ARC Review:Final Target by Zara Keane

Coming March 14,2016: An explosive new romantic suspense series set in the Dublin underworld.
“If the price is right and we approve of the job, we’re not too fussy who we work for. I’ve always had a code of honor, and I don’t give a crap if it’s not one recognized by a court of law.”

Semi-reformed gangster, Lar Delaney, joins forces with his brothers and cousins to form a private company of mercenaries.They’ll sell their services to everyone from government agencies needing off-the-books jobs to criminal organizations.

His last hit turns out to be his first love…
As a final job for his mob boss uncle, Lar Delaney agrees to eliminate one last target. Through the crosshairs of his sniper rifle, he realizes that his target is a former girlfriend—a woman who supposedly died five years previously.

Moira Collins is an intelligence agent whose cover has been shot to smithereens. When she finds herself on the wrong side of an assassin’s rifle, she’s appalled to recognize the only mark she ever let herself fall in love with.

What I thought about Final Target

When Lar Delaney showed up a few books ago in Love & Shamrocks, there was something about him that just made me want to know more about him. I was thrilled to see he would be the hero of Final Target, and that Moira from her Treasure Hunter's Ex would be his love interest.  

Zara Keane did an excellent job with this well-crafted romantic suspense tale.  Lar Delaney wants out from under his uncle's control, especially after finding out some details of a situation that had him incarcerated for five years.  He's ready to start fresh with his own business.  He's still not walking the straight and narrow, but that's Lar.  He's brilliant and dangerous -- and Uncle Frank wants one last job before he'll let him go. The job? Kill Moira Collins.

Secret agent Moira Collins is looking for answers to who killed her family in a church bombing in years ago.  She knows Lar from a past job, and when she runs into him in Dublin, it's clear that the relationship is not over.  There's still a lot of heat between them, and they forge a dangerous agreement to help each other complete their last jobs for their employer.

I loved all the details in this and the fact that I wasn't quite sure who was to blame until the very end of the book, which I should warn you ends in a bit of a cliffhanger. You'll definitely be left wanting Shane's book, which is the next book in this TRISKELION TEAM series.

This spin-off series is a great complement to the Ballybeg series. If you like romantic suspense with a nice touch of Ireland, this series and the Ballybeg series might be for you.
