    THE BEST BOOK I’VE READ ALL YEAR Wow that’s a pretty big statement to make isn’t it? But if it’s true it’s true Ms Castle took her characters and her storyline from Chance Assassin My Review Here made them damaged fragmented cracked and then she doused them with even of the peculiar and hilarious depravity that she alone can dispense Every page every line was pure entertainment ▪ DEPRAVED ▪ IMMORAL ▪ DEBAUCHED ▪ ▪ OBSCENE ▪ DECADENT ▪ ROMANCE ▪ ▪ DYSFUNCTIONAL ▪ THE CHARACTERS Frank – Poor beautiful guilty and sometimes clueless Frank It’s all on his back Everything Maybe if he’d get V on his back everything would be better already Because the guilt he felt was never over killing It was the lack of it the remorselessness which spoke of true evil Vincent V – The most spoiled conceited outrageous brat in MM fiction and he deserves every damned spanking he asks for That was what made Vincent so perfect His raison d’être He was feminine to the point of being non threatening and masculine enough to prove Frank was homosexual after all Not to mention obscenely beautiful Casey – Innocence incarnate Beautiful sweet gifted Throughout the book I wanted to protect him from anything dangerous or obscene but he’s surrounded by it constantly In book 1 I may have thought Casey simple Here he’s alive bright and fantastic He was a mere boy with a crush Hardly even handsome with his silly long hair He was androgynous the way models had become with an interesting than attractive face and a thin sexless body And he was an artist for fuck’s sakes He probably didn’t even have a criminal record Bella – Barely five feet tall bitchy deadly and so damned funny I couldn’t help but fall in love with her It takes a lot for me to fall for a female character these days but I’d be Bella’s bitch any day She’d cut me though But who cares ‘cus she’d wrap me in mink kiss my head and then kick me She applied lipstick as she walked her Manolo Blahnik stiletto boots leaving holes in the snow like stab wounds THE STORY “Vincent thinks we should kill all five of them He’s bored” Frank was also bored but unlike Vincent he had chosen retirement And that decision along with the reasons behind it continued to put a strain on their relationshipFull of snappy self aware immoralityFrank and Vincent have retired to the French countryside to live out their days as normal citizens Aww can you hear the birds singing in the trees and the dogs wagging their tales? Well you could if it weren’t for Vincent shooting at raw meat nailed to the trees to stay in shape Fortunately for us they aren’t normal at all and retired life won’t suit them for long Casey Frank’s brother his mother and stepdad have come to visit andwell never mind because that doesn’t matter at all What does matter is that Casey meets the most debauched and coutur'd female in existence Enter Bella Frank’s sister dripping from head to toe in Versace and weapons she is the rudest foulest meanest most wonderful character I’ve had the pleasure of falling for Yep you heard me I fell for the female lead Even impossible is the dubious and uniue pairing of Casey and Bella For one minute I thought this het couple might steal the show and I was worried because this is MY gay romance dammit OH Yeah There is a huge twisted mystery packed with murder assassins blood death sex and intrigue In fact there’s so much going on in this story from every angle that it’s going to work your head Most of this book reads like the exciting ending of other books The energy and wit run throughout Bring your thinking cap ‘cus Ms Castle is going to throw a lot your way THE WRITING First off you need to know that this book is written with alternating POV’S which differs from Chance Assassin’s first person present tense writing This matters because it isn’t just Vincent’s thoughts that we need to see in this book For me it didn’t matter whether we were in V’s Frank’s Casey’s or Bella’s head it was all great and I just wanted of each one unlike when an author slips you into a POV that you just don’t care aboutSecondly and maybe importantly is how much this author has improved her writing It’s miles beyond her work in the first book Her already colorful characters are not only instantly memorable but they’re also endearing Endearing assassins you say? Yes I do say Lastly I’m putting Nicole Castle on my uirky authors pedestal with my favorites Douglas Adams and Jasper Fforde Her creation of outlandish assassins tearing at your heartstrings deserves no less I would like to thank Nicole Castle for providing me with an ARCReview Copy in exchange for my honest review Take a look at my MaleMale Romance Book Blog

    DNF at 24%Soafter I gave this book the second chanceNow it is officiallyI won't try it the third timeYou should pay me for it I liked the first book Chance Assassin A Story of Love Luck and Murder A lot Up to the 85% The rest 15% pissed me offI am not going to read a book that consists EXACTLY of the story that I DIDN'T LIKE AT ALL I had a feeling the author took these 15% from the first book added strange characters as if it was already not enough and deepened the most uninteresting part of the plot GrrrrrrrWHY?Sometimes it is good to stop in time This book is an evidence for itI would recommend it only those readers who enjoyed the ending of Chance Assassin A Story of Love Luck and Murder

    SoI don't know Look I loved the first one even though it was disturbing I really really liked it and I would recommend itThis one sighI knew with the retirement that there would be issues between Frank and V and I was prepared for that prepared for them to not be what they once were or trying to figure out where to go from there but what I was not prepared for was BellaBella is a selfish immature soul sucking witch I spent the first fifty percent of the book hoping someone would tie her to a chair beat her within an inch of her life make her watch while they broke the heels off her shoes and burned her clothes and then finally just fucking shoot herSo yeahBella was a bit of an issue for me And not just because she's so awful cuz let's face it V is fucking psychotic but not only was she awful than the serial killers and psychopaths she took away from my Frank and V time I wanted them and she was simply not compelling enough for me to have to get her perspective every other chapterNowI love Casey I do But again Bella is not complicated or intriguing so even though I love Casey there isn't enough love in the world to make up for Bella in the first half of that bookNow I've ranted The second half was great I was feeling it It took me weeks to get through the first 50% and I finished the second half today It was on point it was my guys again and their psychotic dysfunctional but totally addicting relationship and interactions it was everything I wanted Somaybe you won't mind Bella and you'll have no problemsOverall 3 starsIssues Bella not enough V and FrankI think Ms Castle is a fantastic writer she writes vivid interesting and consistent characters I will be reading from her

    Leaving this unrated for now I thoroughly enjoyed the first book and I really wanted to love this too So am sad to say this was only disappointing to me I struggled heavily for the first half of the book I wanted way action for some interesting things to actually happen But what really killed my remaining interest was how much page time the MF couple got in this book I liked their brief appearances in the first book but here they seemed like different characters to me I just couldn't get into their POV chapters or the idea of them as a couple at all I was wholly uninterested in seeing their whole storyline play out when I would have preferred that time spent on Vincent and Frank or just action In the end I felt mostly bored for too long Sorry

    If Martin Scorsese and uentin Tarantino got married and made a filthy mouthed word baby I’m almost certain it would come out looking like Les Recidivists book two in the Chance Assassin series Les Rec scores another huge win for author Nicole Castle as this installment reads something like a uirky family comedy—if by comedy it means the uirky family exists in a perfectly balanced union between committing mass murder and trying to avoid being executed in the most heinous possible way Sometimes by each other Who knew death and dismemberment could be so much fun? Not to mention fashionableOne of the things I wasn’t expecting when I started reading Les Recidivists was the emergence of the side characters who were introduced briefly in Chance Assassin A Story of Love Luck and Murder There are parallel and intersecting storylines in this installment of the series that deliver the crazy in a fast paced stylized don’t blink or you’ll miss something—someone getting shot stabbed blown up beaned eye gouged in a cosmetic incident things like that—way and while I at first thought I was going to be disappointed by the author’s decision to let those side characters hog the spotlight I was wrong So very very wrong to think itThis book is a continuation of the slightly slantways romance of now husbands Frank Sullivan Moreaux and Vincent Sullivan Moreaux to be sure but with Casey Evans and Bella Moncrief thrown into theromantic? mix—in uite possibly the most insane matchmaking scheme ever—Frank and Vincent take on the added role of keepers and handlers in this murderous monkey cage of love Frank tries to keep order V just wants to stir up trouble and kill people and their matrimonial bliss is now under considerable strain brought on by their retirement from the assassination biz as well as the residual effects of Vincent’s injuries injuries neither Frank nor Vincent can seem to uit blaming themselves for Guilt really doesn’t make for a good threesome It also doesn’t make for the kind of sex Vincent wants because Frank is too busy treating V like he’s going to shatter into a million little pieces at any moment Where’s a little autoerotic asphyxiation when a guy needs it?Then the plot thickensSo Casey and Bella they’re Frank’s surrogate brother and sister how fun is that? Casey the pansexual wide eyed high hopes everything is glitter and Technicolor glee artist Casey And Bella the fudge you you fudgety fudging fudgewad I’ll blow your fudging head off but you better not get your brain on my shoes assassin Bella Only she didn’t say fudge See ScorseseTarantino word baby I loved her Theirs is a union of sugarplums and smoking guns yes there’s MF sex in this one for those of you who care and watching these two fall in love was hysterical Really it was like watching my belovedly flake headed Casey repeatedly stick his tongue in a light socket but then miracle of miracles the light socket decided not to fry his craniumAnd then these two gave my heart all the feels it could feel It was not only unexpected but was also a lovely bonus to all the death and dismembermentNicole Castle is a masterful storyteller Just when you think Les Rec should be fined for disorderly conduct everything gets wrapped up and strangled to within an inch of its perfect life blissfully delivering Frank and Vincent—the dynamic duo of mischief mayhem and madness—back into the murder business it would seem which has left me with the hope that there will be foul mouthed word babies coming soon to a shallow grave near meThis author has written two books that have vaulted her onto my auto buy list They are laugh out loud funny one moment mildly disturbing the next; then the next thing you know your heart is in your throat They both kept me turning page after page just to see which I’d feel next and I was never disappointed Other than when they ended

    I have to say that I’m surprised by both Miss Castle and myself when I read her work If anybody had told me before the Chance Assassin series that I would end up adoring two sociopathic murderers I would just worry about them But it’s happened Unlike the first book the seuel picks up at a point in Frank and V’s relationship where not everything is perfect They couldn’t be doing worse after retiring from the life of assassins and to make their situation fun they end up having to deal with Frank’s former partner Bella returning while they have his family visiting from the States The characters held over well from the first book to this one I adored getting info on Frank and as always Vincent’s mouth is a liability What was impressive was that everything that happened in LR felt necessary for the characters involved Frank and V are forced to confront each other over issues that they’ve left unresolved and they have to deal with many that they never thought that they’d have Their relationship moved from lusty teenager adoration into an actual relationship one with problems that can include anything from a broken sink to whose turn it is to bury their victims What’s not to love?This book may not be for everybody Anybody who can’t deal with gleeful murder scenes rough sex silent arguments or Czech footwear will be very disappointed

    25 starsThe blurb is missleading the book is not about Vincent and Frank but about Casey and BellaWho are to put it with Bella's words plain fucking boringI did loved loved loved LOVED Chance Assassin and was really happy to read that the author would write a seuel Now I kinda wish I wouldn't have read this because the book was really disappointingWhile I like Casey I find him to less interesting for a bigger story He is the nice sidecharacter who you like when he appears but not have much own character to drive a plot although you can argue that the book has not much plot to begin with However Bella Bella is just annoying She is a whiny egocentric woman trapped in the mind of a little girl whose only interests lies in shopping designer clothes Nothing They love relationship is unbelievable and were going on my nerves because it is just you are fucking hot from Caseys side the reason he falls in love with her she is hot Great and you don't stop stalking and talking to me although I treat you like shit from Bellas sideThey both have no chemistry nothing Nada niente nixview spoilerAnd to get her pregnant was the worst plotdesicion ever Argh I wanted to screamSeriously not only that the most egocentric woman in this world gets pregnant Casey is immediately happy about it although they are sleeping just 3 to 4 months with each other and known each other for almost the same amount of time HeThey doesn'tdon't even discusses it it's just you are pregnant Let me kiss you hide spoiler

    DNFI LOVED the first book What the hell happened here?I HATE Bella I HATE Casey I could give two shits about either of them let alone their love storyI came for the depravity sex and love between Frank and Vincent and at this point they thinktalk about sex than we actually see any on the pageI'm bored and I don't care about what the author clearly thinks is the real story of book 2I've been told that if you make it to the 50% mark it gets better but who has time for this shit? I'm bailing
