I couldn't really feel the chemistry happen between Blue and Black in the beginning. They just seemed really annoying to me.
And Blue's incessent need to get Black out of his head was so annoying. It seemed like a plain old refrigerator reminded him of her and all he was trying to do in the first half of the book was to get her out of his head.
The world building.... There was none.
It seemed like Showalter ...more
The story centers on Evie (Black) and Blue two equally attractive super-secret agents linked together by Micheal (Black's father, Blue's boss.) I presume most will be reading this for the love-story, and in that respect Black and Blue does not disappoint. Huge swathes of page-time is devoted to the relations ...more

You know you love a book when you stay up until 1:30 am reading after being up since 5:30 am and having to wake up at 6am the next day. Yes that is how much I loved Black and Blue. How can you not love this book.
Let’s start with the cover: Amazingly Gorgeous!!
The Hero: Tall+ tattooed + brooding + famous + football player + lady killer + violet eyes = YUMMY with an edge of if you mess with me I can kill you with a thou ...more
I looove this series.
Gena showalter'ın yazdığı hiçbirşey ortalamanın altı olmuyor. Bir üst serisini(Alien Huntress ) okumadığım halde otherworld assasin serisini gerçekten çok sevdim. Blue ve evie black arasında nefretle başlayan bir aşk mevzubahis . blue çok güçlü bir uzaylı evie ise blue'nun insan patronu michael'in kızı. michael blue'ya daha en başında kızıyle çıkamayacağına dahi yasak koyuyor. kızım off limits diyor.:D gönül bu yasak falan dinlemez ...more
“Good thing I always carry a knife.”
Another 5 stars for Gena Showlater.
After being severely injured, the only one Blue can trust is his sworn emeny, Evie Black. Evie has had enough experience to know that apart from being an excellent assassin, Blue is a ladies man. What she doesn't realize though is that being a "he-whore" isn't his choice but a requirement for his job...
Evie and Blue must work to ...more
Corbin Blue is an Otherworlder with some pretty cool superpowers. Amongst them are the ability to heal, move objects, and super strength. Though officially he is a star football player in the ...more
Като изключим обаче всеизвестната ми пристрастност към авторката.... книгата продължава да си е повече от добро четиво. Няма да давам спойлери за историята и нейното развитие. Това, което трябва да ...more
In Black and Blue, we are reading Corbin’s experience with what happened in Last Kiss Goodnight and the explosion that changed the Otherworld Assassins’ worlds. Corbin is forced to get help from the one person, he shouldn’t get help from because of what happened in the past and because of his boss telling him to stay away from her. Unfortunately, she is the only one that can heal him and help him at the moment. He also can’t trust anyone else. Evangeline ne ...more
Corbin Blue's powers are extraordinary and at times, unbelievable, making him almost invincible both ON the field as an awesome football player, and OFF the field as an amazing Black Ops agent working for the government, an agency headed by Michael, the man who saved, trained and mentored Blue.
Evangeline Black is no less, though she quit the agency headed by her father Michael after her little sister was murdered. S ...more
Best-selling author Gena Showalter is known for her paranormal romances, and on one level I’m saddened that it has taken me this long to read her work. The Otherworld Assassin series is my first foray into one of Showalter’s creative worlds where paranormal beings coexist with humans, albeit not always peacefully. It looks like this series is a spinoff from her Alien Huntress series, but from my experience, it wasn’t necessary to have read any of the books from that series befor ...more
I couldn't wait to read Black and Blue after what happened in book one- Last Kiss Goodnight- and I devoured this one sitting and didn't get to sleep until 3:30am. Totally worth it.
I absolutely loved Corbin Blue. Tall, famous, secret agent, tattooed, sexy. Perfect combination. I mean, what else could you want from a guy? And Evie- I loved her personality. The ...more
I had high expectations for Black and Blue, especially after loving the first book. But unfortunately I had to put this book down. After 100 pages, and I wasn't into it, I decided to set it aside for now, and maybe at some time at a later date I will pick it up again. But with all the books on my schedule I need to read, I knew I couldn't keep trying to read this after three days. One of the problems I think was my issue wi ...more
Also love the full version of the cover on her website, Corbin is so HOT should of used that one!
Just finished reading the book and couldn't put it down. I loved, loved this book. It was just like her Alien Huntress series which I loved so it's kinda like the series is still continuing specially with little cameos of Dallas and Noelle. I was worried that Otherworld Assassins was going to be different after reading the first book but I'm so glad it's not.
The last thing Evangeline Black expected to find in her bed is an almost dead Corbin Blue. Corbin has always been her least favorite pers ...more
Evangeline Black. Corbin Blue. Yes, Black and Blue. Corbin is part of the Otherworld Assassins team and he's kind of the playboy. The card they use when seducing a girl to get ahead in the mission is required. Evangeline is Michael's daughter. She grew up thinking her father didn't love her as much as the men he rescued from terrible pasts and made part of his team. She's been determined ever since to prove her worth as part of the organization until tragedy strikes too close to home.
I liked Evie a lot more than Vika in the previous book and I think I like Blue better than Solo. Evie is really badass and uses words like amazeballs; wh ...more

Kid definitely didn't know who he was. There would be fawning.
Wait. He looked that scary?
Grinning, Evie said, "Nah. You've got nothing to worry about, squirt. Mr. Brothario is a lover, not a fighter."
Blue glared at her.
Drew flipped him off before rushing inside his house, probably to hide.
"Aw, how sweet," Evie said, settling in her seat. "I think he was trying to warn you against unleashing your dreadful wrath on sweet, innocent me."
"If the poor kid thinks you're sweet, I have to fear his home life.”
