Review: Ocean Kills – Jade Hart
Ocean Breeze witnessed her family’s demise at the early age of eight-years-old. The experience has left her traumatized in more ways than one. So much so, that it’s changed her entire existence, as well as her genetic code. You see, she can teleport from place to place, an ability she makes the most of.
Vowing to make the men who stole her family and her innocence away from her pay, Ocean has spent her entire life hunting cutthroats and those who seek to do others harm. The knowledge that she’s been eliminating the scum of the earth should have pleased her greatly. Unfortunately, all it’s been doing is taking a piece of her soul with every kill. Or so she thinks.
Telling herself that she’s working a bit of good in the sordid world she lives in, Ocean promises herself that she’ll stop killing people once she finds those who’ve caused her so much heartache. Her plan has been going well up until the moment she meets Callan Bliss. The mere sight of him wreaks havoc with her libido, something she tries very hard to deny. Yet her treacherous body refuses to keep the handsome cop at arms length.
Determined to ignore the new stirrings of her heart, Ocean dives head first into her next assignment. Yet never once did she imagine the pain and heartache that ensues from doing so. Self preservation is the key if she’s to survive what’s coming her way. Unfortunately, that’s easier said than done. Fighting to retain a piece of herself, she soon realizes that she has no other option but to place her trust in Callan’s hands. It’s either that, or lose sense of who and what she is, something she will do anything to keep from happening at all costs.
The action starts from the moment you begin reading, and doesn’t let go until the very end. I think this is a wonderful start to a very entertaining and thrilling series. Ocean may be a badass vigilante, but the brief looks into who and what she really is was endearing. She’s gone through so much, and has done her best to live her life how she sees fit. I’ve got to admit that a couple of twists and turns were mind-boggling, but it makes understanding her part of the story that much better. I look forward to what’s to come for the series itself.
Around the world, murderers and rapists pick off the innocent. Killing loved ones, separating families, and ruining lives.
As an eight-year-old girl, Ocean witnessed her family’s massacre and something altered inside her. Twisting her genetic code… unlocking an ability to teleport.
Ocean Breeze was never destined to be normal, especially being named after air-freshener. She’s a shadow, a ghost—a dark savior of the innocent. Armed with a switchblade in her bra, and a box-cutter in her pocket, she hunts the filth of the world.
Callan Bliss is a Sydney Police Officer whose skill set is far above a normal cop. All his fellow officers see is a hard-worker who loves to catch perpetrators and surf, but that’s because they don’t know his past. When Callan arrests a suspicious looking prostitute, coming face to face with a self-confessed vigilante, his secrets aren’t that easy to keep silent anymore.
Ocean hates the police with a passion, and has no intention of being held captive by a cop, even if he is sexy as hell. Teleporting from under his nose, Ocean hunts her next target—a man responsible for the largest sex ring in South Africa—and he’s about to die. But she doesn’t count on Callan giving chase, nor the body-quaking lust which consumes them. However, Ocean’s dark hobbies take precedence over what her heart wants—her thirst for murdering is killing her too, and not even Callan can save her.
