Daniela’s review

YES! Finally something I enjoyed!!!!!

I could do a happy dance for this. This got me out of my reading slump, so thank god for Amazon’s sales!

Orphaned on the streets as a baby, Nashville Brown, a.k.a Kill Operative 3, knows better than to rely on anyone. With heightened senses and superhuman strength to survive, she’s been raised as the perfect assassin. 

The trick to her success? Keeping everyone, even her best friend, at arm’s length. 

Losing his entire family in the span of a year, Carter Smith left his ability to love buried deep in their graves. His only concerns now are completing his missions and effortlessly charming the next temptress to warm his bed. 

The key to his accomplishments? Working alone mixed with a Casanova smile. 

But when a deadly weapon needs to be stopped from falling into the wrong hands, the lone wolves find themselves thrown into an explosive partnership. Can Carter and 3 lower their guns aimed at one another long enough to succeed, or will their unwillingness to compromise end up destroying more than their perfect records? Whatever their differences, both agree on one thing—in the game of lies and deceit, the line between friend and foe is often blurred by blood splatter. 

I absolutely enjoyed this book from the moment I opened it.

This cover had gotten my attention a while back, but I’d never given it a thought about reading it, up until I saw that it was on sale for only 99¢ on Amazon so I got it immediately, and I am SO FUCKING HAPPY I DID.

I’ve been under this horrible slump. I haven’t liked a single book I’ve read in the last couple of weeks and it has destroyed me. Even though I’ve tried to like them, I just find them boring and like there’s something very important missing. I don’t know if you’ve felt that too, but man… it’s so FRUSTRATING.

So, this book changed everything 😀

I highly recommend reading this if you’re in the mood to read something cool and funny and as sweet as two assassins can get. I swear, it was SO GOOD.

So, we have 3 who’s this girl who’s killed more people she can count. She has the all the qualities of a superhuman. She can hear everything, smell everything and do practically anything and the government noticed so she became one of their operatives from a young age. So she’s had to keep everyone away from her, not that she has many people in her life, except her best friend. Who, even though she has to lie to her, she manages to keep her as close as she can, since she’s the only family she’s ever known. 3 or Nashville can get infuriating at times, but her quick retorts and sarcasm makes her such a badass character.

Then we have Carter, who’s this adorable prick. He’s so full of himself I don’t know how he didn’t explode, but man… I enjoyed every single word he said or thought. He’s funny and the kind of guy you just want to smack in the head every time he says something, but he’s someone who you just know will have your back. And also, after everything, he’s someone that gives his entire self when he sees how valuable you are. He’s wonderful and I loved him.

This entire book was such a wonderful experience. It’s not that it was so unpredictable or anything like that. I could see what was coming but I was still excited about reading it. I don’t know if my excitement for overcoming my stupid reading slump was too much or what, but I laughed and I swooned and I got angry at times but damn it if I didn’t enjoy every single word.

Read it. Read it. READ IT. You won’t regret it.
