Book Review:

Prime Target was a fast-paced suspenseful book about Roman, an assassin pretending to be a bookstore owner. Roman also has one customer that he has grown attached to even though he doesn’t want to. Everly, reciprocates his feelings, but Roman has a hard time acting upon them. When they finally have a night together Roman’s fears come true and he will do anything to protect Everly.

I really enjoyed reading Roman and Everly’s story; I felt the chemistry from the very beginning. Since this book was short, we didn’t get much of a backstory, it was more the here and now. Childhoods weren’t spoken about and I really didn’t know much about Everly. At the end not having the backstory made something parts a little confusing, but still enjoyable. Prime Target was also told in duel POV, but we only get Everly’s POV in two chapters, the majority was Roman, which I really enjoyed!

Marquita Valentine never lets me down and I can’t wait to read book two!
