Title: Before the Dawn (Killer Instinct #2)
Author: Cynthia Eden
Stars: 5 out of 5
Before the Dawn is suspense driven story from first page to last. It pulls the truth out of each persons past bringing painful memories as well as why they chose their chosen paths.
The couple in this story has a gut wrenching past that has readers will want them to have their happiness.
The story is a more predictable than I had expected and that came from the back the serial killers seemed to change his MO never once having a direction which made it even easier to figure out the truth.
This book doesn't stand out as much as others in the series because it seem to follow a lot of her most recent books and lack the twist she is known for. The sex is hot like always, the characters are dark but lovable and this story can be read in a day leaving readers very satisfied.
Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for an advance copy of this book.
Ex-SEAL Tucker Frost knows that the world is full of evil. He saw it in the face of his own brother, Mason Frost, a cold, methodical, sadistic killer. A killer Tucker put down with his own hands in order to save Mason's final victim—Dawn Alexander, the only girl who got away from the infamous "Iceman."
It's Tucker's up close and personal experience with evil that's made him perfect for Samantha Dark's experimental profiling division in the FBI. Samantha wants agents who have personal ties with killers, who have unique insights into the minds of monsters. And when women start turning up murdered with the same MO used by the Iceman, Tucker is sent back to Louisiana to investigate.
The last person he expects to see is his ex-lover, Dawn. Ten full years have passed since the night that Tucker faced down his brother…and since he last saw Dawn. But the dark need still burns just as hot between Tucker and Dawn. As they grapple with a desire that never died, they must also face the shared shadow from their pasts. Both Tucker and Dawn have the same question—has Mason Frost come back from the dead to hunt again? And this time, will he succeed in killing the victim who got away?
