Title: Bad Blood
Series: Royal Blood #2
Author: Amity Cross
Release Date: April 7, 2015
A killer without a master.
A monster without a leash.
Xavier “X” Blood is a contract killer. Cold, calculating, devoid of feeling.
He knows the best way to drive the life from another human beings eyes, but what he doesn’t bargain on is wanting to save a life he’s meant to take.
Mercy Reid was good at running from her demons. That was until she met X and her life was thrown into chaos.
Mercy finally has him on her side…and in her bed, but it’s at a cost far greater than she could’ve anticipated.
On the run, they must learn to trust one another beyond their burgeoning love if they want to get through the coming chaos. Revenge, truth, lies...heartache...insanity. All of it threatening to drive them apart.
Mercy will do whatever it takes to avenge the horror that Sykes put her through. Anything. Even if she has to drown the last of her soul in the bad blood that threatens to destroy the last thing she holds dearest in her heart.

Amity hits it right in the sweet spot once again. I have to say that her darker books just do it for me.
In book one I fell in love with Mercy and X, they rode off into the darkness together and something new was created. A quest for revenge.
Mercy and X set out on their revenge mission to find Sykes. X teaches her how to be a killer, to switch off her emotions and she teaches him how to slowly switch his back on.We meet some new players in this story Vaughn who gives me the absolute willies is one of them, he is the man who will lead them to Sykes, but he has his own agenda. Vaughn has loved and lost, and doesn’t approve of what X is doing with Mercy.
“You’re just deflowering her humanity”
We watch the two of them grow closer, Mercy uses sex as a way to keep X from reverting and X uses it to keep her from acting on emotions. In their isolation they truly become “A monster and his apprentice”
Nothing is ever certain in any story, can they find Sykes? If they do can Mercy pull the trigger? Can X live with the truth of turning her into a monster? Will Royal Blood find them and kill him first?
I was left with two feelings at the end of this, relief and a sick sense that not all is as it seems...
A thrilling rollercoaster of action, sex, guns, revenge and a heart stopping good read – Again. I love Amity’s writing style and will be author stalking her to get the next book!
Once again a 5 **** Merciless Murderous Stars from me.
Amity Cross isn't her real name. That's no secret.
She is the author of wicked stories about rock stars looking for redemption, gritty romances featuring MMA fighters and dark tales of forbidden romance. She loves to write about screwed up relationships and kick ass female leads that don't take s**t lying down.
Amity lives in a leafy country town in southern Australia and can be found chained to her desk, held at ransom by her characters.
Don't send help. She likes it.
