Review: The Vigilante's Lover by Annie Winters & Tony West

The Vigilante's Lover 
(The Vigilantes #1)
by Annie Winters & Tony West
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Publication Date: 13 January 2015

Spies, vengeance, and one seriously well-dressed man

"If Bourne dressed like Bond and acted like Grey, you'd have Jax De Luca." 
An addictive new romantic suspense series from the desk of USA Today bestselling author Deanna Roy/JJ Knight 

Mia trembles as she reads the letter that arrives from Ridley Prison.

Seduction. Bondage ropes. Descriptions of things Mia has never experienced or known.

The man’s words are desperately passionate. He longs for a woman who must have given him a fake address. Mia’s address.

She plans to send the letter back. He’s a convicted felon.

But his words gnaw at her. She’s never done anything dangerous. And no man has ever talked to her like this.

So Mia writes him, pretending to be the woman he desires.

It's her one dark thrill in her dull, solitary small-town life.

The man is in prison for another fifteen years.

It's harmless. She is safe enough.

Until he escapes.

( 4 stars )

What a thrilling start and I can some great potential for this series.

Jax De Luca is the Vigilante's East Coast Director until he got deluded by a woman that landed him in prison. The Vigilante is some sort of government secret assassin/spy thingy. The technology that was described here are way more advanced than what I seen in James Bond and MI6. 

Mia Marrow is just a civilian who happened to be at the wrong place and replying to a coded letter that doesn't address to her. She ended up being kidnapped by Jax and brought into his world of danger and suspense.

I love the humor and action in this book. After his prior bad experience with a cunning woman, Jax is adamant that Mia is a highly skilled operative sent to bring him down. And God forbid he is gonna fall for the same trap again. This bring forth a lot of craziness and funny moment between Jax and Mia. Poor girl never catch a break.

I believe this series will emphasize on Jax's journey to clear his name and I can't wait to get more of the action.
