One day Kat is taking a walk in the snow outside her remote bunker when she sees a car that has crashed. She goes to help and finds a woman who has been badly injured. Kat has no choice but to pull the woman from the wreckage and get her back to the bunker.
But she knows that there has been a hit put out on her and three assassins have taken up the challenge. One of the assassins is a woman and when the car crash victim wakes up she seemingly has no memory.
What was the woman doing in the middle of nowhere? Why is there a hit on Kat? Will she be able to stop the three assassins and is one of them sleeping in her bunker?
This was predominantly an action story. I wasn’t expecting in-depth characters and I didn’t get it. Instead I wanted great action, some mystery and a load of intrigue. I am happy to say that Baldwin delivered exactly that.
The Writing Style
I love the way Baldwin writes action. Her concepts are fresh and exciting, her pacing is fantastic and I love the twisty turning path that Kat goes down as she tries to keep herself alive while falling for the mysterious woman she is caring for.
Lori Prince did a good job narrating this one. She kept me interested and I enjoyed the listen.
The biggest pro of this audiobook is the story. It’s a fun action with enough romance and heat to make it sizzle but a lot of fun action sequences and I just loved the touches in the fight scenes – I will never look at a pantry the same.
Also, I loved the way this one ended. It left me feeling whole satisfied.
I am not a fan of the cover, but it’s not awful.
If you want an action book that will keep you on your toes, some awesome bad guys and stakes that keep getting raised then this is the book for you. It’s a high entertainment listen and I recommend you get it on audio because there is something epic about having a story told to you when it’s so full of action.
Excerpt from Hunter’s Pursuit by Kim Baldwin
Her caretaker reached the door and pulled it open, pausing to turn back for another look. For an instant she was silhouetted in the doorway.
She had long legs, a lean, athletic build, and she was tall. Broad shoulders tapered to a thin waist and trim but shapely hips. She was somehow bigger than life. A presence. The woman in the bed involuntarily sucked in a deep breath at the sight. She ignored the pain the movement cause in her side. The door closed, plunging the room into darkness again.
Nice. Very nice, she thought. Great voice and incredible body.
The next thing she knew she felt that hand under her head again. A strong enfolding arm followed the hand; this time she was brought slowly up to a half-seated position. Pillows were jammed behind her back, but the arm remained around her shoulders, supporting her weight. She could feel the presence of her rescuer beside and slightly behind her, but she was unable to turn to look her in the face. She wanted to very much.
The room was still darkened, but enough light came in through the open doorway to allow her to see that a small rectangular tray had been placed over he lap. It held a bowl of soup, spoon, and napkin, and a mug of weak tea. As she sat up, the blanket slipped down a bit, exposing her upper chest to cool air. She shivered. She realized for the first times she was naked, and the knowledge sent a faint flash to her cheeks.
How long have I been out? she wondered. And how long has she been taking care of me?
