Love Me to Death

Six years ago, Lucy Kincaid was attacked and nearly killed by an online predator. She survived. Her attacker did not. Now Lucy’s goal is to join the FBI and fight cyber-crime, but in the meantime, she’s volunteering with a victim’s rights group, surfing the Web undercover to lure sex offenders into the hands of the law. But when the predators she hunts start turning up as murder victims, the FBI takes a whole new interest in Lucy. 
With her future and possibly even her freedom suddenly in jeopardy, Lucy discovers she’s a pawn in someone’s twisted plot to mete out vigilante justice. She joins forces with security expert and daredevil Sean Rogan, and together they track their elusive quarry from anonymous online chat rooms onto the mean streets of Washington, D.C. But someone else is shadowing them: A merciless stalker has his savage eye on Lucy. The only way for her to escape his brutality may be another fight to the death.

I came across this book while I was browsing ebooks on OverDrive, ebook library provided through my local library.  I have heard of the author, but I never got around to reading her books.  Love Me To Death went straight into my virtual basket. I'm a sucker for romantic suspense and it's been a while since I read a really good.

I was hooked instantly!  I did not want to put this book down,  which I had to, it's been a very busy few days, but whenever I could out came my ipad and I went back to reading it.  The suspense/mystery had me second guessing almost all the characters, which was a bit hard to do because of a lot of them were very likable and I didn't want to be disappointed.  The main character, Lucy, is a survivor and she wants to help put away these dangerous individuals.  Soon she's the one who is being targeted and she doesn't know who to trust.  All the twists and turns are so well written that certain scenes left me feeling a tad dirty and icky.  But not all the book was dark, there were a few sweet moments which were needed and the author provided them well.  The developing relationship between Lucy and Sean was the icing on the cake.

I truly enjoyed this book and I'm looking forward to reading more books written by Allison Brennan. I can't wait to get my hands on the second book of this series, Kiss Me, Kill Me, I've already placed a hold on it.
