Witty, clever and filled with some fascinating characters, SHARK'S INSTINCT is far from your typical mob style mystery! Bethany Maines has created a fun read with attitude and a collection of characters are sharp, a little daring and most likely more than they appear to be on first glance. -- Tome Tender Book Blog
Get the money and get out.
It ought to be simple. But Shark Santoyo's life has become a deadly maze of betrayal and double-crosses, and there is only one way out-trust no one. Particularly not the pretty girl with a plan.
Peregrine Hays knows that she's fighting above her weight class with the twenty-something Shark. He's the Organization's most ruthless enforcer, fresh out of prison, and dangerously attractive. Unfortunately, he's also the only person who can get Peri what she needs-the head of the neighborhood kingpin on a platter. But Peri's got more than a few tricks up her sleeve, a knife strapped to her thigh, and she's out to take down the king.
Shark knows he's playing with fire when he meets Peri, but she's more than jailbait: she's brilliant, deadly fast with a knife, and the key to Shark's survival. Shark needs Peri to find the Organization's missing money, but the suburbs hide secrets that can kill and with a brewing gang war and traitors on their heels, Shark and Peri will need to walk the knife's edge between instinct and attraction to make it out alive.
Shark's Instinct is the first book in the Shark Santoyo Crime Series. If you like fearless heroines, dangerous heroes and anything but typical mafia romances, then you'll love this high-octane series from award-winning author Bethany Maines.
