Headhunter (With Me in Seattle Mafia #2) by Kristen Proby

A Review by Wendy

3.5 Multiple Secrets Kept Stars
* * * 1/2

 Spoiler Free

When two people have so many secrets, is it possible to have a real, trusting relationship. That is the main question posed and the main thrust of the relationship between Shane Martinelli and Ivie Jordan.

Headhunter (With Me In Seattle Mafia, #2) is the second entry to the new series by Kristen Proby. We met all of the players in the first book and this focuses on secrets, life-threatening secrets.

It starts with Shane and all of the family/friends realizing Ivie has been taken and is missing.
This is the woman Shane has been smitten with but has been fighting the feelings. Shane's double life of working covert for the government and also for the family has made him believe there is no opportunity for a "normal love or real life". No woman should ever have to deal with the type of life he lives.

But those thoughts go out the window when Ivie is taken. All of the power and resources come together to find her and protect her. Ivie's secrets are revealed and come into play, causing a real threat to all involved.

This has all the elements of hand-to-hand combat, the realization of life is too short, and love matters. It was action-packed but a little Mafia Underbelly lite to me. It works, though, and has us interested in the other characters and their upcoming books. 

 A gifted copy was given in exchange for an honest review.
