Story Overview:
It’s hard to be a badass assassin when a giant is beating the crap out of you. Luckily, I never let pride get in the way of my work. My current mission is personal: annihilate Mab Monroe, the Fire elemental who murdered my family. Which means protecting my identity, even if I have to conceal my powerful Stone and Ice magic when I need it most.

To the public, I’m Gin Blanco, owner of Ashland’s best barbecue joint. To my friends, I’m the Spider, retired assassin. I still do favors on the side. Like ridding a vampire friend of her oversized stalker—Mab’s right-hand goon who almost got me dead with his massive fists.

At least irresistible Owen Grayson is on my side. The man knows too much about me, but I’ll take my chances. Then there’s Detective Bria Coolidge, one of Ashland’s finest. Until recently, I thought my baby sister was dead. She probably thinks the same about me. Little does she know, I’m a cold-blooded killer . . . who is about to save her life.

My Review:
There are two things that I loved about this book...Owen and Finn. Finally, Gin doesn't seem quite so alone in the hard life that she's chosen for herself. I loved how Finn stepped up to help her in this book. Then there's Owen...OMG, I love him and how good he is for Gin. He sees and accepts her completely and how can you not love that about him? After Donovan, she needs that pure acceptance. I loved their backstory and how they originally met...seriously, it just melted my heart. I love Owen and NEED him to stick around forever. I will not be happy if he turns out to be a jerk later in the series. Gin deserves someone good for her.

So far, this was my favorite book in the series....and I don't think I'm going to say anything else because I don't want to post spoilers (anymore than I already have). Except, I really like where the story is going and I love the addition of Bria to the story arc.
