Title: Killing Sarai
Series: In The Company Of Killers, #1
Author: J.A. Redmerski
Rating: 3 Shooting Stars

From the author of the New York Times, USA Today & Wall Street Journal bestselling novel, THE EDGE OF NEVER, comes a story of passion and survival…

 Sarai was only fourteen when her mother uprooted her to live in Mexico with a notorious drug lord. Over time she forgot what it was like to live a normal life, but she never let go of her hope to escape the compound where she has been held for the past nine years.

 Victor is a cold-blooded assassin who, like Sarai, has known only death and violence since he was a young boy. When Victor arrives at the compound to collect details and payment for a hit, Sarai sees him as her only opportunity for escape. But things don’t go as planned and instead of finding transport back to Tucson, she finds herself free from one dangerous man and caught in the clutches of another.

 While on the run, Victor strays from his primal nature as he succumbs to his conscience and resolves to help Sarai. As they grow closer, he finds himself willing to risk everything to keep her alive; even his relationship with his devoted brother and liaison, Niklas, who now like everyone else wants Sarai dead. 

 As Victor and Sarai slowly build a trust, the differences between them seem to lessen, and an unlikely attraction intensifies. But Victor’s brutal skills and experience may not be enough in the end to save her, as the power she unknowingly holds over him may ultimately be what gets her killed.

 This is their story…

Killing Sarai is a lot different than what I was thinking. It is not your typical "kidnapped" type of story. At the age of fourteen Sarai is taken to live with a drug lord. The past nine years she has lived through rape, murder, physical and emotional abuse. All at the hands of a major drug lord in Mexico. When Victor, an American, arrives at the compand to get details for a hit Sarai knows that this is the only chance she has to try to get away. So she gets into his car and makes him drive away from the compound. But everything goes wrong when Sarai realizes that this person she's with doesn't really have very many human emotions. He doesn't seem to care weather she lives or dies. And he's going to use her if he has to in order to get the job he was suppose to do done.

 While they are together though Victor decides to help Sarai, and he can't seem to keep himself away from her. They both start developing feelings for each other that neither of them understand very well. And not only his the drug lord after them but so are Victor's people. This book is majorly intense. I really did like it, but I just couldn't bring myself to love it. I really felt like something was off some how. However, I thought the ending was amazing and I can not wait for the next book. The writing is wonderful, and I really fell in love with the characters. But I just sort of got bored with the story at times. And I really wish that we could have seen Victor with more emotions. I also didn't understand a few of the things that happened in the book, and it isn't ever mentioned again after just that once time. I did enjoy it though, and I do look forward to the next book.
