Elle Kennedy is a talented writer who makes the characters come to life. Her writing style made me feel as though I was right there in the middle of all the action. I know I can always count on Elle Kennedy for an entertaining story and she didn’t disappoint me. This is the fourth book in the Killer Instincts series and each one is a standalone. What a fast paced, thrilling story.
