This isn't your typical love story.
My life was great, I was happy until I heard something I shouldn't have.
Now I'm running and there's only one man that can save me.
He's also the one man I shouldn't trust.
Will the bounty be too high for him?

It was meant to be an easy job, Probably the easiest I've ever had.
But something about her threw me.

Lucy and Cash deserve way more than five stars. I absolutely can not wait for book 2.

It was intense and I seriously could not put it down.

I am hoping for more Argos!!! 🔥🔥🔥

This is my first read by these authors. I would say it will be my last as they broke me but the dark part of me needs more and can’t wait to read more of this series. When I’ve calmed down I’ll probably stalk both authors and see what else they’ve written.

Let me tell you the cover and blurb is deceiving. This book was so much more than I was expecting. I sat to read a chapter or two as my concentration isn’t too good this week. I ended up reading it all as this was unputdownable.

I soooo enjoyed this book! There was suspense, action, and romance with characters that I fell in love with! Lucy is a bit of a sheltered woman, having been under her stepfathers thumb for a while. When she finally starts to live on her own, she overhears some startling information and it changes her entire life! While trying to escape the people who are after her, she meets Hades, a hitman. I really liked seeing how she broke through his tough exterior. He had a soft spot for her right from the ...more

Bounty captured my attention and kept it from chapter one to the end. It offers a view of the dark underworld of pedophiles, kidnapping, drugs, sex-trafficking, and of course a bounty hit. The story may be a bit dark but oh so good. I can't wait for what is next for Hades, Argos and of course Lucy. Think there might need a new name for her after this book.

One of the authors I have read once before and the other is a new to me but this called to me. This is not even my average read for me so it will be different. I am most curious if the hitman can resist or will he pick the wrong path. Normally this is something I would skip but the romance screamed it would satisfy the need. The is centered around Lucy and Cash. Ah that Lucy drama like glue. Dark intense and dangerous will bring you to the edge. The combo intriguing too. Touchy things but oh so ...more

This is one of this stories that makes you feel bad for loving it so much. There is so much wrong with this story, but it's oh so good! Cash and Lucy are just fantastic together. Argos helps make the story too and I'm hoping to see more from him in a future book in the series. Very dark undertones and storyline may have some squirming or experiencing uneasy feelings, but man is it good. Trigger warnings galore for this book. But that ending was a killer and I'm not completely sure about it, but ...more

This book is so much more than intense... the subject matter is beyond dark. The topic of kidnapping/trafficking is done with a realistic element that is so past unsettling. Yes this is a love story with the right amount of naughty. We have a hitman and his tech support sidekick (mmm both are nummy wink wink) and the teacher who is in the wrong place at the wrong time and gets a hit put on her. Good thing we have a bounty hunter who investigates before he makes a hit and has a heart as well. I l ...more

Recommends it for: Readers who can handle dark stories involving children.
Bounty should have some specific trigger warnings attached as the blurb doesn't allude to them.

This book contains: (view spoiler)
Be warned. I know it's a hard limit for many readers.

I really enjoyed the suspense in Bounty. The character connection between Cash/Hades and Lucy was starting to cement quite nicely. The sex was smoking hot. 🔥 The banter between Hades and Argos brought much needed levity to the book.

Lucy is an innocent, happy go lucky kindergarten teacher until the day she hears something she shouldn’t have. Cash, “Hades” is the skilled hitman who accepts the job of killing Lucy.

BOUNTY is not the predictable tale of the captor and captive falling in love with one another – it’s much, much more!!! This book is action-packed, gripping, intense, dark and sexy as hell! BOUNTY would easily deserve 5 stars if it had better editing but unfortunately, way it is edited currently is awful!! Aside fr

This novel just didn't do it for me and I was left with a kind of horrible taste in my mouth when reading this book. This book centres on Lucy and Cash. Lucy is your typicla young, middle class woman working hard for a living. She lives with her mother and step-father who is a bit shady and is working within politics. One night, Lucy hears something that she shouldn't have coming from her step-fathers office and sets off a series of events with Cash trying to kill her! Yep, a bounty has put on h ...more

Well where do I start........ This book has it all I’ve literally felt every emotion possible with this book, Yes it’s dark and tbh probably one of the darkest I’ve read for a while it does have some serious moments where it was difficult to read with the human trafficking/paedophile ring however it was done in a way that you felt exactly what the characters were feeling and thinking which brought the whol

2.5 - 3 stars

I went into Bounty with high hopes, I had seen a lot of hype surrounding the release and it sounded exactly like the type of book I would normally enjoy.

While I enjoyed parts of the storyline, there were also some parts that were far too graphic and descriptive for my personal tastes.

I also struggled with the writing style throughout the majority of the book - at times it felt clunky, and then at others it skipped from one scene to another without any clear separation. Thankfully th

How to write this review and not give away how amazing this story truly is. I will say right from the start, there are some very disturbing scenes in this story that made me squeamish but done in a manner that only elevates the story and the severity of the situation Grace finds herself in. Hades sees himself as a bad guy, a hitman, but he only kills people that are doing harm to others so is her really bad? When his mission is Grace, he senses something different, this shouldn’t be his next vic ...more

I have previously read books by these authors and I as soon as I heard these two authors were teaming up to write a story together I knew it was something that I wanted to read. What an amazing writing duo these two authors make. The writing throughout the book flowed all the way through the book and was flawlessly done. This story brought out a lot of emotions throughout me and my heart broke so many times throughout the story.

Oh My God! I could not put this down. You guys did a fantastic job! There is graphic detail so this may not be suitable for some so beware.
I fell in love with Lucy and Cash.
The writing flows from character to character. You can feel what the characters were feeling and that makes for great writing.
The mystery y'all have throughout the entire story had me wondering but kept me reading. The love story you guys concocted came together fast but with caution and was beautiful in the process. There

This is my first book by Pavon and K.L. And I have to say, I have become a huge fan. The intensity that Bounty brings had me reading from beginning to end in one setting. The subject matter is so dark, human trafficking, and we get to see glimpses of what happens and it breaks your heart. We have the story of a Bounty Hunter and his high tech sidekick, both freaking delicious, who have no problems taking out marks. When paid to do a quick mark, they start questioning why. When they discover that ...more

Now this is where I start chanting........ Book 2, Book2! Hello page turner, oh how I love thee! Bounty had it all! Subject matter might not suit all, so if you are a little sensative, please don't read this book, but if you don't discriminate on subject matter, add this book to the top of your TBR list.

Cash and Lucy, yes it's a love story, but not your typical one. Would you think a Hit Man and a school teacher would ever work? And really that's all I want to give away about this book. It had m

I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book for an honest review. Wow! I loved this book, it’s intense, dark, these authors will take you on an emotional ride with their story of Cash and Lucy. I was hooked right from the start with these two and I couldn’t put it down. Opposite attract all the time and Cash and Lucy are definitely opposites. Lucy is in the wrong place and now her life is on the line and a bounty on her head and when Cash is brought in to take her out, he does hi ...more

I really enjoy a good dark romance and this one is definitely not for the faint of heart. I have never read anything by these two before and wasn't sure what to expect with a title like Bounty. This was most definitely not what I expected but I loved it. I was drawn in right away and held on for the ride. This story is chock full of the unexpected.

Lucy had a great life until she heard something she shouldn't - she now on the run and the one man who can save her is the one she really shouldn't trust. Cash went to do a quick job that should have been easy money - however the target threw him and although the money is tempting he finds her tempting too. Can she learn to trust him and can he save her?

Wow - this is a story full of drama, danger and twists/turns. If you can get your head around the format of this book which looks at the events

Cash and Lucy meet under very weird circumstances. Lucy is a plain, normal, happy woman who lives with her mum and stepfather. Her stepfather is a very important person and when she overhears a conversation she shouldn’t have; her life becomes very chaotic and she is in danger.

Bounty by Pavan Kaur and KL Humphreys is the first book in the Hitman series. It is the first book I’ve read of theirs. Bounty was packed with twists and turns and OMG moments that had me on the edge of my seat. It was twisted and dark but I could not put it down.

Even a month later I'm still reeling...hoping that it didn't end the way I read it. There has to be another answer... I can't have read that!

This book had me cringing in some moments, but with subject matter like that, how could I not? I loved the strength of Lucy and the amazing man Cash is...even though he's a bad guy, deep down he has a heart of gold and Lucy's extremely lucky to have him on her side!
