Murder Girl by Lisa Renee Jones

New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones returns with the second book in her electrifying series featuring Lilah Love, an FBI profiler who doesn’t fight her dark side—she embraces it.

It’s Lilah Love’s job to inhabit a killer’s mind. The unapologetically tough FBI profiler is very comfortable there. But her latest case is making her head spin. It’s a string of brutal assassinations carried out across the country, each tied to a mysterious tattoo. Body by body, she’s followed the clues all the way back to her hometown. And every step of the way, the killer has been following her.

Here, beneath the glamour of the privileged Hamptons community, is a secret long buried but never forgotten. It’s bigger than Lilah. It’s powerful enough to escape the reach of the FBI. And it’s more personal than anyone can imagine. Because it’s hiding in Lilah’s own past. To fight it, she’s forced to turn to her lethally tempting ex, Kane Mendez. He’s an expert at bringing out Lilah’s darkest impulses. If she plans to survive, she’s going to need them.

Mary Jo☆☆☆☆
Just when I thought I had it all figured out, Ms. Jones pulls a fast one that I didn't see coming. With everything that's going on in Lilah's life, it’s hard for her to sort the good guys from the bad. What she's coming to realize is that there are no clear lines and the best she can hope for is to align herself with the one person she can trust: Kane.

He's her rock and salvation even if she doesn't want to admit it. Kane's seemingly endless understanding of Lilah is wonderful – it gives her stability and strength that's been missing in her life since her mother's accidental death.

The writing and edge of your seat moments kept me up all night just to see what truths came to light and what questions are still lingering. I can't wait until the next chapter in Lilah's life.

This book follows book one so I highly suggest that you read them in order. You need the back story in order for this one to make the most sense.

Lilah is still at it – she's trying to figure out what all of these murders have in common. So far, her only link is herself. There is truly nobody that she can trust and because of that, it makes her task of finding the killer that much more difficult.

Kane is Lilah's compass whether she wants it or not. They have been through a lot and despite their past, both are magnetic when it comes to each other. Kane has his work cut out for him and when the secrets start to reveal themselves, he will have to protect Lilah with even more resolve.

This is an edge of your seat thriller and I cannot wait for the third one. Jones keeps you on your toes and when you think you know what's going to happen, another curve is thrown in the story. Each character is well written and complex, their romance is part of the story but does not overpower it, and the mystery aspect is exactly what makes this book so successful, for me.

This is the second book in the series – and you absolutely HAVE to read Murder Notes first. I was so grateful that there was a wonderful primer at the beginning to remind those of us who have read a fair few books in between installments of all the twists and turns that made book one such a fabulous five-star read.

From page one we are catapulted right back into the crazy that is FBI Agent Lilah Love's life, and current case(s). She is such a fabulous character, and narrator of the story – I would love to be her... perhaps mostly because as well as kicking ass, she has one very hot Kane Mendez as a past (and present/future) love interest. Their interactions are fabulous, with the temperature set at maximum, and a wild mix of humour, passion, and ire. Sometimes the very description of what they are wearing is part of the seduction – even when it is black FBI garb, or a purple striped shirt.

The mystery continues to be intriguing too, and whilst some doors open, other twists come and turn your thoughts around again. I love the layers, the misdirections, and the fact that Love herself is so tied up in it all. Page turning reading at its best. Cannot wait to see where this goes next!
