“This story is definitely darker and edgier, while still being sexy and stimulating.” ~ Under the Covers

In the Company of Killers is exactly the type of series that it sounds like.  It’s dark and will test your comfort zones.  In REVIVING IZABEL I feel we went deeper into stretching my comfort levels.  Our heroine, Sarai, is supposed to be living an unassuming life away from the dangers of Victor’s lifestyle.  And away from her past.  But she can’t leave well enough alone.  She wants vengeance.

So Sarai will become Izabel again.  Where Sarai is a sweet normal girl, Izabel is daring and… a wannabe killer.  I was both attracted by this new tougher version of her, just as much as I was disturbed by some of her way of thinking.  The fact that she wants Victor is one thing, even the fact that she would just accept what his job is, but the fact that she wants to be like him really pushed my limits.  I didn’t know how to feel at times with that.

This story is definitely darker and edgier, while still being sexy and stimulating.  Victor opens up and softens a bit, showing his love for Izabel.  So as she toughens up, he softens.  I guess you could say they meet in a happy medium.  I still think I liked the first book better than this one, even though this was a good story.

The hero for the next book is set up in this one and I’m intrigued.  Can’t say I’m excited and highly anticipating it.  But it should be interesting.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
