The Risk

Book: The Risk
Series: Mindf*ck #1-#5
Author: S.T. Abbey

They took too much.
Left too little.
I had nothing to lose...until him.
I didn't expect him.
I didn't want to fall in love.
But I can't let him go.
Logan Bennett makes the world a safer place.
He's brilliant.
He's a hero.
He locks away the sick and depraved.
But while he's saving lives, I'm taking them. Collecting the debts that are owed to me.
Ten years ago, they took from me. They left me for dead.
They should have made sure I stayed dead.
Now I'm taking from them.
One name at a time.
I've trained for too long.
I've been patient.
I can't stop now.
Revenge is best served cold...
They never see me coming, until I paint their walls red.
Logan doesn't know how they hurt me. He doesn't know about the screams they ignored. He doesn't know how twisted that town really is.
He just knows people are dying.
He doesn't know he's in love with their killer.
No one suspects a dead girl.
And Logan doesn't suspect the girl in his bed.
They're looking for a monster.
Not a girl who loves red.
Not a girl in love.
I'm a faceless nightmare.
At least until I tell them the story they've pretended never happened.
But in the end, will Logan choose them? Or will we watch them burn together? -Goodreads

Review: Lana is serial killer working through a kill list. She was traumatized as a teenager and is out for revenge. Logan is a profiler for the FBI. They meet at a coffee shop and have a connection. Little does he know that the killer he's looking for is right in front of him.

Don't let the sexy cover or the provocative series name fool you. Reading this was like watching a season of Criminal Minds and each book was an episode. There was an over-arcing storyline (Lana's revenge killings and Logan getting closer to her) while each book also had it's own plot. We know Lana is out for revenge but her reasons aren't fully fleshed out until the last book in the series. Logan is an all-around nice guy who falls in love with a killer. The question is, when he discovers who Lana really is, will their relationship survive?

This book started a little slow but I overall really enjoyed it. Lana has a kill list but we don't know her exact motivations. She has a connect with Logan, where will it go? 

Grade: 4/5
