I don’t even know where to begin with this one. I guess it’s best to just come out and say that this has got to be one my Top 5 favorite reads this year! J.A. Huss truly never disappoints in delivering one captivating drama.
I do have to admit that the book was a bit confusing at first (which is my own fault) since I skipped some of the pivotal books written before this book was released but in all honesty it was pretty easy to pick-up on. One thing I thought was helpful was taking the time out in reading the synopsis of Dirty, Dark and Deadly Series , 321 and Meet Me In The Dark. That way you have a better idea of the timeline and are aware of the characters involved.
About “Wasted Lust” ….the story revolves around the “reformed” assassin Sasha Cherlin. At the very young age she was trained by the Company to become a murderer. Her and her closest friends took down the Company years ago. She then becomes a free agent… or so she thought. Fast forwarding to current time she no longer identifies with that person she once. She altered her image significantly and is now a plain grad student.
Things however change when she finds herself being stalked by one Agent Jax Barlow. At first she assumes the worst, that her crimes have finally caught up with her but Sasha isn’t who Agent Jax is after. She becomes the stepping stone to getting to the primary target – Nick Tate.
Sasha hasn’t been in contact with Nick ever since he left her heartbroken ten years ago. She thought she blocked everything “Nick” but now that she is pulled back into that world again the emotions that she buried deep down in her psyche begin to resurface. She also realizes then that even if she is rich and successful she is unhappy.
There were so many factors that contribute to these feelings of sadness and Jax just so happens to be right there to help her through it. At first, I was very suspicious with his intent and also became exasperated with Sasha for giving in so easily but as the story unfolds we find that his intentions aren’t malicious as expected. This is just one of the many twists in this story.
If you asked me what I loved most about “Wasted Lust”… it would be its’ unpredictability. The twists and turns are endless! You barely recover from one unexpected event when another one is dropped upon you. It definitely kept my heart racing especially towards the end.
What I also found impressive besides the jaw-dropping storyline was the very well-developed characters. Sasha, Jax and even Nick were beyond intriguing and complex. As a matter of fact, ALL of JA Huss’ characters are such and that is one of the reasons why she is one of my favorite authors.
J.A. Huss never fails to amaze me! With all the books that’s she’s written she always manages to keep her stories fresh and exciting. I can not praise her enough for her extraordinary creativity. Loved this book and I can not wait to see who among the new characters that were mentioned in the Epilogue will end-up getting their very own story.
