Review:No Place to Hide by Shannon Stacey
Jack Donovan went through hell and back to save Isabelle once. Now she’s back in his life, hunted by an assassin so elusive some claim he’s only an urban legend. More than just a gun for hire, the killer is driven by a pathological need to take down his targets and, when Isabelle escapes the bullet meant for her, Jack knows he'll strike again. The only way to keep her alive is to keep her close, and Jack’s about to learn what hell really is.
In the year since Jack rescued her from a guerrilla compound and then walked away, Isabelle Arceneau has begun to put her life back on track. Now somebody wants her dead and Jack is once again her only hope for survival. As the Devlin Group races to uncover the killer’s identity and Jack and Isabelle go on the run in a desperate bid to keep her alive, she knows she can trust him with her life, but never again with her heart.

What I thought about No Place to Hide
Okay, I'll admit it. I've been missing Shannon Stacey's writing since the Kowalski series wrapped up. And I'll admit that I had no idea she wrote the Devlin Group series. It's completely different from the family dramas of the Kowalski series, and I was really drawn to checking it out.
No Place to Hide is the fourth book in the Devlin Group series, and it reads very well as a standalone. There's loads of action packed suspense as Jack Donovan tries to save Isabelle Arceneau from an assassin's bullet. He's as Alpha as they come, and she's not letting him go now that they're back together. I liked both of these characters and would have been happy to have a few more intimate scenes between between these two. There was good chemistry between the players on the run too. It reminded me of everything I love about Shannon Stacey's writing.
No Place to Hide is a page turner, and I finished this pretty quickly. I'm intrigued enough about the rest of the Devlin Group to put the first three books on my TBR, too.
If you are in the mood for a quick read with a little romance and lots of action, this just might be the title for you.
