Week 22 Review: Before the Dawn

From Goodreads:
The Killer Instinct series from New York Times bestselling author Cynthia Eden continues as an FBI profiler tracks a case that resurrects ghosts from his past

Ex-SEAL Tucker Frost knows that the world is full of evil. He saw it in the face of his own brother, Mason Frost, a cold, methodical, sadistic killer. A killer Tucker put down with his own hands in order to save Mason's final victim—Dawn Alexander, the only girl who got away from the infamous "Iceman." 

It's Tucker's up close and personal experience with evil that's made him perfect for Samantha Dark's experimental profiling division in the FBI. Samantha wants agents who have personal ties with killers, who have unique insights into the minds of monsters. And when women start turning up murdered with the same MO used by the Iceman, Tucker is sent back to Louisiana to investigate. 

The last person he expects to see is his ex-lover, Dawn. Ten full years have passed since the night that Tucker faced down his brother…and since he last saw Dawn. But the dark need still burns just as hot between Tucker and Dawn. As they grapple with a desire that never died, they must also face the shared shadow from their pasts. Both Tucker and Dawn have the same question—has Mason Frost come back from the dead to hunt again? And this time, will he succeed in killing the victim who got away?

My Review:
This book was really fantastic! I really hope that we get more books in this series, because yeah, these characters are fantastic, and this world with the group of people who were connected intensely with serial killers and now work to catch them!

We briefly met Tucker in the last book. And yeah, it was great to get his POV in this book, mixed with Dawn's. They had a really great relationship, until his brother kidnaps and tortures her, and Tucker kills him to protect her. And yeah, that complicated things!

The mystery was personal to Tucker and Dawn, since the killer was basically continuing the Iceman's work, either the original, or a new killer. So there was that component of investigating the case. After all, that's the reason why this unit was created!

Really enjoyed watching Tucker and Dawn together, given their past, and their chemistry together. Given that her life is threatened, well, yeah, that intensifies things. Loved how it all came together and they beat the bad guy!

This book was just so great, and yeah, I really hope for a 3rd book!
