Book Review Kill Without Shame
Title: Kill Without Shame
Author: Alexandra Ivy
Stars: 3 stars
This is the second book I have read by Alexandra Ivy. I gave her a second shot and I am done. Her characters are flat who were looking at a second chance. The book fell on the sword of romantic suspense textbook style. Lots of different points of viewing that were not always clear who was communicating creating confusion. This second chance bother me because if she was the one that got away than why did it take someone trying to kill her for him to come back. The wooing just drag along without any thing that made it special or stand out from other authors in the same genre.
I dislike that these mean of ARES are suppose to be the best and yet they couldn't seem to figure some of the easiest details.
My observation I find with all R.S is that the woman and man are so hot they could be on the cover of GQ or Comso. Are their that many beautiful people in the world? I get the HEA couple being that hot for each other but the rest of the world finds them hot too? One of many observation I have found in this textbook style R.S. novels.
If you enjoyed the first book in this series I am sure you will enjoy this one too. I didn't enjoy the first one but this second book in the series was better.
I needed more meat to the story and less I want to get into each other pants.

Lucas St. Clair’s prestigious family had a political future neatly planned out for him—one that didn’t include his high school sweetheart, Mia Ramon. Under their pressure, Lucas gave her up. But since surviving captivity, he’s a changed man—and a crucial member of ARES Security. When he discovers a dead man clutching a picture of Mia that bears a threatening message, his fiercest protective instincts kick in, and he knows he must go to her.
Mia has never forgiven Lucas for breaking her heart, and she’s convinced her feelings for him are in the past. But it’s soon clear that isn’t true for either of them. Now, determined to solve the crime and keep Mia safe, with his ARES buddies backing him up, Lucas will have to reconstruct the murder victim’s last days—and follow a lethal trail that leads right back to the fate of the woman he still loves…
Years later (no, I'm not admitting how many) I'm still an avid reader, and my tastes are still as varied as they were in my youth, which I suppose helps to explain why I enjoy writing regency historicals under the name of Deborah Raleigh, as well as my contemporary paranormals as Alexandra Ivy. For now that is enough to keep me busy, but who knows what the future might hold!
I do have a few other loves in my life besides reading and writing, the most important being my unbelievably patient husband, David, and my two sons, Chance and Alexander. Without their constant support and belief in me, I never could have been able to follow my dreams. They are truly my heroes.
About The Author:
I'm not exactly sure when I fell in love with books. Probably on my mother's knee listening to her read Dr. Seuss to me. I do remember that I was barely old enough to cross the street by myself when I discovered the delights of the local library. Could anything be more wonderful than spending summer days surrounded by stacks of Nancy Drew mysteries? Over the years I fell in love with Victoria Holt, Jane Austen, Agatha Christie, and J.R.R. Tolkien just to name a few. I read poetry, essays, biographies, and plays. In fact, I read anything I could get my hands on.
