When Neeka McCarthy is kidnapped, her rescue is up to Gage Mack, who specializes in getting the job done.
In the first installment of the Contract Killers series, author Jenika Snow delivers a spicy thriller with GAGE. This book lays the foundation for an exciting series with all of Ms. Snow's trademark sauciness.
With a plot straight out of a sci fi film, Neeka finds herself in a fight for her life. She and Gage are thrown together in close quarters, causing the sensual sparks to fly.
There's a true bad guy in the story, complete with his grand plans to take over the world with super soldiers. The flaw in the plan is Neeka's lack of participation.
Gage is a rather complex character. Because he will do whatever it takes to keep Neeka safe, he has no qualms about crossing the line between good and bad. As a result, he would likely be described as a good man who does bad things for good reasons. I really liked his sense of focus in searching for Neeka.
The ending has a fantastic teaser for future installments. With a solid mix of a good plot, interesting characters and some deliciously hot encounters, Jenika Snow has once again delivered the goods.

Gage Mack has been contracted for a search and rescue mission but it quickly becomes far more complicated by what he finds and by the instant attraction he feels for his client's daughter in this exciting paranormal romance.
Her rescuer is dangerous and has no problem killing right in front of her but that doesn't distract the instant attraction Neeka feels for Gage. These strong compelling characters draw readers along with them as they try to keep a lock on their emotions during all the chaos of escaping a madman. Adrenaline pumping excitement starts the story off and the suspense building tension continues throughout as Neeka finds herself in a twisted prison and her rescue is complicated by betrayals and unexpected twists. The well written, fast paced and smooth flowing plot keeps readers on the edge of their seat with lots of suspense, excitement and a romance that is complicated by the situation and Gage's occupation.
The story has lots of interesting elements and a fascinating idea. I was certainly caught up in it and looking forward to the next one but I can't help but feel that this quick story would be better if it played out a bit more.
