RELEASE BLITZ – Killer Instinct (Assassins in Love #1) by Tawna Fenske

He’s a hired gun. A hardened killer.
So how’d he end up bottle-feeding lambs for his best friend’s sister?

Killer Instincts, an all new brother’s best friend romantic comedy, filled with twists and turns from USA Today bestselling author Tawna Fenske, is now live!

Dante didn’t set out to deceive. His favor for a pal in prison got him this farmhand job, and Jen needs help guarding more than her blueberries. Someone’s set on hurting her, and he’ll make damn sure they don’t. She can’t know who sent him or why he’s handier with a handgun than a hoe. But none of that matters more than keeping Jen safe.

To save the girl, he’ll have to pair old skills with new. A princess tea party and an old-fashioned gunfight? Why not. Grape stomping and grenades? Sign him up.

But as the enemy closes in, there’s one skill Dante finds he doesn’t have: The strength to walk away when the job is done.

This was a really good read. After reading Killer Looks, the prequel to the series, I was intrigued by all three hitmen!

I loved Dante. He’s looking for a life away from that of an assassin. The guy has a a protective streak a mile wide and it comes to the fore when he meets Jennifer – youngest sister of his best friend Matteo. Teo has asked him to keep an eye on Jen and the vineyard she owns but how he comes to manage that is a fun read. I liked that he saw Jen for who she was, saw her strength and courage and didn’t try to keep her from standing up for herself….. yeah, he was there to keep her safe but he was also there for her.

Jen hasn’t had the easiest of times lately. Her brother is gone for the time being, her grandmother has passed and her relationship is no longer. Meeting Dante was exactly what she needed but didn’t realise.

They both fight the attraction they have from the got, Dante out of a sense of guilt and loyalty to his best friend, Jen as she’s been hurt and feels like her judgement of people is off. Over the time they spend together they start to open up to each other and their relationship develops.

Suspense, intrigue, mystery, action and betrayal all come together with attraction, heat and humour to make this a great book that I’d happily recommend.

I’m looking forward to both Matteo & Sebastian’s books especially now we know a little more about who their leading ladies are…. Nicole is gonna give Seb a run for his money I’m sure!!!!
