Overview

Enemy Lover by Karin Harlow

When you have no alternative, then you call in L.O.S.T. Because with the Last Option Special Team, it’s do or die. . . .

It’s Jax Cassidy’s first mission for L.O.S.T.—one that will give the former cop who went rogue a chance to prove herself. Her assignment: gain the trust of assassin Marcus Cross . . . eliminate him . . . then take down Marcus’s mentor, Joseph Lazarus, a man with a bold eye on the White House. But the woman who’s known by her team for being a femme fatale succumbs to passion, only to discover Cross’s deadly secret. He’s a vampire, and Joseph Lazarus is his creator.

Left for dead by his platoon in the violent hills of Afghanistan, Special Ops sniper Marcus Cross was given a second chance at life. His newly heightened skills make him the perfect killing machine, and as Lazarus’s right-hand man, he’s quickly rising to the top of his dark empire, purging enemies with speed and precision. Only when dangerous beauty Jax Cassidy is sent to bring him in does he begin to question Lazarus’s motives and his own actions. But when Jax’s life is threatened by the one thing that can destroy them both, Marcus must make a bitter choice—her death or his.

Please see full review at: readersedyn(dot)blogspot(dot)com I just e-mailed an acquaintance that had asked me to let her know what I thought about Enemy Lover because it was my first Karin Harlow book. Ironically, the e-mail served well in helping me collect my thoughts about the book. *whispers* Acquaintance, you know who you are so if some of the comments in this review seem familiar, take care - you inadvertently aided me in creating this review. ? I really loved this book. I can honestly say that I looked forward to turning every single page, actually upset with myself at times for not reading faster. Once in a while my eyes would jump ahead a catch glimpses of what was coming up. Bad, I know, but I enjoyed it that much. There was something taking place on very nearly every page. Yes, yes, that is what generally happens in books. I am aware. But what I mean is that Harlow did not linger over any scene overmuch. She kept the story forward moving at all times with a fast-paced read that the reader has no choice but to jump into head first. What I really appreciated was the balance within the book. As much as I hate to admit this, sometimes reading a lot of erotica-type books kind of wears a person down. I do not always want to read about attraction, passion flared, and the inevitable sexual conquest wrapped up in a pretty little love story. *GASP* Did I just say that? Yes, the steamy sex is nice, but the story does not have to revolve around the sex to be good and suck the reader in. Trust me, I'm on the lookout for the lightning that is about to strike me down! Anyway, Harlow builds a world with various other worlds that is very easy to believe in. Government funded secret op forces that take out national threats. Yeah, I can get on board with that. There is the world as we know it and then there is Marcus's world and Jax's world. Each has its own rules and regulations and each perceives the other as a threat. Not to mention each is acting for the greater good. But which side is the good side is the question that has to be answered. And of course, through it all, the world as we know it hasn't the slightest inkling that any of these organizations exist. Also liked was the fact that I could identify with Jax. Not from the perspective of having ever suffered a crime so heinous, but understanding her reactions, motivations, and drive to continue on after the nightmare she experienced. When the heroine is tough and strong, she has to embrace characteristics much like Jax to be believable. I think that a lot of us in our daily lives operate similarly to Jax. Definitely not on her level, but in the following way: She may not have been perfect, but she did the best she could with what she had with the best intentions - a feat I think many of us try to emulate within various aspects of our lives. Bottom line, I thoroughly enjoyed Enemy Lover and my time spent with the L.O.S.T. I can't wait to continue the journey with Enemy Mine, Karin's latest L.O.S.T. installment. You can also find Karin writing as Karin Tabke. (paperback won in contest online courtesy Pocket After Dark)

When a cop does what is right in her heart and forsakes the vows she's sworn to, justice will be served and every action has it's consequences--even for those pure of heart. Jax Cassidy is reborn under the guidance of LOST a covert operation above the law and not always within it. Suits her just fine. Marcus Cross is a soldier turned vamp with not much left to his soul until the fiesty double agent renders him sprung. Destined to greatness by the power in his blood, she pushes him to be anything other than sheep and take back what's his. Family, power, and love. Quick Review: I've held off reading this because of the militant take on the book, but I was so pleasantly surprised. Ms. Harlow created a larger than life cast that made me grin with their determination and resilience. I hated to put the book down! Jax is a woman that rises above an assault in much the same way most women would--or at least I like to think we're all stronger than we think--and proves her nuts to the world by becoming a deadly special ops tactical machine. She's lethal and she knows it. By giving her some flaws and some kick ass vamp blood borrowed from Cross, she's a weapon of mass destruction. Cross is oh so yummy and a man we can all fall in love with. He's not arrogant--which I love--but he does know his limits and their aren't many. I love that he didn't fight his feelings for Jax, but harvested them into a love that knows no eternity. Very well written, smooth and fast. I loved every minute. Oh, and did I mention there is some gore? My absolute fave! 5 Stars and definitely ready for the next book! Need to download that puppy tonight. :)

Review by Jen: I loved this book. I devoured every word and my first thought when finishing was "when is the next book in this series coming out?" (I happened to look today, Enemy Mine will be released August 30!). From reading the back cover, I wasn't sure exactly what I was getting myself into. Is this a paranormal, or a romantic suspense? Well, it's definitely both, with more emphasis on the suspense... the paranormal part just seems secondary, although crucial. I found myself intrigued by the "mercenary" group Karin created with L.O.S.T. and those members who have found their way to working for them. The political undertones mixed with this highly secretive group for hire lends itself to so many stories. And when you add in a paranormal twist, your options are just limitless. I can't wait to see where Karin takes the staff of L.O.S.T in future books. But, back to Enemy Lover. Jax is a complex character and she is well developed over the course of the novel. You care about her and ache for her to achieve justice in the end. While I didn't find Marcus quite as interesting, I did want to see him receive peace (and a happy ending). And the chemistry between the two... well, I'm shocked that my book didn't burst into flames. After skimming the book to refresh my memory (other than remembering so clearly that I enjoyed it), I'm finding myself wanting to re-read... which is about the highest praise I can give a book as I rarely want to do it.
