A PURPLE HIPPO?
on 29 December 2012
Mateo Esposito is a hired assassin for the US Government and has never denied or hidden his sexuality. Riley Flynn is CEO of Flynn Electronics and isn't as forthcoming with his sexuality. Mateo receives his new orders and heads out towards his next target. His next target? Take out Riley Flynn. He can't for the life of him figure out why. Riley is so clean, he squeaks. Something just doesn't add up to Mateo. When Riley becomes the target for a hit man, Mateo has the job of protecting him. So begins the start of a beautiful relationship.
This book kind of snuck up on me. I was pretty sceptical about reading it. It was recommended to me by Amazon because of my past purchases. By the end of the first page I couldn't stop reading. The emotional connection between Mateo and Riley is a rollercoaster of ups and downs. You, the reader, are taken on that rollercoaster of emotion with them. You will laugh out loud, you will cry, you will smile, you will sit there with your mouth hanging open and you will fall in love with a purple stuffed toy hippo. I kid you not.
Throughout the book we are introduced to other characters that have their own stories to tell. If, like me, you read A Marked Man and loved it, you will definitely buy the other books in the collection as well. You don't necessarily need to buy each book to be able to follow the characters. You can just buy the books that interest you. However once you have read this book, you will be hungry for more and will actually be curious as to what will happen next.
I finished the book within a couple of hours and then went on to download more from the author. Needless to say I am a HUGE fan and I cannot wait for the next instalment of this collection to come out. I love Sandrine's work. It just gets better and better with each book. I'm curious to see if that purple hippo will pop up again ...
