The Killmores (Killmore #2)

The Killmores by Martha Sweeney

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


“The Devil has a seductively sweet, sinister song that tantalizes the soul to its very core. It sings more sweetly when your soul has been tainted like mine.”

…..”The nights the Devil starts to sing his lullaby is when I start to question how much longer she can hide from all of it before she’s swallowed whole by the darkness.”


The Killmores is the highly anticipated second, and final book in the Killmore Series by Martha Sweeney. It is an intense, action-packed romantic suspense- with danger, drama, conflict, passion, friendship, love, camaraderie/brotherhood, family bonds, and some humour. This book has been 2 years in the making, and I must admit that I wasn’t sure it would be worth the wait- or live up to my expectations. But I can honestly say that it was definitely well worth the wait. It had me completely hooked, biting my nails and on the edge of my seat, while everything unfolded. I was so caught up in the story that I devoured it over the course of an afternoon/evening.
As we discovered in the first book, Laurie had been placed in witness protection by the FBI. She was their ‘inside-man’ and informant on a notorious crime lord and his drug and human trafficking ring. Then years later the FBI show up in her life again, asking for help in an investigation. Aiden is one of the agents tasked with the dangerous assignment. They need Laurie as her help. As the investigation mounts, and they spend time together, feelings develop, and Laurie and Aiden soon find themselves in a romantic relationship. There is much danger and action throughout the first book- things I won’t go into because I don’t want to spoil it for you if you haven’t read it yet. I will say that if you haven’t read book one yet, you really need to do so before starting on this one as there is a bridging storyline- and you need to know all the details from the first book in order to fully appreciate and understand everything in this book.
Book two picks up a few months after the first book finished. Laurie and Aiden are travelling the world in an effort to stay one step ahead of Laurie’s past. They move around a lot, never staying in one place for very long. Laurie is haunted by her past, paranoia has set in and she’s always looking over her shoulder. She’s on edge all the time and won’t allow herself to fully relax. This makes her a little difficult to live with and Aiden is so supportive and understanding throughout it all…And she really doesn’t make it easy for him at times. So, what happens when their worst fears are realised, and Laurie finally comes face to face with her past. Will Aiden be able to rescue her, or will he be too late? You really should read this brilliant book/series and find out all the thrilling details for yourself.
This story has so much action, mystery, drama and suspense- that I ended up in a page flipping frenzy in my attempts to find out what would happen next. There were clever twists that I just didn’t see coming. It was definitely an unputdownable read!
The characters are all so well developed; having their own quirks, flaws, and personalities. Laurie really frustrated me with her attitude and being so difficult to get along with- I understand why she was like that, but I still wanted to shake her at times, as the push-pull was a bit much. Aiden was so patient with her- swoon!
Ms. Sweeney infused this story with quite a lot of intensity, emotion, suspense, sizzle, and humour. I liked the funny banter and quips, especially between Aiden, Mark and DJ. The “Fake ID” scene was hilarious, as was the names they gave their missions.
I think this series would make a great movie, or Television mini-series!
I definitely recommend this book and I can’t wait to see what Ms. Sweeney does next!

Thank you, Ms. Sweeney!

The Killmores by Martha Sweeney
Five Stars

The Killmores is the second book in the Killmore series by Martha Sweeney. This series should be read in order, so if you haven’t read Killmore already stop right here and read it first. You won’t be disappointed it is also a five star read. This book begins where the first book ends and it is filled with mystery, suspense and action. If you are like me, you won’t be able to put this book down and it will keep you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end.
Laurie is such a strong character with bada** tendencies, which I love is a female lead. Aiden is ready to follow Laurie to the end of the earth and I love how we find out more about him in the story. I don’t want to give any spoilers, so I’m going to leave it there. I absolutely recommend this book, series and author, and am looking forward to reading more from Ms. Sweeney.

The Killmores, A Killmores Novel, by Martha Sweeney

5-stars

This second book continues to follow Aiden and Laurie as they deal with the devil. Action packed and addictive I could not put this book down. Such amazing characters and an excellent storyline. I loved how everything played out. I was shocked by several things with the storyline that I didn’t expect but I absolutely loved it. I do recommend that you read the first book in this series since it ties in with it. I don’t think it would have made since on some things had I not read the first. Great book!

The Killmores By Martha Sweeney. This book I honestly believe is even better than book one and that one was out of this world good. I highly recommend reading these books in order. I was excited to read this action packed thriller with characters I just head of heels for. I was constantly on the edge of my seat trying to read as fast as possible to see what happens next. The author paints a world that comes alive before your eyes with words. Laurie and Aiden are characters that drag you into their world. I love a strong female character and you definitely get that with this story. I couldn’t put this book down and was definitely up way into the night because I just had to know what happened. I’m giving this book a five star review and highly recommend it to anyone! A must read for sure!

The Killmore’s (Killmore Book 2) by Martha Sweeney – Review by Emma Morreale

The Killmores (Killmore #2)The Killmores by Martha Sweeney
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Laurie and Aiden are killer power couple. Pun intended.
With book one of this series being so good, I had high expectations for the sequel. All in all, Martha Sweeney did a pretty good job. There were bits where Laurie lost faith in herself and it didn’t really sit well with me because she is a total badass and it just didn’t seem to me like that what her character would actually do. It seemed more like drama for dramas sake.
Other than that I enjoyed this book immensely. Aiden never treated Laurie like anything other than an equal and there was never any over the top masculinity stunts that I’ve seen all too much of recently.
More than anything, what makes a book great is a solid cast of secondary characters and believable villians. The Killmore’s has that in spades!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Killmore’s (Killmore #2) by Martha Sweeney is the second book in this wonderful series and has you turning the pages of this great story to find the conclusion to this great partnership.

Laurie is a strong, bad ass female character who I loved to read about and the dynamic in the relationship between her and Adian is amazing. We got to see some of Laurie’s history in the first book but this book expands and draws you into more thrilling mysteries the further you read.

Adian is as dependable as ever but he views Laurie as an equal and they tackle the dangers together and I love how this relationship works, he is devoted to Laurie.

This was a great well written story with the twists and turns of a great thriller. The book gripes you from the first words and has you thumbing through the pages to get to the end as fast of possible to see what happens in the end. The characters compliment each other so well and the interaction between them is a joy to read.

I love that there is a strong, fearless female character which drives through the story to give you a sense of pride but also you see the vulnerable side to her with her nightmares and fears. I do not recommend you reading this as a stand alone as you do need to understand the back story from the first one but I would recommend reading the whole two books it is an awesome series.

4 out of 5 stars

Killmores is the perfect follow up to the first book in Martha Sweeney’s Killmore series. These books aren’t meant to be read as stand alone reads, if you haven’t started from beginning of this action packed rollercoaster then I highly recommend doing that now.
I wasn’t sure what to expect from Killmores with such a strong set up of book there was no way the second would be just as captivating, action packed as the first book. Of course I was pleasantly surprised to see the series continues on without a hitch with memorable, enjoyable characters both new and old.
This is the type of book you crave reading when you don’t quite have the time, the kind you take with you anywhere “just in case” you need something to do while you wait.
Martha Sweeney is a new to me author that is officially on my radar. I look forward to reading more in the future.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Well, I’m pleasantly surprised. It almost feels like book one was a warm up to this epically action-packed adventure! The Killmores is a fast paced, suspenseful love story, filled with a ton of twists and surprises. It was a fun ride, and really enjoyable to read. I’ll warn you there are some dark moments, as Laurie wrestles with her demons. But on the other side of the coin, it amuses me, the situations she finds herself in, in relation to the various men who show interest in her. Laurie must be quite irresistible! Aiden is still a super good guy, just wanting to save the day. He’s a good book boyfriend. I really loved this.

Killmore (Killmore Book 1) by Martha Sweeney – Review by Karyn Taylor

Killmore (Killmore #1)Killmore by Martha Sweeney
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Killmore is the explosive first book in the Killmore duet by Martha Sweeney. These books are not intended to be read as standalones and you will need to read them in order, to understand the story.
This book totally blew me away and I was gripped from beginning to end. Thankfully I have the second book, The Killmores, to jump straight into as I can’t wait to see how this story concludes and how many twists and turns it will take us on, on the way there.
Heroine of the book, Laurie has to be one of the strongest female characters I’ve ever read. She is totally kick ass awesome and takes absolutely no crap from anyone. Starting off as the wife of a dodgy cop who pimps her out to a major Mexican crime lord, she then goes into witness protection only to discover that her next door neighbour is an even bigger crime lord. Then federal agent Aiden Killmore pretends to be her boyfriend to be able to spy on her neighbour. Totally hacked off with hoe she’s been treated by the feds in the past, Laurie does everything in her power to make life hell for Aiden. Through time Aiden breaks down a couple of the many walls she has built around herself and their fake relationship becomes real. However Laurie’s life is still at risk and life is far from easy for Laurie and Aiden.
This is a series that I’d highly recommend to other readers. This first book had me on the edge of my seat and I’m so excited to see what happens next.
