I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Maria De La Torre is a survivor. Her life has not been paved with streets of gold...but with blood and sacrifice. She may have been there for her soul sister in the Trinity Trilogy but this story is about her life. The life she chooses. The same life someone from her past is trying to take away.
Elijah is the last man in the entire world Maria should be with. He's a dark, gritty, lawless bounty hunter--the exact opposite of the man she loved and lost, the man who gave up everything for her. Only Elijah is not the type of guy to back down. He's used to getting what he wants and he's set his sights on the raven-haired seductress.
Time is not on Maria and Elijah's side. There's a new threat to the soul sister, one Maria never thought she'd have to face again. And this time, of the stakes are life and death.
Maria quickly learns that the things she wants most in this lifetime may just be the things that have the power to destroy her.
Muy Caliente!! Life, the fourth book in Audrey Carlan’s Trinity series is perhaps her most erotically charged and suspenseful book to date. That says a lot as everything by Audrey is highly erotic. All her works are also thought provoking and Life is no different. In Life we get to know a bit more about Maria, one of Gigi’s crew (BESOS). She’s survivor and with that comes a bit of guilt and self-doubt, something that is hitting her particularly, and rightly so, hard.
You will need to read the first 3 books in the Trinity series to understand Maria and where she’s at in her life. ┬áThis is one fast read, and when I say fast I really mean the the connection with Elijah Redding is accelerated. Eli or “Red” is a bad a$$ mystery, a complete surprise to Maria, and one that throws this already off balance spitfire into a complete tizzy. The dictionary should have her picture next to the word firecracker. She kicks booty and takes names. But her past isn’t ready to let go of her.
The overall story line is well paced, the introduction, a threat that pushes these two together, and how that all plays out is very well done. Carlan always handles sensitive subjects (domestic abuse) with great consideration. Maria’s had a rough go of it, but again she’s a survivor. It’s a sexy, um, really, really, really sexy story and at times incredibly fun. The banter between Eli and Maria is fabulous and it’s always great to see more of the Hudson’s. And bonus, I learned a little Spanish too (although I’m pretty sure most of it won’t transfer to the business need for Spanish that I have). 😉 4.5 Stars and recommendation!
