V is for vengeance . . .
Private investigator Valentine Shepherd plays by one set of rules: hers. She's haunted by dark, cryptic visions of the future, not to mention an aching hole in her chest where her heart---and the love of her life, Max Carressa---used to be. But when Val's search for a missing woman leads to her own night of terror, the only thing on Val's mind is revenge.
In the months since Val walked away from their relationship, Max has tried to move on. Yet, when she asks for his help tracking down her attacker, he knows resistance is futile; he'll do anything for Val. Even sacrifice himself to save her.
Retribution is book 2 in the Valentine Shepard series and picks up about a few months after Vengeance ends. Val and Max have broken up and it appears that Max has moved on. Val is juggling cases when one of them pulls her deep enough that she asks for help from her exes. (Yes that is supposed to be plural.)
As in the previous book, there is a lot of action, violence, and sex. Although there is more focus on the world building and plot in Retribution and less focus on the sex. Shana Figueroa isn’t afraid to kill characters off and I want to call her the Shonda Rhimes of the book world. Seriously, there are characters who feel very important to the story and then WHAM! they are dead and gone. This series is seriously addicting and I can’t get enough of these characters!
