Take the Key and Lock Her Up by Lena Diaz

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Dark and twisted best describe this latest in the Deadly Games series. The bonus with this book is it also kicks off a new series.

All the Buchanan’s from the previous books are back with Devlin being the main hero of this one. Devlin’s job is a little darker than his brother’s. He is an assassin for a group called EXIT Inc (which is also the name of the new series). The author waste no time throwing you in the middle of chaos and you’re hanging on for the rollercoaster of a ride from start to finish.

This book is filled with so many twists and turns that giving away too much of the plot I fear would ruin it for other readers. All I have to say this is a very intense romantic suspense and soo worth the read. With as dark as things got in this one, my curiosity is piqued for the new series.
