Three assassins and a… baby?
How many assassins does it take to change a diaper?
Three assassins have met their match…and it wears diapers.
Triggerman, Inc., Book 1
Noel “Ice” Cavanaugh’s method is foolproof. Get in, do the job, get out, melt away without a trace. Chill out until his next mark is assigned. Neat. Tidy. No mistakes.
This time, though, something isn’t right. Two somethings. First a random attack that feels not-so-random. Then he discovers someone’s left a baby on his doorstep with a note claiming it’s his. And the sexy neighbor who found the boy first has too many questions in her eyes to ignore.
When her handsome, mysterious neighbor suddenly asks her out on a date, Adeline Rose has suspicions he’s fishing for “help” with his bundle of…joy? By date’s end, she’s convinced NOel’s just as distant as he seems—until a scorching goodnight kiss ends with sex against the nearest wall, the heat between them burning away all thoughts of careful.
Now Noel has more than one problem on his hands. Splitting baby duty between three badass assassins, figuring out how to fit more time with Addy into his no-room-for-error schedule…and keeping both of them safe from the danger he’s increasingly sure has followed him home.
Warning: Beware a killer with a heart of gold, a baby who needs constant changing, and unrequited love that’s actually quite…requited.
BLP REVIEW ~ Tracy
I’ve been a reader and fan of Marie Harte’s books for a long time now and I was delighted when the lady herself announced another new series was being released…
Contract Signed was a great start to the Triggerman, Inc. series!
3 badass assassins, an unexpected baby, a sexy neighbour, intrigue, mystery, action and secret & spies, along with a series of things that keep getting in the way of our main couple getting it together all lead to a really great, engaging story!
Noel Cavanaugh was nothing like Adeline Rose expected – not that she knew much about her sexy neighbour, even though she’s been lusting over him for the last couple of years.
Noel comes across as cold and uninterested whenever Addy has come into contact with him in the past… turns out there’s more to the man than meets the eye. He had been keeping tabs on his nosey little neighbour for a while and was more interested in her than she’s ever imagine! I really liked him. He was protective of Addy, as well as the baby (whether it’s his or not) and would do anything to keep her safe.
Addy was funny and likable. Outgoing and openly friendly, she was the complete opposite of the well named ‘Ice’, but they were great together!
Add in Jolene, who is Addy’s best friend, and Deacon and Hammer, who are 2 associates/friends of Noel, and you have some craziness and laugh out loud moments as well as a nice introduction to the second book in this series!
There was the expected elements of humour, heat and romance that I’ve come to expect (and look forward to) in Marie’s books. I loved this read and I can’t wait to find out what happens next with the sexy assassins….
I’ve giving Contract Signed 5 well deserved stars.
