I really enjoyed this read the story line had me hooked I wanted to see what was going to happen hope to hear more about this couple . Kimber showed a lot of strength and cleverness , Rye was a interesting hero not like one I'v read before . The sex was super hot , the only thing I wish that there was more couple scenes between them but overall a great short read .

So much enjoyed Manipulating the Assassin. Great characters, great dialogue and a sexy road trip. Spoiled college girl Kimber is running for her life. Her nasty step brother has stolen her father's company (and killed daddy too) and he wants her back. He sends an assassin, Rye, to bring her home (and make her life hell.) While the assassin knows what he's doing, he can't help but fall for Kimber. And it's so much more complicated than that. Hot sex scenes burn up the page! A great fast read! Wil ...more

Needs a proofreader.

This is a 10,000 word (or thereabouts) short story and it's one of those stories that doesn't seem quite sure what it wants to be. Is it an erotica snippet? Not enough sex in it for that. There's not enough emotional detail for it to be a psychological suspense, we hardly get inside Kimber's head at all despite the story being told in first person.

The story also needs a thorough proofreading. There was a 'door jam' instead of a 'door jamb' in the first couple of pages and at

This is a story which is packed full of secrets, mystery, power struggles, twists and turns, passion, and love. Lauren has outdone herself with the storyline and writing of this wonderful book.

I give Manipulating the Assassin 5 stars. I felt fear for Kimber as she was on the lamb, but even more so once she met up with Rye. I laughed at the lengths she went to trying to manipulate him, and was happy to see someone get what they deserved.

Lauren Reign has delivered another great, all be it, short read. She gave a vivid description of the characters, and brought the plot from beginning to conclusion very well.

Ok let me start out by saying that this was TOO SHORT! I NEED NEED NEED MORE, OH SO MUCH MORE! Lauren Reign kicked things off with a bang, and my heart is still racing after I finished it. It never slowed down, and by the ending, I felt like I just ran a marathon. Her brilliant writing style obviously had me all in from the get go. Twists and turns around every corner kept me on the edge of my seat. And that last twist, well let's just say that loud f-bomb dropping was flying everywhere! Kimber ...more

This is my first book by Lauren Reign and i am glad i was able to voluntarily read an advance readers copy of this excellent short book. Manipulating the Assassin had a bit of suspense, action, twists and turns and romance. I don't want to give to much away but Kimber was kidnapped by her wicked stepbrother who wanted to take over the family empire and hired Rye to be the one to execute the plan but will he be able to? Will Kimber be more than just his prisoner? How will the story end? Pick up a ...more

Before picking up Manipulating the Assassin, I had NEVER heard of Lauren Reign! But I saw romantic suspense and knew I had to give it a shot. This is not the same old assassin ends up falling for his target. Oh no, this was one wild ride and the twists didn't stop coming.

Kimber finds herself literally in the fight for her freedom after her father is gunned down at the hands of her step-brother, Marco. She is quick and is able to give him the slip but she has something Marco wants so he enlists s

I received an arc of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review.

First book I've read by Lauren Reign but definitely was a great time reading! Romantic Suspense is just such a fun genre to read. Add assassins in the mix and you've got a pretty solid book!

Kimber has a wicked step-brother, who murdered her father. While on the run Marco sends an assassin after her. Rye is charged with getting her back to Marco, which turns out to be no easy task. Kimber is a fiery heroine who is stubborn as hell
