Peace of Mind

Refusing to live in the projects, like her entire family, Kat has acquired a real hustle that guarantees that she'll be paid, jet-setting and plenty satisfied. With everyone in the closet about how Kat gets hers, there's never any concern that her promiscuous ways will see the light of day. Besides, Kat enjoys what she does and can't imagine not having work to keep her content.

Kat gave up on happily ever after some time ago, but Grant steps in the picture and it seems that they cou

'Cause I'm THAT B*tch!

Katrina aka Kat took her first life as a teen. From that moment, her thoughts, actions and feelings would push her towards death. And now death is her life, her business, her profession...her pleasure. Kat is a paid killer. She lures men to THE KAT TRAP and then it's a wrap. She lays them and slays them.

The ruthless, insatiable assassin needs love too. When she meets a fine, sexy brother, is he enough to make her want to change her ways?

THE KAT TRAP was entertaining, rau

Honestly one of my favourite urban books. I couldn't put down the book. Such a page turner. I still think about it up to this day. I plan on reading it again before getting the second book! Love it!

Wow, this book was packed with action. Kat is the main character and she is an assassin for hire. This girl is straight up crazy! She will kill on command and has no problems with it. She grew up in the projects with a messed up mama who always chose men over her and hates her mama for that very reason. She has no issue telling anyone and everyone off that she doesn't agree with and does so with a vengeance.

This book basically about killing and sex, with a few other things thrown in. It is drama

This is my first book by Cairo , but it won’t be my last. Written with the gritty realism of street life, THE KAT TRAP is a page-turner. Kat’s character is strong-willed and focused which is good for her chosen profession. Yet, she is soft enough to still unwind with friends and desire the love she seeks from her mother. The only thing I felt the plot lacked is more interaction between her and a budding love interest. There was also quite a bit of gratuitous sex, which pushed the novel towards t ...more

Ladies and Gents be prepared to get in touch with your sexual side! From beginning to end this a eye opening, page turning, drama filled, sex you non stop, joy ride!!

And her marks think they've died and gone to heaven when they meet her....well I wouldn't say heaven but welcome to the Kat Trap!!! Can't wait to read the sequel Kitty Kitty Bang Bang!

This book throws you for a loop you are not expecting the book to end how it does

Definitely not my usual genre of reading, but had to see what Urban Fiction was all about. Filled with sex, drugs, and violence and more sex, whew, and more sex.
Hard for me to rate it. But the story line didn't drag and I could see where this author could, and maybe does, develope a fan base.

Kat is cold as hell, but I love her ! She don't take s**t from nobody and is a true boss! This book had me in from start to finish. Kat is independent, sexy, and a true killer! & her sex game on point!!! She didn't have to kill her boo at the end though... :/

Loved this character! We are first introduced to Kat in Cairo's book Daddy Long Stroke and I love that fact. Very well written, heated scenes and excellent story line. Love, love, love this book.

Kat is not to be messed with, she plays for keeps!

The Kat Trap and Kitty Kitty Bang Bang should be read one after the other, with The Kat Trap first. I love Cairos strong female characters and his unexpected plot twists. Read any and everything by the artist Cairo. He will not disappoint and you will sweat!

Exciting but very raw. I didn't know what to expect but as I read about Kat little did I know was as ruthless as she was. After getting through the street talk it was a decent read.
