One Wrong Move [Paperback]

I've finished reading "One Wrong Move" the book in her series by Shannon McKenna.

Product Description

Secrets Never Die

Alex Aaro has spent most of his life on the run from his Ukrainian mafia family. But when he learns that crazy Aunt Tonya, the only relative who ever gave a damn about him, is dying, he risks returning home to say goodbye. He’s prepared for anything except the call from his friend, Bruno Ranieri, that sends him on a wild and dangerous ride with a mysterious woman who holds a deadly secret and a white hot passion that binds them together.

Social worker Nina Christie has no idea how much trouble she’s in when her Aunt Helga shows up bleeding at her shelter, babbling in Ukrainian — and with one inexplicable act thrusts Nina into the heart of a nightmare. Now a ruthless crime syndicate will stop at nothing to make Nina disappear, and only Alex Aaro, that inscrutable six-foot-four rock hard slab of lean muscle, stands between her and certain death. Now Nina and Alex are in a race against time, death, and their desire for one another …

My Review:

Alex Aaro has been on the run from his dangerous Ukrainian mafia family.  He risks coming home when he learns his crazy Aunt Tonya is on the verge of dying.  What he didn't expect was a phone call from his friend Bruno Ranieri that sends him on a dangerous journey with a mysterious women with a secret and a hot passionate attraction that can prove deadly.

Nina Christie is social worker that never expected any trouble until her Aunt Helga arrives at her shelter bleeding and yakking in Ukrainian and creates a chaotic and dangerous journey.  A crime syndicate will do anything to make sure that Nina disappears forever and Alex Aaro is the only man who can save her.

The book has tons of thrilling high octave action right from the beginning of the book and never stops until the end.  The villains are very cruelly psychotic and will do anything I mean anything to make sure they gain the upper hand and to extract information from a victim (pretty brutal and deadly methods).

I really enjoyed the bantering between Nina and Aaro because to me it was foreplay between them until the real thing.  It was quite hilarious because they never seem to have a civil conversation but always seem to be arguing which was refreshing.
