Former CIA agent Bailey Jones has spent months trying to forget her night of passion with mercenary Sean Reilly. An elite and methodical assassin, she has no room in her life for a reckless, rule-breaking Irishman, and she’s vowed to steer clear of the tempting bad boy who lured her into his bed under false pretenses.

When Sean is implicated in the robbery of a Dublin bank, Bailey knows something isn’t right. So what if she can’t trust him? There’s no way Sean would end up on the wrong side of the law. In fact, he’s stuck in the middle of a dark and dirty conspiracy that could put his twin brother’s life at risk with one wrong move. And Bailey’s life too when she agrees to help.

As the stakes are raised and Bailey finds herself torn between two brothers, the fine line between danger and desire is crossed…and it’ll take more than a killer instinct to survive.

Freaking Elle Kennedy. Seriously. No matter what genre she writes in, she knows how to turn up the heat and create some pretty intense chemistry. Throw in some crazy action, hot assassins, and Irish mobsters, and I sure am not complaining! 

Elite assassin Bailey Jones has done everything she can to forget her one hot night with Sean Reilly, especially after he tried to pretend to be his twin brother to get together with her. Try as she might, though, Bailey can't stop how hot and bothered she gets just thinking about Sean. So when Bailey figures out that Sean is part of a bank robbery in Ireland, Bailey knows something is up and drops everything to go help him. Sean doesn't want Bailey's help, though, especially if it means putting her in danger. Too bad Bailey isn't the kind of girl who needs protecting…

First off, I loved Bailey's character so much. As a female assassin, she's got to have some backbone, and Bailey was definitely not the damsel in distress kind of girl. Bailey can take care of herself and will do anything to protect those she cares about. I loved how useful she was to Sean and how much she actually helped to get him out of trouble. It was fun to see how impressed they were with each other's under cover skill and how they really started to like each other more and more for reasons that went beyond their undeniable chemistry. 

Of course, it wouldn't be interesting without some animosity between our two main characters. Bailey tried so hard to push Sean away, but how can anyone resist someone as tempting as Sean? It was so sad when Sean would push Bailey's buttons because she was hurting him on purpose, too. Ugh! Just be with each other! It's what you both want! So while they were frustrating, it just made you want them to get together that much more. 

If you can't tell, I loved Sean and Bailey's story not only for the passion but for the action as well. There were some heart pumping moments and I definitely didn't know how they were going to get out of each mess they got themselves into. Every romantic suspense fan has to check out Elle Kennedy's Killer Instincts series. With hot assassins and seriously sizzling chemistry, you definitely won't be able to put them down!
