Killing Sarai (In the Company of Killers #1)by J.A. Redmerski

18 Jul


Sarai was only fourteen when her mother uprooted her to live in Mexico with a notorious drug lord. Over time she forgot what it was like to live a normal life, but she never let go of her hope to escape the compound where she has been held for the past nine years.,Victor is a cold-blooded assassin who, like Sarai, has known only death and violence since he was a young boy. When Victor arrives at the compound to collect details and payment for a hit, Sarai sees him as her only opportunity for escape. But things don’t go as planned and instead of finding transport back to Tucson, she finds herself free from one dangerous man and caught in the clutches of another. While on the run, Victor strays from his primal nature as he succumbs to his conscience and resolves to help Sarai. As they grow closer, he finds himself willing to risk everything to keep her alive; even his relationship with his devoted brother and liaison, Niklas, who now like everyone else wants Sarai dead. As Victor and Sarai slowly build a trust, the differences between them seem to lessen, and an unlikely attraction intensifies. But Victor’s brutal skills and experience may not be enough in the end to save her, as the power she unknowingly holds over him may ultimately be what gets her killed. This is their story…



“There is a stark difference between fear and uncertainty, Sarai. You fear nothing but are uncertain of everything.”
― J.A. Redmerski , Killing Sarai

“You made me feel real emotions. You unlocked me.”
― J.A. Redmerski , Killing Sarai

“She looks defeated. Beautiful and soft and damaged standing there before me partially clothed in the light of the moon beaming through the tall window. Beautiful, but defeated. That look in her eyes, it somehow latches onto my soul and all I want is for her to turn and walk away. Because I know that if she doesn’t, if she presses me further with those soft lips and sad, vulnerable eyes that I’ll succumb to the moment and either fuck her or kill her.”
― J.A. Redmerski , Killing Sarai





At the age of 14 Sarai was given away to a Mexican drug lord by her mother. Javier holds her captive for 9 years…until the
day an American man visits the compound where she’s been held. Victor is not just an ordinary visitor, he’s a killer, but despite this Sarai sees an opportunity to scape & she believes that he would help her… from that point on the story of Victor & Sarai begins.

This book reminded me of the dark duet series but in a much gentler way, this story is not the usual conventional romance & to me it was a breath of fresh air because of this. It was action packed & thrilling, also their relationship doesn’t happen straight away it sort of eases into it slowly & things happen between Victor & Sarai at nearly the end of the book but according to the author we can expect things to spice a lot more in the upcoming books & I’m looking forward to read about them being together in a more passionate way. For those that may think Sarai is just a damsel in distress, think again, she’s a surviver & when a situation demands it she can go from selfless & caring to been able of killing to safe herself.

For me this was an enjoyable read that even though it has a touchy story line & isn’t to everyones taste, is entertaining & it keeps you wanting more. I will be anxiously awaiting book 2 in the series 🙂

“Victor, you were wrong.”

He turns only his head to look back at me.

“You were wrong when you said I fear nothing. You were so wrong….”
