The Killmores (A Killmore novel) by Martha Sweeney
4 Stars!!!!

Wow is what comes to mind first. This is the second book in the series and I was not disappointed. I was just glued to the pages to see how things would unfold. The author really has a refreshing style and the world she has created really grabs you and keeps you on the edge of your seat.

The chemistry between Aiden and Laurie just heats up more in this book and the drama that unfolds around them really adds to the whole dynamic. I was drawn in as Laurie’s past comes back into play and how things get resolved. The whole undertone of the book of the mob and corruption really just adds to the story. I found myself really routing for Aiden and Laurie. I look forward to reading more from this author in the future.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

So hopefully you started with book one, Killmore, because this book is going to blow you away just as much and make a lot more sense to you if you do so. Also it will prepare you to clear your calendar like I did for this one. I knew I had to have a day set aside to devour this in one sitting. I completely neglected life and adulting for the first one and I just couldn’t manage to miss a moment here either. I was a skeptic that I would love this one as much given that Killmore topped my favorite read of all of Martha Sweeney’s novels and was a top five reads of 2018. This one is a continuation of the story of Laurie and Aiden, both of which are great strong and relatable characters. I really can’t find a way to share any of the juicy details without spoiling the greatness of the story for you so for any of that you will have to pick up this gem and devour it for yourself. You won’t be disappointed that you did! I can’t wait to see what will come next from Ms. Sweeney! Thanks for the great reads!

The Killmores (Killmore #2) by Martha Sweeney
5 out of 5 stars
The Killmores is book two in the Killmore series written by Martha Sweeney is a great book that finishes the story between Aiden and Laurie. The characters are well written I love their little quirkiness and banter. This is an action-packed, espionage romantic suspense thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat and want more!
Laurie is always looking over her shoulder on the run from her past. Though Aiden and she are together, Laurie can’t escape the demons who haunt her. To Laurie, she must keep running to keep the Devil’s beasts off her scent.
Laurie’s Nightmares eventually become reality and she thrust face to face with the Devil. We have new players enter the game, people die, truths are revealed, and Laurie is forced to chose: to either fight or give up completely.
Can Aiden save the woman he loves or will he be outwitted and left with his love dead in his arms? While Laurie is entrapped by the Devil, will she fight or give in? Will these two finally have a happily ever after all the years on the run?
I highly recommend this book/series and I hope we get to see these two again…

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

I did not know what to expect when I picked up Killmore but I knew it would be good for sure being an Martha Sweeney novel. I had no idea it would be this good though. I was taken on a completely up and down emotional rollercoaster with Leia/ Laurie and I honestly couldn’t tear myself away for one second from start to finish. I found myself finishing up this book in just a few short hours. I am super excited to know the next one, The Killmores, is available now to devour. That is actually what I will be doing as soon as I finish up this review.

This follows the tragic and yet transformative story of Leia to Laurie. At first we meet Leia. She is miserable with her husband and wants so badly to escape his abuse. This man not only abuses her but lets others abuse her for profit too. Finally things fall into place and she finds herself in the witness protection program.

Seven years later and Leia is now Laurie running a business and keeping things close to the vest like her past, the few friends she trusts, many weapons, and of course her heart. Everything will get a little tricky though when the handsome Agent Aiden Kilmore comes into her life and needs her help. These two have a connection that will ignite the screen of your kindle on fire! I suggest that you have a tall glass of water nearby! Watch out for the twists and turns that you just won’t see coming even with the warnings. I can’t say much more without ruining all the fun. For all that and more you will have to devour this little gem for yourself! Happy reading!

The Killmores (Killmore #2) by Martha Sweeney – Review by Emily Walsh

The Killmores (Killmore #2)The Killmores
ByMartha Sweeney
My Rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Killmores (Killmore #2) by Martha Sweeney was a action packed, not your normal romance thrill, with a power couple could give Mr. and Mrs Smith a run for their money.

I am in deep with this series, it’s everything I never knew I wanted in a action romance. Both are kickass, both are amazing, and this isn’t a story about the hot action, alpha guy saving the girl. No, no, this story is about a powerhouse couple that work together, fight it out and know how to give and take.

Outside of the nail biting action and heart pounding intense situations, the writing is on point. Everything flowed cohesively, transitions were near seamless and, the detail was rich and drawing. I felt like I was watching a blockbuster action movie instead of reading a book.

Not one for spoilers, I don’t want to say anymore as it will ruin this fan-freaking-tastic book. I will warn you that this is part of a series, and it picks up pretty much were the last leaves off. It has a continuation timeline and plot, so I highly suggest you read the first book, Killmore, as to not get confused.

So if you haven’t guest, I highly, highly recommend you get your hands on this book, this series. Take my stamp of approval that you will be capture by this power couple, their resolved and, the endless thrilling action.

Happy reading

Killmore (Killmore #1) by Martha Sweeney

5 out of 5 stars

This is the first book that I have read by Ms. Sweeney. I didn’t know if I hated this book or loved it but I just couldn’t put it down. This story is suspenseful, action packed, with pull your hair out emotionally, intense ride and this is the story for you.

I loved Laurie she was such an amazing character with everything she has been through she doesn’t trust easily and she looks over her shoulder all the time.
She knows not to look to anyone else to keep her safe she can only depend on herself. The last thing she needs a man especially a Fed. But is he the one she has to watch out for or is her past coming back to haunt her.

The characters in this book are well developed and I loved the banter with the Snarky comments that were thrown at each other they made me laugh because the comments were out of this world. I loved the way they always kept each other wanting although never giving too much away.

Can the Feds keep Laurie safe? Will Laurie be able to trust men again? Will Laurie have a happily ever after?

Like I said earlier I didn’t know if I loved this book or hated it but this was a funny action pack romance with a cliffhanger. I can’t wait to see what Ms. Sweeney has instore for us in book two of this series.

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

Killmore by Martha Sweeney is part one of a two part series. All I can say is wow. How she dealt with what she did for as long as she did was amazing, the it all hits the fan. Fast forward in time to her life now, Laurie has moved on and enjoying life with her dogs Cain and Mabel (loved their names). But is the past really ever truly dead and gone?

I have a friend at work that I will talk books with from time to time. She is quite picky over the years I have learned what she likes. I recommended this book to her before I was half way through it and I can’t wait to see what she thinks of it.

There are things I want to mention but they could be considered spoilers so I won’t mention them. I will say that I cannot wait to get started on the next book.

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

Killmore by Martha Sweeney is a five star novel. I love how we are thrown into the story right from the get go. Some stories take a while to get the story across but this one starts of right from the start with action packed adventure. Lori got into the thick of things with a Mexican crime lord. When the feds get to her and want her to help them, she agrees because she knows she can’t be a part of this life anymore. Without any trust in her new witness protection, she has to stay on full alert and keep on training so she can be as strong as she needs to be in order to keep herself safe. Just because they are the feds, doesn’t mean they will be able to always be there to keep her safe. I cannot wait to read book #2!

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.

Killmore (Killmore Series, #1) by Martha Sweeney – Review by Emily Brockschmidt

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

“Killmore” by Martha Sweeney is the first of two of the Killmore novels. Our main character is a woman who is not to be messed with. She has been through too much as it is and is determined to do what she needs to do. She is strong, smart and sexy, a deadly combination. I won’t reveal any details, even her name, for it all plays a major part in this story and I don’t want to give anything away! This fierce woman is not one to easily trust anyone. Her guard is always up and she is always ready for what needs to be done. Some of her bickering with other characters got on my nerves, but is just goes to show that she doesn’t let anyone else dictate her life. This book is very story driven, and the story is a darn good one! When I had to put the book down, my thoughts would drift back to it and left me wondering what would happen next. The story is exciting, witty and very dark at times. If you like a leading lady with some secrets and an intense story, then this is the book for you! I give “Killmore” five stars and can’t wait to read book two, “The Killmores!”
