The Accidental Assassin
Ava McKenzie is a creature of habit. Life is passing her by and she has nothing to show for it. She’s had the same job since she started college, she orders the same dish every time she goes to her favorite restaurant, and only reads books from authors she knows. There is nothing new or surprising in her life… until her best friend marries a man from London. When her newlywed friend asks her to house-sit while she honeymoons, Ava jumps at the chance. She thinks this could be the very thing she needs to shake up her life. Ava throws herself head first into her new lifestyle; she wants to try everything, go everywhere, and never get stuck in a rut again. Of course, offing a man in a car garage hadn’t been one of the things on her list to try.

Owen Walker spends every day in a new place with a new case. As one of the most renowned assassins in the world, he has his choice of marks—and he’s never failed in a mission. When a new hit takes him back to his hometown, he looks forward to spending time somewhere familiar. What he isn’t expecting is to help an attractive, confused American woman find out how she’s ended up on a hit man’s list.

As Ava and Owen dodge bullets, will they be able to escape their undeniable attraction to each other? Or will all of that chemistry blow up in a shower of hot and dangerous sparks?

Cold air curled over the skin of my thigh and I snuggled closer to the heat next to me. A soft snore invaded my dreams and I grunted in annoyance. The warm pillow under my head moved, turning me over so I was on my back and immediately yanking me out of my dreams. As my eyes adjusted to the early morning light that poured in around the curtains, Owen rolled into me.
“What the—?” I started to push him away, but his hands closed on my wrists and lifted them above my head.
“It’s been a long time since I woke up next to someone.” His voice sent goosebumps over my skin and I froze. One of his legs rested between mine and every movement made it deliciously clear how much he enjoyed having a bedmate. “I’m not used to it.”
“Wh-why is that?” His lips were so close to mine I couldn’t focus on anything else. Flashes of our kiss from the night before ran through my mind.
“Trust.” He leaned a little closer, his lips almost touching mine. “Can’t sleep next to someone who might kill you.”
“That would be difficult.” I licked my lips and tried to calm my racing heart.
“But not with you, love.” He let go of one of my wrists to run a finger along my jaw. “You’re not going to kill me in my sleep.”
“How can you be so sure?”
“It’s in your eyes.” His eyes dipped down to my lips. “The eyes never lie.”
I waited for his kiss, waited for the heat that his fingertips promised.

She was heaven and I was headed for the darkest pits of hell. If this was my only chance for bliss I was going to savor it before the angels kicked me out.
The fall was going to hurt and I was going to make sure it was worth it.

Get ready for another round of rambling by yours truly. When I love a book so much, I tend to do that. I mentioned last year in my end of the year book survey that THE ACCIDENTAL ASSASSIN was one book I was looking forward to most this year. It should have been out sooner, but life got in the way for Chase, pushing back its release. Hey it happens. But that saying, "Good things come to those who wait", has never been truer. I gotta tell you, it was soooo worth the wait. Wouldn't you rather a book be done right, than pushed out the door without a second thought? Yeah me too! So. Worth. The. Wait.

I think one of the things I loved most about this book was the characters. Especially Owen. I think it was his transformation throughout. Well, I really cannot say that, because how he ended up in the end was not far from where he started out. He really didn't change...it was more his true self just came out. I loved that about him. He wasn't one of those cocky, arrogant guys that drives you nuts because they keep pushing the girl away. Nope, he actually would embrace his feelings for Ava and pull her closer. *Swoon*

Ava was a fun, adorable character as well. She is all sweet and innocent looking, but with the mouth of a sailor. I absolutely loved her. She kept the hilarious dialogue going at times, which I thought fit perfectly into the story. Those scenes were just right to break up the heavy that tried to creep its way in.

The story itself was what had me hooked from the beginning. It was like I was in a trance and never wanted to put the book down. I would have happily picked it up every spare moment I had and sadly put it down when I had to be a mom and wife. (Sometimes being a parent is so overrated, am I right?)

Could I see more coming from just this one book? Absolutely. Chase seriously needs to think about making this a series if she isn't already. THE ACCIDENTAL ASSASSIN had everything I could ever want in a book: glorious, hilarious, swoon worthy dialogue...lots of action packed,-sit at the edge of your seat,-bite your nails off moments, and unbelievably hot scenes with a sexy, yummy assassin. Yep, being an assassin never sounded so good.

So drop whatever it is you have your hands on at the moment...well, at least come Dec 4th, and pick up this book. Read. Devour. Love. New Adult fiction has never been so swoony...or deadly. Thank you Chase for making this one of my top reads of 2014!

  1. Some kind of long distance firearm. All the better to make my escape.

  2. Tough question. I don't really have an answer because, in my wildest dreams, I can't imagine killing people for a living!!

  3. I could not kill for a living.
