Paths (The Killers #2) by Brynne Asher


Goodreads Review



Maya Augustine needed to disappear—her life depended on it.  When her path led her to the middle-of-nowhere Virginia, she found the perfect place to hide.  A woman on the run, Maya had no business befriending anyone, let alone allowing herself to become involved with a man … especially after her last experience.  Even so, she couldn’t help but become obsessed with the bruised, battered, and beautiful killer who walked into her life.

Grady Cain reached rock bottom.  His past finally caught up with him, causing him to lose his edge at work and in life. Spiraling down a desperate path of remorse and guilt, Grady wasn’t expecting his refuge to come in the form of a woman.  Day in—day out, she was the only thing he’d allowed himself to think about. To focus on. To consume him.

One was running. The other had nothing to run to.

Until these troubled souls crossed paths…

And two paths became one.



SPOILER FREE
„From this moment on, our paths that brought us here end-they’re done. We’re starting a new one-one we’ll navigate together.”
Ah, need I say more? Yes, you say. Well here goes…
Maya Augustine is on the run and she could have come across as the damsel in distress but she didn’t. She took the time to regroup when necessary. She knew when to stand her ground and when to take a step back and let Grady take over. As, a heroine she is strong, sassy and a perfect match for Grady.
Addy gave her a chance with an act of kindness with the bungalow and a job. Working two jobs, seven days a week. At Whitetail and at the Rolling Hills Ranch. Done everything she can to not leave a trail but Lady Luck is not on her side. Her past catches up.
All of them are getting under Maya’s skin. Especially the stoic, reserved Grady Cain.
All of this, his beauty mixed with his injuries, only fuels my fascination. There’s obviously something wrong with me. I as well am a Grady fan.
I got to say I never thought that Cam Montgomery from Athica Lane could be beat but move over Cam because Grady Cain is in the picture. Best book boyfriend 2017? Looks like that is gonna happen. Yeah, the year is still young but I have high hopes.
Grady Cain what a name right?
Grady Cain is the epitome of an alpha male. Broody, overprotective with slight stalker-ish tendencies. With an absolute soft, sweet and gooey side. He is carrot cake. And I personally love carrot cake.
I want a Grady Cain of my own. FACT!
I’m always extremely nervous when it comes to reading authors I really like and I feel a connection with and here it was no different. I loved everything from the plot to the characters to the smutty, filthy and sweet as well as adorable times. The twists and the turns have you on the edge your seat. Such a fab read and a reread as well as a recommend for sure.
