Review :

The Asset (Wounded Warrior #1) by Anna del Mar was a surprising book at almost every chapter turn.

What started out as a (what I thought) predictable love story – turned fast into an rollercoaster of all sorts. The emotions were running high between the two leads and I really liked that both of them were strong and soft at the same time.
Where I expected the typical lover dialogues that try to hide secrets just to reveal them in one big bang. – I got “Ash” instead who knew from the first page on that “Lia” was hiding something.
Also there was far more action and suspense than I would have expected. In total this was a well written and fully developed novel, with deep characters that were bend but not yet to be broken.
“I didn’t say – “
“But you thought it,” he said. “And after you decided I was going to kill you, you mad another bad decision.”
I shook my head, afraid to hear him say it “You were ready to die”
Recommendable read …
