Présentation de l'éditeur

Joss Kurtis kills people for a living, and she is very dedicated to her work. She has structured her entire life around her job, marrying a man and having his children to establish a stable, Midwestern family facade to hide behind. When she isn’t working she’s Jocelyn Webb, a dedicated if detached mother whose job often takes her out of town. She works for an anonymous company, contacted only by a handler who provides the names and locations of her latest target. Old or young, male or female, she doesn’t discriminate. Her methods vary, but there is one constant: never get emotionally involved.

After her ninety-second kill, Joss is assigned an apprentice, a young woman who has been also been recruited as an assassin. She names the girl Echo rather than bothering to learn her true name and sets out to teach her the ropes of their chosen profession. Over the next few weeks Echo accompanies Joss on her jobs to get a first-hand look at the murder business.

To her surprise, Echo proves to be a natural at the job and Joss soon begins to develop feelings for her unwanted tagalong. As Echo’s tutelage nears its completion, Joss is forced to decide between the life she’s built and throwing everything away for something entirely alien to her: love.

I need a sequel. Echo need to tell her side of the story. This book took me to a place I've never been. Joss is my hero. I don't even care that a man wrote this book. Mr Cannon you are a genius.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wow…that is all 18 juin 2014

Geonn Cannon takes you on a journey with a person that you are drawn to and repulsed by at the same time. Joss is a fantastic anti-hero. You find yourself rooting for her and her happiness and then remember all the awful things she’s done. But it feels so natural and that’s due to great piece of writing. I wouldn’t mind a sequel seeing more of Echo and possible future side-kick (Madison)….just a thought.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Intriguing premise with good twists 1 mars 2015
Par Nikki - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
The book opens with an introduction to Joss, a contract killer leading a double life for nearly two decades. She maintains a family life at home where she pretends to feel for her husband and two children, but her "real life" is tracking and murdering people. She takes on a young woman (Echo) to train and we follow the two as they navigate the seedy world of paid assassinations. I felt very excited about the premise, and what could happen with it.

I found the overall story to be really intriguing. It was fun to follow around this woman that faced no consequences for her actions, and the interactions that demonstrated her lack of conscience were actually really well done. When she asked a man she was about to kill what he got for his daughter for her sixteenth birthday (looking for ideas for her daughter), it really struck home how little she felt about what she was doing, how she was able to disconnect from those she needed to 'deal with'. The one thing that keeps this book from being really good is the inconsistency of the main character. I felt the author went a bit too far showing her having no emotions whatsoever, which made her transition to genuinely caring about someone feel forced and unbelievable. She felt absolutely nothing for her children and didn't seem capable of feeling emotions at all. Which at the beginning made it *really* interesting, but it needed a bit more balance, or more explanatory background showing why she had become like that but still capable of feeling love. I felt like I wasn't reading about a character evolving, but instead like I was reading about two different characters.

There were some time jumps throughout the story showing how Joss got into the business and her initial training, but these were handled well and I didn't feel like I was being jolted back and forth at all. However a lot of the sexual encounters felt a bit gratuitous and like they didn't necessarily fit within the story being told. I did find some mistakes throughout that could have been caught with one more run-through by an editor. Mostly missing commas, wrong articles/words on occasion, but this wasn't enough to pull me out of the story.

I was really intrigued the entire time throughout the narrative, although some of the things that happened did feel a bit unlikely. Particularly the main character suddenly starting to feel emotions for someone when from all previous descriptions I had assumed she had anti-social personality disorder and was incapable of feeling these emotions. I think the author went too far showing how much she doesn't feel emotions or love to be able to make it believable. It had some good twists in it and I didn't expect the ending, but it'll probably be a bit polarizing (I liked the ending). Overall, if you're looking for a different kind of lesfic book, with a unique premise, this is an intriguing choice. If I could, I would give it 3.5 stars

4.0 étoiles sur 5 I totally recommend this book if you are looking for something out ... 4 juin 2015
Par InkedRainbowReads - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I was sent this book by Inked Rainbow Reads in exchange for an honest review.

A truly dark, psychological and totally captivating novel. I had difficulty putting this book down until I reached the inevitable but unpredictable ending.

A real cutting-edge novel where the leading female is almost an anti hero. Really breaking new ground having such a cold dispassionate lead and her protégé being equally ruthless and hard hearted. Their growing attraction for each other only emphasised the cruelty and lack of empathy they displayed to everyone else.

I totally recommend this book if you are looking for something out of the ordinary, it is so well written and unique it holds your interest, even, if at times giving you moments of absolute disquiet.

The only reason I did not give 5 stars was because I felt Joss would not have allowed what happened at the end.

If you are truly a Dexter's fan, you'll love this book. Had a hard time putting it down until the end.
Hoping for a sequel!
