Orphaned on the streets as a baby, Nashville Brown, a.k.a Kill Operative 3, knows better than to rely on anyone. With heightened senses and superhuman strength to survive, she’s been raised as the perfect assassin.

The trick to her success? Keeping everyone, even her best friend, at arm’s length.

Losing his entire family in the span of a year, Carter Smith left his ability to love buried deep in their graves. His only concerns now are completing his missions and effortlessly charming the next temptress to warm his bed.

The key to his accomplishments? Working alone mixed with a Casanova smile.

But when a deadly weapon needs to be stopped from falling into the wrong hands, the lone wolves find themselves thrown into an explosive partnership. Can Carter and 3 lower their guns aimed at one another long enough to succeed, or will their unwillingness to compromise end up destroying more than their perfect records? Whatever their differences, both agree on one thing—in the game of lies and deceit, the line between friend and foe is often blurred by blood splatter.

My Thoughts:

I was provided with an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.

WOW, this book blew me away! It was very different from The Dreamer trilogy and I absolutely loved! It really amazes me when an author can venture out to different genres and hit it out of the park. 

Nashville works as an undercover agent, she possesses super human abilities that make her one of the best agents in her agency. Carter is also an undercover agent for a sister agency and he does things a little differently than Nashville. This novel is told from dual perspective; it was nice to see what was going through both our characters minds. 

Nashville was such a kick ass character; I really liked reading about her and her abilities! She also went through some character development trough out the novel that I enjoyed. Oh, Carter what can I say about him I think I enjoyed his chapters more than Nashville’s just because he was so carefree and made me laugh out loud way to many times. The relationship that builds between Carter and Nashville was done very well, Carter had to work for Nashville and it was not insta-love; that’s always refreshing. 

There was one thing that bumped my five starts to four and that was the bits of Spanish throughout the book, sometimes the way the way they were used just didn’t make sense, but other than that I really thoroughly enjoyed this book. Mellow hooked me from the first page and didn’t let me go till the end, she hit me with some unexpected twists that had me at the edge of my seat! E.J. Mellow has become one of my favorite authors and I can't wait to see what else she has in store for us. If you're in the mood for an action packed romance I recommend you give The Animal under the Fur a go.
