Review: Bounty for Hunter by AJ Williams

Keylee isn’t your typical bounty hunter.  She’s young, petite, and has a Doberman Pinscher as her personal bodyguard.  Just as Keylee returns to town from a month long assignment, she’s asked to protect a man named Hunter, who has jumped bond and is on the run from other bounty hunters and the police.  The mere fact that she knows who Hunter is and why the police are after him, places her life at risk.  Now, Keylee has a limited time to save Hunter and herself.

This was a book I wanted to read when I saw it. Honesty, I actually entered a contest to win a copy. Shortly afterwards, the writer sent me a request to read the book and I was very excited.  This book is SO much more than I expected. I expected the book to be a suspense. It's actually a romantic suspense. SURPRISE!!

The first thing that drew me to the book was it's cover. A woman holding a gun, looking pretty kick a--, come on, talk about woman empowerment. Bounty for Hunter grabbed my attention from the very beginning and did not let it go.

Hunter is at the wrong place at the wrong time. He witnesses a couple of dirty cops kill a drug dealer. During the melee, one of the cops is killed. Believing Hunter knows too much, the remaining police officer accuses Hunter of being involved. Hunter is arrested and when someone tries to help him, they're killed. Fearing for his safety, Hunter skips town.

With cops and bounty hunters hunting him down, Hunter's sister, Tess, turns to a group of bounty hunters she's told will be able to help her. Enter Sloan’s Bonds and Bounty and Keylee Anders. Keylee is just about to turn down Tess' request to find and protect Hunter, when an attempt is made on both their lives. Knowing she can't leave Hunter alone to fend for himself against dirty cops and a dirty judge, Keylee takes the job.

Keylee inadvertently leads someone to Hunter's location and another attempt is made on their lives. Without a gun or any other weapon, Keylee manages to get both her and Hunter to safety.

Did I mention the surprise of this being a romantic suspense? Nowhere in the description of the book does it mention a romance or a possible romance. Hunter and Keylee are both attracted to each other immediately. Holy smokes.... This book is HOT.

Bounty for Hunter is a short novella that introduces you to characters in upcoming books. While you don’t get tons of background information on these characters, you do get a sense of the type of guys they are. I can't wait to read the other books in this series.
