Review: A Spy to Die For - Kris DeLake

Agent: Skylight
Profile: Seasoned Assassin Guild Super-Sleuth. Talented enough that she can write her own rules. 
Budget: Unlimited.

Agent: Jack
Profile: Main investigator for the loosely federated Rover Assassins. Guided by a strict moral code, fierce loyalty, and a sense of duty.

On opposite sides of a high-stakes game, lust lures two spies together in a passionate encounter. Little do they know that the heat of the moment would bind them, turning their worlds upside down. Hunted by deadly assassins, can the pair and their love withstand the onslaught?

Mass Market Paperback, 384 pages, Published July 2nd 2013 by Sourcebooks Casablanca, Assassins Guild #2, Science-fiction /romantic suspenseFor review

My thoughts:
I am jumping straight in. Ok girl eats at a shady burger joint, in comes hot guy. Girl is a bit lonely, she is a spy after all without any friends. Girl and boy ends up in bed. Boy is a spy too from another organization. Soon boy and girl are running and falling in love and lust. Now that is what this book is about.

Sky is a bad (that means she sucked at it) assassin who turned spy. Jack is good at finding things so he turned spy too. Set in a distant future where assassins are for hire and nothing wrong with that. Which makes this into a sci-fi romantic suspense story. If you are not into sci-fi then do not worry, you can take a few ships and sonic showers. If you like sci-fi then good, you will get some romance too thrown in. And of course the suspense part as something fishy is going on and someone is unhappy. Which means run you fools!

It was interesting to see them fall cos they fitted each other well but Sky had her issues. A lone wolf. While Jack, oh I do like when I guy falls first.

It made me wonder about book 1 too, sounds quite interesting too.

Conclusion
A spy novel set in space and a promise of passion.

Cover
Nice

  3. So I'm guessing if this is book 2 and you haven't read book 1, that book 1 features a different couple? Love series like this, sometimes I like jumping into the middle and finding whichever couple interests me most rather than simply starting from the beginning:)
