I knew the minute I saw him that Levi Agozi was too perfect to be real. I didn't care. He came to me, asked for me, and, dazzled by his dark good looks and the bad-boy aura surrounding him, I gave in. Willingly.

My father is set to become the next governor of Georgia, and he'll use me to get there if he has to. He'll hand me over, virginity and all, to the man with the bigg

description After finishing the short prequel (THE ASSASSIN) I was looking forward to diving right into this book. And I liked it....mostly. (lol) The writing was decent. It is a relatively fast read (under two hours) so the pace moves along quickly. The plot was intriguing. I loved the close bond all the brothers had. The sex was hot. There was no OW or OM drama. However, I wish we had gotten some confirmation on whether Levi slept with any other women during the separation. I don't *think* he did, but it

4.5 stars..
The saga of Levi and Abby as told from Abby's POV.
The assassin out for revenge,and the young, innocent councilman's daughter caught up in the game of vengeance all because of her villainous and duplicitous father.
This is a captive/captor romance with some slightly darker tones,but not into my " trigger" zone.
I enjoyed this one and on to the next saga for this duo.

Well, we learned from the prequel, "The Assassin" that Levi Agozi was no joke... out for revenge after the corrupt, Councilman Derrick Roslyn tried to kill him off but managed to hurt his younger brother, Jeremiah aka Remi instead! What a world...all because Levi turned down Roslyn's assignment so 'Mr. Corrupt Councilman' felt he had to off Levi and leave no evidence of his crime since he was about to run for Governor of Georgia!

Remember, the assassin, Levi has principles and never kill the inn

The plot thickens…

The tangled web that Levi and Abby found themselves in was dark, suspenseful and passion-filled. Kidnapped, Abby absolutely refused to play, or be, the victim. Her strength, even as she found herself alone to deal with things, meant taking those steps to independence she secretly wanted and needed. Of course, those were short steps as Levi kept her close. Their relationship, like the story plot that surrounded them, was not light and fluffy. The complete opposite in fact. Their

This was a pretty good read. Levi Agozi is a hot sexy Alpha male who is also a killer. Abby has been controlled by her father who is running for Governor of Georgia he is willing to use her to get there. When she hooks up with Levi she gives up her v~card to him only to wake up in a different place. Abby finds out she has been kidnapped to get back at her father. I felt bad for Abby. I liked Levi and his brothers they were great secondary characters. These two had a lot of chemistry the sex scen ...more

4.5 amazing stars. The Assassin’s Mark is an entertaining, fast-paced, dark romantic suspense. Secrets are revealed and there are twists and turns that will keep you on your toes. This book is full of action, intrigue, and a whole lot of steam! Seriously, my kindle was smoking from the heat level between alpha bad boy Levi and Abby.

Can one fall in love with an assassin - a killer who believes he doesn’t feel emotions? Absolutely! Levi is a character that you cannot help but love. He is out for

Eh, from prologue aka #0.5 we got the gist of what the series will be like.

And Assassin's Mark stayed faithful to the style.

Also rather mediocre assassin romance ♥
Well, pretty much what one would expect where the assassin doesn't kill the innocent. Meh.
Ok, maybe saying mediocre is too...harsh,'s in the middle ground - not bad, not excellent, but the good/ok/fine ground.

This one is from the girl's pov. The surprise (sarcasm people, sarcasm).

Assassin's Mark was my first Ella Sheridan book, and I am now keen to read more of this series.

I am still unsure how I feel about Levi at this stage. Would it be too much for the man to apologise for the crap that he has put Abby through

And why oh why did Abby have to be a virgin on top of everything else? Just no, we're over that trope ok?

I did like the closeness of the Agozi brothers - and I hope that the other brothers find their

Interesting semi dark (wish it was even darker) and sexy story about revenge and justice. Hot Assassin falls for his mark. Love those kinds of stories. My only complaint is I wish it was told dual POV it would have been nice to hear his thoughts throughout the book. The dialogue was really good so that did help. I really enjoyed the narration of this book. Duet is the best and Jason Clark's voice is always on point Stella Hunter's performance was good too and that is a very good thing since she ...more

Levi Agozi is an assassin who was targeted by one of his former clients, Derrick Roslyn, and now he is planning on turning the table by bringing him down any way he can. For Levi that means kidnapping Derrick’s daughter, Abigail, and using her as a pawn in their game.
Abigail Roslyn has never had a close relationship with her father and has continually felt like a pawn in his life and used how it best fits Derrick’s own personal agenda. Yet never could Abigail have realized the extent her father

Assassin's Mark is the first full-length book in the Assassins series by Ella Sheridan. There is a short prequel that sets up the story for this book.

The author is a hit or miss for me and I am afraid it leans towards the miss most of the time. I think that the author writes weak heroines. Of course, Abby is a virgin when she meets Levi and immediately sleeps with him, cauz reasons. Then he drugs her, she fights her captor for 5 seconds top and allows him to finger fuck her. That is the definit

Assassin's Mark by Ella Sheridan is book Two in the Assassins Series. This starts the story of Abigail 'Abby' Roslyn and Levi Agozi. The previous book just introduced us to Levi, Remi, Eli and the plan to get revenge on Derrick Roslyn using Abby. This book picks up where we left off with Levi listening / watching Abby to get his change to get close to her to use her as a pawn in his revenge plan. Levi only care for has been for his brothers, he knows he can have no love for anyone else. But the ...more

When Levi realizes that the future govenor put a hit out on him he decides to hit below the belt. Kidnap his daughter, Abigail, and use her to seek out his revenge. It backfires when Levi finds out that Derrick is using Abby like a pawn in a chess game.

Abby begins to grow stronger as the pieces of the puzzle begin to fall in place. She realizes just how corrupt her father is.

There is a magnetic pull between Levi and little bird. The Assassin's Mark is told from Abby's pov and how her feeling dev

This is my first book from Ella Sheridan and I really enjoyed it! The story pulled me right in from the beginning. Abby and Levi’s story was steamy and compelling from the moment they met. I loved all the twists and turns this book had and it had me on the edge of my seat. I didn’t want to put it down.

I loved the duet narration from Stella Hunter and Jason Clarke. The story is told from Abby’s point of view and Stella did and amazing job telling her story and capturing Abby’s emotions. Jason’s

This is the second book in this series. Levi is out for revenge and Abby ends up in the cross-fires when she is kidnapped. Will Levi exact his revenge through Abby? What will happen when sparks are flying between these two. This is a fast-paced read with lots of twists and turns, great characters and steamy chemistry. I was hooked from beginning to end.

FULL REVIEW available on Kali's Book Reviews ;) Some spoilers ahead...

If you are a fan of LJ Shen, Levi will put you in mind of a quasi-politer, more stabby Vicious if Vicious were an assassin.  The things this man can do with a KA-BAR and robe ;) I’m not a BDSM fan, but there was one scene where I was kind of like: DAYUM Levi!  It’s not a BDSM romance at all, but once you read the part I’m talking about, you’ll know why my mind was in the gutter. He is a no-nonsense, protective, dominant AF

I started this book as soon as I had finished reading the novella that starts the series off! The novella was intriguing and started off the events of this book! After reading this book, I can say that I liked it a lot, but there was juts something about it that stopped me from loving it! I'm not sure what it was, but I felt like the plot was over too quickly and I wanted more! I did think that this book was a standalone, but it's actually the first book in a series!

The night of her life becomes something completely different as she becomes the pawn in a plan for revenge

Assassin's Mark by Ella Sheridan is the second book in the Assassins series. It picks up where the first book, The Assassin, ends. So you do really need to read this series in order to understand the characters and the basis of the story that is woven along the books in the series. This book is told from the h, Abby's, POV which is interesting but at times frustrating as a reader.

I was pumped to dive into Assassin's Mark after finishing the prequel of this series. But I don't exactly know how I feel about this one. Yes, it had the drama and danger and intensity as the first book but I found myself wanting more.

I liked the different sides of Levi that I got to witness. The protector. The worrier. The marksman. The lover. The brother. It was really the slower, quieter moments between him and Abby that showed how complex of a man he was. He was more than his job. More than

Her father is about to make a run at Governor of Georgia, so he's using her for that by trying to marry her to some douche. Then there's Levi, this hottie bad boy, who she believes just wants her for her, so she hooks up with him, giving him her V-Card, only to wake up the next morning in a totally different place.

Sometimes it pays to step outside your comfort zone. Assassin’s Mark is far different from the books I usually read, with an anti-hero protaganist, a murder mystery plot, and an underlying political theme.

When his brother is wounded in an attack meant for him, assassin Levi Agozi goes after the person who initiated the attack-would be governor Derrick Roslyn. But instead of attacking the man directly, he kidnaps his daughter, Abby. Told by her father that she is to marry his henchman, Abby decid

I received an Advanced Listeners Copy of Assassin's Mark in exchange for an honest review. It snagged me right away.  Levi is mysterious, handsome, and sexy as sin, but he just oozes danger.  Over time we get to experience him opening up to the possibility of more, and it's an excellent ride! Abby starts out as a very timid woman who has been controlled with a heavy hand her whole life. When they danced I had goosebumps because you can feel her waking up to what she might want for herself, when ...more

Narrated by: Stella Hunter, Jason Clarke

Ella Sheridan knows how to write romantic suspense! The perfect mixture of thrills, tension and passion had me from the beginning. This is the first book in Levi and Abby's story and it's told from Abby's point of view. Catching the eye of the very handsome Levi seemed like a good idea. But Abby had no reason to believe there was something more sinister than a one night stand in store for her. Levi has kidn

I'll be honest, I'm more of a romcom fan in general, but the opportunity came my way to listen to an ALC of Assassin's Mark by Ella Sheridan, narrated by Jason Clarke and Stella Hunter, and I had to jump on the chance. Two of my favorite narrators, with a well-respected author of intrigue and grit was a combination that I could not pass up.
