“I will return.”
Crosshairs is the second book in the Predator and Prey Series. This suspenseful contemporary romance offers an action-packed conclusion to the Predator and Prey Duet. I have been anticipating this book for so long, and Kate Stewart certainly delivered as Daniello and Taylor are back with a bang.
“I am your lover. I am your protector. I am all of these things.”
Crosshairs picks up directly after Camouflage. Daniello and Taylor are still drowning in each other. Their physical relationship full of intense sexual escapades and stolen moments together. The chemistry between these two is explosive. And as their relationship continues to flourish, Taylor begins to question her desire for more. Taylor wonders if Daniello is willing to give more of himself to her!
“I am your mirror.”
With Taylor’s sister back in her life, she is instantly thrust back into the dark memories of her past. Taylor must come to terms with the woman she was and how she transformed into the woman she has become. Remembering her past life brings and emotional toll on her, and she begins to question her present life and her involvement with Daniello. Beyond the physical dynamics between the two, Daniello has remained a stranger to her and yet, she has found a semblance of peace with him like she has never experienced before. As the emotional turmoil continues to build, the demons from her past threaten her future. As Daniello tries to intervene, he is swiftly torn away and Taylor must find the strength to fight for the life she has worked so hard to maintain.
“Before him, I was an empty woman, void of love. Without him, I’d lost my soul.”
Told in dual POV, Crosshairs contains a complex plot with fast action and intense relationships between the characters. The dynamics between Daniello and Taylor are extreme and full of fiery passion. Taylor is such a strong heroine, and I admired her strength and desire to persevere no matter the cost. In this installment, I especially enjoyed the manner in which Taylor revealed the pieces from her past. Laz, Ray, her sister, her mother, and her friend Cedric all contributed to Taylor’s successes or failures. Daniello’s family dynamics are equally as complex. The action and intrigue in this plot kept me on the edge of my seat the entire read.
Overall, I highly recommend the Predator and Prey Series to contemporary readers who like dark elements, smoking-hot passion, and strong characters. I have long been a fan of Kate Stewart, and the conclusion of Taylor and Daniello’s saga was well worth the wait!
