✱✱Book Review✱✱ Killer Kiss (Saint View Strip Book 3) by Elle Thorpe

 


Kiss. Marry. Kill…

Kill? That’s easy. My family runs a murder for hire business. I can end a man in my sleep without so much as taking off my eye mask.

Marry? If my mother has her way, I’ll be walking down the aisle with her rival’s psychopath son. But Riddick is more likely to stab me during his vows than love and cherish me for a lifetime.

Kiss? My history with men says I’m better off with a vibrator. But then Augie Mitchell looks at me with his ocean blue eyes and I want to let him prove he’s as talented with his tongue as he claims to be.

Shame he’s my missing sister’s best friend and number one on my suspect list. I’d stick with battery operated orgasms, but the man gets under my skin and worse, worms his way into my heart.

Until a new target is given to me.

Augie Mitchell must die.

And I’m the one who has to kill him.

Killer Kiss is a male/female dark romantic suspense story set in the Saint View world. Each book in this series has a new couple and a happily ever after. It can be read as a standalone. It contains dark themes that may be triggering for some readers.

Momma Says: 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

If anyone can take a character who seems completely irredeemable and not only show us some redeeming qualities but also make us fall in love with that character, it's Elle Thorpe. I would've said there was no way I'd even like Augie, let alone find him redeemable. I even felt bad for him a couple of times! I suppose this book is pretty much a redemption story for both Augie and Ophelia. Neither of them is innocent by any stretch of the imagination, so it's only fitting that they find each other and a chance for love with each other. We also get to catch up with several Saint View characters, which is always good. It's also a lot of fun, depending on which characters we're visiting. In this case, I got to visit with some favorites, and that, combined with a totally dark and gritty romance, made Killer Kiss one of my favorite trips to Saint View! That's really saying something, considering the company this book is in. So, to sum it up, Killer Kiss is everything dark and dangerous I love about Elle Thorpe's books, and I can't wait to visit again.
