I loved the development of the characters. I read other stories by this author and she never disappoints. Lots of action with just enough romance. I just found a new series to read.

This book made me laugh out loud. While this book deals with some serious subjects like spousal abuse, stalking, drugs and assassination it does it tongue in cheek with a true sense of humor. This book answers the question of what happens when an assassin falls in love with the single mother next door. Read it and I promise you too will fall for the Assassin Next Door.

Humor, intrigue, and hot bad/good guys. A good read.

This was one of those books I had trouble picking up not setting down. Hard to determine if this book was meant to be romance, comedy, mystery or something entirely different. At any rate I will not be reading any additional books by this author.

Great plot with characters that you will feel connected to and where you want them to get their own story. Ms. Langlias has done it again. Bravo!

Assassin Next Door by Eve Langlais Romance and suspense. Hugely entertaining. When the hero is introduced with "I like shadows", you may expect dark and moody. Not this assassin. He loves his job. He is not a good guy. He's an assassin! And you can't help but like him. He's cheerful and quickly enamored with the little girl. The heroine is struggling to stand alone and support herself. She is smart and determined. And she certainly doesn't believe Calvin when he tells her truthfully that he is an assassin. It's a fast, compelling read with humor and grit. And in the last third, some spicy love-making. Wink. Excerpt: “You have to be firm with them. “Go back to your place.” He’d shooed the little girl. It seemed the most understandable gesture, and yet she blinked at him. “You can’t stand there.” He’d pointed at her house. “Go find your parents and insist they watch you more closely.” The little tyke then smiled. A gap-toothed brilliant thing that could have blinded a weaker man. She blinked long lashes and lisped, “Will you take me to my mommy?” “Uh…” She dipped her chin, and her eyelids fluttered. Little freckles across her nose crinkled. “Please.” Good God. The child was possessed by a dark force. Surely, she possessed some kind of insidious evil because Calvin had held out his hand and didn’t flinch when her sticky palm slid into his. Still under her dark spell, Calvin had said, “Come with me. I’ll take you home.” Call a f**ing priest! And that was how he’d ended up on a concrete porch, looming over a tiny woman as she cried.” Excerpt From: Langlais, Eve. “Assassin Next Door.”

What a great book! Ms. Langlais takes a diversion from the paranormal and alien genres into contemporary romance, and hits it out of the park! Throw away all the cheesy story lines, and everything you think you know about bad boys. This story drops us into an untenable situation for Lily, as she tries to make a new life for herself and her daughter. Of all the houses in all the neighborhoods around the country, she lands smack next door to a killer-for-hire. Will he make things better or worse for her? This story is very down to earth, and I felt like this could happen just down the street to someone I know. It’s relatable, which is so essential to a gripping story, and so different from a lot of the other books out there where you think “this couldn’t happen in the real world”. The characters have flaws, but are just trying to live their lives and find their way forward. They don’t pretend to be something they aren’t, but still keep their secrets close. Lily is fleeing with her daughter from an abusive ex-husband who won’t let go. Calvin is an assassin working for the highest bidder. Sparks and insults fly when they first meet, but the attraction is unmistakable. As their relationship threatens to become something more than just neighborly, Lily tries to save Calvin from her ex, so she fights the allure and pushes him away. Calvin has never been ruled by his emotions, but finds himself drawn to his beautiful neighbor and her daughter. A ready-made family never entered his mind before, but now things have changed. The more she pushes him away, the more he wants to be her knight in shining armor. Will they be able to escape the nightmares that have been haunting her? Will he be able to convince her that he is the man for her? Will her ex ruin everything? Whose secrets are worse, and what will happen when those secrets collide? Fireworks for sure, but only time will tell if they can survive the explosion.

4 stars as it was humorous and fast. Didn’t leave you hanging or bored waiting for something to happen. Sex scenes a little long for my taste but well done. Overall a good read for a lazy Friday afternoon.

Eve never dissapoints with her humor and wit. While this is a little different from other of her series, it's still a good read and wicked fun.
