I WOULD READ A FULL NOVEL LIKE THIS.

BLOG || INSTAGRAM

I saw this as a recommendation on Bookstagram as a light-hearted, entertaining, and a novella that’ll make you smile. And they were right!

This was a short and simple novella with a kinda dark background. Our MC has been wrapped up into gang work and when she tries to escape she runs into a cute stranger. Then said stranger is blackmailed into being her hitman. Y’all, what a plot line. I can’t say I’ve heard this before!

It was definitely a roma

Fun, quick read

This novella was a fun, quick read and definitely worth the buy. I'm typically not a fan of present tense first person, but I'm glad I stuck to it. A cute romance with fun action.

I started reading this aloud to my mom and couldn't stop! It's a funny and wonderful romantic comedy/thriller book. I really like that for a sort of romance it's clean too, which I really appreciate. It has a quite bit of action and fighting scenes too. This is exactly the kind of book I love to read! I highly recommend it! ...more

This book was so fun! It called to all my loves: suspense, romance, humor, thriller- without profanity and inappropriate content. I was laughing and making predictions of the ending the first half, and cheering, crying, and on the edge of my seat the last half. A book I can recommend to all my friends and family.

I opened this book up at 9:30 p.m & stayed up till I fiinshed it. It was a fun, and light read. The h was quirky & the H endearing. I enjoyed their banter. I didn't even care if the whole idea of a hitman giving you time to do a bucket list is plausible. One reviewer complained it was dark. Well, yes hitman and being blackmailed is dark, I suppose so maybe it's a dramedy? I think I'll try this author again! I laughed & smiled & enjoyed the story ...more

Cute and fun quick read!

Although there were some darker and grittier scenes, overall it was a fun story that had some truly funny scenes. The romance was a pretty slow burn, but especially toward the end, there were also some scenes that hit me right in the feels.

Looking forward to reading more by this author!

(Technical side note and not relevant to my rating: In my edition, the chapter headers were counting wrong.)

An unexpected adventure with twists and turns.

I enjoyed this story, and laughed out loud on a few occasions. The witty comments by Jessica, her forthright personality and 'go-getter' approach to her situation made for a great read.

This was a lot better than I expected, Jess was fun and relatable. I would have liked more though, especially of them together.

Awfully cute. Fun to read. Though the situation is anything but comic, yet I liked the way the author subtly builds brief moments that spring a smile on your face or make you giggle and even laugh out loud. Nice one. Would recommend for a light read.

Wonderful!! A fun, clean romantic comedy! If you are a fan of Matchmaking for Beginners or The Overdue Life of Amy Byler, you will love My Very Own Hitman! Jessica is an overworked, underpaid (haha!) college student being blackmailed by one of the worst gang leaders around. When he realizes she is likely to bolt, he sends a hit man after her. In the chaos that ensues, Jessica finds out she had more to live for than she thought she did.
Completely fun. A quick-read page-turner that will make you

Can't die yet!

Wow! Sometimes good people get to meet other good people when things go bad....and even when they are forced to do bad deeds! This story has some really bad surrounded by dreams and wish-lists coming true before they die! Hooray for communication and truth saving the day and leading to potential true love.

Far-fetched, unbelievable plot combined with little to no depth and development to the characters equals a story that fell short in what I was hoping would be a fun, light romance. I appreciated that it was clean, and I can see potential in the author's writing though. ...more
