Twisted Threads

Akira Hamada, a beautiful Japanese geisha, failed at killing Kaito Mitsui two years ago—the same yakuza gang leader who destroyed her lover and forced her to become an assassin. Now, with his sister’s murderer traveling to the Caribbean on a cruise ship, Akira has ten days at sea to identify her target and complete her assignment as her penance, or face her own death.


My Review

I did not know this book was part of a series. Yet, I was able to read it as a stand alone novel. Instantly, I connected with Akira as a human being and not just an assassin. The conflict that Akira endured under her boss's rule is real; especially when she met Devon. I felt Akira growing weary of being an assassin and craving a "normal" life and companionship.

Part of the classification of this novel is erotic. When it came to this aspect, it was tasteful without being overly assertive. Devon and Akira were not just about the sex. They both had emotions thrown into the ring and thus making what they felt for each other real. Yet, my only slight complaint would be that it felt like the story moved a little slowly in revealing Akira's mission. The vibe of the story did not pick up under more then half way through the story. Overall, through I enjoyed this book a lot and want to go back and read the prior novels to see Akira's journey from the beginning.
