What I Thought
I enjoyed this prequel to the crossed series. Its made me add the rest of the series to my ‘books to buy’ list.
Crossed is packed with action, excitement, mystery, lust and wit. The characters are fun and bounce off each other, creating laugh out loud moments, but then they also learn they have to be guarded and cautious.
After past heartbreak, Grace vows to live her life and is looking for ‘the one’. Playboy Hunter has worked hard on a case for three years, a case that leads him to Grace. The attraction is instant between the two, but Grace needs to be protected from the danger Hunter has been working on. Dramas, sexual attraction and intense feelings, lead Hunter down a path of having to make a choice. To end Grace’s family or come to a compromise to keep her happy but safe and in his life.
Crossed is a quick and easy, but also enjoyable read. Lacey Silks has a great writing style and this is a great introduction to the series.
