Review: Paths by Brynne Asher


Published 2017

Blurb: Maya Augustine needed to disappear—her life depended on it.  When her path led her to the middle-of-nowhere Virginia, she found the perfect place to hide.  A woman on the run, Maya had no business befriending anyone, let alone allowing herself to become involved with a man … especially after her last experience.  Even so, she couldn’t help but become obsessed with the bruised, battered, and beautiful killer who walked into her life.


Grady Cain reached rock bottom.  His past finally caught up with him, causing him to lose his edge at work and in life.  Spiraling down a desperate path of remorse and guilt, Grady wasn’t expecting his refuge to come in the form of a woman.  Day in—day out, she was the only thing he’d allowed himself to think about. To focus on. To consume him.  


One was running. The other had nothing to run to.


Until these troubled souls crossed paths…


And two paths became one.


Warning: This author is a mom who runs a PG-13 home. This book is not PG-13. She would literally keel over and die if anyone under the age of 18 read this book. If you’re not of age, save an author from an untimely death and go read Harry Potter. He’s awesome. 


May be spoilers:

Paths is the 2nd in The Killers series. Even though it can be read as a standalone, I recommend reading in order as we some of the characters from the first. This has 28 chapters with an epilogue and is about Grady and Maya.

I really love that we get to see what happened to Grady when they did the mission from the first book, since we only got a glimpse of it.

Lots of violence, very descriptive. You can feel the emotions of the characters, which makes for a great read.

We see that Maya has been working at the winery and she’s hiding from her ex.

They both feel a connection and watch each other, which I thought was sweet.

I do love that we get everyone’s povs, even the bad guys.

Her ex does not want to be an ex. Everything changes when the ex finds her. Grady is all in.

I love their bantering back and forth and how honest they are with the other.

Lots of steaminess, even with it happening later in the story. Definitely don’t miss anything. Flows great. I loved seeing the characters from the first story.

The only drama really is from the ex. He causes a few headaches, makes threats, but doesn’t hurt their relationship any.

I thought it was a great addition to the story line. I loved it actually. Writing is great, flow is very good, which makes for an easy read. I loved how they were together.

No real push/pull. No ow drama at all, om drama-just from her ex who didn’t want to stay an ex, no separations, neither were virgins, his past wasn’t brought up.

Epilogue is 3 years out. They are happily married with a son and pregnant. I’m sure we’ll see them in the next story too.

Great read. I loved it. I gave it 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 it was just that good.
