    THE BEST BOOK I VE READ ALL YEAR Wow, that s a pretty big statement to make, isn t it But if it s true, it s true Ms Castle took her characters and her storyline from Chance Assassin My Review Here, made themdamaged,fragmented,cracked, and then she doused them with evenof the peculiar and hilarious depravity that she alone can dispense Every page, every line, was pure entertainment DEPRAVED

her storyline from Chance Assassin My Review Here, made themdamaged,fragmented,cracked, and then she doused them with evenof the peculiar and hilarious depravity that she alone can dispense Every page, every line, was pure entertainment DEPRAVED IMMORAL DEBAUCHED OBSCENE DECADENT ROMANCE DYSFUNCTIONAL THE CHARACTERS Frank Poor, beautiful, guilty and sometimes clueless Frank It s all on his back Everything Maybe if he d get V on his back everything would be better already Because the guilt he felt was never over killing It was the lack of it, the remorselessness, which spoke of true evil Vincent V The most spoiled, conceited, outrageous brat in M M fiction, and he deserves every damned spanking he asks for That was what made Vincent so perfect His raison d tre He was feminine to the point of being non threatening, and masculine enough to prove Frank was homosexual after all Not to mention obscenely beautiful Casey Innocence incarnate Beautiful, sweet, gifted Throughout the book I wanted to protect him from anything dangerous or obscene, but he s surrounded by it constantly In book 1 I may have thought Casey simple Here he s alive, bright and fantastic He was a mere boy with a crush Hardly even handsome, with his silly long hair He was androgynous the way models had become, with an interestingthan attractive face, and a thin sexless body And he was an artist for fuck s sakes He probably didn t even have a criminal record Bella Barely five feet tall, bitchy, deadly and so damned funny I couldn t help but fall in love with her It takes a lot for me to fall for a female character these days, but I d be Bella s bitch any day She d cut me though But who cares, cus she d wrap me in mink, kiss my head and then kick me She applied lipstick as she walked, her Manolo Blahnik stiletto boots leaving holes in the snow like stab wounds THE STORY Vincent thinks we should kill all five of them He s bored Frank was also bored, but unlike Vincent, he had chosen retirement And that decision, along with the reasons behind it, continued to put a strain on their relationship.Full of snappy, self aware immorality.Frank and Vincent have retired to the French countryside to live out their days as normal citizens Aww, can you hear the birds singing in the trees and the dogs wagging their tales Well, you could if it weren t for Vincent shooting at raw meat nailed to the trees to stay in shape Fortunately for us they aren t normal, at all, and retired life won t suit them for long Casey, Frank s brother, his mother and stepdad have come to visit and.well never mind because that doesn t matter at all What does matter is that Casey meets the most debauched and coutur d female in existence Enter Bella, Frank s sister, dripping from head to toe in Versace and weapons, she is the rudest, foulest, meanest, most wonderful character I ve had the pleasure of falling for Yep, you heard me, I fell for the female lead Evenimpossible is the dubious and unique pairing of Casey and Bella For one minute I thought this het couple might steal the show and I was worried because this is MY gay romance dammit OH Yeah There is a huge, twisted mystery packed with murder, assassins, blood, death, sex and intrigue In fact there s so much going on in this story from every angle that it s going to work your head Most of this book reads like the exciting ending of other books The energy and wit run throughout Bring your thinking cap, cus Ms Castle is going to throw a lot your way THE WRITING First off you need to know that this book is written with alternating POV S which differs from Chance Assassin s first person, present tense writing This matters because it isn t just Vincent s thoughts that we need to see in this book For me, it didn t matter whether we were in V s, Frank s, Casey s or Bella s head, it was all great and I just wantedof each one, unlike when an author slips you into a POV that you just don t care about.Secondly, and maybeimportantly, is how much this author has improved her writing It s miles beyond her work in the first book Her already colorful characters are not only instantly memorable, but they re alsoendearing Endearing assassins you say Yes I do say Lastly, I m putting Nicole Castle on my quirky authors pedestal with my favorites, Douglas Adams and Jasper Fforde Her creation of outlandish assassins tearing at your heartstrings deserves no less I would like to thank Nicole Castle for providing me with an ARC Review Copy in exchange for my honest review Take a look at my Male Male

    SoI don t know Look, I loved the first one, even though it was disturbing, I really really liked it and I would recommend it.This one, sighI knew with the retirement that there would be issues between Frank and V, and I was prepared for that, prepared for them to not be what they once were or trying to figure out where to go from there, but what I was not prepared for was Bella.Bella is a selfish, immature, soul sucking witch, I spent the first fifty percent of the book hoping someone wou SoI don t know Look, I loved the first one, even though it was disturbing, I really really liked it and I would recommend it.This one, sighI knew with the retirement that there would be issues between Frank and V, and I was prepared for that, prepared for them to not be what they once were or trying to figure out where to go from there, but what I was not prepared for was Bella.Bella is a selfish, immature, soul sucking witch, I spent the first fifty percent of the book hoping someone would tie her to a chair, beat her within an inch of her life, make her watch while they broke the heels off her shoes and burned her clothes and then finally just fucking shoot her.So yeahBella was a bit of an issue for me And not just because she s so awful cuz let s face it, V is fucking psychotic , but not only was sheawful than the serial killers and psychopaths, she took away from my Frank and V time I wanted them and she was simply not compelling enough for me to have to get her perspective every other chapter.NowI love Casey I do But again, Bella is not complicated or intriguing, so even though I love Casey, there isn t enough love in the world to make up for Bella in the first half of that book.Now, I ve ranted The second half was great I was feeling it It took me weeks to get through the first 50% and I finished the second half today It wason point, it was my guys again and their psychotic, dysfunctional but totally addicting relationship and interactions, it was everything I wanted Somaybe you won t mind Bella and you ll have no problems.Overall 3 stars.Issues Bella, not enough V and FrankI think Ms Castle is a fantastic writer, she writes vivid, interesting and consistent characters I will be readingfrom her

    Leaving this unrated for now I thoroughly enjoyed the first book, and I really wanted to love this too So, am sad to say this was only disappointing to me I struggled heavily for the first half of the book I wanted wayaction, for some interesting things to actually happen But what really killed my remaining interest was how much page time the MF couple got in this book I liked their brief appearances in the first book, but here they seemed like different characters to me I just coul Leaving this unrated for now I thoroughly enjoyed the first book, and I really wanted to love this too So, am sad to say this was only disappointing to me I struggled heavily for the first half of the book I wanted wayaction, for some interesting things to actually happen But what really killed my remaining interest was how much page time the MF couple got in this book I liked their brief appearances in the first book, but here they seemed like different characters to me I just couldn t get into their POV chapters or the idea of them as a couple at all I was wholly uninterested in seeing their whole storyline play out, when I would have preferred that time spent on Vincent and Frank, or justaction In the end, I felt mostly bored for too long Sorry

    If Martin Scorsese and Quentin Tarantino got married and made a filthy mouthed word baby, I m almost certain it would come out looking like Les Recidivists, book two in the Chance Assassin series Les Rec scores another huge win for author Nicole Castle, as this installment reads something like a quirky family comedy if by comedy it means the quirky family exists in a perfectly balanced union between committing mass murder and trying to avoid being executed in the most heinous possible way Somet If Martin Scorsese and Quentin Tarantino got married and made a filthy mouthed word baby, I m almost certain it would come out looking like Les Recidivists, book two in the Chance Assassin series Les Rec scores another huge win for author Nicole Castle, as this installment reads something like a quirky family comedy if by comedy it means the quirky family exists in a perfectly balanced union between committing mass murder and trying to avoid being executed in the most heinous possible way Sometimes by each other Who knew death and dismemberment could be so much fun Not to mention fashionable.One of the things I wasn t expecting when I started reading Les Recidivists was the emergence of the side characters who were introduced briefly in Chance Assassin A Story of Love, Luck, and Murder There are parallel and intersecting storylines in this installment of the series that deliver the crazy in a fast paced, stylized, don t blink or you ll miss something someone getting shot, stabbed, blown up, beaned, eye gouged in a cosmetic incident, things like that way, and while I at first thought I was going to be disappointed by the author s decision to let those side characters hog the spotlight, I was wrong So very, very wrong to think it.This book is a continuation of the slightly slantways romance of now husbands Frank Sullivan Moreaux and Vincent Sullivan Moreaux, to be sure, but with Casey Evans and Bella Moncrief thrown into the romantic mix in quite possibly the most insane matchmaking scheme ever Frank and Vincent take on the added role of keepers and handlers in this murderous monkey cage of love Frank tries to keep order, V just wants to stir up trouble and kill people, and their matrimonial bliss is now under considerable strain brought on by their retirement from the assassination biz, as well as the residual effects of Vincent s injuries, injuries neither Frank nor Vincent can seem to quit blaming themselves for Guilt really doesn t make for a good threesome It also doesn t make for the kind of sex Vincent wants, because Frank is too busy treating V like he s going to shatter into a million little pieces at any moment Where s a little autoerotic asphyxiation when a guy needs it Then the plot thickens So, Casey and Bella they re Frank s surrogate brother and sister, how fun is that Casey, the pansexual, wide eyed, high hopes, everything is glitter and Technicolor glee, artist Casey And Bella, the fudge you, you fudgety fudging fudgewad, I ll blow your fudging head off but you better not get your brain on my shoes, assassin Bella Only she didn t say fudge See Scorsese Tarantino word baby I loved her Theirs is a union of sugarplums and smoking guns yes, there s M F sex in this one, for those of you who care , and watching these two fall in love was hysterical Really, it waslike watching my belovedly flake headed Casey repeatedly stick his tongue in a light socket, but then, miracle of miracles, the light socket decided not to fry his cranium.And then these two gave my heart all the feels it could feel It was not only unexpected but was also a lovely bonus to all the death and dismemberment.Nicole Castle is a masterful storyteller Just when you think Les Rec should be fined for disorderly conduct, everything gets wrapped up and strangled to within an inch of its perfect life, blissfully delivering Frank and Vincent the dynamic duo of mischief, mayhem, and madness back into the murder business, it would seem, which has left me with the hope that there will befoul mouthed word babies coming soon to a shallow grave near me.This author has written two books that have vaulted her onto my auto buy list They are laugh out loud funny one moment, mildly disturbing the next then the next thing you know, your heart is in your throat They both kept me turning page after page just to see which I d feel next, and I was never disappointed Other than when they ended

    I have to say that I m surprised by both Miss Castle, and myself when I read her work If anybody had told me before the Chance Assassin series that I would end up adoring two sociopathic murderers, I would just worry about them But, it s happened Unlike the first book, the sequel picks up at a point in Frank and V s relationship where not everything is perfect They couldn t be doing worse after retiring from the life of assassins, and to make their situationfun they end up having to de I have to say that I m surprised by both Miss Castle, and myself when I read her work If anybody had told me before the Chance Assassin series that I would end up adoring two sociopathic murderers, I would just worry about them But, it s happened Unlike the first book, the sequel picks up at a point in Frank and V s relationship where not everything is perfect They couldn t be doing worse after retiring from the life of assassins, and to make their situationfun they end up having to deal with Frank s former partner Bella returning while they have his family visiting from the States The characters held over well from the first book to this one, I adored gettinginfo on Frank, and as always, Vincent s mouth is a liability What was impressive was that everything that happened in LR felt necessary for the characters involved Frank and V are forced to confront each other over issues that they ve left unresolved, and they have to deal with many that they never thought that they d have Their relationship moved from lusty teenager adoration into an actual relationship, one with problems that can include anything from a broken sink to whose turn it is to bury their victims What s not to love This book may not be for everybody Anybody who can t deal with gleeful murder scenes, rough sex, silent arguments, or Czech footwear will be very disappointed

    2.5 stars.The blurb is missleading, the book is not about Vincent and Frank, but about Casey and Bella.Who are, to put it with Bella s words, plain fucking boring.I did loved loved, loved LOVED Chance Assassin and was really happy to read, that the author would write a sequel Now I kinda wish, I wouldn t have read this, because the book was really disappointing.While I like Casey, I find him to less interesting for a bigger story He is the nice sidecharacter who you like, when he appears, bu 2.5 stars.The blurb is missleading, the book is not about Vincent and Frank, but about Casey and Bella.Who are, to put it with Bella s words, plain fucking boring.I did loved loved, loved LOVED Chance Assassin and was really happy to read, that the author would write a sequel Now I kinda wish, I wouldn t have read this, because the book was really disappointing.While I like Casey, I find him to less interesting for a bigger story He is the nice sidecharacter who you like, when he appears, but not have much own character to drive a plot although you can argue that the book has not much plot to begin with However Bella Bella is just annoying She is a whiny, egocentric woman, trapped in the mind of a little girl, whose only interests lies in shopping designer clothes Nothing .They love relationship is unbelievable and were going on my nerves, because it is just you are fucking hot from Caseys side the reason he falls in love with her she is hot Great and you don t stop stalking and talking to me, although I treat you like shit from Bellas side.They both have no chemistry, nothing Nada, niente, nix view spoiler And to get her pregnant was the worst plotdesicion ever Argh, I wanted to scream Seriously not only that the most egocentric woman in this world gets pregnant, Casey is immediately happy about it, although they are sleeping just 3 to 4 months with each other and known each other for almost the same amount of time He They doesn t don t even discusses it, it s just you are pregnant Let me kiss you hide spoiler It is very rare, that I skip pages or scenes, the most time I am unabble to do it, I clench my teeth and fight through it, but here I DID skip scenes, because they were so boring and annoying I couldn t really stand this couple.Besides the plot of the book does not arrive until 45% of the book, it disappears between 60 and 70% again, but then it was nice.Only that, the books deserves 1 star.Which rescues the book were Vincent and Frank, who are sidecharacters in their own book And that is sad, because their relationship is suffering and it is handled like a sidestory that isn t very important The ending of their storypart was kinda rushed because too much time for Bella and Casey , which was sad The solution of their problems came kinda fast after most of their storyline Frank denies exactly that They deserved .I did like the other sidecharacters, especially Silva, who was really nice written, and Deaglan I did hope to spendtime with these two characters view spoiler but sadly not Bella and Casey were killed, but these two hide spoiler , and that they would have beenexpanded, but sadly no Joe too was an interessting character which I like.Overall the plot, when it cames was really great, but sadly rushed It could have been much much , but it was sacrificed on the altar of the relationship of Bella and Casey which is basically I want to fuck andfuck speaking from Bella And throwing designer labels through the book.I read the author plans to write twobooks and to be honest, I will not read them, if they focus again on Bella and Casey The author lost me as an auto buy reader, I will wait for reviews how the books are and will decide then
