From USA Today bestselling author Katie Reus comes the next story in the explosive Redemption Harbor series where sparks fly and so do bullets…

He wasn’t supposed to fall for her…

She was a target. A contract that came across his desk by mistake. Axel was simply going to warn her that she was in danger and get out. Then he got a taste of her and fell hard. But they’re from two different worlds. Not only is she innocent, she’s out of his league. He should keep his distance, but he can’t. Not when someone wants her dead. Now he’s driven to protect her, to keep her safe.

What happens when she discovers who he really is?

Hadley moved to Redemption Harbor for vet school and to be closer to her new family. Now that her billionaire father knows about her existence, her life has changed drastically. She just never imagined that she might be targeted because of her family. And she definitely never imagined she would fall for the one man she should never want. A man who kills for a living. A man who’s obsessed with her. A man who will do anything to protect her from the danger lurking in the shadows.

  • A must read!!!

    It’s been a while since I’ve read a Katie Reus Book, and Innocent Target has drawn me right back in to her writing!!! We’ve got the mystery and suspense we’ve always loved from her, along with a sexy alpha hero, and sweet heroine. Axel and Hadley were perfect together. They definitely leveled each other out, and it was great to see him go from someone who was a bit scary, to a guy who would do anything for his love. I enjoyed the fact that even though her dad and brother are new in her life, they are completely protective of her, and would give their life for her. A phenomenal must read I would definitely recommend!!!

    Awesome addition to the Redemption Harbor series. This is the story we’ve waited for..Hadley’s HEA. We met Hadley in Dangerous Witness. She is the half-sister Brooks never knew he had. She has moved close to her father and brother in order to get to know them and continue with her attempt to become a vet. Little did she know that this would make her a target for revenge. There are people who don’t like her brother or her father and she is just an innocent pawn, waiting to be used by them. Axel is not a nice guy. Well, he is but he doesn’t see himself as anyones hero. He definitely doesn’t think he can be that for Hadley but something about her just grabs him. He becomes her protector, then her friend and eventually her hero. Love the gang from Redemption Harbor. If you haven’t read the earlier stories, you can read this as a stand alone but why would you? Katie Reus has another winning series.

    Axel is a contract killer, yet overall a good guy, he falls for Hadley. Mistaken contract, now he wants to warn her, and get out, was easier said then done. She was naive, a new father and family with money. Someone wants her dead. Well done plot of a love they both felt they shouldn’t have, the heart knows best. Protection and love is what Hadley needed, and he was the best there was, a good series, and good plot. Readers will love Axel and Hadley. Can be read as a stand alone, but all in series is good. Given ARC by Net Galley and KK Press for my voluntary review and my honest opinion.
  • A new favorite!

    By ~Mindy Lou~
    When I read the blurb on this book I knew this one was going to be my favorite of the series. I love the idea of a contract killer falling for a target. Already being a fan of Katie Reus and her Alpha's, I knew she would do this particular story line justice. If you have never read this author before, she doesn't go very dark in her series. While the hero is a contract killer, he is still very much a good guy. He's just lost faith in the system and has taken it into his own hands to bring down the bad guys. Hadley is a fairly new character to the series. We got introduced to her in the previous book when she approached Brooks letting him know she was his half sister. Her mom kept her from her father and Brookes growing up and is just now getting to know them. Hadley isn't from the world that Axel, her brother and all the other characters in this series are from. She's still young and somewhat naive but she gets a fast introduction into their dangerous world when she becomes the target. This is an awesome series and I'm looking forward to the next book.
