She’s wanted a big family ever since her distant father and cold stepfamily isolated her from affection. He’s an ex-SEAL sniper with PTSD.

Too bad she’s been told she can never have children, never have a family of her own.

Too bad he’s shut off his heart from love.

What do you do when one secret could bring you ultimate happiness…or destroy everything you hold close?

Beautiful Killer is an intense, ultra-sexy standalone novel set in the world of the Lawless Kings. Sherilee Gray’s raw, deeply-emotional voice will leave you breathless long after the last page.

I had high hopes for this book. I thought I would get the tortured Hero alas I got an ar$ehole. Throughout all of the book he was an idiot. Yeah he had PTSD yes he was suffering but throughout all of this he had a death wish. Until Sunshine walked into a bar. Even then he was a git.

The heroine has been alone all her life and OMG was she a broken record. The repetitiveness of her situation got to be too much. She was alright with the scraps she got from the Hero right to the very end. What shouldn’t have happened, oh colour me surprised when it did happen. NOT.

I really do not know how the heroine could fall in love with him. I just didn’t see it. On top of that he didn’t really talk so the only thing they had for me was sexual chemistry.

The book could have easily been 20-30 pages shorter. There was so much push/pull that I had to skim. They were at an impasse yet they still went at it like rabbits. Cue eye roll right here.

At 29% of the book he could have manned up. HE didn’t though. HE left her hanging. He didn’t man up until the very end and that for me was too little too late. The ending felt rushed. The Epilogue was really sweet so that helped.

They had no contact for two months and then suddenly she realises she loves him at 44% when they meet again. They’ve hardly spoken to one another when they were banging. Puh-lease utter bollocks. The plot was also somewhat predictable.

When the author got into the swing of them talking and emotions entering the picture it picked up and could have been 4 stars for me. I was really enjoying it but then it went back to the inner monologue of these two and my interest slumped.

All in all 2.5 Stars for when it picked up, the concept of the story was okay and that I liked Sunny. Plus there was no other woman drama so that also helped. But it is either o/w drama, manwhores (also not the case here) or utter bastards. I’ve so had enough of it all.

This is just not an author for me.

So note to self-DO DO NOT request any more books.
