Brilliant read! What a rush! Getting to know Snow (Sofia) and her life was as thrilling and exciting as I hoped. As expected, Elise Noble spins a tale full of intrigue, passion and vengeance. Beautifully descriptive writing leads you to care for Sofia, sitting on the edge of your seat, waiting for the outcome of her adventures. Even though the book can be read as a stand alone novel, reading the Blackwood series in order would make it even better. The book is definitely for a mature audience, due to explicit scenes and language.
Wow! Just Wow!!! A fantastic, can’t-put-it-down book where you love the main character (an assassin), hate her ex (a ruthless killer) and his henchman, adore her accomplice (a grief stricken brother), and crave ice cream! It was captivating to be along for the ride while Sophia tracks down "Vanilla" and plots how to kill him, especially when Leo enters the picture and throws a monkey wrench into her planning. Most of this book takes place on Grand Cayman Island, which provides great visualizations for us (the readers), but a huge obstacle for Sophia because her ex is on a yacht and she is deathly afraid of water! Luckily, she meets Leo, who is able help her work through her panic-attack causing fear of the water so she can continue to plan the assassination she was hired to carry out and get the revenge she is due. There are awesome sex scenes, appropriately placed cussing, a hint to a history of incest, and the planning of a contract kill. This book is intense and it does not disappoint. This is not a "sweet" romantic story, but if you enjoy strong yet vulnerable characters, an even stronger plot (including a romance), with great settings and fantastic action, this romantic thriller is for you! I LOVED IT!!! Lithium is a complete standalone novel with no cliffhanger, but I recommend reading the entire Blackwood Security series first for maximum reading enjoyment (or after if you can't wait to read Lithium). If you are familiar with the Blackwood Security series, Emmy, Mack, Black and Bradley all make an appearance in this book!!! Elise does a fantastic job writing a complete standalone novel with my favorite Blackwood Security series characters sprinkled in! I love how Elise's mind works and I love her characters even more! I voluntarily reviewed an advance copy of this book... lucky me!!! Now, it's time to get some ice cream! Mocha Chocolate Chip is my favorite!
