Enemy Lover 
Publisher: Pocket Star
Publish Date: 25 May 2010
Origins: Publisher for Review
Format: Paperback
Blurb: When you have no alternative, then you call in L.O.S.T. Because with the Last Option Special Team, it’s do or die. . . .

It’s Jax Cassidy’s first mission for L.O.S.T.—one that will give the former cop who went rogue a chance to prove herself. Her assignment: gain the trust of assassin Marcus Cross . . . eliminate him . . . then take down Marcus’s mentor, Joseph Lazarus, a man with a bold eye on the White House. But the woman who’s known by her team for being a femme fatale succumbs to passion, only to discover Cross’s deadly secret. He’s a vampire, and Joseph Lazarus is his creator.

Left for dead by his platoon in the violent hills of Afghanistan, Special Ops sniper Marcus Cross was given a second chance at life. His newly heightened skills make him the perfect killing machine, and as Lazarus’s right-hand man, he’s quickly rising to the top of his dark empire, purging enemies with speed and precision. Only when dangerous beauty Jax Cassidy is sent to bring him in does he begin to question Lazarus’s motives and his own actions. But when Jax’s life is threatened by the one thing that can destroy them both, Marcus must make a bitter choice—her death or his. 

Review in 5: Amazing, Sexy, Amazing, Amazing, and Amazing.
Review: This is one of the best adult paranormal books I have read in a LONG time. OMG! I am sorry but when I am excited about something I don't articulate myself very well and boy am I excited! Let's hope I can explain my new found love for Karin Harlow!

So...lets start with a strong spitfire of a heroine, one who faces the worst life has to offer and comes out on the better side. Then...add a dangerously sexy vampire who is looking for his mortal side. Slap them together add political intrigue and secret government agencies and you have this book in a nut shell.

The heroine is strong, one of the strongest ones I have read about and wasn't turned off by her over exaggerated strength. The author has no problem torturing her characters and she certainly shoves everything bad in life at Jax and then rewards her with everything that can be good. The hero is also equally strong and as unmoving as Jax but he has a soft side as well and he has his own code, I can respect that in a man. It also doesn't hurt that their bedroom activities ignite to crazy heights, oh yes, you know what I mean.

The plot. OMG, the plot. *deep breathe* The plot is perfect, I was hooked from page one that I started at about one in the morning all the way to the last page at about six in the morning. I can't even explain the book well right now with all the sleep deprivation, it's like a female Jason Bourne crossed with a white Blade and then shoved into a freaking Mission Impossible movie. Gah, anyway the entire book is hot, exciting, and amazing.

If you were ever only going to be able to read one book that I recommend it would be this one! You HAVE TO GET IT NOW! I can't wait until everyone in the world reads this book and then understand the awesomeness and then can gush about it with me! *deep breathe* *sigh*
