One Wrong Move - Blog Tour: Review & Giveaway

It's time for my blog stop for the One Wrong Move Blog Tour.

As part of my stop I bring you the review of the book and  two awesome giveaways courtesy of the author Shannon McKenna.






ABOUT THE BOOK.
 
SECRETS NEVER DIE.
Alez Aaro has spent most of his life on the run from his Ukrainian mafia family. But when he learns that crazu Aunt Tonya, the only relative who ever gave a damn about him, is dying, he risks returning home to say goodbye. He's prepared for anything except the call from his friend, Bruno Ranieri, that sends him on a wild and dangerous ride with a mysterious woman who holds a deadly secret and a white hot passion that binds them together.
Social worker Nina Christie has no idea how much trouble she’s in when her Aunt Helga shows up bleeding at her shelter, babbling in Ukrainian—and with one inexplicable act thrusts Nina into the heart of a nightmare. Now a ruthless crime syndicate will stop at nothing to make Nina disappear, and only Alex Aaro, that inscrutable six-foot-four rock hard slab of lean muscle, stands between her and certain death. Now Nina and Alex are in a race against time, death, and their desire for one another…

ABOUT THE AUTHOR.

 
Shannon McKenna is the NYT bestselling author of over ten action packed, turbocharged romantic thrillers, among which are the stories of the wildly popular McCloud series. She loves tough and heroic alpha males, heroines with the brains and guts to match them, villains who challenge them to their utmost, adventure, scorching sensuality, and most of all, the redemptive power of true love. Since she was small she has loved abandoning herself to the magic of a good book, and her fond childhood fantasy was that writing would be just like that, but with the added benefit of being able to take credit for the story at the end. Alas, the alchemy of writing turned out to be messier than she'd ever dreamed. But what the hell, she loves it anyway, and hopes that readers enjoy the results of her alchemical experiments.

MY REVIEW.
 
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

One Wrong Move is a refreshing and amazing reading. For the cover and the synopsis you might wait for one of those romance novels with a damsel in hurries and a hero saving her every five minutes. Well, you are so wrong!

This book presents us Nina, a social worker, who is attacked by an old friend who injects her with a mysterious drug. Her friends Lily and Bruno sent a guy to help her. Aaro is a totally hot guy, bad-ass, with a bad temper, at first he didn’t wanted to help her but a series of events reunites them in a journey full of action.

The story has a great ingredient in the form of some powers the characters have. The all read-control-mind thing adds a paranormal element to the story that only makes it better.

A story that never lacks emotion, One Wrong Move, surprises you with a new twist in every new page. Nina and Aaro have to overcome so many obstacles before the time is too late while they fight against the feelings they have for each other.

Creating characters with such a baggage like Aaro and Nina is probably not an easy task, but Shannon makes a wonderful job telling their past and revealing their personalities. As a result we have the chance to read about two deep and well created characters that make the perfect pair for the story.

My favorite thing of the book was that Nina is a strong, brave, intelligent woman. A woman that has learned to be strong and face everything that comes in front of her. Nina is sometimes the one that has to save the day proving that a girl can also be the one rescueing the boy.
One wrong move is in a great novel that felt shorter than the 400 pages it has.
