where his life ended and then started again. The regrets had become too heavy, and he intended this trip home to be his last. Memories–– hold no future. Harmony Flinn had a chance to leave the drudgery of her small-town existence. The man she loved left her long ago, and he never came back. Her life was empty except for her art. When presented the chance of a lifetime, she’d grabbed onto that hope and jumped at the opportunity. Her desire to live anywhere but where she was landed her in a world she didn’t recognize with a lurking evil her past hadn’t prepared her to evade. A Collision–– of the past and the present. Reaper’s mission was simple, find and eliminate a monster. With no anchor in the past to ground him, he threw himself into his next kill. His target’s trail led him to a web of illegal deals and vicious crimes that curled through Paris’ underbelly. His target sat in the middle of the swirling evil that had encircled Harmony with its shadow of death. Reaper had made a deal with the devil years ago. Now, he delivered Satan’s chosen for Guardian, to protect the innocents of this world. Only the innocent this time was his woman and Reaper would walk through the fire-singed sands of Hell to save her.
This whole series so far has been stellar and added to the other Guardian books the whole library of works is just brilliant. Amazing backstories that help the reader understand where the characters have been and what makes them the alpha women and men they are and defines why they have love and trust and integrity at the fore at all times. So looking forward to the next instalments.
As always Kris Michaels you knocked this one out of the park. Reaper and Harmony are just another perfect pair to add to the Guardian series. You kept them believable and human. Reaper’s love for both Harmony and his fellow Shadows was palpable throughout the book. The way he watches out for Phoenix just solidified his humanity and believability as a Guardian Protector.
She did it again. Kris Michaels hit it out of the park. The ending teaser may kill me though. Now I have to wait a couple of weeks for the next book. This isn’t a cliffhanger but a full story of Reaper and Harmony. They have their HEA but the main over arching storyline continues and is teased in the final paragraph.
A story full of intrigue, suspense, romance and sex. The character are incredible and you have to know more about them. The romance is great. I couldn’t put it down.
Disappointed. The H & h are not together until 67% into the book. Together meaning they are not even in the same room together until 67% in (except the one time the pass each). I can’t get into a book when the H & h don’t even have scenes together. Then he leaves her in a situation so she can find out information for them. The other operatives want to pull her out because she’s an innocent yet the man who supposedly loves wants to leave her where she’s at. And for what? She finds out nothing. Spends her days locked in an apartment by herself. That is until she’s kidnapped and almost killed because they suck at their job. Then she paints the hero’s picture even though he’s working undercover. Ummm, ok. It was boring and the thriller/action part was dumb.
All the books in and tied to the Guardian series are superb writing. Reaper was a great character and the sweet relationship to Harmony is a little different than her previous stories but no less enjoyable. I love how she keeps all the characters tied together and really makes you look forward to each of their stories. I can honestly say that I read these books over and over again. Ms. Michael’s writing is action packed and filled with character depth. The love scenes are hot and steamy without taking over the storyline. Can’t wait for more!!
