He finds the unfindable, but she’s terribly good at hiding …
Penny Dunsworth is dead.
Well, she should be—a piece of her certainly is. The broken girl she once was no longer exists. Now a trained assassin for The League, she’s turned into the worst nightmare for the monsters who once haunted her every waking moment. She has to be … it’s the only way to keep her past safe. That is if she can keep it from catching up.
Luca Puzza is chasing a ghost.
He’s never once been able to catch her in the five years that he spent searching. Until now. The promise he made to find the girl who disappeared without a trace turned into an obsession that changed his life. But the woman he was looking for is only a shadow of who he finds. She’s dangerous … for his heart and life, and so are the secrets she’s protecting.
One can only play with monsters for so long before they start to notice you’re not the same. In this world, predators can just as easily become prey.
Except she stopped being a victim long ago.
And it’s time for this to end.

At last Penny’s story is finally here and I couldn’t be more thrilled to read it. I have been curious about her character ever since I’ve read about her in one of Nazio and Ros’ stories.
I loved how Bethany-Kris has artfully depicted her struggles and her trauma. It felt real and visceral. But what I loved most about Penny’s character is that she didn’t feel like a victim. She was a survivor. Her story is more than just about revenge and I’m excited to read more about it in the next two books.
But of course, I wouldn’t end this post without mentioning the relentless Luca. I loved his tenacity and dedication for finding the broken teenage girl for half a decade. If that’s not love than I don’t know what else you can call it.
One Breath After Another couldn’t come soon enough. And of course, I’ll be on the lookout to devour the next book in the series!
