What happens when you fall in love with the sister of the serial killer you're hunting? Something perfectly tortured...

ATL agent Harrison Fairclough has one thing on his mind: stopping a serial killer. He knows who the man is, where he lives and who he's murdered. The problem? He can't prove Liam Forrester is a killer without exposing ATL--an agency that isn't supposed to exist. Needing to get close to Liam, and lead investigators to him before someone else dies, Harrison comes up with the perfect solution...he dates the serial killer's sister. Except his plan quickly derails once he meets the curvy physical therapist. He's drawn to her sensual smile, comes to crave her kisses and touch, until the body count rises.

Kiera Forrester's schizophrenic brother, Liam, has occupied the past ten years of her life. He still does, so much that she's moved to Florida to watch over him. When she meets her new neighbor, Harrison, she's instantly attracted to the sexy web designer. But as their relationship heats up and Kiera realizes she's falling in love with Harrison, she's afraid there's no future for them. The dark secrets of Liam's past can't be hidden away, especially when those secrets lead to murder...

To get the most from the C.O.R.E. Above the Law trilogy, it's recommended to read the books in order: Perfectly Twisted (Book 1), Perfectly Toxic (Book 2), Perfectly Tortured (Book 3).

Kristine Mason writes dark romantic suspense that leaves me with my jaw hanging open thinking, how does she come up with such amazing stories and characters. Kristine Mason’s characters are all hotties, male and female alike and I like that. If I’m going to fantasize, why not make the fantasy gorgeous? Perfectly Tortured is appropriately titled and I am so happy to be home with some familiar characters…but, knowing Kristine, I think Harrison Fairclough is in for the ride of his life. Working for Above The Law makes his life difficult. What happened to him in Georgia haunted him, made him dangerous. It was all he could do to hold back the demons in his mind wanting out, wanting to kill. Poor Harrison. He is such a good man, I can’t believe what Kristine has done to him. She has taken him to the depths of hell and I am loving it. I thought she would let him heal, but that is not to be. How will he exorcise the demons? Perfectly Tortured is a continuing story from the previous book, but enough information is shared for this book to stand alone. If you want to know more, you’ll need to read Perfectly Toxic. Harrison may be a hottie, naive about the ladies, but not about being in the law’s crosshairs. He is surely a flawed hero, but oh so lovable. He’s like the runt of the litter, I just want to take him in my arms and love him. I want to swoop him up and protect him. He’s quick with flirty dialogue. No one was looking for Liam, but Harrison would. He didn’t trust himself any more, but he would do this alone. I can even feel sorry for Liam. He struggles to control his anger, his impulse to kill….He’s a damaged guy through no fault of his own. Just the same, he needs to be locked up and the key thrown away, or put down like a rabid dog. Secrets…Liam and Harrison share so much, even their nightmares. How they handle it will determine their outcomes. Vlad his best fried is a former hitman and wanted by the Russia, the US, Interpol. He is such a unique and quirky character, one of the most loyal people ever. I love him and can’t wait til he gets a story of his own. Will he, Kristine? Inquiring minds want to know! Kristine Mason’s writing of human horror is sprinkled with humor. The peripheral characters all have their place and some will break your heart. Even the romance comes from a dark and twisted place. The tears came from an unexpected source, a twist I never saw coming. Kristine continually amazes me with her ability to take a simple story and twist and turn it, making me wonder how she can come up with so much darkness and suspense, developing it more, adding more, and I wonder how I will ever last long enough to reach the end. Every time I think the story is over…there’s more….and more….and more I am SOOOOO looking forward to reading more of her work and I am ecstatic to go wherever she wants to take me.
