Read in March, 2012

Ok, so this book was really enjoyable, the problem is that the author is so good at world-building, that I CRAVED a bigger-scope story because what she built was really interesting! This is a very VERY romance book, but I felt like it was really well-written (it's no surprise, this is a pseudonym for Katherine Rusch who writes excellent straight Fantasy and Sci-Fi)

It was very much Mr. and Mrs Smith set in space. Yes, the whole assassin thing is totally played, but with a name like "Assassins in Love" I can't really fault anything that happened in the plot based on my 100% knowing what I was in for with the title, haha.

I loved that the lead character was not all Alpha bossy all the time, I loved the main character's chaotic neutral POV. Some of her backstory didn't make sense that she wasn't aware of it before, but whatever. Was I invested and stayed up too late? Yes! Did the Sci-Fi part embarrass me like most Vaginal SF? Nope! So WIN WIN WIN! Nice read! Will read more!

Tamahome Wow, that was fast. Is 50 Shades of Grey next? ;)

Darth Man - the term "chaotic neutral POV" just gave me a total gaming flashback...
"Go for the eyes Boo!"

seth chapin (it's no surprise, this is a pseudonym for Katherine Rusch who writes excellent straight Fantasy and Sci-Fi) Excellent choice. I must say, I understand why Tallis named her dagger as so. You know I know about Thane, but Kathryn is also your first name. It's a pretty. (not trying to be creepy) It's off topic, but it was my denouement tonight :)

Nonny ... "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" set in space? I think I must buy this based on that alone.

message 6: by Kathryn (new)

Kathryn Lancashire I know we usually discuss terrible covers in this genre but man is this a bad title. Was "Romance Novel Featuring Two Assassins" already taken? Marking it as to read anyway and I'll probably enjoy the crap out of it.

Jane Higginson I love the mr and mrs smith movie! this is another book Im gonna have to get then the lists getting so long lol
