Assassins in Love by Kris DeLake EARLY REVIEW

Assassins in love by Kris DeLake (Assassins Guild #1)

Egalley thanks to Sourcebook Casablanca


Synopsis from Goodreads
Two brilliant assassins in a fascinating futuristic world need each other to finish one more job before calling it quits in the highly respected killing business. But it’s more of a challenge than either expected. A series of mishaps plagues their every move, and if it’s not Misha helping Rikki with a bungled getaway, then it’s Rikki helping Misha to hide some damning evidence. They can’t seem to get anything right… except for the way they feel about each other.

Release date: US 1st March 2012 / UK 1st April 2012

We are talking about Kristine Kathryn Rusch here using a pen name to write racy sci-fi romances, folks! Of course the book is buckets of fun since the very first moment when Rikki tries to get rid of the body in space...



This is a short, entertaining read similar to Mr. & Mrs. Smith. In this world assassins are respected professionals and not liable for the kills, their clients are. The laws vary from planet to planet, but Rikki prefers to act as an independent instead of belonging to The Assassins Guild and paying a hefty yearly membership fee.


However, she annoyed one of the best Guild Assassins Mikhail (Misha) who gets blamed for quite a few of her kills. He thinks she is messy and inexperienced and wants to teach her a lesson...


Oh boy, he is in for a hell of a surprise!


They are both tricky, and sneaky and paranoid, but despite a very bumpy road they manage to fall over heels for each other and get involved in a big conspiracy, where only mutual trust will keep them both alive.


Fun, easy, pretty short. Perfect mindless holiday read. Very much recommended.

Лёгкая, смешная книга наподобие Мистера и Миссис Смит, только в космосе. 


Далёкое будущее, где ассассин - это уважаемая, легитимная профессия. За убийство по закону отвечает не ассассин, а его клиент, если того поймают.


Рикки предпочитает работать независимо и держится подальше от Гильдии Ассассинов, членство в которой вынуждает тебя платить здоровый годовой взнос. Книга цепляет с самого начала когда Рикки пытается избавится от тела на космическом лайнере, пока на помощь ей не приходит Миша.


Миша (он же Михаил) - один из лучших Ассассинов Гильдии, которого достало, что за некоторые из убийств Рикки винят его. Он считает, что она работает грязно и неумело, хочет преподать ей урок и завербовать в Гильдию.


Ну да, мальчика ждёт ба-альшой сюрприз!


И Рикки и Миша оба хитрющие, ловкие мошенники и параноики, однако несмотря на постоянные схватки и недоверие друг другу они всё же умудряются друг в друга влюбиться и попасть прям в гущу заговора с целью убить Мастера Гильдии. Теперь им быстренько придётся научиться доверять друг другу и работать вместе, чтобы остановить убийство, выжить и найти виновных.


Книга короткая, увлекательная и простая. Прекрасно подходит под отпускное настроение. 

Крис ДеЛэйк - это псевдоним Кристин Кэтрин Раш, которая широко известна в мире научной фантастики.


8/10

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
