Righteous Kill by Kerrigan Byrne Review:

WOOHOOO!! Today, I am reviewing a VERY good book by Kerrigan Byrne called, Righteous Kill. The title may sound like a mystery but its a romance! I couldn't freaking believe how absolutely good this book was and I hope you take my review to heart, and try this book out and hopefully, you all will love it as much as I did.
Note: I received a ARC copy of this book for an HONEST review.
"'Tis one thing to be tempted, another thing to fall."~William Shakespeare, Measure for Measure.

He's no stranger to sin...

A prolific serial killer is crucifying and 'baptizing' the working girls of Portland, and FBI Special Agent Luca Ramirez is locked in a desperate race to prevent the next casualty. The game changes when the latest victim is pulled out of the Willamette River alive, and Luca knows this witness may be his key to breaking the case. When the fanatical killer threatens her life a second time, Luca is assigned to protect the most unique and captivating woman he's ever met by going undercover as her lover. He finds himself locked in a relentless game of cat and mouse with an elusive and violent psychopath, while battling his temptation for the alluring woman he's charged to protect with his life. As the fatalities continue to mount, so does the intensity of his desire for a woman who should be forbidden, but is determined to dial up the heat.

International bestselling author Kerrigan Byrne laces dangerous, edgy content with palette-cleansing humor in this sexy, character-driven series debut that will leave you wondering... Is there such a thing as A Righteous Kill?
When I was asked to read this book I was worried that it had more mystery and murder then actual romance. I can honestly say that I have never been more happy to be SO wrong. Even though there was quite a bit of mystery there was just as much romance between the victim, Hero and the sexy FBI agent Luca. Righteous Kill had some surprising humor too. Hero was a such a unique, yet fitting name for such a strong and brave character. Even though she went through something traumatic, it did NOT stop her from trying to live her life with both humor and bravery. When Kerrigan threw Luca in the mix and made him Hero's lover, sparks flew, passion soared, and love blossomed. This was the first book that had me looking out my window wondering if there was a psychopath out my door wanting to torture and kill me and being VERY glad I don't live in the city. I was NOT expecting such a strong plot or such great humor and roaring passion. I can definitely say I will be anticipating the next book in this new series by Kerrigan Byrne. After reading this story, I knew I had to give this a rating it deserved. I gave this a FOUR AND A HALF OUT OF FIVE STARS!! That's right, this book was wonderful and well written. A true masterpiece!
