Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for the complimentary ARC. All opinions provided are my own.
This book isn’t quite Assassin Lite but there are so many things that got to my heart nonetheless.
🌻 Like a deliberately annoying lead + the lead who gets exasperated by him.
🌻 A grumpy & the sunshine combo.
🌻 Forced proximity.
🌻 I have to trust you (even though I shouldn’t) if I want to survive.
🌻 Let’s make a home together.
In N. R. Walker’s The Kite Harry & Asher are both assassins who go on the run together once they realize that hits have been put out on both of them.
Neither man is quick to trust so that makes the inevitable walls coming down all the better. The steam had me fanning my cheeks, the caretaking scenes grabbed at my heart, & I was genuinely happy to see them at the end, forging a new, safe life separate from the violence of their past.
Be warned: there’s a lot of violence in this one & lots of deaths, some committed by the leads. In an effort to establish their own safety Harry also threatens a villain’s family in front of the villain only & while I think he was bluffing I prefer my leads to make less threats against possibly innocent people please & thanks.
But on the whole The Kite really satisfied.
4.5 ⭐️. Out now!
Give me that HEA, please.
