The Setting - Taken from Goodreads
Sarai was only fourteen
when her mother uprooted her to live in Mexico with a notorious drug
lord. Over time she forgot what it was like to live a normal life, but
she never let go of her hope to escape the compound where she has been
held for the past nine years.
Victor is a cold-blooded assassin
who, like Sarai, has known only death and violence since he was a young
boy. When Victor arrives at the compound to collect details and payment
for a hit, Sarai sees him as her only opportunity for escape. But things
don’t go as planned and instead of finding transport back to Tucson,
she finds herself free from one dangerous man and caught in the clutches
As Victor and Sarai
slowly build a trust, the differences between them seem to lessen, and
an unlikely attraction intensifies. But Victor’s brutal skills and
experience may not be enough in the end to save her, as the power she
unknowingly holds over him may ultimately be what gets her killed.
My Two Cents
Okay I admit, I was sucked in by the introduction. Assassins always perk me up for some reason. But let me first be completely honest with you; it was a small miracle that I finished this book. I really hated it. But let's not get carried away. Here's what I first initially liked in Killing Sarai. I liked how Victor, the stone-cold assassin did not change character just to run away with a girl. If you're going to be heartless, doesn't it take more than a beautiful woman to change your evil ways? And I liked the fast-paced, action-packed beginning. But that's where my likes ended for this book. There was way to many sex scenes and Victor and Sarai's relationship was strained at best. Sorry, I just really didn't feel the love. Couple that with the fact that Sarai grated on every last nerve I ever had in my body. She never truly thought about her actions or the consequences and she put way too much trust in the hands of a killer. So, to sum it up, I'm giving Killing Sarai 2 out of 5 stars. And that's only because somehow I finished the book. So don't kill yourself (or your time) reading Killing Sarai.
