REVIEW - Freelance by Becca Vincenza




TITLE - Freelance
AUTHOR - Becca Vincenza





(Releases Nov 18th)


Blurb:

Finally free from her overprotective shifter parents, Eden is ready to discover what it means to live like a human. However, a night out at a club brings her face to face with a shifter mercenary claiming she’s his mark. The human world isn’t all she’d hoped it would be, but it will take a lot more than some hitman to make her give up her freedom and go running home.


Dominic has completed every job he’s ever accepted, gaining respect and notoriety as a mercenary. He lives by his motto: Mercs don’t ask questions; money gets any job done. When he discovers his next mark is human and his mate, he realized there might be something more important than his reputation.



Review:

Freelance is a good and quick read. Becca Vincenza is a great author who knows how to draw readers into her stories. This is the second book I have read from her and I want to read more now. She has a way for taking characters and putting them in precarious situations which sets the scene for them to explore their chemistry. I really love this about this author.

Freelance has a good plot. It is about a human girl who was taken in by shifters, but has now decided to go out and be on her own in the world. Little does she know the world is not as safe as she thinks it is. I love this plot. I like the mystery of it and how the character has no clue what is happening. I also love how the author leaves you in suspense until nearly the end. 

While I found the “whodunit” predictable myself, it was still exhilarating to have my suspicions confirmed.

I really love the main characters in Freelance. Dominic and Eden are two very dynamic characters. Dominic himself has a secret and I love trying to guess what it was. Once it is revealed, it just adds to the story even more. Eden has some spunk to her. I love how even when she was afraid, she still stuck her ground. She is a fighter which I love in my female characters. The chemistry these two have together flies off the pages.

The heat in this book is in surplus. There are a lot of steamy scenes between the two main characters. The mystery and tension in the story helps add to this heat by adding another layer of depth to the story. When these two get together, sparks fly, and not always in a good way! If you like a lot of heat in your book, this is the book for you!

In conclusion, this is a really good story. I really liked all of it. I also realized after I had read the whole story, I previously read another book from this author that I like just as much. I would recommend this book to my friends for a hot and steamy quick read! Great story.
