ARC Review! Kill Without Shame by Alexandra Ivy

Five brave military heroes have survived the hell of a Taliban prison to return home—and take on civilian missions no one else can. They’re the men of ARES Security. Highly skilled, intimidating, invincible, and one by one, tested again and again…

Lucas St. Clair’s prestigious family had a political future neatly planned out for him—one that didn’t include his high school sweetheart, Mia Ramon. Under their pressure, Lucas gave her up. But since surviving captivity, he’s a changed man—and a crucial member of ARES Security. When he discovers a dead man clutching a picture of Mia that bears a threatening message, his fiercest protective instincts kick in, and he knows he must go to her.

Mia has never forgiven Lucas for breaking her heart, and she’s convinced her feelings for him are in the past. But it’s soon clear that isn’t true for either of them. Now, determined to solve the crime and keep Mia safe, with his ARES buddies backing him up, Lucas will have to reconstruct the murder victim’s last days—and follow a lethal trail that leads right back to the fate of the woman he still loves…
There are romantic suspense novels that just work.  They get the balance of the suspense and the relationship correct.  They use the suspense of the situation to draw the characters together but also allow the characters to develop a relationship.  This book was one of them.  I thoroughly enjoyed it, and I was drawn into the story almost immediately.

I liked the characters.  I loved Lucas and Mia.  I liked that they were both strong and capable and that they brought this to their relationship.  This was a second chance, but as they were young when they separated, this was something that they built on but it was not all of the foundation for the relationship.

The mystery was not a surprise, but the characters involved and the way it was handled were interesting and well written.  The pacing was strong and moved from the suspense to the romance flawlessly.

This was my first novel by Alexandra Ivy, but it won't be my last and I am looking forward to the next in the series. I recommend this book.
