Reviving Izabel
J.A. Redmerski
Already Out!
Genre: Romantic Suspence, Adult
Series: In the Company of Killers #2
Determined to live a dark life in the company of the assassin who freed her from bondage, Sarai sets out on her own to settle a score with an evil sadist. Unskilled and untrained in the art of killing, the events that unfold leave her hanging precariously on the edge of death when nothing goes as planned.

Sarai’s reckless choices send her on a path she knows she can never turn back from and so she presents Victor with an ultimatum: help her become more like him and give her a fighting chance, or she’ll do it alone no matter the consequences. Knowing that Sarai cannot become what she wants to be overnight, Victor begins to train her and inevitably their complicated relationship heats up.

As Arthur Hamburg’s right-hand man, Willem Stephens, closes in on his crusade to destroy Sarai, she is left with the crushing realization that she may have bitten off more than she can chew. But Sarai, taking on the new and improved role of Izabel Seyfried, still has a set of deadly skills of her own that will prove to be all she needs to secure her place beside Victor.

But there is one test that Izabel must face that has the potential to destroy everything she is working so hard to achieve. One final test that will not only make her question her decision to want this dangerous life, but will make her question everything she has come to trust about Victor Faust.


-Krav Maga-

     The fluorescent lights running along the ceiling move by fast as I’m suddenly being dragged across the mat by my ankle.
     “There are no rules in Krav Maga,” I hear Spencer say, but I realize a half a second later that it’s not Spencer dragging me.
     It’s a woman, with light brown hair pulled into a ponytail at the back of her head. Confused by the turn of events, I’m too distracted to notice her foot coming down on my stomach. I yell out in pain, doubling forward as my legs and back come off the mat at the same time, my arms crossed over my abdomen. The breath is knocked right out of my lungs.
     “STOP!” Spencer says from somewhere behind me.
     I feel like I’m going to puke.
     The woman stops instantly and takes a few steps back.
     “Get up,” Spencer says and I decipher through the pain devouring my midsection that his voice is much closer than before.
     I look up to see him crouched behind me.
     “I’ll let you catch your breath,” he says gently and offers his hand. “This is Jacquelyn. My wife.”
     I grab onto his forearm and he grabs mine likewise and lifts me to my feet.
     “Nice to meet you,” I say to her with a God-awful grimace. “Or at least your foot.”
     She smirks.
     “Your man paid me to pretty much beat the shit out of you,” Spencer says. “But since I’m not in the habit of beating on women, I figure I should let my wife do the honors so that I can still get paid.”
     “It’s the best way to learn,” Jacquelyn speaks up. “That man of yours knows what he’s doing. Brutal? Sure. Necessary to one’s survival in close combat situations? Absolutely. For frail little bitches who do the dance of terror when they see a spider? Absolutely fucking not.”
     “Well, I’m not one of those,” I say icily. “That I can fucking assure you.”

  1. LOVE, LOVE these covers. The only thing better than them is knowing that J.A.'s writing is behind them!! Thank you so much for the chance to win!

  2. This sounds intense. The hint of sarcasm that Jessica always has in her books? It's there, but the brutal intensity? Oh wow. I hear that the MC goes through a lot of growth in the first book so I wonder what she was like before. Can't wait to get started with this series :) Thanks for sharing, sweets!

  3. Thank you so much for the giveaway. I am absolutely in love with this series!

  5. Well that was interesting a man paying for someone to beat up his girl. I bet she changes

  6. I still need to read the first book in this series Aman. It sounds dark and gritty and you know I love those kind of books. Not so much during the holiday season though, so I'm adding it to my list to read after the new year when I'm ready to be all emotional again:) Can't wait to see what you think of this one when you've devoured it!

  7. I still haven't read a single word by Redmerski, despite all the praise I've been hearing. Shame on me, right? I really AM a bit ashamed.
    Thank you so much for sharing the excerpt and giving me a much needed push, and thanks for the giveaway too.
