Review: Tangled Threads by Jennifer Estep

I’d rather face a dozen lethal assassins any night than deal with something as tricky, convoluted, and fragile as my feelings.
But here I am. Gin Blanco, the semi-retired assassin known as the Spider. Hovering outside sexy businessman Owen Grayson’s front door like a nervous teenage girl. One thing I like about Owen: he doesn’t shy away from my past—or my present. And right now I have a bull’s-eye on my forehead.
Cold-blooded Fire elemental Mab Monroe has hired one of the smartest assassins in the business to trap me. Elektra LaFleur is skilled and efficient, with deadly electrical elemental magic as potent as my own Ice and Stone powers. Which means there’s a fifty-fifty chance one of us won’t survive this battle. I intend to kill LaFleur—or die trying—because Mab wants the assassin to take out my baby sister, Detective Bria Coolidge, too.
The only problem is, Bria has no idea I’m her long-lost sibling . . . or that I’m the murderer she’s been chasing through Ashland for weeks. And what Bria doesn’t know just might get us both dead. . .

I’m loving this series and Gin is always in the middle of something dangerous and deadly, but what I loved in this book, besides her revenge against Mab, is the fact she finally accepted help from the family and found some time for awesome Owen. I just love him and how he just wants to be with her, without judging and running for the hills.
But this book had a bunch of new information’s and it feels like it ended too fast. Gin is picking Mab’s men and silently destroying her army, but Mab is the best at being bad and she paid another assassin to end with this nonsense.
Just loved seeing this deadly side of Mab and how much is bothering her what Gin is doing. Plus there’s more evil than ever, because La Fleur, the other assassin, is also an elemental and she’s loves the thrill of a new death.
But on the sidelines we have Gin struggling to talk with Bria and is adorable the way she, Gin-assassin, doesn’t know what to do. I just loved the end and Christmas is one of my favorite times in books. Everything ends in a big party with lots of drinking.
