Release Blitz ~ #Review ~ Taking Care of the Target by Cindi Madsen

Cover Design: Makeready Designs
Release Date: January 23, 2017

Vince DaMarco always liked Cassie, the shy waitress who works at the restaurant that serves as a front for his mob boss uncle. Unfortunately, she witnesses a back alley hit, and while fleeing, she’s struck by a truck. Now she’s at the top of the hit list. Desperate to stop anyone who’d draw out Cassie’s death, Vince volunteers to take care of it.

Cassie Dalton has no recollection of her accident, but she’s told she’s lucky to be alive. A few years are missing from her memory, and the unsettling feeling that something isn’t right—along with the creepy sensation that she’s being watched—won’t go away.

Vince shows up right when Cassie needs him most. In a world of confusion, the rugged stranger is the one thing that makes sense. But little does she know, she’s found refuge in the arms of the very man who’s been sent to kill her.

Cassie was at the wrong place at the wrong time. An accident leaves her unable to remember, but the danger doesn't dissipate. Vince has had a thing for Cassie ever since she started working for his families restaurant. While he tries to stay on the legal side of the business, he knows his family ties makes a relationship with her too risky. When his uncle wants her dead, he offers to do it himself. A not so chance meeting brings the two back together and as they grow closer, Vince knows he needs to protect Cassie at all cost. Will it be enough? What will happen if Cassie remembers?
Madsen kept the story moving. It was fast-paced and full of action. The suspense was sprinkled throughout, mixed in nicely with the romance.
I really enjoyed these characters. Vince was such an intriguing character, caught between duty to family and his own morals. Cassie was an incredibly endearing lead. She worked so hard and just wanted to make something out of her life. I loved the progression of their relationship, even though it was partially born from strange circumstances, it was clear they were meant to be. Vince was protective of Cassie and they were so sweet together.
I was fully engaged in this story. I couldn't put the book down. I would definitely read more from Madsen and look forward to doing so.
