Nobody likes the game of cat and mouse more than Ellie Collins. It is what she is trained for. A deadly assassin, Ellie is seeking vengeance. She wants the man from her past, her childhood, to pay for his sins. Her journey leads her into the arms of Alex, a man who she thinks she has all figured out. 

Successful lawyer, Alex King, isn’t looking for complicated. He isn’t searching for anything that can possibly interfere with his well-orchestrated life. That is until he meets Ellie. Soon he becomes a pawn in her game of revenge. What starts as a whirlwind, lust-filled affair, Alex and Ellie’s relationship spirals into something much more than either of them expected.  

When the pieces are set and the players are primed, can either escape the final move of checkmate?

Ellie is out for revenge on the man who killed her father and took away her childhood. Having made it her life's ambition, she is no closer to fulfilling it and needs a new plan. Hoping to find an in with his business partner, Ellie attaches herself to Alex as part of her next move.

As the monster continues to evade her and taunt her, her professional and personal lives blur as Ellie finds herself liking Alex too much. She risks more than her life with this plan but heart as well.

This was the start of Ellie's game plan. Whilst the majority of this focussed on Ellie and Alex's developing relationship, it was needed to be able to understand the impact of her past on her, the toll it is taking on her and what she is giving to get the monster who destroyed her life. I am definitely looking forward to seeing how the rest of this series unfolds.
