PNR Review: Black and Blue (Otherworld Assassin) Mass Market Paperback

I've finished "Black and Blue" the 2nd book in her Otherworld Assassin series by Gena Showalter.

New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter’s pulse-pounding paranormal series continues with an electrifying story about the ultimate warrior and his prize: a beautiful woman he will do anything to possess.


Corbin Blue is a man of many talents. One of the most powerful otherworlders ever born, he is wealthy, a professional football star, and a legend in the bedroom. But only a select few know he is also a black ops agent and there is no better killer. When he and his crew are attacked and separated, he’s forced to turn to his boss’s daughter for help — a woman with even more secrets than Blue.


Evangeline Black has always been wary, guarded. No man has ever breached her walls. Until Blue. He has never been denied something he wants, and now he’s decided he wants her. As he sweeps her into his double life of seduction, intrigue, and danger, he helps her see beyond the darkness of her past. But as an enemy closes in, Blue will have to let Evie go to keep her safe — even though he’d rather die than live without her.

My Review:

Corbin Blue works as a black ops agent and he has a reputation as a playboy. He is one of the most powerful otherworlders, wealthy and a famous football player.  He has always been attracted to Evangeline but he considers her off limits because she's the bosses daughter.

Evangeline has left the assassin world behind after a job got botched and is now a doctor.  She agrees to work with Corbin after finding out her father is missing.  She's been attracted to Blue but she doesn't appreciate his playboy status.

I didn't really like Evangeline because she has a prickly and sarcastic personality when dealing with Corbin.  I admire her too because she does speak her mind and isn't afraid to use her smartness when needed.


Thanks Simon and Schuster Canada for sending me this book to review, greatly appreciated!
