Hunter by Eden Summers - 3.8 Stars [arc review]
|Hunter, Eden Summers|
This is the first book I've read by Eden Summers and I enjoyed it. It was a great late night read! Short and sweet 😉
The hunter has become the hunted.
I’ve been running for ten years—fleeing my past and clawing my way toward an inescapable act of vengeance.
Until he walks into my life, sure and strong and full of secrets.
He dilutes my thirst for retribution with his touch. He obliterates my need for solitude with his kiss. But it’s his hidden agenda that makes the hair on the back of my neck prickle.
He wants something. Something that doesn’t revolve around sweaty skin and tangled silk sheets like he’d have me believe.
I have to stop falling for him, otherwise the last ten years will all be for nothing. I need to keep running, keep fighting for vengeance, even though I know he will track me down.
But trying to escape him is just another problem. Because now I crave the hunt.
Things I like:
Hunter! The man is sure of himself and whenever you are reading a bad boy/mafia/etc type of book that is a must. So in that sense it delivered.
Sarah was a great main character. Well developed and well written. She is a tough strong woman but also one that needs and lacks love. I felt for her and loved her bravery.
The book was fast paced and had all you could hope for: romance, drama, secrets, revenge, passion... It had a great plot.
Things I didn't think were great:
Also Hunter. There was no character development really... by the end of the book I felt I knew as much about him as I did when he first showed up. How did he get into the business of killing people? how come his relationship with his boss is such a close one? Are they family? like family? The guy is a mystery, which is part of the charm but it is also part of the reason it will be eventually forgotten.
The narrative to start felt a little chopped. The sentences were to short and the story therefore didn't always flow naturally.
All in all not a bad romance and one worth giving it a try! I am glad i requested it.
