This book WOW! This freaking book is kickass, full of steamy sex, suspense, action and once you start you are in for an amazing adventure that you do not want to miss out. Best Laid Plans takes place in North Africa where “Marcelle De Sant aka Marc” a well known hit man has only one month left to finish his assignment and he is out.

Liliana Brewster aka Lily has been a transporter and for the past five years she has only one motivation and one goal “Revenge”. She only has one week left to smuggle the diamonds out of Liberia and into Russia. Lily had flirted with Marc while on her mission for few weeks; he was hot enough to have a one night stand she thought. So she followed him one night and they had a steamy night that was unforgettable. The next morning everything changed; Marc and Lily found themselves on a dangerous mission they both got caught into lies and were forced to fight for their lives away from Africa. Trust was a big issue for both of them; they were both on their own and desperately to do anything to get what they have to do to reach each of their goals.
“One of the worst cities in the world, and here was an auburn goddess with rosy skin and a lavender scent.” Marc
This book was packed with action full of suspense that had me biting my nails one minute and the other well it was hot. Marc and Lily ended up together trying to survived and developed feelings for each other. After fighting all the time of course she was stubborn and independent and he was well he was badass Marc Raw and strong and unpredictable. Their sexual chemistry was defiantly undeniable it was so HOT especially after a good fight they would go wild for each other. Marc and Lily had sex in the car, in the shower basically everywhere and it was amazingly HOT. They had to change strategies so both can get out of this mess alive.
“He grabbed her by the back of her head and pulled her in for a kiss.” Marc
“She grabbed the straps of his vest and yanked him even closer, sliding her tongue into his mouth before he could make that move first.” Lily
The events heading to the ending left me speechless, I was so angry at the choices Marc made and I am dying to get my hands on book two right away. Yes there is a cliffy ok a BIG cliffy whatever but best know you do not want to miss out on this fantastic adventure. I loved The author outdid herself with this one I absolutely loved every single minute of it and I just couldn’t get enough. Looking forward to more of Marc and Lily and more action on the next book.
