One Kick by Chelsea Cain

Kick Lannigan is one bad-ass young woman. She can throw stars, shoot any gun out there, climb walls, pick locks, and kick to kill. She has to protect herself, because years ago she couldn't when she was kidnapped by a child pornographer. She spent five years with Mel and his wife, and she hasn't recovered. But she's trying. When a sexy, rich, connected man wants her to help him solve recent child abductions, she jumps at the chance, even if she doesn't know much about him.
This is published YA, but the character is 21.  Good example of New Adult!

Have to admit that I wasn't thrilled with her relationship with Bishop--it didn't match with her character. But I loved the nonstop action and how Kick tried so hard to save kids, even if it meant dredging up her own nightmares. Scary to think what these "saved" kids deal with as they grow up.
