The Animal Under the Fur

Title: The Animal Under the Fur
Author: E.J. Mellow
Published: 30th March 2017
My Rating: 5/5
Recommend: Hell yeah!

From award-winning author E. J. Mellow comes an action romance dripping with vengeful delight.

Orphaned on the streets as a baby, Nashville Brown, a.k.a Kill Operative 3, knows better than to rely on anyone. With heightened senses and superhuman strength to survive, she’s been raised as the perfect assassin.

The trick to her success? Keeping everyone, even her best friend, at arm’s length.

Losing his entire family in the span of a year, Carter Smith left his ability to love buried deep in their graves. His only concerns now are completing his missions and effortlessly charming the next temptress to warm his bed.

The key to his accomplishments? Working alone mixed with a Casanova smile.

But when a deadly weapon needs to be stopped from falling into the wrong hands, the lone wolves find themselves thrown into an explosive partnership. Can Carter and 3 lower their guns aimed at one another long enough to succeed, or will their unwillingness to compromise end up destroying more than their perfect records? Whatever their differences, both agree on one thing—in the game of lies and deceit, the line between friend and foe is often blurred by blood splatter.

The Animal Under The Fur is a hate-to-loath-to-love standalone novel filled with savagery, secrets, and enough angst to wrinkle the pages you’ll find gripped in your hands.

Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review

O-M-G, GUYS!!!!!!!!

This book was soooooo goooooood, like unbelievably good and I don't know how to express how much I loved it.

Nashville and Carter find themselves working together when they both are sent on the same mission in China, with the lack of communication from their agents they both almost ruin their mission because of it. As fate would have it, they are both destined to see each other again and instantly hate one another. They are both extremely competitive and the top agents in their game, with their winning streak they have the tendency to get in to constant hand to hand combat and be at each other's throats. 

Nashville, who is A+ has super abilities that exceed those from the average human, this makes her one of the best assassins in the business. She is super feisty, has a short temper, incredibly loyal and her apathy when she goes in for the kill is astonishing. I adore her for being able to change persona's and mask her emotions keeping the other person constantly on edge. She finally meets her match in the form of 6ft 3, tall and handsome Carter....

Carter is the epitome of perfection with green eyes that make you want to just drown in them, he is the total opposite of 3. Whereas, Nashville is rigid, professional and gets the job done asap, Carter likes to enjoy his time and knows how to fun whilst doing his job. Carter and 3 are constantly bickering and their banter just wants to grab some popcorn and watch it all day.

I can't decide who I loved more, Carter or Nashville A.K.A 3. I really enjoyed reading the romance that started to brewing between them and what I loved most about it was it was not instant love. It was more like hating, arguing, fighting, then more fighting. And then learning to trust and respect each other through their mission. And when they did finally kiss oh boy was it worth it, if only someone like Carter would sweep me in to his arms like that! *swoons*.

What is even more astonishing was how much I loved the writing and plot, if I thought I loved the author's previous work, I am even more impressed with her work now, I am totally her fan. This book has everything in it; intense scenes, romance, kissing, suspense, kick ass heroine who takes no crap from anyone, hot swoon worthy characters and love. What more do you want?


Happy reading!
