~Review: Razor's Traitorous Heart (The Alliance #2) by S.E. Smith~

Kali Parks is a shadow in the war between two factions that are fighting to gain control of Chicago. Born and raised on the streets, she stands as a silent sentinel at her brother’s side as he battles to gain control. She will do whatever it takes to bring peace to those she has pledged her life to protect, including fighting against the creatures that came to their world almost six years before.

Razor, a councilman for the Alliance, has been sent to oversee the remaining Trivator troops on Earth and make sure the transition for the induction of Earth into the Alliance goes smoothly. He is the one the Alliance calls when they have a situation that needs to be resolved once and for all. His reputation for dealing with difficult rebels is renowned. He asks no questions and takes no prisoners. His job is to eliminate all threats to the Alliance.

He finds himself torn between duty and something he is unfamiliar with, his heart. When a shadow warrior saves his life and disappears, he discovers his world is no longer as cut and dry as he thought. The more he learns, the more he discovers he is not immune to the warrior’s passionate desire to fight to protect her people.

Forced by duty to settle the conflict, he must decide between the Alliance and his own desire to claim the unwilling warrior. When the conflict escalates, he does the only thing he can; he makes a pact with one of the factions in exchange for a prize that will surely cause a battle of a different kind – the one for his traitorous heart.

Will he be able to claim her before she escapes from him again? Or worse, will she sacrifice her life to protect those she loves before he can?

Overall Rating:  5 Rockin’ ★★★★

Razor had been sent to Earth as the final resort to bring the rebellion under control.  As a High Chancellor for the Alliance it is his duty to take care of things that need to be done quickly and efficiently.  His methods are often brutal but at the same time he is fair when dealing with the hold outs and he insures that justice is done.  He does not negotiate! Since coming to Earth, he has quickly eliminated all but one of the rebellion's strong holds.  The Chicago resistance is divided into two fractions that are waging war against each other.  Razor is on a tour of the area when he is shot out of the sky by a rocket.  He is rescued by a woman like none other he has ever seen. She gets him out of the rubble, tends his wounds, gets help for him and then disappears.  Razor knows that this woman is his Amate, his life mate
Kali Parks is part of the resistance that is fighting against the Alliance and the takeover of the northern resistance.   She fights at her brother’s side and her jobs are to act as his personal guard and protector.   Her brother is the leader of one of the two fractions that control Chicago and has yet to surrender to Alliance.  After she rescues Razor from the attack, Kali cannot get the alien out of her mind.  The reaction she had to the big guy is not normal for her!  She has avoided every involvement with males since the invasion and had promised herself to focus only on protecting her brother and her people.   However, that does not stop her from returning to the place where she saved her alien.  Call it a feeling but she knew that he had been watching her and would be there.  When Kali is wounded, Razor returns with her to his temporary base and claims her as his.  Will Kali and Razor survive the war that is raging around them?  Is there treachery involved? Can Kali accept him as her forever mate? Get this book and find out, you will not be disappointed by the ending! ~TSRBR

Would I recommend this book: Yes! This is the second book in Ms. Smith’s Alliance Series and it is a must read.  I love the way she takes two different races and builds strong relationships that can overcome any obstacles. Love according to Ms. Smith’s books does not see race, color or ethnicity.  Only love!

Would I read other books by this author: Yes! I look forward to reading any book that Ms. Smith publishes.  She is one of my favorite all time authors and I have read all of her published books, some of them more than one time!
