Banker Katie James has a serious thing for romance novels. She’d almost rather settle for a fictional boyfriend than risk her heart on a flesh-and-blood man. Besides, the only real guy she’s remotely interested in is her rich, unattainable client, the mysterious Cooper Maxwell.
Looking less like the ultra-conservative man she knows and more like a drop-dead sexy character from one of her books, Cooper crashes Katie’s 29th birthday party. But one too many drinks lands Katie in uncharted territory… Cooper’s bedroom!
Drunk on love, Katie dives headfirst into the relationship only to discover that Cooper is keeping secrets… dangerous ones. As if things couldn’t get worse, her meddling mother makes a surprise visit, digging up a whole new set of problems.
Who would have guessed having an assassin for a boyfriend would be the least of her worries?
This book was a serious trip. There are so many plot twists, and they’re mildly terrifying while also being absolutely hilarious. I’d never really read a suspense book before, and by the time I started reading it, I’d forgotten what the blurb said.
I loved Katie’s character-she’s a book nerd. Who of us isn’t?!? Enter hot dude with money; I mean where can you go wrong? Oh, he’s an assassin???? WHY. DOES. THIS. HAPPEN. Jokes on us, though. Keep reading. Katie and Cooper make a terrific couple.
There is a LOT of humor in this one, combined with some serious suspense and thriller aspects. This book would make THE PERFECT movie. I hope word of this book spreads to some hot-shot producer and makes it on the big screen because it would become a cult classic.
I believe there’s something in this book for everyone, honestly. There are steamy scenes, romantic scenes, funny scenes, scary scenes, and probably more that I can’t come up with right now. I vote put this one on your to-read on Goodreads! It was a genuine pleasure to read. Happy reading and let me know in the comments what you thought. 🙂
