Hard Bounty by Tabatha Kiss
(Snake Eyes series book #5)
Rating: 5 Stars
Length: 152 Pages
I hadn’t read any of the Snake Eyes series books by Tabatha Kiss, but when I read the blurb for Hard Bounty I figured I’d sign up for the ARC. The copy I received came with a copy of the first four books in the series as well; I loved Hard Bounty so much that I sat down and read the first four this weekend, one right after the other. I haven’t read many books by this author but those that I have read have been so good that I couldn’t put them down.
This book is the 5th in the series so of course there were some moments that referred to moments in previous books, but each of them can be read as a standalone it seems. I’m slightly OCD so I wish I had read them in order, but after reading the first four (out of order) I was okay with it. This book follows the story of Lilah Hart & Archer Allen, both of who make appearances in the previous books. I’m just saying – Lilah is probably the biggest bad a$$ I’ve ever read about – female one at least. And the way the author wrote the relationship ups and downs between her and Archer kept me guessing the whole time; would they or wouldn’t they? This book made me shocked, it made me laugh, and it even made me cry..
