Killer Looks (Assassins in Love Prequel) by Tawna Fenske
ABOUT THE BOOK
They’re hitmen. Trained assassins. If they nail this job, there’s a payoff. Possibly cookies.
But first, the bad stuff. Dante’s done with hitman life, but there’s one last job to do. A favor to the Duke of Dovlano targeting brutal gun runners. Dante calls on comrades, Matteo—brilliant, brooding, lethal—and charming Sebastian “The Dentist” LaDouceur. Each has skills he’s honed to take out threats at all costs. They’ve also got soft spots for family, lost loves, baby farm animals, and iambic pentameter.
But when the job falls apart, their carefully laid plans go up in smoke. Can three killers with a conscience stick together, or is it every man for himself?
I am delighted to be a part of the blog tour for the Assassins in Love series. If the prequel is this good, I can’t wait to read more.
Three hitmen on a job. The sniper, the dentist, and the computer geek. Their target is a warlord attempting to purchase illegal weapons, but everything just went to hell.
When the job’s done, I’ll buy us all some fucking cookies.” “Culinary motivation.” Sebastian laughs. “Is that in the assassin training manual?”
This fast-paced novella is the beginning of a wonderful friendship between me and three hot assassins. Dante, Sebastian, and Matteo make a very lethal and intriguing team which I plan to explore further. Dante is the serious one. The animal lover. The weapons expert. Is he ready to retire and settle down in the country? Sebastian is the charming one. The jokester. An actual dentist. A military-trained warrior. Will he be able to save his dad before it’s too late? Matteo is a whiz with a laptop. A killer knife thrower. The mysterious one. On the run from the cops. Has he finally been caught and on his way to prison? I can’t wait to find out their fates in the upcoming series.
Let’s not forget the killer delivery girl, the dirty cop, and the people after Sebastian’s dad that just made this series even more intriguing.
This short action-packed story set with humor and intrigue peels back the layers of three complex killers with internal struggles about their future, women, and family.
I am happy to recommend this gripping start to a promising series filled with hot males, romantic interests, and exciting page-turning suspense.
Thank you to Ms. Fenske for giving me the opportunity to read this book with no expectation of a positive review.
