Found and Bought (Assassin's Revenge #1-2) by Tara Crescent #BookReview #EroticSuspense

Found and Bought
(Assassin's Revenge #1-2)

In the world of paid killers, vulnerability is dangerous and love will get you killed.

For many years, Ellie has trained to be an assassin in order to kill the men who kidnapped and raped her when she was eighteen. She has allowed nothing else to interfere with her mission.

But when she meets the sexy and mysterious Alexander Hamilton at a bar, her tough fa├žade crumbles, and she can’t help but be drawn to him.

Alexander Hamilton lives by his own rules and has his own hidden agenda. When he sees Ellie, he wants her, though he knows he can never allow himself to have her.

They can only have one night…

However, Ellie and Alexander are hiding secrets from each other. Their worlds are about to intersect and the secrets they keep might end up destroying both of them.

This extended introduction contains books 1 and 2 of the ASSASSIN’S REVENGE romantic erotic suspense series.

This box set includes the first and second books of the four book series Assassin's Revenge by Tara Crescent. I read each of these books when they first came out and decided to read them again for a book challenge on Goodreads. If you like a suspenseful erotic read then this series is the one for you. I would advise you to pay close attention to this story as it begins to unfold because the H and h go by different names and if you aren't paying enough attention you will think there are more players in the story then really are.

Found is the first book in this series and it's where we meet the key players Alexander and Ellie but at first they are introduced to us as Marc and Rachel. 
Alexander/Marc and Ellie/Rachel are both trained killers that meet in a bar in the seedy part of Saint Denis France. Ellie had been kidnapped and raped repeatedly over a two year span 6 years earlier, when she finally left her captivity she became a woman with a vengeance and started training as an assassin with the plans on taking out everyone that had raped her in the two years she was held. Alexander is also an assassin his story is a little different from Ellie's and I'm sure we don't know the full extent of his story. The chemistry is evident when they start talking to one another. 
This book leaves you with a cliffhanger so it's nice to have the second book Bought ready to go.

This book is picked up where Found left off. Alexander has bought Ellie/Jenny at the auction. They each pretend to not recognize the other, for Ellie this is crucial because she believes that if Alexander (AKA Marc) recognizes her he will kill her. Alexander has a motive to do what he has been doing but Ellie doesn't know that, and I can't wait until she finds out....I have a feeling this is going to be a doozy. This was a great read it has everything I have come to love with Tara's books, a good solid story line and some very hot sex scenes. This book was a bit longer then Tara Crescent's usual books and I loved every minute of it.
I am sure that once you finish this book you will want the next to books handy because this is a story that pulls you in and doesn't let go until the very last page.
