The Lion Security series fires off with Obsidian Liquor, where no one escapes the Russian mafia's flame...
While a brutal competition of America's heroes is held in the United States, Elizabeth Forter is on a personal mission to destroy the Mayor of New York City. But when she’s caught red-handed by a man who kills for a living, her enmity rapidly turns to fear.
Daniil Kozar isn't a man to trifle with, and Elizabeth is forced to strike a deal with the mafia king. Her every action is watched, and she needs to decide how to handle the gun-toting criminal--and his seductive charm.
Daniil may be the devil her father warned about. Or he may be the sensual awakening Elizabeth never knew she needed. Somewhere, Elizabeth's dad is screaming a prayer..
Elizabeth is a reporter out for the story of her lifetime. Unfortunately it isn't as easy as all that and she has to make some decisions and follow the leads of others. It also means she might get more than she bargained for.
Obsidian Liquor is a thrilling tale that introduces readers to the Lion Security Team and especially Elizabeth and Daniil. The characters are intriquing and the story pulls you in and keeps you on your toes. Elizabeth comes off as pretty ruthless in her hunt for the truth, but she also has morals and a real belief in doing the greater good. Daniil is ruthless in his power, but I also believe he feels strongly about that he does bad things with good intentions.
I liked the banter, and bits of humor throughout this story. I look forward to continuing the series.
