Description

In a novel filled with comedy, romance and edge-of-your-seat suspense, a legendary, retired hitman and a younger, ambivalent assassin join forces to rescue a kidnapped child, while they, themselves, are being hunted by a third, sadistic predator––with orders to kill them both.

Sammy, ‘Lover Boy’ Vivino, the retired legendary hitman, answers his doorbell to find a beautiful young woman at the threshold. Her silenced pistol aimed at his heart, however, quickly dashes any hopes for romance. For this woman is Angelica Fortuna, a conflicted, wisecracking assassin, nicknamed l’angelo della morte – The Angel of Death. Her father, Philadelphia’s Don Vito Fortuna, has sent her to New York with one simple order: kill Lover Boy!

Angelica, though, has her own agenda and soon joins Vivino in a daunting, desperate race to rescue a kidnapped child, while simultaneously falling in love with another man she barely knows. Unfortunately, because of Angelica’s paternal defiance, she and Sammy will soon face an additional, deadly obstacle – another Fortuna assassin. And this sadistic killer has equally straightforward orders: kill Lover Boy, l’angelo della morte, and whoever stands in the way.

Lover Girl, book #2 in the Lover Boy series, combines often hilarious dialogue, tender romance, and nail-biting suspense while concurrently examining the true value of family and friendship – all climaxing in two, edge-of-your-seat battles for survival you won’t soon forget.

This was my first entrance into this series and I think the first time reading anything by this author.
I was NOT disappointed. The people were interesting and complex and there is plenty of drama, humor, unexpected romance, danger. Okay there was also some violence too. Nothing super over the top with that though.
From the beginning Angelica and Sammy Vivino/Sammy/ a.k.a. Lover Boy pulled me in with their very dramatic first meeting. And they pulled me right along all the way through.
There is several different dangerous plots that both Sammy and Angelica are thrust into but they definitely rise to the occasion, time and again. They also began to gather Sammy's old friends and some new friends to band together as a new "family" group. I liked that. The help that they wanted to give concerning the kidnapped child is something that helped band their new family group together.
When I finally got to the end of the story, I felt like I could finally take a "Whew" breath. It was just that intense!
It had an ending filled with hope and made me want to hope that there would be more to this series.
