{Review} The Accidental Assassin by Nichole Chase

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?

This book was sexy, fast paced, dangerous, and there were still some questions left to ponder by the very end, which leaves you wanting more. 

The book starts off really slow and then it gets interesting when Ava, literally, runs into a badass assassin in her complex. After that, it is like a world wind of crazy town and on the run badassery that has your blood pumping and trying to skip to the end to see where everything is going and who is going to survive.  

I really enjoyed Ava, even though she got on my nerves at times, she was still interesting and she had the sarcastic humor that made me smile more than once. She took everything in stride and never really let what was happening effect her very much. Plus, she knew how to handle a gun and didn't seem to mind doing what she had to do. 

I really LOVED Owen. His badass skills and sharp wit had me trembling from head to toe. I wanted to rip is clothes off one minute and turn around and run like hell away from him, the next. He was cocky, skilled, and damn sexy! A very dangerous combination but it is good to have when you are running for your life... literally!

I also loved the secondary characters, they added a lot to the story, especially when everyone started working together. That is when the humor really started and when I wasn't trying to figure out WTF was going on, I was laughing my ass off. 

PLUS, the sex... AHHHHH... the sex was HOT!! 


I wasn't sure if I was fanning my face or my vagina more, glancing around to make sure nobody could read over my shoulder to see how very, very dirty things were getting... 

Overall, it was a good story, I just wish there was more to it, so I give this first book a

 4 "I need Owen between my legs" Stars!!!
