Rachel Farrington
I should never have taken the dangerous shortcut to the frat party. It was in that unlit alley where I saw a fellow student brutally murdered and when I was put on the cartel leader’s hit list. As a federal witness, I thought I was safe in the protective custody of the FBI… that is until I woke up chained in the monster’s basement. When a powerful and lethal soldier, Ryder Axton—claiming to be a bounty hunter—tells me that he’s there to rescue me, I know it’s a lie. The only thought I have is how I can possibly kill him and get free. But after a series of unexplainable experiences that defy death, the overwhelmingly rugged, sexy, dirty-minded, Navy Seal trained, hot blooded bounty hunter—who obviously plays by his own rules—just might win my trust. He’s not an ordinary man. He’s strong, dark and deadly, his past is mysterious and his motives unreadable. He is made of the stuff of myth and legend, and of ink and steel. Is Ryder for real? Or is he employed by my captor for a more sinister purpose?

Ryder Axton
I always fight hard, fuck harder, and never let myself get personally involved. But my assignment, to apprehend the suspect Eduardo Miguel comes to a grinding halt when I find the missing federal witness held captive in his basement. It becomes fucking personal, fast! Making sure Farrington is safe even if it—or more likely she—kills me, is now my only mission. But she’s terrified and fights me at every turn. Earning her trust becomes more than a way to save both our lives, it’s like an addictive drug, I need it—I need her to trust me—like I need the air to breathe. When she begins investigating into the hidden parts of my soul, I almost can’t deny her. I know I can protect her, I know I could pleasure her in one explosive night she’ll always remember and I’ll never forget. What I don’t know is how it feels to fall hard… until now. But getting too close to me, seems to come with an ominous curse.
Just when I thought I had nothing to lose, I was wrong.
Can we both defy death… again?

This is the third offering in the Brothers of Ink and Steel series and it’s time to find out more about the mysterious dark and brooding Ryder. Although this is actually part of a series is can be read as a standalone as well but if you do you will miss out on so much.
When college student Rachel witness a murder she is automatically placed under witness protection, a scheme Ryder knows all too well from being a child. Soon Rachel’s life is in grave danger and the only one who can save her is bounty hunter Ryder, but will he be enough when no one else can be trusted and can he save himself in the process.
Firstly this book is unlike the others in that the story content is much darker than we are used to but having said that the book is still just as wonderful as the others in the series. Ryder is everything I wanted in the main character and more, tall, handsome, brooding and completely alpha at all times. The dynamic between him and the other brothers as always provided much light relief against the back drop of murder and mayhem.
I loved this book and watching the love affair between Rachel and Ryder unfold was simply wonderful. If I have one complaint I would have liked another chapter between the end and the epilogue I felt as though something was missing or maybe I just wanted more Ryder !
Really looking forward to the next book in the series Allie never lets us down.
