Otherworld Assassins, #2

New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter's pulse-pounding paranormal series continues with an electrifying story about the ultimate warrior and his prize: a beautiful woman he will do anything to possess.

Corbin Blue is a man of many talents. One of the most powerful otherworlders ever born, he is wealthy, a professional football star, and a legend in the bedroom. But only a select few know he is also a black ops agent...and there is no better killer. When he and his crew are attacked and separated, he’s forced to turn to his boss’s daughter for help―a woman with even more secrets than Blue.

Evangeline Black has always been wary, guarded. No man has ever breeched her walls. Until Blue. He has never been denied something he wants, and now, he’s decided he wants her. As he sweeps her into his double life of seduction, intrigue, and danger, he helps her see beyond the darkness of her past. But as an enemy closes in, Blue will have to let Evie go to keep her safe—even though he'd rather die than live without her…

My Thoughts

Gena Showalter is an amazing author and I could not wait to get my hands on her newest novel "Black and Blue", I was not disappointed. There was no lag in this book it was a fast paced and action packed book of awesome!

I also really love her characters and the biggest reason for this is that they are so real. They are not saints or all evil they are human. They have faults, desires, dreams and most of all their not perfect, but the are real and that's what makes them all the more fascinating to me.

Corbin is a man who knows what he wants and knows how to get it. He was a law onto himself and very fun to read about. Corbin is also pretty stubborn so it was fun to see him interact with Evangeline and see her put him in his place.

Evangeline was also a very strong woman who didn't back down from a fight. Seeing both of these Strong characters battle it out was so much fun! I also really liked her gentle side and how even as tough as she was she was still caring and kind.

This story is a blast from beginning to end and you will not want to miss out on Corbin and Evangeline's story!
