PNR Review: Born of Fire (The League, Book 2) [Mass Market Paperback]

I've finished "Born of Fire" the 2nd book in her League series by Sherrilyn Kenyon.

Product Description

In a universe where assassins make the law, everyone lives in fear — except for Syn. Born of an illicit scandal that once rocked a dynasty, he always knew how to survive on the bloodthirsty streets. But that was then, and the future is now.
Syn was raised as a tech-thief until his livelihood uncovered a truth that could end his life. He tried to destroy the evidence, and has been on the run ever since. Now trained as an assassin, he allows no one to threaten him. Ever. He is the darkness that swallows his enemies whole.

Shahara Dagan is the best bounty hunter in the universe. When Syn comes back on the radar, she’s the only one who can bring him to justice. There’s only one problem: Syn is a close family friend who’s helped out the Dagans countless times. But if she saves him, both of their lives will be on the line. Is Syn’s protection worth the risk? The only hope Shahara has is to find the evidence he buried long ago. Now it’s kill or be killed — and they, the predators, have just become the hunted.

My Review:

Shahara Dagan is one of the best bounty hunters and she has accepted an assignment to bring in C.I. Syn to pay off her sister Tessa's medical bill.

Syn (aka Sheridan Digger Wade) is a trained assassin and has been on the run since he has discovered a truth that someone is determined to keep a secret.  Everyone believes he will be exactly like is father Irdian Wade a convicted killer.  He is surprised when he catches Shahara in his home and they engage in a fight which he subdues her.  They come to an agreement that she would cancel her contract to bring him in and they both go on their way.  But she betrays Sin and he is captured and tortured to an inch of his life.  When Shahara hears that Syn has been helping her brother Caillen and sister she realizes she has made a mistake.  She devises a way to break him out of jail and now both on the run.

I really loved Syn's character because even though he is an assassin he has a heart of gold and he helps people in need and really cares for family and friends.

Shahara on the other hand I didn't really like her character that much but I do admire that she learned skills how to take care of herself and took revenge on the person who hurt her.  I hated that she betrayed Syn without learning all the facts and delivered him to the enemies.
