My review of Never Miss by Melissa Koslin

About the book:

Former CIA sniper Kadance Tolle possesses a special set of skills and a rare pedigree. She comes from a family of assassins, and by saving Lyndon Vaile's life she risks being found by them. Despite the danger, Kadance feels compelled to help Lyndon discover who is after him--and his research that seems to prove that the Ebola virus was manmade and is about to be weaponized.

With shadowy figures pursuing them and a Mastermind watching their every move, Kadance and Lyndon must scramble to stop an impending bioattack at the State of the Union address. But their warnings fall on deaf ears, and it becomes increasingly clear that there's no one they can trust--except perhaps each other.

Strap in for a breakneck story that will have you up all night, hurtling toward the last page as the clock ticks and time runs out.

My review:

This novel was a bit grittier than I thought it would be, but I enjoyed that part of the book the most. It was full of intrigue and had likable, yet imperfect characters. The timeliness of a weaponized virus story grabbed my attention, but that was not the best part of this novel. I felt their attraction and the pain that Kadence experienced when she allowed herself to feel safe and protected with Lyndon. I also felt her fear of love and yet it was unconditional love that inspired her to want to be different and eventually thawed her stone-cold sniper's heart. This book ended on a good note but at the same time some of it was not fully believable. I did enjoy the storyline of them being on the run while trying to stop the plot to unleash Ebola on the population... that held my interest. The fighting scenes were a bit too technical sounding and I got a bit lost in the details. The emotional connection the characters developed was the high point of the story for me. The cat made for a good sidekick, too. 

Never Miss was published by Revell and released in May 2021
