They call me Rage.

My real name is like a shadow, always close behind, but never quite able to catch up to me.

I fly under the radar because no one ever suspects I’m capable of the kind of brutal violence I commit each and every day.

You see, I’m a girl. I’m nineteen.

And I'm a killer.

I look like a goddamn cheerleader, but can take out a man three times my size in more than as many ways, without hesitation.

This life is all I know. It’s all I want to know. It keeps the shit buried that I need kept buried. It allows me to live without thinking too much.

Without dwelling on the past.

Until him.

It all changes when an ordinary boy becomes my next target.

And my first love.

I have to choose.

The only life I’ve ever known has to die, or he does.

Either way, I’ll be the one pulling the trigger...

My thoughts…

Ever since she was a child, Rage had known she was different.  She lacks empathy and is emotionally detached from other people. Aside from her parents and one close friend, Cody, she doesn't care for others.  Cody recognizes that there is something different about Rage.  Cody teachers her how to show emotions for different situations, that way she could blend in and not have her parents constantly worry about her.

Despite her attempts to blend in, Rage can’t deny the violent urges coursing through her.  When she meets a killer one night, Smoke, he offers her a way out. She leaves her family and Cody behind, and begins her training as a contract killer.  Her parents are not aware of her new job, they think she is traveling and forming friendships, Rage makes sure to call them daily just to check in.

Her next mission is Nolan, just a simple job to get information about his parents.  It’s starts as surveillance, that turns into babysitting after rescuing him from drowning in the filthiest swimming pool.  Which Rage is extremely upset about, she is also a germaphobe.  As she gets closer to Nolan she realizes he is far from the typical college boy. Like her, he has hidden depths under his good guy looks and none of what he hides is good.  Rage isn’t sure how to deal with what she’s “feeling” towards Nolan, she understands that there is something happening because she doesn’t want to kill him.

Rage was one of the best heroines I've ever read. I loved that she had this innocence about her when it came to relationships, her portrayal and the fact that she had so many layers.  Nolan was such a lovable character, he was protective, commanding and loyal towards Rage.  He really held his own in this one, even though Rage was a hardened killer, he never tried to change her and was perfect for her in every way.

This is a dark and gritty romance that consumed every second of my time and I truly loved it.

Happy Reading ~ Jovi
