OK WHAT? Ocean sure does kill, without flinching.
This was brilliant. It's such a unique story and I was on the edge of my seat the whole time wanting to know what happens next. Ocean and Callan have so much chemistry it's ridiculous. And they make such a great team, despite not really seeing them in action, you just know they'd be so good together.

I love Ocean, she is such a great character. My heart broke for her after I found out what she went through. No w

I'm partial to this one! Love it! ;-)

Ocean Breeze is unprepared for the turn her life is about to take when she gets arrested. She has only ever let one person into her heart and she is not interested in allowing anyone else access. But when she stumbles onto a sex ring and knows she is the only hope the victims have she could be forced to open her heart.

Ocean is a unique character. She has endured the unthinkable and survived. Not only did she survive, but she developed a unique power that ha

Ocean Kills pulled me in right away with relentless action and compelling main characters.

The vigilante Ocean Breeze is much more deadly than her tongue-in-cheek, air freshener name suggests. She is complex, strong character who is easy to root for despite the fact that she kills men as easily as I kill spiders (maybe more easily). The romance between her and Callan - a sexy, smart, likable, tanned Aussie hero - is delectable. Callan is a good man through and through, and a perfect match for Oc

Ocean Kills is sexy - smexy, funny and incredible thrilling book debiut by Jade Hart

Ocean Kills is the first book in the Ocean Breeze series by Jade Hart and an amazing new adult novel. I had the opportunity to read the ARC of "Ocean Kills" which made my day a lot of more enjoyable than I thought it could turn out to be. Actually when I got an e-mail from the author with attached ebook I screamed in joy and started reading it immadiately. Who cared about history exam, which in fact I probably f

When Ocean Breeze (yes, that is her real name!) was eight years old she witnessed the extremely brutal murder of her family. Something about the torment and torture she endured altered something inside of her. The ability to teleport was unlocked in her. Since then she has worked to keep the type of people that killed her family off the streets. She stalks and kills the men that murder and rape and then teleports out

God, this book was...beyond awesome. The teleporting assassin concept was a new one and a very well done one as well. Even thought it's the first book and it's not really explained in depth, there are hints as to it's origin and I can tell it's gonna get complicated.

I liked how the romance developed, even though Callan was a bit too overprotective it still worked somehow for this, probably cause Ocean doesn't take any of his crap xD

I would like to know more about those marks and how badly it af

I'm glad I picked this book up. At first I thought it was near 400 pages, but that was just other stuff towards the end. Still, the book had a good length to it to be able to develop a well written story. It wasn't rushed at all. I ended up loving it. Loved the characters.

Can't wait to get my hands on book 2 and 3! I hope she comes out with those quickly because really need more of Officer Bliss :0) I really liked the plot line of this story. It was very interesting & different. And I need more

Ocean Kills will take you to places you've heard of and have always wanted to go, for reasons you hope you never have to encounter. Ocean is a raw and believable character, conflicted over her past, present and future. With Jade Hart's well written words you will be witness to the most beautiful locations, the most horrendous people, and one of the sexiest male leads. Callan's stubbornness is perfect for Ocean's conflict and makes you root for them that much more.

You must read this book. But I w

I just wasn't sure this book was for me. I like paranormal books, but they are hit or miss to me. This one started off a bit confusing to me as it flipped between characters every chapter, not giving me enough time to really connect with them at first. But then, it hit it's stride, and BLEW ME OUT OF THE WATER. What a fantastic concept. I was so sucked in that I could think of nothing else. Now, I have read three books since finishing this one and still can't stop thinking about Ocean and Callan ...more

This book was so intense! I'd seriously be up all night reading, then dreaming about it. Jade Hart has a wonderful way with words. With her visuals, she pulls you right in the story with the characters, making you gasp, cringe, and even blush ;)

A beautiful, fast-paced journey between a woman who wants to save the world and a guy who wants to save her. Steamy, adrenaline-pumping, emotional--so good! A MUST READ!

First, I'm going to give you a little warning, this is not going to be a "normal" review from me, and I maybe should give you a heads up about mature content... This book has had a deeply personal connection. This is a very not so happily ever after story for a good part. It's a very real, very hard, but very much needed story about sexual abuse and how downright terrible the human race can be, but I'm so glad it's being shared! I've decided that this story, although hard to think about, is deva ...more

Ocean Breeze witnessed her family's demise at the early age of eight-years-old. The experience has left her traumatized in more ways than one. So much so, that it's changed her entire existence, as well as her genetic code. You see, she can teleport from place to place, an ability she makes the most of.

Vowing to make the men who stole her family and her innocence away from her pay, Ocean has spent her entire life hunting cutthroats and those who seek to do others harm. The knowledge that she's b

I am seriously excited about this new urban fantasy series! What’s not to like about a teleporting killer who travels to exotic locations to inflict her strong sense of justice on the bad guys? This is Ocean Breeze. An unbelievably gorgeous woman with a kick ass attitude and the will to take evil out of the world even at the expense of her own soul.

Throw in the hot cop, Callan Bliss, and it’s a super explosion of chemistry that leaves you on the edge of your seat hoping and wanting for more. Jad

Wow. Ocean Kills took me on an adventure I wasn't expecting. There was drama, excitement, sadness, fear, and enough hot scenes to melt even the coldest person!

I've read books in the past with very unusual plotlines, that have ultimately come off sounding completely unrealistic. Well, strange as Ocean Kills was, I believed every single word Jade Hart told me. The story stayed in my head all day, until I got back to it again, and then I dreamt about it!

Well, aside from the freaking ending - dammit, Jade! - I LOVED this book! I was so instantly in love with Callan, and so attached to Ocean, that it was impossible not to think of them when I wasn't reading.

Callan Bliss is a sexy, strong male lead, whose determination and drive when it comes to pursuing Ocean is nothing short of swoon-worthy. Even bordering on stalker-status, I still adored him. He was right to never give up on her, and I cheered him along the entire way!

I loved the characters in Ocean Kills -- the damaged, teleporting Ocean Breeze, who is gradually sacrificing herself for her mission; Callan Bliss, the determined, insouciant cop from Sydney; and Maurice, Ocean's mysterious benefactor. The characters are complicated and wonderful. The romance is unusual and fresh and skillful -- and the chemistry sizzles. Callan makes it clear that he understands Ocean, really sees her, and though she drives him half-mad, he's very much there for her. Ocean Kill ...more

This is one of the best books I've read in a long time! The characters are wonderfully flawed and amazingly lovable. The story line is unique and kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. I literally could not put it down. Ocean's character is multifaceted. She is a character that you grieve, cheer, and weep for; even though essentially what she does is wrong, you can't help but love her for what she does and understand it. Callan's character is completely crush worthy. He knows not everyth ...more

Great premise for a story - truly original. I thoroughly enjoyed the slightly futuristic, teleportation world. Not quite dystopia but not quite the world we know.
Ocean is a likeable heroine - tough as nails, although this self-isolation she inflicts is a little waring at times.
Callan Bliss - well, what can I say. A hot, surfing cop with sunkissed complexion. What's not to like?

The back and forth between the pair was stimulating, then became a little annoying - I wanted to shake Ocean and make he

Where to start with this one? It was a hard hitting, fast paced ride with lots of mystery and heartache. I loved that Ocean was such a kick butt kind of woman, but every once in a while that scared little girl showed through. It made her real and believable.

The paranormal element to the story is fascinating and I can't wait to see where it goes and how it even happened in the first place. Guess I'll have to read the rest of the series.

The romance side is steamy.
What a beautiful, amazing and wonderful story!!! Absolutely loved Callan, he's such a great guy, I adored how he handled girl like Ocean: hotheaded, full of pain and with fragile, beautiful soul. However I was often irritaded with Ocean's all drama regarding relationship with Callan. Tension between this two was deliciously erotic, I was shamefully salivating every time Callan and Ocean get together:D ...more

I am so glad I decided to give this book a try. From the first page, I knew I was hooked. The plot was fast-paced and action-packed, and the romance was hot and had me swooning every five seconds at the intense chemistry between Callan and Ocean. The cliffhanger has me eagerly anticipating Ocean Slays in May 2013. Ugh I'm so excited! What a refreshingly unique, interesting, hot read!
