“Assassin Levi Agozi has lived a brutal life, but at his core is a man of strength and honor—my favorite kind of hero. I have added a new autobuy author to my list and her name is Ella Sheridan!” –Lara Adrian, NYT Best-selling Author

I killed my first man at the age of twelve. I've been killing ever since. I thought it was all I lived for…until Abby. Until the woman I'd kid

Loved it!

I couldn’t wait to dive back into Levi and Abby’s story! If you haven’t read this series before there is a prequel and a previous story to catch up on and you will want to do that because you don’t want to miss one minute of the tension-filled buildup….

Abby was gentle and soft, even though she had been through he**. And things weren’t even close to being over. Levi didn’t remember a time when his focus wasn’t his brothers and his quest for revenge. While that hadn’t changed, Abby brough

This is the third book in the series and I do recommend reading in them order. Abby and Levi’s story continues with loads of twists and turns. Can he keep Abby save and stop those who are a threat against him? Lots of drama, suspense and steamy chemistry. I loved it!

I was so glad to see this book on my kindle last night that after reading a few hours I was 75% into it and didn't want to stop reading because I needed to know what was going to happen next.
This is a continuation of Levi and Abby's story and it is filled with suspense and a love that may just end them both. We find that someone is after Abby or so they think but it could be they are after Levi and his brothers. But who could it be and why?
While Abby doesn't want to give up her life, she also d

Her safety was paramount!

"Assassin's Prey" was told from Levi's POV and I enjoyed that because you really got to see what made Levi tick. He was dark, growly and very dominant but with good reasons and if you messed with his brothers or Abby (the only person that kept him grounded )... well their days were numbered!


As book 2 started, its a fast-paced set-up again in the works and Levi was BOSS whether Abby liked it or not! I admired Abby's independence but still commanding Levi and his brothers

I absolutely loved this book and was honored to have been able to read and review. It was such a phenomenal read and had amazing characters as well as an amazing story line. I just could not get enough of it and once I started reading it I could not put it down. I recommend that you read it.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

The Second Book in the series is The Assassin Prey is the continuation of the Levi and Abby story where they try to mend their relationship. There are many problems in their relationship which they need to work but there is also the new threats and new people in their life which are after the lives of not only Abby and Levi but also Eli and Remi as well.

I started reading this book as soon as I had finished the first book! I liked the first book and was excited to see what was going to happen next for the characters! The synopsis of this book also sounded amazing and very intriguing! After reading this book, I can say that I enjoyed it more than the first book! I felt like the characters relationship was more developed and I enjoyed the plot more! There was also plenty of romance in this book, which allowed for quite a few seriously ho

This book is in a series and should be read in order to understand some of the characters and past events.

They do what they can to protect the lives of innocent people but they sometimes find themselves in trouble due to their occupation. Levi is in a “relationship” with Abby Roslyn after he saved her life yet Levi can only giver her so much as he doesn’t want Abby to be involved with his occupation.

4.5 stars Ella Sheridan is fast becoming a one-click author for me. I fell in love with both Levi and Abby in Assassin’s Mark and I am thrilled that their story continues in Assassin’s Prey. This romantic suspense is sure to keep you on your toes as it is full intrigue, action, and some scorching chemistry between our favorite assassin and the ever fiesty Abby.

Levi remains a strong alpha hero who is “the assassin, the lover, the brother” that I loved in the previous book.. He is possessive of

This is another exciting book in the series. It had action from start to finish and great twists and turns to make you wonder what was going to happen next!

I really liked Levi and how he struggled with his relationship with Abby. He cared so much about her and didn’t want to let her go yet at the same time he didn’t want her mixed up with his life and the dangers that came with it. As funny as it sounds he was an assassin for the right reasons and he didn’t have an easy go growing up and did wha

“Ella Sheridan is back with a marvelous continue of the Assassin’s Series.

Assassin’s Prey is book number two in the series, I recommend you to read the previous books (Assassin’s Mark book 1 and the 0.5 novella The Assassin) in order to experience the whole magnificence of this story.

We are back in this romantic, suspenseful and intrigue action packed story. Ella writing abilities amazed me. Once I start reading I couldn’t put it down until I reached the very last page. A story that will keep

I love the other books in the Assassin's series and was happy to get more from Levi and Abby especially with how unfinished the other book seemed. This almost seems more like the 2nd part of a Duet in which the books combined truly make up a single thought. This is definitely NOT a standalone, you NEED to read the other books to know what in the freaking world is going on right now and really know why the characters feel the way that they do.

I want to start out by saying that Assassin's Prey is the second book in Levi & Abby's story, so there's no way around it, YOU MUST READ Assassin's Mark (Book 1) & really should read the novella before both, The Assassin (Book 0.5). Levi can't stay away from his Abby after everything they already went through, even though she's put together a life again, but he's upsetting her with the way he comes & goes, without really committing to her. Levi looks at it like she's safer that way, so there's a ...more

Whoa! I was a bit up in the air with this series after reading the first book but Assassin's Prey was addictive. It was still dark and sexy and dangerous but there was more depth to it.

Yes, there was still the back and forth and lack of communication between Abby and Levi. But there was an understanding too. It was hard for Levi to let Abby in. Never before in his life had he let anyone in. It was him and his brothers against the world. But when his world puts Abby at risk, all bets are off.

Assassin's Prey is the second book in the Assassins series by Ella Sheridan. The story is not totally stand-alone since it features the couple from the first book. This time the story is told from Levi's point of view just as Assassin's Mark's was told only in Abby's point of view. I have to say, that I liked this book more than the previous and it almost made me wanna read the next book which will feature a different couple this time, one of Levi's brothers and Leah.

Something's gotta give...

My socks are officially knocked off. I have fallen even harder for Levi, if that's even possible. Levi, Abby and Levi's brothers are faced with their worst nightmare. Levi faces his worst adversary yet, but the kicker is he does not know who it is for sure. He is at his wits end. Always the protector Levi is having to face his fears of something happening to his Little Bird.

In this story Levi comes to terms with his true feelings for Abby. Abby herself is no shrinking v

Hauntingly beautiful romantic suspense!

Oh my word, I was happy with the HFN we had at the end of Assassin's Mark, but this book vaults the entire story to the next level! We pick up where we left off, with Levi unable to stay away from Abby so he gives everything he can to their relationship. Their peace is shattered when a new threat arises, and the shocking twist about where that threat originates was completely unexpected!

The action barely lets up enough for the characters to catch their coll

Our hero will do anything to protect her, even as she insists on being part of the plan.

This is book three in the series and I recommend that they be read in order so that you understand the background. It will still make sense if you start here, but you won't get the full experience.

I am a sucker for the spy and assassin genre, so this book intrigued me from the start and I am pleased to say that it did not disappoint. The story is very well written with an intense plot filled with intrigue, su

Book number two in the Assasins series is the continuation of Abby and Levi’s story. It is just as powerful if not more then the first of their stories. I found myself on the edge of my seat and in tears during a few parts. I love the imperfection of Levi and how Abby brings out a side he doesn’t want to accept he is deserving of. Abby too must have the patience to show him that they are better together than apart, no matter how that is to play out. That this is their relationship and it doesn’t ...more

There is a lot going on in this book and we learn more about the characters, Levi, Abby, Remi and Eli. I love the brotherhood in this Series. Levi and Abby share a strong and sizzling chemistry.

They made their living outside of traditional careers, with Levi being an assassin, Eli being a computer geek with mad hacker skills and Remi being the backup and a stealthy spy...After kidnapping Abby to save her from her unsavory father, a corrupt politician, he fell for her and she fell for him. ...more

Assassin's Prey by Ella Sheridan is book Two in the Assassins Series. This continues the story of Abigail 'Abby' Roslyn and Levi Agozi so you really should read the previous book 'Assassin's Mark'. There is also a prequel that you may want to read 'The Assassin' which is free on Amazon at this posting time.
As we learned in the previous book Levi focus was on protecting his brothers and everything connected to him...never a women. But then Abby happened and his focus is on her too. They are deal

Moving on but not so smoothly

Assassin's Prey is the story of Abby and Levi but told from his POV. As with the second book in this series, Assassin's Mark and as with the previous books it is fast paced, engaging, action packed and more than a little dark. But the one thing lacking in this book is more romance, or at least romance where you would expect it to be in the story-line. But I still really enjoyed reading this book in the series and look forward to reading the next, as the story of Abby

This is a great book about a young woman named Abby who is kidnapped by an assassin named Levi. He falls in love with her, of course, since this is a ROMANTIC suspense book. But the suspense parts immediately start to occur by attacks on them. At the beginning of the attacks, the readers is left to wonder who the attacker is, why they are attacking them, and if the target is Abby or Levi or both? The main question is if Levi can keep them safe so they can have an HEA? And, as in many romantic su ...more

I really enjoyed the first book in this series but this one just didn't hold my attention as well. I couldn't quite put my finger on why exactly. Maybe it was because I wasn't to fond of how their emotions were back and forth for a lot of the time. Wanting to commit and then not wanting to, or not facing things. I expected for more things to be resolved sooner with more communication but it seemed like mostly sex instead. I did enjoy the suspense of the story and loved the ending. Even though I ...more
