BOOK REVIEW- Soccer Mom (Killer Moms #1) by Eve Langlais *
A Bad Boy Inc. Spin-off series.
Can a woman with her past and secrets ever take a chance on love?
Being a single mom is tough, but Carla doesn’t mind the minivan and the PTA meetings. What does concern her are the random acts of violence striking too close to home.
Has someone discovered her secret alter ego? An assassin for hire, Carla’s done her best to cover her tracks.
Is it enough?
The coach who keeps flirting with her doesn’t appear to suspect that she’s more than she seems; however, when danger threatens, Carla won’t be able to hide the fact that she’s a killer mom.
And she’ll do anything to keep her son safe. AMAZON LINK
This was a good story idea with interesting main characters. Carla is one hair trigger momma when it comes to protecting her son Nico. You touch her son, you die, for real. And no one will find the body now or maybe ever.
Philip was a tough guy to figure out at first. I have to admit he kind of came off as kind of a buttoned up "suit". But keep digging there's more to him that just that image. Philip's boss was even harder to figure out at least at first. But it wasn't long before I suspected his real motives. Towards the end of the book, that suspicion was confirmed.
I really wanted to like this book more than I did. There is humor which did help. Maybe pulling back on all the sexual scenes that could have been a little less detailed. While it could be viewed as well written, I found myself skimming over them after awhile. Probably not everyone agrees with me on that though.
Looking for a H.E.A. ? They get one doing it their way!
