When someone asks what I do for a living, I answer it plain and simple . . . I’m a hunter. I hunt the dregs of society and I’m very damn good at it.
Do I like to kill people? No, but it’s part of my job.
I’m Ian Chandler, FBI agent and a member of the Circle of Justice, an organization of justice seeking vigilantes. My mission is to solve a string of ‘accidental’ hiking deaths occurring around my Wyoming town. When Grace Myers –a woman who’s been missing for days –shows up on my land, it turns out she’s the key to it all. Someone is hunting her, and I make it my duty to keep her safe.
However, the deeper I get into the case, the more dangerous it becomes; especially, now that I’ve fallen for the woman I have to protect. If hunting is the game, I won’t fail. I always hit my mark.
REVIEW: AIM is the third installment in L.P.Dover’s contemporary, adult CIRCLE OF JUSTICE romantic, suspense series focusing on a secret, elite group of assassins known as the Circle of Justice. This is assassin/hunter and FBI operative Ian Chandler, and twenty eight year old hotel events and marketing manager Grace Myers’s story line. AIM can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story lines is revealed where necessary.
SOME BACKGROUND: The Circle of Justice is an elite group of assassins, started by the infamous Glenn Chandler, owner of the multi billion dollar Chandler Enterprises and former FBI agent, who target those who have escaped the system.
Told from dual first person points of view (Ian and Grace) AIM follows the search for a serial killer in and around the small town of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Eight people have gone missing in a case similar to a forty year old investigation but the most recent disappearance finds our heroine Grace Myers the victim of the latest abduction. Enter FBI agent and Circle of Justice Assassin and the man with whom Grace will fall in love. What ensues is the search and rescue of Grace Myers, and the hunt for the people responsible for the missing and dead in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
A copy cat killer is on the loose, and the suspect list continues to grow. While Ian goes undercover to ferret out the person responsible, Grace must remain secluded at Ian’s home, in the hopes of uncovering the who, what and why of latest crime spree and the increasing number of missing and dead.
The relationship between Grace and Ian is one of immediate attraction although they have ‘crushed’ on one another for years. For months Ian and Grace have been dancing around one another but Ian’s ‘job’ kept our hero on the road and Grace had a difficult time with the number of women flirting with the sexy, tattooed bad-boy that called to her heart. With Grace now living at the Chandler ranch, Ian wants a chance at a future with the woman he loves but his life as an assassin puts Grace in the direct line of conflict-secrets are kept close to the heart but Ian knows that to win Grace’s trust he is going to have to reveal the truth about the CoJ and his FBI assignments. The $ex scenes are intimate and seductive without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text.
There is a large ensemble cast of secondary and supporting characters including Ian’s brothers Bryce (Ian’s twin), Reed, and Wade, Grace’s father and police chief Colton Myers; Grace’s best friend Mya; hotel owner Charles Beckett, and his children Jared and Lauren Beckett, as well as an assortment of hotel employees and staff. The requisite evil has many faces.
The world building continues to focus on the members of the Circle of Justice, their assignments, and the necessity for such a group to exist. Some of the characters from the author’s ARMED AND DANGEROUS series cross over for cohesion and familiarity.
AIM is a story of suspense, mystery, family, romance and love. The premise is intriguing and entertaining; the characters are numerous, colorful and edgy; the romance is fated and provocative. AIM is a fast paced, story of romantic suspense where the promise of a future is threatened by jealousy and betrayal.
