Octavio," she whispers in her sleep, snuggling closer. I don't intend for it to happen, but in that moment, she steals a little piece of my heart.

I'm on a mission this year to read as many new-to-me authors as I can. The second I read the blurb to this book, I knew Ayden K Morgen would be going straight on my list. And once I finished? Holy crap balls!!! How have I not read her before?

First of all, if you like gritty romance with plenty of suspense and a hero that's a balance of swoo

Any lover of suspenseful crime stories with a heavy dose of romance will swoon when they get their hands on this story!

Read full review in the 2020 June issue of InD'tale Magazine.
The cover immediately piqued my interest. And I’m so glad that I decided to give this book a chance.

Oh? Oh my goodness! What a heartwarming story!

I discovered a book full of warmth and a message of hope.

While reading, I found the plot to pick up rapidly, and the characters to be better written than I expected.

All the way through, it was fantastic.

Detective Octavio Hernandez has been assigned to dismantle the Mexican drug cartel. This case was all too familiar to him as he personally faced a l

Kill For You features Octavio Hernandez and Faith Donovan, who have been in parts of the Her Best Friend's Father series and Fight For You. Octavio is a detective with the Lost Angeles Police Department and is terribly overworked. Faith works as a bartender in a gang controlled bar, where she receives no pay check for her troubles, but at least she's not cooking and cleaning for the gang boss when she's tending bar!! This book absolutely could be read as a stand alone, but you get so much more o ...more

I enjoyed this book because the relationship that builds between Faith and Octavio is not lightning fast. It is more like a slow burn. She is very innocent in the ways of relationships and watching her navigate through all the feelings at a slower pace makes sense to me. They learn to communicate with each other in all the right ways, and even though they get steamy, it is not just wham bam thank you ma’am.

When a young woman held against her will by the cartel for years is caught in deadly crossfire during a gang war, she doesn't expect to be saved by a hot detective who is determined to keep her safe.

Book 2 of the A Warrior for Her series is my second novel by the author and my review for Book 1 of the series, can be found at Fight For You.  Ms. Morgen's books are full of hot alpha males and vulnerable, yet feisty, females. Her books also have a number of great supporting characters. Some from bo

TITLE: Kill for You
AUTHOR: Ayden K. Morgen
SERIES: A Warrior for Her Book #2
RELEASE DATE: 17 March 2020


My goal this year has been to read as many new-to-me authors as a I can. I must admit im doing a piss poor job of it. Primary because often the hype of the blurb doesn’t actually live up to the book, so I find that I’m getting more and more reluctant. So, I go for the “safe” authors. Having said that, am I glad to have across this book. Absolutely blew my mind away.

Ayden K. Morgen has written a 5-star book that has Faith dealing with everything that has happened to her in the past 5 years with the help of one Detective Octavio Hernandez. Faith has been under the control of the gang Los Zetas for the last 5 years and her life has been a living hell. All she wants is to get away from them but they hurt people who are nice to her so she has no one on her side now. She is at the only place that she has a little freedom and all of a sudden bullets start flying ...more

What a treat to find a new book boyfriend to swoon over! I love when, with each new book an author releases, I find another set of characters to fall in love with and root for.

Detective Octavio Hernandez is a homicide detective with the LAPD. Octavio was a smaller character in the Her Best Friend’s Father series as well as Kill For You, and I'm very happy that he now gets a chance to tell his own story. When he is called to investigate a drive by shooting in gang territory, he finds Faith Donov
A romance set against the backdrop of gang wars, abuse, and strong men who fight for good.

I’m following this gritty series with obsessive interest because every couple tells an unforgettable story of sacrifice and deep love. Octavio and Faith stole some pretty good scenes in the previous novel, and now it's their turn to fully squeeze our hearts. And so they do.

Gang violence, human trafficking, abuse, and revenge are some of the heavy themes that this book dives into.

"She sees things most don't, remembers what most forget."
Ever had a hard day? Ever felt like life was harder than it should be? Me too. But after reading this story, I'm rethinking my whining ways. Faith is a woman who's had hard days. Every single day that she draws a breath, her life is harder than it should be. Because Faith is a victim of human trafficking.

You may think you've heard a story like Faith's before. But you probably haven't. She wasn't kidnapped to be someone's sex slave. Her ow

Kill for You by Ayden K. Morgen places you right in the middle of a bloody war between two of the deadliest gangs in the Los Angeles area. Faith Donovan is dazed when the shooting starts, tearing up the bar in which she works. She walks out of the bar relatively unharmed, which is the only lucky thing that has happened to her. Tired of seeing those around her die, Faith decides to help Detective Octavio Hernandez place names to the faces of the dead and injured.  She knows this only means anothe ...more

Along the way, they have help from his friends and fellow law enforcement officers, help protecting her, help finding out why the gang wants her back so badly, help discovering who her father was.

A Terrific Story

I won’t get into the premise of this book because the authors blurb does a good job with that.

What I will say is that Ayden does a terrific job with a horrific subject. I was so taken in by the depth of the two main characters of Octavio and Faith that I read way late into the night or should I say early morning as I needed to know how it would all work out. There were quite a few surprises within the storyline along the way and one that I didn’t see coming.

I received an advanced copy of this novel for my honest review.

This book continues as the other in the series with so much suspense, violence, tragedies, love, hot sex, more suspense and over the top action. We get to see Faith and Octavio story evolve in this book. Now mind you the books in the series are standalone but reading the full series will allow the characters to grow on you and with you from book to book.

Another amazing love story with feeling, emotion, and an incredible in depth plot tying all the men and ladies we already love from previous books from Ayden!

Having a dynamic like this is really interesting in that we get to see a whole new level of characters from previous books like Kincaid, Mila, and Roman; while also digging into a new branch of the same city and what areas this new book will explore.

This story is really one of a woman who is dealing with a lot of pain and ptsd, which is in

Kill For Her takes us through a kaleidoscope of emotions and situations. From the very beginning, we experience fear, pain, heartbreak, courage, faith, hope, and attraction. That's within the first five pages of the book, people! And Morgen doesn't shy away as she broaches heavy subjects like gang wars and human trafficking.

It is well written with a well-developed plot, moves along at a brisk pace, and an on the edge of your seat page turner full of suspense, action, nefarious acts, twists and turns, and more.

I was hooked on this story 2 chapters in. Faith is another amazing female lead that spends most of the book coming to terms with her tragic history and becoming the strong woman that Octavio sees from the start. Both characters have had their lives upset by the Zetas gang. But Octavio is a take charge Alpha guy who takes Faith and shows her life can be so much more. Every chapter had me falling a little bit more in love with him. He is the perfect foil to Faith. Plus we got to visit Roman and Ki ...more

Octavio and Faith connect at a crime scene. Octavio is investigating the gang shooting and Faith is a reluctant witness.
The story unfolded with a bang but moved slow in the chapters thereafter. Only after the 50% mark does the pace pick up again. This is a standalone in a series and you do meet other couples and the set up for further stories is included.

Faith is a slave to a cartel in LA. When Detective Octavio Hernandez saves her, it becomes his job to protect their star witness. Faith has been mistreated for most of her life and living free is her goal. She is still a captive, just to the police and now hunted by the cartel. Octavia is big and handsome and entranced by this small tortured female. A really good read. Sexy, romantic and danger filled.

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

If you are looking for something different, fast paced, sexy and addicting, this is it.
Relationship btw Faith a victim/witness to a gang and Octavio, the cop went from professional to an attraction which is against the ethics of Octavios job.
It's simply interesting and irresistible
