The Intended Victim by Alexandra Ivy


The body lying on a cold steel slab bears all the hallmarks of the Chicago Butcher. There’s a cruel slash across her throat, deep enough to sever the carotid artery, and a small crescent carved into her right breast. Her delicate features are painfully familiar to Ash Marcel, once a rising star in the Chicago PD. But though the victim resembles his former fiancée, Remi Walsh, he knows it’s not her.


Though Remi escaped a serial killer five years ago, her father died trying to save her. Grief and guilt caused her to pull away from the man she loved. Now Ash is back in her life, insisting that Remi is still in danger.


Someone is targeting women who look just like Remi. With or without a badge, Ash intends to unmask the Butcher. But the killer isn’t playing games any longer. He’s moving in, ready to finish what he started, and prove there’s nothing more terrifying than a killer’s obsession...

This is the fourth book in the series, but I have not read the previous books. I never felt that I was missing anything in the story.

Remi survived the Chicago Butcher. But what she lost in the process was her lover, her father, and her sense of security. Now that she is doing something she loves, seeing Ash back, Remi knows that it can't be good news.

Ash removed himself from Remi's life after she was almost the victim and he lost his partner. He also left the police force. But when an eerily similar crime to the Chicago Butcher shows up at his brother Jax's desk, Ash comes back to protect Remi and finally figure out who is killing these women.

With a rush on time and people not telling the truth, Remi's dad's clues from the grave just leave more of a puzzle to solve. Jax, Ash's brother, Ash, and Remi have their work cut out. Can they figure out who has been killing women like Remi before she becomes a target again? Ash will stop at nothing to protect her and figure it out.

This book is full of secrets and twists and turns. It's haunting and thrilling all in one. The romance was very much a secondary part of the story for me and I'm glad that it was. I think had it been a more prominent part of the book, I wouldn't have liked it as much. The only minor issue I had with the writing style was that when the killer was talking, it was sometimes hard to figure out that someone new was thinking and talking because it all blended together. There wasn't any delineation when it changed.
