Review: Tangled Threads by Jennifer Estep
I’d rather face a dozen lethal assassins any night than deal with something as tricky, convoluted, and fragile as my feelings.
But here I am. Gin Blanco, the semi-retired assassin known as the Spider. Hovering outside sexy businessman Owen Grayson’s front door like a nervous teenage girl. One thing I like about Owen: he doesn’t shy away from my past—or my present. And right now I have a bull’s-eye on my forehead. Cold-blooded Fire elemental Mab Monroe has hired one of the smartest assassins in the business to trap me. Elektra LaFleur is skilled and efficient, with deadly electrical elemental magic as potent as my own Ice and Stone powers. Which means there’s a fifty-fifty chance one of us won’t survive this battle. I intend to kill LaFleur—or die trying—because Mab wants the assassin to take out my baby sister, Detective Bria Coolidge, too. The only problem is, Bria has no idea I’m her long-lost sibling . . . or that I’m the murderer she’s been chasing through Ashland for weeks. And what Bria doesn’t know just might get us both dead. . . .
I absolutely love this series. And in this book Jennifer pulls us further into Gin's world and we learn more Owen whom I am hoping is a good as he seems. Mab makes a bad mistake in this book by going after Bria and of course we all know how Gin handles threats to those she loves. This allows us to find more about Gin's powers and how she's just as powerful an Ice Elemental as she is a Stone. I'm hoping Gin takes Mab out cause we find out that she'll use anyone to get information that she needs. I am so looking forward to the next book this to see her get her just deserts lol. I am going to give this one a 4 1/2 stars. I purchased this book for my own personal use.
