Overview

Island Chaptal--nerdy IT engineer by day, romance novel junkie by night--just walked into her messy New York apartment to find Mr. Right waiting for her. No, wait...Mr. Clean.

A gentleman professional killer with a bad case of OCD and zero tolerance for unsorted laundry, March isn't there to kill her...yet. He wants the diamond her late mother stole for a sinister criminal organization. Island agrees to help him find it, facing the kind of adversaries who dismember first and ask questions later. Good thing she's got March to show her the ropes. And the guns. And the knives.

The buttoned-up Island is soon having a blast racing from Paris to Tokyo following the clues in her mother's will, and for the first time, she's ready to get close to someone. But falling for a hit man may be the very definition of loving dangerously.

Spotless marks the beginning of Island and March's ongoing adventures.

Editorial Reviews

Gitte -
"Spotless is a brilliantly written story with a difference. It crosses a few genres and brings something completely new to the table. It's laugh-out-loud funny; it's sweet and strangely romantic but in quite a unique way."
Whiskey in the Jar
If you're in the mood for a jocular bit off center suspense with a dash of romance involving shady world organizations, the shady men and women who work for them, a broody caring OCD hitman, and a plucky heroine lost in the mix and falling love, then you must give this book a try.

This book blew me out of the water! There are so many things I can say about it but I don't even know where to begin. I downloaded it on a whim and ended up staying up the entire night because I couldn't put it down. The closest thing I can think of to compare it to is the movie Red with Bruce Willis. Monk is very gifted writer who puts her own spin on a hitman romance.

"The hilarious chapter headers--which I enjoyed as much as the rest of the book--set the tone of the book as one of over-the-top camp and a loving spoof of and homage to romantic suspense novels."
Rabia Tanveer
"The characters were beautifully done; they are fully developed; they make you laugh with them and appreciate their wit and charm. A truly 5 star novel that deserves tons of attention."

This book blew me out of the water! There are so many things I can say about it but I don’t even know where to begin. I downloaded it on a whim and ended up staying up the entire night because I couldn’t put it down. The closest thing I can think of to compare it to is the movie Red with Bruce Willis. Monk is very gifted writer who puts her own spin on a hitman romance. First, I must say that I absolutely love every character in this book no matter how big or small. Island, the lead female protagonist, is hilarious but also realistic! I found myself relating to her on multiple occasions. March, the male lead opposite of her, was enigmatic with just the right amount of charm. I felt like each character was well developed regardless of their role. I became so invested in the story, I think I actually cried at one point. While the overall plot wasn’t so complicated that I was blindsided, it was satisfying to watch everything fall into place. The only real issue I had with the novel was that sometimes the author would be describing something and I had no idea to what she was referring to. I would have to return to a couple paragraphs previous to understand what I was supposed to be currently reading. Spoiler though, the ending is a bit of a cliffhanger. I am so angry that this book isn’t even out yet because I can’t wait for book two. Spotless is one of the novels that digs itself inside you and makes you want so much more. I feel that right now, no book can possibly compare and I will be stuck in reading limbo until a book half as worthy catches my eye. ❧ Arec

Reviewed by Rabia Tanveer for Readers' Favorite Spotless by Camilla Monk is an awesome love story that will actually make a great rom-com one day. The story follows a woman named Island Chaptal. She is a romance novel enthusiast and a boring IT professional. She may seem like a stiff upper crust woman, but she is a warm blooded woman who is waiting for her Mr. Right ... yet when she actually comes across him, he is not someone she anticipated. He is a gentleman, but he is also after something. He wants the diamond that was her grandmother’s and he also wants her house … clean? Yup, he is a neat freak and together Island and March will try to trace the diamond, and she has to do all that while they fight off people who are not shy of killing and getting what they want. They don’t care if Island is innocent. She and March are going to different places, and maybe along the way they fall in love? Steam up the room and ignite the fire? Well, maybe. You will have to read it to find out. What can I say? I’m a sucker for a great romance. This novel is clean (almost, there are some steamy scenes that I won’t trade for nothing), with a hero that is swoonworthy, and a heroine that is a little too straight and falls head over heels in love with this amazing man. The characters were beautifully done, they are fully developed, they make you laugh with them and appreciate their wit and charm. A truly 5 star novel that needs tons of attention.

I can't recommend this book enough!! I loved this book, it surprised me a lot. It was so funny at times and I swear I could and will continue reading this series just to get back into Island's head. That girl is hilarious. If you want to read a good action/adventure/suspense story with a little romance and a lot of humor in the mix this story is for you!
